Canadian cannabis stocks are ripe for a rebound, Canaccord Genuity says

Mar 13 00:03 2018 Print This Article

After a humdrum February, Canada’s cannabis sector is likely to rebound over the near term, says analyst Matt Bottomley of Canaccord Genuity, who says upcoming news in the sector should allow for further market expansion.

So far, 2018 has seen both ups and downs for Canada’s pot stocks. January saw about 1.9 billion of capital raised and, by mid-month, a number of cannabis stocks had hit all-time highs. Yet, there’s been a decided drag every since, effectively erasing much of those gains made at the start of the year.

Other factors have added more uncertainty to the industry, too, such as recent news from Canada’s Senate that passing of Bill C-46 could be further delayed, as a study of the proposed law concerning drug-impaired driving was suspended for another two months. While a late-August date had been recently floated, now some senators are suggesting that the end of 2018 might be a more realistic timeline for recreational legalization.
