On Monday, February 26th, Amber Mironov pitched Constellation Brands, Inc. (NYSE: STZ) to add to the Consumer Staples Sector holdings. Amber outlined Constellation Brands as a well-diversified, market leading alcoholic beverage company with promising growth prospects and shareholder returns driven by a strong leadership team. Recent acquisitions of high growth companies have allowed Constellation to further diversify and profit from new trends in the industry. Investments in the high-growth craft beer market have favorably positioned the company to grow rapidly in the coming years. Future growth will be driven by Constellation’s focus on innovation with new products, new packaging, and line extensions along with its expansion of breweries. Favorable demographics, powerful brand presence, distribution opportunities, and innovation are key drivers for Constellation’s future. Given its first mover advantage with investment in the Canadian marijuana industry, Constellation Brands will reap the benefits that are expected with legalization of the drug in 2019. Further, once the industry expands internationally, as many analysts and company executives predict, Constellation Brands will be well positioned to take advantage of industry growth. Amber proposed to buy 35 shares of STZ and sell 40 shares of XLP and 20 shares of SPY to fund the transaction. The motion passed unanimously.
