Drink King Diageo Defies the Virus and should Bounce Higher when the Bug Goes

Hello, Share People. What's not to like about the latest six-month report from drinks giant Diageo (DGE)? It shows an encouraging return to growth, good cash generation and an increased dividend.

Is Diageo telling us something about November's US election?

Back in April, I mused about how the spirits behemoth Diageo (DGE) was a great insight into the broader markets.

For example, Heineken’s first-half underlying profits were down by 52.5%.

Drink up! Diageo tells you how it is out there...

You may recall that Tom and I had a conversation back in October about Diageo (DGE) and how this loved-up bond proxy captured everything that was wrong about consensus investing. Naturally, shareholders who had followed our lead and sold could buy back today at a considerable discount to the share price back then...however what I like to think we highlighted was that the cosy consensus that such global consumer behemoths were always and everywhere a core portfolio holding is far from obvious…
