Five years ago, when I first started following publicly-traded cannabis stocks, there was little substance to the small universe of companies that purported to be in or providing goods or services to&a;nbsp;the industry. Fortunately, now there are many legitimate companies, some &l;a href=&q;https://www.newcannabisventures.com/cannabis-company-revenue-ranking/&q; target=&q;_blank&q; rel=&q;noopener noreferrer&q; target=&q;_blank&q;&g;generating substantial revenue&l;/a&g;. Despite this significant progress, there are still hundreds of companies trading as penny stocks on the OTC that have little merit in my view. Today, I want to share my thoughts on just a few of them.

The stock market continued to lose ground on Thursday, with major benchmarks once again posting significant declines. The Dow Jones Industrial Average finished near its lows of the day, falling 546 points despite multiple efforts to cut its losses during the session. Even though most indexes are still up for 2018, investor confidence seems to be eroding badly after nearly a decade of bull market gains. Nevertheless, some good news from a handful of individual stocks let them buck the downtrend and move higher. Barrick Gold (NYSE:ABX), Green Plains (NASDAQ:GPRE), and RH (NYSE:RH) were among the best performers on the day. Here’s why they did so well.

While all producers have paid the price of a grossly oversupplied market in recent years, none has suffered as much as Green Plains (NASDAQ:GPRE). The business is much more dependent on ethanol output and selling prices than peers Archer Daniels Midland or Valero Energy, which generate the majority of their income from agricultural raw materials and petroleum refining, respectively.
