Is Marijuana Stock KushCo Holdings a Buy?

The best and worst performing of the four largest ones (by market cap), Cronos and Aurora Cannabis, respectively, are shown in the chart below.

Investor interest in marijuana stocks soared last year, thanks largely to several huge events, including cannabis becoming legal for recreational use in California (January) and Canada (October).

We’re going to examine KushCo Holdings(NASDAQOTH:KSHB) — which provides packaging solutions and other ancillary products and services to the legal cannabis industry — to see whether its stock is a buy.

Stock performance: The short and longer term

One of the first things a potential investor in KushCo probably wants to know is how the stock has performed over the short and longer terms, including how it’s stacked up against other cannabis stocks.

A one-year loser

KushCo stock declined 18.6% over the one-year period through Friday, Jan. 18. By comparison, the S&P 500 (including dividends) edged down 2.7%.

The stocks of the Canadian marijuana growers are a mixed bag over this same period. The best and worst performing of the four largest ones (by market cap), Cronos and Aurora Cannabis, respectively, are shown in the chart below. (Tilray is actually the best performer of the larger players, but it’s only been traded in the U.S. since July.) Shares of ancillary cannabis companies Innovative Industrial Properties(NYSE:IIPR) and EnWave have performed wonderfully and solidly, respectively. Innovative Industrial Properties (IIP) is a San Diego-based, cannabis-focused real estate investment trust that’s profitable and pays a dividend yielding 2.6%; EnWave is a Canadian company that launched its dehydration technology into the cannabis industry last year.

A winner since its IPO three years ago

Since its initial public offering in early January 2016, KushCo stock has surged 171% — more than four times the S&P 500’s 40.9% return. Aurora Cannabis has rocketed 1,370% higher over this period, while EnWave has gained 90.2%. (However, EnWave only became a “cannabis stock” last year.) Cronos and IIP aren’t shown because they have not traded in the U.S. (not traded, period, for IIP) for this entire period.

KushCo’s business

KushCo Holdings, which is based in California, was founded in 2010 by Nick Kovacevich, the company’s CEO and chairman of the board, and Dallas Imbimbo, who serves on the board. The company started life as Kush Bottles and changed its name last year to reflect its expansion beyond its packaging roots. It’s very close to a pure play, with only its acquired creative-design business having clients outside the cannabis realm. In short, the company’s aim is to be a one-stop shop for customers.

KushCo has sales and distribution facilities across the U.S. and Canada, and opened an office in China last fall.

KushCo’s businesses include:

  • Kush Supply: The largest distributor in the U.S. of vaporizer products, packaging, supplies, and accessories to cannabis growers, processors, extractors, manufacturers, and retailers.
  • Kush Energy: Provider of pure hydrocarbon gases and solvents to the cannabis sector. These products are used to produce cannabis extracts, such as hemp-derived cannabidiol (CBD) oils. So this business should benefit from the December passage of the Farm Bill, which legalized hemp across the U.S. effective Jan. 1, 2019. (CBD is a nonpsychoactive chemical found in the cannabis plant that has been linked to various wellness benefits.)
  • The Hybrid Creative: A creative design agency providing services for cannabis and noncannabis brands.
  • Koleto: The company’s research and development arm.

KushCo’s leadership

As previously noted, Kovacevich leads the company. It’s generally a plus to have a founder running the business, since these folks know their companies intimately, and often have much skin in the game. Studies suggest that founder-led companies outperform in the stock market.

Kovacevich owned 11,035,000 KushCo shares, valued at about $59.9 million based on the closing price of $5.43 per share, as of his most recently reported transaction on Jan. 8. (This was a sale at prices ranging from $5.98 to $6.15 per share for a total of $1.21 million.) Kovacevich has a 13.8% stake in the company, with Imbimbo not far behind at about 13%.

KushCo’s financial performance

Like many in the sector, KushCo has revenue that’s been increasing rapidly, while its losses on both an operational and a net basis have been growing. The company is rapidly scaling up its business and investing to fuel long-term growth.

KSHB Revenue (TTM) Chart

Data by YCharts.

KushCo’s gross and operating margins have declined rather sharply since late 2017. Investors shouldn’t be overly concerned with operating margin at this point, given that the company is opening new facilities and otherwise spending to fuel long-term growth. (Operating margin will at least partly improve along with an improvement in gross margin.) But gross margin (total revenue minus cost of goods sold, divided by total revenue) is another matter.

In its fiscal Q1 earnings release, the company addressed this issue: “While we are confident in the Company’s upward trajectory, we acknowledge the impact that our dramatic growth has had on our gross margins, in particular, the utilization of air freight and additional cost incurring quality control measures at our receiving warehouse to meet demand. We have implemented a number of strategic operational initiatives that will drive our gross margins back toward 30% as we scale the business, with improvements in margins expected in the second half of fiscal 2019.”

