I read a decent explanation of when a BB may be acceptable on the ABDN thread earlier today. There's been a long-running debate about BB's on that thread and I have to admit, I am not a fan of them.

However, the explanation referred to Warren Buffet and his belief that BB's, whilst acceptable, should only be undertaken when the share price is unacceptably low. A BB should be treated in much the same manner as an investment. Bought low.

I do hope therefore that any proposed DGE BB is indeed cancelled or at least, nothing is bought above about £25.

I still keep coming back to the 20% drop in sales in South America/Caribbean which only provides 11% of the total DGE sales. It's hardly a big enough fall in sales volumes (2.2% overall) to merit this 12% drop in the share price over the past week.

I have no idea where DGE share price is going and in any case, I'm purely a divi income investor with little interest in share prices. But I do know that after many decades of investing, broker forecasts are worthless. As you say, there are so many with a big cap like this that you can probably find one that suits the situation.

But how do you know which one to follow as far as the future goes? Don't make the mistake of thinking that because it looks like Deutsche called it right on DGE for the time being, that they are somehow superior forecasters. Even a stopped clock...

Diageo hangover to continue for some time, say City banks

Spirits group Diago PLC might have more bad news to come for investors, according to two top City brokers.

Shares in the Johnnie Walker, Guinness and Smirnoff group tanked 15% on Friday as it warned of slowing growth in Latin America/Caribbean, a region that accounts for around 11% of sales.

But that might not be the end of it, according to Deutsche Bank, one of the few brokers to have had a 'sell' rating on Diageo ahead of the warning and that had cut its share price target just days before.

The bank cut it again today, to 2,550p from 2,750p, with sales estimates for other regions in 2024, notably Europe, North America and Asia-Pacific, all lowered.

"Company commentary implies an organic margin decline in both the first half and full year 2024 fiscal year," Deutsche Bank said, adding that it sees a buyback next year as off the table.

'Sell' remains its stance.

Citi, too, says that even though Diageo saw the biggest one-day share price fall in its history on Friday, it is "tough to see a catalyst for the shares".

“Overall, the valuation de-rating of spirits appears to be largely complete and Diageo’s [current] buyback should provide a floor for the stock.

“But with LatAm destocking issues possibly lingering" into the second half of 2024 and given threats to first-half US organic sales growth, "it is not yet certain these Diageo downgrades will be the last“.

“We prefer Pernod”, is Citi’s investment conclusion.

Diageo shares today were flat at 2,851p.

Hope: appreciate your heads-up.

Looking into DGE's fall a little more than is provided on this thread and it seems to me to be really about the world-wide economic slowdown and consumers switching away from premium products towards less expensive offerings.

ALDI and Lidl have both ridden that wave and have been particularly successful as they often offer equally good products at a smaller price than branded.

The LAC (Latin America and Caribbean) area accounts for 11% of DGE's total sales. DGE have stated that they expect a 20% reduction in sales in the LAC area.

That equates to 2.2% of TOTAL sales.

However, other premium product companines such as LVMH and Watches of Switzerland have also seen a reduction in their sales. It appears the rich also have a frugal tendency.

As regards this 'bouncing back' I'd be surprised - and unhappy as I held £10k's worth as at mid Aug. 2023 when I bought at £32.32. But this market is troubled and I'm looking for a 10 year hold on this share.

I am not inclined to add further money in DGE just yet. I'm happy to keep the cash in my ii SIPP as it's earning slightly more than DGE's div. yield.

And that seems to be the issue across the wider market. It's easier at the moment to earn more from safer investments.

OK, I've read the past 80+ posts.
To summarise, because there may be other new investors in DGE (or interested in investing in DGE for the first time soon):

45% of sales stem from the US - sales declining and not growing there at low rate as has been the case in the past.

Court case with some dude who is/was a rapper.

Change of currency from GBP to USD - with possibility of dual listing in USA/UK.

Carrying a manageable debt and still generating enough cash to buy own shares back.

Strong brand loyalty and leaders in Whiskey, Tequila and with Guiness performing better than expected.

A CEO with a plan to grow DGE's share of the worldwide alcohol market from 4% to 6% by 2030...... in an already growing market.

I suspect the share price drop is nothing more than that being suffered almost everywhere in the FTSE-100/250 arena.

You should really have a word with yourself.

I sold a substantial amount of DGE in April at just under £37.

I can now buy them back at a good discount.

At present I hold zero DGE. I fully intend to buy my original holding back but not at these prices.

It does amuse me when we have a small increase in the share price and people like you jump up and down thinking it's xmas.

I would be very careful being long at the moment. The geopolitical situation is atrocious, earnings in the US are coming in lower and a re-rating across the markets is a distinct possibility. I'm also not at all sure about the new CEO and think that DGE is resting on its laurels.

The dividend yield is uninspiring too.

Good luck but don't try to belittle people who have a valid opinion and are quite possibly in a much higher league than you. It makes you look, well......amateurish.

Would I short DGE? No.

Would I buy DGE? Yes but not at this level.

Broker comment concerns fundamentals rather than share price,
but get your point. The share price has been hit hard recently while the
business has continued to deliver record pre tax profits - tbf you could also
make a case recent share price weakness is factoring in slower growth over the next couple of years.

If you buy a stock on a premium rating there is always a risk that rating can become less premium.

Hi rim, I hold ULVR and recently added, had a look at it again today. A bit lower and I would add further.

In terms of DGE, firstly GEN Z (I assume you mean Gen Z) do drink alcohol, but they drink less of it and most of DGE's offering is in premium spirits which are consumed less frequently - Guinness is a mass market product. Arguably a few of their less premium spirits also fit that category.

Total global alcohol consumption continues to grow (detailed projections are available) and move towards spirits (away from beer and wine).
Now that alone does not mean Diageo will continue to thrive, their brands have to stay relevant to consumers of alcoholic drinks. They are also increasing their offering of no alcohol alternatives, Guinness 0.0 and some of their spirits are now available with the alcohol removed - this particular market is still in it's infancy.

Equity markets are tough ATM and because of this I have only mentioned a reasonable longer term opportunity may be developing. I've posted recently that DGE may be available at or around £30.

I could be wrong on a positive longer term outlook!, no crystal ball obvs.
I'm still holding CHG and thanks for the last nudge when the share price was below £2.80.

Short term take - imo share prices move randomly and thus are unpredictable, so attempting to score from betting on SPs is just a gamble. Which explains why most short term players, like gamblers, lose.

Long term take - share prices and divis tend to reflect the performance of the company. It's not an exact relationship but that's the trend.

I'm a very long hold term income investor and think DGE is likely to continue delivering divi growth over time. Perhaps capital growth too though that's not why I invest.

I require wide diversification in my income port and DGE is essential as a rep from the booze sector. There are no others of this size in the UK market, and I stick mostly with large caps.

No guarantees however, even long term hold income investing involves risk.
