While we will not be weighing in with fundamental analysis we hope this piece will give investors interested in stocks on the way down a good starting point to do further homework on the names.
Pot stocks have been struggling in the second half of 2019, and this one is a poster child of misery. The trend is in place, and it's all downhill. At some point it will stop, but for now it continues to be a great short opportunity.
Money flow is poor while the Relative Strength Index (RSI) is steep and bending lower. The cloud has been red and pointed lower for months; Canopy Growth could find itself in the mid- teens before too long.
Stops are at the top of the channel, around $22.
While consumers may still be robust spenders, some of the travel companies are not so sure. Carnival got hammered over the last two quarters and continues to make lower lows.
The recent bear flag (hockey stick) is a good chance to get a short working, around the low $40s area. The cloud is red and widening while relative strength is weak with a very steep angle.
More downside is coming.
