This Cannabis Stock is Higher than the Rest

Sorry, I could not resist the pun in that head line. Relative and absolute strength is often dependent on timeframe. One stock may show upside leadership on a one month timeframe, but be lagging on the three and six month timeframes. For example, Tilray (TLRY) is up 16.37% over the past month, but down 43.35% over the last six months. This is why chartists should compare performance across different timeframes. The PerfChart below shows 3-month performance for the Alternative Harvest ETF (MJ) and six cannabis stocks. Only one stock is up over the one, three and six month timeframes: GW Pharmaceuticals.

Looking through the individual price charts, the Alternative Harvest ETF (MJ) and five stocks are below their 200-day SMA. Cronos (CRON) and GW Pharm (GWPH) are the only two above their 200-day SMAs. Thus, using the 200-day as the benchmark, these two are the clear leaders. GWPH is the furthest above its 200-day and the strongest of the two so I will focus on this chart.
