In what has been the longest running bull market that I can remember, in which stocks have risen, pretty much in a straight line for over nine years, it has been hard for bears to witness the benign tolerance with which evidently flaky and fraudulent companies are treated by the investing community. In these times patience is required, and it is worthwhile preparing a watchlist of names that are likely to be the most vulnerable when the market finally rolls over. While this list should comprise for the most part those with over-leveraged balance sheets and questionable accounting practices, solid companies should not be discounted out of hand.

Hello Share Masters. At the big UK Investor Show last time, Uncle Tom launched a big demo on stage to see if one brand of tonic water was better than the more common kind. I think he may have been surprised when all but one of the audience he dragged up voted that Fevertree (FEVR) tonic water tasted better than the other brand on offer.

This is interesting. Are the glory days of Fevertree (FEVR) behind it? Is it time to call the top? This is the bear case as presented by a leading broker today. It is an interesting read...

I wrote recently that I wouldn’t want to be short Fevertree (FEVR) or Purplebricks (PURP) on the basis that clearly crazy valuations have a habit of getting crazier.

I am not a great fan of shorting crazy valuations on the basis that they tend to get crazier. For this reason, I have not been short the likes of Fevertree (FEVR) or Purplebricks (PURP), as calling the top is well-nigh impossible.

In this bearcast, delayed by more upgrades to my PC from Mr Gates, I look at the appointment of an Oxford contemporary Charlotte Hogg as deputy governor of the Bank of England. Does it really say anything about the advancement of women? Then I discuss growth stocks such as Gary Newman's Fevertree (FEVR) and Boohoo.com (BOO), Finally I ask for your help please as I assemble a dummy portfolio of AIM Resource dogs just to see if market sentiment is so crazy that they fly. I nominate Golden Saint Resources (GSR) and Xtract Resources (XTR) now please can you nominate another ten dogs by noon Monday 13th?

Fevertree Drinks (FEVR) is a company that I have admittedly been wrong about in the past – I like the product and way the business has grown, but thought the valuation was crazy!

My esteemed colleague Graham Neary, a bloke whose analytical powers are tremendous, opined the other day that drinks firms make investors lots of money. Most of them, anyway. He was writing about Fevertree (FEVR), a company which puts a superior kind of tonic water into gin and tonics. I’ve also commended this lot on this delicious website before now. Since then the shares have risen about 40%.

Fevertree (FEVR) has announced blisteringly good interim results today, helping to nudge the share price higher by another few percentage points. With the market cap rapidly closing in on £1 billion, investors would do well to re-assess their positioning.

Hello Share Pickers. Whenever I consider tonic water, I always think of, well, you know who. But they're not the only people to make this vital addition to a small gin.

Apparently one of the keys to business success in the early 21st century, and in a deflationary environment is to specialise in a niche market – something which means that if you play your cards right you have pricing power, and hence can resist the ravages of falling prices. Fevertree Drinks (FEVR) could be one example of a company that can do this.
