In July 2018, Tilray became the first pure-play cannabis company to go public on a major US stock exchange, floating its shares on the Nasdaq exchange at a price of $17 per share. In its first day of trading, the company's stock gained more than 30 per cent, closing at $22.39. But after experiencing a stellar rise to $300 per share by September 19, 2018, it entered a downtrend. With the exception of occasional upside fluctuations, the Tilray stock price was falling steadily, bottoming out at $2.43 in March 2020 in the market’s initial reaction to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Throughout 2020, TLRY stock had mainly traded below the $10 per share level, closing the year at $9 per share. In January 2021, the share price doubled from $9 to $18, soaring to close at $63.91 per share on February 10. The rally was driven by the warming political landscape for cannabis producers, as well as Reddit-backed retail investors who, at that time, short-squeezed a number of stocks, including GameStop (GME) and AMC Entertainment (AMC). The momentum was short-lived and by February 12, 2021, TRLY shares closed the trading session at $29.
