DON'T BUY
Allan Tong’s Discover Picks Unfortunately, SAM has missed all of its last four quarters, and they were wide misses. Its EPS is $-4.31 and worse, has declined 123.17% over the past year. SAM’s PE is -85.1x and profit margin is a woeful -2.73%. In Q1, shipment volumes fell 25% YOY as demand decreased. Revenue fell 21% in the quarter and its gross margin slipped from 45.8% to 40.2% YOY. The company has weak pricing power in a highly competitive business. Lots of negatives among its fundamentals. No surprise that Sam pays no dividend. The street feels lukewarm towards SAM stocks with five buys and six holds with a $442.90 price target or 23% higher. But will it get there?

DON'T BUY
Incredible run through the pandemic. Starting to have significant cost pressures, without the ability to pass costs along. A couple of weak quarters. Every time the stock rallies, you have sellers bailing. He wouldn't touch it, too much damage to the technical chart.

BUY on WEAKNESS
Hard seltzer's growth isn't sustainable, though the street believes it. The stock has pulled back, but still isn't cheap. He sees low-single-digit growth in the sector for a while. He'd wait for this to pull back even more.

TOP PICK
Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly SAM is a US based beer company best known under the Samuel Adams brand. They have been expanding their product offering into new seltzer products that are driving up earnings. It trades at 51x earnings above peers at 46x, however, with EPS expected by analysts to grow annually at over 40% over the next five years, it is valued more like 29x earnings. The high growth in earnings puts the PEG ratio at 1.3. We also like that is continuing to grow cash reserves. We would buy this with a stop loss at $800, looking to achieve $1386 -- upside over 45%. Yield 0% (Analysts’ price target is $1386.00)

HOLD
Allan Tong’s Discover Picks SAM stock has also run up a lot this year so far, soaring 31% YTD by mid-April, but since plunging to to 6% YTD last week. Based on this metric, I would rule out SAM, but just last week, the company announced a Canadian pilot program to eventually launch non-alcoholic cannabis drinks. Details are few, but this program is one to watch. Despite its manic run, Boston Beer still outperforms Constellation YTD at 12% to 7%, and the stocks are starting to diverge again. Wall Street likes (but doesn’t love) SAM by awarding it six buys but also five holds and projects 26% upside to $1,396.30. Read 2 Top American Beer Stocks for our full analysis.

BUY
They report Thursday. The shorts, as they always do, will lean against SAM, because of their competition. SAM should do just fine, he thinks.
Consumer Products
WEAK BUY
They report Wednesday. They sell a red-hot hard seltzer. If another competitor comes out with their own seltzer, it may be too much for SAM to handle, but they have enough momentum against their peers. He expects them to report another good quarter, though the field is getting crowded.
Consumer Products
PARTIAL SELL
It has thrived during Covid, even with most bars closed. Their hard seltzer product has excelled. SAM just reported a great quarter ($6.51 EPS vs. estimated $4.50) so the stock spiked 19% today. Take profits.
Consumer Products
BUY on WEAKNESS

She likes the beverage sector. We maybe missed this opportunity. It has gone down so much, but it is still 25 times earnings. She likes it cheaper. Buy at $100 a share. It is too rich to be taken out.

Consumer Products
TOP PICK
Has been a lot of consolidation of beer companies globally and beer is starting to taste the same. They have a good quality product. Own about 20%-25% of the craft beer market. They win a lot of awards. Strong fundamentals.
