It has been a cold week for a lot of formerly hot stocks and the cannabis group hasn’t been immune to the weather. Nonetheless, one stock, in particular, keeps rallying.
Aphria Inc. (NASDAQ:APHA) gained 18% this week, leaping ahead of just about all of its rivals on Wall Street. It’s not hard to love this stock.
This is going to be the biggest cultivator in the industry once it completes its merger with Tilray Corp. (NASDAQ:TLRY). And even at this scale, the business actually makes money on an operating basis.
Additional capacity and a bigger market footprint will only create additional efficiencies and boost profitability. That’s what the TLRY merger will do.
But APHA doesn’t even need the help. Sales are tracking 33% above last year’s level.
Archrival Canopy Growth Corp. (NYSE:CGC) isn’t growing that fast. Half the time, Aurora Cannabis Inc. (NYSE:ACB) isn’t even growing.
If you’re following cannabis stocks for a dynamic high, those stocks just aren’t going in the right direction. APHA is. And I think the numbers get better from here.
You won’t find APHA in any of my subscriber portfolios. As much as it pains me to say it, a tiny company in my IPO Edge portfolio has taken its spot in my heart.
That little stock is doing even better than APHA, beating the giant’s performance by 5 percentage points this week alone. What is it? Stick around, and I might tell you someday.
