Whether you’re an existing or prospective investor in Canopy Rivers Inc. (TSXV:RIV) (OTC:CNPOF) 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 three analysts’ opinions.
While the Leaflink platform has already demonstrated a dominant position in the United States, the new venture, called LeafLink Services International ULC, will exclusively license and leverage the LeafLink, Inc. technology throughout regulated international cannabis markets.
Do Analyst Opinions Even Matter?
Analysts have been around as long as stocks, but they’ve never been as influential as today. Given how quickly information passes through the investor ecosystem, one analyst’s update can send a company’s shares tumbling or soaring.
Analysts aren’t just market-moving, though. They’re also highly qualified investment professionals that have devoted years to studying business and investments to earn designations like CFA or CPA. 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.
