@theMarket: Cross Currents Confuse Investors
By Bill Schmick,
12:42PM / Saturday, March 27, 2021

That it is not should tell you something about the indecision plaguing investors.   When good news fails to impress, it usually means stocks (or at least some stocks) are headed lower. That should come as little surprise to readers. I advised investors to raise cash last month in preparation for what I see as a buying opportunity this month. The challenge — when do you put that cash back to work?   No one can call a bottom in stocks, so last week, I did advise

12:39PM / Friday, March 26, 2021
Last week, a bipartisan slate of U.S. Senate co-sponsors introduced the Secure and Fair Enforcement Banking Act (the SAFE Act) that would allow the cannabis industry to tap the federal banking system.

During that time, the legalization of marijuana has moved from a pie-in-the-sky hope of a few legislators to something
