Financing: Strong

Risks: High

The risks of investing in any cannabis company are very high given the immaturity of the market and all the aggressive competitors. The risk of investing in XXII are somewhat higher given lack of revenue in their cannabis and hemp business arm, presence in the cigarette industry which is always seen as negative, and overall poor cash flow.

Recommendation: Strong

22nd Century Group is a biotechnology company trying to lower nicotine levels in tobacco plants and cannabinoids in hemp and cannabis plants through genetic engineering, gene-editing, and plant breeding. 

They have nicotine products with 95% less nicotine than conventional cigarettes as one of their products. This may seem risky given the regulatory environment around smoking but they are working with the FDA to decrease the addictive nature of these products and may secure FDA authorization for VLN (their low nicotine products).  Mainly though, they try to increase their value using IP (patents etc) with over 200 issued and pending patents in plant-based applications. 

XXII Tobacco Alternatives

For all these reasons, we give them a Strong rating for 2021. If they can continue to release promising IP and press releases, we think the stock price should increase for the rest of 2021.

XXII Investment Opportunity

They just raised $40 million through sales of common stocks and this should keep them well financed for the next 2-3 years. They have partnerships with Anandia Labs, Aurora Cannabis, CannaMetrix, KeyGene, Needle Rock Farms, and Panacea all to improve value along the plant cultivation process.

The Aurora partnership is especially attractive given the distribution of any successful patents. 

Their P/S, EV/Revenue, and P/B are all a bit too high now but if they continue to drop, this stock could be quite a deal. Q1 2021 they had almost $7 million in sales (but $5 million in losses). Total assets are almost $60 million with total liabilities at $7 million. They are also being added to the Russell 2000 index!
