The S&P/TSX Cannabis Index fell 5.72 points to 142.06 Friday, ending the week down 11.07 points. The Canadian Securities Exchange Composite Index, which provides a good proxy for American cannabis stocks, fell 1.99 points to 376.91 and was down just 2.6 points on the week. In company news, Florida-based cannabis producer Liberty Health Sciences Inc. (LHS) lost a cent to 53 cents on 1.39 million shares after releasing its fiscal Q4 2019 and full-year results. The company's revenue rose modestly to $17.7-million in fiscal Q4 from $16.1-million in fiscal Q3. That eases off the revenue growth that Liberty Health had put up from fiscal Q1 to Q3 a bit, but the company made considerable progress overall in fiscal 2019. Liberty Health went from revenue of $5.5-million in Q1 to $10.6-million in Q2 to $16.1-million in Q3 to the aforementioned $17.7-million in Q4.
Management quickly lined up to remind shareholders of the importance of the moment.

This, of course, is expected in a rapidly growing industry.
