Legal Pot Is Making This Industry Paranoid about Lost Profits

Posted by Bill Hall - Money and Markets

In my most recent Money and Markets articles, I’ve put you on the inside track about a rapidly growing, yet mostly still under-the-radar, industry. One that the world’s super-rich are quietly funding with their own money, in pursuit of potentially eye-popping investment returns.

I then told you that industry was the legal cannabis business.

What’s more, I reported that, according to reputable market research, the legal marijuana industry in the U.S. was a $3.4 billion business in 2015. In 2016, this market doubled to $7.1 billion. 

Now, two major studies show that legal marijuana sales will top $40 billion in the U.S. over the next five years. That number could surge to $50 billion over the next decade … or sooner.

Marijuana is legal in more than half of the states in the U.S., for medicinal and even recreational use. With marijuana going mainstream, some of corporate America’s most-profitable and high-profile industries are recognizing the threat marijuana poses to their profits. 

And they are starting to fight back in a big way …


Last week, you learned that the marijuana industry’s biggest enemy is not the Trump administration or U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions. 

Rather, it’s the Big Pharma companies like Teva Pharmaceuticals (TEVA)Pfizer (PFE)Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) and Allergan (AGN). Companies with big stakes in the pain-treatment game.

But the legal-pot business faces another formidable foe.

Yes, traumatic market events (falling rocks) occur, even though markets are “managed,” statistics are manipulated, and politicians pretend to care about something besides their next election.

From John P. Hussman, Ph.D. Fair Value and Bubbles: 2017 Edition

“Unfortunately, investors seem to have concluded that central bank easing is omnipotent, despite the fact that the Fed eased persistently and aggressively, to no effect, through the entire course of 2000-2002 and 2007-2009 market collapses.”

Pop Goes The Housing Boom... In Canada

Posted by Robert Zurrer

on Friday, 16 June 2017 06:56


China's new controls seek to slow down capital flight.

Canada's housing boom is vulnerable.

The Canadian dollar's rally is overdone.

We're headed for another housing bust. This time in Canada. And the key is China.

It's no secret that Chinese investors, seeking asylum from the slow-motion credit bust underway there, have been dumping tons of cash into Canadian real estate.

But it looks like a number of events are coming together at the same time to blow up that market before the end of 2017.

Gold-Silver Ratio: Debunking The Myth

Posted by Kelsey Williams - Kelsey's Gold Facts

on Friday, 16 June 2017 06:19

A 16-to-1 gold to silver ratio has been the Holy Grail of some silver investors since the mid-sixties.

Unfortunately, fifty years later, it is a quest that continues unabated without success.

In fact, there is evidence that contradicts and widens the chasm that separates wishful thinking from reality.

In the Mint Act of 1792, the U.S. government arbitrarily chose a 16 to 1 ratio of gold prices to silver prices. The actual prices were set at $20.67 per ounce for gold; and $1.29 per ounce for silver.

Prior to 1792 the U.S. did not strike its own coinage. That changed with the establishment of the Philadelphia Mint, which was also authorized by the Mint Act of 1792.

The official price of silver and the market value of silver remained relatively close until the late 1800s.

In 1859, prospectors discovered the Comstock Lode in Virginia City, Nevada. It was the largest silver vein in the world.

Combined with silver already in circulation, this additional supply “flooded the market” and forced the value of silver well below its official price of $1.29 per ounce. This is another classic, historical example of inflation in a pure sense – a devaluation of the money supply. The silver in a silver dollar was now worth much less than the official price of $1.29 per ounce. (Also see: Mansa Musa, Gold, And Inflation)

Congress responded promptly by passing the Coinage Act of 1873, ceasing all production of silver coinage in the U.S. Five years later it reversed itself by passing the Bland-Allison Act which restored silver as legal tender and required the U.S. Treasury to buy large quantities of it. Silver producers were awash with the metal and it was hoped that this new agreement would create more jobs within the mining industry.

A series of other legislative efforts either repealed earlier bills, and/or furthered the requirements of the U.S. Treasury to purchase silver to support the market or to use in the production of silver coinage.

For the next seventy years, the U.S. government ramped up its efforts to control the price of silver. It offered to buy silver at artificially high prices which in turn over-stimulated production of the white metal. This was pleasing to voters in silver mining states. But in the process, the U.S. government acquired a stockpile of over two billion ounces of unneeded silver.

All the while, the market price for silver continued to decline. In 1887, the average annual price of silver dropped below $1.00 and by 1932, at the depths of the Depression, reached a low of $.25 per ounce.
