I am still more focused on a “hotly-debated Vegan Sausage Roll” than Greggs shares

Some good news and some less good news for easyJet (EZJ) today. Call me radical but I have booked an easyJet flight for later this year, which is a tiny bit of positive news for its finance team. The less good financial news is that the company is going to have to “offer new and existing cabin crew a £1,000 bonus at the end of the summer holiday season, as airlines battle to retain and recruit staff”. Frankly though, a bit like any company, if it doesn’t have happy and motivated staff it will ultimately struggle. I remain a fan despite a lower share price this morning. And what about Greggs (GRG), which published a trading update this morning? After all a couple of months ago I asked the question “At what share price will I want more than just a vegan sausage roll from Greggs?”...

At what share price will I want more than just a vegan sausage roll from Greggs?

I am sure many people have almost given up on picking stocks and related investment efforts but  as I noted here on Sunday  if you are not being greedy about looking for investment opportunities when the global markets are fearful, then let an investment company mention your pension and go to bed. As for individual stocks though, there are plenty of interesting things happening today…

Don’t worry, be excited ahead of a busy corporate earnings week

A week into January and I see that the weekend press has plenty of stories about the European Central Bank executive who ‘warns green energy push will drive inflation higher’, as well as the UK’s former vaccines minister who said it would be ‘helpful’ to cut the self-isolation period to five days.  Otherwise there is the apparent hassle of the wealth of the top 1% is 230 times higher than the poorest 10%.  Such analytical excitement (not).

This Bakery King is Spreading Fast and the Share Price May Soon Be Cooking on Gas

Hello, Share Tasters. My happy family are all veggies. My three kids in their late twenties have never tasted meat or fish. So we were delighted by the success of the meat-free sausage rolls by Greggs (GRG). And we buy a lot of them. We also like the efficient, modern, bright and breezy way it runs its bakeries. And reckon a lot of other folks feel the same.

Hello an excitable rest of 2021, 2022 and beyond – re. ScS and Greggs

As a famous Led Zeppelin song once observed: “if it keeps on rainin’, levee’s goin’ to break”. Such is life in a world of higher government debt levels and (in many cases) excitable equity valuations and exceptionally low bond yields. That is not a combination which continues, in other words you have to keep very active with your stock selection (and general investment allocation). I am certainly confused about some of today’s results from the UK market.

The Sectors that May Struggle to Build Share Price in Covid's Red Wake.

Hello, Share Pasters.  It’s likely most companies will make a jaunty recovery once they resume normal service. But not all firms will rally. And and some will vanish altogether. Let’s have a look at sectors it may be wise to avoid in future or perhaps cash in any shares you already have.

Appraising a profitable Monday for Hotel Chocolat and Greggs investors

A bit of excitement for commodity stocks (again!) and even the pound this morning, but otherwise a quiet Monday morning start for the UK markets. A couple of share price winners I notice are Hotel Chocolat (HOTC) and Greggs (GRG), where if you have been holding either stock over the last year…then you have done rather well. Let’s start with Hotel Chocolat.

RNS potpourri: AA, Hotel Chocolat and Greggs

Greggs Could Ride High Again as the Veggie Sausage Rolls Keep Rolling Along

Hello, Share Troopers. The biggest bakery hit of all time (in this household) is the Greggs (GRG) veggie sausage roll. They’re as tasty as heck, cost an easily handed over £1 and they’re nearly always sold out. Given a crafty publicity exercise, they became hugely popular. And due to their culinary excellence, they’ve remained so ever since. Last year, the innovation helped Greggs to revise profit forecasts upwards five times in a row…

Greggs – it is not just about the re-opening schedule...

If you happen to be in my company and the conversation - for whatever reason - turns to Greggs (GRG), then I can guarantee you that you will learn three things. First, despite 98% of the time being a pescatarian, I am just a little partial to one of the original (non-vegan) Greggs sausage rolls and the other two stories relate to my last few months as an institutional investor which you can read HERE. I have not owned Greggs shares for quite a while and to be honest I do not have a particularly strong view either way today. However, its update out earlier was insightful at a number of levels...

Veni Vidi Vegan. Greggs the Baker and other Greener Companies Could Be Healthier for Our Portfolios.

Hello, Share Reachers. In my more angry past, I have criticised Greggs (GRG) the baker, for having too much coloured icing confections in its window. Not that good for kids, I thought. But as one of the original (almost) vegetarians, I applauded its big market drive to introduce its vegan sausage rolls. And what a difference that’s made to its P&L!  The company says that sales rocketed by a tenth in the first seven months of this year.

Greggs - it is all about winning 'Best Vegan Sandwich'!

The world has turned upside down. Today's trading update from Greggs (GRG) contains the observation that: 'As testament to the increased breadth of our product range, we were recognised at PETA's 2018 Vegan Food Awards and were awarded the 'Best Vegan Sandwich' for our Mexican Bean Wrap'. I know the steak bake fraternity must be revolving in their early graves but I kind of see this as the high point of the turnaround plan at the core of the Greggs story for the last (just under) six years.

Too Much Coffee in the High Street May Impact on Greggs

Hello, Share Swipers. I may have commended Greggs (GRG) to you in the past. I think I might have changed my mind. This high street baker seems to be everywhere these days. It’s not only in busy areas but has also moved into transport terminals, housing estates and the like.

Declining Bread Sales May Prompt you to Slice your Bakery Shares

Hello Share Swallowers. The wiser investor pays attention to consumer trends. And to buy shares in a company which is at the mercy of food fashions can be a risky undertaking. We all found this out as the price war among supermarkets began. But here are a few other companies I think might be ‘sells’ because of changes in the most basic type of food we eat.

As the Greggs Bandwagon Rolls on, You Might Care to Bite into the Shares

Hello, Share Takers. I’m not a great fan of Greggs (GRG) the baker. I rather disapprove of the sugary confections you see in its shop windows. This may be because of my dodgy teeth. But they do a very wholesome seeded loaf which is a mainstay of this family’s kitchen.

Do the Cake Walk to Share Success (We Hope) with Finsbury Food

Hello Share Noshers. Whenever I’m made to watch the Great British Bake-off (by my teenage daughter, who’s a great fan) I feel desperately hungry. Which is a bit of a worry for me because, as you’ve probably noticed, many of the competitive cakes on this show can sometimes be made from things which may put on unwelcome weight. 
The show demonstrates that British people are very keen on cakes.
