Q: These are my biggest losers across my accounts. What are their prospects? Are any worth keeping, or is just time to move on? I don’t mind some risk, but don’t want to hold the hopeless ones any longer.

Q: Many on your tax-loss list show estimated revenue growth > 100%; in more than a few cases, > 200%. In the case of marijuana stocks, this is puzzling, as many argue that prices will continue to weaken.
On what basis, then, should we place confidence in these numbers? Take HEXO, which you observed (last August) was priced at 4X forward sales, has since then declined by 45%, but is estimating revenue growth at 280%: what would it take to find its prospects 'interesting'?

Q: Hello Peter,
When emerging companies come to market like in high tech or other sectors, revenues seems to be the focus rather than profits especially in the early years. However, for the cannabis companies, the expectation is they have profits fairly quickly. Why is there so much pressure on these companies? For example, organigram had good revenues but did not meet profits and their stock took a hit. Hexo , unfortunately, messed up on the guidance for revenues and it is down which makes sense. Do you see the pot sector heading on a downward slope or do you think there is a chance of recovery? Thanks very much.

Q: Quite a smackdown on these stocks today. I'm still not in this group, but wondering if I shouldn't dip into them a bit. In what order would you rate these, in terms of (potential) viability?

I notice that Hexo's company profile states it's a "consumer packaged goods cannabis company" ... which suggests, then, that they don't grow their own. Is it better, in this industry, to grow your own ... or to be at arm's length, and be more of a repackager and distributor?

Even with the smackdown, would you (Peter or Ryan) get into the sector at all?
