Money Morning first took a look at Neptune at the end of 2018, and it was much different than the picture we see today. Last year, we saw a company that had been in business for 20 years that was still having trouble turning a profit.
The company specializes in nutraceutical oils derived from marine animals, such as krill and cod. Extraction is its core competency, but it provides this service primarily as a third-party, with few branded products of its own.
In the past five years, the company has only raised about $76.6 million in proceeds from inventory sales, the sale of intellectual property, and equity offerings. It hasn't had many profitable years, but it began to re-focus its efforts in 2018.
Neptune started focusing its extraction expertise on the cannabis sector last year, producing extracts made from marijuana. While it was off to a slow start, the growth so far this year has been anything but tortoise-like.
Since the beginning of 2019, the NEPT share price has soared 123%, and it has gone up nearly 40% since July 9.
These are fantastic gains for what has become a hot weed stock, but they are only the beginning. Now that the company has announced a major leadership shake-up and some new deals with big players in the marijuana industry, this stock is positioned to skyrocket in the coming months.
