With a healthy balance sheet and improving results, GMP Securities analyst Robert Fagan thinks The Supreme Cannabis Company (The Supreme Cannabis Stock Quote, Chart: TSXV:FIRE) is a cannabis stock that should be on investors’ radar.
On Friday, FIRE announced the completion of a $100-million bought deal financing. The company said it intends to use the proceeds to fund existing and planned facilities.
Fagan says after a recent tour of the company’s facility in Kincardine, Ontario he came away impressed with the appearance of its mature plants, and says the company clearly places a premium on producing superior products. He thinks the company has everything a leader in the sector should, except a lofty valuation.
“With better than expected Q4/18 results, and multiple supply contract wins recently, we believe FIRE has shown good execution which combined with apparent strong dried flower demand, bodes well in our view for the outlook. Eleven supply agreements secured for the first year of REC sales have improved visibility, while FIRE’s capacity expansion to 13,330kg before year end underpins the company’s rapid scale-up of operations. Given the above, we consider FIRE’s relative valuation discount (~65%) is too steep vs. peers, and hence could rerate from its current level at ~5x 2020 EV/EBITDA.”
