Cannabis Corner: Good News From the North

Hilary Kramer

Hilary Kramer is an investment analyst and portfolio manager with 30 years of experience on Wall Street.

Across the history of the cannabis industry, sentiment and fundamentals have often moved in opposite directions. That’s what makes it especially gratifying to see stocks and sales move together this week.

The latest Canadian numbers reveal that cannabis sales jumped 5% between July and August, hitting a record in the process. That’s roughly $186 million a month for the growers to share.

Every Canadian province reflected the uptick. And with revenue pointing in the right direction, I’m happy to report that the stocks are rallying.

Canopy Growth Corp. (NYSE:CGC) is up 38% this month. Tilray Corp. (NASDAQ:TLRY) is doing even better. Even Aurora Cannabis Inc. (NYSE:ACB) has erased its post-earnings losses and gotten back to work.

On the retail side, GrowGeneration Corp. (NASDAQ:GRWG) and Green Thumb Industries Inc. (OTCMKTS:GTBIF) are up around 28% in the last three weeks. It looks like a boom.

Admittedly, it’s still the early stages, and these stocks have a lot of heavy lifting left to do before long-term shareholders can feel good about the future. But that future now looks brighter than it did a week ago… and for once, the stocks are responding.
