(Bloomberg) — Prices for individual major medical plans are stabilizing in Pennsylvania and will continue to unless the Trump administration and Republicans in Congress take action that would hurt the program, the state’s insurance regulator said.

After a jump of more than 30% this year, insurers are raising their rates 8.8% on average in the Affordable Care Act’s individual public exchange market for 2018, the Pennsylvania Insurance Department said. All five insurers that sold plans this year will again offer health insurance next year in the market, which covers about 500,000 people in the state, according a department statement.

  • [By Peter Graham]

    A long term performance chart shows GW Pharmaceuticals PLC outperforming other marijuana stocks like Zynerba Pharmaceuticals Inc (NASDAQ: ZYNE), Cannabis Science Inc (OTCMKTS: CBIS) and Medical Marijuana Inc (OTCMKTS: MJNA), but shares are also once again falling off from all-time highs:

    This rapid growth in legal pot has create quite the demand for marijuana stocks. The seven largest marijuana stocks by market cap have all put on a show over the past couple of years. Here are those seven “green giants” listed with their market caps as of March 17, 2017, along with their trailing one-year total returns.


    GW Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:GWPH): $3.0 billion, up 64% Canopy Growth Corp. (NASDAQOTH:TWMJF): $904 million, up 259% Aphria (NASDAQOTH:APHQF) $440 million, up 381% Aurora Cannabis (NASDAQOTH:ACBFF): $482 million, up 299% AXIM Biotechnologies (NASDAQOTH:AXIM): $562 million, up 1,720% Corbus Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:CRBP): $450 million, up 431% Medical Marijuana (NASDAQOTH:MJNA): $221 million, up 254%

    As you can see, these are some hefty valuations — and some exceptionally strong moves higher on the heels of marijuana’s expansion. With the exception of GW Pharmaceuticals, every one of the largest marijuana stocks has at least tripled in value over the trailing 12 months, with cannabinoid-based drug developer AXIM Biotechnologies skyrocketing more than 1,700%!

    As increasingly more marijuana growers entered the market and more states allowed residents to legally grow marijuana, cannabis prices dropped throughout 2016. Wholesale marijuana prices late in the year were roughly half the levels of 12 months earlier. Will this trend continue — and possibly hurt leading marijuana stocks including Aphria (NASDAQOTH:APHQF),Aurora Cannabis (NASDAQOTH:ACBFF), Medical Marijuana,Inc.(NASDAQOTH:MJNA), and even GW Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ:GWPH) in the process?

    Recommendation #3 Worked Well – I also recommended that you “buy” any marijuana stocks you liked in late December and in anticipation of late December 2016 tax loss selling followed by a January effect increase in price-per-share or recovery. That is the topic of this article. I also had a few stock picks: (1) Cannabix Technologies (OTCPK:BLOZF) is up 10%, (2) Breathtec Biomed (OTCQB:BTHCF) is up 13%, (3) Bayport International (OTCPK:BAYP) is flat, though news might result in an increase by month end – this is a risky one, and (4) Medical Marijuana (OTCPK:MJNA) is up 6%.

    Look out Cannabis Science Inc (OTCMKTS:CBIS), and step aside Medical Marijuana Inc (OTCMKTS:MJNA). There’s a new cannabis name on the scene…. Algae Dynamics Corp. (OTCMKTS:ADYNF). It may not be known (or named) like its marijuana peers, but give it time. This small cap company has a very big idea, and it’s going to sprout soon.

    Yes, Algae Dynamics is an algae company. It’s not just an algae company though.

    Algae Dynamics is the owner of the proprietary BioSilo ™ process. BioSilo is a way of growing algae quickly and effectively…. a mix of an open-pond system and a photobioreactor, which is a light-driven approach to growing algae. It can be viewed as a “best of both worlds” approach, lowering the typical cost of algae farming, while the modular design makes it easy to maintain.

    The company could go a lot of directions with the technology, Most of the tens of thousands of species of algae are rather flexible in how they can be purposed, and what they can become. Algae Dynamics is first focused on the development of two kinds of products though…. Chlorella, and Omega-3.

    Chlorella is a type of microalgae that can be processed into a consumable powder by drying it until it takes a powder form, similar to coffee. Chlorella is rich in minerals, prebiotics, vitamins, and other nutritional substances. It can be added to a baked goods and a number of other products, or taken as a supplement on its own. Chlorella is used in over 1,000 products in the food and beverage markets. Algae Dynamics estimates the global Chlorella market was $210.3 million in 2014 and is expected to reach $265.5 million in 2018.

    Despite a market for Chlorella in North America, there are no commercial North American producers of it.

    Due to its health benefits, Omega-3 oil can be added to a very wide range of products. Consumers are increasingly aware of these benefits too, leading to substantial growth in the industry; health supplements compr
