Aurora Cannabis is Picking Up Traction Again
October 3, 2018 article by “Motley Fool”
The Aurora Cannabis (TSX: ACB) stock is overhyped after the Coca-Cola talks and could be due for a pullback, if a deal isn’t made official in the coming weeks.
Over the past year, Aurora Cannabis has taken a backseat to many other Canadian marijuana producers that have skyrocketed to new highs, while Aurora investors fled the scene to pursue other compelling opportunities in the space. The weakness was mainly due to the shareholder-dilutive actions conducted by management when it decided to go on an acquisition spree at around the same time the marijuana market had hit a peak.
I slammed Aurora’s management team for its aggressive roll-up strategy and urged investors to short Aurora and going short Canopy Growth this spring. The trade paid off immediately after Constellation Brands announced its second helping of Canopy Growth stock, as Aurora shares continued to retreat.
With “talks” of joint ventures with beverage companies in the air, Aurora stock is picking up traction once again. It’s important to note, however, that the discussions going on behind the scenes are just that. No dotted line has been signed yet, and until it is, Aurora shares are at risk of surrendering the substantial gains that have been realized over the last few weeks.
Right now, speculation over potential partnerships is driving up cannabis stocks large and small. Many investors are wondering who’s going to get the next Constellation-like deal in the bag. This speculative theme is where the puck is now, but as an investor, you need to figure out where the puck is going next, so you can better position yourself for a big goal!
I believe the puck is heading in the Aurora Cannabis direction next. The real opportunity to be had with Aurora lies within the Cannabis Derivative (CBD) sub-market that’s been overlooked by most investors and speculators who may have gotten high off their holdings.
When investors speak of cannabis, getting high is usually what comes to mind first. The cannabinoid that gets you high is Delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). But while the average investor is looking for commoditized pot producers that get users high, Aurora has doubled down on a market that probably won’t get much media attention until the THC high has a chance to wear off.
Cannabidiol (CBD) offers many of the same therapeutic Properties (for easing inflammation, anxiety, etc.) as THC, but lacks the psychoactive effects that cause one to become stoned. Thus, CBD is a more practical therapeutic compound that can be used regularly in the lives of consumers who desire to remain productive as they treat their ailments with CBD oil or CBD-dominant strains of cannabis.
The high-inducing THC is primarily found within cannabis buds (or flower), and while there’s still CBD in bud, hemp has a much higher concentration of CBD relative to THC. So, it’s not all about the bud; hemp has a very compelling future as well. The CBD market is expecter to grow to US$2.1 billion by 2020 according to an estimation from the Hemp Business Journal.
Of all players in the CBD market, Aurora is a standout player with its Hempco Food and Fiber acquisition, which appears to have fallen under the radar after Aurora chased down CanniMed Therapeutics.
As more attention is drawn on the medicinal applications of CBD, Aurora could realistically pop like a coiled spring. Many generic pharmaceutical firms and consumer packaged-goods companies are going to want a piece of the CBD market, so I think it’s just a matter of time before CBD becomes the next “hot topic” in the cannabis industry.
Unless you’re keen on obtaining a front-row seat to the CBD market, I’d wait for a meaningful dip before backing up the truck on Aurora shares. The stock is overhyped after the Coca-Cola talks and could be due for a pullback if a deal isn’t made official in the coming weeks.
A renowned Japanese Billionaire is sounding the alarm on what could be a trillion-dollar technology and his prediction will give you goosebumps.
In fact, he's now preparing a $100B "war chest" to invest entirely in this "terrifying" new technology, which could spell huge profits for investors.
And if he's right, early investors in this super-trend could become rich. Because this potentially $19 TRILLION market - - - is still being ignored by most ordinary investors.
It's fun to watch and take part in the Wild West ride of Aurora Cannabis!
Gold & Silver in the Near-term, the Dow, S&P 500 & Nasdaq
Gold & Silver in the Near-term
Martin Armstrong (Marty) expects a Panic Cycle during the month of October and we certainly started off with Panic this week.
However, we saw some push to the upside into the long-standing resistance of $1,210 in Gold.
The Question is: As we head into a new week might Gold get off its butt and start to go higher? - - - The Answer is: Not yet.
Gold must go first below $982.50 and then go above $982.50 before it goes to $5,000 or as high as $20,000.
We continue to believe those predictions provided by Marty aided by his super Artificial Intelligent computer Socrates, will come to fruition.
Until we get that $982.50 turnaround signal, we are continuing not to Day Trade neither Gold nor Silver for ourselves or those Investors on whose behalf we Day Trade.
The Dow, S&P 500 & Nasdaq
The draconian fear of rising rates being bad for stocks, was flushed through into Asia last Friday in heavy trading.
European shares opened weak and just kept going Down. The Italian budget remained a key focal point as BTP’s (Italian government paper) was sold off late in the day.
The Great British Pound (GBP) had a solid day on rumours BREXIT talks are moving favourably towards a ‘soft’ deal.
The US employment report was weaker than expected and the US market appeared to be concentrating on the Treasury market and the seemingly unstoppable rise in yields.
US cash stocks opened positive and it was not long before attention was drawn towards the Bond Market. The afternoons ISM (Institute of Manufacturing) number accelerated the bond weakness to 4bp (basis points) at the Close.
The Dow September 28, 2018 monthly Close of 26,458,31 indicated that we might not be consolidating any longer.
This week past was the next Real Target in the Dow but, we did not exceed the High of the last week in September. In fact, with political-economic uncertainty globally on every front on average it was a Down week.
On Thursday and Friday, the Dow, S&P 500 and Nasdaq were down bigtime, and I lost money Day Trading for myself and the Clients on whose behalf I Day Trade. Oh well, we always expect to get some losses.
As we move forward, Worldwide demand for US Dollars continues to increase and finding its way into US shares and the US indices.
Consequently, the future looks bright and we expect to make up the losses we incurred this last week big time in the coming week
Points to Ponder
1) October 4, 2018 – Draining the Swamp & Why the New York Times is Trying to Overthrow Trump
Is Donald Trump the LAST Democratically elected President in the United States? Are we are going to see the US elections rigged to produce the result that the corruptive big corporations who dictate the news and seem to and maintain the Swamp needs to maintain their hold on the United States?
I am afraid that this is laying the seeds for World War III.
2) October 5, 2018 – Forget New Zealand – You must Give Your Password & Pin to your Phone So Customs Can Search it When You Land.
I have never been in New Zealand and it was on my “Bucket List” to visit the Country.
I am in Business and need my Cell phone and my Laptop and cannot do business without them.
Yes, George Orwell warned us about this in 1984.
Obviously, New Zealand is now off my Bucket List and unless they change their asinine law, I will not go to that Country for business nor a vacation.
