Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: Steven Whitehead's share dump shows why the bears (inc me) are still right on THG

I start with a weather report then consider Diageo (DGEin light of Chris Bailey’s mea culpa bull piece earlier. I am not sure that I agree with him. Then I look at THG (THG) where an £8 million share dump by a PDMR announced on Friday shows why the bears were right and are still right. Steven Whitehead knows far more about share valuations than Tory Boy poseur and A Grade bullshitter Matt Moulding.,

I don’t drink to my acknowledgement that I was wrong about Diageo!

You should never mind a bit of hindsight from the 0.001% of people who did something a bit bonkers and made a fortune. I guess I should have theoretically invested a couple of thousand quid in bitcoin eight or ten years ago and would now look like a genius.  Whilst I am sure there are a few people who have made themselves absolute fortunes this way, I reckon 99% of people who did buy a few bitcoin back then, probably did not make much money (even if they could log into their electronic link successfully). Famously I sold my ASOS (ASC) shares a gazillion years ago after doubling my money, which was not very smart from the perspective of where the shares ended up fifteen years or so later. I am still living and learning 26 years into my actual investment life.  And that brings me back to Diageo (DGE) which had its latest numbers last Thursday…

I'm still not buying the stock - or drinking the product - of Fever-tree

I think I have tried a Fever-tree (FEVR) product once but I do not have the right drink preference to be a natural big fan.  Anyhow, I did not decide to chase the stock when I last wrote it up in April last year here which actually turned out to be a duff call, as it seems many investors seemed comfortable in paying a higher and higher multiple.  Well, funnily enough, I have never really found a forward 40 plus earnings multiple as an easy purchase.

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. So how has the mighty Diageo fended off the big drop in sales that must have followed closures of pubs, restaurants and nearly every other hospitality venture?

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. Interestingly, the share price today is within one percent of where it was when I wrote about the company more than five months ago – which tells you just how much we have been treading water at multiple levels over that period. Anyhow, the above observation includes factoring in a 5% odd share price bump today. So what did the owner of the Johnnie WalkerBell’sSmirnoffBailey’s and Gordon’s brands among many others say today in a pre-AGM trading commentary to induce such a reaction? And what can be discerned about the wider view of the world?…

Diageo's Sales Drop But the Drinks Giant Should Soon Be Back on its Sturdy Feet

Hello Share Mates. There is evidence that companies that sell a good time, like cinemas, leisure centres and drinks firms do better when times are difficult. It’s all to do with consolation. But thanks to the virus, that no longer really applies to the first two. However, Diageo (DGE), the famous drinks purveyor, could soon be back on its very sturdy feet…

Drink, Drink, Drink to the Company Whose Chances of Recovery Are Strong (With Apologies to The Student Prince)

Hello, Share Choosers. If you had shares in a brewer or drinks producer like Diageo (DGE), you will have seen your portfolio creak under the virus.

While the company that does Budweiser and Stella Artois lost 45%. Diageo’s full-year to end June dropped by 14%, still a big blow…

Losing my analytical virginity on Spectris...and I'm impressed

I see ‘quality growth’ darling Diageo (DGE) has got a bit of a tonking this morning.

Drink Companies Like Diageo Should Recover from the Virus Hangover Faster than Most Firms

Hello, Share Seekers. One of my favourite motes is that companies that purvey drink do better in hard times. Fortunately, I’ve not had a chance to test this theory very often. But in this particularly ‘hard time’ we may prove that the theory works in practice. So let’s have a look at one of the biggest drinks companies...

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…

Why I am still not eating at The Restaurant Group nor banking with Metro Bank

Where do we start today? First, there is no surprise to me that shares in the loved-up bond proxy Diageo (DGE) have continued to rollover, as Tom W and I discussed here back in October. The downgrades it talks about are approximately equivalent to the 2% odd fall in the shares today but the real issue remains the very firm valuation in this sort of stock. Still not the first name I am chasing to buy in the coronavirus-related equity market fall. Next up has to be badboy Restaurant Group (RTN)

This Drinks Giant Could Say Cheers Whether Economic Times are Good or Bad

Hello, Share Shapers. A lot of my gelt is tied into Diageo (DGE). Perhaps a bit more than my usual cut-off point of no more than ten percent of my portfolio. The reason for this out-of-ordinary support is that Diageo seems one of those companies that can command zippy shares prices in times, which in world economy terms, are good or bad. But let’s have a look at the fundamentals rather than making general pronouncements...

In shares and life what matters is how you react

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'.

Notes from Underground - Most read articles from the page week and I rant pointlessly about Craft Beer

WPP shares are advertising a change in the market and a challenge for itself

In one of his shareholder letters, Warren Buffett talks about how instead of spending countless hours at his desk musing about investment opportunities, the results he had generated would have suggested much of his time would have been better spent sneaking off to the cinema. In a strange way, I kind of felt the same way recently as the Brexit talks rumbled on, the Pound went up and market rotation occurred...whilst I was sitting in a meeting room doing some broader civic duty whilst the net value of my pension fund powered forward…

Large caps are all about levels (as shown by Next, Diageo and Johnson Matthey today)

Elephants cannot gallop but that does not mean larger cap shares are uninteresting, because institutional investor types can get overly excited (or rudely underwhelmed) about shares almost just as easy as bulletin board types can do crazy things around smaller cap shares. With large caps it is about spotting big themes, looking carefully at the numbers and setting your levels. With this mindset you can find plenty of double digit plus total return opportunities – which is way better than money in the bank earning you the square root of nothing. Three cases in point today…

The Big Drinks Firm has a Top Up as Shares Hit New All-Time High.

My esteemed colleague Graham Neary, a bloke whose analytical powers are tremendous, opined the other day that drinks firms make investors lots of money.

I’ve also commended this lot on this delicious website before  now. Since then the shares have risen about 40%.

Worse still, in a few hours' time, I will be under the surgeon's knife.
