Sundial Growers (NASDAQ: SNDL) is a cannabis strain producer based in Canada with a $255M market capitalization. Cowen & Co. led the company’s IPO in July of 2019, raising $143M with a price of $13/share. Cannabis stocks had a tough 2019, with many names moving lower. Sundial shares took part in the trend, being offered in the $2-handle today. The borrow fee fell along with the stock price, from 100% in July to 27% today. Short Interest doubled since November 1st but the fee indicates the market can meet this demand. With 70% Utilization and banks offering to lend to IBKR, we don’t see evidence of supply constraint.
