In this exclusive Marketfy webinar, Alan hosts special guests Jamen Shively (Founder, Diego Pellicer) and John Davis (policy expert).

Watch as Alan interviews these two cannabis industry leaders and learn about the recent history of cannabis regulations and why Davis believes that the recent approvals by voters in Colorado and Washington will likely be followed by a significant number of states legalizing recreational cannabis in 2016. After hearing John's perspective, investors will have a much better gauge of the future pace of legalization. Additionally, Jamen unveils a major initiative that he believes could further accelerate the fall of "Big Prohibition."

Alan Brochstein

I have worked in the investment industry since 1986 and earned the CFA charter in 1997. I worked for Kidder, Peabody in bonds from 1986-1992 and then First Boston's investment management subsidiary from 1992-1994, both in NYC. I then joined Criterion Investment Management (later acquired by Nicholas Applegate and then West LB) as a portfolio manager helping to manage $10 billion in fixed-income investments. In 2000, I made the move to stocks, joining a small firm in Houston as an analyst and portfolio manager. I left in 2006 and formed my own business, AB Analytical Services.

From 2007 until March, 2014, when I made the decision to devote my time exclusively to the cannabis sector, I worked as a research consultant to several investment advisors. Additionally, I offered a model portfolio service to individual investors from 2008 (, adding a private blog in 2011. In 2009, I began working with an independent research firm that focuses on evaluating the management teams of publicly-traded companies. In 2013, I came to the Marketfy platform and launched The Analytical Trader, with the goal of providing swing-trading ideas that would offer 4:1 reward-to-risk over a two-week time-frame. Later in the year, sensing an unmet need in the market for objective information on cannabis-related stocks, I launched 420 Investor as the go-to place to help investors capitalize on the "Green Rush". Finally, I have been one of the most successful bloggers at Seeking Alpha since early 2007. You can access my 600+ articles at

I am very dedicated to the idea that people can manage their own money and get market-beating performance at a reasonable all-in cost, avoiding costly middlemen who tend to deliver mediocre performance, at best. My goal is to help you by providing ideas that are based on sound processes and decades of experience, letting you make the ultimate judgment regarding the commitment of capital. I enjoy interacting with subscribers and look forward to working with you.
