bikeaholic: Whats weighing on the share price? Bit of a double whammy with it going the opposite direction of the FTSE. as well.
broadwood: Yep, very strong results should see share price continue to move North.
broadwood: Heineken said beer sales were down. reddit this Diageo was among the biggest risers this morning after the drinks giant cheered investors with a 17% jump in full-year profits. Shares in the maker of Guinness stout rose 5% to 1,173p as the group reported a boost to its bottom line from increased sales of higher-priced brands such as Johnnie Walker whisky, Kenel One vodka and Tanqueray No. 10 gin. It also set an ambitious double-digit profits growth target for the medium term. Strong sales growth in Asia and other emerging markets outweighed smaller increases in the US and a decline in Europe, on reduced demand from Portugal, Greece and Spain. Diageo's share price rise contributed to a modest increase in the FTSE 100, which rose by 22 points, or 0.4%, to 5,228 points in morning trading. Richard Hunter, head of equities at Hargreaves Lansdown Stockbrokers, said: "Investors are raising their glasses after another robust set of numbers from the drinks giant. The metrics continue to perform as they should increased profits resulting from margin improvements, reduced costs, additional free cash flow and, as a sign of confidence further out, a hike in the dividend." "Diageo's global presence is reaping dividends, allowing the company to ride a wave of growth in emerging markets, such as the growing popularity of Scotch in the Asian region. The group is also well placed to purchase further brands as and when the opportunities arise, and the stated performance is in stark contrast to the difficulties which have beset some of its peers," Hunter continued.
gateside: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/business/sharewatch/investment-column-uncertainty-puts-unilever-on-hold-1681088.html Diageo Our view: Hold for now Share price: 881p (+26.5p) There were drinks all round at the world's biggest distiller, Diageo, yesterday. The company's shares jumped 3.1 per cent after it reconfirmed full-year operating profit growth of between 4 and 6 per cent, even though the first nine months of the year have produced flat sales. The maker of Johnnie Walker whisky and Smirnoff vodka has suffered from weaker demand from Russia, but that should not worry investors if the analysts at Credit Suisse are to be believed. They argue that the worst is behind the company: "We believe Diageo came to terms with the issue of destocking and down trading earlier and more aggressively than its main competitors, and this will bear fruit going forward now that the destocking cycle is nearing an end," they say, adding that the shares will outperform the peer group. We do not disagree that the group is solid, but would prefer to see some numbers to support the above thesis. The group's shares are undervalued, but we would be tempted to wait a little longer before piling in. Hold for now.
gateside: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/business/sharewatch/the-investment-column-investors-can-raise-a-glass-to-dependable-drinks-firm-diageo-824603.html The Investment Column: Investors can raise a glass to dependable drinks firm Diageo Friday, 9 May 2008 Our view: Buy Share price: 1028p (-14p) It is pretty difficult to get that excited about the statement posted yesterday by the drinks company Diageo, which owns the likes of Guinness, Smirnoff vodka and Johnnie Walker whisky, such was its brevity. However, more generally, investors worried about the credit crunch will be raising a glass to the group's hitherto steady-as-she-goes approach. The company's chief executive, Paul Walsh, says that drinks are an "affordable indulgence" that have not yet suffered in the financial downturn, particularly in Diageo's biggest growth areas of Africa and Asia. A spokesman for the group, however, conceded that if things get worse, Diageo would of course feel a little of the pinch, especially in the United States. The company does not want to be regarded as a defensive stock (a good reputation for now, but not racy enough in a bull market). However, Merrill Lynch reckons that is exactly why investors should pile in. "We forecast [estimated] 2008 earnings growth of greater than 13 per cent for Diageo, above the 12 per cent growth estimated for the brewers," they say. "It would appear that the market is valuing Diageo's growth on a similar basis to its peers, whilst not factoring in any potential additional premium on Diageo for its more visible and defensive earnings per share growth." Dresdner Kleinwort disagrees, pointing out that no matter how much drinks are seen as an affordable luxury, if the American consumer loses his job, he is not going to keep spending on pricey beverages. It points out that Diageo trades at a premium to SABMiller, which has better growth potential because of its greater emerging markets exposure. The numbers posted yesterday show a 7 per cent sales growth for the third quarter, bang on most analysts' expectations. The group reiterated its target of 9 per cent organic operating profit for the fullyear. Investors will benefit from Diageo's £1bn share buyback programme, which has no doubt helped the stability of the stock price: while groups in other sectors have seen shares nosedive in the past 12 months, Diageo's have dropped just 2 per cent. SABMiller may represent a better option, and a prolonged financial crisis would kybosh the group's defensive qualities, but others will suffer long before Diageo does. Buy.
