Senvest Management, LLC Expresses Concerns Regarding the Terms of Aurora Cannabis, Inc.’s Takeover Bid for CanniMed Therapeutics Inc. in Letter to the Board; Announces Voting and Tender Intentions
NEW YORK, Jan. 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Senvest Management, LLC, as agent for and on behalf of the funds for whom it acts as investment manager or advisor (“Senvest”), with a significant ownership position of approximately 8% of the outstanding shares of CanniMed Therapeutics Inc. (“CMED”), announced today that it has delivered a letter to the Board of Directors of Aurora Cannabis, Inc. (“ACB”) expressing serious concerns regarding the proposed terms of ACB’s takeover bid for CMED launched on November 24, 2017.In its letter to the Board, Senvest expresses its view that the proposed price under the ACB bid significantly undervalues CMED and does not fairly recognize CMED’s relative contribution to the pro forma combined business, citing a number of objective metrics which inform this view.  Senvest believes strongly that the combination of CMED with Newstrike Resources, Ltd. (“HIP”) will bring together the most trusted medical brand with a recreational brand featuring the endorsement of Canada’s iconic band “The Tragically Hip,” positioning CMED to take a leading position in the emerging Canadian cannabis market. Senvest has voted its shares in favour of CMED’s acquisition of HIP and will not be tendering its shares to the ACB takeover bid. Senvest encourages all CMED shareholders to do the same.For further information, please contact:Senvest Management, LLC, Media Department E-Mail Address: Media@Senvest.comSTRICTLY PRIVATE & CONFIDENTIAL January 16, 2018Board of DirectorsAurora Cannabis Inc.1500 – 1199 West Hastings StreetVancouver, British Columbia Canada V5E 3T5Dear Members of the Board:Senvest Management, LLC (“Senvest Management”) advises private investment funds, which as of January 15, 2018, own 1,896,500 shares of common stock of CanniMed Therapeutics Inc. (“CMED”), equal to approximately 8% of its shares outstanding, and 3,500 convertible bonds of Aurora Cannabis, Inc. (“ACB”).  We are writing to you to express our view and concerns regarding ACB’s proposed transaction to acquire CMED by way of a tender offer launched November 24, 2017, with ACB shares offered as consideration (“the ACB Offer”).  We believe that the ACB Offer significantly undervalues CMED and does not fairly recognize CMED’s relative contribution to the pro forma combined business.  We note a number of objective metrics which inform this view, as outlined below.On a pro forma basis based on the current market price1 of ACB shares at approximately $11.50 per share, under the terms of the ACB Offer, CMED shareholders would own approximately 11% of the new entity, significantly less than the 36-38% pro forma relative FY2018 revenue and EBITDA contribution, and 24-26% pro forma relative FY2019 revenue and EBITDA contribution that is described below. The Canadian cannabis stocks2 have all traded significantly higher since ACB’s initial announcement of an intention to make a formal bid on November 14, 2017 to acquire CMED and markedly higher in the past month.  In the last 21 trading days, an equal-weighted index of Canadian cannabis stocks has increased by approximately 38%, while CMED stock has increased by only 23%.  We believe that the price per share under the ACB Offer is likely constraining CMED’s stock price due to the cap price of $24.00 per share (“Cap Price”) imposed in the ACB Offer.  If ACB had not imposed the Cap Price, the value per share under the ACB Offer for CMED would amount to approximately $52 per share. The chart below illustrates the relative contribution of various metrics that CMED would provide on a pro forma basis to the combined ACB-CMED entity, based on the most recent quarter (“MRQ”) financial results reported by CMED and ACB and estimates provided by Bloomberg, which clearly demonstrates that the 11% pro forma ownership of CMED shareholders in the combined ACB-CMED company would be significantly less than the relative contribution provided by CMED.http://www.globenewswire.com/NewsRoom/AttachmentNg/ae01369c-171e-4b16-ac63-844611873071Source: Company Filings and Bloomberg Consensus Estimates as of 1/16/181 As of January 15, 20182 Canopy, Aphria, MedReleaf, Cronos, CannTrust, Hydropothecary, Supreme, OrganiGram, Emerald, ABcann, Maricann, and Emblem, as listed in ACB December 2017 PresentationWe believe that a consolidation strategy has become a critical factor to future success in the competitive Canadian cannabis market.  