Aphria weakens

Aphria (APHA) reported its earnings last week. The company reported impressive quarterly results, and the stock rose almost 40%. But in the following days, Aphria saw some weakness. On August 8, the stock was trading almost 3.1% lower. While the company saw downward price action, it was still much higher than its levels before the earnings announcement. To put this trend in perspective, consider that Aphria is still up 30%.

The market received Aphria’s stellar earnings positively. The company saw upward analyst revisions, and the consensus price target for APHA is about 15 Canadian dollars. The target leaves quite a bit more room from the current price of 6.65. Learn more in Aphria: Target Price and Valuation Update.
