Analysts Say InterCure Stock Could Double Again
With the S&P 500 and Nasdaq both in bear-market territory, interest rates rising, inflation soaring, and fears of a recession, it’s not difficult to find stocks that have been unfairly kicked off a cliff.
After the stock market finally bottoms, many of the discounted stocks will rebound the quickest. That’s why it’s a great time for investors to find beaten-down stocks of pot companies that have been doing everything right. One of the best cannabis companies right now is InterCure Ltd (NASDAQ:INCR), which does business as Canndoc.
The company’s financials show why INCR stock is an excellent marijuana stock poised for tremendous growth.
Despite terrible market conditions, InterCure Ltd reported record 2021 financial results. That momentum has continued in 2022. InterCure Ltd’s first-quarter results included record revenue, high net income growth, and the company’s seventh consecutive quarter of positive cash flow.
InterCure Ltd’s management predicts that the good times will continue throughout 2022.
This should be great news for InterCure stock investors, but the stock market is being routed and INCR stock is being dragged down with it. As of this writing, shares of InterCure Ltd are down by:
- 24% over the last month
- 14% over the last three months
- 20% over the last six months
- 12% year-to-date
There’s no way to sugarcoat those numbers. On the other hand, Wall Street analysts continue to be bullish on InterCure stock. They’ve provided a 12-month share-price target range of $7.00 to $13.00 per share of InterCure Ltd, suggesting potential upside in the range of 22% to 126%.
