"As the pandemic makes a horrifying comeback across the Sunbelt Bell, we go back to the kind of stocks work during the first big outbreak in March and April for example, the states gradually going back into lockdown the package food place. They're back now. Just today we got from General Mills and iconic household name and a member of the Kramer covid Nineteen Index Company posted great quarter, resounding, top and bottom. Bottom line be twenty percents sales well, but because madman was a bit circumspect about the future who wouldn't be and didn't bring as much to the sales of the sales down to the bottom line. We'll start cutting the just a hair. What was that a mistake? Let's dig deeper with Jeff Harmony. He's the chairman seal general mills who were about the quarter and his company's Prospects Jeff welcome money. Thanks for having me really enjoy being here. I said Jeff Fire Company for. Thirty years I'm going to give I WANNA. Do a do over here I. Think Anybody it gains or hold share in nine out of ten of their products who accelerates organic sales who I think has come through and be able to produce without any supply chain problems is a hero, and the stock is inexpensive so I'm it to you to say tell me that I'm wrong. I'm not going to tell you that you're you're wrong. We a good year going into the fourth quarter, going into the pandemic especially, North America retail business and Blue Buffalo, which are pet food businesses, growing at double digits, and obviously a during the last three months business really accelerated through strong execution, as you say not ten categories of share growth in the US, all of our categories, growing share in Europe six out of seven categories growing share in Brazil, so as a really good quarter built on the back of three good horrors before that. Well Jeff! I know that you had balance-sheet concerns at one point. That you had to address. You're out. You're operating cash flow which I don't think anyone focused on the call was magnificent, and your leverage is so much better than it was a couple years ago. That's the thing I. Think I'm most proud of that. I'm not sure people fully appreciate. We tried to get to a net to ratio of three and a half. Times by the end of this year we got all the way down to three point two times net debts Ebitda which brings us that much closer to get back to our normal capital allocation and our first priority there when we get two to three times net debt, the Dow will be growing dividend again and so it really is a big deal. Yes, our our our earnings. Our cash flow is even better than earnings and we're really proud of that. 'cause I always is the ultimate dividend growth stock and I think it's GonNa. Come back and now do that. Let's talk about something else that. I thought it was magnificent of blue. This was an acquisition that initially be will say we'll. Maybe there's an overpay, but you have thirteen point three percent household penetration. You've got all channels going by candidates. We buy it through Chewy. But this is this is turned into an acquisition that is really taking share from a lot of other companies. It's been a great acquisition for General Mills, and it's been a great acquisition for our shareholders, and all the pet parents in is every blue buffalo everything we thought it would be. We've grown a double digits two years in a row including eighteen percent organic sales growth this year we are growing share in the business and we've got some great innovation lined up for next year, and so people treat their pets like family and we've been feeding food. Food to families, one hundred and fifty years, and now we're just feeding into furry members of family and so blue buffalo is everything. You thought it would be two years ago when we buy it. When we bought the business when people at home, they do two things. They have breakfast at home. They have cereal, Cheerios, or something like it, and it means suddenly that they cook a Betty Crocker and Pillsbury so both breakfast and dinner are growing nicely. You going really well. This year is our third consecutive year of sales growth in in breakfast cereal this last quarter zero grew twenty six percent. And, so we had a good run on cereal, and even a better around this last quarter. As you say, people rediscovered that the kitchen is the heart of the home, and that's good news for Betty Crocker in Pillsbury. We have two of the top five food websites in the US, on traffic on those is up. One hundred percent as people are trying to figure out what. What what to do with these new products, they have in their houses, so it's been a really good run for for baking are meals businesses last word so talk to me about a just in general I mean for instance candidate had been dragged. Don't up some international, because looks like the international is another thing. I think we were getting upset about now. It's pretty good. It is good especially. Our Business in Europe turned around in the fourth quarter. We are the third fastest growing CPG Company and food in Europe. During the quarter I. We grew on our yogurt business. We grew share on our bars. Business Paso haagen-dazs, double digits, and in in Brazil we grew double digits in the last quarter, and so it's been. It's been a really good business. The only parts of our business that struggle in the fourth order or some of our food service business, both here in the US and. China, but even there in the US we took share, and so while we were down twenty eight percent in our food service business, the sector as a whole is down far more than that, so we competed really effectively even there yet all these good and but we gotta go over something else. At the top of your call, you did something that no one else has done. You mentioned the name George Floyd you mentioned to her fluids named twice. You mentioned black lives matter not just that we have to help minorities..

