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 CWBHF shareholders really want to see. In total, over the past five days, shares of the stock have dropped by roughly -14% 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 -16%.
According to its release, “Mr. Panter, who will be overseeing the Company’s brand new 137,000 sq. ft. manufacturing and distribution facility which includes Production, Extraction, Quality Engineering, Environmental Health and Safety, Supply Planning, Process and Facility Engineering, Contract Manufacturing, Continuous Improvement, and Customer Fulfillment Operations, will report directly to Charlotte’s Web’s Chief Executive Officer Deanie Elsner.”
