What the Molson Coors Upgrade Means for Mutual Fund Investors (TAP)

Molson Coors logo
Nomura Securities lifted its rating on Molson Coors (TAP) on Thursday morning. Here’s what the move means for mutual fund investors.

Inside the Analyst Move

Nomura Securities analyst Ian Shackleton upgraded TAP from “Neutral” to “Buy.” The firm has also raised its price target on TAP from $70 to $85. This new price target suggests a 10% increase from the stock’s current price. The analyst cited lower gas prices as the reason for the upgrade.

Takeover Candidate

While we see TAP as fully valued as it is trading at 18x 2015 earnings estimates, we do consider the company a potential takeover candidate. There has been some chatter over the possible takeover of this company, which has sent its shares upward.

Investors should also realize that although the company has had a difficult time growing revenue, lower gas prices and a slowing economy could benefit the company.

Mutual Funds to Watch

Investors interested in TAP may also be interested in the funds listed below. These funds currently have the largest stakes in the company.

The Bottom Line

The funds above allow investors to gain exposure to TAP while remaining diversified. Investors interested in Molson Coors may also be interested in Anheuser Busch (BUD) and Constellation Brands (STZ).
