There are over 300 publicly traded cannabis companies and what seems like a ground floor investment opportunity it doesn’t come without risk. At Technical420 we are strong believers that “Risk comes from not understand what you are doing”.
Technical420 developed a proprietary algorithm which merges technical, fundamental, momentum, and market sentiment data to yield the most comprehensive, all-inclusive analysis possible. To obtain this raw data faster than you would find elsewhere, Technical420 utilizes a specialty terminal service provided by Thomson Reuters (Thomson One System) that sends us key company financials and news as soon as it hits the tape.
Best-in-class data mining technology
Technical420 is the only cannabis analytics service which incorporates qualitative data mining into our platform. By teaming with Isentium LLC, an industry leader in data mining technology, we are able to ingest millions of finance related tweets and other “soft” data and use it to determine how such information affects market sentiment. Their advanced sentiment analysis software, which is audited weekly, has a superb track record of predicting how the market reacts to important company news and events.
Due to the infantile and developmental nature of the cannabis industry, these firms cannot be analyzed like your ordinary publically traded companies. Where other firms focus just on “hard” numerical data, Technical420 understands that there is more to companies than just the numbers and uses the value hidden in qualitative information to your advantage.
SEC filings separate the real companies from the trash
The final piece of Technical420’s analytical puzzle is the way we approach fundamental analysis. We will utilize company SEC filings such as 10-K, 10-Q, 8-K, etc. As soon as the filing is registered on Edgar.gov, our analysts will take a human approach and read through each report to extract all important company metrics and info. Such best practices help us verify the accuracy of press releases put out by the company in the preceding period and gives us insight into how each company is acting on all-important growth initiatives.
Technical420 realizes that the days of one-dimensional, by-the-book analysis are over. We live in a globalized, instantaneous economy and operate in an even more volatile, developing industry. Having a multi-faceted approach to analysis that incorporates both numbers and qualitative information isn’t just the best way achieve success in today’s world, it’s the only way, and we look to share in that success together.