As you know, CMED has entered into an agreement to acquire Newstrike Resources Ltd. (“HIP”), which is subject to HIP and CMED shareholder votes expected to occur on or about January 17, 2018 and January 23, 2018, respectively.  We believe that it is a foregone conclusion that HIP shareholders will approve the transaction based upon, among other things, the voting support agreement signed by shareholders representing approximately 58% of HIP shares outstanding.  As a result, we believe that CMED shareholders voting on the deal will determine its fate.  As an 8% shareholder of CMED, coupled with the fact that approximately 36% of CMED shareholders are required to vote against the deal, we believe that Senvest Management holds a key independent vote, focused on maximizing shareholder value,  in the HIP transaction. Finally, we note that if CMED and HIP market capitalizations were added together, and divided by the pro forma CMED shares outstanding, it implies a CMED stock price of approximately $33 per share.  This further demonstrates the woefully inadequate terms of the ACB Offer. Moreover, we believe strongly that the combination of CMED with HIP will bring together the most trusted medical brand in Canada with a recreational brand that has no peer. This brand, UP Cannabis, features the endorsement of Canada’s most iconic rock band, The Tragically Hip.  We believe that this truly Canadian combination will make CMED the industry player to beat.  As a result of the foregoing, we voted our significant stake in favour of the HIP transaction and will not be tendering our shares to the ACB Offer.  Senvest encourages all CMED shareholders to do the same.Sincerely yours,Senvest Management, LLC

5 Ways to Invest in Stocks with Little Money
/Lydia Wanjiru/ -- Stock investments are a lucrative opportunity that anyone can venture into even with little money. Investors looking for cheap stocks to buy today can consider buying these 5 stocks: 1.    Buy a mutual fund A mutual fund is an investment platform that is funded by the shareholders that trades in diversified holdings usually run by an asset management company. A mutual fund pools money from various investors to purchase securities such as stocks, bonds and more. Shares of a mutual fund are bought and sold by a fund family like the Fidelity, Vanguard or Charles Schwab. Buy a mutual fund with the lowest possible fees.  
Finance Attitude - 10 Common Types of Mutual Funds
/Lydia Wanjiru/ -- A mutual fund pools money from a variety of investors to create a portfolio of stocks, bonds, real estate, money market instruments or other securities. Some mutual funds concentrate on a single asset class such as stocks or bonds while others invest in a variety. Mutual funds are bought directly from the fund companies such as Vanguard, T. Rowe Price or Fidelity and more, unlike stock market where shares can be bought from one investor to another. A professional manager for the fund invests the money in different types of assets including stocks, bonds, commodities and other assets. Investors earn from the mutual funds through dividends on stocks and interest on bonds. You can invest in mutual funds with as low as $100 but the majority of mutual funds require a minimum initial investment of between $500 to $3000 and the institutional class funds and hedge funds require at least $1million or more. Mutual funds trade once per day, unlike ETFs.
Finance Attitude - 3 Ways Stock Investors Make Money
/Lydia Wanjiru/ -- One sure way to build wealth is through stock investments. A stock is a share or a portion of a corporation’s ownership. Choosing the right stocks to invest in is a key factor to ensure that you get a solid return on your investments. Investing in shares requires a basic understanding of how stock investments work so that you can make an informed decision when you invest. You need to know how the stock investment will help you make money.
