Index Performance

The criteria for being included in the Index is that the stock is consistently trading for a minimum of US$1/share and generates 100% of its revenue directly from the sale of cannabis products.

Federal marijuana legalization in the U.S. is required for Canadian Licensed Producer (LPs) companies to be able to do business in the country and as such the Canadian pot companies cheered the final election results when the Georgia runoff for the final two Senate seats went to the Democrats.

The Canadian Licensed Producer (LPs) Category went up 24.5% in the first week of January, 2021 with all 10 stocks within the category advancing, in descending order, as follows:

  1. Tilray (TLRY): +36.9% to $11.31/share
  2. Cronos (CRON): +30.5% to $9.06/share
  3. Hexo (HEXO): +30.4% to $4.80/share
  4. Valens (VLNCF): +29.2% to $1.68/share
  5. Organigram (OGI): +27.8% to $1.70/share
  6. Aphria (APHA): +23.8% to $8.57/share
  7. Canopy (CGC): +22.4% to $30.17/share
  8. Aurora (ACB): +19.1% to $9.90/share
  9. Neptune (NEPT): +17.9% to $1.84/share
  10. Rubicon (ROMJF): +0.4% to $2.80/share

The U.SMulti-State Operator (MSOs) Category went up 22.1% the first week of 2021 with 18 of the 20 constituents advancing, 1 having N/C in price and 1 declining marginally (-4.3%), as follows:
