Breaking Down Weed Stocks Financials | Midas Letter RAW ft FAF

This week a host of cannabis companies report their financial results for their last quarter’s end. Trulieve Cannabis Corp (CNSX:TRUL, OTCMKTS:TCNNF), Curaleaf Holdings Inc (CNSX:CURA, OTCMKTS:CURLF), Green Thumb Industries Inc (CNSX:GTII, OTCMKTS:GTBIF), and Canopy Growth Corp (TSE:WEED, NASDAQ:CGC) were all among the reporters. For the most part, earnings have been strong, and some are setting record revenue growth. This week on Midas Letter RAW, we examine the cannabis industry and break down some things to look out for on weed stocks financial statements.

It is important to perform thorough due diligence when looking at reported earnings, as there are accounting tricks companies can use to bolster their financial press releases. For example, biological assets appreciation or warrant derivative liabilities depreciation should not be confused with net income.

Weed Stocks have been pulling back in price generally since the peak in February. However, recently, we see some of the premier cannabis companies now bounce off of their lows.

The US cannabis market is certainly the place to look if you are investing in the green rush as Canadian companies are struggling by comparison.

This week, we have an exclusive interview with Fire & Flower Holdings Corp (TSE:FAF, OTCMKTS:FFLWF) CEO Trevor Fencott.

Fire & Flower has seen a bit of consolidation since we last chatted but continues to grow its corporate-owned stores, memberships, partnerships, and revenues. In June, FAF reported its fourth straight quarter of positive adjusted EBITDA with a 91% YoY quarterly revenue growth. In addition, FAF now has partnerships with American Acres & BDSA, which is driving its entry into the US. But, don’t forget about FAF’s partnerships with Alimentation Couche-Tard also put FAF’s products in hundreds of Circle K gas stations across Canada.

Watch the full show where we also discuss macroeconomic themes like PPI, CPI, and runaway inflation, as well as technical analysis of bitcoin, copper, and our favourite stocks.