No, the Corona Virus Did Not Sink Sales of Corona Beer
"From wondering I'm David Brown and this business wars daily on this Tuesday march tenth. Wow It's been a long few weeks as anxiety's been mounting over this corona virus no surprise that the viruses hit many businesses especially those with global supply chains in companies that sell rely on travel. But there's one company hit hard because of branding. Yes you guessed it that would be corona the maker of beer and hard seltzer. It's sales slowed tremendously because many Americans. It seems are confused about the association between the beer and the virus. Oh Com on. They are not the last couple of weeks. Misleading story went viral. It implied that Americans are so dumb. That many of us believe the beer can cause the virus that message spread by a certain less than honest public relations firm seemed to indicate that sixteen percent of us are confused about the relationship between corona the beer and corona the disease. That's killing people. It also implied that Krona's beer sales had fallen because of the virus. The story was so convincing that many major news outlets picked it up including CNN. The New York Post and vice among others not surprisingly twitter went Gaga over this story. None of it's true. Let's talk for a minute about the difference between correlation and causation. Shall we correlation means? Two things are happening Ed once but may have little to do with each other causation. Means well okay you get it. This is key to what happened. So a firm called Five W. P. R. published a poll of more than seven hundred Americans. That poll asked questions about the corona virus and about corona the brand one of the findings. According to this firm. Thirty eight percent of those polled said they would not by corona beer under any circumstances now as a writer for the Atlantic noted the PR firm then went on to state without proof. The reason these respondents won't buy corona is because of the virus not so in fact many or even all of those thirty eight percent may not have been corona drinkers to begin with as was reported in the Atlantic. They might not by corona regardless. But that's not how the PR firm chose to sell it in fact that firm trumpeted the so-called finding saying who would want to go into a bar right now in order corona well in in fact corona sales have fallen. That's in part because sales of many beer brands are down in China at a time. When beer sales usually climb we're talking about the lunar brew year a New Year Abn Bev which distributes corona outside of the US forecast day ten percent decline in sales in China because people are staying home. That's according to the fact. Checking website slopes so that particular sales declined does appear to be a corona virus effect. Just not related to the name of corona beer. What got much less play as a statement from Constellation brands which distributes corona inside the US in America Constellation said. Sales grew five percent in the four weeks that ended February sixteenth. That's double the sales trend for the last year. Snoops reported constellation clearly felt it was necessary to correct the wild misconceptions in a press. Release the firm stated that its customers quoting here understand. There's no link between the virus in our business. Exactly giving constellation brands even more headaches. However was the unfortunate coincidence between its long planned on brand marketing campaign for hard seltzer and the growth of corona virus. Constellation is spending forty million dollars on a marketing campaign to launch. Its New Corona Hard Seltzer in North America according to industry publication food

Why Doesn't Alcohol Have Nutrition Labels?

That's P, O, D, five zero Orkan home is where the bugs aren't. Welcome to brain stuff production of iheartradio. Hey, brain stuff. Lauren Vogel, bam here if you feel like you can't even consider consuming a candy bar without being confronted with its chlorine content. You're right. The same thing goes for just about every piece of packaged food you see in stores, plus every bottled canned or carton beverage a nutrition facts label depicts detailed info on the amounts of fat sugar. Sodium and more found inside. But while your favorite breakfast, cereals sodas and sandwich fixings are subject. This type of in-your-face transparency, you may have noticed that booze is typically off the hook residing behind fact labels. So what gives the answer lies in the powers that be while the food and Drug administration or FDA regulates the safety of you guessed it food, including non alcoholic beverages? It doesn't govern the alcohol industry that honor belongs to the alcohol and tobacco tax and trade bureau or TB an agency that doesn't require labeling while beer wine and spirits companies aren't league. Alie mandated to print, the nutritional info on their products. Consumer advocates have been calling for the TB to change that. And it has sort of in twenty thirteen the agency made nutrition labels optional for alcohol, but somehow, experts don't feel the move was bold enough Johns Hopkins public health researcher Sarah Blake told vox in two thousand fifteen many adults take in a tremendous amount of calories from alcohol, and they have no idea. She should know her work revealed that the average American regularly consumes four hundred calories a day from alcohol alone. A pint of PA contains