If you have been following the blog over the last few weeks, or if you read the title to the article before clicking, the stock I purchased this week....More>>>

&l;p&g;Canada will soon become one of the few countries to legalize adult-use of marijuana for recreational purposes. Consequently, Canadian cannabis stocks have witnessed a surge in their valuation lately.

Energy Storage Agreements (ESAs) will upend the coal generating business. I have been traditionally skeptical of the concept pushed by greenies that wind and solar will replace coal and nuclear fuel, and that all we need are windmills and solar panels for as far as the eye can see. Their biggest challenge is the intermittent nature of their generating footprint vs. the grid’s base load requirements....More>>>
What happened to Boeing Co. (NYSE: BA) on Friday is like one of those NFL games where one team piles up yardage and time of possession only to lose the game because the other team scored on a last-minute Hail Mary. The U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) voted unanimously that Boeing was not harmed by the sale of 75 Bombardier CS100s to Delta Air Lines in early 2017 and that tariffs amounting....More>>>
