    Profit from Cannabis with Canopy Growth and Scotts Miracle-Gro

    Do you want to grow your trading account? Then it may be high time to look at cannabis leaders Canopy Growth Corp (NYSE:CGC) and Scotts Miracle-Gro (NYSE:SMG). Across "all lines" of business, a strong blend of growth opportunity is happening off and on the price charts of CGC stock and SMG stock, and these are worth putting on the radar for purchase. Let me explain.Source: Shutterstock They're not entirely two peas in a pod. Nevertheless, both Canopy Growth and Scotts are in the booming cannabis sector, or what used to be referred to as the business of grass back when VW buses and Cheech & Chong ruled the day. Did I just date myself?More important, Canopy Growth and Scotts are bonafide leaders within their area of expertise.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsAnd right now CGC stock and SMG stock are ripe for buying as those bottom, top and squiggly price lines are offering a nice blend of the right stuff off and on the price chart for investors to grow big profits in today's market. Cannabis Buy No. 1: CGC Stock Off the price chart, CGC stock is one of the marijuana space's undisputed leaders with its roots firmly planted in the medicinal side, but now also smartly growing its recreational-based business. Not unlike with other early stage industries such as the now-ubiquitous streaming video market such as market leader Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX), quarterly corporate confessionals have been a mixed blend for Canopy Growth. Overall, though, the fundamental picture looks strong for CGC stock. * Top 7 Service Sector Stocks That Will Pay You to Own Them Most recently, February's earnings report delivered a Street-topping and eye-popping profit of 22 cents compared to forecasts calling for a loss of 17 cents. Those results are a manufactured blend of accounting allowances as CGC grows its business. As much, an eyebrow or two might be raised. Still, for investors familiar with buying growth stocks, budding sales are a reality and there's no denying Canopy's bountiful year-over-year revenue gain of 282%.There's also CGC's relationship with beverage giant Constellation Brands (NYSE:STZ). The strategic alliance puts Canopy at a sizable advantage, with working capital to grow its business, as well as distribution and marketing expertise.On the price chart, conditions for CGC stock is ripe for growing the color of money in investors' trading accounts. Taking a look at the annotated daily chart of Canopy Growth, what had been a forecasted handle consolidation by this strategist back in the second half of February has morphed into a larger symmetrical triangle pattern.Further supporting the price consolidation's bullish tendencies, CGC's triangle has successfully tested the 50% retracement level a couple times and is centered on either side of the 62% level. All told, a breakout through $48 and slightly above the recent pivot high, as well as angular resistance, looks like an attractive entry point to go long CGC stock.I would add the caveat that Canopy Growth has made a habit of forcing the question "what was I smoking?" from both bulls and bears, with a decent history of technical failures. That being said, to keep any positions from going up in smoke, I'd recommend a homegrown blend of the technical and the prudent, and use an initial stop-loss below $44.40. Cannabis Buy No. 2: SMG Stock SMG stock is our second buy recommendation inside field of cannabis. The company has been around forever and is a household name best known for its fertilizer products for growing one's garden or lawn. But in today's new grass market, Scotts is a major player in the field and the industry's largest hydroponics supplier.Combine SMG's solid "picks-and-shovels" positioning with the cannabis arena's penchant for outsized growth potential and old-school fundamentals like price-to-sales of 1.67 or a forward P/E of 17.6x which don't require an accounting degree and a price chart that's planting the seeds for a breakout -- and bulls have every reason to put Scotts on their radar.Taking a look at the weekly chart of SMG stock, shares have been quietly consolidating at the 50% retracement level for the past few weeks. The price action follows a two-month long rally out of a bear market and might beg the question whether, technically speaking, the glass is half-full or half-empty?With shares also comfortably above the 200-day simple moving average and stochastics having signaled and curling higher out of oversold territory on the daily chart (not shown); you don't have to be smoking anything to see higher prices ahead. And for like-minded investors looking to cash in on today's narrative, buying SMG stock on a breakout above $83.23 with an initial stop-loss beneath the pattern low of $79.94 is a smart way not to get smoked either.Investment accounts under Christopher Tyler's management do not currently own positions in any securities mentioned in this article.