KSHB Gross Profit Margin (Quarterly) Chart

Data by YCharts.

As to valuation, KushCo stock’s price-to-sales (P/S) ratio is 5.6, which is quite high in general, but reasonable relative to other cannabis stocks.

KSHB PS Ratio (TTM) Chart

Data by YCharts.

Investors need to keep an eye on liquidity and shareholder dilution. At the end of its most recently reported quarter, KushCo had cash and equivalents of just over $3 million and long-term debt of $7.2 million on its balance sheet. The company burned through $48 million in cash over the last year, financing its ramped-up spending through increasing its debt load and issuing significantly more shares of stock. (Over the last one and two years, the number of shares has increased about 27% and 62%, respectively.) Increasing the number of shares of stock has a dilutive effect on the ownership stakes of existing shareholders.

Canopy Growth set to become the ‘global titan’ of cannabis: CIBC report

Canopy Growth Corp. in Smiths Falls is poised to dominate the global … And as the largest and most well-known cannabis company in the world, …

Canopy Growth Corp. in Smiths Falls is poised to dominate the global cannabis industry, a new report says.

The CIBC World Markets report compares the cannabis industry to both the gold rush and the development of the internet and the automobile. Only a few companies will live up to the “lofty expectations” of many and dominate the global market, said the report from the investment banking arm of the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce.

“We believe that Canopy Growth represents the industry’s best chance at a global titan.”

Canopy has billions in the bank, superior management, the potential to make breakthroughs with new medical products, and global aspirations, said the report. And as the largest and most well-known cannabis company in the world, Canopy also has a head start on global competitors.

“Investors rarely get to witness the birth of an industry,” said the report. While dozens of small and medium-size cannabis firms will earn moderate revenues, only a handful will dominate the global trade, the report predicts.

The report named Cronos Group as another likely winner. Cronos owns cannabis growing facilities in Ontario and British Columbia, and has international operations.

Canopy and Cronos stand out primarily because of their “best in class” management teams, said the report.

That’s a key factor in an industry in which stock prices ride a roller-coaster.

Prices fluctuate in response to news reports and regulatory changes. Consider Ontario’s rough start to the legalization of recreational cannabis on Oct. 17, with complaints of poor service and delayed deliveries at the online government store. Most Canadian cannabis growers lost 30 to 40 per cent of their company value in a week, the report noted.

On the other hand, even rumours of major players from other industries investing in cannabis can send stocks soaring.

Canopy had a market value of $19.8 billion at the end of the day Monday.

But such valuations matter less for cannabis companies than some other industries, the report said.

“The key element of any investor’s choice is management’s vision for the future, both for the industry as a whole and their own niche within the industry.”

Canopy’s Bruce Linton is probably the most famous cannabis CEO, said the report. That matters because of his familiarity to regulators and ability to negotiate with executives in other industries, it said.

The report said it’s not surprising that Canopy and Cronos have captured the two largest investments in the cannabis industry, from Big Alcohol and Big Tobacco.

Constellation Brands, a U.S. beer, wine and spirits company, poured $5.2 billion into Canopy to develop cannabis beverages. Tobacco giant Altria Group Inc. has a proposed investment in Cronos of $2.4 billion that will be voted on by shareholders next month.

Canopy, which began life as Tweed Marijuana in the old chocolate factory in Smiths Falls, has been the main ambassador for the cannabis industry, said the CIBC report.

Canopy has been snapping up other companies at a rapid clip and expanding internationally.

It started by growing marijuana for medical patients and branched into recreational cannabis. Sometime this year, Canopy will unveil cannabis drinks, which officials promise will offer low-calorie, no hangover, healthier alternatives to alcohol.

However, the company still retains a strong focus on medical cannabis, where officials see global opportunity and the potential to replace pharmaceuticals and other products now used for sleep aids, pain treatment and mood therapy.

Canopy is also developing CBD products to treat anxiety in pets, another potentially huge market. (CBD is a non-psychoactive chemical found in cannabis and hemp.)

3 Investing Trends to Watch in 2019

Another big player in marijuana stocks is Aurora Cannabis (NYSE:ACB), which is one of the top cannabis-producing companies. Aurora is benefiting …

There have been a few trends that have gained steam over the past few years and are shaping up to become even bigger in 2019. For those who’ve been paying close attention to the technology, automotive, and healthcare industries, you’ve likely noticed that artificial intelligence, electric vehicles, and cannabis growing are three stock ideas that just can’t seem to stay out of the headlines.

