Aurora Cannabis Inc (OTCMKTS:ACBFF) has been a consistent leadership play in the Canadian cannabis patch over the past 12-18 months. No one would dare argue otherwise. The stock has managed to hold its recent strong breakout gains in a lateral consolidation that has traced out a symmetrical triangle pattern on the chart since Thanksgiving. The consolidative pattern follows a powerful thrust higher that elevated shares by nearly 190% in just under three weeks. One of the primary qualities on display in that time is the company’s ability to continuously present one material catalyst after another.
As a case in point, Aurora just cut a deal with CannaRoyalty Corp. (OTCQX: CNNRF) this week, as the two companies announced that they have signed a binding Letter of Intent, giving Aurora the exclusive right for 90 days to negotiate a final licensing agreement related to exclusive rights to “the intellectual property, manufacturing procedures, and the sales and marketing rights related to a portfolio of specialty branded cannabis drug delivery technologies from the award-winning MüV brand” in Canada, Europe and Australia.
