AVT shares jump over 15% on news

CORONA, Calif., Feb. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- AVT, Inc. (OTC Markets: AVTC) (www.autoretail.com), a leader in custom vending machines and automated retail stores announced that their shares jumped over 15% on Friday, presumably on news that the federal government took a significant step toward legitimizing the marijuana industry.

The Washington Post stated, "The Obama administration on Friday gave the banking industry the green light to finance and do business with legal marijuana sellers, a move that could further legitimize the burgeoning industry."

AVT provides biometrically secure storage and dispensing systems to a leader in the marijuana industry, as well as vapor pen dispensers nationwide.

The sector is already up 150% in 2014 according to Newsweek, and up 385% since January 1, 2013, according to Mainstreet.com.

CNN Money reported on the recent surge in marijuana stocks, and noted that Medbox, a valued customer of AVT, was up more than 20%.  

NBC News summed it up best when they stated, "Investors see legal marijuana as growth industry."