about two hundred fifty calories a glass of red wine has about one hundred twenty five and a shot of liquor has about one hundred. The reasons behind the disparity in label requirements between the FDA and t t b goes back to prohibition when the ban on the production and distribution of alcohol in America came to an end congress passed the alcohol administration act of nineteen thirty five which eventually led to the establishment of the t b but its rules around labeling have historically been a bit. Messy substances. The people might be sensitive to, like, sulfites have to be labelled, but other ingredients, do not wines, contain fourteen percent, alcohol, or more have to display alcohol content while wines from seven to fourteen percent. Don't have to list, alcohol content, if they're considered light or table. Oh and wines with less than seven percent alcohol. Those aren't regulated by the TB at all. Those are under the jurisdiction of the FDA, and so they're required to display nutrition facts. Labels confusing. Isn't it? A few brands corona light, Guinness Heineken, and course, light do put calories and some nutrition information though. Not the ingredients on their bottles, or packaging, but it's typically very small print or hard to find you might even have to look on the bottom of the six pack to find it who looks their Bud Light on the other hand began voluntarily including obvious, leibels listing its beers calories fat carbohydrates and protein per serving, as well as other ingredients in February of two thousand nineteen since then and Heiser Bush's added similar labeling to some of its other Bud Light line beers, including Bud Light lime, Bud Light orange, and Bud Light lemon tea change is brewing though. At least in the beer industry industry leaders, including Anheuser Busch Miller Coors, Heineken USA constellation brand beer, division, North American breweries and craft brew lions which together produce more than eighty one percent of the volume of beer, sold in the United States have agreed to voluntarily displayed nutrition facts by twenty twenty.

Canada, Constellation Brands And San Francisco discussed on CNBC's Fast Money
"Canopy growth. Somebody could turn their phones. Thank you. Dan, one of the hottest spot stocks this year up more than sixty percent just yesterday. Got the approval from shareholders to acquire cannabis company acreage holdings win the US legalizes marijuana. And we are expecting canopy to report earnings at any moment. So let's go to a D ROY in San Francisco with more on what to expect too easy. A lot of anticipation that that's right. Melissa investors will be looking closely a canopies top line growth, but also for any color on its production capacity and its ability to meet demand. The Canadian market has been dealing with shortages and companies have struggled to scale up Cowan's this canopy is the market leader in the country with twenty percent market share. But the Canadian legal market expected to reach just under a billion dollars. This year is still relatively small, for instance, a legal market in California, is expected to reach three billion or just under three billion this year. So investors will also be looking for any numbers on canopies revenues in countries outside Canada by the end of the air. Canada's market will be also expanding to things like edibles and beverages. So we'll be looking for any guidance on how can it be plans to meet that demand and also address some of the regulations, which were just released on things like packaging and dosing of those items? Investors will also be looking to see if canopy will leverage its partnership with constellation brands for products in this category.
Coca Cola, Warren Buffett And Charlie Munger discussed on Brett Winterble
"Weekend in Omaha Nebraska is the annual Berkshire Hathaway shareholders meeting and Charlie Munger and Warren Buffett were making their ways around talk at a variety of folks, Warren Buffett, he's a Jain Norma's democrat. I know I know so Charlie monger, I don't care about that. But I talking about the politics of the business of this. He also loves Coca Cola. He drinks about five cans of coca day, Warren Buffett. All right. His company is the largest shareholder of Coca Cola with a ten percent stake worth nineteen and a half billion dollars. So when he's talking about Coca Cola, and he's making comments about Coca Cola. He's making comments about Coca Cola and the management of Coca Cola is paying close attention because he's a big customer. He's big shareholder. So they asked him FOX businesses Liz, claiming said to Warren Buffett, what do you think about the idea that Coca Cola is thinking about diversifying into cannabis products? Either a CD concoction THC concoctions any of that sort of stuff. What do you think about Coca Cola getting involved in the marijuana business? They said it would be bad news Munger and Buffett said it would be bad news for the brand that the brand has a wholesome image. And that it would be detrimental sheep. She pushed a little further. He he didn't indicate that he would sell Coca Cola. He wouldn't dump his his his stake in Coca Cola. But he did say to Liz claiming I think everybody who knows what Coca Cola is. It has one hundred percent brand recognition around the world and all two hundred countries or whatever it is. Everybody knows what a Coca Cola is what coke is. It would it would be