This is the first appearance of a marijuana stock on the touts list, but I can assure you it won't be the last. I plan to give the sector increasing coverage as it continues to mature. In that regard, I'd informally mentioned a potential 'mechanical' trade taking shape a week ago in Weed, Inc (OTCPink:BUDZ), a firm that aspires to be a giant in the business as cannabis becomes increasingly legal across the U.S.

The main focus of this report is the NOAA February, Three-Month and 15-Month Forecasts, the JAMSTEC Three-Season Forecast, and a comparison of the JAMSTEC with the NOAA forecast. There are some areas of agreement for the first season (Spring) and then more divergence for Summer. NOAA only addresses temperature for next Winter while JAMSTEC forecasts a dry West and a wet East. The differences in the forecasts are due to relatively small differences in the estimates of the timing of the demise of the La Nina Conditions and the forecasts for what follows for this coming Summer and Winter. We address the possibility that NOAA is behind the curve re the ENSO Transition.
