One stock that has been launching back to the upside in the cannabis patch since mid-December is Hexo Corp (OTCMKTS:HYYDF). We have documented the bull case here ad nauseam in recent weeks, and there’s no point in rehashing all of that. To add further color to the story, the company just announced the results of its annual general meeting of shareholders held on January 16, 2019.

According to the release, “All items put forth at the meeting were approved, including the appointment of MNP LLP as auditor of the Company for the ensuing year, and the re-election of Nathalie Bourque, Vincent Chiara, Jason Ewart, Adam Miron, Dr. Michael Munzar and Sébastien St-Louis as directors of the Company, all with a majority of the votes cast, to hold office until the next annual meeting of shareholders or until their successors are elected or appointed.”

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.
