Why Weed Stocks are NOT the Next GameStop
Weed stocks have been rocketing in value this February, before crashing on Thursday. Reddit and the infamous /r/WallStreetBets forum got behind certain Canadian-based cannabis companies this last week (Canopy Growth Corp NASDAQ: CGC TSE: WEED and Aphria Inc NASDAQ: APHA TSE: APHA most notably) spurring 100% plus gains. Many investors are now worried that the large runup and crash has now burst a bubble like GameStop Corp. NYSE: GME before it.
