The Canadian marijuana stocks we’ve dug up have recently made new highs following the December 2018 selloff
SmallCapPower | February 14, 2019: The cannabis market went on a bull run in August 2018, following Constellation Brands’ (NYSE:STZ) $5B investment in Canopy Growth Corporation (TSX:WEED). As a result, many cannabis companies reached all-time highs on October 15, 2018. After the cannabis market peak, and the broader stock market sell-off in December, which was fueled by trade wars, European politics, and concerns over continued interest rate hikes, returns have slowed. Nevertheless, some cannabis stocks have been smoking hot and have reached new highs. Today, we have sifted through and identified three Canadian marijuana stocks that have been growing like weeds.
