12/25/2018


Each year brings a new series of problems for business. And although no one can say with certainty what exactly the coming year will be, Bloomberg Intelligence analysts, tracking more than 1,900 companies in various industries, including energy, technology, retail and finance, have compiled a list of companies to which investors should pay special attention.

The experts took into account such indicators as revenue growth, marginal profit, the company's share in the market and the amount of its debt, as well as other factors, such as the current economic situation.

Here are 4 of 50 companies, the fate of which, according to Bloomberg, should be monitored especially closely.

1. CBS

After such events as sudden resignation of CEO Leslie Moonves because of allegations of sexual harassment, and resolution of the conflict between CBS management and its controlling shareholder, National Amusements (a private theater company owned by the Redstone family, which owns about 80% of it Media Concern), many question prospects for growth in sales in 2019. For several months, there were rumors of a merger of CBS with Viacom’s media conglomerate, which was planned to be held early next year.

2. AB INBEV

Bloomberg analysts predict that the Belgian brewing company may part with the production of soft drinks next year against the background of the consolidation of competitors. Moreover, earlier this month, the world's largest beer producer announced start of a partnership with Canadian marijuana producer Tilray Inc for development in the cannabis beverage industry.

3. CANOPY GROWTH

This Canadian company creates cannabis-based products for medical and recreational use. Analysts predict that the world's largest producer of cannabis will benefit from the rapidly growing demand for products.

The company is already operating in 11 countries and plans to enter the markets of Germany, Spain, Denmark and Australia, as well as the markets of several other countries. In addition, Canopy Growth cooperates with alcoholic beverages producer Constellation Brands, which gives it a competitive advantage.

4. COMCAST

Analysts believe that with the acquisition of Sky Plc, the company will be able to launch a global streaming service, which will allow Comcast to become a strong competitor to Netflix. In addition, experts are confident that the introduction of 5G will not harm business of the company, since it is working on its own proposals for ultra-fast communication.
