GW Pharma, Mentor Capital and Terra Tech lead in NASDAQ Comparison
SAN DIEGO –(UPTICK Newswire – Dec. 11, 2015) — Mentor Capital, Inc. (MNTR) announces that the leaders in Mentor’s new Cannabis Index for Value Investors were Mentor Capital at (252%), Terra Tech (TRTC) at (86%) and GW Pharmaceuticals Plc. (GWPH) at (33%) when compared to the NASDAQ average set at (100%). Sales plus book value were compared to market capitalization for leading marijuana stocks to establish this new marijuana stock index.
“The Mentor Capital Cannabis Index for Value Investors is intended to provide an alternative business value focused metric for investors to examine, as opposed to the plethora of share price tracking compilations common around cannabis stocks. Momentum, technical analysis, day trading and chart watching are susceptible to stock manipulation schemes while value investing is less so,” counsels Mentor CEO, Chet Billingsley. “Mentor Capital is pleased that our value focused investment approach has paid off in increasing Mentor book value and revenue per share ratios which now more than double that of the Nasdaq Composite Index, which itself outstrips typical cannabis ratios.
“For interested investors, we will publish our cannabis index and comparative value oriented ratios at our company website regularly,” affirms Billingsley. “As required, Mentor does not provide any investment advisory, purchase or price recommendations from the historical financial information we portray.” Other marijuana stocks of interest and their respective ratios to NASDAQ in the growing index include: Cannabis Science Inc. (OTCMkts:CBIS) at (-20); Hemp, Inc. (OTCMkts:HEMP) at (10%); MassRoots, Inc. (MSRT) at (3%); and Medbox, Inc. (MDBX) at (-684%).
