On CAPS, 96% of the 844 members who have rated Molson Coors believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last month, one of those Fools, All-Star rd80, tapped Molson Coors as a refreshing income opportunity:

  • I usually think "large-cap" when looking for stable, dividend paying stocks. To get a little outside the box, I tried screening for mid-cap income stocks with lower-than-market volatility, good yield, reasonable valuation, 4 or 5-star CAPS ratings and earnings growth over past few years. The screen turned up a total of 15 names, including seven profiled in [this article].
  • [I]t's definitely not expensive now. Eleven-ish times earnings, 3% yield, and right around book value -- Molson Coors is worth a little more digging and a CAPS green thumbs-up.   

Of course, despite its five-star rating, Molson Coors may not be your top choice.
