You all probably know a lot more about Johnnie Walker, Guinness, Tanqueray, Baileys, Smirnoff, Captain Morgan, Crown Royal and Don Julio drinking realities than me. As a boring teetotal analyst for the last thirty years, I have no idea if they taste nice, make you feel good and the like, but I can see what is popular and respected via the boring old world of supply, demand and pricing power. And on all those fronts, I can fully understand why the company is still seeing its business “momentum continuing in four of our five regions”. What surprises me a little is the chat this morning that, “due to a weaker performance outlook in Latin America and Caribbean”, the company has had to issue a dodgy trading update.
