Whether you’re an existing or prospective investor in The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (TSX:TGOD) (OTC:TGODF) it can be nice to get a Wall Street analyst’s opinion on where they think things are headed. Even better than one analyst’s opinion is four analysts’ opinions. This is especially useful guidance given some of the recent catalysts pushing shares of the international cannabis producer up over 80% on a year-to-date basis.
Most recently, the Hamilton City Council voted to allow TGOD to operate its cannabis greenhouse in Ancaster, Ontario. Just days prior, The Green Organic Dutchman kicked off sales and shipments of certified-organic cannabis to medical marijuana patients.

Their knowledge combined with their unparalleled access to company executives and information means analyst updates are always worth reading.
When it comes to marijuana stocks, it is no different.
