There is still momentum in Medical Marijuana Inc (OTCMKTS: MJNA) after a recent rally. In our previous update in February on the company, we had anticipated that the stock is a bounce back play and that proved to be an accurate call.
Share Price Analysis
Our most recent update on MJNA, we noted that the current momentum in the stock should continue into the near term in the face of a bullish cannabis market. We further acknowledged that an upside action should continue to be likely given that the underlying fundamentals have turned bullish.
However, we cautioned investors to watch out for the stock if it fails to take out the $0.10 resistance level. Our belief was that such a failure would result in the stock trading sideways. Also, we advised that the stock would only turn bullish if it established support above $0.10. In the meantime, we anticipated the stock to trade above the $0.06 which it achieved on May 25.
True to our prediction, the stock was trading at $0.064, at the time of writing. This is to say that the stock is up 6.67% since our last article just three days ago!
In addition to the impressive Q1 2019 financials which we cited in our last article as the main driver of the upside action in the market, there are new developments which should inject more confidence in the stock. To be sure, the company now has the official nod from Bulgarian authorities to sell cannabidiol (CBD) products derived from hemp.
The EU is a very important market for MJNA and establishing a foothold in Bulgaria should help them launch their products in the bloc with ease.
Commenting on the development, Blake Schroeder, CEO of Kannaway, MJNA’s subsidiary, said, “As the EU continues to navigate its stance on CBD, we are proud to continue paving the way for the acceptance of CBD in Bulgaria just as we have in many other countries around the world. With this authorization, we hope that we can establish our company as pioneers in Bulgaria’s CBD industry and leaders in CBD education throughout Europe.”
Is MJNA undervalued?
As such, there should be sustained positive trajectory in the stock movement in the near-term as the market continues to find the correct footing to the stock. However, chances of the share price achieving higher price levels are high if the market realizes that the stock is actually undervalued.
In particular, Medical Marijuana just recorded breathtaking increase in revenues as well as profits. For most of MJNA’s rivals, their reported revenue growth ranges from 25% to 284%. For MJNA, the revenue growth was 92%, which puts it at the same level as most of the peers. Also, the companies report gross profit margins which are in the same range.
In light of this analysis, one cannot help but notice that MJNA is quite undervalued relative to rivals in the cannabis industry. Particularly, if one considers the gross profit margin and the revenue growth, the ratio of enterprise value to forward revenue should be way beyond 3.2x. If the company manages to get the ratio to 10x, there is a higher likelihood of the share price climbing past $0.21 for every share.
What Does Medical Marijuana Do?
Medical Marijuana prides itself as a company of firsts. The business has a global portfolio of hemp-derived CBD brands. It also conducts clinical research for CBD-based products and development of botanical drugs.
Like earlier noted, the company just received the official thumbs up to operate in Bulgaria via Kannaway, a subsidiary. With the authorization, Kannaway can import and sell its products in the country as well as exporting to authorized markets. Previously, we noted that the company is expanding its retail density in North America, its primary market through securing deals which will see the company’s subsidiaries operate 100 new retail stores.
Launching new products
Last week, on May 15, another MJNA subsidiary, Dixie Botanicals launched a CBD-based Isolate Tincture. The new product contains a cocktail of wellness substances like medium triglycerides (MCT) oil, CBD, and a natural orange flavor. In addition, HempMeds, another subsidiary, will exhibit a new product at the Sixth Annual Cannabis World Congress & Wellness Expo going down between May 30 and June 1 in New York. As such, investors should expect MJNA to continue surprising the market with record revenues going forward.
There are two key points that investor should note from the analysis. First, it is clear that MJNA is undervalued relative to its peers in the industry. As such, this implies that there is more potential for the stock to register higher values. Further, the current momentum triggered by the impressive financials should be able to propel the share price in near-term gains.

Forget APHA and ACB, Buy GTBIF and TCNNF
There are a lot of misconceptions going on when it comes to US legalization. Many investors are buying Aphria (APHA) and Aurora Cannabis (ACB) hoping to bank on what’s happening in the US. However, they are Canadian Licensed Producers and have no business in the US. Investors are buying them because they trade on the major exchanges, but that is the wrong move. The correct move is to buy the US multi-state operators like Green Thumb Industries (GTBIF) and Trulieve Cannabis (TCNNF).
