Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

Premiumization trends in spirits consumption, coupled with Brown-Forman’s strong innovation pipeline, bode well for mid- to high-single-digit top-line growth in the coming years.

Bears

Brown-Forman is less diversified in category exposure compared with larger rivals Diageo and Pernod and could therefore be more susceptible to volume swings should demand soften for its core American whiskey products.
