Recommendation: Strong
GrowGeneration is one of the largest specialty organic and hydroponic gardening retail chains across the United States. GrowGeneration is focused on expanding to new markets by opening new retail centers, acquiring cannabis cultivation licenses in target states, acquiring new companies, and maintaining its positive financial growth.

In 2019, GrowGeneration is expanding into new markets and adding new product lines with the acquisition of 5 companies worth $25 million in total. GrowGeneration is aiming to increase its revenue from Cannabis cultivators by offering products and consultations as currently, 15 percent of its revenue base comes from them.

In June 2019, GrowGeneration managed to raise $12.8 million in total by issuing common stock in private placement to institutional investors at a price of $3.10 per share. In December 2019, GrowGeneration will be listed on the NASDAQ exchange.

Should you invest in GrowGeneration? Will its stock price improve in the long term? Likely.

GrowGeneration has cash and cash equivalents worth $18 million, which is enough to provide support for its operations and expansion for the next 10 to 12 months. Given their aggressive strategy of expansion by acquisition, GrowGeneration will eventually need additional financing to acquire new companies beyond 2020.

GrowGeneration’s net profit decreased slightly to $1.05 million in the third quarter of 2019 as compared to $1.06 million in the second quarter. However, they reported a net profit margin of 4.82% which ranks them among the top 5 in the home improvement retail industry and 28th in the retail industry in the US.

GrowGeneration’s cash to debt ratio in the third quarter of 2019 was 1.93 which shows that if needed they can manage debt payments for the quarter. Their current ratio of 4.2 during the last quarter of 2019 is the highest in the retail sector.

For these reasons, we think GrowGeneration, at or near its current price of $4.39 a share, is a good investment opportunity—though as earnings increase with sales and expenses reduced then an opportunity can appear.
