Tilray Inc (TLRY) on Nasdaq

Hi all - Please note as of 9am on the 20th Sept this stock is currently 'unborrowable' which means that you won't be able to open a short position. This is because there is no 'borrow' in the underlying market itself, and is therefore a matter outside our control. You can check out the latest financials on this stock via this post.

Thanks @caseynotes - worth noting @technovator that you can give us a call if you wish us to manually check for borrow in the market. There are no guarantees, but it may be worth if you want to get the trade on. It may also be possible to trade against our inventory. 

For others reading this it's worth giving us a call if you're looking to get a short on when it's unborrowable in the markets. Cheers.

Hey all - please note that this stock has around 13% free float so could see significant volatility. Most stock is owned by a private equity firm and it looks like there is no borrow in the underlying market. 

As with all investments, speculations, trades and bets perform due diligence and act accordingly.

There are no farms in the world that have a market cap of 20bn. Tilray has not invented Weed and is not the only producer of Weed . So it is a totally irrational move for anyone that asks. but the parabolic move could last days and totally explode.

Yes Guest Marc, 'unborrowable' means there is no one willing to lend you the stock for you to short it (you can't sell what you don't have) though the status is fluid and may change off and on throughout the day. All the cannabis stocks have caught fire *cough* recently as they position for a grab at the world market. Bubbles don't come more pronounced than this but as you say you can't predict the top. Lovely weekly chart since listing in July.

That was an exciting hour for Tilray @PandaFace. Look at the 15 min chart and the absolute carnage of the sudden hyper expansion then bubble burst. The price action of the end of last week running up to today was pretty spectacular but was dwarfed by the explosive events of last night.

Morning all,

Below are the most recent ratios and earnings for TLRY hot off BBG this morning. Moves of the magnitude seen last night are extremely rare and, potentially unwarranted given fundamentals (as usual my opinion only, not advice etc etc.)

As it stands the shares desk have been able to secure exactly 0 borrow in this stock, they'll keep trying but looking increasingly unlikely. We do offer equity options (by phone) in hours on US shares, however premiums on puts are eye-watering ATM.

Will update if anything interesting pops up.

Cheers,

Ludwik

We've had a few questions on the phones relating to shorting, or more specifically why you can't short at the moment on this particular market. The below may be useful for those new to this market event of 'unborrowable'

Interesting comment from Joe Weisenthal on the combined market cap of the big three in relation to the actual size of the market.

Guest Mark

Given the circumstances, low float mostly held by the equity firm, the question is, is there one more spike up in the cards?
As I assume there are a lot of people trying to short now with the price falling and some other shorts keeping them in the hope to close way lower, there should be enough fuel still.
I do not think the situation changed much from the start of the week to today regarding the underlying situation.

Obviously the valuation is not sustainable, but that is not the important fact here, but shorts that cannot find shares to cover.

 

Opinions?
Have a nice weekend, everone!

    • yes @TrendFollower, there are plenty of long term investors with IG and it's right they should take notice and plan well ahead for any eventuality but traders should be thinking differently and look to be responsive to changes in market conditions. As in my previous post the big indices always look a bit toppy and it's too easy to get in short too soon. Back in 2016 there was talk of impending recession for most of the year and many new traders blew their accounts continually shorting the market trying to 'catch the big one', the get rich quick trade. It was depressing to watch.  Here's another interesting chart of S&P seasonal pattern of average return 1990-2018 suggesting uncertainty in the short term before resumption upward.
    • @Caseynotes, One must remember that on average it can take around 18 months from when the treasury yield curve flips or inverts to the start of a recession.  People talk about Dr. Copper but another commodity that it is worth keeping an eye on is Lumber. When housing construction begins to drop then that can be one of many indicators to have a look at. Others are inflation, interest rate direction, wage growth, unemployment, etc. There are many well documents indicators which signal a potential recession is around the corner.  From a trading perspective one should not worry as long as one is comfortable shorting. Those who are not may struggle to consistently make enough profits during a recessionary period. 
    • @Caseynotes, Yes that is right. I have seen some calling the recession for the past two to three years! They have been calling it as if it is around the corner. Then when it does not come they move the goal posts via obscure technical analysis. When one challenges it, one is deemed negative or a naysayer.  Corrections happen large and small. Investors sell investments to take profits. This has been happening since the markets began. Prices go up and down. Prices are bullish and bearish. Of course trading sentiment plays a big part but for me following the price action and letting the price action lead you to a trading decision is key. Trying to wait for the price action to follow your view and then changing the narrative by giving technical reasoning when it does not follow your view in my opinion will lead to missing out on trading opportunities.  For a sound trader, recessions, should not be feared but welcomed. If one understands how prices react during recessions then one can prepare their trading strategy for this outcome but for when it happens and not before.
