Can someone explain how DGE can justify a PEG Factor of 3.38? --------------------------- PE Growth (PEG) Factor The PEG Factor, is the price-earnings (PE) ratio divided by the earnings per share (EPS) growth rate. The PEG factor measures the relative cost of earnings growth at the previous day's closing share price. The formula is the following: = PE ratio / EPS Growth Rate The PEG ratio is a tool that can help investors find undervalued stocks. When used in conjuction with other ratios, and the sector, it provides investors a perspective of how the market views a firm's growth potential in relation to EPS growth. Note: - A PEG factor equal to one, means that the market is pricing the stock to fully reflect its EPS growth potential. - A PEG factor greater than one, indicates that either the stock is overvalued, or that the market expects its future EPS growth to be greater than the current consensus. - A PEG factor less than one, indicates that either the stock is undervalued, or that the market does not expect the company to achieve its forcasted EPS growth.

Forget gold! When the world falls apart, I’d pick this FTSE 100 stock Vishesh Raisinghani | Tuesday, 13th August, 2019 | More on: DGE Shelves holding drinks bottles Image source: Getty Images. From Sydney to New York, it seems dark clouds are gathering over the global economy. Economic growth has already stalled in Britain, based on the latest official gross domestic product numbers, and with Brexit looming on the horizon, things could get a lot worse. In times like these, savvy investors retreat to so-called ‘safe havens’. Traditionally, safe havens included government bonds from developed countries and premium real estate in megacities, all of which now seem overvalued to me. Some investors prefer gold. I, however, prefer an income-generating asset that has stood the test of time and prospered despite downturns — Diageo (LSE:DGE). The alcoholic beverage giant is arguably one of the most stable and robust stocks on the FTSE 100 index. Its track record of wealth creation dates back to the early 1990s and investors who bought the stock in, say, 1997 have seen their capital multiply seven-fold to-date. The stock has also been able to withstand the pressures of economic downturns. During the global financial crisis of 2008-09, when the broader index was down 40% from its peak, Diageo only lost 30% of its value. Over the past five years, which include the Brexit vote and its aftermath, the FTSE 100 has only gained 8.1%, while Diageo is up 96.6%. If you include share buybacks and dividends, the total shareholder return over that period would be even more impressive. Better than gold? It’s difficult to deny gold’s merits as a safe-haven asset. The spot price of the commodity has quintupled since the year 2000. That implies a compound annual growth rate of 8.9%, while Britain’s average inflation rate has been 3.1% over that period. However, even if gold can replicate this performance in the future, Diageo’s 2% dividend yield, £4.5bn share buyback programme, and 30.5% return on equity outshine the yellow metal. Coupled with its historic resilience to economic upheavals, I believe Diageo is safer than gold. Looking ahead Moving forward, I’m optimistic about Diageo’s prospects because of the strength of the company’s underlying brands, the shape of its balance sheet, and the diversification of its income sources. As I mentioned in a previous article, Diageo has significant exposure to both North America and emerging markets. This means the ongoing Brexit turmoil will be offset by a stronger US dollar, while slowing growth in developed markets will be offset by growing consumption in India and China. Foolish takeaway Diageo’s scale and product mix make it somewhat impervious to economic cycles. As mentioned, the stock retained much of its value during the great financial crisis a decade ago. Since then, shareholders have more than doubled their investment if dividends and share buybacks are accounted for. Looking ahead, its track record of wealth creation, the global scale of the company’s distribution network and the promised £4.5bn share buyback programme make this stock more appealing to me than gold.
I see this as a safe haven while we head upto brexit dead line and a lot of people too this looks like breakout territory to me too.

It also has a good track record of growth which we believe can continue for the foreseeable future. This is the ultimate guide to news updates from the king of booze. Diageo's (LON: DGE) chief executive, Ivan Menzes is a refreshingly relaxed businessman when it comes to discussions about global trade tensions, including those caused by Brexit. The company backed remain and spoke in favour of Theresa May's deal, but also remains positive that the government has plans in place for a no deal exit which will allow it to continue to trade smoothly with most of the countries where it sells its alcohol. Trade tensions certainly don't seem to be having any impact at the moment. Nor does the weather - a commonly used excuse for poor numbers by companies in the food and drink space. Revenues in the year to June 2019 rose 6%, thanks to strong organic growth across all regions. Asia Pacific - which has overtaken North America as the single biggest geographic subsidiary - reported a 9% increase in sales to £226m. Margins are also improving in the emerging regions, although still trail the 44% operating margin reported…

