Snapshot Top 10: S&P Food & Beverage Index



The Top 10 performing stocks in the S&P Food & Beverage Index are shown for seven different investment strategies. Whether you are looking for value, growth or dividend stocks, or you want stocks that rank well overall, you can see the top 10 stock picks, together with how they rank on a scale of 1 to 100 from the perspective of different investment strategies. We have also added our newest Sentiment and 360° View ranks, which encapsulate the market voices of analysts and professional investors into a simple ranking for easily evaluating stocks. As an objective research provider, Obermatt has been refining its stock analysis algorithms for more than 10 years (no AI used here!)

Select any stock for the detailed analysis of that stock's performance across the different investment analyses. Please note that the Top 10 stocks focus only on Large to XX-Large companies.


What the six ranks mean

For every stock, we judge its performance against its peers and rank it on a scale of 1 to 100. The higher the rank, the better the stock performs than its peers. And, we do this for six investment strategies:

Value - shows how good of a value the stock is. Green is "inexpensive"; red is "expensive".

Growth - shows a company's growth potential. Green is "high growth" expected; red is "tough times ahead".

Safety - relates to the amount of debt a company has. Green is low debt level; red is high debt level.

Combined Financial - this isn't an average of the first three ranks but rather a consolidated view across several financial indicators. Green = good; red = tread carefully.

(NEW) Sentiment - quantifies professional analyst ratings and holdings as well as market pulse. Green = positive sentiment; red = skepticism (Only available to Premium Subscribers).

(NEW) 360° View - the ultimate rating with all financial and non-financial indicators.