deleterious to that. Now all this goes back to the September report that coke had its eye on entering the cannabis space after constellation brands and Molson Coors announced their own investments in that industry. Then a month later Coca Cola dismissed it. They said they were not in talks or they were thinking about getting in talks with Aurora cannabis to produce a CBD infused beverage executives Coca-Cola said the company does not plan on getting into that space. Coca-cola could be missing out on a huge opportunity, by the way because that market in the US alone is expected to explode from one billion to sixteen billion in the next six years the market for for cannabis. It's already rapidly expanding. So that's an interesting question and an interesting dilemma. Bear in mind. Charlie Munger ninety five years old and Buffet's not that far behind him. These are these are not spring chickens, and they grew up at a time when when the grass was the grass was in what you

With Americans Drinking Less, Booze Makers Seek Alternatives
"Jennifer, I think some Americans might be skeptical about some of the numbers here, but they are showing a decline, especially when it comes to beer one and spirits were picking up for a while. But sales growth there has slowed to. So how serious is the situation in the US for brewers liquor companies? They're definitely taking steps to address this trend. Actually, there's very few trends in these numbers. But overall new data show that US alcohol volumes fell zero point percent last year and that steeper than zero point seven percent. Decline in twenty seventeen and unpacking that a bit beer was the worst hit beer volumes were down one point five percent in two thousand eighteen compared with a one point one percent decline in two thousand seventeen so brewers are taking this very seriously and taking a vase of. Maneuvers as it were. So what's happening here? The Wall Street Journal has been covering shifts in consumer tastes for food and drinks for Weil. What is going on when it comes to alcohol consumption? There are few things going on. I a lot of folks are drinking less, but better that means that they are trading up to maybe a pricier option. Let's say they're drinking a couple of craft beers instead of a six pack of, but there's also a trend away from beer toward one and spirits. And then overall people are drinking less alcohol that means that there is sort of a health and wellness a trend at foot. It also just means that people are especially younger millennials. But I think it actually does play cross several generations. They're looking at what they're putting in their bodies are being more selective about it looking at ingredients. And that means that overall they might be consuming sort of less of a volume and maybe a few. Pricier maybe more natural ingredient sort of focused beverages. Are we seeing the same trends overseas? Or is this more play in the United States? It's definitely happening in other markets. Although in the US, it's perhaps more pronounced the health and wellness trend. We're seeing across the board and the premiums -ation trend. Also in developed markets is quite common. Now, it's been playing for a few years and a lot of alcohol companies with their spirits or beer brewers have been coming out with higher end products. You know, this shift from American loggers toward craft beers. And the same is true. If you look at vodka or tequila or whiskey on and on and on the big companies are positioning their brands and developing new brands to sort of play into where consumers are headed. What else are beer and wine makers doing to stay ahead of the trends? Here will turn it was are they looking at so because in some. Cases, people are just drinking less. There are a number of beer and spirits companies. That are rolling out low end, no alcohol products. You got a bunch of zero point zero beers. That are either available here or will be soon. You've got you know, anti-bush imbed the world's largest brewer saying that their new quote beyond beer. I unit is a big focus of theirs in they're acquiring an energy drink company, and they're bottling ice tea. They're launching a seltzer. You've also got beer companies that are branching way. Beyond beer. They're cooking up coconut water, come boo. Shop much T. So we see a lot of branching out and a lot of experiments in areas where consumers have shown interest in whether it's the health and wellness space just sort of lower alcohol space and also something we've been reporting on a lot late. Brewers seem to be investing more in cannabis infused drinks, partnering up with startups and producers, for example, pets right so cannabis is I think one of the most interesting developments in the beverage industry of late and big beer companies in the US are either thinking about it or talking about it or investing in cannabis the biggest deal so far has been constellation brands, which is company that imports corona and Modell in the US and they invested four billion dollars last year a Canadian cannabis company, and that was followed by a JV announced by most in cores. They're developing cannabis beverages and ABM Bev is now researching cannabis beverages all of these sort of in partnership with different Canadian companies, but the idea is that consumers are going to have new options as these cannabis markets opened up in Canada and potentially in the US and other.

