My team and I are here in Oakland, Calif. – and the Golden State Warriors clinching the NBA Championship Monday night isn’t the only big news.

Vincente Fox, former president of Mexico, is getting ready to take the stage at the Fourth Annual Cannabis Business Summit & Expo – the epicenter of the business, technology, and politics of legal marijuana.

And there’s a palpable buzz in the air.

But lucky for you folks, Fox has already debriefed with a small group of us before his scheduled remarks…

While Wall Street‘s punishment of Snap Inc. (NYSE: SNAP) following its disappointing first-ever quarterly report was overly harsh, that doesn’t mean most investors should buy in – yet.

As I told you when we named Toshiba the No. 1 Tech Turkey of 2017 early this year, this company’s management has absolutely no credibility. Has their nuclear power business decisions lost shareholders $6 billion… $9 billion… more? We don’t know.

And now they’re about to make another huge mistake. So late last week, I appeared on CNBC World’s The Rundown to help explain what’s going on over there.

Watch it here.
