  • Constellation Brands Inc. (STZ): Synthetic Long Working 04.07.13 0 comments
    Apr 7, 2013 3:19 PM | about stocks: BUD, STZ


    Put on a synthetic long: short April $47.50 puts and long April $50 calls. Should be working on Monday: $STZ shares at over $49.3 after hours on 04.05.13.

    Department of Justice gave, per WSJ 04.05.13 evening, approval of the Constellation Brands acceptance of marketing/distribution of Corona/Modelo in the U.S.

    BUD takes commanding lead, however, in the beer market. This is great news for $STZ shareholders. Corona is a growing brand in the growing Hispanic U.S. population.


    Disclosure: I am long STZ, BUD.

    Additional disclosure: synthetic longs in STZ

    Stocks: BUD, STZ
