Expectations are mixed for the cannabis industry in 2020. While some experts believe that legal action on Capitol Hill will push pot stocks higher, others believe that we’ll see a wave of bankruptcies for the sector’s smaller, cash-poor companies.
Many cannabis stocks like Canopy Growth Corp (CGC), once believed to be best-of-breed, are still sitting more than 40% off highs made in 2018. Once beloved Aurora Cannabis Inc. (ACB) is also down 79% from 2018 highs. It’s enough to give you the chills.
However, it’s not all bad news for pot stocks. There a handful of cannabis stocks that are reaching new 3-month highs and have the technical strength to continue their bullish moves.
See these strong cannabis stocks and MarketClub’s long-term outlook.