gateside: http://business.scotsman.com/index.cfm?id=1012782007 Taking solace in drink MARTIN FLANAGHAN DIAGEO's shares had a bumpy ride yesterday when they got caught by a double-whammy in the latest trading update from the drinks giant. Market sentiment was jolted when Diageo warned that the weak dollar would wipe a further £40 million off operating profits in its next financial year after having already told the market that £90m would be lost to the dollar in its current financial year, ending this month. It compounded the disappointing news for the City by delivering a bittersweet message on trading. The good news was that Diageo's sales had risen in Russia, eastern Europe and Asia Pacific; the bad was that this would be offset by increased marketing costs to drive those sales and so little would not fall through to the profits line. Chief executive Paul Walsh said that as a result the company was sticking with its guidance to the City that profits in the current year would have grown 8 per cent, which was cranked up last February from a previous forecast of 7 per cent growth. No further upgrading of profit expectations came yesterday, and, when added to the bad news on the greenback, Diageo's hares took a hit of 27p, or 2.5 per cent, to 1,038p. Regarding the weakness of the dollar, this influence on Diageo is written into its DNA now, with more than a third of group sales in the United States. This is as a result of the takeover with Pernod Ricard of Seagram in the US five years ago, which took Diageo's market share there up from 16 to 26 per cent overnight. In other words, Diageo has to take the rough with the smooth, its US exposure often providing sharp impetus to its profits despite the currency swings. In some ways, the dollar is to the group what the volatile South African rand is to another big drinks business, SABMiller: a currency wild card that can frequently colours trading results but never one so big, given the wider trading picture, that it can throw the whole show off the road. Diageo's shareholders should console themselves by looking at that bigger picture. Over the past five years, the stock has risen steadily. There have been no dramatic jumps or slumps; just a continued, relentless progress that has seen the shares almost double in value over that period. This is fairly predictable. Diageo is the biggest spirits group in the world. As such, it has the geographic and product diversity to weather localised downturns without any major impact on the share price. Conversely, it is so big that it is virtually impossible for the company to get any transformational deal past the regulators that would have a massive overnight impact on the share price. Instead, Walsh's strategy has been to steadily increase organic earnings - taking hits like yesterday in the company's stride - while picking off individual brands from takeovers involving rivals. A good example was the way Diageo won Bushmills whisky as part of the regulatory trade-off for Pernod Ricard to acquire Allied Domecq. If Walsh can continue to do that, plus finding regular money for share buybacks, Diageo's shareholders should have little cause to grumble in the medium term. The stock is a strong "hold".
grupo guitarlumber: Diageo "add" Friday, August 24, 2007 6:57:31 AM ET Dresdner Kleinwort Wasser. LONDON, August 24 (newratings.com) - Analyst Simon Hales of Dresdner Kleinwort maintains his "add" rating on Diageo Plc (GUI.FSE). The target price is set to 1090p. In a research note published this morning, the analyst mentions that Diageo's share price is likely to remain firm after the company reports its FY07 results. Diageo's stock is currently underperforming the sector by 2% due to the absence of an upward revision in the guidance and the anticipation of a slowdown in the US spirits market, the analyst says.
