    Much of the focus of cannabis investors has been centered on Canada and California. This makes sense given that they are the two largest recreational (or soon to be) cannabis markets in the world. However, one publicly traded company with US-centric cannabis operations has taken a different approach. iAnthus Capital is listed in Canada on the CSE (OTCQB:ITHUF), but is headquartered in New York and incorporated in Delaware. Unlike other Canadian-listed cannabis companies, most of which are aiming to get in on the highly competitive green-rush in California and Canada, iAnthus has set its sights on becoming the dominant player on the U.S. East Coast.

Best Blue Chip Stocks To Watch Right Now

Coca-Cola Co. (NYSE: KO) is scheduled to release its first-quarter earnings report before the markets open on Tuesday. The consensus forecast calls for $0.46 in earnings per share (EPS) on $7.31 billion in revenue. The same period of last year reportedly had $0.43 in EPS on $9.13 billion in revenue.

This company has paid dividends for more years than most investors can count, and the beverage giants dividend hike to $0.39 from $0.37 per quarter in February 2018 marked the 56th consecutive annual dividend increase. At the current share price, Coca-Colas stock has unfortunately been stuck in a long-term trading range with limited gains.

Coca-Cola had been considered down and out and dead money for so long that no one seemed to ever want to give its shares much recognition. It is far from a major growth stock in most investors minds, but its defensive stock characteristics make it a core holding for many blue chip investors.

After Coca-Colas most recent positive earnings report, it looks like the stock is finally starting to command more respect from Wall Street analysts. And Warren Buffett also has maintained his strong stake in Coca-Cola after all these years. Coca-Cola was a disappointment in performance in the sell-off after considering it was named among 15 defensive stocks that should survive just fine over time.

Hot Clean Energy Stocks To Invest In Right Now

To get rich, you have to be making money while you’re asleep.– David Bailey

Investors in stocks should absolutely love this quote, because stocks can make you filthy rich, provided you can find ones that have stood the tests of time and can continue to do so, without your having to constantly check on them. It could be a company’s dominance and moat(s) in a growing industry, or its focus on the next megatrend — if it can capitalize on the opportunities, you should be able to earn solid returns.

Right now, I believe Mastercard (NYSE:MA), Brookfield Renewable Partners(NYSE:BEP), and XPO Logistics(NYSE:XPO) fall right into place, because each stock has been a multibagger and has strong tailwinds behind it.

Brookfield Renewable Partners: A bet on the clean energy megatrend

Clean energy is one big trend that’s gradually taking shape, and companies that have already dived into alternative sources of energy should be major beneficiaries. Brookfield Renewable Partners is a fine example.
