Good afternoon and welcome to another episode of Investorideas.com "Potcast" featuring cannabis news, stocks to watch as well as insights from thought leaders and experts.
In today’s podcast we look at a few of last week’s, this week’s and the upcoming week’s public company financial reports, how the market reacted as well a few public company announcements.
Last Week’s Reports:
From last week’s financial reports one of the larger LP names was Aphria Inc. (TSX: APHA) (NASDAQ: APHA), a leading global cannabis company, who reported its financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended May 31, 2020 on July 29th.
The market reacted with a strong rise on July 28th with the stock price reaching $6 then dropping down below $5 the day the financial results were released.
"At Aphria, we are setting ourselves apart from the rest of the cannabis industry," said Irwin D. Simon, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We have generated some of the strongest sales growth, we have one of the strongest balance sheets and cash positions, compelling consumer brands and a well-diversified global business. We are grateful for the dedication of our employees for whom our commitment to protect their safety is unwavering and remains a founding principle of our company. Our strong finish to fiscal year 2020 demonstrates that this was a transformative year for Aphria, as our net revenue increased 129% from fiscal year 2019. We continue to focus on capturing strong market share in Canada by executing upon our strategic plan and positioning Aphria as a leader in category innovation. With exciting new product categories and line extensions launching in the very near future, we believe our award-winning adult-use portfolio remains unmatched in the industry. By building on this foundation, we remain focused on the highest return opportunities for growth and long-term value creation."
Looking more at the ancillary cannabis market, The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company (NYSE SMG), one of the world’s largest marketers of branded consumer lawn and garden products, released its third quarter financial results on Wednesday, July 29, 2020, beating many analyst predictions which gave the stock price a big run, rising nearly $12 the day earnings were released.
This Week’s Reports:
Cronos Group Inc. (NASDAQ: CRON) (TSX: CRON), announced its 2020 second quarter business results on August 6th this week. Similar to Aphria the stock had a long run leading up to the financial reports then dropped over a $1 the day of earnings.
“In the second quarter of 2020, we continued our progress despite unprecedented shifts in our industry and the global economy. We officially entered the Israeli medical cannabis market, with Cronos Israel commencing the sale of PEACE NATURALS™ branded dried flower products to medical patients. During these extraordinary times, it is very encouraging to see that we are making progress against our strategy across our global footprint," said Mike Gorenstein, CEO of Cronos Group.
"While following safety guidelines, our employees are finding new and creative ways to keep our production, manufacturing, and R&D facilities operating, and we are bringing new products and brands to markets across the globe. Cronos Group was founded on the mission to improve people’s lives by unlocking the full potential of cannabis and our Company is very proud to be at the forefront of providing safe access and high-quality products to patients and consumers around the world.”

GW, like Aphria and Cronos also took a nearly $15 plunge after the release of their financial results, even after beating most estimates.
“We were pleased with the strength of U.S. Epidiolex sales in the second quarter in spite of the COVID-19 pandemic. Further, the recent approval and imminent launch of Epidiolex for the treatment of seizures associated with TSC provides a meaningful new opportunity to accelerate momentum through the second half of 2020 and beyond,” stated Justin Gover, GW’s CEO. “We also continue to be excited about the potential of our product pipeline, in particular nabiximols, for which we recently outlined our accelerated US development strategy in the treatment of spasticity in patients with MS and other conditions.
