420 Investor by Alan Brochstein

Click here to download The 420 Investor Guide to Cannabis Stocks - a free e-book featuring Alan Brochstein's outlook for marijuana investors.

420 Investor is in front of the curve, as Wall Street isn't yet focused on the Green Rush. Medical and recreational marijuana legalization are already beginning to change our world in a significant way, and the investment opportunities will be substantial for years to come.  

The goal of 420 Investor, which is hosted by Alan Brochstein, the "Cannabis Financial Analyst", is to be the go-to place for Green Rush investors to learn together and explore the investment opportunities. Alan shares his analysis, fields questions and makes trading and investment recommendations, but the service goes well beyond just one person's input. In the chat room and throughout the site, members discuss any topic related to the Green Rush, allowing everyone to benefit from the community's diversity. On "Toking Tuesdays", Alan leads a lively discussion in the chat-room for an hour (9-10 PM EST).  Alan also hosts live events with industry leaders so that his community can get its questions answered and better understand the evolving landscape.  The opportunistic trading ideas give subscribers the chance to "earn while they learn".

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.