"So those are some of the factors that we look at. And then we also want to I mean, taking a long-term approach we want to be sure that we're finding companies that are positioning themselves to be a relevant player in the long term. So we're not necessarily worried about where the share prices will be in a month or three months or even a year. We're more interested in what what are the odds that this cannabis company will be a relevant in thriving player in the industry three plus years from now so trying. Take that long-term approach is kind of the way that we're playing a different game than a lot of this speculation and short-term is short termism that's dominating category right now. So are there a couple specific company names or stocks that you wanna put out there and for any listeners at wanna maybe consider and start looking into the industry. Sure. So we we've kind of distinguished between within the initial companies that we've recommended to people as by recommendations, we have the pure play. So these are companies that generate the majority of the revenue from cannabis in some shape or form. And then we also have picks and shovels companies and picks and shovels companies. We've identified as companies that have a strong underlying core business that isn't in cannabis, but then the potential opportunity with cannabis is kind of an ad on or cherry on top. But it isn't the main thesis behind buying the company so starting with a pick and shovels company. I think constellation brands is a company at some people be familiar with. Or if people have followed this space at all you might have seen him in the headlines. This is a company behind corona of the beer, and then a variety of other wine and spirits brands that they have in their portfolio. They've been one of the the better performing alcohol beverage companies. Really I in the past several years. Unlike some of the other bigger players last year, they invested a smaller amount into canopy growth, which is one of the larger cannabis producers in Canada, then in August constellation brands re up that investment in a huge way they invested in additional four billion dollars in the canopy growth taking thirty eight percent control of canopy, four of the seven board seats. So essentially canopy growth today is the cannabis offshoot of constellation brands and to to put that number of perspective in the first half of twenty eighteen every single candidates company public and private around the world had raised four point three billion dollars. That's the first half of this year. So in a single day Kennedy growth, essentially, raise the same amount that every other company had raised. So this just puts constellation and canopy growth on a whole other level compared to other companies so from picks and shovels angle. I like constellation brands because this is a company that pays. The dividend that they generate an increasing amount of free cash flows. So it's a healthy business have strong core business, but they're also making a fairly aggressive push in cannabis and they during the announcement of this investment, they they said that they expect the legal cannabis market on a global scale to hit two hundred billion dollars by twenty thirty. So they see this being a big opportunity, and they're making a substantial bet on it. So that that would be the type of company that I start with. It's a business. That's easy understand. You can sorta see where cannabis could complement constellation brands because they have a lot of experience building brands and distribution with a highly regulated product like alcohol beverages, and it makes sense that they could transfer that knowledge over to cannabis in the coming years. And I like the fact that they're taking a long-term approach this. They're not investing cannabis to juice, their share prices or their share price in the short. They're very much thinking of this from a decades, long perspective. And I think that's the right way that as fullish investors. We should be thinking. With pure play companies. These are obviously much riskier companies like like, I said earlier a lot of these companies are burning cash their unprofitable, the valuations are likely going to be very lofty, no matter which way, you slice it. But but one company that I do like that that's a pure play cannabis producer Candida is company called Ken trust..

"For more information. It is a Wednesday. It is a quiet day here in New York. But we are so lucky it is not quiet because we have our own Vince signal Ella who is the global macro strategist for Bloomberg. And I know you wanna go macro. A normally I do too. But today, let's go micro to talk about. Let's talk about pot. Marijuana. Let's address. Because it's just sort of shocking. I wonder if this is sort of the next sort of. Big winner. That is another symbol of a market top to some people. Tell Ray is now bigger than American air Clorox and CBS. What do you make of this is this a symptom of the times or is this real? So you're thinking that this is the end of the pot rally. If you will we'll know that money is pouring into whatever opportunistic moment, a cat and right. And we saw this with bitcoin crypto courage, just thinking it sort of similar to that. Right. And so now, we're seeing the moneyball kind of roll away from bitcoin and crypto assets and go toward marijuana anything having to do with it. I it has half the market cap of constellation brands. What do you make of it? Well, I think it's something that you looked at similar. I think the perfect allergy just made was to bitcoin is bitcoin going to be a phenomenon down the road. It's very possible. I know there are a lot of skeptics, but a lot of people got him way too early and got