If there’s been one thing for certain, it has been that marijuana stocks and the cannabis industry have seen significant growth over the last 12-18 months. With the boost from Canada to legitimize this as an industry of scale, a number of producers – both large and small – are leveraging early opportunities to take full advantage of a very young industry.
The biggest proponent that we’ve seen recently has been the strong pipeline of mergers, acquisitions, and strategic ventures that are happening right now; and we aren’t talking small deals either.
*UPDATE* What has been announced by Next Green Wave Holdings (OTC: NXGWF) (CSE: NGW) this week could set the stage for a momentous month especially considering the size and scope of this latest multi-million dollar acquisition! Case and point, on Tuesday, March 12, Next Green Wave Holdings (OTC: NXGWF) (CSE: NGW) saw its highest volume trading day since trading publicly in the United States!
But what’s more important to take note of is that this “record-setting day” and near record-setting day in Canada wasn’t actually a full day. For the majority of Tuesday’s session, NXGWF and NGW were halted pending the news that we now know. It wasn’t until around 1:45 PM EST that Next Green Wave Holdings (OTC: NXGWF) (CSE: NGW) began trading. If you thought you’ve read some big news about marijuana stocks in the past, consider this: The Next Green Wave Holdings (OTC: NXGWF) (CSE: NGW) announcement raised so many eyebrows within roughly half of a day that it literally set volume records for the stock AND saw a close just a few pennies shy of its high of the day.
