The Week’s Biggest Winner & Loser
In a week that saw nothing but red for the vast majority of the stock market, it’s impressive for a stock to finish slightly higher or even flat. However, Zillow (Z) outperformed remarkably – it closed the week up +6.57%, easily locking in the spot of the Week’s Biggest Winner.
All speculative, high-growth names got slammed again this week, and they don’t come growthier (pun intended) than the cannabis sector with GrowGeneration (GRWG) taking the crown as the Week’s Biggest Loser, down -17.19% for the week (and -63.45% Year-to-Date… ugh).