into the hype and the same thing seems to be happening with him. Marijuana where it probably will be the next thing down the road. I mean, it's one of the. If you look at the drugs in general, one of perhaps, the most used considered the safest considered not to have as many of the side effects as the more serious drugs. Coca Cola's looking into getting involved in the business. That would be a major leap could go and buy, you know, they say things go better with coke. And they're gonna go a little bit better. If you have some. As far as it goes with it. With its products. I guess what? I'm wondering this because I'm trying to figure out are we risk risk off. And we have the kind of having choppy market action, and certainly ten year treasury yields have been pretty range bound and everything's been kind of range bound for a while, even as people promise volatility, and I'm trying to thank, you know, especially if you look at credit markets very much risk on if you look at some of these opportunistic stocks very much risk on what do you make about? I think China's leading the tone clearly setting the tone with risk for this entire week. The the the feeling the word out of the PBOC prior within the last month or so was that if the United States if Trump acted that next round of tariffs on the two hundred billion China's response was going to be to let the currency depreciate even up to an past seven double out. They did not do that their response was measured. Instead of now sending what was rumored yesterday, the lower level delegate, the vice premier showing they're sending Lee her will. That's the talk which is their highest. Level delegate in this situation. And they've stated they won't let the currency depreciate is an incredibly measured receive only then do actually I think I think also I think we're underestimating the Trump administration's desire to get something done before the midterms. I don't think if you look at the two situations. Do we get something done in Canada? We get something done in China. There's way too much optimism. We get it done in Canada. When you talk about getting trade deals trade. I think there's way too much optimism getting something done with Canada. Now that Mexico has been done. And I think there's way too much of a negative thought that we won't get anything done with China. Okay. But just to go to your point about how China's sets the tone. I think you're right on there. And I think it's really interesting that we see some kind of floor that's being set in emerging market currencies. Kind of on exactly what you're saying. Which is trying to saying look we have no interest in having a currency war on top of a trade war right now..

"But what you are seeing is a lot of those companies going public on the Canadian securities exchange. So these companies are going to Canada and even in Canada, they, they can't list on the more reputable Toronto stock exchange. For the same reason. Toronto stock exchange says, no, we won't let companies lists that are selling substance that's still federally prohibited in in your country. But so just for a variety of reasons, you're seeing Canada really become the hotbed both for legal cannabis industry, but then also for any company that's looking to list publicly, they're going to to Canada. So a whole lot of things happening in this industry is just fascinating to follow such a fast paced category right now. So while you were up in Canada, when the news broke about constellation brands and canopy growth on this podcast, one of. The things we talked about when we talked about that topic was the price that they paid. And I'm curious if anyone you talked to said anything along the lines of, hey, good for canopy growth, but holy cow did constellation brands pay a lot for that investment because that's that's what struck me was it wasn't that they did it. It was the price they paid? Yeah, it was a lofty price. I mean, for about four billion US dollars for thirty eight percent of the company. Yeah, it's a lofty valuation. I, I don't think anyone in the industry will admit that everyone right now is so optimistic that they want their company to be invested in it that same level and from constellations perspective. I mean, they really are treating this from a long term view. Like they're saying, we think cannabis globally will be at two hundred billion dollar market by twenty thirty. And part of the reason at constellation has been at the forefront of making investments into this category. Announced their first investment in canopy growth last October. So by far they've been the first mover and now the first mover was such a dramatically large deal. Part of the reason is that they're essentially still a family run company. You have essentially the sands family. So you have a founder run company. They're not as beholden to thinking short term about the risks like, well, it's not legal in the US like what will the federal government investigators or somehow. Getting our way. So I think from that perspective, they see cannabis becoming increasingly relevant cultural force. You're gonna see more and more countries take the step to legalise cannabis. And I also think by making this statement now, if and when the US does decriminalize cannabis on a fair level, all of a sudden can't be growth, has a war chest to go into the US. So I think they're intimidating that within the next couple of years, we will see the US on a federal level decriminalize cannabis. And if and when that happens, you're going to see constellation and canopy just go all out three quick things before we wrap up. I is that we are hiring here, the motley fool, and we, we actually have a lot of jobs posted right now and more coming next week..

