BUY. CONSTELLATION BRANDS's P/E ratio indicates a premium compared to an average of 24.65 for the Beverages industry and a premium compared to the S&P 500 average of 20.65. The current price-to-sales ratio is well above the S&P 500 average, but below the industry average.
|STZ 27.82||Peers 24.65||STZ NA||Peers 16.68|
Premium. A higher P/E ratio than its peers can signify a more expensive stock or higher growth expectations.
STZ is trading at a premium to its peers.
Neutral. The P/CF ratio is the stock’s price divided by the sum of the company's cash flow from operations. It is useful for comparing companies with different capital requirements or financing structures.
Ratio not available.
|STZ 21.09||Peers 22.59||STZ NM||Peers 2.13|
Average. An average price-to-projected earnings ratio can signify an industry neutral stock price and average future growth expectations.
STZ is trading at a valuation on par with its peers.
Neutral. The PEG ratio is the stock’s P/E divided by the consensus estimate of long-term earnings growth. Faster growth can justify higher price multiples.
STZ's negative PEG ratio makes this valuation measure meaningless.
|STZ NA||Peers 6.27||STZ -57.76||Peers -16.86|
Neutral. A lower price-to-book ratio makes a stock more attractive to investors seeking stocks with lower market values per dollar of equity on the balance sheet.
Ratio not available.
Lower. Elevated earnings growth rates can lead to capital appreciation and justify higher price-to-earnings ratios.
However, STZ is expected to significantly trail its peers on the basis of its earnings growth rate.
|STZ 4.05||Peers 4.12||STZ 13.75||Peers 2.18|
Average. In the absence of P/E and P/B multiples, the price-to-sales ratio can display the value investors are placing on each dollar of sales.

Higher. A sales growth rate that exceeds the industry implies that a company is gaining market share.
STZ has a sales growth rate that significantly exceeds its peers.
