Doubled already. Sell half and free ride?

Edit: Realized I'm looking at the 246.00 option. The 246.50 has quadrupled.

Andrew Left is an interesting character.

He publishes a blog about shorting stocks on his website:

For some reason I got banned after reading his site for a few minutes. I have never seen this type of a message from a website before:

i bought some AMY.V..........its had a little run up to .20 canadien and might pull back to .16.


they are involved with a process to recycle lithium and cobalt out of battery's for cell phones and electric car battery's.

the way i am looking at things, gasoline powered engines will be a thing of the past by 2025 and if this works it will be the first company to be on board with this extraction process that they claim works. now.

I like this thesis.

Cobalt is needed to make Lithium batteries. Electric cars take about 100 pounds of copper. So there is probably an opportunity in copper, too.

I would like to invest in something related to marijuana.

I read an interesting article today that Ray Kroc of McDonald's said they were mainly in the real estate business. 15 cent hamburgers brought in the most money for the franchise owners. The franchisees paid McDonald's rent on the buildings and real estate was where the big money was being made.

So I'm thinking that investing in real estate firms that rent to pot growers could be profitable.

AFCO, FPI, and LAND are all farmland REITS that I have been following. None of them lease to any marijuana operations but they are all triple net (The farmers are responsible for all taxes and maintainence on the land). AFCO and LAND lease land for permanent crops which have a little less commodity volatility than the wheat/soy segment that FPI specializes in.

The theory of owning the land and leasing it to a farmer works regardless of the crop so I wouldn't focus too much on marijuana as the target. The marijuana customer also eats.

I haven't bought any of these though I came close on LAND when they had a secondary offering and the price dropped for a few days. Waited too long and it has drifted back up.

You won't make a killing on these. They aren't FANG. But you won't lose your shirt either. They are bond analogs with some interesting attributes that I like. But higher interest rates will probably cause most REITS to drop in price the same way utilities would get hit in that scenario.

I'm not a commodity guy but ran across this article while looking for something else. Food for thought before you get too heavily invested in a crowded trade. This suggests you may have better entry points a few years out:

Lithium is a commodity. If the price drops due to oversupply, it will impact companies trying to turn a profit recycling it.

Silver has been lagging gold in a big way. everytime silver gets to $17.50 it pulls right back. Silver has always been an action trade. right now, in my opinion, the Silver speculators have been moving over to the crypto-currencies. this is just my guess. so with the crypto's going for the program lately, i think that the action guys may go back to the Silver and push it back up to over $17.50 for the first hurdle. Silver sits right now at $17.18, a break above the resistance could bring you some serious moves if i am guessing this thing right.
