Canopy Growth Corporation ("Canopy Growth" or the "Company") (TSX: WEED) (NYSE: CGC) officially revealed its Cannabis 2.0 portfolio of products last week, set to come to market as part of the second wave of Canadian cannabis commercialization. With December 16, 2019, being the first date new product formats can be sold into distribution channels, the Company expects that in most markets new products will not be seen on shelves until early in January 2020. Leveraging learnings from Cannabis 1.0, the Company will stagger its launch of various products and formats to ensure a smooth roll-out. As such, availability will vary by province based on their individual ordering and distribution activities. While the Company is providing this update in advance of the launch of Cannabis 2.0 products, for competitive reasons, it will not provide ongoing updates during the actual rollout period.
MKM Partners is worried by a lack of activity in the company’s product lines ahead of Dec. 17, when pot-infused drinks, edibles, and other products become legal in Canada.
Cannabis stocks have been on the mend lately, although most are still carrying painful losses this year. Hexo (NYSE:HEXO) is not an exception to this observation. Hexo stock has been under considerable pressure, down 37% in 2019 and more than 70% from its May high.Source: Shutterstock Is the cannabis space really going to make a comeback? That much isn't clear yet, unfortunately. But we can determine which ones to buy in the event that names like Hexo stock do rebound.In November, these names fell off a cliff. I mean, really tanked hard amid relentless selling. Painful as it was, the plunge at least got the discussion going that perhaps these names were capitulating. There could still be some end-of-year selling as investors look to lock in tax losses, but positive signs are starting to emerge.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsFor instance, on Tuesday, when the stock market opened lower with indexes down more than 1%, pot stocks were holding in. Then they turned positive and started to gain momentum. How could cannabis stocks be green on the day when the S&P 500 index was down 1.3% for the session?These are not high-quality equities or a flight-to-safety asset class. That got my attention and I'm now taking the charts more seriously. * 7 Stocks to Buy in December Trading Hexo Stock Click to Enlarge Source: Chart courtesy of StockCharts.comAt the beginning of summer, cannabis stocks started to swoon. I flagged a few of these breakdowns, like Canopy Growth (NYSE:CGC) and Aurora Cannabis (NYSE:ACB), cautioning investors to be careful now that key support was giving way.I didn't expect it would lead to some of the declines we've seen since. Many of these names are down 60% to 70% from the highs, while Tilray (NASDAQ:TLRY) is down 90%. Ouch!However, most of these names are rebounding from the lows -- Hexo stock included. Like I said of CGC the other day, two developments are now critical for bulls. First, Hexo stock price must avoid making new lows. It was a panic collapse that sent shares down to $1.56.Bulls also need to see Hexo stock price clear downtrend resistance (blue line). Clearing the 50-day moving average would also open things up a bit on the charts. In short, we need to stop seeing lower lows, and starting seeing higher lows develop on the chart.We're unlikely to go from a sharp downtrend to a massive uptrend overnight. There will be setbacks along the way, but we need to see these two developments before we can trust Hexo.On the chart above, investors can also see that $2 has played a key role lately. Below it should put investors on caution for a possible retest of the lows. If it can hold above $2 a share, a test of its downtrend marks will be in the cards, as well as a possible push to $3. Let's keep an eye on Hexo stock. Bottom Line on Hexo StockDo the charts make Hexo stock a buy? In a word: no. The charts show that the situation is improving from a few weeks ago, but has not signaled the all-clear to investors just yet.So what about the fundamentals?Judging cannabis stocks based on the fundamentals is difficult. That's because many have triple-digit sales growth but low revenue figures. Further, most are not free cash flow positive or profitable, yet garner valuations in the billions.Because of the large correction this year, Hexo stock now sports a market cap of $527 million. Is that too much? Well… * 7 Exciting Biotech Stocks to Buy Now Last year, Hexo had net revenue of 47.3 million CAD ($35.9 million) and lost over 86 million CAD. Investors should know that profits have been elusive for this company.That's not necessarily a nail in the coffin, but companies that are sacrificing profits for growth need to have staying power via the balance sheet. With just 113.5 million CAD in unrestricted cash, some investors have to be nervous. That's even as current assets sit at 314 million CAD, compared to just 52.6 million CAD in current liabilities.But the acceleration in liabilities -- with total liabilities up to 104.3 million CAD last quarter from 17.3 million CAD three quarters ago -- and the negative cash flow is a concern. Hexo isn't the worst pick, but amid a cannabis comeback, I prefer Aphria (NYSE:APHA) and Canopy Growth stock, which have stronger balance sheets.Bret Kenwell is the manager and author of Future Blue Chips and is on Twitter @BretKenwell. As of this writing, Bret Kenwell is long APHA.

