Cannabis Stocks Edge Higher Last Week Led by Nuvilex & Entertopia

07/22/2014 | 09:35am US/Eastern

WHITEFISH, MT / July 22, 2014 / The Marijuana Index(TM) moved slightly higher last week, despite a 7% drop in GW Pharmaceuticals plc (NASDAQ: GWPH) shares. Medbox Inc. (OTC: MDBX), the second largest component of the index, also fell over 5% last week.

Top gainers last week included Nuvilex Inc. (OTC: NVLX), which jumped more than 16.5% after reporting positive results in dogs for its anticancer treatment, Enertopia Corp. (OTC: ENRT), which jumped more than 13% after receiving municipal approval for its MMPR joint venture in Burlington, Ontario, and Novus Acquisition & Development Corp. (OTC: NDEV), which rose more than 12% last week.

Cannabis regulatory initiatives also gained ground last week. In a favorable swing, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to support making it easier for cannabis-related companies to access the commercial banking sector. A new survey also found that U.S. citizens are increasingly embracing both medical and recreational marijuana following the successful rollout of both programs in several states.

What to Watch This Week

The cannabis sector continues to move higher, as it recovers from its lows made earlier this year. In Canada, investors are still waiting for MMPR licensing decisions to be made for several companies, while keeping an eye on the injunction that?s keeping the country?s MMAR program alive for now. In the U.S., regulators appear to be increasingly supportive of cannabis, as state-wide experiments continue to be positive in terms of both public safety and tax revenue from cannabis.