Like most investment trends, betting on these trends early is better than holding off for too long. You might have to stomach some volatility as they grow, but there’s no mistaking that each offers its own unique investing opportunity.

Trend 1: Artificial intelligence

AI has the potential to bring truly transformative technologies to market, some of which we’re already beginning to see. For example, Alphabet‘s (NASDAQ:GOOG)(NASDAQ:GOOGL) self-driving car company, Waymo, recently launched the first commercial autonomous ride-hailing service just last month. Waymo’s technology is primarily controlled by artificial intelligence systems that process visual information from cameras and sensors to give the autonomous vehicles sight.

Waymo’s service is still in the early stages, but estimates have put the company’s potential market value at $70 billion.

Amazon(NASDAQ:AMZN) is also knee-deep in AI and already uses machine learning, a type of artificial intelligence, for the speech and image recognition services it provides through its Amazon Web Service (AWS) cloud-computing platform. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has also highlighted the use of machine learning to improve how the company forecasts product demand, product search rankings on its website, and deal recommendations.

Amazon’s AI integration is an example of how businesses will implement AI over the coming years, and as they do, they’ll create $3.9 trillion in global business value (including cost reductions, new revenue streams, and better user experiences) by 2022, according to Gartner. And that might just be the tip of AI’s full potential. Artificial intelligence could add $15.7 trillion to the global economy by 2030, according to PwC.

Trend 2: Electric vehicles

This one might seem like an odd trend to highlight, but recent moves by General Motors(NYSE:GM) indicate that electric vehicles are on their way to becoming more mainstream. The company announced back in November that it was laying off some of its workers in part so that it can focus attention on making a new platform for electric vehicles (EVs).

GM is expected to release the first EV on the new platform in late 2021 or early 2022, and it will eventually use it across its Cadillac, Buick, and Chevrolet brands, though its initial EV focus in the U.S. will be on Cadillac vehicles. The pivot to EVs is a big one for GM, and the move may be partially influenced by the rise of EV sales in China, which is the largest automotive market. Electric vehicle sales in the country already outpace those in the U.S.

Of course, no discussion about EVs is complete without mentioning Tesla(NASDAQ:TSLA). Despite a a year of controversies in 2018 involving the company’s CEO Elon Musk, Tesla was able to steadily increase deliveries of its Model 3 from 1,550 in the fourth quarter of 2017 to an impressive 63,150 in the fourth quarter of 2018.

The jump in Tesla Model 3 deliveries over the past year prove that the company — and EVs in general — are only beginning to find traction. It’s worth pointing out that there’s still a long road ahead for Tesla. Musk recently said that he’s laying off 7% of the company’s workforce while still aiming to increase Model 3 production.

Over the next few years, EV sales are poised to take off. The latest estimates from J.P. Morgan show that global sales of electric vehicles will reach 8.4 million units in 2025, up from just 1 million in 2016. And with those increases, EVs will create a $567 billion market that same year.

Trend 3: The cannabis industry

And finally, one of the biggest trends many investors are watching right now is the cannabis industry. Much of the excitement around this market comes from what’s happening in Canada, where the sale of marijuana to adult individuals for recreational use is now legal across the country.

The opening up of the cannabis market in the country has caused the share price of the few publicly traded Canadian marijuana growers to skyrocket recently. For example, shares of Canopy Growth, Inc.(NYSE:CGC), one of the largest cannabis growers in Canada, have popped 60% over the past six months. Investors are optimistic about a $4 billion investment the company received from Constellation Brands(NYSE:STZ), one of the world’s largest alcoholic beverage companies, in mid-2018. Canopy also recently made a move to begin selling hemp-based consumer goods in the U.S. that’s sparked investor optimism.

Another big player in marijuana stocks is Aurora Cannabis(NYSE:ACB), which is one of the top cannabis-producing companies. Aurora is benefiting from medical marijuana sales in countries around the world and has expanded its reach recently through several important acquisitions. Aurora’s stock, like most marijuana stocks, remains highly volatile but has lots of potential.

The worldwide legal cannabis market is expected to grow to $194 billion by 2025, and if current trends continue in the U.S., America’s marijuana market will be worth $23.4 billion by 2022.

How to follow these trends

It’s impossible to predict how these trends will grow, of course. But there’s no denying that electric vehicles, artificial intelligence, and the cannabis industry are hot markets getting lots of attention right now.

In the coming years, it’s likely investors will continue to hear more about these markets as more companies use AI to improve their businesses, as EV sales continue to grab more automotive market share, and as more countries (namely, the U.S.) expand legal cannabis sales. For investors looking to benefit from some of the biggest trends available right now, each of the companies mentioned above is worth a closer look.
