CBD Stocks Falling Hard: New Age Beverages (NBEV) and India Globalization Capital (IGC)


New Age Beverages NBEV Stock NewsNew Age Beverages Corp (NASDAQ: NBEV) and India Globalization Capital, Inc. (NYSEAMERICAN: IGC) are both having an incredibly rough day in the market today. While neither company has released any news, we believe that we’ve found the reason for the decline. Today, we’ll talk about:

  • Why NBEV and IGC stocks are falling;
  • what we’re seeing in the market; and
  • what we’ll be watching for ahead.

Why NBEV And IGC Are Falling

As mentioned above, both New Age Beverages and India Globalization Capital are taking a bit of a dive in the market today. Interestingly enough, these are both stocks that have seen pretty strong runs as the result of CBD-infused beverage announcements. While neither company has released any news, we do believe that there’s a good reason for the declines in both NBEV and IGC.

It all has to do with a competitive investment. Recently, a Seeking Alpha article pointed to the idea that Youngevity International (YGYI) was the best play in the CBD space. In particular, the article pointed out that YGYI is currently trading at 1x expected 2019 revenue before accounting for CBD drinks.

It’s hard to argue a multiple like that. It’s one that we don’t often see in any industry. In the CBD space, stocks have been soaring, reaching multiples that are leading many to believe that this is a bubble. So, with the fact that YGYI’s 1x revenue multiple was pointed out, we believe that investors interested in CBD-related investments are ditching NBEV and IGC and moving their money over to YGYI.

What We’re Seeing In The Market

As we know, investor sentiment is a key player in market performance. When it comes to New Age Beverages and India Globalization Capital, investor sentiment is down as a result of a competitor that seems to be the clear opportunity in the space. So, it comes as no surprise to see that both of these stocks are falling. Of course, our partners at Trade Ideas were the first to alert us to the declines. Currently (11:45), NBEV and IGC are trading at $6.15 per share and $5.05 per share respectively after respective declines of $1.24 per share and $1.69 per share or 16.78% and 25.06% thus far today.

  1. Harsco ended its merger with Brand Energy. Now, they should look to recover money from Brand’s ex-CEO and the ex-GE people he brought in with him.

    The CEO of Brand was negligent. He brought in his friends from GE and didn’t fire them no matter what. The ex-GE guy in Houston had to be shuffled all over the country because he was despised. He was called President of Business Development. He has the polish-looking last name and was sent to Houston from California in 2011. They had to keep him on the road all the time because he couldn’t get along with anyone. Can you imagine how much that cost the company? The ex-CEO also sent him around to meet with all kinds of companies even though he was extremely obnoxious. Can you imagine how many companies he scared away and how much money was lost due to that? The ex-CEO of Brand should be held liable for this.

    Watch out for ex-GE guys. They play politics and are a major problem in corporate America. Clayton, Dubilier, and Rice owns Brand Energy. Brand was ruined by ex-GE guys like the former CEO and the “President of Business Development” in Houston. Were they doing their fiduciary duty? Brand’s investors need to investigate the former executives and their spending immediately. Blackrock and other big names are investors in the bonds of Brand Energy.

    Some executives have moved to a company called Total Safety. That company can be investigated next. It’s owned by Littlejohn, the investment firm.
