Aphria Inc. (APHA.TO) – HEFFX Top Pick Jumps 13.97% Overnight
HEFFX Shayne Heffernan yesterday made a case for investors to choose Aphria Inc. (APHA:TO) and successfully increased 13.97% during Toronto trading.
Aphria Inc. is our top pick for June. It’s a worldwide consumer packaged goods and wellness company focused on cannabis.
The company has posted stellar earnings up to now in 2020, and i believe it will still do so within the near future. The Canadian cannabis industry is due for a correction after the fallout of financing issues and COVID-19.
Last earnings, Aphria announced a 54% growth of cannabis sales quarter-over-quarter while other similar corporations are posting flat or decreased growth. i would also consider the current share price of Aphria to be undervalued based on future cashflows.

A big white candle occurred. This is generally considered bullish, as prices closed significantly higher than they opened. If the candle appears when prices are “low,” it may be the first sign of a bottom. If it occurs when prices are rebounding off of a support area (e.g., a moving average, trendline, or retracement level), the long white candle adds credibility to the support. Similarly, if the candle appears during a breakout above a resistance area, the long white candle adds credibility to the breakout.