Finance Attitude - 5 Key Variables to Consider Before Selecting the Stocks to Buy
5 Key Variables to Consider Before Selecting the Stocks to Buy
/Lydia Wanjiru/ -- How do you identify the best and the most suitable stocks to buy? Majority of investors buy stocks based on a few things that they can understand such as the price of the stock. A group of other investors tend to invest based on a given emotional attachment to the company like them or their close relative is a client or an employee of that company. However, there are more variables that you should take into account before committing your money in a particular stock. You need to consider these 5 key parameters before you pick a stock to buy: 1.    Price- earnings growth ratio The price earnings growth ratio (PEG) is derived by dividing the price-earnings ratio (P/E) by the prospective rate of growth. So, for example, if PE is 20 and the prospective growth rate is 10% then the PEG would be between 1.0 and 2.0 and it means that the PEG is stretched. Therefore, just because a company is growing rapidly doesn’t mean it is an ideal investment even though rapid growth often translates to high valuations Price Earnings (PE) ratios. There are past valuations that can be quite useful in evaluating the strength of the current valuation. 2.    Relative strength index Another variable worth taking a keen interest in is the relative strength index. This is basically a measure of a stock’s price performance versus the current one at the market. For a variety of stocks, it ranges between 30 and 70 and the highest being the strongest performers. 3.    Consistent Earnings Growth You can consider checking the stock growth consistency as it is an indicator of how the stock is performing. If it has shown a constant growth in the past, then it is also likely to continue the same trend in the future. This boosts investor confidence and you can always check the performance of the stock in the latest three years to find out the consistency of its performance before you settle on it. 4.    Coefficient Variance The Coefficient Variance (CV) is a measure of the consistency of the analysts’ findings and earnings estimates. It usually ranges between 0-15 and a low CV of up-to 4 suggests that there is a reasonable consensus among the analysts. When the CV of a stock progresses further and goes beyond 4 then it means that the analysts have little confidence in their given estimates and thus that particular stock is more risky to buy. 5.    Free Cash Flow The Free Cash Flow (FCF) is the cash that is usually left after deducting taxes, capital expenditures and paying all the debts outstanding. It means that if a company has Free Cash Flow (FCF) or a left-over of cash, it is retained and used as capital for further company expansions and business developments. A company that has a high free cash flow is worth investing in as that is an indicator that the company is likely to have or currently has a good stock performance.

Finance Attitude - 3 Useful Tips for Beginners in Cryptocurrency Trading
3 Useful Tips for Beginners in Cryptocurrency Trading
/Lydia Wanjiru/ -- The Cryptocurrency industry is booming and taking the world by storm. Cryptocurrencies and more particularly Bitcoins are becoming the most discussed topic in every investment platforms. In the year 2017 alone, Bitcoin increased by over 1000% as it rose from $800 in January to $17,000 in December 2017. Another Cryptocurrency called Ripple has recently surged by around 53%. Here are 3 tips to help you understand the cryptocurrency industry as a beginner: 1.    Research and understand everything about Cryptocurrencies Every investor desire is to find an opportunity to invest and get good returns on their investment. Investing in cryptocurrency also requires caution and understanding its price movements. Invest when there is a dip or when you are optimistic that the coin will surge. You cannot buy cryptocurrency coins through a regular brokerage account or from the Bank because it is not yet regulated by the authorities. Cryptocurrencies are commodities that any interested investor can trade in. There are numerous cryptocurrencies available today such as Bitcoin, Ripple, Ethereum, Litecoin, Dash, IOTA, ZCash just to mention a few and several of cryptocurrency exchange sites. Research on how the coin is performing in the market and choose the right ones to invest in and the exchange to use. It’s not always possible to perfectly time your buys and sells because there is no set path to take when trading cryptocurrency. Cryptocurrencies have a decentralized nature meaning that it cannot be shut down or be easily manipulated. Bitcoin has been a good example that many people who traded have reaped numerous benefits from it surge. This shows that cryptocurrency is for sure the next big thing in the investment industry. 2.    Determine a Strategy and choose your initial investment To Buy and Hold is one of the best strategies to use in cryptocurrency trading. There are people who want to be day traders but that will not reap much benefit as it is in the short-run. The prices can rise and decline due to the factors of demand and supply of the cryptocurrency. In this industry just like in any other investment, the general rule of the thumb is to risk what you can afford to lose. Your investments goals determine the path you take and the capital you choose to risk. You don’t necessarily need to buy whole Bitcoin, you can buy in small portions divided in decimals. In some exchanges, you can select short orders that allow you to hedge against the risk of losing your entire investment. For example, a simple strategy would be to have 85% long and 15% short, a strategy that assumes that you are more confident in a long position. 3.    Get into Trading This is where you get involved in actual trading. Follow news, blogs, and other information sources to know more about cryptocurrency and to make the appropriate decisions at the appropriate time depending on the movement of prices. Bottom Line Cryptocurrencies are the future of currencies and soon it will become a mainstream currency. Cryptocurrency can also be mined. Investors can seek more information on the best Cloud mining sites where they can mine without owning or setting-up the mining hardware. Do an in-depth research on the genuine sites as there are so many scam sites out there.
