Hello Share Samplers. I’m quite excited about this. This family has now received its Whitbread (WTB) shareholder’s discount card. A good investment that, as I’ve only held the share a few weeks and am already up by 12%. And the added perk is really quite good, as shareholder discounts go.

Hello Share Thrashers. In the past I’ve commended you to look at JD Wetherspoon (JDW). My reasoning was that average families, like mine, cannot do without it.

First trading update of my (long) tip of the year for 2017 and the shares are down 4%. Worried? Of course not…the Whitbread (WTB) share price is still nicely above where I recommended it…and frankly we are not even a month into the year. The magnitude of the move today reflects the (to use a wonderful phrase poached from a fellow market observer) wildebeest financial market backdrop we have at the moment…

Hello Share Cravers. Whitbread (WTB) is a name which still conjures up old-fashioned pubs and breweries. Not necessarily a great business to be in that, as pubs seem to close down all over the shop.

Hello Share Noshers. Whenever I’m made to watch the Great British Bake-off (by my teenage daughter, who’s a great fan) I feel desperately hungry. Which is a bit of a worry for me because, as you’ve probably noticed, many of the competitive cakes on this show can sometimes be made from things which may put on unwelcome weight.
The show demonstrates that British people are very keen on cakes.

Hello Share Trillers. When I think of that well-known British name Whitbread (WTB), I think of pubs and beer. As I am a red wine man, this does not always thrill me.
