As previously reported, BofA Merrill Lynch analyst Bryan Spillane downgraded Molson Coors (TAP) two notches, to Underperform from Buy, citing the heightened potential he sees that the company will need to increase spending to stabilize core brands' market share and invest in premium and "beyond" beer segments. To support his view, Spillane notes that Molson Coors has continued to lose market share in FY19 as competitors such as AB InBev (BUD), Heineken (HEINY), Constellation (STZ) and Boston Beer (SAM) have increased marketing/brand support and that products like hard seltzers and canned wine pose further risk to domestic light beer. He lowered his price target on Molson Coors shares to $50 from $70.
