In the above chart, we’ll look at the yellow line, which represents Canadian cannabis stocks. The line is the average EV-to-sales multiple of nine cannabis stocks. The stocks include Canopy Growth (WEED), Aurora Cannabis (ACB) (ACBFF), Tilray (TLRY), and Cronos Group (CRON). The line gives us a sense of how the current levels compare to the past two years.

The current industry level is trading at an EV-to-sales multiple of 4.6x, which has declined nearly 20% over the past month. In the chart, you can see that the valuation stocks are trading at an all-time low compared to the last two years, which indicates that the stocks are trading at a discount.
