Curaleaf Stock Skyrockets
Curaleaf Holdings Inc (OTCMKTS:CURLF), a major player in the U.S. marijuana market, has struck gold with its latest acquisition, sending CURLF stock surging. Curaleaf stock, when all was said and done, was up nearly 20% in the span of a few days following the company’s purchase of Grassroots for $875.0 million in a cash-and-stock deal.

This may very well propel Curaleaf Holdings to the top of the marijuana business size-wise as it spreads across a massive portion of the United States. Considering just how frothy the U.S. marijuana market is, being among the largest available stocks right now makes CURLF stock a prime target for investment. In fact, according to the company’s press release following the acquisition, Curaleaf is now the largest marijuana company in the world by revenue.
And it’s not hard to see how Curaleaf Holdings is generating all that revenue; it will be active in 19 U.S. states and grow the number of its national dispensaries 68 nationwide once it fully integrates Grassroots. It will also increase the company’s pro-forma 2019 revenue to $256.0 million. This comes on the heels of the company’s announced intentions to look into the European market in the near future.
All things considered, the Grassroots acquisition makes Curaleaf an undeniable powerhouse in the pot industry.
CURLF stock, as a result, is in a very enviable position. Curaleaf Holdings Inc is now among the largest marijuana companies in the U.S. and continuing to expand. It’s also one of the few publicly traded pot companies that has access to huge swaths of the U.S. marijuana market.
As such, CURLF stock has the potential to be one of the best performers as legalization continues to spread.
On top of that, there are still events in the company’s future that could help spur growth, like a move to the Nasdaq or New York Stock Exchange. This company is poised for success down the line and I’m very bullish on Curaleaf stock.
This also couldn’t come at a better time. With the recent shakeup at Canopy Growth Corp (NYSE:CGC), the marijuana industry may soon be in search of a new leader.
You see, Canopy Growth just jettisoned its CEO and co-founder Bruce Linton. Now I’m not one to usually kick up too much of a fuss if a single individual is axed, even one as important (and in Linton’s case, recognized) as the CEO. But there’s more at play here than a simple reshuffling of the top brass at Canopy Growth: Liton’s departure reveals a whole new direction for CGC stock overall.
The company is going to be focusing more on profit over growth, something that a large stakeholder, Constellation Brands, Inc. (NYSE:STZ), has been pushing ever since it bought huge chunks of Canopy Growth Corp.
The flip side to that is a company can often end up stunting its future potential if it goes too strongly in on profit too early in its lifespan. That may be happening to Canopy Growth right now. The marijuana industry is still so young that I believe it is foolish to prioritize profit over growth; that’s a good way to end up with a decent or good stock rather than a truly outstanding one.
Which is where Curaleaf Holdings Inc comes in. With its acquisition of Grassroots and promise to expand across the European market, this is a company still very much keen on growing. As such, bigger buys like the Grassroots acquisition are likely in the company’s future. And as we say, if these acquisitions are sound and properly handled, there is a very thirsty market for them.
So CURFL stock may now be the de facto new leader in high-growth, high-powered marijuana stocks, a position formerly occupied by CGC stock.
The benefits are twofold: huge potential for massive increases in share value, while the size give the company the stability needed to weather downturns. It’s a winning combination that has seen CGC investors who have been following my column and newsletter, Marijuana Millionaires, more than double their money.
I believe that in the near future, especially with pot being so close to legalization in the U.S. (we’re talking more than likely within five years) CURLF stock is in a prime position to double, triple, even quadruple an investors money.
The marijuana industry is now hungrily awaiting for the U.S. pot market to go fully legal.
Until that time, a few companies like Curaleaf Holdings Inc provide investors the ability to get in on the game early and see strong yields now, with the promise of exponential growth come total legalization. It’s a long-game mentality, but one that is likely to yield big payouts. CURLF stock, therefore, is one of the better ways to play that long game while also seeing strong gains in the present.
