Aurora Cannabis earnings show big growth in pot sales, but worrisome profit trend

Aurora Cannabis Inc. nearly quadrupled its revenue and claimed a strong market share in an earnings report Monday that detailed the first quarter of legal recreational-pot sales in Canada, but also showed off large losses and a shrinking margin.
