Constellation Brands is upping its bet on the cannabis industry, announcing an additional $4 billion stake in Canopy Growth on Wednesday.
The maker of Corona and Modelo took a 9.9 percent stake in the Canadian cannabis company in Oct. 2017, which included the option for future investments, giving Constellation a first toehold in an industry the brewer said it expects to soon be legalized across the U.S.
With this latest investment and the execution of some warrants, Constellation says its stake will become 38 percent of Canopy. Additionally, Constellation will receive 139.7 million in warrants for up to $5 billion in additional funding, which can be exercised over the next three years. If utilized, Constellation could raise its total stake in Canopy to more than 50 percent.
“Over the past year, we’ve come to better understand the cannabis market, the tremendous growth opportunity it presents, and Canopy’s market-leading capabilities in this space,” Constellation Brands CEO Rob Sands said in a statement.

(Nasdaq: FB) will report earnings after the bell, but it’s likely that analysts are more interested in the company’s ongoing response to a data scandal that rocked investor sentiment and spurred privacy fears during the first quarter.

Instead, they should listen to Money Morning Chief Investment Strategist Keith Fitz-Gerald, who offered his insight to Fox Business Network earlier this week. Here’s what Keith had to say.

General Electric Co. (NYSE: GE) is under pressure to fire its auditor of 109 years, KPMG (for perspective, GE began its longtime relationship with KPMG a year after the first Model-T was built). Shareholder rights firms Glass-Lewis and Institutional Shareholder Services are spearheading the change and will push for adjustments during the firm’s annual shareholder meeting.
