The House Judiciary Committee passed the Marijuana Opportunity Reinvestment and Expungement Act of 2019 (MORE Act) on November 20. This bodes very well for the pot sector, as the proposed move would legalize the use of marijuana federally.
And Canopy Growth Corp (NYSE:CGC), currently priced at an attractive level, would benefit greatly!
We are seeing rising legal marijuana sales across the U.S., and the positive trend is forecast to continue. Pot growers are expanding their infrastructure and driving capacity higher, which bodes well in anticipation of the strong growth expected for cannabis products.
Why CGC Stock’s an Intriguing Risk/Reward Play
Canopy Growth is based in Canada, but the vertically integrated grower and seller operates in over 12 countries and five continents. In fact, it has over five million square feet of licensed globally/commercial-scale good manufacturing practice (GMP) manufacturing space.
In the lucrative U.S. pot market, Canopy Growth is in the process of completing its previously announced deal to buy Acreage Holdings Inc (OTCMKTS:ACRGF, CNSX:ACRG.U). Acreage Holdings holds 88 dispensary licenses in 17 states and 24 growing/processing licenses in 16 states.
On the chart, Canopy Growth stock’s recent recovery around $20.00 is positive as the stock looks to break higher at trendline resistance, with a potential move toward the 200-day moving average at the mid-$30.00 level.
