Nothing travels in a straight line in the stock market, not even Aphria Inc (OTCMKTS:APHQF). But high return on investment and market dominant positioning in growth sectors don’t fall very far. Once you know that’s what you’re dealing with, a straight line higher is the worst thing to see because it doesn’t offer any new opportunities. APHQF is building a market-dominant position with a strong balance sheet and triple-digit topline growth. Now we are seeing differentiation in product offering.
