While this is a clear factor, it has been incorporated into a trading tape characterized by a pretty dominant offer, which hasn’t been the type of action CURLF shareholders really want to see. In total, over the past five days, shares of the stock have dropped by roughly -25% on above average trading volume. All in all, not a particularly friendly tape, but one that may ultimately present some new opportunities. Over the past month, shares of the stock have suffered from clear selling pressure, dropping by roughly -40%. What’s more, the company has seen a growing influx of trading interest, with the stock’s recent average trading volume running 70% above its longer-run average levels.
“As we lead the way to a world where cannabis is welcomed and understood, our corporate social responsibility grows congruently with our business. We recognize the positive impact we can have on the lives of not just our employees, our customers and our shareholders, but also on the communities and the environment in which we operate our business,” said Joe Lusardi, CEO of Curaleaf. “We are thrilled to have Khadijah join our team to lead the charge.”
