“We expect investor focus with FQ1 EPS will likely be on Q1 beer depletion growth and June trends, as well as the FY22 EPS outlook, which we expect Constellation Brands (STZ) to reiterate,” noted Dara Mohsenian, equity analyst at Morgan Stanley.
“Our FQ1 EPS estimate is $2.40 (including Canopy equity income losses), slightly above Eikon consensus of $2.38, or $2.58 excluding Canopy vs. Visible Alpha consensus of $2.49. We expect the market to be most focused on beer depletion trends and margins in FQ1, but also more focused on the forward outlook including June depletion trends, and EPS guidance for FY22.”

“We are lowering our 1Q outlook for beer, given tough off-premise revenue comps, in addition to input cost inflation and higher investment spend in the earlier part of the year. As such, we are now looking for STZ to deliver EPS of $2.40 (ex-WEED), which is two cents ahead of consensus estimates,” noted Vivien Azer, equity analyst at Cowen.
“On a total company basis, we are modeling for 4.3% reported revenue growth (vs. +4.0% Street), driven by 19% growth in beer, though offset by a ~31% decline in wine & spirits. On an organic basis, we are modeling for total company revenue growth of 14.3%, with the higher growth driven by LSD organic growth in wine & spirits.”
