Cannabis Stocks Back in Stage 2. Big Industry Group Theme for 2021

At the start of each year I like to look at where the initial money is flowing once the institutional traders return from their end of year breaks, and this year I can see a strong group theme developing in the Cannabis stocks once more, with multiple early Stage 2A breakouts and continuation breakouts on strong volume recently from big Stage 1 bases, and multiple other stocks in the group setting up in the later part of Stage 1.