The bull case for Canopy Growth (NYSE:CGC) stock at this point essentially is that the market has overreacted. Cannabis plays have been hammered this year amid disappointing revenue growth and fears of cannabis oversupply. Canopy Growth stock hasn't been spared: it's down 65% from its late April highs.Source: Jarretera / Shutterstock.com But there are reasons why its near-term results have disappointed investors. One of those reasons looks particularly key. Health Canada, that country's cannabis regulator, has been slow to approve retail licenses. Especially in Ontario, Canada's most populous province, the retail infrastructure is lagging the industry's production capacity.That should start to change in 2020. Meanwhile, Health Canada is starting to approve licenses for so-called "Cannabis 2.0" products like vapes and edibles. The hope is that more retail locations selling more products will ease the industry's overcapacity. That, in turn,will boost the revenue and margins of Canopy Growth and other cannabis producers.InvestorPlace - Stock Market News, Stock Advice & Trading TipsIt's an intriguing theory, particularly with CGC stock near its lows. But there are still valid concerns about Canopy Growth stock, even after its 60%-plus decline. And if Cannabis 2.0 can't fix Canopy Growth stock, it's difficult to see what can. The Rollout of Cannabis 2.0Last week, Canopy Growth unveiled its extensive Cannabis 2.0 portfolio.Canopy Growth is launching a broad lineup of vaping products. In partnership with Hummingbird Chocolate, Canopy is unveiling multiple chocolate products under several brands. * 7 Retail Stocks to Buy That Dominated Thanksgiving Shopping The company will release several beverages, including the trademarked Distilled Cannabis, a clear liquid made from whole cannabis flower. Its Tweed RTD (ready to drink) flavored beverages contain THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBD (cannabidiol). Canopy will also offer sparkling water under its Quatreau brand, THC-heavy Deep Space carbonated beverages, and unflavored mixers.The release of such a broad portfolio highlights one of the reasons why many cannabis bulls have chosen Canopy Growth stock. The multi-billion dollar investment by Constellation Brands (NYSE:STZ,NYSE:STZ.B) in CGC last year gave it enough capital to lead the industry. Canopy's plans for Cannabis 2.0 suggest it has a real chance to do so. The Case for CGC StockMeanwhile, CGC's rivals have very real financial concerns. Aurora Cannabis (NYSE:ACB) continues to dilute its shareholders, but it still has a significant balance sheet problem. Hexo (NYSE:HEXO) has focused on edibles from the start, but it, too, needs to conserve its cash.Canopy has no such problems. Thanks to the Constellation investment, it still has 2.7 billion CAD in cash and investments. Cash burn has been an issue in recent quarters -- its cash balance shrunk over 400 million CAD in Q3 alone -- but that problem should moderate going forward.That balance sheet gives Canopy plenty of options. It can be aggressive on pricing, hoping to outlast its rivals. It could pick up assets down the line, assuming distressed companies look to sell themselves before (or after) going bankrupt.More broadly, bulls can argue that the problem with the Canadian cannabis industry is not a long-term issue. The slow pace of regulatory action has caused many of the sector's problems, including oversupply and lower-than-expected revenue.Those problems will be fixed: Canopy Growth's management projected after Q3 that supply and demand would return to balance by the middle of next year. And once that happens, optimism towards the worldwide cannabis sector will return. Few, if any, companies will be better-positioned for that opportunity than Canopy Growth. The Risks to Canopy Growth StockI'm sympathetic to that bull case, particularly with Canopy Growth stock below $20. But there are risks to CGC stock that are worth noting.First, Canopy Growth stock might be cheaper than it was, but it's not cheap. Even backing out cash net of debt, the company is valued at about $5 billion. That's roughly eight times the mean Wall Street 2020 top=line estimate.Second, it's not yet clear that Cannabis 2.0 will be the blockbuster for which bulls hope. Cannabis derivatives are expected to bring in new consumers, but consumers simply may not be interested in them.Meanwhile, CGC's competition will be intense, with the likes of Cronos (NASDAQ:CRON), Tilray (NASDAQ:TLRY), and many others similarly releasing edibles and vapes. There already are legitimate