Below is a recap of the main news related to the cannabis industry and markets for the week of August 30, 2021.

Hexo’s $925M Acquisition Of Redecan

Hexo Corp. (TSX:HEXO) (NASDAQ:HEXO) closed its $925 million acquisition of Redecan, Canada’s largest privately-owned licensed producer.

Following the news, Cantor Fitzgerald issued a new report on Hexo.

Analyst Pablo Zuanic maintained a Neutral rating but increased the 12-month price target to CA$3.45 ($2.73) from CA$3.40 ($2.70) after tweaking pro forma estimates. 

“We will remain Neutral for now, partly on a legacy of continued dilution, but if over time, all this translates to a profitable cash generating LP (one of the largest, if not the largest), then we think the stock should start to rerate at some point,” Zuanic wrote.

According to the firm’s analysis, key potential drivers for the company going forward are:

Investors getting a better sense of the scale and prowess of the combined company on an ongoing basis. HEXO starting to report positive EBITDA in FY22. More visibility about the company’s U.S. strategy. Management clearly stating that further stock dilution is unlikely in the year ahead.

Later in the week, Hexo completed its purchase of 48North Cannabis Corp. (TSXV:NRTH) for $50 million.

TerrAscend Acquires Gage Growth In $545M All-Stock Deal

TerrAscend Corp. (CSE:TER) (OTCQX:TRSSF) and Gage Growth Corp. (CSE:GAGE) (OTCPK: GAEGF) have entered into a definitive agreement, under which TerrAscend will acquire all of the issued and outstanding subordinate voting shares of Gage for around $545 million.

Benzinga Cannabis’ content is now available in Spanish on El Planteo.

Upon completion of the transaction, the combined business will have operations in five states and Canada, including 7 cultivation and processing facilities and 23 operating dispensaries serving both medical and adult-use cannabis markets in the U.S. and Canada.

Policy

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit ruled on Monday against a petition to request that the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) reschedule cannabis in all of its forms under the Controlled Substances Acts (CSA).

The DEA Seeks To Increase Federal Production Limits For Psilocybin And Marijuana Research

The Drug Enforcement Administration is proposing a significant increase in federal limits for the production of psilocybin, psilocin and marijuana for research purposes.

In a clear proof of institutional interest for the therapeutic value of some Schedule 1 substances, the DEA is scheduled to publish a new document in the Federal Register on Thursday advocating for an increase in the aggregate production quotas for these naturally-produced substances.

The agency wants to allow for the production of 2 million grams of marijuana, or 500,000 more grams than its initial quota for this year. The DEA also wants to upscale cannabis extract production, doubling it to 500,000 grams.

Former Brooklyn Assemblywoman Tapped To Become Chair of N.Y. Cannabis Control Board

New York's state Senate confirmed Tremaine Wright (D), former Brooklyn assemblywoman, to lead the agencies that will regulate cannabis sales in New York.

Wright was confirmed as chair of the Cannabis Control Board and the Office of Cannabis Management. Wright was serving as the Director of the Office of Financial Inclusion and Empowerment in the NYS Department of Financial Services at the time of the appointment by New York Gov. Kathy Hochul.

Texas

Texas is loosening its policies regarding cannabis, starting with changes to state law allowing more eligible patients to request a prescription for medical cannabis.

In addition, a Texas court declared unconstitutional a law prohibiting the smoking of hemp.

Panama Legalizes Medical Cannabis

Panama's National Legislative Assembly approved a bill legalizing medical cannabis in a unanimous vote of 40 to zero.

Thus, the country will become the first in Central America to regulate the medicinal use of cannabis. However, the new regulations must be approved by Panamanian President Laurentino Cortizo.

The new legislation creates a regulatory framework that allows “monitored and controlled” access to medical cannabis and its derivatives.

In addition, the law creates the National Program for the Study of the Medicinal Use of Cannabis and its Derivatives to promote research and develop educational campaigns addressed to the population.

The new regulation establishes that only seven licenses for the manufacture of cannabis derivatives will be granted.

According to France 24, licensed companies will be able to export seeds, plants and derivatives. To do so, they must submit an export plan and register buyers with Panama's regulatory authorities.

Meanwhile, the law establishes that it is prohibited to sell cannabis from home or outside authorized establishments and that advertising pertaining to marijuana may only appear in scientific journals, not the media or social networks.

Growing marijuana could result in a penalty of ten to fifteen years in prison.

Merrill Lynch Relaxing Its Approach To Cannabis Businesses

Merrill executives unveiled plans for “streamlining” and adding more “flexibility” to the process of onboarding clients who own or invest in marijuana-related businesses, as part of its new initiative.

Merrill Lynch Wealth Management executives launched the Project Thunder initiative to address some of the frustrations of the firm’s financial advisors.

The program is introducing relatively small tweaks initially and will include a total of at least 24 changes over a period of eight weeks.

Top 10 Casino Stocks To Buy For 2019

Gaming companies aren’t differentiated by the table games they offer, what slot machines they have, or even what comps they give to players. If you think about it, casino games themselves are pretty similar whether you’re in Iowa or Macau. 

