AURORA, BEVCANNA, CANOPY OR EXMCEUTICALS - WHICH CANNABIS SHARE HAS POTENTIAL?
The shares of Canadian cannabis companies have lost significant value this year. There are exceptions, such as BevCanna and EXMceuticals, but the well-known players such as Aurora and Canopy have fallen significantly. This was preceded by a period of price rises and forecasts that never seemed to end. In the meantime, the phase of speculation is over and it is all about facts. Speculators go out and investors stand on the sidelines and observe the development or already use the chance to enter.

AURORA SHARE LOST MORE THAN 60%.
The shares of Aurora and Canopy have lost significant value this year. The shares of Aurora changed hands this year at the top of the Canadian home stock exchange at CAD 13.67. The shares of Aurora have lost a lot of value this year. On yesterday's trading day, the stock was sold at 4.78 CAD. The low for the year so far was 4.58 CAD. At the peak of the hype in 2018, the share was still listed at CAD 16.74. The current market value is CAD 4.88 billion.
WHEN WAS THE BOTTOM FOUND AT CANOPY?
The development is similar for the industry giant Canopy. The company's shares peak in 2019 at 70.99 CAD. In the previous year even a price of 76.68 CAD was reached. Size also does not protect this title from a price correction and in the meantime the share is listed close to the low for the year of 25.00 CAD. Yesterday, the share was sold at 26.85 CAD. Canopy's market value has thus shrunk to CAD 9.35 billion.
STOCK EXCHANGE DEBUTANTS OFFER ALTERNATIVE
Meanwhile, the situation at BevCanna and EXMceuticals looks more relaxed, but this is certainly also due to the size of the two companies. BevCanna is a producer of cannabis drinks and, like CBD producer EXMceuticals, celebrated its stock market debut this year. The two companies were thus spared the hype in 2018 and the share price trend is thus calmer - without massive setbacks. The company value of BevCanna amounts to about 20.93 million CAD with a share price of 0.44 CAD.
At yesterday's closing price of CAD 1.00, EXMceuticals reported a stock market value of CAD 36.55. The company's share price was around CAD 20.93 million. Jonathan Summers is Chairman of EXMceuticals and will present the company to investors at this year's German Equity Forum of Deutsche Börse AG in Frankfurt from 25 to 27 November 2019.
