Pot stocks are surging today, after Michigan on Tuesday voted to legalize recreational marijuana -- becoming the 10th U.S. state to do so -- while voters in Utah and Missouri approved measures giving access to medical marijuana in both states. Among those trading higher today are GW Pharmaceuticals PLC (NASDAQ:GWPH), New Age Beverages Corp (NASDAQ:NBEV), and Tilray Inc (NASDAQ:TLRY).

Analysts Remain Bullish on GW Pharmaceuticals Stock

GW Pharmaceuticals stock was up 4.4% at its intraday peak, last seen trading 2.1% higher at $145.71. The shares sold off sharply from their late-September high near $180, but found a foothold around $132 -- around its 320-day moving average, mid-April bull gap, and year-to-date breakeven level.

Short Sellers Target New Age Beverages Stock

New Age Beverages stock shed 15.3% in October, before finding support at its 60-day moving average. The shares are up 3% today to trade at $4.36, set for just their second close in positive territory this month. Longer term, NBEV has more than doubled on a year-to-date basis.

NBEV's recent struggles have come alongside intense selling pressure from shorts. Short interest surged 13.8% in the most recent reporting period to 11.62 million shares -- the most on record -- representing more than one-third of the security's available float.

Tilray Options Bears Bet on a Quick Retreat

Tilray stock is up 5.3% at $112.52, but remains stuck below its 50-day moving average. The equity breached this recently formed trendline late last month, but remains well above Tilray's July 18 initial public offering (IPO) price of $17 per share.