"Is more and more opportunities come into the fray that increases that supply. Then all of a sudden yet more options as far as were to put your investment dollars. And I think that's the biggest problem right now is that shirt till Ray has a lot of promise, but there are a lot of red flags there. David mentioned a number of more any, so you have to consider that and think, well, perhaps it's a decent opportunity, but perhaps the price right now doesn't really make sense at all and in it really doesn't, like I mean, if you invest in this company at today's price, you're going to lose money. I, I would be willing to bet my life on that. And I know that's a hold statement, but it's insane like it doesn't make any money like it's not profitable in even to get there like it's still just based on a commodity. So this is a very, very early early space, give it some time, learn about it way for some of those better opportunities to come online and figure out how they're going to monetize this because ultimately it still is just a commodity inundate. It's not about growing it. It's more about what you do with it from there. David mentioned billing. Those break. Building that awareness in the space. I think that's going to be really important way to to find those opportunities and just take some time to get there. So I'm going to count you as skeptical, Jason Moser's at fair skeptical on the company, but but very bullish on the market opportunity in general. Well, yeah, ri- right now, all these cannabis companies for the most part have very limited or even non-existent track record. So you only have maybe at most a few years of revenue unusually that's still very minimal. But going forward, I think what is kind of supporting these lofty valuations today is the anticipation of more deals similar to the constellation canopy deal. If a company came along and invested two billion dollars in until Ray or any huge amount, you're gonna see that that excitement and that buzz. Because because. Gotta gotta use these while we can because I mean you already have constellation brands making those investments Molson, Coors Canada. They announced a joint venture and no pun intended there with another Canadian producer last month. But then you think about pharmaceutical companies, tobacco other alcohol companies like Diaw GIO, which are rumored to be meeting with these Canadian producers. There's so much based on future hype and expectations some of it legitimate. But in the meantime, you have really every cannabis company riding the wave, whether it's legitimate or not. So if you're an investor, what is the best way to play this space? If Jason is right about Tillery do do you take stock like most Senator? Do you take stock that's like one step removed, or do you get a basket of the cannabis producers or what's the best way for investors to approach this? What we what we've been doing in marijuana Mavericks, which is a service we launched in June in Canada. We, we took the basket approach so we tried to, we basically took a ten different companies, including three picks and shovels companies. Now I'll just say that constellation brands was one of them. So we're looking at the producers, some US operators that are public on the Canadian exchanges trying to find companies. That granted their valuations still look lofty, but they're doing something to differentiate themselves focus on building brands or building distribution retail, something like that. And starting with a small position across all ten of those companies, then we're just looking to start small, follow those companies over time, learn about those companies in the industry over time. Look to add to the companies that do end up gaining some meaningful, tangible traction and add to those winners over time. So we're, we've recommended to our members like anything you invest in this cannabis basket should probably be a smaller percentage of your own portfolio. I personally invested my own money in those ten recommendations. And I started with about five percent of my total portfolio. So if those stocks dropped fifty percent, that would sting, but it wouldn't damage my overall returns too much. So I think it's taking that approach where you're diversify across some promising companies starting small, I think that's a good way to go basket approach. I've heard about somewhere. I know you didn't trademark that case, so it's. That's true. Okay, guys, we'll before we get to our last story..

As a constellation brands is down fourteen, dollars on it but who, knows you, know if they can make big bucks off of it you know God bless them and what. We won't know for a while on something like. That so this is because beer sales. Are down just not what they used to be yeah not even. We, used to have, very very strong bear sales, it. Is now flat to down in most quarters? And they know they gotta look elsewhere, it's kind of like Coca Cola in years, past once they own the world they? Had, to look at other things so they. Got, into water vitamin drinks and all kinds. Of other things and now you sing with the beer companies also now Greg Gary Canada is set. To begin legal marijuana, sales is the US. Going to lag behind if, Canada takes this jump well. The US is lagging behind Canada but I suspect and this is just my guess that eventually will be all legal here in the next decade I think Momentum's going, you know I'll leave my personal opinion out of it but I think, that's where the? Momentum is meant them's going and it's all about the dollar, and it's, all about the taxes that are not being collected on the illegal marijuana business government. Wants to get involved in it that's why they're also legalizing sports gambling here in. The, US so. Again follow the money and, that's where. You usually.

A, long term deal it's something that's, not gonna happen today while the deals are being cut now I think he got a while before you start. To see Product and four, billion dollar, investment I it's it's quite a gamble they, must feel pretty confident this is gonna work out I would, I would suggest four billion dollars be a pretty good number it's ten percent of their market cap I believe constellation brands market cap is about forty billion so. Yeah they're making quite the interesting bet and if it doesn't. Pan out, I gather the, CEO is going to be by by but you know.
