WHITEFISH, MT — January 6th, 2014 — CannabisFN.com, a dedicated financial network covering new, emerging and established companies operating in the burgeoning multi-billion dollar medical marijuana (“MMJ”) and cannabis industries, today announced the launch of an investor audience development program for cannabis and MMJ public companies, as well as a partnership with MMJ-Index.com to become a leading source for industry news, analysis and insights.
The Market Defining Companies Program helps clients reach a broad audience that includes individual and institutional investors that are researching cannabis and MMJ related opportunities on leading industry specific and mainstream financial websites including Yahoo! Finance and social media like SeekingAlpha’s insta-blog. The program enables cannabis and MMJ companies to legitimize themselves among high quality investors, analysts, and media in order to dramatically improve their shareholder base, equity dynamics, and financial brand identity.
CannabisFN.com’s partnership with the “Marijuana Index” at www.mmj-index.com, provides investors with exclusive consolidated data on public companies that lead the cannabis and medical marijuana industry. These companies include names like Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTCBB: MJNA), Peoplestring Corp. (OTCBB: PLPE), GrowLife, Inc. (OTCBB: PHOT), and CannaVEST Corp. (OTCBB: CANV) that form a composite with an aggregate market capitalization of approximately $1.25 billion, as of November 25, 2013.
“Legal U.S. marijuana sales are expected to top $2.3 billion in 2014, but the lack of credible coverage by the financial news media has made it difficult for public companies in the space to reach high-quality active investors,” said CannabisFN.com President Frank Lane. “CannabisFN.com was designed to provide investors with first-class industry coverage, while helping public companies effectively reach this audience to build value.”
