ASCC Is My New Pick
Last year Americans spent 5.5 billion on vodka; this year that number is expected to hold steady with the hot new segment of premium-vodka set to rake in 1.2 billion – without even trying.
I am telling you this because the alcoholic beverage sector has been performing at such a high level, you’d be forgiven for thinking alcohol is the new black gold.
Globally the market for spirits and other alcoholic beverages will break through the $1 trillion ceiling by the end of 2014.
This means the potential for gains in this sector are so huge, even a totally wasted investor has a chance of taking something from the explosion in the industry.
Of course, my readers don’t trade under the influence and are always alert to undervalued opportunities and a chance to capitalize on the gain potential of discovered plays, right?
Gains and sobriety are pals so you need to take a serious look at my latest play, ASCC (The Aristocrat Group).
This stock is massively undervalued and recent market valuation has started to inject some high spirit into the play.
I believe the recent net realizable intraday gains of up to 20% are but slim pickins in the massively untapped potential of ASCC.
Recent trading activity has signalled a massive uptrend and ASCC is sitting on a solid technical setup.
Sixty days ago this stock was trading above a dollar, it slipped as far down as into the 0.20s, and this last week has started bouncing back, hitting 0.30 on Friday. We are at a price point where the stock has the potential to produce some serious gains all over again. I really like the set-up here.
ASCC made strategic strides recently when it completed its push to have one of its products placed in an upcoming Hollywood movie called The Killing Time. Through its wholly owned subsidiary, Luxuria Brands, the company is set to capitalize on extensive movie publicity with the placement of one of its premium vodka products.
ASCC is showing a massive uptrend with recent market valuation showing consecutive increases of +4.55%, +8.74% and 15.95%. Investors have shown increasing bullishness towards ASCC.
ASCC has recorded a surge in investor interest characterized by massive upswings in trading volume. ASCC has a 10-day volume high of 702,040, a 179% increase on average volume of 251,597. This means also the stock is nice and liquid.
ASCC’s recent uptrend has shown a strong potential for a rise above its SMA50 of 0.49. Investors have a potential of realizing gains of up to 70% at these levels.
ASCC appointed leading specialist advertising firm, Ignite Advertising to spearhead its marketing campaign in the domestic and global alcoholic beverage markets.
ASCC successfully surpassed a major strategic hurdle after it got approval from the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) to label its products “gluten-free.” This gives ASCC access to a growing market estimated to be worth more than $6 billion.
ASCC is cementing its presence in the U.S. distilled spirits market – estimated to be worth more than 21.3 billion with robust projections for future growth.
ASCC (The Aristocrat Group) has established itself as a premier operator in the brand management space. ASCC’s main vehicle is Luxuria Brands, which it uses to maintain a competitive advantage by achieving and sustaining a low-cost strategic model.
ASCC through its lead subsidiary, Luxuria Brands, is working to promote national market modernization trends in product branding beginning with an American-made premium vodka line.
ASCC has announced extensive plans to expand operations into the music industry, and strategically branding in-demand products on a global scale.
ASCC also has plans to expand into the branding of women’s products and resources. Lower cost production, distribution and reductions in overhead will position ASCC as an authority in the brand management space and ultimately all markets added to the company’s growing portfolio.

Outlook for Vodka in the Surging Alcohol and Beverage Industry
The spirits industry hit a milestone in 2012, exceeding 200 million cases, and it is positioned for ongoing growth this year. Flavor innovation, in particular, propelled the spirits industry to reach these new heights, according to Technomic Inc.’s newly released 2013 Spirits TAB (Trends in Adult Beverage) Report.
“Despite the moderate pace of the economic recovery, the spirits industry continued to grow in volume and dollars,” said Eric Schmidt, director of research at Technomic, a Chicago-based research and consulting firm. “Spirits was actually the fastest-growing segment of adult beverage in 2012, outpacing wine and beer, and we anticipate that trend continuing in 2013.”
The fastest-growing segments of spirits were vodka (up 5.8 percent), American straight whiskey (5.2 percent) and tequila (3.8 percent). Vodka increased its share to account for one-third of total spirits volume and remain the largest segment, while the smallest, Irish whiskey, once again posted a double-digit gain (21.6 percent), according to the Spirits TAB Report.
The premiumization trend in spirits ramped up in 2012, indicating that consumers explored and indulged in high-quality drinks, even in the slow economy. The higher price tiers outperformed the lower ones in every segment except blended American whiskey and cordials and liqueurs. This shows a willingness among consumers to spend more to experience the premium end of the spirits spectrum.
The vodka market in particular has seen extremely strong numbers. Vodka is fast becoming America’s favorite drink and now accounts for a third of all sprits consumed in America. Market volume is expected to 210 billion litres by 2014, representing a solid 10% increase in the last five years.
Worldwide vodka accounts for one-quarter of all distilled spirit sales and this market is set to exceed $306 billion.
Branded beverage consumption is also increasing with more and more consumers preferring to buy premium offerings from the world’s most successful beverage houses. Nearly 40% of all alcoholic beverage consumption is estimated to be skewed towards premium brands.
ASCC is extremely well placed to capitalize on these growing trends.
ASCC has been releasing a slew of positive breaking news. The most recent developments have only served to confirm why investors are increasing their bullish sentiment towards this stock.
Here’s ASCC latest release on its aggressive plans for the near term:
ASCC Formulates Plans to Capitalize on Successful Vodka Launch
MIRAMAR BEACH, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–
With its debut vodka brand set to be released in only a few short weeks, the Aristocrat Group Corp. (ASCC) has big plans for growth in 2013. The company is already investing in a new packaging innovation that could soon help ASCC expand its beverage line to include many more new offerings in the $197.8 billion beverage alcohol industry.
First to the marketplace will be RWB Ultra-Premium Handcrafted Vodka, a gluten-free liquor which ASCC brand management division Luxuria Brands plans to deliver this summer. While the company couldn’t be more excited to deliver a top-shelf spirit to the booming, $5.5 billion U.S. vodka market, RWB is only the start of ASCC’s plans. Later this year, the company plans to release a second vodka brand featuring a packaging innovation with the potential to take the market by storm.
“This is an eye-catching, functional design that’s going to stand out on the shelves,” said ASCC CEO Robert Federowicz. “It’s something that we can apply to niche products like high-end tequila, custom spirits and imported microbrews in addition to vodka. We can’t wait to release additional details as soon as our patent application is approved.”
In the meantime, ASCC remains 100-percent focused on the successful launch of RWB. The company is currently in talks with clubs and venues in Las Vegas and Los Angeles about hosting official premiere events promoting the release of its new ultra-premium handcrafted vodka, paving the way for additional products to come.
The company will distribute beverages nationwide and compete in the highly profitable sector alongside LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton (LVMUY), Diageo PLC (DEO), BEAM Inc. (BEAM) and Brown-Forman Corp. (BF-B).
With such ambitious plans for near term revenue growth, investors should have no qualms about their approach towards ASCC’s gain potential.
The action has been heating up during the last few trading sessions and I believe a remarkable trading opportunity is at hand. I want my readers to have an opportunity to participate and capitalize on the action.
I am observing a bullish trend developing as ASCC begins to move higher following a clear reversal from the bottom of its trading channel. Here’s where the potential of this alert multiplies exponentially – ASCC just weeks ago was trading at $1.25, which is more than 315% above Friday’s close. This stock is loaded with potential and appears to have plenty of room to run within its existing channel. Get ready for what should be a wild trading day.
