Earnings: Canopy Growth posts big Q4 miss, but investors remain stoic

Canopy Growth (NYSE: CGC) reported a loss of CAD 0.98 per share on revenues of CAD 94.1 million in the fourth quarter, which missed analysts’ predictions. Analysts had expected the marijuana company to post a narrower loss of CAD 0.23 per share on revenue of CAD 99.23 million in Q4.
