Matt Markiewicz, Managing Director of The Cannabis ETF, the first passively managed pure-play ETF solution for investing in cannabis is this week’s guest on The Green Rush.
Launched by Matt earlier in 2019, The Cannabis ETF (NYSE: THCX) focuses only on companies in the legal marijuana, CBD and hemp industries. The fund is the first cannabis ETF which does not rely on tobacco stocks and differentiates itself from existing cannabis ETFs in the space by rebalancing on a monthly basis, making THCX the MOST market-sensitive / reactive cannabis ETF without the unpredictability of active management.
With cannabis earnings season upon us, we sat down with Matt to get his take on all things capital markets including his reactions post-earnings on major players like Tilray, Acreage Holdings and Canopy Growth, his process for analyzing cannabis stocks and whether he thinks investors should fear a cannabis “bubble”.
Don’t sit back, lean forward and enjoy!
