Analysts See Opportunities at Alkaline Water Co. (WTER)
Published Tuesday, May 10, 2016 by Ryan Allway
Alkaline Water Company (OTCQB: WTER), developer of the Alkaline88 brand of bottled water, has generated a tremendous amount of media attention over the past several weeks. With demand for bottled water expected to surge to $279.65 billion by 2020, the company has begun selling its breakthrough pH balanced bottled water in more than 22,000 stores. Management forecasts a 157% revenue increase for fiscal 2016.

On May 9, Beverage Stock Review initiated coverage on the stock, calling it “one of the most exciting new launches we have witnessed in the fast growing Alkaline segment of the designer waters marketplace”. The firm pointed out that the company surpassed many deep pocketed competitors in just two short years within the Southern California market, including Essentia Water, First Beverage Group, and AquaHydrate….all without spending a penny on advertising.

Beverage Stock Review is produced by the Chicago-based Institutional Analyst Inc., which specializes in presenting small- and micro-cap companies to high net worth investors.

A day later, Zacks Research initiated coverage on the stock with its report titled, “WTER: Leveraging the Shift to Bottled Water”. The report highlights consumers’ growing demand for bottled water and the company’s progress in reaching a growing number of retailers. In addition, the analyst firm highlighted CEO Steven Nickolas’ extensive experience within the beverage industry and his 40 years of international and domestic management experience.

Investors interested in the functional beverage or bottled water industries may want to take a closer look at the company given the recent media attention accompanying its remarkable top-line revenue growth rates. With plans to reach 30,000 retailers this year and more than double its revenue, the relatively small $9.7 million company could have significant upside potential.
