Tizer and Irn-Bru King Strengthens its Cash Position Despite Covid Losses and could Soon Bubble Up Again.

Hello, Share Chasers. While many firms hit by the virus can expect to see a coiled spring effect on their share prices, I had wondered about A G Barr (BAG). My first thoughts when approaching this modest article was that consumer habits are gradually turning to more healthy diets and AG Barr is known for its soft drinks which are sometimes not the healthiest choice. However this is a misconception.

Food And Fab Gear Keep this British Jumbo Buoyant in the Stormy Retail Sea

Hello, Share Pullers. Food and clothing don’t usually go together but they do in the case of Associated British Foods (ABF) and Primark. The food bit owns the fab gear bit. And Primark, which often seems to be crammed with shoppers both young and old, could be propelling British Foods along...

This Chalk and Cheese Combo Could Prove a Tasty Treat

Hello, Share Breakers. May I admit that some of my expensive wardrobe was bought in Primark, including the fetching purple polo shirt which I’m sporting now. Anyone who goes there can attest to the huge crowds its stores attract. More importantly, the queues to pay are usually long...

PureCircle - Fad Failure and Funny Accounting = SELL

Bears often pigeonhole duff companies as frauds, fads or failures as if they belong in one or other of these distinct categories. The truth is that quite often a fad resorts to fraud when it realises that it is a failure. The most obvious example of this right now is Tesla. But there are others.

Tate and Lyle: book the profit...and where's my tin of golden syrup?

It is usually John Paul Getty who is given attribution for the wonderful 'by selling too soon' response to the question of how to get rich.  Selling is an important discipline and there is certainly no crime in taking a few profits...which brings us to Tate & Lyle (TATE).  Maybe I have been consuming too many sugar - or sucralose - laced products recently but I feel pretty pleased with this one, telling everyone to get stuck in earlier this year and then suggesting a hope price of 7 quid a share in May  after an initial bounce.  Well hold the front page...it has happened following Thursday's results publication.

Prospects for Glorious Associated British Foods May Not Be So Glorious At the Mo

Hello Share Tweakers. If I were an investor in Associated British Foods (ABF) I would be getting a little nervous at the moment. It processes and sells food and has the very different business of Primark, the budget clothes stores. You’ve probably discovered that these shops are often stuffed with customers as their prices can be remarkably low.

Purecircle. Moving in the Right Direction - DOWN!

I have never been a fan of Purecircle (PURE), particularly in 2012/13 when its shares rose six-fold from £1 to £6 on hugely overblown dreams of the potential of its plant based sweetener product to replace sugar and cure America of its obesity problem.

Donald and Mexico. Will It Strike a Sour Note with Sugary Giant Tate and Lyle?

Hello Share Crashers. It seems to me that there is a headwind against the over-consumption of sugar. The Government warns against eating too much and so do all sorts of health writers. And when what you sell is under scrutiny, then you have to be concerned about future profits.

Primark Pack 'Em In - But I'm Not Convinced the Shares Are a Bargain Buy

Hello Share Scorchers. My family is addicted to Primark stores. They will travel 60 miles just to go to our nearest one in Swansea. But it’s not my favourite shopping experience because its establishments are usually absolutely chocker with buyers. Not that Primark is not well equipped to serve them well, with a workforce of 60,000 across 300 stores in 11 countries. You didn’t think it was that big, did you?

Coca-Cola Hellenic – Shares up 26% since May, excellent performance

It’s been three months since I covered Coca-Cola Hellenic Bottling Corporation (CCH), the Greek-International bottling company with a monopoly on selling Coke in Eastern Europe, the Eastern Med, Russia and Nigeria.

Barr’s (BAG), the Scottish manufacturer of Irn-Bru, continues my (and Malcolm's) recent drinks-related theme with a trading update for the six months ended July.
