Analyst Opinion On How To Bet On Alliance One International, Inc. (AOI), Cenveo, Inc. (CVO)

Alliance One International, Inc. (NYSE:AOI) recently saw its volume around 0.48 million shares and on average it trades 0.04 million shares a day. The opening price of $16.45, led it to gain 21.32% to reach $19.35 upon the closing bell.

Alliance’s wholly owned subsidiary Canadian Cultivated Products, Ltd. has purchased a 75 per cent stake in Prince Edward Island-based Canada’s Island Garden Inc. and an 80 per cent stake in Ontario-based Goldleaf Pharm Inc., the company announced in a press release on Thursday that accompanied its Q2 earnings. The company did not reveal how much it paid for the two Canadian companies. The company reported better-than-expected fiscal third-quarter earnings. It earned $9.80 per share on revenue of $477 million.

The acquisition move echoes the $245-million investment that leading U.S. alcohol company Constellation Brands made in Canopy Growth Corp. back in October. That was widely seen as a hedge by Constellation, which owns beer brands like Corona, against the potential for cannabis use to displace alcohol consumption.

Compared with Canopy, Canada’s Island Garden, PEI’s only licensed producer, is tiny. A recently announced 1,000 kilogram supply contract with the PEI government will take up most of the LP’s current crop, said CEO Edwin Jewell.

The company, however, is planning to expand its 20,000-square- foot facility to 250,000 square feet over the next several years. The expansion could cost $25 million to $40 million, Jewell said.
