Company Report

Green Shoots of Optimism Visible in ABI's Third Quarter

Anheuser-Busch InBev, or AB InBev, has been acquisitive, having made transformative deals for Interbrew and Anheuser-Busch, and more recently acquiring Grupo Modelo, Oriental Brewery, and SABMiller. Management's strategy is to buy brands with a promising growth platform, expand distribution, and ruthlessly squeeze costs from the business.

Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

AB InBev's worldwide scale and distribution is massive. Its top 20 brands each generate more than $1 billion per year in sales.

Bears

The company's flagship Budweiser brand and sister brand Bud Light are both facing meaningful headwinds in the U.S. from craft and imported brands.
