    Tesla buys the land it needs for its Shanghai Gigafactory

    Tesla has secured an 860,000 square meter plot of land in Shanghai for its first overseas Gigafactory after signing an agreement with the local government. The EV-maker confirmed the purchase on Chinese social media, complete with pics from the signing ceremony of the "land transfer agreement." Though Tesla didn't reveal the price, Reutersreports that the Shanghai Bureau of Planning and Land Resources said that the plot fetched 973 million yuan ($140.51 million) at auction. A deal was then officially announced in July of this year, with Tesla later adding that it was "accelerating" plans for the site's development -- spurred by a scathing import tariff rate of 40 percent on its vehicles, compared to 15 percent for other car imports.

    Marijuana stocks to watch: Canopy Growth is the cannabis business’s $4 billion gorilla

    The following article is part of a package of stories that MarketWatch is publishing to mark the start of full legalization of cannabis for adult use in Canada on Wednesday. Smith Falls, Ontario–based Canopy Growth Corp. made headlines and drove cannabis stocks to new heights over the summer when it announced that Corona brewer Constellation Brands Inc. was going to invest an additional $4 billion in the company. Billed by both companies as a strategic partnership, the additional $4 billion investment adds to the 9.9% stake that Constellation bought in October of last year and sets the company up to either be bought outright by Constellation — via warrants that could increase its stake to more than 50% — or continue to work with the beverage company to create a range of consumer-focused cannabis products that may one day appear in markets in dozens of countries.
