Over on CAPS, 491 of the 518 members who have rated Molson Coors -- roughly 95% -- believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include CAPS All-Star jyc3, who is ranked in the top 10% of our community, and bobbyabull.

Last month, jyc3 served up this simple bull case to our community: "Low P/E, high cash flow, low debt, recession resistant business."

In a more recent pitch, from last week, bobbyabull "tapped" Molson Coors as a bargain-stock brewed to perfection:

If they earn $3.60 a share for 2009 (yahoo finance) and you assume the multiple gets up to 16x at some point (reasonable for a defensive stock like this ...) you end up with a price target of $58. In the meantime, you get a dividend yielding almost 2% with the equity trading down here in the low $40's. That's my thesis anyway.
