Trulieve Cannabis: Big Florida Risk

 

  • Trulieve Cannabis faces far more competition in Florida now than at the end of 2020.
  • At least 3 or 4 stronger MSOs have entered the state to absorb a substantial amount of the growth in the state.
  • The MSO faces risk that Q2 revenues will miss targets and the company will face margin pressure in Florida while expanding in other states with lower margins.
  • The stock isn't expensive at a 3.3x forward EV/S multiple, but Trulieve isn't likely to rally in the face of any slowing organic growth.

The U.S. cannabis space has been on a major growth trajectory over the last few years. While the MSO (multi-state operator) space has plenty of growth catalysts ahead, not every company has the same opportunity. My investment thesis is more Neutral on Trulieve Cannabis (OTCQX:TCNNF) as the MSO faces far stronger competition in Florida after a period of competing against mainly weak operators in the space.
