Analysts' Thoughts

Investors have been very bullish on the marijuana sector but has found itself stuck in a tight sideways trend over the last four months. After going public last July, the stock shot sharply higher before finding a natural trading range it has maintained since early December. The company has yet to turn a profit, but that is the same situation as the rest of the industry at this point in time. Revenue has been improving, and this quarter’s loss is expected to be smaller than either of the first two quarters Tilray has released. The outlook for marijuana growers is still very unknown, but with Canada fully legalizing recreational marijuana on the national level, and an ever-increasing number of U.S. states passaging legislation on medical and recreational marijuana use, the growth potential is phenomenal. Marijuana has the potential to disrupt several of the biggest sectors and analysts see huge upside potential in marijuana stocks. Analysts have an average price target of $125.25 on TLRY which suggests the stock has as much as 73% upside. Marijuana stocks can be volatile, so investors could see a big move following the quarterly report and may want to have an exit strategy in place in the event the report shows any signs of weakness.
