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?…

A quick glance at the FTSE-100 flirting again with the 6,000 index point level might have calmed the casual investor to think that everything was seamlessly slipping into a 'V-shaped' recovery. More experienced investors understand that there are multiple psychological, flow and - yes - fundamental factors at work. That it is complex out there is shown by the tone and content of today's trading update by Next (NXT), a company whose capability to work out a plan I have lauded before...

Aston Martin needs much more help than even James Bond can offer

The comedy that is life as a publicly listed stock of Aston Martin Lagonda (AML) continues apace. I see Nigel was moved a few weeks ago to highlight the lunacy around rumours about a big potential new investor into the business. Meanwhile, I observed in my latest bearish update in November that 'my favourite line for insight remains the x5.5 net debt to adjusted ebitda multiple'. Well I must apologise for the conservatism of my comments back then...because today's update places it squarely in the x6s...

FireAngel – argues “increasing pipeline of opportunities continues to build”… but for now it’s another “materially below” warning!

Previously writing on shares in home safety products company FireAngel Safety Technology (FA.), I noted as they soared to 77.5p on a partnering agreement that the upcoming reality of disappointing results together with even the near-term trading outlook uncertain saw me continue to avoid. Today a “Trading Update” – and the shares currently circa 20% lower on the day of the back of it, towards 35.5p!...

Hornby – argues “we have managed to make a lot of progress”, BUT…

Previously writing on hobby products company Hornby (HRN) it was results, ‘new strategy’ & fundraising - the latter at the prior closing share price of 29.5p. Though, also noting trading including “softer market demand over the summer months and increased competition in the important UK Independent channel”, I concluded that I’d continue to monitor but avoided the shares. Today a Trading Statement announcement…

Biome Technologies – trading update, sales struggle against even recently reduced guidance

Shares in Biome Technologies (BIOM) have retained a slight recovery above 100p following a 2016 “Pre-close Trading Statement, though “the board expects the loss before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation… to be similar to the level achieved in 2015”

Grafenia – review as shares crash back having soared in Q2

I previously wrote on Grafenia plc (GRA) on the back of a February profit warning – noting that I hope readers heeded my previous calls to sell or avoid at much higher prices than the then 8.5p and, whilst wishing new CEO Peter Gunning the best of luck, I retained that stance on the shares - see HERE. They subsequently recovered to more than 16p, but are now back at 9.5p following a recent AGM Statement...
