Is General Cannabis undervalued compared to its fair value and its price relative to the market?


In this section, we usually try to help investors determine whether General Cannabis is trading at an attractive price based on the cash flow it is expected to produce in the future.

This is quite a rare situation as 89% of companies covered by Simply Wall St do have a valuation analysis.
