YOLO in Focus

This ETF is active and does not track a benchmark. The AdvisorShares Pure Cannabis ETF seeks long-term capital appreciation by investing in both domestic and foreign cannabis equity securities. It charges 74 bps in fees (see Style Box - All Cap Blend ETFs here).

Why the Move?

Shares of major cannabis stocks rallied on Joe Biden's election win. Biden’s victory could speed up the legalization of marijuana at the federal level, thereby providing a boost to the U.S. cannabis industry. Five states legalized marijuana through ballot measures and this added to the optimism.

More Gains Ahead?
