Curaleaf: Strong Buy for this Cannabis Stock?

Curaleaf: Strong Buy for this Cannabis Stock?The US-based cannabis company, Curaleaf Holdings Inc cannabis stock (CNSX:CURA) gained a meager 1% on Friday, June 5, 2020, to close at CA$ 7.83. In our opinion, hemp stocks and medical marijuana stocks could soon see a surge of investors because of the sector’s untapped potential. A publication by GlobeNewswire cited a report by Data Bridge Market Research, which claimed that “Global Legal Marijuana Market is expected to reach USD 90.83 Billion at a CAGR of 20.0% Forecast by 2027”. Some of these statistics could be a motivating factor for cannabis and hemp stocks like Curaleaf holdings.

In the first three months of 2020, the Total Revenue gained 28% against Q4 2019 and 174% on a year over year basis. Even the gross margin for the present quarter of 43% was higher than the 2019 figures for the same quarter of 38%. One of the main factors for the increased revenue numbers is Curaleaf’s strategic market penetration methodology.
