However, it is facing losses and the situation of the stock is very speculative.

While the stocks of Canopy Growth and Aphria have performed better than the other companies, the marijuana stocks are currently very rough and an investor needs to think over before investing money. If we compare with the status of Aurora Cannabis, there are better companies to invest in at present.
Although, the company is aiming and expects to accomplish positive adjusted EBDITA, i.e. earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization, yet there is no surety that this will happen. Therefore, investors must consider every aspect before putting in their money. The company is doing its best to clear off the debts but this will happen soon or late, no one can say. With the clearance of debts, it also needs to buck up its resources. The quarterly earnings and profits have not been good but the company is trying to assure the investors that the situation will soon improve.
Aurora Cannabis is not a buy now stock as of now. The company will take time to reach the state where it can make profits and currently, there is more need to focus on sales. The company has to increase sales and only then there will be a chance that in the coming times, it will again stand back strong.
The overall situation of the marijuana –cannabis industry is not so well, therefore an investor must consider well and analyze each stock completely before investing in the stocks. The future might bring better times for these firms but nothing can be said as of now. It depends on the risk-taking capacity of the buyers to decide for these stocks.
