hexo – Hexo receives a downgrade from Oppenheimer on belief of greater margin pressure than expected.

Shares of medical cannabis producer HEXO Corp. (HEXO - Get Rating) (HEXO – Get Report) dropped on Tuesday after the company received a downgrade from Oppenheimer on what the research firm believes is greater gross margin pressure than initially expected.

In a research note to clients, Oppenheimer analyst Rupesh Parikh said he was downgrading the stock to perform from outperform mainly because he now sees the shares as more fairly valued following the company’s acquisition of Newstrike Brands.

Hexo acquired Newstrike Brands in March in an all-stock deal valued at roughly C$263 million ($197 million).

“Although we are stepping to the sidelines, we still see many positives to the HEXO Corp. (HEXO - Get Rating) story longer term and believe the name should remain on the radar for investors,” Pariksh said.

Shares of HEXO Corp. (HEXO - Get Rating) were down 6.26% to $5.24 in trading on Tuesday.


HEXO shares fell $0.01 (-0.19%) in after-hours trading Tuesday. Year-to-date, HEXO Corp. (HEXO - Get Rating) has gained 49.56%, versus a 16.85% rise in the benchmark S&P 500 index during the same period.