What differentiates gaming companies today are the resorts they build and where those resorts are located. Put a megaresort on the desolate north end of the Las Vegas Strip, and you might go bankrupt before it’s completed (see Echelon, Las Vegas Plaza, and Fontainebleau), but if you’re building a multi-billion dollar resort in Macau or Singapore, it’s almost impossible to lose money. No company has better locations than Las Vegas Sands (NYSE:LVS), which is why it’s one of the most profitable companies in gaming. Here’s where the company’s money comes from. 

Image source: Las Vegas Sands.

Where Las Vegas Sands’ cash comes from

Revenue isn’t a great way to measure a gaming company’s success, so investors should look at the cash flow coming from gaming resorts. The best measure of cash flow for a gaming company is property EBITDA, or earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization. The biggest investment a gaming company makes is building the resort itself, so once the resort is built, it’s appropriate to measure ongoing cash flow, something EBITDA does better than net income.

    FLIR Systems (NASDAQ:FLIR) was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a hold rating to a sell rating. According to Zacks, “FLIR Systems gross margins remain vulnerable to a host of factors, including product mix changes and manufacturing cost absorption. Also, high manufacturing cost absorption is likely to restrict the company’s growth. Moreover, factors like imposition of governmental controls and restrictions on export of technology remain concerns. Poor economic conditions across FLIR Systems’ key operating regions may hamper capital investment and consumer spending, thereby weighing on the company’s profitability. Moreover, the company’s lead time for licensing the orders have increased, resulting in a lengthy order acceptance period, which is likely to hurt the top line. However, it enjoys a strong top-line growth, driven by impressive performance across most of its segments. In the past six months, FLIR Systems’ shares have outperformed compared with the industry average.”

Best Blue Chip Stocks To Buy For 2019

Now that summer is upon us and the first-quarter earnings season is clearly in the rearview, many of the top firms on Wall Street are making some changes to the lists of their high-conviction stock picks for clients for 2018. Although markets have been relatively quiet for the past month, it makes sense to examine the lists and make some changes as the rest of the year could have additional volatility as the political and world landscape looks to remain unsettled.

One of the firms followed here at 24/7 Wall St. is regional boutique broker Wedbush, who over the years has built a strong reputation on stock picking, often following companies that have smaller market capitalizations than the blue chips.

The company’s Best Ideas list beat the S&P 500 in May, up 5.5%, compared to the index’s 2.2%. Year to date, Wedush’s Best Ideas list is up 17.5%, versus only 1.2% for the S&P 500.

Activision Blizzard Inc. (NASDAQ: ATVI) is still at the top of the list. Wedbush believes that the company could earn $3.00 as early as this year by optimizing King’s untapped ad opportunity and monetizing its Overwatch League. While Wedbush has modeled more modest earnings for 2018, the firm believes that Activision’s new investments have the potential to significantly expand its margins and profits for the next several years.

    In addition to supporting the growth of its parent, Noble Midstream will also assist third-party producers. One of the drivers is a partnership it formed with a private-equity-backed midstream company last year to buy the Black Diamond Gathering system in the DJ Basin. That system initially supported the production of six customers, including PDC Energy (NASDAQ:PDCE). However, the partners have gone on to expand their relationship with PDC Energy as well as recently adding a new customer into the fold, which has enhanced the system’s growth prospects.

Best Blue Chip Stocks To Buy For 2019: SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Selena Maranjian]

    It’s also smart to make good use of a 401(k) account at work, if you have one, as that also automatically withdraws preset sums from your paychecks, plowing it into retirement savings. (Each year, aim to increase the percentage of your income you contribute to your 401(k) — and to your other savings accounts, too.) Be sure to invest that money effectively as well, remembering that long-term dollars are likely to grow the fastest in stocks. Thus, consider a low-cost, broad-market index fund such as the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (NYSEMKT:SPY), Vanguard Total Stock Market ETF (NYSEMKT:VTI), and Vanguard Total World Stock ETF (NYSEMKT:VT).

    Yet when it comes to investing, reward often comes from being willing to take on risk. Over the past 10 years, investors who’ve been willing to look at smaller companies have seen much stronger returns than those who’ve stuck with the tried-and-true big names that are more familiar to them. When you look at exchange-traded funds tracking indexes composed of companies of different sizes — SPDR S&P 500 (NYSEMKT:SPY) for large companies, SPDR S&P Midcap 400 (NYSEMKT:MDY) for midsize companies, and SPDR S&P SmallCap 600 (NYSEMKT:SLY) for small companies — you can put a number on just how much better smaller stocks have done:

The idea of a universal basic income is becoming increasingly popular. Five years ago, it was definitely confined to the weird fringe. But now, it is attracting interest across the political spectrum. Silicon Valley entrepreneurs, concerned about the impact of technology on traditional models of employment, are funding pilot studies and donating to research projects. Governments are evaluating its potential to replace part of their increasingly complex, expensive and inefficient welfare systems.

And now it has been endorsed by winners of the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel, commonly referred to as the economics Nobel prize. The economists were participating in the 6th Lindau meeting on economic sciences, which ran from 22nd to 26th of June this year in the picturesque town of Lindau, Germany.
