Best Cannabis Stocks In The Canadian Market
The Canadian cannabis market and marijuana stocks have been losing ground since March 1st. As a result, new investors now have more opportunities to enter the cannabis market. These companies have expanded into the US and other markets as one of the first countries to have a legal cannabis industry. Remarkably, after numerous delays in federal legalization, the marijuana industry is still quite strong in the United States, despite the fact that marijuana stocks haven’t generated substantial returns for investors.
The development of new products is driving the cannabis industry’s expansion. Yet, things are difficult financially because of problems with the supply chain, industry consolidation, tough regulations, and inflationary pressures. A shortage of skilled workers and insurer interest in covering the market will challenge the industry’s durability. Cannabis companies’ profits were heavily impacted by rising expenses and supply chain problems in 2022, threatening profitability in 2023.
Making short-term investments in cannabis penny stocks is one strategy to profit from the market’s downward trend. Any shares of stock sold for less than $5 are referred to as penny stocks. With the well-known significant daily and monthly price volatility of these cannabis penny stocks, opportunities may exist. Some of these equities have recently posted double-digit percentage returns, which has benefited cannabis investors who are willing to participate in these high-risk/high-reward transactions. Let’s examine the two best Canadian cannabis penny stocks to watch right now.
