Analyst Consensus: As per TipRanks Analytics, based on 7 Wall Street analysts offering 12-month price targets for TLRY in the last 3 months, the stock has an average price target of $5.39, which is nearly 46% upside from current levels.
Potential Catalysts / Reasons for the Hype:
- The US. Bloomberg reported that Senate Democrats plan to introduce a bill to decriminalize marijuana at the federal level next week.
- German Chancellor Olaf Scholz is reportedly intent on legalizing adult-use cannabis there by 2024. Tilray would presumably be a huge beneficiary, already having a state-of-the-art medical facility in Germany.
On analyzing the company’s stock charts, there seem to be multiple bullish indications…
#1 Falling Wedge Pattern: The daily chart shows that the stock has been forming a falling wedge pattern for the past several months. These are marked as purple color lines. It has typically taken support at the bottom of the wedge before bouncing back. The stock currently looks poised for a breakout from the falling wedge pattern. Once the stock breaks out of the falling wedge pattern, it could move higher.
#2 Bullish ADX and DI: The ADX indicator shows bullishness as the +DI line is above the -DI line, and the ADX line is currently moving higher from below the +DI and -DI lines.
#3 Bullish Stoch: The %K line of the stochastic is above the %D line, and has also moved higher from oversold levels, indicating possible bullishness.
#4 MACD above Signal Line: In the daily chart, the MACD (light blue color) is currently above the MACD signal line (orange color). This indicates a possible bullish setup.
#5 Above Support Area: The weekly chart shows that the stock is currently trading above a support area, which is marked as an orange color dotted line. This is a possible bullish indication.
#6 Bullish Stoch: The %K line is above the %D line of the stochastic in the weekly chart as well, indicating possible bullishness.
Recommended Trade (based on the charts)
Buy Levels: If you want to get in on this trade, the ideal buy level for TLRY is above the price of $3.75.
Target Prices: Our first target is $4.80. If it closes above that level, the second target price is $6.50.
Stop Loss: To limit risk, place a stop loss at $3.10. Note that the stop loss is on a closing basis.
Our target potential upside is 28% to 73%.

In other words, this trade offers 2x to 4x more potential upside than downside.

READ BEFORE TRADING PENNY STOCKS: The allure of penny stocks lies in their potential to deliver massive gains in a short period of time. However, in exchange for that opportunity, most penny stocks carry tremendous risk. They can be extremely volatile and are susceptible to “pump and dump” schemes and fraud.
Unlike regular stocks, the financial condition of most penny stock companies can be extremely difficult to analyze, as the majority of such stocks are traded on over-the-counter (OTC) exchanges, which are typically less transparent and less regulated than the major exchanges. In fact, in the penny stock space, it’s often easier to spot warning signs and red flags than it is to identify a sound investment. Nevertheless, we do our best to identify short-term trade opportunities in this exciting space because we know some of our readers are looking for high-risk, high-reward ideas. We just urge you to make sure you fully understand the risks before making any of these trades.The No. 1 Gold Play for 2023 [sponsor]
