MJ Biz Con Part Two with David Kretzmann, Bill Peters, Annie Graf and Nick Opich

Welcome back to the Green Rush!  This week we have Part Two of our special broadcast from the floor of the Marijuana Business Conference in Las Vegas. At the mid-November conference, Lewis and Anne took to Podcaster’s Row to chat with a number of guests to discuss the growth of the conference, the excitement of the industry as a whole and get the low down on what’s coming up next for the burgeoning business of cannabis.

For Part Two, we first have Lewis and Anne’s conversation with David Kretzmann, an Analyst/Investor with The Motley Fool – an investment news site designed to educate, amuse and enrich readers and help them make better financial decisions. As cannabis has grown from being a strictly illegal commodity to the fastest growing industry in the U.S., David has been one of the leading financial analysts looking at the space and helping the Motley Fool community of investors understand whether it makes sense for them to jump into the industry and what companies they should be watching.

In the second half of the podcast, Lewis and Anne sit down with Bill Peters, reporter for Investor’s Business Daily – a financial news site providing ongoing support, research and news to help investors make more informed decisions. Formerly a general business reporter, Bill’s primary focus in the last year has shifted to cannabis due to the growth of the industry, the legalization of recreational cannabis in California and the way the industry has excited investors across North America.

To wrap the episode, Lewis and Anne invite KCSA colleagues Annie Graf and Nick Opich into the booth to talk about what their seeing from the industry and the overall growth of Marijuana Business Conference.

Enjoy!

David started investing in stocks when he was 12 years old and has been a Fool ever since. He is a graduate of Berea College as well as the Motley Fool’s Analyst Development Program, currently serving as an analyst in Rule Breakers and Supernova.

Could Cannabis Be the Next Big Short?

This week on the Green Rush Podcast, Anne, Lewis, and Phil sit down with Danny Moses, Wall Street insider and investor in the cannabis industry. If you don’t know Danny, you should.  He was at the center of the financial meltdown in 2007/08 and his role in the crisis was recaptured in the famous film, “The Big Short”.  As a trader working for Steve Eisman, Danny was a “short” meaning he bet against the housing market and made a ton of money. He’s one of the smartest guys from Wall Street and over the past few years he’s been going “long” on the cannabis sector. Danny speaks to his experience in the 2008 financial crisis, similarities he sees between the financial collapse and the cannabis industry, why he believes investing in cannabis is smart, and the social issues that continue to plague the cannabis industry.

3 Main Takeaways:

  1. There’s great risk and reward in cannabis industry
  2. Do your homework when investing in cannabis  
  3. There are a wide range of health/medicinal uses to cannabis

Danny Moses has extensive experience with financial markets having worked on Wall Street since 1991 and holding a variety of positions including municipal bond analyst, institutional sell-side broker, trader, and hedge fund manager. The book and later movie “The Big Short” features the character of Danny Moses and a few others who were able to successfully navigate the volatility of the financial markets during the formation of the housing bubble in 2004.
