Permalink Report to webmaster

The COVID-19 pandemic has proven a boon to U.S. marijuana producer Curaleaf Holdings Inc., as sales jump and many states say that cannabis is an essential service, an analyst wrote in a note to clients Wednesday.

Curaleaf stock CURLF, -10.50% , CURA, -12.36% which trades over the counter in the U.S., rose 2.7% in Wednesday trading. Shares have gained 44% in the past five days, as the Cannabis ETF THCX, +7.14% rose 28%.

In its earnings call late Tuesday, the Wakefield, Mass., pot company reported that the majority of its 54 stores are operational, avoiding delivery and offering on-premising filling of cannabis orders. Curaleaf highlighted a roughly 20% boost in sales, which lines up with other data Stifel GMP analyst Robert Fagan was examining that suggests a 30% boost in growth as a result of the COVID-19 crisis.

Fagan has a buy on the name with a C$22 target price, for its Canadian Securities Exchange-listed shares.
