jimbox1: Surprisingly muted response in the BAG share price to the BVIC merger proposal. BVIC is up 13% at the time of writing. BAG's share of the merged entity (37%) apparently already agreed, so the SPs ought to move in tandem. Could be an arbitrage opportunity to buy BAG and sell BVIC as BAG's market cap currently lagging 7% below the implied combined entity.

northernlass: EXPERT STOCK PICKS AG Barr (target price 1,100p) AG Barr (LSE: BAG), the maker of Irn Bru and owner of a strong stable of other soft drinks brands, is a holding for two of our Expert Eight managers: Nick Train (Lindsell Train UK Equity and Finsbury Growth & Income (LSE: FGT)) and Charles Montanaro (Montanaro UK Focus and Montanaro UK Smaller Companies (LSE: MTU)). Barr has been a substantial holding for Train for donkey's years. Montanaro is also a long-term holder, but the firm has rather less weight in his portfolio than in Train's. Barr is trading today at around the same share price as two years ago. Train tells us: "It seemed plausible enough to us back then that the shares might tread water ... Why not sell, find another stock, then trade back into Barr after its couple of years in the doldrums?" He gives three reasons: "We were confident of Barr's dividend growth ... we covet the long run dividend stream it provides." "We knew that the strong cash generation would ... permit the acquisition of new brands, or ... the build of new production capacity for existing brands in a new geography. This cash generation is a competitive advantage for Barr but because opportunities arrive haphazardly, it is impossible to know exactly when the competitive advantage will boost the share price." "We are always reluctant to sell out of exceptional businesses, except on the most excessive of valuations." In hindsight it might appear simple to sell a stock like Barr that's going nowhere for a while and to buy back in later, but Train warns: "In real-time this is not such an easy thing to deduce or execute. Our conviction about the calibre of Barr's business and about the likelihood that its pricing power will protect long term shareholders against the ravages of inflation is much stronger than our conviction that the shares may or may not take a pause for breath." Wise words indeed, in my view, and applicable for investors not just in Barr but in any high-calibre business. So, at what price would our pro stockpicker be an enthusiastic buyer of more shares in the company? Answer: "Another 50p lower." Based on the price at which the shares were trading at the time, I put the target at around 1,100p.

cambium: Its shares are highly rated, but AG Barr has a great growth record. What images come into your head when you think of the word "Scotland"? It's very likely that your answers will include several words from this list: whisky, haggis, bagpipes, kilts, football, tartan, highlands and Hamish Macbeth (okay, the last one is a bit of an outside bet!). But if you're Scottish there's a very strong chance that your list includes Irn-Bru, commonly known as "Scotland's other national drink." Irn-Bru is made by the Cumbernald-based firm AG Barr (LSE: BAG) and, even though many Sassenachs have never heard even of it, Irn-Bru is the third-best selling soft drink in the United Kingdom. Barr recently turned in an excellent set of results for the first half of 2010 with earnings per share increasing by 18% whilst the dividend was raised by 8%. Growth like this isn't a one-off; compare the 30.4p earned over the six months with the 30.4p made in the whole of 2005. That's some strong growth! Coming to a supermarket near you Naturally growth like Barr is producing doesn't come cheap. I looked at Barr last February in this article when the shares were 830p and since then they have performed strongly, rising to the current level of 1,210p. As a result Barr's shares remain on a high price-earnings ratio (22.9 pre-exceptional items, 26.0 post-exceptional). Companies which have grown strongly in recent years tend to trade on high P/E ratios because of investors' willingness to pay more for a growing company. If we compare Barr's P/E ratio with its growth rate, P/E 23 vs. 18% eps growth, we get a PEG ratio (price-earnings-to-growth) of 1.28 which many investors would consider to be expensive. Legendary investor Peter Lynch advises private investors that they can sometimes spot a successful company before the market picks up on it by going to the shops and seeing what goods are selling well. I've applied this method to Barr's products in the last few months and have seen more and more Irn-Bru appearing English supermarkets (and even a few corner shops in Devon). Many of Barr's other brands such as Rubicon and Strathmore Mineral Water are also attracting a higher profile in England. Unfortunately Barr's growth prospects aren't exactly a secret! It looks as if Barr should continue to grow for some time, as there's plenty of scope to increase sales in England, let alone overseas, so it can be argued that Barr is well placed to expand and the business could justify its high P/E ratio. Powerful marketing campaigns Barr strongly supports its products with advertising and marketing. For example, Irn-Bru's expansion into England has been spearheaded by its sponsorship of professional rugby league to create strong brand awareness in the North of England (Irn-Bru sales rose by 8% in the first half of 2010). Sales of Rubicon jumped by 37% in the last six months, thanks in large part to a £5 million advertising campaign which included sponsoring Sky's coverage of the Twenty20 World Cup. Rubicon's profile received an even bigger boost when England won the trophy because more English viewers would have continued to watch the tournament than if England had made an early exit. Thankfully for Barr, England's cricketers have been much more successful than the football team! So whilst many Scots were supporting Australia against in England in the final, Barr's shareholders were cheering England's success before the match was played! Barr has a reputation for creating controversy with its edgy Irn-Bru adverts and has been on the receiving end of several reprimands by the authorities as a result. The current Irn-Bru advertising campaign, "Bruzil" concerns Scotland's quest to win the 2034 World Cup where the masterplan is to make babies with Brazilians who will then grow up to become star players like "Aberdinho" and "Flavio McFadden." Somehow I can't imagine an English drinks company running a similar campaign! You can find the Bruzil campaign website here (you may want to turn down your speakers). A few more points Barr has a strong balance sheet, with £212 million of assets compared with £108 million of liabilities of which just under £30 million is debt. Forecasts for Barr's earnings per share for the whole of 2010 mostly range between 55p and 60p which puts the shares on a prospective P/E ratio of between 20 and 22. Barr is an interesting company, with strong growth prospects although many prospective investors will be put off by the high share price as it doesn't give you much of what Warren Buffett calls "a margin of safety." But as I said in my previous article about Barr, don't be surprised if Coca-Cola or PepsiCo tries to buy the company one day.

capercaillie: Cambium, Im an independent holder and have seen this stock rise from £4 ish. I think there is terrific upside in the UK alone, Irn Bru brand still pushing south of the border. Good yield despite share price rise. Strong brands. Would make good fit for takeover candidate. Considered taking some profits but staying put.

mcbslea: RNS Number:7258Y Barr(A.G.) PLC 12 February 2001 12 February 2001 A.G. BARR p.l.c. Results for the year to 27th January 2001 anticipated to be ahead of expectations A.G. Barr p.l.c., the Scottish based manufacturer of soft drinks announces that, as a result of strong trading, Profit on ordinary activities before taxation for the year to 27th January 2001 is expected to exceed £13.5 million. The detailed preliminary announcement of the results for that year will be made on 28th March 2001. I think this is good news, as the shares were already on a fairly low prospective p/e, and also i believe a stake changed hands a week or two ago at a price above the prevailing share price at the time. Hang on in there, as i feel there could be good things to come. DYOR.
