Investing in Historically Recession Resistant Stocks - ACT
Email not displaying correctly?
There's been a lot of talk about a looming recession. But difficult markets don't stop people from indulging in the pleasure they receive from their leisure habits, such as drinking and smoking. In fact, products often viewed as "vices" are purchased much like consumer staples. Additionally, the lockdown caused by COVID-19 has lead to increased alcohol, tobacco and marijuana sales.
The AdvisorShares Vice ETF (ACT) actively seeks to take advantage of this trend by investing in alcohol, cannabis and tobacco stocks.
Investment Growth: ACT | Alcohol, Beer & Wine | Cannabis | Tobacco

Before investing you should carefully consider the Fund’s investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses.

Investing involves risks including possible loss of principal. Cannabis-related companies are subject to various laws and regulations that may differ at the state/local and federal level. These laws and regulations may significantly affect a cannabis-related company’s ability to secure financing, impact the market for marijuana industry sales and services, and set limitations on marijuana use, production, transportation, and storage. In addition to regulatory action, litigation initiated by private citizens or companies could have a negative impact on the financial and/or operational status of cannabis-related companies. Pronouncements from the current Administration suggest the Department of Justice (“DOJ”) may push back against states where marijuana use and possession is legal, step up the enforcement of federal marijuana laws and the prosecution of nonviolent federal drug crimes and, in the event the Rohrabacher-Farr amendment is not renewed by Congress, begin using federal funds to prevent states from implementing laws that authorize medical marijuana use, possession, distribution, and cultivation. Such actions by the DOJ could produce a chilling effect on the industry’s growth and discourage banks from expanding their services to cannabis-related companies where such services are currently limited.

Companies in the food, beverage and tobacco industry are very competitive and subject to a number of risks. Demographic and product trends, changing consumer preferences, nutritional and health-related concerns, competitive pricing, marketing campaigns, environmental factors, adverse changes in general economic conditions, government regulation, food inspection and processing control, consumer boycotts, risks of product tampering, product liability claims, and the availability and expense of liability insurance can affect the demand for, and success of, such companies’ products in the marketplace. For a full summary of the risks please see the prospectus.
