OrganiGram gives up gains after rising over 500%
OrganiGram led the decliners Thursday, falling 11.8% to $1.04 per share on nearly 5 million shares traded by 2 PM EST. OrganiGram traded to within 3 cents of its 52-week high yesterday, touching $1.42, before settling back.
OrganiGram is still up more than 5 times from its 52-week low of $0.195 – hit in early October. Venture investors have not been used to such broad moves in specific sectors.
The TSX Venture has seen its average total liquidity increase over the past few weeks. This has to be due to the resurgence in marijuana stocks as the resource sector continues to struggle. We wrote about this trend in yesterday’s Stock Challenge write up. Below is a short excerpt:
“Marijuana stocks light up TSX Venture
Marijuana-related issuers on the TSX Venture have accounted for a huge percentage of the overall volume on the TSX Venture of late.
For example, on Wednesday, the TSX Venture traded a total of 61.4 million shares.
Five stocks, OrganiGram Holdings, Canopy Growth, Emerald Health Therapeutics, Maple Leaf Green World and Aphria accounted for 14.32 million shares or nearly 25% of the total volume on the exchange Wednesday.”

Aphria was off 9.2% to $1.38 per share Thursday on about 1.1 million shares traded. Canopy Growth was down 9.4% on over 4.1 million shares traded.
OrganiGram, Canopy Growth and Aphria had combined to trade over 10 million shares by 2 PM EST Thursday.
Maple Leaf Green World was one of the only marijuana-related issuers in the green Thursday. It is also one of the cheapest, from a share price and market cap stand point. Its shares were up 26.32% to $0.12 per share on 2.65 million shares traded. This phenomenon of hot money flowing into smaller, less known marijuana stocks in the days and weeks after more well-known issuers, such as Canopy Growth, had made significant runs appears to be repeating itself.
