Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: A share which I own is either a Covid 19 zero or a multibagger, let me explain
Pembridge Resources serves as a good example of how quickly everything can go wrong for small producers
Gooch & Housego – argues “remains in a good financial position with a strong balance sheet”. Does it?...
The next couple of weeks or so is peak earnings season for people such as myself who busy themselves with looking for opportunities across global equity markets. Whilst many UK corporate names issue only a couple of meaty earnings updates a year, the average American, European or Asian company has a quarterly earnings cycle. Thanks to the passage of time, I am less than two years away from racking up my one hundredth quarterly reporting period in what passes for my professional life and - during the last twenty three odd years - I have learnt that the key is how you react to numbers and not to focus on what they might say or even nominally if they have 'beaten' or 'missed'.
Merry Christmas Share Smirkers, but I’m not really overjoyed at the prospects of the massive household goods supplier Unilever (ULVR). The company is truly huge and should withstand any big shocks, but sales are not rocketing...
There are a lot of numbers out today but the regulatory disclosure that struck me the most was the comment from consumer staple behemoth Unilever (ULVR) that 'Marijn Dekkers has decided to step down as Chairman of the Board with immediate effect. Nils Andersen, Non-Executive Director, has been appointed by the Board to succeed Marijn as Chairman of Unilever'. Now at face value this appears rather boring but let us dig a little bit deeper…
Hello, Share Rascals. For a change, let me steer away from my topical suggestions on which shares to buy and sell in the run-up to Christmas. Because there are still big companies which are not really affected by any Yule rush to buy. One of them is Unilever (ULVR).
Back in the dim and distant past, when the issue of the prevailing weather and the stock market came up the stock that would be uppermost in the minds of institutional fund managers was that consumer behemoth Unilever (ULVR) and its significant - and volatile - ice cream division. Unilever still does ice creams (Carte D'Or, Cornetto, Magnum, Solero, Twister, Choc Ice, Super Split, Fat Frog, Feast, Brunch, Viennetta...take your pick) and no doubt it is coining it in today on the hottest day of the year so far, but that is not as influential as it used to be.
Hello Share Trouncers. We’ve already discussed the likelihood of take-overs of big British firms now that we have a low pound following the Brexit vote. An example is Unilever (ULVR) and Kraft Heinz. So now let’s look at the Unilever situation more closely.
Hello Share Takers. You’ve probably noticed that there has been a shortage of good take-over stories recently. This might put you off your guard. You might decide it is not worth holding onto a share which has long been in the rumour mill, just because this sort of deal is becoming as rare as budgie teeth.
Unilever (ULVR), the owner of branded product such as Lynx, Domestos and PG Tips, reported revenues down 6.3 per cent due to adverse currency movements. The slowdown in emerging markets has translated into falling currencies and the UK big exporters are feeling the pain. That is the main reason why the stock has underperformed the general market in the past year.
The Unilever (ULVR) share price has been dropping stone like since May. The trading statement for Q3 assisted the process, speaking of weakening growth in emerging markets. The share price, last seen was 2318p. Time to buy?
