IMAX Corporation (USA) (IMAX), Cedar Fair, L.P. (FUN), Anheuser Busch Inbev SA (ADR) (BUD): Beat The Heat This Summer With These Stocks

Anheuser Busch Inbev SA (ADR) (NYSE:BUD)’s full year 2012 results are indicative of what you would expect from a giant company operating in a relatively mature market. The company’s volumes increased 1% last year, and revenue in the most recent fiscal year inched up less than 2% year over year.

That being said, Anheuser Busch Inbev SA (ADR) (NYSE:BUD) holds Budweiser, one of the most valuable brands in the world, alongside a huge product portfolio. Anheuser Busch Inbev SA (ADR) (NYSE:BUD) has been very active in the mergers and acquisitions space in recent months. The company purchased the remaining portion of Groupo Modelo that it did not already own, for $20.1 billion. Anheuser Busch Inbev SA (ADR) (NYSE:BUD) now has a portfolio of approximately 200 beer brands, including Stella Artois, Becks, and Michelob, in addition to Budweiser and Corona.
