Why is Canopy Growth Stock Going up?
There are a few reasons why CGC stock is surging. First, it is a cannabis company. Second, there is a possibility that marijuana will be decriminalized. Decriminalization bills are being considered by the U.S. Congress, but so far they haven’t passed. Regardless, cannabis companies are preparing to enter the U.S. market with acquisitions like Tilray, which bought craft brewer SweetWater Brewing and Breckenridge Distillery. It also acquired hemp products maker Manitoba Harvest.
Lastly, Canopy has managed to expand its business internationally. It has partnered with cannabis production platforms and is educating consumers on its products. This has created a large market for the company, as well as the potential to increase its shareholder return in the long term.
However, Canopy Growth has faced some setbacks in recent months. The company reported a per-share loss of 1.46 Canadian dollars for its fiscal fourth quarter. Analysts had expected a loss of 30 cents. Net revenue in the three months ended in March was 111.8 million, below analyst expectations of 130 million.
