I honestly do learn something about the markets every day. I am not a Unilever (ULVR) shareholder but Domestos, Lipton, Hellmann’s and Magnum are far from disastrous brands. The attempt to buy the GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) consumer business a few months ago failed miserably though and has helped dump the Unilever share price about 18% over the last year at the close yesterday. But why is the stock up 6% today?
If you are a big follower of the global investment markets, then it has been a busy last couple of weeks. Such is the nature of the timing of the quarterly earnings season in the US or Europe. UK listed stocks on average tend to report a little bit less frequently, although as many companies are now global players there are more and more detailed quarterly updates nowadays. Even with my typical larger cap focus, expect some fascinating disclosures from well-known UK listed names over the next five days in a bunch of different sectors. It is all good fun from my perspective.
