On CAPS, 95.5% of the 641 members who have rated Molson Coors believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include PeyDaFool and All-Star SolitaireOne, who is ranked in the top 20% of our community.

Just last month, PeyDaFool tapped Molson Coors as a refreshing opportunity: "With an attractive P/E, good EPS growth, dividend growth, nice ROE, notable low debt, moderate dividend payout ratio and a 350 year [combined] history to boot, we're looking at a company that has a nice future and good growth prospects."

Molson Coors' well-known brands, distribution scale, and stable business continue to drive its five-star CAPS status. While brewing giant Anheuser-Busch remains the king of beer in the U.S. with about 50% of the market, the MillerCoors joint venture sits comfortably in second-place with a healthy 30% share. And with the stock trading at a P/E discount to Anheuser, as well as high-flyer Boston Beer and global alcohol giant Diageo, Molson Coors seems like one of the cheaper ways to buy your portfolio a drink.

CAPS All-Star SolitaireOne sums it up:

Molson/Coors' premium brands such as Coors Light, Molson Canadian, Carling, Blue Moon and Keystone Light are well known throughout North America, Europe and Asia. In a sustained, pensive economy folks will continue to tighten-up household budgets and make touch choices. However, a man shall not be so easily parted from his favorite beer. ... [Molson Coors] currently pays a very positive 2.4% dividend at this current level (mid-$45), which affords me time to sit back and sip on my Blue Moon while they continue to rake in profits. In this current economy, I'd go long here and expect an obvious winner in the 18-24mo. range.
