Constellation Brands - Barchart"S Chart Of The Day

|Includes:Constellation Brands, Inc. (STZ)

The Chart of the Day is Constellation Brands (NYSE:STZ). I found the company by sorting the All Time High list for new high frequency in the last month. I skipped any stocks not having a positive gain for the last week and month then used the Flipchart feature to review the charts. Since the Trend spotter signaled a buy on 1/8 the stock is up 9.58%.

STZ is a leading international producer and marketer of beverage alcohol brands, with a broad portfolio across the wine, spirits and imported beer categories. The Company is the largest multi-category supplier of beverage alcohol in the United States; a leading producer and exporter of wine from Australia and New Zealand; and both a major producer and independent drinks wholesaler in the United Kingdom. Well-known brands in Constellation's portfolio include: Corona Extra, Pacifico, St. Pauli Girl, Black Velvet, and Fleischmann's.
