  • AFCG is a small cap mortgage REIT focused on lending to businesses in the cannabis industry.
  • This might be a turn-off for some, but the complexity allows AFCG to get double-digit yields on their loan portfolio.
  • The external management is another thing to be aware of, but the insider ownership is high.
  • The company focuses on limited license jurisdictions to help reduce their risk.
  • Shares trade near book value, and I think the risk/reward is skewed to the upside.

It's been a while since I wrote an article on AFC Gamma (NASDAQ:AFCG). Since May, shares have basically chopped sideways (while paying out two $0.56 quarterly dividends), but I figured it was high time that I wrote an update on this cannabis
