Shares of Anheuser-Busch InBev (NYSE: BUD) ended last week down 1.6%, losing some of their gains a day earlier driven by better-than-expected earnings and revenue numbers for the first quarter.

Meanwhile, 8 analysts set a 1-year price target for BUD shares at $69.88, a 7.78% climb from its current price, with a max estimate of $80 and a minimum prediction of $64 per share.
