GRWG) managed to close in the green, with gains of 24%. This still meant giving up some of the gains accrued between Aug. 12 and Aug. 19.

The rally started last Friday when the grow supplies company reported its second-quarter financial results, establishing a new revenue record for the tenth consecutive quarter.

GrowGeneration continued to spike on Monday after Jim Cramer interviewed CEO Darren Lampert on CNBC, describing its business model as the “most exciting” he’s seen in retail.

Following a five-day rally, GrowGeneration’s stock hit a peak of $22.30 on Wednesday, and commenced a small decline as excitement around its earnings wore off and some investors looked to take profits. On Friday, shares took a dive of more than 9% after Hindenburg Research published a report arguing the “Euphoric Retail Stock Has The Brightest Management Red Flags” that analysts have “ever seen,” saying downside surpasses 70%.

With CFL season scuttled, Bergman enjoys 'just being a dad'
With CFL season scuttled, Bergman enjoys 'just being a dad'
The silver lining for Norfolk County native Shane Bergman in COVID-19 upsetting plans for the 2020 Canadian Football League season is the extra time he got to spend with his nine-month-old son, Asher.

“I had no idea what was going on with those talks between the CFL and the federal government,” said the offensive lineman for the Calgary Stampeders. “I didn’t know about the final decision but I thought it was going (to be cancelled) just because it took so long. It was inevitable.”
