I historically mucked it up on Bunzl, so what do I think now?

By Chris Bailey | Tuesday 31 August 2021

Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.

If my maths is correct, it is almost one hundred months ago that I quit being an institutional fund manager. I certainly have no regrets. Anyhow, I do recall that one colleague was banging on about the attraction of Bunzl (BNZL), the ‘specialist international distribution and services’ company, at the time. Including dividends it has delivered a 200% gain since then which is far from shabby…even if at the time (and subsequently in my own pension fund) I’d invested in global companies I have inherently been much more excited by. So – on the last day of August, following the publication of first half numbers – what do I think now?
