Top 5 Medical Stocks To Buy For 2019

Over the past 22 years, we’ve witnessed a near-180 in North America when it comes to cannabis. Mexico, which had long held a negative view of marijuana, legalized medical weed in June 2017. To our north, Canada OK’d the use of medicinal marijuana in 2001, and it now stands on the verge of becoming the first developed country in the world to legalize adult-use cannabis. And within the U.S., we’ve gone from zero states having legalized marijuana in any capacity in 1995 to 29 as of today, including nine where recreational weed is legal.

This change in perception is especially remarkable in the United States, where marijuana remains wholly illegal at the federal level, as evidenced by its Schedule I classification by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency. Since 1995, favorability toward the idea of legalizing pot in Gallup’s survey has jumped from 25% to an all-time high of 64% as of October 2017.

    Second, and building on that previous point, what mortgage REITs might lack with a less-than-perfect rising-rate environment, they’ve gained in managerial experience. With the exception of industry juggernaut Annaly Capital Management (NYSE:NLY), virtually no other mortgage REITs had much experience prior to the Great Recession. However, most of these publicly traded mortgage REITs now have a decade or more of experience under their belts. This experience should come in handy as lending rates rise.
