Cannabis stocks have seen major downside last year. This year some stocks have seen a reversal around mid-January 2020 and some have been rising slowly since later November. However, Cannabis stocks make the top of the daily Robinhood list of popular stocks. Is this reversal for real or a short term change? we will analyze a few stocks in this article.
The industry is struggling to recover after a few roaring years of success. There are many reasons for the decline — limited market growth, access to strategic capital and a crowded market. I don’t see an immediate change in the long term industry trends and there are no promises that the situation would improve however, the stocks are providing some great swing trade opportunities. Let’s take a peek at them.

Canopy Growth (CGC) has also struggled since April 2019 when the stock price was in the early 50s. The company sees a bright spot after almost 9–10 months of price decline.
