The Success Of Constellation Brands In Focusing On The Beer Industry
Despite the fact that the overall US beer sales volume decreased as a result of the pandemic, Constellation Brands maintained its revenue’s strong uptrend track record. Despite a strong top line and growing EBITDA, it suffered losses from its unconsolidated investment particularly on its Canopy. However, the Canopy segment has seen a significant rise in revenue. This stock is trading cheaply at 56.6x earnings and 21.1x forward earnings.

Constellation Brands Undervalued, As It Continues To Gain Share
Constellation Brands posted better than expected FQ1 results, as weaker beer shipments were offset by healthy margins and stronger depletions. Operating leverage in the beer business may be challenging in the near term given cost headwinds, increasing promotional expense, and the need to add more capacity. Constellation's beer portfolio continues to outgrow the broader category as brands like Modelo Especial and Pacifico gain share, but Corona seltzer's share has stalled recently in a fast-growing category. If Constellation can generate 6% long-term revenue growth and 8% FCF growth, the shares look attractively undervalued today.
