Company: Acreage Holdings Inc.
Investment Risks: Medium/High
Investment Rewards: Medium/High
Current Price: $2.88/share
Company Background: Originally an investment firm, Acreage transitioned in 2017 to “a vertically integrated multi-state operator” according to their website. They are known for brands such as The Botanist and Live Resin Project, both of which took home honors at the Emerald Cup, the premier product competition in cannabis. In 2019, Acreage entered into an agreement with Canopy Growth Corporation, thereby tethering their futures. Acreage has a presence in Illinois and Massachusetts, two states that recently legalized recreational marijuana.
Acreage prides itself on The Botanist brand, which “provides an immersive, educational hub for people who aspire to live a balanced and socially responsible lifestyle, and are brought together by a genuine desire to learn about the versatility and life-changing power of cannabis.” They also feature Superflux, a variety of high THC marijuana strains available in flower, concentrate, and vape forms. Currently, Superflux is only available in Ohio and Illinois, though their website mentions expanding to other states. Currently, Acreage has a presence in 12 states. Acreage also has a line of medical marijuana, called Prime. According to their website, ”Prime focuses on advancing health and wellness and delivering top-quality, pesticide-free products that are designed for precise dosing and medicating.”
Pending Litigation: Here is an article blurb from August, 2019:
“A judge on Friday blocked, at least temporarily, marijuana giant Acreage Holdings from buying the Greenleaf medical marijuana dispensary in Portsmouth after another marijuana business tied to a Warwick dispensary accused Acreage of violating a no-compete contract provision.”
Philosophy of the Company: The company’s website states their vision as “We deeply believe in the transformational power that cannabis can have to heal and change the world and aim to help it achieve its full potential in helping people to lead better lives,” and their Mission “To champion and provide access to cannabis’ beneficial properties by creating the best quality products and consumer experiences.”
Performance: Since its max in early February at $8.36/share, ACRHF has plummeted to nearly ¼ of its value. And like many other marijuana stocks, late July and August were not kind to ACRHF as it depreciated almost $.60/share. Stockinvest.us gives ACRHF a negative rating, stating, ”We hold a sell evaluation for this stock. No stop-loss set.” However, Wallet Investor states “ . . .Acreage Holdings Inc stock is a good long-term (1-year) investment.”
Final Thoughts: With a current entry price point of less than $3.00/share, ACRHF is not an expensive option to get into the marijuana stock game. Their slick packaging and sophisticated appeal may also be a competitive advantage. They are a large company, and their association with Canopy likely gives them deeper pockets and stability, which may come in handy during another COVID-19 pandemic turndown.
