Who are 420 Investors?

This is the second survey of 420 Investor subscribers.  The results of the first one were based on 222 responses in late January (out of 419 members at the time), and we had 327 this time (out of approximately 1250 members).  The survey was the exact same with the exception of the last question.

Like we learned in the initial survey, we are quite diverse by age. The only difference I see is that our community is a bit more skewed towards those 50 and older than before.  The under-thirty crowd dropped from about 24% to about 15%.

I have read that investment newsletters and chat-rooms tend to have about 5% females, so, while 10.4% is low, it appears to be higher than what one would expect.  Last time, it was 6.8%.  I have to say that while outnumbered, our ladies make up for it in their strong contributions to the community.  

The results here are very important:  We all need to be aware that the powerful theme is drawing new investors into the market.  We are working on addressing the opportunity to educate novice investors - today's webinar is the first of what will be several efforts to do a better job on this front.  The numbers are identical essentially to what we learned in the last survey, with 82% of you identifying yourselves as somewhat experienced or novice.

The numbers here changed, but I think that's because many of you have made a lot of money recently!  The sweet spot for our subscribers is $25K to $500K, with 57% in that category compared to 52% in the last survey.

Last time I got a question about how can one have more than 100% in the cannabis stocks, and the answer is margin.  58% of you have more ...
