3. Cannabis stocks are high.

Marijuana stocks are typically favored by the pros at The Motley Fool, and investors found news of a potential merger between two notable names “exciting,” according to a Fool report yesterday. After hours Tuesday, Bloomberg announced that Canadian cannabis companies Tilray (NASDAQ: TLRY) and Aphria (NASDAQ: APHA) could merge as soon as this week, likely taking the Tilray name but keeping Aphria CEO Irwin Simon on board. Tilray closed 6.8% higher and Aphria rose nearly 3.1%.

4. Is Tesla stock “too high” again?

Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) stock dropped more than 1% yesterday, and analysts say the stock could “plummet” after it enters the S&P 500 Monday. Gordon Johnson, founder and CEO of GLJ Research, said that inclusion in the S&P 500, along with losing government-backed electric vehicle credits to competitors, could cause the stock to fall even more.

Buckle your seatbelts; it could be a wild ride next week, but at least it will give fans an
excuse to parade around in their Tesla short-shorts.
