Many saw investing in U.S. cannabis stocks as one of the ultimate blue wave trades for the 2020 election. Now it looks like it could just be one of the ultimate trades of 2020 – regardless of election outcomes. Ballot initiatives favoring the legalization of recreational cannabis or legalization of cannabis use for medical purposes were a clear bipartisan winner in 2020, passing in 5 U.S. states including traditionally conservative states like South Dakota and Mississippi. If you combine that political tailwind with the incredible revenue growth being shown by multi-state operators (MSOs), the bargain prices you can pick up those stocks for relative to their counterparts in similar growth sectors, and the tasty technical set ups coming to fruition, it looks like all the dominos are starting to line up for Todd Harrison and CB1 Capital Management. In this interview with Tony Greer, founder of TG Macro, Harrison outlines his bullish case for the sector, lists his favorite names in the space, and discusses other tangential opportunities and diversification options like ETFs. Filmed on November 5, 2020. Key Learnings: U.S. cannabis multi-state operators (MSOs) are growing fast, trading cheap relative to that growth. Combine that with bullish technicals and clear political tailwinds, MSOs could be the ultimate way to get long equities without picking a side in the growth vs value debate. Todd Harrison lists a handful of his favorite individual names as well as an ETF he advises that contains many of these MSOs.

Howard Klein: Return of The Lithium Bull
Howard Klein, founder and partner at RK Equity, joins Real Vision managing editor Ed Harrison to provide a strategic update on the battery market and specific lithium stocks such as Albemarle ($ABL), Livent ($LTHM), and Piedmont Lithium ($PLL). Key learnings: Lithium miners offer exposure to the electric vehicle sector but at tremendous discounts to EV manufacturers such as Tesla. Klein is bullish on mined commodities in general, but the inherent inelasticity of lithium makes it especially attractive. Over 80% of the world’s Lithium supply comes from China, and COVID-19 has brought the issue of supply chain resilience to the fore. Additionally, Klein discusses how lithium hydroxide is a faster-growing market than that for Lithium carbonate. Filmed on November 30, 2020.

Four Fiscal Cliffs Between Now and the Inauguration
Real Vision managing editor Ed Harrison joins editor Max Wiethe to discuss the potentially negative jobs data that Ed is watching out for later this week. Harrison also highlights the four fiscal cliffs between now and the inauguration that could potentially cause permanent economic damage and undermine the optimism surrounding the vaccine rotation trade. They also discuss the importance of perceived duration in how certain assets react to these surprises in real economic data. In the intro, Real Vision's Peter Cooper discusses the new ADP numbers, the latest data on the spread of COVID-19 in the U.S., the U.K.'s emergency-use authorization of Pfizer and BioNTech SE's vaccine, and president-elect Biden's nominations for key economic positions in his administration.

Bernd Ondruch and Mark Hiley: Tales from the Frontlines of Short Selling
Bernd Ondruch, founder & CIO of Astellon Capital Partners, welcomes Mark Hiley, veteran short-seller and founder of The Analyst, for a wide-ranging conversation about the subtle and challenging field of short selling. Ondruch and Hiley recount war stories from previous shorts such as Wirecard, Asian Bamboo, and NMC Health, sharing their techniques for spotting red flags ranging from dodgy accounting to non-existent factories. Hiley and Ondruch weigh in on the common challenges short sellers face, such as margin calls, defiant long-only investors, and guileful misrepresentations by management. Lastly, after reflection on the strictures placed on short sellers under the new regulatory regime of Markets in Financial Instruments Directive II (MiFID II), Hiley and Ondruch impart some advice to investors who dare to dabble in this delicate art. Filmed on November 30, 2020. Key learnings: Identify the duration of your trade as some shorts require years to play out. Contrastingly, know when to get out. Be wary of crowded shorts as well as companies who appear to grow a great deal – it is often easier to short the value traps (unless, of course there is truly fraudulent accounting at play). Lastly, field work is incredibly important as that’s one of the last activities that computers can't do themselves.
