Bristol-Myers Squibb (NYSE:BMY) is a global biopharmaceutical company with leading franchises in oncology, immunoscience and cardiovascular drugs. Long-time shareholders may recall a successful Bristol-Myers Squibb investment that we sold in 2013. We got another opportunity to own this company during the past quarter when investors became fearful that a competing drug would take share in the cancer market. We believe these fears are overstated because cancer remains a dangerous disease that is difficult to treat. The company’s two most valuable drugs Opdivo and Yervoy should continue to grow revenue as they maintain effectiveness with new tumor types. Bristol Myers Squibb also has the most new molecular agents and the highest number of combinations of agents in trials. Moreover, the company’s R&D and marketing prowess also make it a desired partner for promising academic and small biotech innovators. Collectively, these assets should assure Bristol-Myers Squibb’s oncology leadership for many years. We believe intrinsic value is closer to the $70 level it traded for earlier this year than its more recent price in the low $50s.

The three companies we consider most potent for future growth in value are Canopy Growth Corp. (NYSE:CGC), Aurora Cannabis (OTCQX:ACBFF), and Aphria (OTCQB:APHQF). Canopy is a diversified cannabis company that both produces and sells cannabis products for the Canadian medical cannabis market. The company is well-positioned to start growing for recreational use once it becomes legal. Aurora’s focus is also on both growing and selling medical cannabis and produces both psychoactive THC products and medically oriented CBD products. It has an aggressive growth and acquisition strategy, also having conducted the largest acquisition in the cannabis industry when acquiring CanniMed Therapeutics earlier this year. Aphria is another grower and seller of medical marijuana, which conducts its sales through retail stores and wholesale distribution. All three companies have well-positioned themselves in the Canadian market and could be potential target companies for Big Tobacco or Big Alcohol or turn into major market leaders.

Other Canadian marijuana growers could also jump into the fray. Last month, BNN Bloomberg reported that Molson Coors (NYSE:TAP) was in discussions with several Canadian companies, including Aurora Cannabis (NASDAQOTH:ACBFF) and Aphria (NASDAQOTH:APHQF), about collaborating on cannabis-infused beverages. The report also indicated that Molson Coors was potentially interested in investing in a Canadian marijuana grower, as Constellation Brands did.
