Second row enticing with potential
Canopy Growth, with a market capitalization of CAD 8.61 billion, is the heavyweight among the listed companies in the cannabis industry. Canopy Growth shares have traded from CAD 18.23 to CAD 70.98 over the past 12 months. The indication that the lowest level was reached in the past four weeks is a mere formality. On Friday, the Canopy Growth shares were trading at 24.72 CAD.
There are also exciting second-tier companies that do not yet have to defend a billion-dollar valuation, but are working towards the big breakthrough next year. The developer of cannabis drinks, BevCanna Enterprises, currently has less than CAD 20 million market capitalization and the producer of cannabis in Africa, EXMceuticals, less than CAD 30 million. The two newcomers have promising and scalable business models.
End of the year offers bargains
Investors wishing to position themselves in cannabis may have a particularly interesting window of opportunity for their exposure in the current month of December. Tax Loss Season is a term for experienced investors that stands for tax optimization. The phenomenon of shareholders throwing their loss positions onto the market is a recurring year-end ritual, especially in Canada.
This development is clear in the case of listed companies that have suffered greater price losses in recent months. The chart trend of a loss in value often ends in a panicky sell-off in December. As is well known, the profits lie in purchasing and bargain hunters can get their money's worth with low limits.
