Credit Suisse starts Household Products & Beverages with Constellation top pick
Credit Suisse analyst Kaumil Gajrawala rolled out coverage last night on eight names in the Household Products & Beverages space. The analyst's ratings consist of three Outperforms, two Underperforms, and three Neutrals. His top pick is Constellation Brands (STZ), which he started with an Outperform rating and $230 price target. The company offers "predictable" high-single digit revenue growth with a valuation that is "well below slower growth peers," Gajrawala tells investors in a research note. His other Outperform ratings are on Monster Beverage (MNST) and Clorox (CLX). The analyst has a $78 price target on Monster, noting it is the fastest growing company in his coverage "with runway for continued growth." He has a $172 price target on Clorox saying the company's "unique" portfolio position justifies a premium valuation. Gajrawala's Neutral rated names are Church & Dwight (CHD), Procter & Gamble (PG) and Coca-Cola (KO). His two Underperforms are PepsiCo (PEP) and Colgate-Palmolive (CL). PepsiCo has a $100 price target as the analyst sees limited upside amid the company's "stepped-up" investment years. Colgate-Palmolive, Gajrawala's less favorite name, has a $55 price target. The company's out-year margins are at risk as it reinvests to address several years of slowing growth and sales declines, Gajrawala contends.

Buy
Hypothetical Bang sale more negative than positive for Monster, says Stifel
Stifel analyst Mark Astrachan examined the hypothetical impact on Monster Beverage (MNST) should a larger beverages competitor acquire Bang, though he noted he has no knowledge of M&A negotiations or discussions with the energy drink competitor. He ultimately concluded a potential acquisition of Bang would be more negative than positive for Monster, though he also noted that risks of an acquisition include potential disruption of Bang's recent momentum, especially if it were to be acquired by PepsiCo (PEP) and transition distribution most likely in-house from the AB InBev (BUD) system. Additionally, a theoretical Bang deal could accelerate a decision by Coca-Cola (KO) regarding acquiring, or not, the remaining shares in Monster it does not currently own, said Astrachan, who keeps a Buy rating and $67 price target on Monster Beverage shares.

Morgan Stanley downgrades Keurig Dr Pepper to Underweight on coffee risk
As previously reported, Morgan Stanley analyst Dara Mohsenian downgraded Keurig Dr Pepper to Underweight from Equal Weight as he sees a negative risk-reward despite a "well telegraphed" Q1 earnings beat on strong pricing at heritage Dr. Pepper Snapple. Based on the firm's recent AlphaWise survey, the analyst sees risk to coffee growth, noting that his forecast of around 1.5% is below the market-implied 4% long-term coffee topline growth, which is a key driver of his EPS forecast by 2021 being 5% below consensus. Additionally, Keurig Dr Pepper shares trade at a premium to the average of beverage peers Coca-Cola (KO) and PepsiCo (PEP) despite lower expected long-term topline growth, Mohsenian noted. He cut his price target on Keurig Dr Pepper shares to $24 from $27.