Spirits maker Diageo PLC plans to broaden the use of predictive analytics across its business to boost profitability and efficiency, as the U.K. company strives to hit a yearslong cost-savings target by end of June. The maker of Johnnie Walker whisky and Tanqueray gin wants to improve productivity by better forecasting customer demand, creditor payments and commodity prices, Chief Financial Officer Kathryn Mikells said in an interview with CFO Journal. To achieve this, the company has turned to a suite of tools known as predictive analytics that gather and crunch large amounts of data to identify trends and forecast events. Predictive analytics "really give us more bang for the buck" and enables the London-based company to spend its capital more wisely, Ms. Mikells said. One application for these tools has been in Diageo's advertising and coupons efforts. The marketing team now conducts a "what if"-analysis before launching a campaign to ensure the advertising is targeted as precisely as possible. The analytics tool gives real-time forecasts for the potential return on investment based on factors including timing, length and reach of a marketing campaign. This helps the marketing team generate more impact, Ms. Mikells said. Predictive analytics also help the company's internal audit team to better allocate time and resources. Historically, Diageo's internal auditors would pull random samples of financial data to test the strength and accuracy of the company's reporting and oversight processes. Now, predictive analytics help them target their sample selection, Ms. Mikells said. "When you run predictive analytics, it can tell you which samples are the ones that have the biggest risk of being unusual," Ms. Mikells said. The tools also provide useful information for the company's purchasing department. This includes helping the procurement team place orders for commodities such as wheat and sugar, and helping the finance team hedge against fluctuating raw material costs, Ms. Mikells said. In addition, predictive analytics allow Diageo to be more selective when dealing with retail customers. The tools analyze creditors' reliability when paying for Diageo products, and can help the company dedicate its time and resources to those retail customers that are the most likely to pay on time, the CFO said. The predictive analytics program is first rolled out to Diageo's most important markets, the CFO said. North America generated 34% of net sales in fiscal 2018, followed by Europe and Turkey with 24.2% of net sales and Asia Pacific with 20.7% of net sales, according to the company's annual report. Net sales totaled to GBP12.16 billion in fiscal 2018 ($15.6 billion), up from GBP12.05 billion in fiscal 2017. Diageo in July 2017 raised its 2019 cost-savings target to GBP700 million ($780 million) from GBP500 million. But the company will remain focused on boosting productivity beyond that date, Ms. Mikells said. "It isn't something that just comes up in the annual budgeting plan," she said. "There is no change in the expectation of continuous improvement." Analysts expect additional cost cuts in the new financial year. "The last cost savings program targeted lots of micro areas. We will see more of that," said Simon Hales, managing director for consumer staples and beverages research at Citigroup Inc. "They [Diageo's management] have been very explicit that there is a change in culture and that the savings don't end just because the program ends," said Mr. Hales. Part of the savings generated by the cost cutting and productivity program went into upgrading Diageo's IT systems. "Diageo is a step ahead, having this big cost-savings program and using digital capabilities," said Nico von Stackelberg, an equity research analyst at Liberum Capital Ltd.

Diageo launches new Smirnoff Infusions Smirnoff Infusions Product News RE Alcohol Login or register to save this article Diageo has launched new Smirnoff Infusions, a 23% ABV drink infused with fruit essence. It is available in two flavour varieties, including Orange, Grapefruit & Bitters, and Raspberry, Rhubarb & Vanilla, and is recommended to be mixed with soda, with the finished serve containing 87 calories based on a 50ml serve. It comes with an RRP is £14. The launch will be supported with a £4.4m campaign, which the supplier says is predicted to reach 97% of the UK population in the first year. Sarah Shimmons, the brand’s marketing manager for Europe, said: “Smirnoff Infusions is an exciting new addition to our portfolio in the UK. “The process features real fruits infused and distilled individually for the perfect amount of time to allow their natural flavours to be extracted. The resulting drink is blended with Smirnoff No. 21 Vodka and crafted at 23% ABV, to ensure the perfect balance of natural and fruity flavours.” The supplier says in wholesale, retailers will find the drink sited next to vodka.
Diageo invests £16m to remove plastic Guinness packaging posted by Charlie Hart in Supply chain, Sustainability 5 hours ago The drinks giant announced today it will be investing £16m to replace plastics currently used in its beer packaging with “100% recyclable and biodegradable cardboard”. The investment will enable the future removal of plastic packaging such as ring carriers and shrinkwrap from multipacks of beer including Guinness, Harp and Smithwicks. It will reduce Diageo's plastics usage by 400 tonnes annually, the equivalent of 400m 500ml bottles, according to the company. Sustainably-sourced cardboard will be used to replace ring packs and shrinkwrap packaging, in a response to mounting global concerns over the impact of plastics on marine life and ocean plastic pollution. The new packaging will be rolled out in Ireland from August 2019, and the plastic-free packaging will be rolled out globally in 2020. Mark Sandys, global head of beer, Baileys and Smirnoff for Diageo, said: “We already have one of the most sustainable breweries in the world at St. James’s Gate, Dublin and we are now leading the way in sustainable packaging." He added: “This is good news for the brand, for our wider beer portfolio and for the environment.” Diageo exports Guinness and other beers to regions including the US, Canada, Europe and China. Individual cans are already fully recyclable. David Cutter, Diageo’s chief sustainability officer and president, global supply and procurement, said: “Consumers expect our packs to look beautiful, be functional, and sustainable." He added: “I am proud to announce this investment, through which we have been able to combine all three. We have been working tirelessly to make our packaging more environmentally friendly and I’m thrilled with this outcome for Guinness and our other global beer brands.” In 2018, Diageo announced its plastics targets for 2025 to ensure 100% of plastics used are widely recyclable, reusable or compostable and to invest in circular economy opportunities. It is one of a number of drinks companies taking action over plastics. Last year, Carlsberg announced that it would be replacing plastic in its multipack packaging with recyclable glue. The company said the use of glue in its “snap packs” would reduce plastic packaging use by 76%.

Politicians can be useless, currency declining and central banks struggling but the pub will always have our backs. That is one of the reasons why drinks maker Diageo (LON: DGE) is a defensive stock and its shares tends to do well in times of economic distress. Indeed, the group’s share price is up 13% in the year to date and 66% since the UK voted to leave the EU in June 2016. It’s not just the slightly addictive qualities of its products that makes Diageo defensive. The alcohol specialist is a global giant, generating no more than 27% of its revenue from any one geography. The internal troubles of single countries (or European trading blocs) therefore doesn’t cause it too much grief. It also has a very strong suite of brands which makes it hard for competitors to take market share.… GOTTA LOG IN

One investment trust that I have mentioned a few years back that the original DGE company was one of its first purchases some 125 years ago. If they had held onto the holding it would have been worth £2 billion. The trust today is valued at less than £1 billion.
Agreed. I've part of my holding dating back to an inherited block of Distillers. Also invested in Guinness along the way.
