I start with four companies to boycott: Octopus Energy, Grolsch, Nivea and Kopparber. Not that it will make any difference. I then battle EasyJet (EZJ) to get my own money back and discuss why i would not own its shares. Then onto Bidstack (BIDS) which will meet payroll next week but will struggle in July, Verditek (VDTK) and finally Westminster Group (WSG) run by sleazy ex Tory MP Tony Baldry of the fraud 3DM infamy.

I have been on a Wizz Air (WIZZ) flight a few times, but I have never owned the shares. That was a bad move as nearly five years ago the stock was below twenty quid a share whilst earlier on this year the stock had pushed over a fifty pound level. Not too bad for a company that can talk about the year to the end of March that it has ‘255+ new routes (meaning) 800+ routes in total’ across many different parts of Europe. Naturally though, the last year has been far from easy with passenger numbers at 10.2 million…down 75% year-on-year.

In both cases it has only added to my blood pressure. I explain what happened, a sense of guilt at how I can, as a journalist, pull strings, and what it says about the companies.

The good news is that Rogue Bloggers for Woodlarks inches closer to target. The bad news is we inch there so if you are yet to donate please do so HERE. In today’s podcast, which will please Matthew and his dog, I discuss Easyjet (EZJ), Amigo (AMGO), Zoetic (ZOE) and the fifth stage of moronism – Trainline (TRN), Bahamas Petroleum (BPC) and Purplebricks (PURP).

The last time I was on a plane was in January 2020 and – as it happened – it was an easyJet (EZJ) flight. Over the years it is probably the airline I have travelled on the most, so certainly I am a bit of a fan. It also meant that I bought some stock during the dog days of last year. But what do I do now?

Before I review today’s first quarter update from ITV (ITV), a few words on the AGM update from SIG (SHI) which I last wrote up in late March HERE.

Two FTSE 100 names of interest published an update this morning. First easyJet (EZJ) which noted that the group headline loss for the 6 months ending a couple of weeks ago is expected to be somewhere between £690-730 million. Naturally that is a lot of money but there were even worse losses feared by some analysts.

This year has all been about Covid- related stocks and anything with even a vague association with that, but over the next year or two the biggest profits will be made from companies that have been hit by the virus but have had the strength to survive and will reap the benefits as things begin to return to some semblance of normality.

Just over a month ago HERE I concluded about FTSE 100 names easyJet (EZJ) and Imperial Brands (IMB) that there was value in both. Since I wrote those words, the former has rather (if you will excuse the pun) taken off with the share up almost 50% from the either side of five quid level it was previously at. Meanwhile Imperial Brands shares are showing more evidence of clearly forging a triple bottom in the twelve/thirteen quid range and are now breaking up/out. That is nice darts…though neither of today’s updates are flawless…

Obviously the title question is not aimed at your personal consumption activities because I know you are sober and righteous people, fully locked down at the home office and whose only vice is contributing to the online gambling-driven profits nudge up of GVC Holdings (GVC), as disclosed this morning. You know my thoughts on that one already from here. Back to recently less remunerative shares though…
