Top Penny Stock to Buy This Week

[mmpazkzone name="in-story" network="9794" site="307044" id="137008" type="4"]

Our top penny stock to buy this week is Ambev SA (NYSE: ABEV).

Ambev is a large South American beverage company that's made a killing the last few years due to several profitable mergers.

In 2004, Ambev merged with Belgian beer company Interbrew, widening the company's international exposure and portfolio distribution.

This was followed by a 2016 acquisition by American beer company Anheuser-Busch to form Anheuser-Busch InBev.

This acquisition made Ambev a subsidiary of Anheuser. It also gave the company access to the largest beer distribution network in the world.

Ambev has capitalized on this network by branching out into non-alcoholic beverage distribution. In fact, it's become the largest distributor of PepsiCo Inc. (NASDAQ: PEP) products outside of North America.

And that's certainly boosted its bottom line. Over the last two years, Ambev has managed to grow its gross profits by 8%.

That kind of growth is why analysts have given the company a short-term price target of $6 - a 33% gain over today's price of $4.49.
