A relative newcomer in the cannabis patch that has started to rip to the upside in recent days is Trulieve Cannabis Corp (OTCMKTS:TCNNF). Shares just vaulted above the 50-day simple moving average last week on a big jump in volume. One reason why is surely the company’s announcement that it is opening the doors on its newest location Monday, the dispensary a first for St. John’s County and the company’s 24th in Florida.
According to the release, “Presently, Trulieve operates 23 other dispensaries throughout the state of Florida, including locations in Jacksonville and Palm Coast. As part of the company’s mission to ensure safe, reliable access for patients statewide, Trulieve plans to continue opening stores statewide as the patient registry and demand grows.”

Traders will note 44% tacked on to share pricing for the company in the past month. Furthermore, the company has seen a growing influx of trading interest, with the stock’s recent average trading volume running 60% beyond what we have been seeing over the larger time frame.
It pays to take note of this fact with a float in play that’s very limited — of 9.2M shares. Traders should not overlook this combination, as ramping trading activity can overwhelm available supply in a stock with this type of small float, leading to an upward burst in prices.
