Top Beverage Companies for 2018.
Top 40 Beer, Wine, Booze and Soft-Drink Companies Revealed.
Chicago IL / Beverage News Wire / November 30, 2017 / Institutional Analyst Inc. (IA) announced today it released the 2018 Beverage Stock Watch List and participated in the launch of the Beverage Start-Up News, the most comprehensive financial portal and newsletter today on Wall Street covering Crowdfunded Companies, in the beverage industry – a first of its kind.
IA is an independent investment research firm founded in 1998 with the launch of the ‘Internet Stock Review,’ which additionally provides coverage for companies in a number of distinct industries including; Biotech, Alternative Energy, Special Situations and Private Equity.
“Our research efforts will continue to cover soft drinks, brewers, wineries, and distillers of all sizes – both here and abroad,” stated Roland Rick Perry, Managing Director of IA.
“Investors from across the country and abroad are on a never-ending search for the next Vitamin Water which was acquired by Coca-Cola for $4.1 billion in cash, or a CasaAmigos, which launched in 2013 by industry outsiders and sold for an eye-poping $700 million, four years later. So the watch list is not shy of adding long-shot start-ups to the Watch List.
The Beverage Stock Review (BSR) was created as a starting point to help investors searching for the ‘next big thing’. Its 2015 list included some incredible winners including an obscure West Coast craft-brewer called American Brewing. It later changed its name to New Age Beverages and rose from a mere $0.31, to a peak price of $7.20 giving its early shareholders, a welcome gain in excess of 2000%. Making the it the #1 performing beverage company in any category during the time period.
On the East Coast BSR discovered Celsius Holdings, a functional energy drink maker which rose from $0.99 to $7.00, providing a seven-fold gain for its happy shareholders, with a peak valuation exceeding $300 million. Of course not every company flourished, with the makers of Wodka Vodka, Montalvo Tequila, and Birch Tree Water effectively disappearing or going private like Eldorado Springs Water.
On the flip side, billion-dollar Corporations weren’t ignored on the 2018 Watch List as ‘too big’ and well-known to provide outsized market performance. Few Companies in any industry have performed as well as Constellation Brands, which is behind brands such as Corona Beer and Modelo Beer, Black Box and Clos Du Bois Wine, SVEDKA Vodka, Black Velvet Whiskey and Casa Noble Tequila. In the last ten years, the share price has increased from $10.66 in November of 2008 – to $214. Who needs Bitcoin?
