Press & News
Many of the finest stocks to purchase come with a high price tag. This reality is barely surprising: Companies with exciting development potential customers will normally draw in a lot of attention, and as investors fill up on shares of these companies, their stock prices increase appropriately.
Charlotte’s Web Holdings
Charlotte’s Web provides cannabidiol (CBD)- derived items such as gummies and oils, and the company stands as one of the leading gamers in this market. Charlotte’s Web continues to expand its footprint in this market, too. The company’s items can now be discovered in more than 10,000 shops across the U.S., and that number is set to increase soon: Charlotte’s Web just recently announced it would obtain Abacus Health, which provides over-the-counter CBD items in more than 12,000 shops, in an all-stock deal valued at $69 million.

This transaction, which is expected to close sometime this year, will substantially increase Charlotte’s Web’s footprint in its market and diversify the company’s item offering. Still, detractors might point to a substantial barrier that might prevent Charlotte’s Web’s growth: Last year, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) famously informed customers about the risks of CBD, warning that the substance can cause liver damage.
The FDA has also released warning letters to numerous companies making unverified claims about the health benefits of their CBD-based items. These developments did impact Charlotte’s Web’s monetary efficiency; CEO Deanie Elsner noted that “in November, the FDA released several warning letters to specific CBD business which triggered our clients to draw back across all channels, negatively impacting the sector and our sales.”
There is at least one other way in which the FDA is showing to be a thorn in Charlotte’s Web’s side. The business argues that its growth is being hindered by the absence of regulative direction regarding CBD items. But even with these challenges, I think investors would do well to bet on Charlotte’s Web. Not just will the current acquisition of Abacus Health increase its revenue and revenues, however in the long run, the company is ready to benefit when the FDA lastly does release these regulatory instructions.
To price estimate Elsner once again: “The chance for Charlotte’s Web will be both the expansion of our circulation breadth throughout nationwide retailers, in addition to the expansion of our portfolio depth within each seller. The driver for this significant revenue inflection point would be the FDA setting standards for dietary supplements.”
In my view, these elements make Charlotte’s Web’s stock a buy, particularly considering that its shares are trading for just under $7 each at the moment.
Planet 13 Holdings
Planet 13 Holdings is a marijuana dispensary operator headquartered in Las Vegas. This isn’t just any weed shop: Planet 13 has managed to differentiate itself from its operators and sculpt out a specific niche for itself with its flagship area in Las Vegas, which it calls a “cannabis entertainment complex.” Put simply, the focus of this specific dispensary is on the experience of the clients as much as on the cannabis products the company offers.
World 13′ “Warehouse store” boasts a restaurant and a cafe, among other things. And the shop gain from one substantial advantage– place. World 13’s superstore lies near the Las Vegas Strip, which indicates it is practically guaranteed to draw in a considerable number of visitors year-round– unless, obviously, there is a pandemic forcing individuals to practice social distancing. Thanks to its unique business model, Planet 13 Holdings carried out well last year.
The company had more than a million visitors during the year, representing about 9%of cannabis sales in a competitive market in Nevada. Last year, while lots of marijuana companies were hectic shedding much of their worth, Planet 13 Holdings’ stock soared by practically 80%. Sure, the company isn’t doing nearly too this year, however that’s hardly unexpected provided the existing market conditions. Looking forward, however, World 13 Holdings could be a huge winner in the long run.
The business has strategies to expand its presence and open 8 more cannabis warehouse stores in a number of prominent U.S. cities over the next five years. Planet 13 Holdings is still in the early phases of its growth, and as the business expands its existence, its income and incomes might follow suit. That’s why financiers would do well to purchase shares of the marijuana company at a measly $1.25 apiece.

Aurora Marijuana( NYSE: ACB) lastly made the move that investors have anxiously awaited for a long time. The Canadian cannabis producer revealed last week that it participated in a contract to purchase Reliva, which boasts one of the top-selling CBD brands in the U.S. market.
Financiers cheered the news that Aurora will quickly have the ability to jump into the big U.S. CBD market. Several of the company’s leading competitors, consisting of Canopy Growth and Cronos Group, currently have an existence in the U.S.
Aurora mentioned that Reliva is “lucrative today” and will supply the business with a leading hemp CBD brand that’s presently sold in more than 20,000 retail areas in the U.S. Don’t believe Aurora Marijuana’ profitability spin.

