With a little over and hour left in the year 2019, past 10PM on December 31, I saw a news release from James E. Wagner Cultivation (JWCA.V) about a small $2 million loan they’d taken out. The timing of the announcement of their loan was surely not coincidental. Actually, thinking about it, ‘payday loan’ might be the more appropriate term to have used. JVCA took out a debenture financing of $2 million at an interest rate of 25% annually. That’s just the first tranche of the deal; there’s another $8 million out there if they want it. My credit card, abused as it has been, costs me less interest to maintain than JWCA’s loan.
You’ve gotta love it when a plan comes together: 1933 Industries (TGIF.C), which has been banging the same ‘we’re grownups, we’re doing it right, hang tight’ drum for several years now, dropped news this February 14 that will make any Valentine’s heart swell with joy. “Following the completion of a combined 20,000-square-foot expanded cultivation, extraction, manufacturing and distribution facility in the Los Angeles area, the company began harvesting its first cannabis crop this week to be utilized for both its proprietary brand Alternative Medicine Association (AMA), as well as for its licensing partner luxury brand Blonde cannabis, with products earmarked for dispensaries for the first time outside of Nevada.”
Ontario-based Supreme Cannabis (FIRE.T) released its Q2 2020 financials today and there were few surprises contained in its pages, bar perhaps the size of the quarterly loss. At a $17.3 million net loss after taxes (and a $10.4 million loss in adjusted EBITDA terms), FIRE shares fell in value below the $0.40 mark it’s been hovering around for some time, a 5% drop in real terms. Previous quarters had seen smaller losses, even come close to break even. But even the rosiest-eyed fanboy would have expected these numbers to be rough, considering the CEO change and staff layoffs announced earlier in the year. We predicted as much a week ago.
The quarterly financials news release just put out by Aurora Cannabis (ACB.T) isn’t exactly hype. It reflects a company coming to grips with the fact
In VEXT’s latest financials we learned that “Gross Revenues increased 36% to USD $18.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 from USD $13.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2018.”
Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell said that the Fed is keeping a close eye on the possible fallout and impact of the coronavirus outbreak in China. Powell hasn’t made any claims yet as to what this means either in terms of possible liquidity injections or a rate cut. Let’s examine that.
In 2019, Shopify spent $1 billion to build fulfillment centers in the U.S., trying to compete with Amazon by deliver packages in less than 48 hours. This effort was described by Shopify CFO Amy Shapero as “energizing the flywheel.”

Large Canadian cannabis licensed producer Supreme Cannabis (FIRE.T) told the markets they’re laying off around 30% of their staff today, days before their next quarterly financials are released and with the dust still settling after their recent CEO change. To the casual observer, this might appear to be a sign of desperation, that the sky is falling in Kincardine, Ontario, and the owner of the esteemed 7 Acres brand was making some sort of last ditch effort to stave off Armageddon. It ain’t that.

Canada more than doubles the Indian subcontinent in terms of land mass, but its population of 37.59 million is a 2.8% sliver of India’s 1.3 billion – that’s 4 people per square kilometre compared to 420. Interestingly, both India and Canada are in the middle of a serious housing crisis that threatens to break the spine of India’s economic miracle and stab at the heart of Canada’s social stability. Will anyone be able to save us from this fate before it’s too late?
