The company has a P/E ratio of 7.7, above the average food & beverage industry P/E ratio of 7.2 and below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7.

TheStreet Ratings rates Constellation as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its notable return on equity, attractive valuation levels, expanding profit margins, good cash flow from operations and solid stock price performance. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had generally poor debt management on most measures that we evaluated. You can view the full Constellation Ratings Report.