worries about Canopy's plans to be all things to all consumers, plans which so far haven't worked out. At the least, Canopy needs to execute much better than it has so far, and it has to do so without a permanent CEO in place. CGC's Margin ProblemFinally, Canopy Growth stock is significantly dependent on Cannabis 2.0 products at this point. If demand for pot derivatives doesn't materialize, the stock is in real trouble.The company's deal with Acreage Holdings (OTCMKTS:ACRGF) targets a U.S. recreational market that may not open up for years. The CBD opportunity in the U.S. looks less attractive after the struggles of the sector's leader, Charlotte's Web (OTCMKTS:CWBHF). International markets haven't changed much in the past 18 months.The long-running concern about CGC stock, and cannabis producers more broadly, is that production is going to be a low-margin, commoditized business. There's early evidence to suggest that indeed will be the case. If derivatives don't drive real revenue at high margins, the company's long-term profit outlook will drop even further.In other words, CGC stock remains a risky bet to make. And it's tough to make a compelling case as to why the bet should be made right now. CGC's execution has been weak. It has repeatedly missed its guidance. Stocks across the sector remain falling knives, and Canopy Growth stock is largely in that category.That said, I can see why cannabis bulls see CGC as attractive below $20. If its long-term opportunity is even close to what optimists believe it is, there's a path to a longer-term rally. That path requires the company's Cannabis 2.0 to be successful, meaning those products will likely define the performance of CGC stock next year.As of this writing, Vince Martin has no positions in any securities mentioned.

There has been a lot of hype concerning what has been dubbed Cannabis 2.0 in Canada, as the country legalized a variety of derivatives that are expected to boost revenue and earnings of companies successfully navigating the new waters.The first thing to keep in mind concerning Cannabis 2.0 is that even though it went into effect in Canada in October, a required 60-day notice sent to Health Canada announcing intent of companies to sell the derivatives means they won't be allowed to start selling until the last couple of weeks of December. That means there won't be a lot of impact or feedback on the potential of derivative products until the end of the first calendar quarter of 2020.Another thing to take into account is with the legalization of recreational pot in Canada in 2018, it only included legal sales of sprays, oils, and dried flower. With the launching of Cannabis 2.0, it includes vapes, edibles (like chocolates, cookies and gummies), and infused beverages like juices and beer, among other product lines.Over time, this should produce a significant increase in revenue and earnings because of wider margins associated with these products.A key thing to consider here is that the introduction of legal recreational pot sales in Canada appealed to long-term cannabis users. With the advent of new consumption options, it should attract new users that weren't comfortable with the way illegal pot had been consumed, even though it has been legalized.While it'll take time to prove my thesis, I think edibles will probably be the largest contributor to the improved performance of Canadian cannabis companies, including the big three being covered in this article.In this article we'll look at the three largest cannabis producers in Canada, and what to expect from them in regard to the potential impact on their top and bottom lines.Aurora Cannabis (ACB)As with most cannabis companies, Aurora Cannabis has been under enormous pressure since early 2019; that's especially true of companies competing in Canada, because of the low number or retail outlets to sell their product out of. That's changing, but it'll take time for enough stores to open to make a big difference in the performance of Aurora.Consequently, the company has halted construction on a couple of its facilities until there are enough stores opened that can meet demand. The overall issue hasn't been too much supply, but not enough places to sell legal pot out of.For that reason, the black market continues to thrive in Canada, and will until legal outlets provide more competition.As Aurora starts to sell its line of derivatives, and the number of stores grow, it'll have a strong impact on revenue and earnings.Concerning production capacity, it can quickly finish off its facilities and ramp up