Cannabis Industry Forecasts Make These Stocks Worth Researching
March 5, 2019 -- InvestorsHub NewsWire -- Microcap Speculators -- There are three major estimates that make stocks in the industry worth researching. In the report "2019 Update to the State of Legal Marijuana Markets", from Arcview Market Research and BDS Analytics, global sales are expected to grow 38% in 2019 to $16.9 billion and hit $31.3 billion by 2022. That's a compound annual growth rate of 26.7% between 2017 and 2022.
In 2016, Cowen Group sector analyst Vivien Azer released a 110-page report, "The Cannabis Compendium: Cross-Sector Views on a Budding Industry," that outlined a trajectory to $50 billion in global sales by 2026. However, in April 2018, Azer updated Cowen's outlook for the cannabis industry by increasing its forecast to $75 billion in global sales by 2030.
The third estimate, which came out this past week, is courtesy of Wall Street investment bank Jefferies’ analyst Owen Bennett. Bennet says the global cannabis market, which includes sales estimates for 22 countries, should grow from $17 billion in 2019 to $50 billion by 2029, closely matching Cowen's initial estimate for 2026. Bennett's research note suggests that $19 billion of this will be derived from the medical marijuana market, with $31 billion in worldwide revenue coming from adult-use pot.

Real Brands, Inc. (USOTC: RLBD) (Market Cap: $14.418M, Share Price: $0.1089) is launching a CBD beverage called Omega Hemp Water™. The company is very close to its next production run, meaning there could be major news on the way. The audit on the horizon means this could also be another major event for investors to pay attention to.
The company just announced that they have engaged an accounting firm that is registered with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) to complete their two-year audit which could make the company desirable to larger investors. Now’s the time to research RLBD.

The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (USOTC: TGODF) (Market Cap: $847.726M, Share Price: $3.14) received a boost when Owen Bennett of Jefferies initiated the coverage on Green Organic Dutchman with a “buy” rating and a price target of 6.10 Canadian dollars.
