The stock market offers a huge value to entrepreneurs who have money to invest but can not figure out which cannabis stocks have value and which have none. Small business IPOs are more commonplace, too, and businesses in the cannabis sector have gone public and sold shares to raise capital, while the companies manage their business and their employees efficiently using tools like the best payroll software you can find online. Ken Harrell, a stock market guru with the Bullish Institute in Detroit, analyzes which stock opportunities are duds and which are winners.

Ken has been a featured speaker at conferences in the past, including the Michigan Cannabis Business Development Group’s ‘Outlook for 2019’ Conference at the Lansing Radisson Hotel on December 2, 2018.
