Top 5 Medical Stocks To Buy Right Now

Tropical Storm Ida damaged Acreage Holdings Inc. (OTC:ACRGF) cannabis cultivation site in Sewell, South Jersey, delaying the company's cultivation plans. Acreage had planned to start producing marijuana at the site in early 2022.

Now, that is “unlikely,” said Steve Goertz, Acreage’s CFO, who described the damage as “extensive.”

Acreage bought Compassionate Care Foundation last year and also grows medical marijuana in Egg Harbor Township. It has dispensaries there, in Atlantic City and in Monroe Township, reported NJ.com. 

After Hurricane Ida made landfall in Louisiana on August 29, it hit New Jersey the night of September 1, killing 27 people. Six counties have been declared major disaster areas by President Joe Biden.

Cannabis businesses were affected along the coast. “Climate disruption is something cannabis companies, unfortunately, must come to expect, '' said Kaelan Castetter, a New York cannabis consultant whose Manhattan client saved his CBD shop from major flood damage only to return home to a flooded apartment, reported MJBizDaily.

In May, Acreage and Medterra CBD, LLC joined forces to develop a CBD-based collection of products. The move followed the sale of Acreage's Florida operations to Red White & Bloom Brands, Inc. (CSE:RWB) (OTCQX:RWBYF) for $60 million.

Top 10 Undervalued Stocks To Watch For 2021

When it comes to selecting dividend stocks to buy, investors can take their pick: high yield stocks, blue chip stocks with safe payouts, stocks with high dividend growth rates, value stocks; the list goes on.

But selecting undervalued dividend stocks is particularly advantageous for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is that dividend yield is higher when a stock’s price is lower, as they move inversely.

Here are 3 undervalued dividend stocks to buy for high total returns:

    We asked three of our Foolish contributors for their top dividends today andPhillips 66 Partners (NYSE:PSXP), Las Vegas Sands (NYSE:LVS), andHess Midstream Partners (NYSE:HESM)were at the top of the list. And these are very different dividends indeed.

  • [By Todd Campbell]

    In the past, Hess’ growth was hamstrung by mature assets that provided stable production but little opportunity for upside. That’s changing. Hess is selling slow-growth assets, and last year itcreatedHess Midstream Partners (NYSE:HESM), a master limited partnership it maintains an ownership stake in that controls Hess midstream assets in the Bakken shale.

Theysettled on Hess Midstream Partners (NYSE:HESM), AT & T (NYSE:T), andAlliance Resource Partners (NASDAQ:ARLP). Are these top stocks to consider buying now?
