Shares of Boston Beer Co. rallied 1.3%, to buck the sharp selloff in the broader stock market, after UBS analyst Sean King turned bullish on the alcoholic beverage company, citing optimism over the company's seltzer business, which he believes will offset weakness in the namesake beer brand. He raised his rating to buy from neutral, and boosted his stock price target to $440, which is 16% above current levels, from $415. King said he believes the "stellar growth" in the hard-seltzer brand Truly hasn't translated into meaningful earnings growth so far this year, because the company's heavy reliance on co-packers weighed on margins. He believes that "headwind" will ease into fiscal 2020 with greater internal capacity coming. King expects Truly sales to grow 75% in 2020 and more than 30% in 2021, has he expects hard-seltzer sales to nearly triple to about $4.7 billion in 2022 from $1.7 billion in 2019. He expects Sam Adams beer sales to fall 6% next year and decline 5% in 2021. "Strong growth in Truly coupled with its increasing weight in the portfolio more than offset softer trends in other [Boston Beer] brands," King wrote in a note to clients. The stock's rally comes as the S&P 500 sank 1.0%, and as the SPDR Consumer Discretionary Select Sector ETF slid 1.3% with all 64 equity components losing ground.
