Heineken shares slump after flat beer sales in Europe


Recommended Posts

You know valuations are stretched when a company reports sales growth of 8.9% and the stock falls more than 10%. This was the case for Heineken, the world’s second biggest brewer, which fell short of forecasts of a 12% rise.

While European sales were a disappointment, revenues from Asia outperformed. The company also warned of an uptick in raw material costs.


Heineken Q3 numbers

The world's second largest brewer, Heineken, has reported earnings today, which suggests that there is a slowdown in the habits of beer drinkers across the European markets.

Share price chart

Let's take a look at the share price chart which really says it all.

The company said this morning that beer volumes in the latest third quarter (Q3) rose by 8.9% on a like-for-like basis, with the strongest increase in Asia, but compared to the 12% average market expectation. So this was a lot lower in terms of the sheer volumes of beer that's gone through the taps at Heineken.

But you can see here the market reaction is down heavily in today's session. We're currently down by a margin of 10.4% almost two hours into the trading day on this Wednesday, and we're not too far away either from the line of support that was established with the low we saw back on the 7th of March this year, down at 77 37.

This trades in the Dutch market is currently trading at €79.16 and clearly you can see if it breaks this line down here, it will then be at levels not seen since October 2020, so we are considerably lower than we were at the beginning of today's session on the back of this number out today.

Heineken is one of these companies that can benefit a lot from big sporting events. So, the World Cup could be a turning point in the fourth quarter, but we won't know any more about that clearly until well into the period.

And I guess if European teams get through, then there is a chance that Heineken may well see a better result than would otherwise be the case, but that has yet to be sorted out.

The bottom line is that European markets have softened over recent weeks, as reported today by Heineken.

    • Recently, we have noticed the growth of Mobile mining, a lot of projects have sprung up where users earn passively through these mining platforms. Under the same breath, ICE blockchain has evolved as a new digital currency that can be mined or earned from any mobile device. The bourgeoning blockchain is solely based on a community of trust and has a decentralized governance model. The network is built with inherent scalability, such that it can scale a good number of network participants without compromising its speed or efficiency. On its most positive side, the Ice Open Network has high performance and has the innate capacity to process millions of transactions per second, heralding it as one of the fastest blockchains in the world. Through the instrument of its threads and shards, it parallelizes transactions into bits thus significantly increasing throughput and enhancing scalabilty. Apart from being highly scalable, it is an offshoot of TON blockchain that seeks to bring forth decentralized services for data privacy, user control and efficient data management. In the core spirit of Web3, Ice network has a decentralized identity service that allows users to create and manage their own digital identities with top level assurance, privacy and security. Flowing from above, the ICE network has a good number of usecases and more are in the offing as well. Consequently, platforms like Bitget have declared intent to list the native token $ICE on 28th February, with a deposit to earn event. This is a really good way for the project to garner spotlight. I’m optimistic as per its growth in the long run.    
    • Hi KoketsoIG, Thank you for the clarification on that. Cheers
    • Dear @millennium_falcon, Hey there! Thank you for reaching out. Just a heads-up, you can only have one API key for each environment, either live or demo. No third API key can be created.  Thanks, KoketsoIG
