Major marijuana stocks lost 77% of market cap in last 12 months

Major marijuana stocks lost 77% of market cap in last 12 months

Marijuana stocks’ performance is often subject to what is happening in the cannabis industry. In the last couple of years, the cannabis industry has seen significant change and innovation both in the U.S. and internationally. 

Currently, more than half of U.S. states have legalized marijuana in some form, and the more legalization occurs, the more advancement can be had in the industry. 

However, with the rise of inflation and disturbance that have hit the Nasdaq, pushing stocks officially into bear territory, marijuana stocks also lost a lot of ground. The three primary players on average lost 77% of their market cap in the last 12 months.

Namely, Tilray Inc. (NASDAQ: TLRY), Aurora Cannabis (TSE: ACB), and Canopy Growth (NASDAQ: CGC), over the last 12 months, have lost 72.15%, 78.85%, and 84.60%, respectively.

CGC chart and analysis

Prices have been rising strongly lately, it may be a good idea to wait for a consolidation or pullback before considering an entry, with the short-term trend still remaining neutral. 

In the last month, CGC has been trading between $2.13 and $3.17, with a support line at $2.45 and a resistance line at $3.06.

Due to the fact that the cannabis industry is still in its early stages of development and is still relatively young, the price action may provide investors with strong entry opportunities in which they may remain invested in the stocks for the long term.

As most of the industry is deemed speculative, volatility in prices could be expected, which was the trend over the last 12 months.
