Hello Share Carriers. Britain isn't the only country that struggles with rising food prices. Or inflation. Or transport problems. Or labour shortages. Though some regions are thriving. Like India whose people are becoming richer, admittedly from a very low bar. But as investors in (mostly) the stock of British companies, should we care about how the rest of the world fares? Yes, we should and here’s why.
Hello Share Tasters. The number of folks eating away from home is growing. Just look around your high street to see that. After the lockdowns it seems everyone has missed the joys of not doing their own cooking. One company which is benefitting from this trend is Compass Group (CPG). A latest trading statement, for its third quarter, seems to show that.
This issue for Darren was prompted by me discussing “cousin” Axl Rose yesterday. I start by discussing day 12 of Joshua’s Advent calendar, then what Darren needs to record for you this Yuletide. Then it is the strange tale of Calisen (CLSN), Goldman talking woke nonsense and finaly BBC #fakenews on cheddar cheese prices and why my grandfather, Sir John Winnifrith, was right in 1975 and why food prices, therefore, could and should fall from January 1.
Hello, Share Creepers. Tesco (TSCO) shares have bounded ahead this year. So I think I might sell my holding now. I was shopping in Morrison (MRW) yesterday - in which I also hold stock - and I found the shopping environment there rather better than my local Tesco branch...
Hello, Share Pickers. If you are one of those investors who still believe that the Brexit mess will have a nasty effect on share prices, the company I look at today may not appeal to you very much. I - and several speakers at the Global Group UK Investor Show - though don’t think Brexit will make much difference in the longer run...
Note to prat Jamie Oliver. Insult 52% of us over Brexit and you lose custom and shutter your disgustingly overpriced outlets, tell the truth as Tim Martin of JD Wetherspoon (JDW) has and you might report cracking numbers as Tim has done (again) today. The great man has also debunked a stack of Brexit myths, noting:
Once again Tim Martin, the boss of JD Wetherspoon (JDW) is my hero of the day using the occasion of half year results to lay into big business and the lying liberal deadwood press for misleading us all about Brexit. The great man opines:
Jamie Oliver insults Brexit voters (i.e. 52% of the population) and his business is going down the plughole. Tim Martin of JD Wetherspoon tells it as it is and has served up a cracking trading statement today with his company trading strongly and ahead of forecast. Perhaps a lesson there for you Jamie, you patronising and unintelligent little man. Back to our hero Martin whose message on Brexit is uncompromising, lashing out at the CBI, The Guardian and others who tell lies.
Once again Tim Martin of JD Wetherspoon (JDW) is the hero of the day exposing the lies, for that is what they are, spouted by big business and the dishonest media on the subject of Brexit. Martin lets rip in his company's latest trading statement. A true hero writes:
Hello Share Tweakers. If I were an investor in Associated British Foods (ABF) I would be getting a little nervous at the moment. It processes and sells food and has the very different business of Primark, the budget clothes stores. You’ve probably discovered that these shops are often stuffed with customers as their prices can be remarkably low.
