Just last week, one of those Fools, All-Star joryko, succinctly summed up the Molson Coors bull case for our community:

Slowly starting to move upwards toward the end of 2012 and early 2013

-still trades at a P/B of 1, below its ten year average of 1.2
-Price/Cash Flow is only 8, versus its ten year average of 11
-unseated Budweiser as the #2 beer in America during 2012
-StarBev acquisition gave the company a dominant presence in Central and Eastern Europe
-20% jump in international sales for 2012

Not a huge growth story, but doesn't need to do much to justify prices at these low of valuations. 5+ years

If you want market-topping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Of course, despite its five-star rating, Molson Coors may not be your top choice.
