Wednesday’s market sell-off may have gone unnoticed by investors who have opted to invest in (or speculate in) some of the more widely known cannabis companies. Canopy Growth Corp. (NYSE: CGC) trades in the United States, but the Canadian medical cannabis company also trades under the WEED ticker on the Toronto Stock Exchange. The company has become a benchmark for the emerging legalization....More>>>

Monday June 19: Five things the markets are talking about
Last week saw a plethora of bad economic news stateside, starting with continued weakness in inflation, consumer confidence, housing and manufacturing. The Fed followed their script and removed the expected amount of stimulus on the assumption that inflation and the U.S economy will improve.
As expected, the first day of the Farnborough Airshow was a busy one for the two major commercial jet makers. Boeing Co. (NYSE: BA) announced orders for some 59 new passenger jets, while European rival Airbus said it took orders for 100 new planes. Not all these orders are new or firm.

General Motors (NYSE:GM) has gone through a lot over the past 10 years.

Like most investors, Warren Buffett didn’t have a great first quarter. Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK-A) (NYSE:BRK-B) gained less than 1% through the end of March. That was enough to beat the S&P 500 index, but I doubt Buffett broke out his ukelele to strum and celebrate.
