Making new highs daily. Largely on the back of sterling weakness.

"Diageo targets dividend cover ... within the range of 1.8-2.2 times. This (dividend) brings the full year dividend to 62.2 pence per share and dividend cover to 1.7 times. It is expected to maintain dividend increases at roughly a mid-single digit rate until cover is back in range." So, all being well, perhaps in 2 or 3 years, we might expect a larger % increase in dividend.

Results very good with a healthy increase in the eps line. Nevertheless, a dividend increase of 5% looks a bit stingy for a company forecasting a very substantial increase in operating margins over the next 3 years.

Sailed through the £23 barrier on those results. Diageo reports a consistent strong performance for the year ended 30 June with reported net sales of £12.1 billion and operating profit of £3.6bn - up 15% and 25%, respectively. The group said this reflected favourable exchange and accelerated organic growth. Diageo said All regions contributed to broad based organic net sales growth, up 4.3%, and organic volume grew 1.1%. Organic operating profit grew 5.6%, ahead of top line growth, driven by good progress on productivity partially offset by implementation costs and one-off items. Free cash flow continued to be strong at £2.7 billion, increasing by £566 million compared to the prior year, with net cash from operating activities up £584 million to £3.1 billion. Basic eps of 106.0 pence was up 18%. Pre-exceptional eps was 108.5 pence, up 21%, as higher organic operating profit and associate income along with favourable exchange more than offset the impact of disposals and a higher tax rate. Diageo said it continued to expect mid-single digit organic net sales growth and was raising its margin improvement objective from 100bps to 175bps over the three years ending 30 June 2019. On 26 July 2017 the Board approved a share buy-back programme to return up to £1.5 billion to shareholders during F18. The board has recommended a final dividend increase of 5% bringing the full year dividend to 62.2 pence per share

Drinks giant Diageo's reported net sales at £6,421m and operating profit of £2,065m were up 14.5% and 28.0% respectively in the six months to the end of December, reflecting accelerated organic growth and favourable exchange. The group saw organic growth, across all regions, with 1.8% volume growth and 4.4% net sales growth. Organic operating profit grew 4.4%, in line with top line growth, driven by gross margin improvement. Free cash flow continued to be strong at £1,084m, increasing by £245m compared to the prior period with net cash from operating activities up £230m to £1,267m. The interim dividend is up 5% at 23.7p per share. Chief executive Ivan Menezes said: "We have delivered a strong set of results with broad based improvement in both organic volume and top line growth and this positive momentum demonstrates continued effective execution of our strategy. "Highlights this half include improved performance in our US Spirits business and across our scotch portfolio, driven by our focus on marketing with impact, innovating at scale, expanding our route to consumer, and winning in reserve. "Progress on productivity supports growth, margin improvement and consistent strong cash flow generation as well as improving our agility. "Diageo is building a stronger, more consistent, better performing company. "We are identifying consumer trends faster, expanding the reach of our products across markets and developing trade channels to capture these growth opportunities. "Our productivity work is on track, driving efficiency and effectiveness across the business. Our work on trade and marketing spend gives us better data enabling smarter, quicker decisions that generate higher returns. "Our expectations of delivering stronger financial performance this year are unchanged. We are confident of achieving our medium term objective of consistent mid-single digit top line growth and 100bps of organic operating margin improvement in the three years ending 30 June 2019."

Have decided to buy on dips in 2017 - think we will see further mergers in this sector.
