Diageo is a solid and robust global company although now may be a good time to take a little profit and reinvest elsewhere. The tobacco sector is still very undervalued and unloved with both BATS and IMB paying juicy dividends.

Diageo sells portfolio of brands to
14 Nov '18
Diageo has agreed the sale of nineteen brands in an agreement with Sazerac for an aggregate consideration of $550 million. The net proceeds of approximately £340 million, after tax and transaction costs, will be returned to shareholders through a share repurchase following completion, which will be incremental to the previously announced programme of up to £2bn. The transaction, which is subject to regulatory approval, is expected to complete early in 2019.
Interesting comment with that is that Diageo are focussing more on Premium brands in the US.
I Was looking to but on weakness earlier in the month!

Let’s see where inflation and the 3 interest rate rises this year in USA takes us, we could possibly see a wobble back 15% in equities by years end.

Take 2300-2400p as a watch area over the next 12mths. DGE is expected grow ePS to 160p for 2018.

Judging by the warning signs on smoking, we have nothing to fear about the warnings on drink. We have to find some way to shorten our existence. My recent experience is that drinkers last longer, only non. drinkers die early.

Calls for graphic warnings on alcohol sold in UK
Fri, 26th Jan 2018 13:02
(ShareCast News) - Bottles and cans of alcohol sold in the UK should be covered with graphic cigarette-style
health warnings to highlight the risks of exceeding the recommended limit, the Royal Society for Public Health has demanded.
The public health body said on Friday that a very few people were aware of the new UK alcohol limit set by chief medical officer Dame Sally Davies of 14 units per week for both males and females, and accused alcohol industry lobbyists the Portman Group of endangering the public by dropping its recommendation of including
warning labels to companies after the weekly limit for men was revised down from 21.
The RSPH called for mandatory warnings of the 14 units per week on all drink labels sold in the UK, potentially including confronting images of alcohol-related diseases like bowel cancer, as well as a clear drink-drive warning and a calorie count.
Shirley Cramer, chief executive of the RSPH, said, "Having a drink with friends or family is something many of
us enjoy. However, the potential health consequences of alcohol consumption are more serious than many people realise."
"If and when people choose to drink, they have the right to do so with full knowledge of both what their drink contains and the effects it could have. Consumer health information and warnings are now mandatory and
readily available on most products from tobacco to food and soft drinks, but alcohol continues to lag behind. If we are to raise awareness and reduce alcohol harm, this must change," she added.

The last time I was in this share, selling at �11, there was talk about 3 billionaires buying this company.
Seemingly they chickened out and boy, what a mistake did they make!
I just wonder if they are still interested. May somebody has some up-to-date info?

DGE is a buy?
15 Mar '17
As DGE has held in the 2200p area for the last 2mths or so, is it time to sell my ULVR ( bought in 2003 at 1165p ) and move here. It's looks so compelling, but the P/E looks high at 22 compared to a FTSE of 15.6 times & S&Pvof 17 times.

But talking of earnings. Back in 1999 I hear lots of companies were trading at close to 40 times earnings before dotcom era...

There are lots of good companies like dge which will survive very well out of this all they need to do is move their registered office to a place like Braga in Portugal where there is cheap offices and houses. Everything is now done on computer so location makes no diference

The Petition is gaining support
10 May '16
Apologies for board hopping but-
The petition is going quite well; ~4500 signatures so far. Although it really needs a turbo boost.

This petition was stalled in parliament since 12th Aug 15; finally green lit on 12th feb 2016.
The FCA don't even reply on the matter, now is your chance to have your say.
If you hate seeing buys reported as sells etc!!!!!!
Has already been sent to Martin Lewis, Daily Mail, Moneyweek & Watchdog.

My local MP supported this petition by writing to the petitions committee to help un-stall it.
There’s 650 MP’s in Westminster, So have you written to your MP? 649 to go!

If this petition doesn’t reach 10,000; then imo we might as well have not bothered as it will almost certainly be filed B1N; @ 10,000 the government should respond. We are currently getting approx. 100 new signatures a week, but need 3x that amount to reach the target with only 15 weeks to go.
At 5000 I will send this to the PM & the chancellor as well as my MP again.

So – If you haven’t yet signed or indeed have but haven’t passed it on to others, then now’s the time to do so. If each person who has signed can get just one other person to sign then we will double the total immediately. I have posted to all aim listed gas n oilies, currently doing the footsy 100. But I can only do so much to push this. Really need you guys & gals to help. Thanks to all who have signed so far.
We really need a social / media savvy individual to help generate more interest in this.
