Corona Brewer Invests $4 Billion in Cannabis

Corona Brewer Invests $4 Billion in Cannabis Constellation Brands, the maker of Corona, thinks that the marijuana industry is a pretty good bet. Last year, Constellation first invested in the cannabis company Canopy Growth, buying in at a 10% stake. Constellation recently decided that they wanted a bigger piece of the pie, so they invested another $4 billion in Canopy Growth, bringing their holdings to 38%. Shares of Canopy (CGC) trade on both the New York Stock Exchange and Toronto Stock Exchange. OCG shares soared after the news of Constellation's investment, but Constellation's stock fell almost 6% after the move.
