Category: Investment, Beverage

Visit: Constellation Brands Inc.

Point Roberts, WA - February 21, 2013 ( newswire) staff:, an investor research portal specializing in sector research for independent investors reports on wine and beverage stocks trading for February 21st, 2013.

Constellation Brands Inc., (NYSE:STZ) trading at $42.42 gained $0.62 or 1.48% on a high volume of 6,695,301 and is today's top beverage stock to watch.

Shares of Constellation Brands rose earlier today amid raised hopes of a favorable conclusion to a courtroom battle with the Department of Justice over the $20.1 billion sale of Corona maker Grupo Modelo.

Yesterday Constellation, Anheuser-Busch InBev and the DOJ agreed to request a stay of all litigation proceedings on the Modelo matter until March 19 as they continue to negotiate a settlement.

Constellation's stock plummeted around 20% after the DOJ filed suit on January 31 to block AB InBev's $20.1 billion deal to take full control of Corona maker Grupo Modelo by acquiring Constellation's 50% stake.

Regulators fear the deal would end up hurting competition and lead to higher prices on consumers by marrying brands like Budweiser and Stella Artois with Corona Extra and Modelo Especial.

In an effort to alleviate those concerns, last week AB InBev said it would be willing to unload Modelo's Piedras Negras Mexican brewery to Constellation and grant it perpetual rights for Corona and other Modelo brands in the U.S. for $2.9 billion. Newswire

Boston Beer's revenue of $153.0 million met with the four analysts polled by S&P Capital IQ and their estimated $152.5 million. GAAP reported sales were 7.7% higher than the prior-year quarter's $142.1 million.

The company has also announced its upcoming expansion into cans, which will begin with Boston Lager and its seasonal Summer Ale beer. Summer Ale is typically available from March through July. Boston Beer has announced summer 2013 as a tentative release date where beer will be available in 12 packs for a suggested retail price of $14.99 to $17.99.

The canning program, which has been in development for over a year to ensure proper quality of the finished product, will open up several new revenue sources for the craft brew company. Canned beer will now allow Sam Adams fans and new drinkers to enjoy the beers in sports arenas, on airlines, on beaches, and other places which will allow Sam Adams to compete more directly with larger beer brands such as AB Inbev, Molson Coors, and SAB Miller.
