The dark side of marijuana stocks

Marijuana stocks are among the most fashionable investments on the TSX. With some stocks in the sector up as much as 70% year to date, they’ve been beating the market with ease. If you’d invested $1,000 in Canopy Growth three years ago, you’d have $23,000 in the bank today — and that’s not the only marijuana stock that has made investors rich. The weed sector as a whole has been beating the market and making many investors happy in the process.

CSA standard for cannabis impairment coming next year

The CSA Group is currently working on a new standard to address cannabis impairment in the workplace, which is scheduled to be released spring 2020, attendees heard at the Partners in Prevention Health and Safety Conference and Trade Show in Mississauga, Ont. on April 30.

Just over six months have passed since cannabis has been legalized in Canada, and there remains limited regulatory guidance or legislative directives for employers and safety professionals to manage the effects of the substance in the workplace, especially in safety sensitive positions. The standard will aim to bridge this knowledge gap.

Whatever happened to Tilray (NASDAQ:TLRY)?

Tilray Inc (NASDAQ:TLRY) was one of the stars of last year’s marijuana madness. During the rally kicked off by Canopy Growth Corp’s (TSX:WEED)(NYSE:CGC) $5 billion acquisition, Tilray actually briefly eclipsed Canopy itself, going on a 750% rally that sent its market cap to unprecedented levels. At the time, there was a lot of hype surrounding the company, a recent IPO that had the blessing of some high-profile Silicon Valley venture capitalists.

Which pot stocks are the cheapest relative to 2020 sales?

Last year, the marijuana industry broke down more than a dozen barriers. We witnessed an industrialized country legalize recreational pot, saw the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approve the very first cannabis-derived drug, and watched as numerous marijuana stocks uplisted from the over-the-counter exchange to either the New York Stock Exchange or Nasdaq.

But after a year of promises, 2019 and beyond will feature a new focus. With the industry blossoming under the umbrella of legalization through much of North America and Europe, it's now up to pot stocks to deliver the green. In other words, operating results actually matter now.

Why I wouldn’t Touch Village Farms (TSX:VFF)

Village Farms International (TSX:VFF)(NASDAQ:VFF) has been one of the best performing pot stocks since the beginning of the year. Equity markets have been on fire, and many marijuana companies are performing well, but Village Farms’ year-to-date 200% jump in share value dwarfs that of most of its peers.

As a result, the marijuana company has been getting an increasing amount of attention among investors trying to pounce on the growing cannabis market. Is Village Farms’ recent performance a fluke? Or is the firm a good buy at the moment?

Short sellers beware: This marijuana stock is flying high

The much-maligned Aphria Inc. (TSX:APHA)(NYSE:APHA) is notably beating the odds of late. This $2.3 billion producer and seller of medical cannabis almost got delisted from the TSX two years ago on allegations of non-compliance to listing requirements. Short selling issues also hounded the Leamington-based firm.

However, the dust has settled and Aphria remains on the big board, both in Canada and the U.S. Now that the turbulence is over, the excitement is back. Investors are taking Aphria more seriously this time. The growth potential is there given the positive developments happening in the present.
