Constellation Brands (STZ) Stock Makes a Stunning Progress: A Sharp Move?

Constellation Brands (STZ) stock has been in focus among investors since the start of the year. The stock has managed to record a loss of 19.05% in 2021 so far and the rally continued on Wednesday. This morning, the stock plunged by as low as 0.97% during pre-market trading after increasing 0.02% on Tuesday. One of the major triggers behind the rally this week is linked to the completion of the direct offering to institutional investors.
