The Canadian cannabis stocks we’ve discovered have high operational efficiencies, as demonstrated by their superior asset turnover ratios
SmallCapPower | November 29, 2018: Operational efficiency is a key aspect of any successful business, and especially so in an industry such as cannabis where superior supply chains are a critical competitive advantage. Operational efficiencies translate into higher productivity – higher revenues and margins – with your asset base. One common ratio used to measure efficiency is the asset turnover ratio, which measures how many dollars of revenue a company generates with a single dollar of assets. Companies generating higher revenues per dollar of assets have a greater probability of also generating higher returns for shareholders. Today, we’ve weeded out three Canadian cannabis stocks with notable efficiencies as demonstrated by their asset turnover ratios.