    The 2 Best Alternative Marijuana Stocks to Buy Now

    When I urged folks to consider marijuana stocks in 2014, I got laughed at on TV as being "toked up."Source: Shutterstock But every objection I hear -- every hurdle to full, U.S. legalization -- is just more proof that we're still in the very early innings.Marijuana is a key, long-term investment trend. I can't pound the table often enough on this.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsAs more states legalize recreational marijuana, it'll be right up there with other "sin industries." For example, wine alone is a $60 billion industry in the United States. Cigarettes are $77 billion. Beer is $110 billion.So when Cowen & Co. projects U.S. marijuana sales at $75 billion by 2030 -- I say that's too low. Beer is already losing ground to marijuana in terms of sales growth. As pot stocks grab pieces of each competitor's pie, I could easily see marijuana surpassing other sin industries.That's even before you consider medical researchers are studying treatments with cannabinoids -- not the ones that get you high -- for everything from cancer to multiple sclerosis, mental health and seizures.But aside from major illness, over-the-counter products may soon be all over store shelves. The groundwork is there, with hemp production being legalized in the recent U.S. Farm Bill. And cannabidiol (CBD) supplements having been around since 2017. * 7 Stocks Under $10 You Shouldn't Buy The idea is to use cannabis' anti-inflammatory quality to ease joint pain, headaches and the like. We've even got Melissa McCarthy rubbing CBD oil on her foot before she walks the red carpet at the Oscars.Now, I mentioned the hurdles many marijuana stocks currently face. As investors, we've got to consider that, without federal legalization, the NYSE and Nasdaq won't list marijuana stocks that do business in the United States. (Hence the popularity of Canadian pot stocks … several of which do list on U.S. exchanges, in addition to the Toronto exchange.) The Two Best Alternative Marijuana StocksBut if you're just looking for big, established, American investments, then there are a few secondary plays on marijuana to consider.And before you let the word "secondary" get to you, realize that these are actually some of the best ways to play the long-term investment trend in marijuana. Specifically, this alternative approach to pot is a "picks and shovels" investment strategy.If we go back a couple of hundred years to the California gold rush of 1849, it was -- literally -- the sellers of the picks and shovels that got rich.We saw it ourselves, again, in the shale oil boom of the early 21st century. Besides the skyrocketing real estate prices in North and South Dakota, we saw energy equipment makers soar in value.That same principle can be applied to marijuana. Secondary companies will never touch the plant … but they will still benefit from the growing industry.This brings us to Scotts Miracle-Gro (NYSE:SMG), which is one of the best alternative marijuana stocks to invest in today.It's a $4.5 billion stock, and most people know the namesake Miracle-Gro product. You might be sprinkling it on your lawn, but SMG also offers products for pest and disease control, seeding and hydroponics.So, it has become a major supplier to the booming marijuana industry, which relies on its products to boost cultivation output.SMG stock had a rough 2018. Its cannabis-focused subsidiary, Hawthorne, was yet to be profitable and the long winter kept consumer gardening products from making up for it.But that all changed in December, when the U.S. Farm Bill passed, and hemp production was legalized.The company started 2019 strong, thanks largely to the cannabis business. Sales in the consumer lawn and garden segment were up 9% in SMG's first quarter -- but Hawthorne's were up 84%. And share prices have promptly rallied 33% year-to-date.SMG stock should see continued upside with the strong performance of the entire marijuana industry. * 7 Chinese Stocks to Buy for the 2019 Rebound The second alternative pot stock to consider is Innovative Industrial Properties (NYSE:IIPR). IIPR is a real estate investment trust (REIT) that owns properties where California state-licensed operators grow marijuana for medical use.In 2016, IIPR became the first marijuana stock to ever list on a major U.S. stock exchange. As a REIT, this company does not touch the plant, so it can list on the Nasdaq.The company is still small: IIPR stock has a $750 million market cap. But the company has been growing at a high pace -- analysts are looking for 109% sales growth in its mid-March earnings report -- and the stock has done even better.IIPR stock is up 211% over the past year, and it pays a dividend of 1.8%. At Matt McCall's Investment Opportunities, we're up over 130% since we added the stock to our portfolio in August. And when you consider that it's a business that's so essential to a booming industry -- and the company pays a decent dividend -- the best could be yet to come.Matthew McCall is the founder and president of Penn Financial Group, an investment advisory firm, as well as the editor of Investment Opportunities and Early Stage Investor.