Reliva is independently held, so there aren’t public files readily available that provide details on the company’s monetary efficiency. Aurora Marijuana interim CEO Michael Vocalist shared some fascinating information in an interview with MarketWatch last week.
First, Reliva’s annual revenue remains in the ballpark of $13 million to $14 million. This represents just a portion of Aurora’s yearly sales. Of course, the U.S. CBD market is still just in its early stages. Reliva could effectively end up being a considerable growth driver for Aurora.
The more eyebrow-raising thing that Vocalist stated is that Reliva isn’t rewarding on a GAAP basis, the accounting standard by which U.S. companies report their financial results. Instead, the little CBD business has just created profits on an adjusted basis.
Often, adjusted revenues provide financiers a more precise image of how well a business is carrying out.
The bottom line is that we actually don’t know how Reliva’s real bottom line looks. What we do know is that Aurora’s news release revealing the acquisition specified that Reliva was profitable (with no caveats or clarifications) which it took a follow-up interview for financiers to learn the rest of the story.
It’s not surprising that Aurora would refer to an adjusted monetary number as being lucrative. The company’s executives regularly do it when they go over Aurora’s financial future.
For instance, Vocalist talked about the business’s cost-cutting moves in his remarks throughout Aurora’s Q3 teleconference earlier this month He specified that these moves will “fuel success” for Aurora. Anytime Aurora’s management group discusses profitability, they’re in fact suggesting changed EBITDA profitability.
If you’re not acquainted with EBITDA, the term represents incomes before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization. Getting positive EBITDA is a good idea, particularly for Aurora, which published unfavorable adjusted EBITDA of 50.9 million in Canadian dollars in the 3rd quarter. Positive adjusted EBITDA is categorically not the very same thing as profitability.
Aurora believes that it will be able to provide positive adjusted EBITDA by the very first quarter of fiscal 2021, which ends on Sept. 30,2020 And while Aurora has benefited from tax recoveries in the existing fiscal year, at some point paying taxes will negatively affect its monetary outcomes.
Note also that the word “adjusted” is still being utilized. Unlike the scenario with Reliva, though, we have a pretty good concept of which modifications Aurora can take with its EBITDA figure because the regards to its monetary covenants for its financial obligation facility spell them out.
Beyond the spin
The good news for Aurora is that it seems making strong progress toward its goal of producing favorable adjusted EBITDA by the end of September. The company’s acquisition of Reliva must also be favorable over the long term as the U.S. CBD market grows.
However, there are still significant obstacles for Aurora.
Most significantly, Aurora could have to go to the well yet again to raise additional cash through another dilution-causing stock offering or attempt to take on even more financial obligation. And what Aurora calls profitability isn’t true profitability.

Sitting at the intersection of wellness and technology, Theragun, the pioneer in percussive massage therapy, announced earlier this week it is rebranding to Therabody. Therabody will continue to embody Theragun’s original mission and commitment of leading the tech wellness space by creating cutting-edge products using proprietary technology to provide natural wellness solutions for everyone. In addition to the Therabody rebrand, the company is launching a proprietary USDA certified organic CBD line, TheraOne this summer as well as Theragun’s 4th generation percussive massage devices with the introduction of the brand’s new proprietary motor using QuietForce Technology and Smart Percussive Therapy, seamlessly integrating with the updated Therabody app.
The new product launches and integrations has led to a natural progression for the company to evolve into its new name. “Since the day I invented Theragun to help me with the pain caused by a motorcycle accident, our mission as a company has been to help others with their muscle tension and soreness, whether it’s for an injury, an ailment or working out,” said Dr. Jason Wersland, Founder and Chief Wellness Officer of Therabody. “We want our customers to know under certain circumstances there are alternatives to taking pain medication and Theragun has been one of them. Now, with the launch of TheraOne, we are able to offer our customers another natural wellness solution that is not only effective on its own, but also complements our Theragun Percussive Therapy devices. I’m thrilled with this milestone of launching Therabody and how it enables us to help more people. We are just getting started as we continue to develop products backed by science that can further help people feel better, naturally.”
Therabody’s goal is to create products and services that educate and empower consumers to be in control of their own health. While the brand will continue to champion accessibility and inclusivity through the products, services, and research that Therabody has to offer, it will also provide more solutions that are both natural and effective, further helping the community. Theragun and TheraOne are the two current divisions under the new Therabody with plans to develop and expand into additional sectors in the future.
As far as rebranding during a pandemic, they did a face a few obstacles and even had to postpone several of their launches. “Our original launch date was just as COVID-19 began to hit the US hard. Given the timing, and our genuine commitment to health and wellness, we made the difficult decision to postpone the launch of our new products,” shared CEO Benjamin Nazarian. “However, we’ve had the opportunity during this difficult time to donate Theragun to hospitals around the globe and see the impact Theragun has been having on our frontline workers. We’ve also focused on giving back to those in need, donating 250,000 meals to Feeding America.”
Nazarian and the team felt it was the right time to announce the rebranding this past week as more people have become more accustomed to life at home. Coronavirus has also influenced Therabody to go back tot heir roots. “Due to the change in the retail environment, we have emphasized our e-commerce channel, which is how we started as a company. We are excited to launch our new product line and share the next chapter in our story with our community as the stay at home policies are slowly starting to come to an end across the country,” Nazarian continued. TheraOne is slated to launch in summer 2020. With more than two years of dedicated research and development prior to its launch, the TheraOne portfolio will include five new proprietary full- spectrum CBD products that are all-natural and toxin free. The five new products were also formulated using patent-pending Biosorb™ technology to maximize the absorption of all the natural benefits the plant has to offer.
