I like Ocado delivery but I am keeping on avoiding the shares

Once a month or so we do have a household food delivery from Ocado (OCDO) and, as observed back in September, I am a bit of a fan. Helped by its M&S (MKS) link, the quality is a little better in my opinion than our normal delivery faves Morrison and J Sainsbury (SBRY) but the cost is somewhat higher. Still, it is better than going to a rip-off restaurant and – let’s face it – cooking your own food is hardly impossible. However good luck if you fancy a few Christmas specials from the Ocado delivery range because when I last looked the next deliveries are in 2022. Today’s Q4 trading statement was hardly shabby either as it observed ‘strong underlying demand trend…conviction to invest and accelerate growth’, even before the Christmas demand.
