Cronos Group (NASDAQ: CRON) Poised to be a Long-Term Winner

Published

on

Cronos Group

Have you noticed it? Huge things are happening in the marijuana landscape. For investors, the future looks promising in the industry, especially with Cronos Group (NASDAQ: CRON). Although the company is currently on a downward trend, still everything is pointing that the stock is not too far from getting back on an upward trajectory.

The Canadian cannabis producer had a disappointing first-quarter performance in some way, but still, it will be too early to write off the stock.

Talking about the fundamental offerings, Cronos grows as well as distributes marijuana and also makes forays into medical cannabis.

Cronos Group Inc. Price Analysis

Since March, the stock has had a downward trend; however, the last day or two has shown positive developments. In the last 24 hours, Cronos recovered by almost 0.07% going from $15.37 to $15.38. The fluctuations seem to be good news as it indicates that good days are around the corner for Cronos.

CRON price today.

In the past 2 weeks, the company has been up and down with a total of over 3.62 million shares being bought and sold for about $55.70 million. However, things change in a flash and with the stock making positive developments; it won’t take long before we see a breakthrough for Cronos group.

But Has Cronos Group Done Enough?

Just when you think Cronos couldn’t get any better for cannabis stock investors, it will prove you wrong. The company has thus far made significant developments that both in the short as well as the long-term will prove to be vital for the stock.

In all fairness, of course, the most significant boost may have come from last December and the closing of $1.8 billion equity investment from Altria in March. The tobacco company has the opportunity to acquire Cronos at some point later, and for Cronos, it provided it the capital required for expansion of production capacity as well as diversifying the product portfolio.

Also, the deal with Ginkgo Bioworks last year is a big step for the company as it helps the company produce rare cannabinoids by utilizing Ginkgo’s organism design technology.

The move boosts the company’s long-term operating margins, given the fact that alternative cannabis products have higher prices and margins than the cannabis dried flower.

Subsequently, the stock’s revenue should surge anyway. It might not have a plethora of provincial supply agreements like its competitors, but the deal with Cura Cannabis to supply 20,000 kgs of marijuana annually for five years is a massive addition. The company should be reaching several consumers as well; thanks to the partnership with MedMen, a top U.S. cannabis retailer.

Another bullish factor is that in terms of production, the company has heavily invested in capacity expansion. Up to the moment, Cronos’s building 4 facilities each 286,000 square feet that will come online soon.

It would be pretty hard to deny that the massive international efforts the firm is making will not bear fruits for Cronos. The transformative technology on their hands as well from Ginkgo alone should be game changers.

What Now for Cronos?

Yes, the stock has got some volatility, but the growth of the cannabis industry is still strong. Canada’s third-largest company reported revenue of $6.5 million for their Q1 and represented an increase of 16% from the last quarter and hence showing that still, the stock is making some progress irrespective of the recent drop in price.

It is also worth noting that from the Q1 results, the gross margin increased to 54% and has an impact on the profitability due to the small revenue base. All the recent factors indicate a bullish run for Cronos Group Inc., which has set the ground nicely for a substantial upward trend ahead.

Is Cronos Stock (TSE:CRON)(NASDAQ:CRON) A Buy?

Cronos Stock

Cronos Stock (TSE:CRON)(NASDAQ:CRON) stock fell 9.22% on January 24, marking its steepest decline so far in 2020. The stock plunge followed an important disclosure that you would only expect from a company that is trying to be straight and transparent with investors. Here’s what happened.

On January 22, after market close, Cronos made a regulatory filing detailing changes in its executive team. In that SEC filing, Cronos revealed that David Hsu and William Hilson have stepped down as its chief operating officer and chief commercial officer, respectively. Unfortunately, some investors read bad news in the executive exits and sold their shares in Cronos.

But a careful reading of the filing doesn’t seem to raise any red flags. Therefore, the big stock plunged points to investors panicking to the degree of responding to a mosquito bite with a missile.

There is no doubt that 2019 was a difficult year for cannabis stocks and Cronos Stock is no exception. But before the uncalled for reaction to Cronos’s regulatory filing, we had been at a point where sellers were starting to give way to buyers in Cronos stock. The stock has gained about 8.0% in the past one month. It had gained more than 13% year-to-date before the January 24 big selloff.
