Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Should Dad's funeral be in the White Bear and is Network International a stonking short?
Irn Bru isn’t a Star Wars character but a soft drink a bit similar to Tizer, so how has its owner A G Barr (BAG) done in the virus crisis? Not too badly, it seems, though the share price has been hit for six. Maybe a recovery is on the cards...
Hello, Share Travellers. Though it pains me to say it, I might seem disloyal to my favourite childhood tipple of Tizer. A.G. Barr (BAG) makes it, along with that other iconic brand IRN-Bru. This is the legendary Glasgow beverage which has kept even the mighty Coke at bay on its home turf (apparently, only three people, including two family members, know the recipe). Also in the stable, though less well known to oldies like me, are Rubicon Spring, Funkin Cocktails, Rockstar and Snapple. But there is a growing awareness that sugary drinks are not that healthy...
I covered IRN-BRU maker AG Barr (BAG) last month, discussing why I thought the company was fundamentally sound despite some recent headwinds. Today, I’m coming off the fence and rating it as a Buy ahead of Tuesday's interim results.
Barr’s (BAG), the Scottish manufacturer of Irn-Bru, continues my (and Malcolm's) recent drinks-related theme with a trading update for the six months ended July.
