Anheuser-Busch InBev (EBR:ABI) has been trapped below MA 200 for extended periods. The crisis in Russia complicates the situation as the company suspends trade in the country. BUD will also be forfeiting income from its partners in Russia.
Beyond Russia, AB InBev sees opportunities for growth in emerging markets, including China where the demand for alcoholic drinks is on the rise and tastes are changing. Consequently, the company still considers that it will report significant growth in revenues and profits in 2022.
Consumption of alcoholic drinks is just gaining from the pandemic slump. The current economic downturn is unlikely to falter the growth of AB InBev, making it a defensive stock to consider.
