In its latest quarterly statement, Boston Beer (SAM) had its best quarter ever with earnings per share of $3.21 on revenue of $306.87 million. After yesterday's 8% gain, the stock is closing in on its all time high. Since my first article on Boston Beer on April 28, 2017, the stock has risen by more than 120%, a rate that has put its price far ahead of the company's value. It's time to sell.

After a few stumbles, the Boston Beer Co. (SAM) is looking to regain ground in the craft beer market it played a large part in creating. The maker of popular Sam Adams beverage products, Boston Beer is a leader in America’s beer market. It holds a robust position in the marketplace with a widespread distribution network nationwide and many production locations. Further, the brewer sits in a strong place financially, with robust earnings. Given all of this, the company looks well-positioned to improve its standing as well as to expand the boundaries of the craft beer marketplace.

According to GuruFocus’ All-In-One Screener, the following companies have grown their book values per share (BV/S) over the past decade.
BV/S is calculated as total equity minus preferred stock, divided by shares outstanding (EOP). Theoretically, it is what shareholders will receive if the company is liquidated. Total equity is a balance sheet item and equal to total assets minus total liabilities. Since the BV/S may not reflect the company’s true value, some investors check the tangible book value to confirm their investment ideas.
The BV/S of Cognizant Technology Solutions Corp. (CTSH) has grown by 25% over
Over the last 15 years analyzing and forecasting stocks, the one bit of criteria that has produced more big winners outside of Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio)’s 12 tenets is buying closer to 52-week lows than 52-week highs. For instance, it would have been better to buy Coca-Cola (KO) a year after its initial public offering than on the day it began trading publicly.
Boston Beer Co. Inc. (SAM), with the stock trading really close to its year low, is an incredible investment opportunity. At the open, the stock was $144 to $145.

Someone emailed me this question:
“How do you think about sustainability of a company’s competitive advantage?”
This discussion is going to get pretty theoretical. I’ll try to use examples where possible to keep it grounded. The simple answer is that competitive advantage tends to dissipate over time to the extent other companies – rivals of the company you are looking at – pursue the same strategy. For that reason, you want to find situations where rivals either can’t or won’t pursue the same strategy as the company you’re looking at. Let’s start with something like Coca-Cola (KO).
L Brands Inc. (LB), New York Community Bancorp Inc. (NYCB), Taubman Centers Inc. (TCO) and Boston Beer Co Inc. (SAM) have reached their three-year lows.
L Brands Inc. (LB) reached $50.30
The prices of L Brands Inc. shares have declined to $50.30, which is only 4.7% above the three-year low of $47.93.
L Brands Inc. is an American fashion retailer that specializes in clothing and fashion accessories. The company’s flagship brands include Victoria’s Secret and Bath & Body Works. L Brands posted $10.5 billion in revenue in 2013, and in the same year was listed as number 258 in the
I evaluated 42 different companies this week to determine whether they are suitable for Defensive Investors, those unwilling to do substantial research, or Enterprising Investors, those who are willing to do such research. I also put each company through the ModernGraham valuation model based on Benjamin Graham's value investing formulas in order to determine an intrinsic value for each. Out of those 42 companies, only eight were found to be undervalued or fairly valued and suitable for either Defensive or Enterprising Investors. Therefore, these eight companies are the best undervalued stocks of the week.
I love this time of the year. The weather has started changing, bringing an end to the sweltering heat of summer (at least if you live in the southeast U.S. like I do). The holidays are fast approaching, which means time with friends and family. But most importantly of all, this time of year means Sam Adams Octoberfest will be back on store shelves – beer fans rejoice!
The only people happier than the beer drinkers are shareholders in Boston Beer (SAM), the company behind Sam Adams (as well as other brands like Twisted Tea and Angry Orchard).

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
