Max V analysis on why Sundial and cannabis stocks will keep rising – Click Here
In a press release by Sundial Growers ($SNDL), the company and board of directors had authorized advisors and management that strategic alternatives need to be considered. One of these potential alternatives would be a Sundial merger with a larger existing cannabis company. An alternative that has already garnered interest from multiple Cannabis companies.
While this sounds gloomy, it is quite the opposite. Hope is far from lost for investors holding onto Sundial stock, as many potential cannabis companies appear to be perfect candidates for a merger with Sundial.
Sundial stock holders have been hanging onto a wild roller coaster, but things should be looking up in the near future.
Sundial Has The Vape Game On Lock
While Sundial Growers may be liquidating their physical flower stock, their appeal to potential buyers or investors may not be totally lost.
Flowers and merchandise have flopped for Sundial Growers. The vape market however has been very much in their favor.
“The change in average gross selling price was primarily due to an increase in vape sales. Average gross selling prices for unbranded flower in the second quarter were $2.82 per gram up from $2.74 per gram in the previous quarter despite competitive pressures in the wholesale market as a result of industry-wide increased inventory levels.
The gross revenue from vape cartridge sales was $6.3 million in the second quarter of 2020 representing a 44% increase from the previous quarter. The company sold 5,997 kilogram equivalents of cannabis in the second quarter of 2020, a 35% increase over the previous quarter sales of 4,437 kilogram equivalents.” -Green Market Report
Inventory Clearance/Sunken Cost
Sundial Growers is also now liquidating remaining physical stock at retail locations. Some merchandise and products are being cleared out at pennies on the dollar.
“It is also looking at selling limited quantities of inventory at or below cost and entering into long-term supply agreements with other licensed producers, licensing or other strategic transactions involving the company, or any combination of the foregoing.
Sundial has engaged a financial advisor to assist with these efforts.” – Green Market Report
Sundial Merger A Strong Possibility
In short, the outlook is bright.
The stock is currently trading under .30 cents per share. There is not much to lose here.
Aside from total bankruptcy (which there are no indications of), there is no reason why this stock won’t eventually increase.
We have the same advice for holders and potential buyers. Buy!
States are legalizing, Sundial is selling vape carts almost as fast as they can produce them.
We should expect further talk of a merger in the near future.
Sundial Growers vape cartridge popularity is too large for other cannabis companies and investors to ignore.
“The clear low-light was that analysts slashing their revenue forecasts for Sundial Growers next year. Analysts also expect revenues to grow faster than the wider market.
The consensus price target fell measurably, with analysts seemingly not reassured by recent business developments, leading to a lower estimate of Sundial Growers’ future valuation.
Given the stark change in sentiment, we’d understand if investors became more cautious on Sundial Growers after today.” – NASDAQ.com
Despite this outlook from NASDAQ, here at AFN we are very confident that a Sundial merger will be announced soon. Their marketing ability when it comes to vapes is too skilled and too intangible to ignore.
