After months, the moment of truth is at hand. The Big Cannabis stocks that traded in unison are finally going in separate directions. Investors can recognize that they’re different companies.
Aurora Cannabis Inc. (NYSE:ACB) and Tilray Inc. (NASDAQ:TLRY) are still trailing the pack. Wall Street just isn’t convinced that these companies have what it takes to thrive in a competitive market.
But Canopy Growth Corp. (NYSE:CGC) has had a fantastic week, soaring 12 percent on news that its new chief investment officer is coming from corporate parent Constellation Brands Inc. (NYSE:STZ).
While there were adults in the corner office before, institutional investors need someone in charge they can respect. And that’s the differentiating factor here.
I’m also pleased to see Aphria Inc. (NYSE:APHA) up 24 percent this week. It has a differentiated business, too, with its focus on medicinal markets already translating into profitability.
When you see winners and losers emerge, consolidation is at hand. Turbo Trader subscribers are already in position to make money on that process. Are you?
