Jordan Super Fly2 012 at sneakerstorm dot us
Price : $70.99
Blake Griffin has exited from the 2014 NBA Playoffs, but that doesn’t mean his playoff Air Jordan sneakers will suddenly evaporate. Still on the way is this pair of the Jordan Super.Fly 20 PO that wears dark concord, black, and infrared. Normally we’d be comfortable calling these “Raptors” given the colors used, but the arrangement of those colors isn’t quite close enough to the Air Jordan 7 of the same name.

Constellation Brands Got Saved By The Beer - http://wp.me/p1ll4u-2byo

By LAWRENCE CARREL

Investors in Constellation Brands experienced a serious beer high this past year as the company's shares tripled to $91.

A good part of the rally came on the heels of a lucky windfall that made the alcoholic-beverage firm the No. 3 beer company in the U.S. But it wasn't just luck and strong consumer demand that caused the company's new beer segment to significantly outperform the overall U.S. beer market. It was a combination of creative marketing and advertising strategies along with strong sales execution.

With beer sales growing 10% for the fiscal year ended in February, "Constellation's beer unit is growing in excess of four times the U.S. beer category," Chief Financial Officer Bob Ryder told Investor's Business Daily.

For most of the past five years, shares of the Victor, N.Y.-based corporation bounced around $20. Despite being the world's largest wine company, with a portfolio of dozens of wine labels plus spirit brands such as Svedka vodka, sales fell.

In an effort to spark revenue growth, Constellation (NYSE:STZ) shed many of its low-margin value wines and focused on high-quality premium wine brands such as Robert Mondavi, Clos du Bois and Kim Crawford. Still, from fiscal year 2009, when it posted revenues of $3.65 billion, sales sank each year, bottoming out at $2.65 billion in fiscal year 2012, a 27% decline over four years.

Then, out of the blue, Constellation received a helping hand from the King of Beers.

In 2012, the producer of Budweiser, Anheuser-Busch InBev (NYSE:BUD), attempted to acquire Grupo Modelo, Mexico's leading brewer and the maker of Corona beer. However, the U.S. Justice Department said that adding Modelo's 7% share of the U.S. beer market to the Belgian brewing giant's 39% share would harm consumers by reducing competition.

Corona Effect

Looking to shed Modelo's U.S. operations, AB InBev turned to Constellation. At the time, Constellation was in a 50/50 joint venture with Modelo called Crown Imports. Crown imported the Mexican brews into the U.S.

Since it couldn't sell Corona and other Modelo beers inside the U.S., AB InBev agreed to sell Modelo's 50% stake in Crown to Constellation. After paying about $5.5 billion, Constellation walked away with the U.S. licensing rights to all of Modelo's brands and a recently constructed Mexican brewery. Not only did Constellation become the sole seller of Corona, the top-selling U.S. import, but it gained total control over the supply.

Ryder says that as soon as Constellation no longer had to negotiate strategy with Modelo, it began to look for expansion opportunities. He says that cans make up about 50% of sales for most beer companies. However, cans make up only 20% of sales for Modelo's brands. And while draft beer typically accounts for 10% of a brewer's sales, it makes up only 2% of Constellation's beer revenues.

"We see a lot of opportunities there," said Ryder.

Marketing is always a big driver of beer sales. Even before the AB InBev deal, Constellation had successfully created a brand personality for Corona that was both authentic and attractive to millennial consumers.

The bikini babes and off-beat humor that sustained the big brands for years has lost its appeal. Meanwhile, the growing craft-beer segment's focus on the quality of the hops and water can seem like a science class at times. But with its beach imagery of sand, surf and relaxation, Constellation nurtured a brand symbolizing a lifestyle that resonates with youthful consumers.

"They have been superb in keeping the Corona message very consistent, and now they are nurturing the Modelo Especial brand, which is growing like a weed in California," said Caroline Levy, beverage analyst at CLSA. "The increased ad spending has led to the brands being pulled off the shelves by consumers, so the retailers are dying to get their hands on it."

While the big brands have lost sales to the craft beers, Corona has posted positive volume trends for three consecutive years, making it the fifth best-selling beer in the nation. At more than 100 million cases, it sells more than twice as much as Heineken, the second-largest import. Meanwhile, over the past year, Corona Light draft has been expanded to more than 100 distributors in 35 markets.

Constellation is now taking its marketing expertise and investing significant money to create authentic brand personalities for its other beers: Corona Light, Modelo Especial, Negra Modelo and Pacifico. The company has launched national TV and digital video campaigns connected to Cinco de Mayo, the NBA playoffs, the NFL draft and the World Cup.

Hispanic Market Entry

The company also has demographics on its side. While Constellation sees a lot of potential for expanding the general market, the company's authentic Mexican brands provide an easy entry point into the growing Hispanic population. Already, Hispanics make up 60% of Modelo Especial's sales and 30% of Corona's. This past year, all of Constellation's lesser-known brands saw sales growth, helping the entire beer unit gain 50 basis points of market share.

Meanwhile, in the wine business, Constellation entered into a long-term strategic agreement with a Chinese distributor of spirits and wine. China is currently the world's fifth-largest wine consumption market.

"The wine business continues to be very challenging. Shipments are down, and there is still sluggishness in the category," said Lauren Torres, an analyst at HSBC Global Research. "And while last year was great because of the beer deal, we will see if they can keep the momentum growing."
