OrganiGram Holdings is Down a Whopping 13%, but Why?

Organigram Holdings

There has been quite the sell-off of OrganiGram Holdings (TSXV:OGI) (OTCQX:OGRMF) stock since the beginning of this week. The company has had a massive fall from grace, dropping from $5.66 USD on Monday, to today’s current price of $4.31.

And the stock continues to drop; down almost 13% on the day. There is no particular reason for this fall other than a market-wide correction. Other major names are also down; Aphria (TSX:APHA) (NYSE:APHA) has dropped 16% today, for example. So the marijuana stock market is having a ‘bad week.’ These happen. What’s important is that business is still booming for OrganiGram.

And as is the current situation for others in the field, business operations are actually going the opposite way than the stock. Case in point, OrganiGram recently announced further expansion of its distribution footprint. The company has become an official cannabis supplier for the province of Saskatchewan. It has officially completed the registration process with the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority.

Tim Emberg, Senior Vice President of Sales and Commercial Operations of OrganiGram Holdings, said the following:

The news actually benefited OGI stock trading volume, boosting it 21% above its average volume levels.
