Today’s video takes a very quick look at shares of Constellation Brands (STZ - Analyst Report) ahead of their earnings report. The company is riding a nice streak of earnings beats, while its industry is in the top 15% overall too, suggesting a pretty nice trend.

However, it is important to note that the most recent estimates have been slightly lower, and the company has an Earnings ESP of -1.8%. Add this to a mediocre fundamental score of ‘C’, and there are definitely some questions heading into the release.

Still, Constellation Brands has a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy), and it was recently upgraded into buy territory within the past week. Plus, the company hasn’t missed earnings estimates in two years so it has a pretty good looking chart, as we can see below.
