Investing on Thanksgiving Day: An Analysis of Socially Responsible Investing

Written by Jeff Siegel
Posted November 25, 2021

The turkey has been brining all night.

Pie dough was set in the refrigerator before bed, and plenty of wood for the fireplace has been stacked since we’ll have that thing running all day.

Some of my relatives came over last night to help get the house ready, and after that was done, my cousin and I shared a joint and talked politics. 

He’s a good dude, but politically, we don’t always agree on things. 

For instance, last night he was praising Joe Biden for working to create a more just society in the U.S. I thought this was ironic as he and I sat there smoking a joint while literally thousands of people are in jail right now for pretty much doing the same thing, knowing full well that Biden could easily pardon all those folks so they could be home with their families on Thanksgiving.

That would be an exercise in creating a more just society. 

But the only thing he pardoned recently was a couple of turkeys for an obligatory photo op.

Biden has always talked a good game about criminal justice reform and social justice, but when given the opportunity to actually do something, he falls flat. 

Fortunately, the basic fundamentals of free market capitalism are seeing to it that the prohibition of cannabis — which was racist in its inception and a violation of personal sovereignty for all free people — is coming to an end.  

And this, dear reader, is creating one of the most honorable investments any person can make, as it delivers both wealth creation and the ability to help facilitate the end of the war on drugs — the costliest and deadliest war this country has ever waged.

Get Paid for Doing Something Good

If you’re a regular reader of these pages, you know my investment thesis: Do well by doing good.

This is certainly relevant when it comes to the marijuana market, where my early recommendations on a number of pot stocks delivered some pretty life-changing gains, including:

  • Aphria Inc. (TSX: APHA), up 1,174%
  • OrganiGram Holdings (TSX-V: OGI), up 1,185%
  • Canopy Growth Corporation (TSX: WEED), up 3,015%

By investing in those companies as well as about a dozen other cannabis companies, not only was I able to help investors make a lot of money on pot stocks but our investments also served as a catalyst for the dismantling of cannabis prohibition.  

To reiterate: doing well by doing good!

But this idea of investing in industries or companies that align with your values isn’t exclusive to cannabis.

Whether it’s clean energy, sustainable agriculture, or biotech, there is something very satisfying about knowing that your investments are making you money while also making the world a better place.

In fact, my colleague Alex Koyfman recently introduced me to a new opportunity to make a ton of cash from a company that has delivered a new form of air travel that requires no pollutive fuels or noisy jet engines and could ultimately make flying so cheap, it could save consumers billions of dollars every year in travel costs. 

To me, this hits all the right buttons for investing in something that’s making the world a better place but is also so lucrative it’s virtually impossible to not profit from it.

Here’s a copy of the investment note Alex sent me on this deal.

Since it's a holiday and you’re probably not required to work today, I’d encourage you to take a few minutes to read it as it could end up being the smartest decision you’ve ever made on Thanksgiving Day.  

To a new way of life and a new generation of wealth...
