Emerging evidence that the international ambitions of Canopy Growth Corp. (TSX:WEED) are progressing faster than expected has Canaccord Genuity analyst Neil Maruoka raising his target price on the stock, though the analyst is still not recommending investors buy the stock at current levels.

Maruoka says ahead of the company’s third quarter results he has reassessed Canopy’s international opportunities and come to the conclusion that Canadian companies have an unprecedented chance to dominate on the world stage and that Canopy is particularly well-positioned to be “a dominant global player”.

“Never before have we witnessed burgeoning international markets with essentially no competition from US industry (given currently restrictive federal legislation),” Maruoka says. “As other countries seek to establish durable and stable cannabis infrastructure, we believe that Canadian companies are poised to take a leadership role through the export of both product and production know-how.”