capacity to over 700,000 kilograms annually. Based upon its existing assets, it could do more than that if demand justifies it.I believe as demand grows for derivatives, the market will want reliable and consistent sources of supply in order to have predictable product available at the retail level. Aurora will be one of the leaders in that regard. (See Aurora stock analysis on TipRanks)Canopy Growth (CGC)Canopy Growth has the potential to reach production capacity of a little over 500,000 kilograms annually, and so is well positioned to capture meaningful market share of the Canadian cannabis derivative market.A concern with Canopy remains its lack of a permanent CEO, which to me has resulted in a lack of focus, which has produced weak results. For example, it made a poor decision in relationship to what types of CBD oils to sell, which didn't perform near to expectations in the latest quarter.The big mistake made by Canopy in the first couple of quarters after recreational pot legalization in Canada was that consumers preferred to go with softgels and oils. The thinking was because many medical cannabis users preferred those means of consumption, so would recreational users. The company was wrong. Product returns and huge discounts on recreational oils has resulted in hot of over C$40 million over the last couple of reporting periods.Assuming Canopy can get its act together, it does have the production capacity base to take some market share in derivatives, but it has to make decisions based upon much more accurate research and data in order to improve its performance.The idea of it having a lot of cash to back it up is getting old; after all, how much has it helped its performance so far? Being able to survive longer than many of its peers is much different than growing and taking market share on a sustainable basis. (Discover how the overall price target for Canopy breaks down on TipRanks here)Aphria (APHA)Aphria, the third-largest Canadian cannabis company as measured by production capacity, will be able to, with the combination of Aphria One, Broken Coast, and Aphria Diamond, produce up to 255,000 kilograms of cannabis annually.With that capacity, it could generate up to $700 million of sales in fiscal 2020.With most of its performance coming from non-operational sources, the company has yet to prove it can be profitable from cannabis sales alone. For that reason, it's not as strong as has been suggested in the financial media, and needs to show stronger operational results in the quarters ahead.Aphria does have a strong balance sheet of cash and cash equivalents of about $464.3 million, which will allow it to not only survive, but potentially thrive if it's able to build out a solid distribution network over the next year. (See Aphria stock analysis on TipRanks)ConclusionThere is no doubt Aurora Cannabis, Canopy Growth and Aphria will be able to generate a significant amount of cannabis supply going forward. The major issues will include the pace of the roll out of license retail stores, how quickly market demand for derivatives will grow, and the amount of black market share these companies will win.On the positive side, I see many smaller companies dropping by the wayside in 2020, bringing more opportunity for these big three Canadian producers to grab more market share.Assuming the black market starts to shrink, that will remove a lot of lower-cost recreational pot from the market as well.For these reasons, I see the big three Canadian producers turning things around in 2020. What investors should take into account is this isn't going to happen in the first quarter, it's going to take at least to the second calendar quarter before we get a clear look at what is and isn't working with derivatives.We also have to see how accurately the marketing teams of these companies identify what consumers want. Canopy Growth has proven you can miss big in a segment of the market that was expected to do very well for the company.Last, I believe retailers will increasingly look to suppliers that can consistently deliver quality product on time. Aphria, Canopy Growth and Aurora Cannabis shouldn't have problems achieving those results.Cannabis 2.0 has the potential to be a real game changer for these three companies. If they deliver the goods, by the end of 2020 it should find them all reaching sustainable profitability for long into the future.To find good ideas for cannabis stocks trading at fair value or better, visit TipRanks’ Best Stocks to Buy, a newly launched tool that unites all of TipRanks’ equity insights.
