Constellation Brands announces closing of $4B investment in Canopy Growth

Constellation Brands (STZ, STZ.B) and Canopy Growth (CGC) announced the closing of Constellation's $4B investment in Canopy Growth, which was previously announced on August 15. The transaction was approved by an overwhelming majority of Canopy Growth shareholders and has been granted all required regulatory approvals, including by the Canadian government under the Investment Canada Act. With this investment, Constellation Brands increases its ownership interest in Canopy Growth to approximately 37% of outstanding common shares of Canopy Growth and has appointed two members of its executive team, as well as two independent directors, to the Board of Directors of Canopy Growth. Constellation estimates the interest expense associated with this transaction to approximate $55M before tax with an approximate 25c impact on fiscal 2019 comparable basis EPS results. Constellation also continues to evaluate the potential equity in earnings impact from the Canopy Growth investment and related items."Our cash position opens up a world of opportunity for us," said Bruce Linton, chairman and co-chief executive officer, Canopy Growth. "Relative to our valuation, we have never been in a better position to create shareholder value. This investment was a landmark moment for the entire sector when it was announced. Now that the capital is Canopy's to deploy, we're going to quickly get to work increasing our lead by adding strategic assets around the world."

Morgan Stanley says pot legalization could pose risk to Canadian auto insurers
Morgan Stanley analyst Kai Pan noted that academic studies do not agree on the potential impact on car accidents from legalized recreational use of marijuana, but he still believes Canada's legalization could pose a risk to Canadian auto insurers. IFC, the largest auto insurer in Canada, is not immune to this challenge but given its long-term outperformance versus peers and strong claims management, Pan thinks the company should be better positioned in addressing this challenge, he tells investors. Publicly traded companies in the cannabis space include Aurora Cannabis (ACBFF), CV Sciences (CVSI), CannTrust Holdings (CNTTF), Canopy Growth (CGC), Cronos Group (CRON), General Cannabis (CANN), India Globalization Capital (IGC) and Tilray (TLRY).

Scotiabank calls Aphria best play in cannabis, starts with Outperform rating
Scotiabank analyst Oliver Rowe initiated coverage of Aphria (APHQF) with an Outperform rating and C$25 price target. Aphria is building one of the largest cannabis production platforms in Canada and internationally, Rowe tells investors in a research note on the cannabis sector titled "Growing for the Future." He notes the company intends to focus on "perfecting" large-scale production economics to generate high industry margins in the Canadian medical and recreational markets. The analyst views the company as the best way to play the cannabis space in his "limited coverage universe." Rowe this morning also initiated Canopy Growth (CGC) with a Sector Perform rating and C$61 price target. He views the company's growth story as "superb" but finds the valuation full at current share levels.

Sector Perform
Canopy Growth initiated with a Sector Perform at Scotiabank
Scotiabank analyst Oliver Rowe initiated Canopy Growth with a Sector Perform rating and C$61 price target. While Canopy is the dominant Canadian player and global leader in the rapidly evolving cannabis space, giving it a first-mover advantage and potential to be the largest global producer of legal cannabis, he thinks the stock is fully valued. Given its relationship with Constellation Brands (STZ), Rowe believes Canopy is well positioned to enter the cannabis-based beverage market, but he also thinks Canopy ultimately "wants to build brands, not production." Canopy's product development and branding will yield significantly more value for investors than simply an agreement to provide the product, added Rowe.

Demand for adult use cannabis 'seemingly strong' in Canada, says Cowen
Citing her analysis of e-commerce platforms for adult use cannabis in Canada, Cowen analyst Vivien Azer remains encouraged to see "seemingly strong demand" as well as some instances of improved supply. In a research note pre-market open, the analyst notes she aggregated 533 product offerings with 1,149 SKUs from the e-commerce platforms for Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario, New Brunswick, and Newfoundland and Labrador. Overall, SKU stockout rates across the provinces were flat versus last week at 57%, although remains above the 46% rate during the prior week, Azer adds. Her view of the data is a modest positive for Canopy Growth (CGC), which has the second highest number of SKUs and out of stock rates declined from 65% to 54% while adding 16 SKUs this week. The read-through on Tilray (TLRY) is less clear, Azer contends, as the only three provinces where the company did not get supply agreements were all in her five province survey universe. The analyst reiterated an Outperform rating on Canopy Growth and Tilray.

Constellation Brands strong results to reverse in Q3, says Guggenheim
Guggenheim analyst Laurent Grandet said Constellation Brands' (STZ) Q2 results were typically strong but driven by one-time benefits that will reverse in Q3, and low-quality operational items. Grandet believes beer growth is decelerating with Corona Premier and Familiar cannibalizing the core range and fails to see the next big growth driver. The analyst also said Constellation's investment in Canopy (CGC) makes shares riskier to own. Grandet rates Constellation Brands a Sell with a $180 price target, up from $177.

Pivotal Research analyst Timothy Ramsey said Constellation Brands reported a "beautiful quarter" and that its core business is "growing faster than anyone believed." In terms of its investment in Canopy Growth (CGC), Ramsey said that is "very likely a masterstroke." He raised his estimates for Constellation on the heels of the report, increased his price target to $300 and keeps a Buy rating on the shares.

Morgan Stanley raises Constellation Brands target to $259 on better beer margins
Morgan Stanley analyst Dara Mohsenian, in a new note to investors, repeated his previously expressed beliefs that the market is not appropriately recognizing Constellation Brands' strong long-term growth prospects in beer and that negative sentiment around the company's investment in Canopy Growth (CGC) has been "overblown." The analyst, who sees scope for material improvement in beer operating margin performance starting in the second half of 2019, reiterates his Overweight rating on Constellation and raised his price target on the shares to $259 from $255.

Constellation CEO change does not alter bullish view, says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Kevin Grundy says the CEO change at Constellation Brands does not impact his bullish thesis. He keeps a Buy rating on the shares with a $289 price target. While likely a bit earlier than the market anticipated, Bill Newlands appeared to be the clear successor to Rob Sands when he was named President earlier this year, Grundy tells investors in a research note. The analyst says Constellation remains his top large cap growth idea.
