Following a decline of 18.0% in December, the American Cannabis Operator Index more than recovered the losses with a 30.8% gain in January, ending at 101.09:
The index, which launched at the end of October with a value of 100, traded as low as 70.64 in late December after having reached a closing high of 124.16 in early November and has now rebounded 43.1% from the December 24th low:
During January, the index included 18 companies, including 14 multi-state operators (MSOs) and four focused solely on CBD extracted from industrial hemp. Several MSOs have a dual strategy that also includes selling CBD across the country, including Curaleaf Holdings (CSE: CURA) (OTC: CURLF), Green Growth Brands (CSE: GGB) (OTC: GGBXF) and 1933 Industries (CSE: TGIF) (OTC: TGIFF). Only one name managed a negative return, while six gained more than 40%:
The three best performers included Origin House (CSE: OH) (OTC: ORHOF), Planet 13 Holdings (CSE: PLTH) (OTC: PLNHF) and Charlotte’s Web (CSE: CWEB) (OTC: CWBHF), all of which rose by more than 48%, with Charlotte’s Web hitting an all-time high, while GB Sciences (OTC: GBLX) was the only stock in the index to have a negative return.
For February, the index will include 22 names, as United Cannabis (OTC: CNAB), which is focused on hemp, rejoins and multi-state operators Acreage Holdings (CSE: ACRG) (OTC: ACRGF), Cresco Labs (CSE: CL) (OTC: CRLBF), Harvest Health and Recreation (CSE: HARV) (OTC: HTHHF) and MJardin Group (CSE: MJAR) (OTC: MJARF) enter for the first time. We also removed MPX Bioceutical (CSE: MPX) (OTC: MPXEF) after its shareholders voted to approve the sale of its U.S. assets to iAnthus Capital (CSE: IAN) (OTC: ITHUF).
