Aurora Cannabis, Canopy Growth, EXMceuticals - Profits with turnaround
2019 was not a good year for investors in the cannabis sector with a long-term approach. After a never-ending rally in the years before, the party was over.

Share price recovery has begun
The shares of Aurora Cannabis changed hands in March 2019 in the peak at 13.67 CAD - the year before the historic high was even 16.24 CAD. What then followed was a flawless trend towards CAD 0.00, which ended last week at a low of CAD 1.96.
On yesterday's trading day, the share was traded at the closing price of 2.68 CAD. A return of over 36% within one week would have been theoretically possible. The market value of Aurora Cannabis is currently CAD 2.93 billion.
Clearly caught up from the low
With yesterday's closing price of 32.46 CAD and a current market value of 11.31 billion CAD, Canopy Growth is one of the top companies in the cannabis industry. In 2018 the shares changed hands at a peak of 76.68 CAD and last year the peak was 70.99 CAD.

Starting point for turnaround
For a long time, the stock of the newcomer EXMceuticals was excluded from the price capers of the well-known names. Although the share price was volatile, it nevertheless moved sideways between 0.87 CAD and 1.72 CAD. But in November 2019 the share price dropped further and was traded at CAD 0.45 at the beginning of 2020.
