ILAB 117 – The Big Short? Danny Moses Now Calls The Big Long – Cannabis

“In the markets in the US where cannabis was legal, alcohol sales were dropping tremendously”

– Danny Moses

A Wall Street insider since 1991, Danny Moses has seen his fair share of Bull and Bear Markets and has been able to observe the markets from a number of perspectives: Municipal Bond analyst, Institutional Sell-Side Broker, Trader, and Hedge Fund Manager.

The book, and later the movie, “The Big Short” chronicled a few people who saw the housing bubble forming in 2004 and figured out how to successfully navigate through the volatility in the financial markets. Danny was part of this small group who were forward-thinking and brave enough to have bet against the market and to have participated in one of the greatest trades in Wall Street history.

During this episode, Danny will talk about investing in the emerging industry of cannabis which he now calls ‘The Big Long’. Learn how and why you should invest including what companies and categories to choose. You’ll also hear entertaining insight into “The Big Short” movie and how it compares to what actually happened in real life.
