    I used to own this name, along with $NBEV . Sold both last year when I went through a “restructuring” of my portfolio. This new product has mildly peaked my interest again. Rumors back then were that $KO would possibly be in the market for a Pot beverage buyout..but, just maybe it will be PepsiCo? On my watchlist, I like the way $PEP is thinking right now – especially given the times.
