In the past year, the marijuana industry has been a monster in terms of growth. Many investors have decided to jump right in to this new industry with profits hitting all time highs. It is not out of the ordinary to see some marijuana stocks that have doubled or even tripled in value over the past 12 months.

With an industry that is expected to grow from around $5 billion to a whopping $17 billion by 2021, why not jump right in? Those numbers put the industry at a 300% legal sales growth with opportunities unexplored including new states legalizing the drug, organic growth within legal states, and the opportunity to move the black market into legal channels. The opportunity for marijuana is incredible. Here’s four stocks that have grown a substantial 10% in the last week.

1.Cara Therapeutics (+12.8%)
A market favorite for its large, quick, gains, Cara Therapeutics (NASDAQ: CARA) had unfortunately lost more than half of its market value in a two-week timeframe. Last week, Cara unexpectedly found its place and grew almost 13%.

One major piece of news seems to be the cause here. On July 12th Cara announced it data for its phase 1 trial of oral CR845, a treatment for pain and pruritus (itching) in patients with chronic kidney disease who are undergoing hemodialysis. All of the data was very promising.

2. Aphria (13.2%)
One of the Canadian giants in the industry, Aphria (NASDAQOTH: APHQF) had an exceptional week, growing over 13%. Many speculate that this is due to its fourth-quarter and full-year results for the fiscal year of 2017. The company did report a loss however in its fourth-quarter report but the $5.5 million is all accounted for in the companies new plans for expansion and growth. The largest strong spot of their report was a 25% decrease in all-in cash costs from 2016 to $1.31 a gram. As demand rises and costs fall, the company is expected to continue this growth trend.

3. Aurora Cannabis (+16.1%)
The largest gainer of the week among marijuana stocks with a 16% gain, was Aurora Cannabis (NASDAQOTH: ACBFF), yet another Canadian medical-cannabis producer. Aurora happens to be one of Aphria’s largest competitors. Aurora recently announced that it is in the process of developing what they call ‘the Aurora Sky project’. The project is essentially an 800,000 square foot facility that the company claims will be the most advanced and automated in the world. It is scheduled to be completed early next year.

One of the main reasons why Aurora skyrocket is an announcement that it would move from the TSX Venture Exchange to the much larger Toronto Stock Exchange. This move comes from a significant boost in the companies market cap over the past year, and could be just the jump investors need to get their feet wet.

Recreational marijuana has been an especially hot topic in the United States after Nevada became the fifth state to have a legal program on July 1st.

Companies levered to the Nevada marijuana market have benefited greatly from this and we want to highlight 2 companies levered to this opportunity.

• mCig (MCIG) issued a shareholder update last week and reported that its Grow Contractors division will shatter its previous record revenue numbers after it took on cultivation management contracts and delivered on its plan for cultivation and production ownership. Grow Contractors has a proven track record of success in Nevada and the boom in the state has led to an influx of requests for work. We are favorable on the company’s diverse operating structure, attractive debt-free balance sheet, its improving fundamentals, and its growth prospects, especially in Nevada and California.

• Terra Tech (TRTC) is one of the best-known marijuana stocks and the company has benefited the combination of its leverage to the Nevada market and its investor awareness. While we are favorable on the company’s brand recognition, we are cautious with the shares due to Terra Tech’s financial structure which is dilutive in nature. The company has tried to raise capital through private placements but has not been successful. Terra Tech has only been able to raise capital by issuing and selling stock and this is not a shareholder friendly way to raise money. We would become more favorable on the firm if it sold off one of its subsidiaries (Edible Gardens) to support its cannabis related capital needs.

 

 

Pursuant to an agreement between MAPH and mCig Inc. (MCIG), we were hired for a period beginning 7/1/2017 – 12/1/2017 to publicly disseminate information about (MCIG), including on the Website and other media including Facebook and Twitter. We are being paid 3 million common restricted shares of mCig, Inc. by mCig, Inc.  We may buy or sell additional shares of (MCIG) in the open market at any time, including before, during or after the Website and Information, provide public dissemination of favorable Information.

The Height of Marijuana Investing

In 2016, sales of marijuana and marijuana related products surged to almost $7 billion. If that seems like a lot, it’s only just beginning. At this point, almost 30 states have some sort of legalization or decriminalization which shouldn’t be surprising regardless of your views. The continuation of this process is inevitable. As states see not only the progress but the profit from taxes that states such as California are making, all states will push for legalization of the green plant.

In 2016, sales of marijuana and marijuana related products surged to almost $7 billion. If that seems like a lot, it’s only just beginning. At this point, almost 30 states have some sort of legalization or decriminalization which shouldn’t be surprising regardless of your views. The continuation of this process is inevitable. As states see not only the progress but the profit from taxes that states such as California are making, all states will push for legalization of the green plant.

In 2014, marijuana sales in the U.S. topped out at around $2.7 billion, with half of that coming from California’s medical marijuana industry. Today, California alone is expected to hit $5 billion in its medical marijuana market once regulations are all ironed out. For scale, the Los Angeles market is alone worth more than $1 billion dollars (the same revenue as Colorado pulled in last year).

By the year 2024, marijuana sales are projected to reach almost $21 billion dollars and some estimations suggesting a much higher number for the whole of the marijuana industry in the U.S. of $50 billion by 2026.

From all these numbers, it is clear that we are still in the very early stages of legalization. The volume of startups involved in the industry is reaching an all time high with most of the companies springing up in the last 5 years.

The market for marijuana does not just include selling weed in a sketchy storefront. The market includes pharmaceuticals made by some of the largest pharma companies in the world, a range of companies devoted solely to edible forms of the plant, satellite companies dedicated to the transportation of money for dispensaries, security companies and every other possibility. The options are endless, and the market will continue to grow as long as there is a place for it.

