The value of any investment can go up or down depending on news, trends and market conditions. We are not investment advisers, so do your own due diligence to understand the risks before you invest.
For many investors, the experimental psychedelics industry may be too risky to invest in. Most companies in this sector are privately held, and psychedelic stocks are often volatile penny or OTC stocks.Aside from being risky, these stocks can also be difficult to purchase. Most stocks will require you to have a brokerage account that offers access to OTC and international stocks, like Interactive Brokers or TradeStation.
For investors willing to take the risk, the best psychedelic stocks depend on your portfolio and investment goals — while volatility can be ideal for day traders, long-term investors will want to look to stocks with steadier gains over time.
