    3 Marijuana Stocks With Budding Trade Opportunities

    If you're asking the question, "what is Wall Street smoking these days?", you're not alone. But if it's green you're after, look no further than the price charts of this trio of marijuana stocks. Let me explain.With a gravity-defying broader market now approaching all-time-highs off late December's almost ubiquitous corrective bottom, it's enough to give pause to even the most ardent and die-hard bullish investors. Then there are marijuana stocks.The budding field of marijuana and cannabis are of course poised for huge secular growth. Surging demand for both medicinal and recreational products amid increased legalization -- plus in-tow social acceptance and more cleaver and easy ways to enjoy those substances that would leave Cheech and Chong and Jeff Spicoli scratching their heads-- are a big business opportunity to say the least.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 5 Data Center Buys That Deliver Sizable Income Still, as with any new trend which has caught a nice buzz from Wall Street's sell-side promoting dreamy and easy-going path to profits, the reality is there will be very volatile winners and losers in cannabis stocks. Bearing that in mind, let's separate the chaff from the wheat or in this case, the bull from the bear and explore three marijuana stocks. Buy 1: ACB Stock Click to EnlargeMy first of two marijuana stock buys are shares of Aurora Cannabis (NYSE:ACB). ACB stock is on InvestorPlace's Josh Enomoto's short list of cannabis buy recommendations due to the company's smart-looking acquisition strategy that's helping leverage its position within the medicinal side of the business.On the price chart I'm inclined to digress with Josh regarding an inevitable correction in ACB stock after rallying about 70% on the year. Unlike a marijuana stock like Cronos (NASDAQ:CRON) or Canopy Growth (NYSE:CGC) which have seen big gains in 2019; ACB stock's big picture shows a name that's done a good deal more work consolidating its gains in a very large base.As we can see on the weekly view of Aurora Cannabis, shares are actually trading below where they were kicking off 2018. That's interesting, but not necessarily bullish. What's making the case for seeing higher prices in ACB stock are back-to-back corrections which have formed a slightly-irregular "W" or high-level double-bottom pattern.With this marijuana stock now consolidating quietly in a small three-week long handle pattern wedged in-between the 50% and 62% retracement levels, it's time to consider going long ACB stock.My recommendation is to buy shares above $9.48 as ACB stock takes out the high of the formation's weekly doji from two weeks ago.I expect an upside resolution out of the handle will lead to a quick challenge of last fall's all-time-high of $12.53. But to avoid any potential, "what was I smoking" situations, using a stop loss beneath the doji low makes good sense from both a money management and technical perspective. Stock to Buy 2: SMG Stock Click to EnlargeScotts Miracle-Gro (NYSE:SMG) is an old-school, household name best known for its lawn and gardening products. But in today's budding grass market, Scotts is also the industry's largest hydroponics supplier and my second buy recommendation.Scotts was actually given the green thumbs-up of approval by this strategist about three weeks ago. The cannabis stock's pick-and-shovels position for capitalizing on industry growth, fundamentals that don't require smoking any product to appreciate their value, as well as a nicely-positioned SMG stock chart were 'nearly too much to resist.'Fortunately, an above-the-market entry never triggered immediately in front of a fairly significant single session smoking of nearly 6% with no news to account for the bullish buzz-killer. But shares of this cannabis stock did recover nicely off 38% support established over 2018's large correction.Now with SMG stock challenging the 50% line once more, I'm seeing this glass as only half full on the price chart. The technical outlook is Scotts Miracle-Gro shares are in position to break out to new highs for 2019 and eventually challenge the all-time-highs set in January 2018. * The Price of Spotify Stock Doesn't Reflect SPOT's Risks The recommendation for going long this marijuana name is to be ready to purchase shares once again above $83.23. I'd suggest an initial blended stop-loss below $79.75 to keep exposure minimized off and on the price chart. Stock to Sell: CGC Stock Click to EnlargeI'm reminded of the saying, "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Fool me three times, shame on both of us" when looking at the price chart of CGC. And there's good reason for looking at this marijuana stock a bit differently than in days past.In January shares of the Canadian-based marijuana outfit failed to break out successfully from a handle consolidation. Then to make matters worse, CGC stock tried to rally out of larger triangle pattern only to fail yet again. Both occasions got the better of my enthusiasm for this marijuana stock.Should I have seen it coming? Maybe. More importantly, it's time to respect this marijuana stock's bearish offenses have occurred despite enviable supports like a strategic partnership with beverage giant Constellation Brands (NYSE:STZ) and the type of growth that should make bulls salivate.As mentioned, the marijuana industry is going to have losers and winners. And with one-time market cap leader Tilray (NASDAQ:TLRY) already looking like a technical casualty, that reality is a wake-up call. It's suggesting CGC, notwithstanding its good looks off the chart, could be another high-profile victim.My recommendation is short this marijuana stock below $42 as shares are breaking beneath flag support. I'd give this position some room with an initial stop-loss above $46.50. That represents a recovery back above the 62% level and through the apex of the triangle.On the downside, given the failures CGC stock could be on its way towards forming a large double-bottom base that could challenge the December low near $25. And if history does repeat or simply rhymes, last fall's triangle is a reminder of what a tasty edible for bears can look like.Disclosure: Investment accounts under Christopher Tyler's management do not currently own positions in any securities mentioned in this article.

    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.
