Beer company's earnings were off by 1.4%, but revenues were up 5.9%

Heineken Holding NV (OTCPK:HKHHF)'s shares took a hit Monday when the company missed earnings expectations. Management blamed the disappointing result on a damp June and rising aluminum prices. Still, volumes were up, especially in emerging markets. The non-alcoholic brand is performing very well.

Net revenue was up 5.9%. Not bad at all! Total beer volume increased 3.1%, and the Heineken brand 6.9%. Net profit was down 1.4% to 936 million euros, and earnings per share declined 1.2% to 1.64 euros. Free cash flow was 578 million euros.

Gurus trust the brewers will become good, stable cash-generating investments, even though beer sales are declining in the US

A vigorous day for trading spilled over to the world’s largest brewing companies.

Denver’s Molson Coors Brewing Co. (TAP) closed with a gain of more than 0.50% to $61.39 a share. It was a nice change after shares took a double-digit dive last week when the company released earnings showing U.S. sales dropped almost 6%.

Heineken NV (XAMS:HEIA), also up 0.07%, stood at nearly 88 euros ($104.88). The market has been widely generous to the stock of the Netherlands-based brewer, up 23% over the last three years.

C&C is a beer and cider brewer located in Ireland having a challenging time competing against the two major brewers -- yields 5%

Sleepy C&C Plc (CCGGY) is still a buy. The brewer is too small to survive on its own and would be a perfect opportunity for a food company to break into beer or for Inbev (BUD) or Heineken (HEINY) to expand.

The stock sells for €2.90 in London, there are 309,551,000 shares and the market cap is €898 million ($1.059 billion). It takes $1.18 to buy one euro. Assuming the dividend is not increased in the next half (but it probably will be), the dividend is 14.58 euro cents and the dividend yield is an amazing 5%.

Management is fixing up the company to look attractive to buyers

C&C Group PLC (CCGGY) is an Irish-based brewer of beer and alcoholic ciders. Management has been doing the best it can to compete against the giant brewers. Eventually, the company will probably get bought out.

There are 324.9 million shares, the stock trades at 3.49 euros ($3.82), and the market cap is 1.133 billion euros. Last year’s dividend was 0.1362 euros and I assume management will increase at least 5% this year, so I am going to say the dividend is 0.1431 euros. The dividend yield would be 4%.

Russo has large exposure to both but is not pessimistic

Tom Russo (Trades, Portfolio), partner at Gardner Russo & Gardner, told Bloomberg yesterday that value investors will make money over time, and it will depend on the ability of the companies in which they've invested to reinvest the money over time. Russo has large positions in Richemont (XSWX:CFR), Pernod (XPAR:RI), Heineken (XAMS:HEIA), which have large exposure to emerging markets. But most of his companies have a long-term outlook and ability to withstand sudden downturns such as China, he said.

Russo also said he maintains confidence in Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio)'s ability to deploy large

Managers comment on third quarter activity

The third quarter in global equity markets was characterized by a dramatic increase in equity market volatility, seemingly driven in large part by concerns about slowing growth in China, the devaluation of the yuan, volatile oil prices, and the prospect for an increase in U.S. interest rates. While the Tweedy, Browne Funds finished the quarter in the red, all, with the exception of the Worldwide High Dividend Yield Value Fund, bested their respective benchmark indices, with our two international Funds, Global Value and Global Value II, doing so by a considerable margin. Near quarter-end, equity markets began to rebound, and

Renowned global value investor Tom Russo is famously known for the notion of “Capacity to Suffer.” When we think about Mr. Russo, “ Capacity to Suffer” is also the first thing that comes to our mind. Although I am a big fan of “Capacity to Suffer” myself, I think there are a few important qualities of Mr. Russo that are very much underappreciated.

1. Staying focused and knowing the edge of your circle of competency.

If we look at Mr. Russo’s portfolio since the 1980s, it is very clear to see that he has focused on a fairly narrow universe:

Note to Big Beer: Beware the affronted beard!

MillerCoors, the joint venture between SABMiller plc (SBMRY) and Molson Coors Brewing Company (TAP), is facing a class-action lawsuit from craft beer enthusiasts for having theaudacity to imply that Blue Moon—one of the fastest-growing beer brands in America—was a craft beer.

Given the affection that hipsters have for all things vintage, retro, and old-man chic, I’m a little surprised the lead plaintiff didn’t slap the MillerCoors marketing director with a white riding glove and demand satisfaction with pistols at dawn. Such was the offense taken.

I personally like Blue Moon, and I

Heineken (HEINY)—the world’s third-largest brewer— made news over the weekend by rejecting a merger offer from rival SABMiller (SBMRY)—the world’s second-largest brewer. Apart from creating a global beer-brewing juggernaut, SABMiller’s offer was an attempt to fend off a potential bid by Anheuser-Busch InBev(BUD), the world’s largest brewer, according to Bloomberg.

I’ve got news for you: A mega beer merger isn’t happening.

Consider the trouble Anheuser-Busch InBev had in getting its 2013 acquisition of Mexican brewing groupGrupo Modelo approved. BUD had to sell its American distribution rights to Corona and Negra Modelo toConstellation Brands (STZ) in
