4/20 Is Here: These Are The 15 Most Traded Weed Stocks

Unfortunately, until marijuana is legalized in the United States on a federal level, the vast majority of marijuana stocks will likely continue to trade over-the-counter and continue to be horrible long-term investments. Aside from GW Pharmaceuticals PLC- ADR (NASDAQ: GWPH), which trades on the NASDAQ, no other weed stocks trade on major U.S. exchanges.

Trading on the OTC market means that many of these stocks have relatively light regulatory oversight and little or no institutional backing. For now, these stocks have been serving mostly as day trading instruments.

Short sellers have been particularly profitable. All 15 of Benzinga’s “15 Marijuana Stocks To Watch In 2015” finished the year down at least 30 percent. If you take GW out of the mix, 12 of the remaining 14 stocks were down at least 72 percent.

Until the marijuana industry becomes more mainstream, decent long-term investments will be hard to come by. But if you’re looking to trade weed stocks in the meantime, at least you can avoid the most illiquid stocks.

StockStat has a full list of marijuana stocks that you can sort by trading volume. However, it’s important to remember that 2 million in trading volume may seem impressive, but for a stock that trades at $0.0001 per share, it only amounts to $2,000 in liquidity.