With the continuation of legalization and decriminalization across the country, the push for this industry is now inevitable.

When it comes to marijuana stocks, we think investors are rarely presented with the opportunity to get in on the ground on floor of an industry poised to see incremental revenue growth for decades to come. The last time investors had this opportunity was during the tech boom, which created countless millionaires.

We expect to see this happen again as the legal cannabis industry continues to be the fastest growing industry in the world and it is not even in the first inning of what will be a multi-decade growth cycle.

Marijuana Program Grows In Vermont

Vermont expanded its medical marijuana program after Governor Phillip Scott signed legislation that adds Crohn’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) to the list of qualifying conditions for the state’s legal market.

While it would have been great if Governor Scott signed the recreational cannabis legislation earlier this year, we are favorable on this development. Analysts have said that Vermont’s legal recreational and medical cannabis market could surpass $100 million.

Let’s give the example that someone has had a marijuana business for a few years and decides they are ready to sell. The immediate response should at that point be, how much is the company worth? This has been a large issue in the marijunana market as mergers and acquisitions are on the rise.

Valuations can fluctuate rapidly given location, cash flow, local/state regulations, and how well the company has maintained business records.

There are many factors that need to be taken into account to assess proper value which means that each situation is undeniably different. The three main tools that have been longstanding financial estimators are seen as the: companies assets, income and market values of similar businesses. Those three factors are usually combined along with a standard valuation formula called Earnings before Interest, Taxes, Deduction and Amortization (EBITDA).

The difficulty with cannabis businesses however lies in the fact that there are such a high number of variables. Therefore it has to be a combination of many methods to determine the value of a business as opposed to the traditional business that could use just one.

One rule of thumb with marijuana businesses states that the valuation of MJ companies can be often worth around six to eight times their EBITDA. But once again, that method should not be utilized solely as there are so many changing variables.

In the state of California, San Diego-based Greenlife Business assists MJ company owners who are looking to sell. The CEO of Greenlife, Andrew Matthews states that in California because there is still no state regulatory system, the largest value is in companies that have already been awarded local permits. Matthews stated “I’ve never seen a city-licensed dispensary (in California) sell for under $1 million, regardless of the numbers. It could be losing money every day, and people will buy it for millions.”

When evaluating a company for its purchase, buyers and sellers need to consider all the factors involved before making an educated offer.

Marijuana-Stocks-Nevada cannabis

The market in Nevada for recreational marijuana has made it so price hikes are common and as a result are hurting the state’s medical MJ industry.

The price of medical marijuana in some parts of Nevada “has almost doubled”, according to KTNV TV station. This raises concerns about unaffordable medical cannabis which may force desperate patients to turn to the black market.

An MMJ patient named Emily Wilson says that she knows several patients who have stopped relying on dispensaries and have turned to the black market because of higher medicinal cannabis prices. The general manager of Las Vegas dispensary ‘ReLeaf’ admits to the fact that she has seen a “decrease” in MMJ business according to KTNV TV.

Several Nevada dispensaries are attempting to curb this by incentivizing customers to stay away from the black market with benefits such as letting them go to the front of retail lines as well as making sure products that patients are reliant on are always well stocked.

According to research done by a wholesale marijuana pricing data company named Cannabis Benchmarks, the average price in Nevada for a pound of wholesale marijuana went up almost $400 in the first week of July (right after the recreational market was up and running).

The price hikes are said to be the result of a shortage of inventory caused by the unexpected high volume and popularity of Nevada’s early start rec program. To get the adult-use program off the ground by July 1, retailers had to sell their remaining product from their MMJ inventory in order to get ready for the new regulations.

All of this leads customers to a difficult choice between money and legality. If patients choose to use the black market, it almost defeats the purpose of legalization. Should the government have regulation on the prices of marijuana, or should legalization occur quicker so natural competition can bring prices to an equilibrium?

Vermont expanded its medical marijuana program after Governor Phillip Scott signed legislation that adds Crohn’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) to the list of qualifying conditions for the state’s legal market.

While it would have been great if Governor Scott signed the recreational cannabis legislation earlier this year, we are favorable on this development. Analysts have said that Vermont’s legal recreational and medical cannabis market could surpass $100 million.

Legislation to Significantly Expand the State’s Cannabis Market

Vermont has a small medical cannabis program and this development should significantly expand the size of the market. The state only has four medical cannabis dispensary licenses which serve less than 5,000 registered patients.

Current law allows patients to only do one or the other, not both. The legislation also allows dispensaries to operate as a for-profit entity (currently required to operate as a non-profit).

If the legislation was approved, beginning in July 2018, it would legalize the possession of up to an ounce of weed, two mature plants and four immature plants.

Governor Rejects Recreational Marijuana Legislation

Earlier this year, both the Vermont House and Senate passed legislation to legalize recreational cannabis. Although the legislation was vetoed by the governor, he indicated his support if certain conditions were addressed.

According to local news outlets, Governor Scott said, “I’m not philosophically opposed to ending the prohibition on marijuana.”

The legislation would have worked to satisfy some but not all the conditions. The legislation would have created a study commission to look at other state models from a taxation and regulation standpoint. This study would be used to make recommendations for Vermont’s adult use market and would provide guidance regarding other state markets.

A Development to Watch

While we are favorable on this development, it will take time for Vermont’s market to grow to a size where it is attractive from an investment standpoint. We continue to view the Vermont market as attractive from a geographic standpoint due to the proximity to Massachusetts and New York, however, we prefer other markets.

There are only a few companies focused on the Vermont market and we will continue to monitor how the state’s cannabis market advances from here.
