Able to buy emerging brands such as George Clooney's vodka brand. Rebound in travel increasing demand for alcohol. High dividend yield is good for investors. Not worried about looming recession, but high end products/brands won't be affected.

SELL
He sold this. No compelling reason to own it. It recovered with the market and offers reasonable metrics, but there are better stocks--he wants good cash flow to protect him in a downturn. He's getting picky.
food processing
SELL
He sold Diageo recently, because it scored poorly in valuation and dividend (decelerating). Consumers may buy fewer of their brands because of hot inflation. He owned this for a long time, but it was time to move on.

PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Jul 28/21, Down 6%) Is the fastest-growing spirits/drinks company now with revenue growth nearing 10%. It carries a huge portfolio of premium brands which are immune to a recession. DEO is a core holding. A world-class business.
food processing
TOP PICK
#1 player globally. Focused on higher-end brands in all of the sectors they're in. So they can charge more, and their margins are growing. Spirits are gaining space on the shelf. Organic growth of 4-5%. Beverages are all about distribution, and they have the best. No one like them in the sector. Dividends grow over time. Yield is 1.58%. (Analysts’ price target is $200.07)
food processing
WEAK BUY
People are probably drinking a little more than they otherwise would. He was negative before COVID-19 because all their growth was by tuck-in acquisitions. Cannabis has unrealistic expectations.
food processing
TOP PICK
It is being impacted by CoVid19 because sales are down in China and fewer travelers aren't buying them. They have great brands, margins and solid dividend growth. They should do well in a recessionary environment. It is a great opportunity to get into a great business that has been too expensive for a while. (Analysts’ price target is $179.61)
food processing
DON'T BUY
Fine company and well known. It is a source of funds when the economy is improving. It is a cyclical market so it is not timely. It is a defensive company but this is not the time to be defensive.
food processing
DON'T BUY
They've done an amazing job positioning in the high-end spirits business. It's had a great run but the PE is 26x with mid-single-digit growth. There's little room to grow in this mature industry.
food processing
DON'T BUY
Trades at a high 25x earnings for a rock-solid group of beverages with decent dividend growth. Overall, it's too pricey for him.
food processing
SELL ON STRENGTH
He took some profits. Pays a decent 2-3% yield. It didn't do well in the mid-2010s, and today's price is slightly ahead performance. DEO is very well run and a play on rising middle-class incomes in emerging markets.
food processing
BUY on WEAKNESS
A alcohol drinks company, trading at a high 21x earnings. Well-run. They've made and integrated good acqusitions, and have spent money on developing new products as well as marketing/sales. The U.S. is their best market. Great free cash flow. A lot of these companies are thinking of cannabis. DEO sells all over the world. Buy on pullbacks--they have periods when margins reduce when they launch products with marketing.
food processing
DON'T BUY
World's largest alcoholic beverage company in the world. Minimum growth business in the last couple of years, Solid dividend payer. You are paying above market multiple for a very low growth company.
food processing
DON'T BUY

Following the crowd on cannabis infused drinks. Problem is they’re not growing, free cash flow is falling. Going to have to cut costs. Slowdown in North America and Europe, and now Asia is not booming. Difficult to understand how they’re going to infuse alcohol with cannabis.

food processing
DON'T BUY

It was a great company when it went through their acquisition phase. However, about three years ago they ran out of big companies to buy. Now they have to decide if they going into other beverage markets or decide to cut costs to grow earnings. It still looks too expensive and he would stay away.
