The long overdue rebound in marijuana stocks is finally here. The cannabis sector, led by the segment's most important company, Canopy Growth (NYSE:CGC), are breaking out in early 2020. Investors are betting that the demand and legislative troubles of 2019 will fade, and the whole industry will rebound in a big way over the next several quarters.Source: Shutterstock This isn't a small breakout, either, but a material one: Canopy Growth stock is already up 12% in 2020. That's basically 1% growth every trading day and represents the most upward momentum this stock has seen since early 2019. And it's worth noting that the move has also been on big volume, so there appears to be a lot of money out there staking big on a huge CGC turnaround.That's the good news for bulls. Here's the better news -- this big Canopy Growth stock turnaround will only get bigger as we go deeper into 2020.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading Tips * 10 Cheap Stocks to Buy Under $10 In a nutshell, favorable fundamental developments in the cannabis market will spark a significant growth trend reversal for Canopy over the next few quarters. This growth trend reversal will converge on what is still a very beaten-up and relatively discounted CGC stock. That convergence will spark a huge rally in shares to levels north of $30.Here's a deeper look. Favorable Fundamentals Will Develop in 2020Thanks to weakening fundamentals in the global cannabis market, Canopy's growth trajectory meaningfully slowed in 2019. I think that will change in 2020. Cannabis market fundamentals will strengthen and Canopy's growth trajectory will meaningfully improve.This thesis breaks down into three components: revenue growth re-acceleration, profit margin stabilization and net loss reduction.First, the introduction of new products like vapes and edibles into the Canadian market, coupled with significant legal retail footprint expansion, will re-ignite demand growth throughout Canada's legal cannabis market over the next few months. At the same time, Canopy Growth will aggressively pivot into the U.S. market with its First & Free hemp product line. Canadian legal demand revival coupled with new U.S. revenue streams will improve Canopy's revenue growth trajectory in 2020.Second, as demand trends in Canada improve in 2020, demand will finally start to catch up to a supply glut in the market. This will lead to more favorable market pricing and higher gross margins for Canopy Growth. Simultaneously, Canopy's 2019 production facilities will start to produce at capacity in 2020, which will also provide a year-over-year margin boost. Net net then, Canopy's 2019 margin headwinds could turn into 2020 margin tailwinds.Third, the combination of revenue growth re-acceleration and profit margin stabilization will lead to Canopy reporting narrower losses. That's a big deal for a hyper-growth, unprofitable company that needs to inch towards profitability in order to justify its valuation. Canopy Growth Stock Will SoarBecause of the three aforementioned fundamental improvements, CGC is set to soar in 2020.The logic is pretty simple. Investors once believed that Canopy would emerge as the top dog in an ultra valuable global cannabis industry. But slowing growth and profitability concerns clouded that bull thesis, and ultimately knocked shares down to $20. Those slowing growth and profitability concerns will ease significantly in 2020. As they do, investors will start to once again buy into the idea that Canopy is going to emerge at the top dog in a huge global cannabis industry.The last time investors believed that, Canopy Growth stock was up at $50. Shares could make a run for that level again as investors once again adopt this bullish mentality amid re-accelerating growth, stabilizing margins and narrowing losses.The numbers are pretty simple, too. Under the paradigm that Canopy will leverage its unparalleled size, resources, partnerships, and distribution to turn into the Altria (NYSE:MO) or Anheuser-Busch (NYSE:BUD) of a several hundred billion dollar global cannabis industry at scale, I think that Canopy reasonably projects to earn $5 in profits per share by fiscal 2030.Based on a forward earnings multiple of 16 and a 10% annual discount rate, that implies a a 2020 price target for Canopy Growth stock of about $33 to $34. Bottom Line on CGC StockCGC had an awful 2019 amid deteriorating cannabis market fundamentals. Shares will bounce back in 2020 amid improving cannabis market fundamentals. This rebound has already started in the first two weeks of 2020, and will continue for the balance of the year. Ultimately, Canopy Growth stock will head way higher over the next several months.As of this writing, Luke Lango was long CGC.

(Bloomberg) -- Sign up to our Next Africa newsletter and follow Bloomberg Africa on TwitterAnheuser-Busch InBev is installing solar panels at South African breweries in a push to reach global environmental goals that comes as state-owned utility Eskom Holdings SOC Ltd. struggles with blackouts.The brewer of Budweiser beer said it’s joined an 18 billion rand ($1.3 billion) pan-African plan to generate more energy from environmentally friendly sources. The solar panels in South Africa are just one part of the initiative, which includes partners and spans the region.The world’s biggest brewer has set a global target of securing all of its purchased energy from renewable sources by 2025. The company this month partnered with others in Europe to tap green power from BayWa r.e., a German renewable energy developer.The latest move comes as Eskom has had to institute rolling electricity blackouts due to operational problems. That has prompted South African companies to secure electricity through other means, although regulations require them to buy some of their power from the utility.“We can’t do 100% renewable power in Africa at this stage” because of the sourcing rules and the instability of some power grids, said Taryn Rosekilly, vice president for sustainability at AB InBev Africa.AB InBev is completing solar electricity projects at seven South African manufacturing sites and also testing electric trucks for deliveries.Solar power at the breweries will provide 10% to 15% of the energy needs of AB InBev’s South African businesses and costs 15-20% less than buying electricity generated by Eskom, the company says. Other green power generation options being considered include wind and converting liquid waste produced by the breweries into gas.By the end of this year, AB InBev plans to use wind and solar power at a malting plant in Caledon, in South Africa’s Western Cape province. It will be the first South African site using 100% renewable energy.To contact the reporter on this story: Janice Kew in Johannesburg at firstname.lastname@example.orgTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Eric Pfanner at email@example.com, John LauermanFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

Is Anheuser-Busch InBev SA/NV (EBR:ABI) a good dividend stock? How can we tell? Dividend paying companies with growing...
(Bloomberg) -- Anheuser Busch InBev’s Felipe Dutra may step down after about 15 years as chief financial officer of the world’s largest brewer, a person familiar with the matter said.Succession planning is routine for officials at his level, according to the person, who asked to remain anonymous as the information isn’t public. Timing of the change isn’t known and Nelson Jamel, the company’s financial head for North America, is one of a number of people under consideration as a replacement, the person said.AB InBev has disappointed investors as Chief Executive Officer Carlos Brito reported earnings below analysts’ estimates in four of the past eight quarters. Brito halved the brewer’s dividend payout in 2018 amid sluggish progress on debt reduction following the acquisition of SABMiller in 2016, although moves such as the disposal of the Asian business are aimed at cutting borrowings.The shares fell as much as 1% in Brussels Wednesday.The Financial Times reported earlier that AB InBev was considering replacing Dutra. A company representative declined to comment. A call to Dutra’s office after business hours wasn’t answered.(Updates with shares in fourth paragraph)To contact the reporter on this story: Thomas Buckley in London at firstname.lastname@example.orgTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Eric Pfanner at email@example.com, John Lauerman, Jonathan RoederFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
