Constellation Brands' ($STZ) data reflects that it could be a great quarter for the spirits and beverages company - and so investors may want to pour another round after they get a chance to check out earnings when the New York-based beverage company announces its results October 3. Analysts tracked by Zacks Investment Research are projecting earnings of $2.63 per share for Constellation.
Constellation saw job postings shoot toward the sky in Q3, as the company aimed to boost new workers to the tune of 28%, according to our data. Over all 2019, shares have also appreciated, to the tune of 28% - a delightful pairing, if you will.
Not everyone is ready to pop a bottle before the print. Credit Suisse analysts wrote last week that "hard seltzer is an emerging concern" and projected an earnings miss, of $2.55 EPS, for Constellation in a note dated September 26. But they may not have had any insights into the company's job posting growth over the course of the quarter.
