Pot Stocks Find a Bear With Analyst Eyeing ‘End of Cannabis Rainbow’
By Kriti Gupta
October 13, 2018, 3:07 AM GMT+11

QUOTE
Canada’s legalization of marijuana rolls out this week, yet one analyst is warning that the “tail end of the cannabis rainbow may be approaching much faster than investors realize.”

Veritas Investment Research analyst Stuart Rolfe initiated coverage Friday on four of Canada’s largest cannabis stocks, carrying the only sell rating on each, saying “the market still lacks perspective when it comes to the size, shape and sustainability of Canada’s proverbial pot of gold.” He initiated coverage of Aphria (price target $19), Aurora Cannabis ($13), Canopy Growth ($30) and Cronos ($4.50) giving them all sell recommendations.

"therapeutic cannabinoid" - yeah nah, probably. As Botanix Pharmaceuticals says why would you extract therapeutic cannabinoids from a plant when you can manufacture the stuff in the lab. Similar logic to the production of aspirin: lots of people use aspirin but these days virtually none of it is produced from willow bark. A couple of major problems with relying on grown cannabis is you cannot be sure of the quality or the quantity of the input (growing conditions).

Cannabis Set To Disrupt $500 Billion Market Amid DEA Approvals And Canadian Legalization: Canopy Growth CEO

The CEO of Canadian marijuana producer Canopy Growth says that marijuana is set to disrupt $500 billion in global markets.

QUOTE
Bruce Linton - whose company recently shipped cannabis from Canada to the United States using a yet-undisclosed "DEA-approved partner," told CNBC's Jim Cramer that the "back-of-the-envelope math" pencils out - between therapeutic cannabinoid treatments to a cultural shift from alcohol and tobacco to recreational pot use.

"We disrupt alcohol potentially, cigarettes potentially, in terms of smoking cessation," he told Cramer. "We really disrupt pharmaceutical, because whether or not you're geriatric care, you're dealing with arthritic conditions, you're someone who can't sleep, you're going through an oncology treatment, I think you're going to find cannabinoid therapies really hit there."

"And so you add all that together, plus the existing $200 billion illicit market, that pretty quickly gets you up around $500 billion," Linton continued. "It sounds like a 'How could it be?' but just do a bit of the back-of-the-envelope math. It's not crazy."

Reefer Madness: why marijuana shares could be the new crypto

QUOTE
Investors are craving marijuana stocks as Canada prepares to legalise pot next month, leading to giant gains for Canada-based companies listed on US exchanges. Some experts are concerned that the ending will be a buzzkill.

Billions of dollars have poured into the stocks in the last few months, and investors smell green (money, not leaves) in the air as they consider the opportunities these companies might have as the marijuana market in Canada grows, along with the possibility that the US and other countries could follow suit.

The value of one company, British Columbia-based Tilray, has jumped tenfold since its initial public offering just two months ago. The company had $US20 million ($27.4 million) in sales in 2017, but it's now worth considerably more than Macy's or Hasbro. With those huge gains have come extreme swings.

Wednesday was a trip for Tilray stock: after closing at $US154 the previous day, it opened at $US233 a share, soared to $US300, and then plunged to $US151 before rallying to close at $US214. Trading was halted several times because of that volatility.


QUOTE
And Mahoney said if there is a bubble, larger investors will protect themselves and won't overinvest in single companies, but smaller investors who see a chance to get rich quickly could suffer painful losses.

"The small investors always end up with the short end of the stick," he said. "They don't have the insight, they don't have the experience."

An investor who bought Tilray stock Wednesday might have agreed, as the shares fell 18 per cent to finish at $US176.
