    By Shmulik Karpf - July 22, 2013 | Tickers: BF-B, STZ, DEO | Editor's Choice

    There aren't many consumer products that sell well in good and bad times alike. Coca-Cola, for instance, is a good example of such a consumer product. People will consume the sugary carbonated water whether the economy prospers or not. Wine and spirits are another good example for an "all- weather" beverage. When times are good, people might spend more on fancy wines. But when recession looms, people simply won more »

  • Constellation Brands Fails To Impress Investors

    By Jacob Steinberg - July 3, 2013 | Tickers: BUD, BEAM, STZ

    Constellation Brands (NYSE: STZ) saw its earnings fall by 27% in the last quarter due to restructuring costs which led to a sell-off in the company's stock. In addition, the company announced an increase in its revenues due to higher demand on products like Corona and Modelo Especial.

  • Earnings Preview: Constellation

    By tarun bachhawat - July 1, 2013 | Tickers: BUD, STZ

    I have always believed that a company’s earnings should meet realistic investors’ expectations to support the movement in stock prices. If it is not so, then the company’s stock cannot sustain an upsurge based only on investor sentiment for long. With Constellation Brands (NYSE: STZ) about to release its earnings on July 2, the only thought that crosses my mind is whether or not it will be able more »

    Constellation Brands (NYSE: STZ) recently acquired the U.S. beer business of Grupo Modelo from Anheuser-Busch (NYSE: BUD) for $4.75 billion. Is this a good deal or a bad one, and how will if affect the stock price going forward?  

    Constellation Brands is kind of a big deal

    Al Capone proved that distilleries and liquors are here to stay…and profit. The USA prohibition left us with a great, yet simple lesson: there is no political movement or economic crisis strong enough to break the back of the alcoholic beverages market.

  • The Secret Company You Should Be Buying

    By Sean Sullivan - May 7, 2013 | Tickers: BUD, STZ, SAB

    Anheuser-Busch InBev (NYSE: BUD) and SABMiller (LSE: SAB) are the two-biggest beer companies in the United States. But a company that doesn't currently sell beer will soon be the third-largest beer company in America.

    Beer consumption in the US, after being hammered by the recession, is beginning to grow again. Fourth-quarter shipments rose 1.5% compared to the previous year. 

    Anheuser-Busch InBev saw its profits decline in the fourth more »

    By Karl Ege - May 6, 2013 | Tickers: BEAM, BF-B, STZ, VCO

    For more than one decade from 1992 to 2005, Constellation’s stock performance proved truly impressive and a boon to shareholders. From 2005 until May 2012, however, its performance turned negative producing a 34% slide ending the preceding shining glory. Following the announcement of a potential deal with Anheuser Busch that would give control of the production of Corona (and other Modelo beers sold in the US) to Constellation, the more »

    By Marie Flanigan - April 24, 2013 | Tickers: BEAM, BF-B, STZ

    My last blog post about beer, available here, got me thinking about other options for investing in companies that manufacture and/or distribute beer, wine, and liquor. Not surprisingly, most vineyards, breweries, and distilleries are privately owned. However, there are some options for investors to consider.

    As with beer, wine and spirits are good for all occasions whether sad or joyous, so these companies can be good, solid, long-term investments more »

    By Tedra DeSue - April 12, 2013 | Tickers: BUD, SAM, STZ

    In a deal that will reshape the beer, wine and spirits industry, as well as boost the shareholder value of some of industry players, Anheuser Busch InBev (NYSE: BUD) is within a month of finalizing a deal that was almost derailed by antitrust concerns.

  • Investors Are Getting Drunk on These Stocks

    By Ted Cooper - April 12, 2013 | Tickers: BF-B, STZ, DEO

    With the bull market now in full swing, investors are looking for the last hint of value in every corner of the investment universe. Unfortunately, value is hard to come by these days. Instead, investors are bidding up prices well above companies' intrinsic values. One industry in particular -- wine and spirits manufacturing -- is currently approaching too-high-to-justify prices. Investors would be wise to exit their positions in these stocks before the more »

    Last summer, I outlined five wine and spirit producers poised to capitalize on strong growth trends. Over the past eight months, this thesis has begun to play out. Each of the five stocks has increased in value over that period, and as a group the five have outperformed the S&P 500 by a comfortable margin thanks in part to the strong performance by Constellation Brands (NYSE: STZ).

    By Robert Hanley - March 22, 2013 | Tickers: BUD, SAM, STZ

    Constellation Brands (NYSE: STZ) has spent the past decade transforming itself from a sleepy, regional wine maker into the world’s largest premium wine company, with well-known brands that include Robert Mondavi and Ruffino. From 2009 through 2011, the company sold off its value-priced spirits and wine operations, while reinvesting the funds into the premium-priced beer and wine category, an area that continues to win a larger percentage of the more »

  • Constellation Brands: Stock Poised to Go Higher

    By Marivic Cabural - March 1, 2013 | Tickers: BUD, STZ, GPMCY

    Early this month, the United States Department of Justice blocked the agreement of Anheuser-Busch InBev (NYSE: BUD) to acquire the remaining 50% stake it does not already own in Grupo Modelo (NASDAQOTH: GPMCY) citing that the deal is harmful to consumers because it would undermine the existing head-to-head competition in the beer industry. The agency argued the deal violates antitrust laws. In my previous blog, I mentioned that AB InBev more »
