Aurora (ACB.NYSE) rolls back, Gaia Grow (GAIA.V) rolls on

“The simple fact of the matter is ACB is getting around a THIRD of their product returned in real dollar terms,” wrote Equity Guru’s Chris Parry two months ago, “That means they either REALLY suck at growing weed, or they really sucked at figuring out what the market was going to look like when planning their business.”
