Zacks Marijuana Innovators Rides Wave After Wave of Legalization to Substantial Gains

You are invited to follow this portfolio's buys and sells in real time for the next 30 days.

Special opportunity ends midnight Sunday.

Special opportunity ends in .

The market for legal marijuana continues to expand. In only 10 years, the legislative trend has brought medical and recreational marijuana to several states and the District of Columbia. Conversations surrounding legalizing marijuana on the federal level continue. With the passage of the Cannabis Act in 2018, it's now legal in Canada. Mexico's Supreme Court made private and recreational use legal, and there's movement throughout Europe. As a result of these developments, companies within the space are poised to take off.

As more states and countries get aboard, it's expected that the global legal marijuana market size will reach $102.2 billion by 2030.

Despite the explosive growth of this space, only a few growers, pharmaceuticals, financial firms, suppliers - both established and start-ups - are the true innovators and offer the most profit potential.

Today is the time to get in on Zacks Marijuana Innovators.

Using Zacks Rank Profit Power

This service applies the timely predictive power of the Zacks Rank to buy and sell decisions. From January 1, 1988 to June 3, 2024 this proven system has more than doubled the S&P 500. The average gain has been +24.2% per year.

From $10,000 to More Than $26.6 Million

S&P 500 vs. Zacks #1 Rank List Hypothetical Return on 10K Investment: Jan 1, 1988 - Jun 3, 2024
$465,265 S&P 500
$26,639,737 Zacks #1
Rank List
The S&P 500 Index is owned and published by McGraw-Hill

Maybe +24.2% per year doesn't sound thrilling, but let's suppose you had invested $10,000 in the S&P 500 in 1988. Rebalancing monthly and not counting fees, you would have more than $460,000 today.

But if you had put that same $10,000 into the Zacks Rank system, it could have compounded to more than $26.6 million dollars.
