  • Constellation Brands - Barchart"S Chart Of The Day 0 comments
    Mar 11, 2014 7:15 AM | about stocks: 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.

    Barchart technical indicators:

    • Trend Spotter buy signal
    • Above its 20, 50 and 100 day moving averages
    • 15 new highs and up 8.93% in the last month

    • Barchart computes a technical support level at 82.78%
    • Recently traded at 83.95 with a 50 day moving average of 77.86

    Fundamental factors:


    • Market Cap $15.90 billion
    • P/E 28.81
    • Revenue projected to grow 74.00% this year and another 22.30% next year
    • Earnings estimated to increase 45.70% this year, an additional 23.80% next year and continue to increase at an annual rate of 14.80% for the next 5 years
    • Wall Street analysts issued 4 strong buy, 4 buy, 2 hold and 2 under perform recommendations on the stock
    • Financial strength is B+

    As long as the world keeps drinking this stock should hold up nicely. Use the 50 day moving average for a sign of weakness and the 100 day moving average for an exit point.
