Cannabis Stocks Watchlist: Aurora Cannabis Soars Higher

Marijuana stocks rose Tuesday after President Trump said his administration would cooperate in the transition to Joe Biden’s presidency.

Cannabis sector-related exchange-traded funds were also increasing due to favoring a Biden presidency that could push the country toward legalizing sales of recreational marijuana.

Here is a list of the cannabis stocks to watch and their performance this past week by the percentage change at the close of trading on Nov. 27.
