Cannabis Corner: Earnings Ahead

We’ve seen winners and losers emerge among Big Cannabis stocks in recent weeks. The coming wave of earnings reports could finally solidify that trend with differentiated fundamentals.

I’m looking for Aurora Cannabis Corp. (NYSE:ACB) to disappoint on Thursday, May 14. Expectations are low, but I think they’re reasonable.

Even if ACB’s revenue comes in on target, this company is not growing appreciably. Guidance for the current quarter probably points below last year’s numbers.

For a stock that depends on growth to support its valuation, that’s a bad narrative. I’d avoid the stock until we see the numbers. This means I’ll have more to say on the subject next week.

On the other hand, Tilray Inc. (NASDAQ:TLRY) is actually growing. As long as the company managed to book $50 million in sales last quarter, I’ll consider it a win.

With the U.S. unemployment rate soaring to 14.7% in April, the fight to reopen the economy and get cash flowing again has become more urgent than ever. Businesses that shut down in March have now missed two rent payments. While this month looks a little brighter, June will still be tough for many tenants and their corporate landlords. After all, 29% of all small businesses have closed in the last two weeks, which means more than half the commercial spaces in this country are dark right now.
