HMMJ – An Essential Investment Too?

U.S. marijuana producers have now confirmed that marijuana dispensaries are an essential service across many states in order to serve medical patients. Canadian LPs are also still able to sell their products with the government cannabis sites still operating at a minimum.

While many other businesses have had to shutter their stores for the foreseeable future, cannabis companies receive the much-needed nod to continue operations. While this could change any day, it’s a boon to most of the cash-strapped producers.

JNUG – Leveraged Gold Exposure

Direxion Junior Gold Miners 3X (NYSEArca: JNUG) is a leveraged ETF that provides you with substantial, but risky gold exposure. In a rising gold price environment, this would be a potential multi-bagger, however given the recent market volatility, this should be traded with extreme caution.

SONA – COVID-19 Immune?

Sona Nanotech [stock_market_widget type="inline" template="generic" color="default" assets="SONA.CN" markup="(CSE: {symbol} {currency_symbol}{price} ({change_pct}))" api="yf"] designs and manufactures diagnostic tests for medical applications. Last week they announced they achieved a significant milestone for the development of a COVID-19 field test that can produce results in minutes.

While it’s unclear how many hurdles remain, this sort of development would undoubtedly be a game-changer for the company if realized. At the very least, this could be an interesting stock to trade.

USD/CAD – Overbought?

After recent weeks of USD strength, the USD/CAD has entered overbought territory. While it’s unclear how this unknown macro-environment might affect the ratio, historically we are due for a pullback.
