Aurora Cannabis’ outperforms its marijuana competitors, sees 3rd-straight monthly gain

marijuana stocks
From Tomi Kilgore: Shares of Aurora Cannabis Inc. ACB, +1.70% hiked up 1.1% in active morning trade Friday, putting them on track to outperform the broader cannabis sector by posting a third-straight monthly gain. The stock was up 18.0% in March, after rising 6.6% in February and 42.9% in January, for a year-to-date gain of 79.9%. Meanwhile, the ETFMG Alternative Harvest ETF MJ, +0.44% was up 0.3% Friday, but has lost 2.5% this month and gained 45.0% this year. In comparison, the S&P 500 SPX, +0.33% has edged up 1.5% this month. Aurora's stock rally in March comes after the company said earlier in the month that it hired hedge-fund manager Nelson Peltz as an adviser and Cowen designated the company as its "top pick." On Thursday, the U.S. House Financial Services Committee cleared the Secure and Fair Enforcement (SAFE) Banking Act, which would provide a safe harbor for banks working with the legal cannabis industry, to go to the House floor.

marijuana stocks
From Steve Goldstein: The House Financial Services Committee easily cleared a bill to provide a safe harbor for banks that work with the legal cannabis industry. The 45-15 vote allows the Secure and Fair Enforcement (SAFE) Banking Act to go to the House floor. Despite the clearance and strong chances for approval in the House of Representatives, the bill's prospects don't look as good in the Republican-controlled Senate.

Legal marijuana shortages persist in Canada

cannabis stocks
From Bill Alpert: Legal cannabis shortages were still a problem in Canada in early 2019, several months after the country began recreational sales to adults, says a report this morning by broker Cowen. A survey of five provinces' online weed availability in January shows that nearly half of all items remained out-of-stock on marijuana e-commerce sites. But in the relatively-populous Ontario, supplies were better, with 61% of listed products actually in-stock. In New Brunswick and Newfoundland & Labrador, however, out-of-stock rates increased.
