In the partial day of trading, the S&P/TSX Cannabis Index dropped 6.38 points to 163.29 Thursday, while the Canadian Securities Exchange Composite Index sank 17.08 points to 330 as the broader market continued to decline on coronavirus fears.
In company news, Medmen Enterprises Inc. (MMEN) dropped 4.5 cents to 36 cents on 4.17 million shares on its fiscal second quarter results, which the company released after the market closed yesterday. After back to back quarters with losses of $82-million (U.S.), United States-based Medmen posted a $96.4-million (U.S.) loss in fiscal Q2 (ended Dec. 28, 2019). The company's revenue essentially remained flat: it had $44.1-million (U.S.) in Q2, compared with $43.9-million (U.S.) in Q1.
