LP Pure-Play Pot Stock Index Performance

The rally earlier this week in LP stocks was stoked largely by short-term speculative investor interests via the Reddit forum WallStreetBets but the extent of the gains has led to stretched valuations resulting in the major pull-back today.

The constituent declines are as follows:

  1. Tilray (TLRY): -49.7% to $32.16/share
  2. Organigram (OGI): -38.8% to $3.67/share
  3. Aphria (APHA): -35.8% to $16.88/share
  4. Hexo (HEXO): -24.5% to $7.76/share
  5. Aurora (ACB): -23.5% to $14.47/share
  6. Canopy (CGC): -22.1% to $40.65/share
  7. Cronos (CRON): -21.9% to $12.15/share
  8. Valens (VLNCF): -14.5% to $1.56/share

Rubicon (ROMJF) built on its 10.4% advance on Wednesday with an 8.4% advance on Thursday to $3.00/share.

Change In the munKNEE LP Pure-Play Pot Stock Sub-Index

Neptune Wellness has just acquired a 51% interest in Sprout Foods, an organic plant-based baby food/toddler snack company, in its transformation into a consumer packaged goods company. This transformation now makes Neptune ineligible for inclusion in the munKNEE LP Pure-Play Pot Stock Sub-Index as one of the criteria for inclusion requires that the constituents generate 100% of their revenue directly from the sale of cannabis products. As such, Neptune was removed from the Index yesterday.

The unhappy fact is that most of the time, including the recent adventure described, chemically induced euphoria are rather short lived, both in the financial sector and in real life. Investors need to understand that uncomfortable reality.
