New Age Beverages Corp (NASDAQ: NBEV) is having an incredibly strong session in the market today. However, the company hasn’t released any news. Nonetheless, there’s a lot to think about when it comes to the stock, and it may be a very strong play. Today, we’ll talk about:
- Why now may be the time to jump in on NBEV;
- What we’re seeing from the stock; and
- what we’ll be watching for ahead.
Why Now May Be The Time To Jump In On NBEV
As mentioned above, New Age Beverages is having a strong day in the market today, but no news has been released. Nonetheless, I’m glad that it’s moving because the move gives me the chance to talk about the potential opportunity here.
For the most part, we all know that the Farm Bill has been passed and that this will make it legal to distribute CBD-related products throughout the Unite States. This is great news for NBEV. After all, the company was one of the first publicly traded companies to announce that it would be launching a line of CBD-infused beverages.
However, that launch couldn’t take place until it was legal to do so. After all, CBD was looked at as a Schedule 1 controlled substance, and illegal to buy and sell in the United States. Nonetheless, now that it is legal, the company now has the ability to launch its products throughout the United States.
The truth of the matter is that anything related to cannabis is a hot topic at the moment. It is estimated that 70% of Americans have either tried or used cannabis, and that was when everything associated with cannabis was illegal. Now, those looking to experiment with cannabis-related substances will have the ability to do so legally through CBD-related products. For NBEV, this could lead to a flood of business as consumer interest leads to sales.
Moreover, it’s worth mentioning that well before the Farm Bill was passed, New Age Beverages was hard at work, laying the foundation for a strong launch once it became legal to do so. The company took part in road shows, conferences, and more, creating relationships that would lead to a strong distribution network right out of the gate. Considering this, the company is well positioned to take advantage of the changing tides with regard to legalities surrounding CBD.
At the end of the day, NBEV seems to be in the right place at the right time. Perhaps more importantly, it seemed as though management knew that this opportunity would be coming and worked hard to make sure that they were well positioned to strike when it did. All in all, this is a stock that’s becoming hard to ignore.
