Top 5 Cannabis Stocks to Watch in 2020

When you think of the stock market, the last thing you probably think of is cannabis and marijuana. However, you would be mistaken to discount this booming industry, the marijuana industry is expected to triple in the next five years.

As states and entire countries decriminalize or legalize cannabis and/or its components, there are loads of opportunities for entrepreneurs and existing companies.

But as in any nascent industry, there are also loads of risks and bad actors. Whether you’re a first-time investor or a seasoned veteran, it pays to understand all of the moving parts.

This guide will get you up to speed and give you a list of the top 5 cannabis stocks to watch in 2020.

As Cannabis, or most popularly one type of cannabis namely marijuana, has become increasingly more popular and even legal in some parts of the world, multiple public companies have emerged which provide individuals and institutions opportunities to invest in this new product and make a potential profit. This article will discuss a top 5 list of cannabis stocks to look at in 2020.

Why Cannabis Stocks?

Before discussing the top 5 Cannabis stocks to watch in 2020, we will first list a few reasons why cannabis stocks may be your next best investment:

  1. The demand of cannabis-containing products is increasing. As stated in the introduction of this article, a lot of new products are arising and ever more importantly. Cannabis is being legalized and classified as essential in some medical treatments across a variety of countries. This will, of course, increase the demand and usage of these products, bringing growth to investors.
  2. Cannabis stocks are currently undervalued. If we are certain that this new product will be successful in the future, it is a no-brainer to start investing and buying stocks now while they are so cheap.
  3. A lot of these companies still have huge upside potential. At the current moment in time, they are struggling to stay profitable as demand is still quite low, but as soon as the rest of the world catches onto this product, huge potential could be fulfilled and early investors could reap the rewards.

The top 5 companies listed below have been chosen due to their international presence and market capitalization.

1. Canopy Growth

Canopy Growth Corporation (TSX: WEED, NYSE: CGC) is the largest cannabis stock at the moment with a market cap of $6.99 Billion. This stock can be traded on the NYSE and is currently traded at 21.22 CAD ($14.99 USD) as of April 2020. Canopy Growth shows a great business plan and profit-gaining strategy.

2. GW Pharmaceuticals

GWPH has previously stated that they do not want to be seen as part of the “marijuana stock” group, but this cannot be hidden as they are currently have a market cap of $3.21 billion. This stock can currently be traded on NASDAQ and currently trades at 105.76 USD.

3. Curaleaf Holdings

Curaleaf is the largest multistate operator in the United States, bragging with a market cap of $2.75 billion. The company is public and their stocks can be traded on OTC under CURLF. The price of one stock in this company is $5.76 CAD, which is equal to $4.07 USD.

4. Cronos Group

The Cronos Group currently has a market cap of $2.3 billion and sells their stocks at 8.37 CAD ($5.91) under CRON. Although Cronos group is not such a big producer as the rest of the candidates in this top 5, its market cap is aided dramatically by investors, which may be a good indication of its success, or not.

5. Aurora Cannabis

The 5th and final cannabis stock we are going to list in this article is Aurora Cannabis. Aurora Cannabis currently has a market cap of $2.15 billion and sells stocks publicly on the NYSE under ACB. Aurora was stated to be the largest pot producer and even have a bigger international capacity than the top competitor Canopy Growth. Aurora stocks currently sell for $0.72.

Conclusion

In conclusion to this article, we hope that you as an individual now have a better overview of some popular cannabis stocks available. We hope that you can see the value in early investing and trust this list has given you some stocks to research when looking to possible add to your stock market portfolio.

CannabisNewsBreaks – technical420 Highlights Potential Acquirers, Acquisition Targets as 2020 Shapes to be a Bounce-Back Year for Cannabis M&A

A recent editorial by Anthony Varrell of technical420 reviews a slowdown in merger and acquisition (M&A) activity in the cannabis sector during the last year and its expected positive trend and bounce back in 2020 and moving forward. The article highlights three companies thought to be potential acquirers, including Canopy Growth (TSX: WEED) (NYSE: CGC), MediPharm Labs (TSX: LABS) (OTCQX: MEDIF) and Jushi Holdings (CSE: JUSH), as well as companies technical420 believes could be potential acquisition targets, including Stem Holdings (CSE: STEM) (OTCQX: STMH), Fire & Flower Holdings Corp. (TSX: FAF) (OTC: FFLWF) and WeedMD (TSX.V: WMD) (OTCQX: WDDMF). “Several high-profile acquisitions that were announced in 2019 have been terminated or are still pending. The closing of these acquisitions will be a positive trend for the sector, and we expect to see a bounce back in the cannabis M&A market in 2020 and beyond,” Varrell writes. “Once valuations start to improve, we expect to see a significant increase in the amount of M&A activity, and this is a trend that we will continue to monitor.”

NetworkNewsBreaks – technical420 Highlights Five Companies Capitalizing on Different Cannabis Industry Verticals

A recent editorial by Anthony Varrell of technical420 highlights five companies that are capitalizing on different verticals of the cannabis industry, including Aleafia Health (TSX: ALEF) (OTC: ALEAF), PharmaCielo (TSX.V: PCLO) (OTCQX: PCLOF), Namaste Technologies (TSX.V: N) (OTCQB: NXTTF), ManifestSeven, and Canopy Growth (TSX: WEED) (NYSE: CGC). “2020 is expected to be a breakout year for the cannabis industry and with primary growth drivers to be the opening of new markets, the maturing of existing markets, and the increasing number of products for purchase by recreational consumers in Canada,” Varrell writes. “During the last year, the cannabis sector was under substantial pressure and the valuations associated with these companies plummeted across the board. Although the recent trend has been to the downside, there is a subset of companies that have been executing on previously announced initiatives and that represent attractive growth opportunities. We believe that the recent pressure makes the sector look much more attractive from a valuation standpoint.”

CannabisNewsBreaks – technical420 Highlights Three Canadian LPs that Appear Well Positioned in Burgeoning Cannabis Industry Despite Pressure from Recent Earnings

According to a recent technical420 article written by Anthony Varrell, several leading Canadian cannabis companies have reported quarterly financial results during the last month, and, on average, the market has been responding negatively to the numbers. Although these companies have reported strong growth compared to prior periods, the market has reacted negatively due to numbers that have come in below expectations. The article indicates that the cannabis industry looks to be well positioned to record strong growth going forward. It further highlights three Canadian cannabis producers, including Aleafia Health (TSX: ALEF) (OTCQX: ALEAF), Canopy Growth (TSX: WEED) (NYSE: CGC) and Aurora Cannabis Inc. (TSX: ACB) (NYSE: ACB), that technical420 believes that, going forward, are well positioned to capitalize on the burgeoning global cannabis industry.

CannabisNewsBreaks – Three Canadian Licensed Producers with Price Target Downgrades

technical420 editorial published today and written by Anthony Varrell highlights details regarding three Canadian Licensed Producers (“LPs”) with price target downgrades. The cannabis sector, yesterday, recorded one of its best trading days of the year, coming after Aphria Inc. (TSX: APHA) (NYSE: APHA), a leading Canadian LP, released first quarter financial results. According to the update, one of the reasons the move caught attention is because it comes after heavy pressure on the cannabis sector. Canadian LPs such as Aphria have been some of the most impacted during this time. The article goes on to highlight some of the recent price target changes on Aphria, Canopy Growth Corp. (TSX: WEED) (NYSE: CGC) and Aurora Cannabis Inc. (TSX: ACB) (NYSE: ACB), indicating these three Canadian LPs are trading well below the average price target issued by the listed broker-dealers.
