You’re reading a copy of this week’s issue of the weekly New Cannabis Ventures, which we’ve been running since October 2015. The newsletter includes unique information to help our readers stay ahead of the curve. as links to the most important of the week. News.
Two weeks ago, we suggested that the global cannabis stock index, which was then down 43% in 2022, was likely to fall before the end of the year. It has dropped even further (15.4% later) and is now 52% lower this year. The bullish factors we mentioned at the time remain intact and we are more interested in these lower prices than we were two weeks ago. Despite this, we are clearly in a bearish stock market in general, and our optimism does not help to choose the best time to enter or expand positions in the cannabis sector. The future looks very bright in contrast to price action lately, and we want to discuss how investors should be prepared for future changes.
We expect great market growth in several states. Illinois is currently increasing its dispensary count by more than 100%. Two weeks ago, we mentioned the eastern states in general. Today we want to refine this observation and mention New York and New Jersey, both in transition to adult use, at the top of the list. Virginia may also be included, and there are other states such as Maryland, Ohio, and Pennsylvania that may also legalize adult use. The big conclusion is that investors need to be prepared for strong growth from the top line.
Beyond that, there are other factors that investors should understand. First, raising capital could be a challenge. New operations typically consume cash, and not all cannabis companies are in a strong position right now. Investors should be able to avoid capital increases, as they can now substantially lower the issuer’s share price.
One last area that investors should consider is market positioning. There are some multi-state operators that are already in many states and their ability to expand into new states right now is in question in our opinion. At the same time, there are MSOs with a more concentrated market presence. Smaller MSOs come to mind, such as Ascend Wellness, Jushi and TerrAscend, as well as Planet 13 Holdings. Each of them has new markets, but is also in a position to expand into new markets. California operators also have opportunities for expansion.
We remain uncertain about the timing of the price improvement for cannabis companies, however, as we said two weeks ago: current valuations seem too low. We expect prices to rise as the fundamentals stabilize and improve in the future.
