The Pull Back in Hexo Corp (OTCMKTS:HYYDF) Should be On the Radar

SHARE

As we have noted in other updates, many stocks in the cannabis-related space have been pulling back in the past week following official news of legalization in Canada, and this certainly includes Hexo Corp (OTCMKTS:HYYDF). This remains one of our favorite stories in the space following its strategic partnership with Molson-Coors earlier this fall. The company has continued to develop new catalysts, which should help to put it in focus on this dip as an interesting opportunity.

As a case in point, the company just announced that its products will be available in Quebec via the Société québécoise du cannabis, in Ontario online, and in British Columbia online and in store. According to its release, “HEXO has also delivered valuable training materials for front-line retail cannabis employees. Today, the adult-use Canadian market will gain access to HEXO’s product lines, including dried flower, oils, decarboxylated (or pre-activated) powder, and pre-rolled cones.”

Hexo Corp (OTCMKTS:HYYDF) trumpets itself as a company that, together with its subsidiaries, produces and distributes medical marijuana products. The company is headquartered in Gatineau, Canada, and, as noted above, just changed its corporate name from “The Hydropothecary Corporation” to “HEXO Corp.” effective August 29, 2018.

HEXO creates and distributes innovative, easy-to-use and easy-to-understand products to serve the Canadian cannabis market. One of the country’s lowest-cost producers, HEXO is rapidly increasing its production capacity in the lead up to the adult-use cannabis market.

The Company currently operates with over 310,000 sq. ft. of production capacity with construction on another 1,000,000 sq. ft. expansion set to be complete by year-end. HEXO will serve the adult-use market under the HEXO brand, while continuing to serve its medical cannabis clients through the well-known Hydropothecary brand.
