The marijuana stock market this month has seen quite some ups and downs. While mostly the sentiment from investors has been quite positive and bullish, there is the occasional volatile hiccup throughout the market. It seems as though the end of this month is presenting an interesting case for the future of cannabis stocks as new legislation and the shifting public perception of the industry both change.
One of the common themes for growth seems to be that most of it is occurring at the level of those who grow cannabis rather than other tiers of the industry. This means that the growers should continue to be watched by those looking to find value in the marijuana stock market.
The Green Organic Dutchman (TGODF) (TGOD) is one of the largest growers of marijuana currently working in the Canadian cannabis landscape. The company recently released their year-end financial and operational results for the period ending on December 31st, 2018.
One of the interesting aspects of the results shows that the company ended with $263 million in free and restricted cash. This amount should help them to continue fueling growth in their facilities as well as expansion into the international market. Having this much free cash in the marijuana industry seems to be a luxury needed by such a capital intensive project. In order to begin growing marijuana, there is a large amount of upfront capital needed to pay for everything from the buildings all the way to the labor to produce the substance.
Additionally, The Green Organic Dutchman stated that they have completed their acquisition of HemPoland for around $18 million. This should help to push them further into the international market on cannabis which has seen so much positivity in the past few months. The company also completed the largest ever Canadian cannabis IPO, which ended up raising upwards of $130 million including over-allotment.
The goal is for The Green Organic Dutchman to finish their construction of their Hamilton and Valleyfield sites where they can then work on producing even more marijuana. If they can continue to compete with some of the largest growers in the industry, there’s no telling just how far The Green Organic Dutchman could go. All in all, they remain an interesting company to keep a close eye on as we traverse the future of the cannabis market.
Innovative Industrial Properties (NYSE:IIPR) is in no way considered to be a traditional pot stock. With this in mind, they do offer investors an alternative way to invest in the cannabis market. The company operates as an REIT or Real Estate Investment Trust, which simply means that they purchase facilities and then lease them out to growers.
The company has shown a solid track record of producing consistent results which have helped to bring in a large amount of investors. Year to date they have performed over 70%, gaining 25% in February alone. As they continue to work on finding and building out new facilities, it seems as though Innovative Industrial Properties should be a solid watch for the coming months.
