Vertical Group sees 90% downside in Tilray, says 'back up truck' to short
It is time to "back up the truck" and short shares of Tilray, Vertical Group analyst Gordon Johnson tells investors in a research note. The analyst introduced a year-end 2020 price target of $4, which implies around 90% downside to Tilray's closing price Wednesday of $39.04. The company's top shareholder, Privateer, is set to unload its 72% position over the course of this year and next, Johnson points out. Further, the analyst calls Tilray's Q2 results "horrific." On top of that, the company, which only has two-to-three quarters of cash left, admitted its results are slated to get worse, adds Johnson. The analyst says that in his years covering stocks, he's rarely seen such a richly valued company.
