February is going to be a big month for the marijuana industry. With Canopy Growth Corp (TSX:WEED)(NYSE:CGC) expected to release earnings on February 14 and Aurora Cannabis Inc set to do the same on February 11, there’s a lot of news to keep up with. But there’s more than just earnings to look out for. Between Aphria Inc’s (TSX:APHA)(NYSE:APHA) hostile takeover drama and a new round of acquisition mania, there’s enough going on in this industry to keep investors’ hands full for 28 days. The following are just three marijuana stocks worth watching in the busy weeks ahead.
Canopy Growth Corp (TSX:WEED)(NYSE:CGC)
Despite having recently been eclipsed by Aurora on revenue, Canopy is still the #1 marijuana stock by market cap. Its most recent earnings report was widely regarded as a disappointment, with 33% revenue growth and a $330 million loss. On February 14, Canopy is expected to release earnings that cover the period ended December 31. These will show whether revenues from legal cannabis were enough to counteract this company’s slowing growth and mounting losses.
CannTrust Holdings (TSX:TRST)
CannTrust Holdings is another pot stock worth watching in February. CannTrust stood out in 2018 for its steady operating profits when few marijuana companies were able to achieve the same. Whereas other cannabis companies pursued growth at great cost, CannTrust kept things lean and mean. The big question is which strategy will win out in the end. We may get a hint on that front this month, as the company should be releasing an earnings report for the quarter ended December 31 in the next few weeks (based on the date of its previous report).
