Distil PLC AIM

Hi

 

Wondering peoples opinions on this AIM company, made some good profit from them over the past 15 months but strange flow from them. Great results in sales but extra marketing costs, huge brand in the portfolio worth more than the market capital of Distil.

 

Wondering if I should close up or wait it out.

Michael,

 

DIS is a very small co (circa £12m market cap) so I doubt there'll be much coverage on here.

I would say go and check your source that the 'huge brand in the portfolio worth more than the market cap of Distil'

 

Last night I looked at the annual report and if you are referring to Blavod, this is recognized in the balance sheet as an asset worth about -from memory now - £1.3m, about 10% of market cap, not more than.

 

 

Keen for you to post your arguments for the company and I can help look as some aspects of it, I did get a bottle of Red Leg spiced rum fro the company earlier this year - it is very good rum(!) but a crowded market place..

 

Keen to hear more from you..

Hi Rimmy,

 

Thanks for the reply, I was talking about Redleg as the biggest brand in their portfolio which is now available in all major supermarkets in the UK. The company itself seems a bit weird over the last few months I see the growth of assets but its in line with the growth of the company with increased investment in marketing there is a bigger spend but all in all is very positive however share price keeps dipping. We seem to have been waiting almost 5 months for their announcement of the US supplier which again seems a little odd

 

I agree its for sure a crowded market place (I know I work in it!) but there is very little in terms of medium priced like Redleg which gives it a little edge.

Redleg is good, I agree. But I still doubt it is worth more than the market cap (happy to be shown otherwise)


Good luck if you do take a position here, btw. It may come good for you and I hope it does. But for me, I would reconsider if price dropped to around 1.5p

 

Personally, I'd still go with FEVR. The spirits of the day will shift around but FEVR has firmly rooted itself as the mixer of choice and knocked Schweppes off the top spot. I don't think the competition stand a chance now and expect a takeover will be the end game here (Diageo, Britvic, AG Barr.. who knows.. (I hold some FEVR, so perhaps a bit biased :)  )

    • Folk will continue to believe what they want to believe. A nice, friendly, wholesome narrative is preferable to one which questions whether the whole thing has been a major error of judgement. Emperor and new clothes scenario.  Yes my wife is not the only one having trouble with AZ, thousands of others are (check out twitter and FB (though FB groups regarding vaccine and side effects are being shut down regularly, as freedom of speech is great as long as it's not controversial or contradictory to the prevailing govt narrative). However, we are being labelled conspiracy theorists for questioning the validity of the presented evidence re AZ and even Covid. Which is news to us. We are just a normal family doing our best to get by. Noone wants to hear any "bad" news, even if it has merit. So by extension, being rational has translated into being irrational. Many folk are sleepwalking hoping this dream will end, not seeing the wood for the trees, instead of being awake (not woke, but awake) and affecting change through observation and exchange of information. But observation is a rare commodity and fear discourages free exchange of information. It's all "meh meh meh" .....and they want to give the vaccine to kids ...have they no shame?
    • Oliver Smith @ollysmithtravel 15h After three lockdowns, we've got Europe's highest Covid death toll, its 2nd biggest economic downturn, 50,000+ non-Covid excess deaths, a 5m+ NHS waiting list, a mental health crisis, and we still haven't got our freedoms back. But people still think lockdowns work.   .  
    • I remember the BBC reporting in  front of world trade building 7 saying it had collapsed when it was clearly still standing and then hours later it "suddenly" collapsed - Sept 11th 2001 David Icke did a great publication on that "terrorist attack" which lead to UK/USA forces invading Iraq and afghanistan, along with implementing onerous checks at all airports since - 20 years later we still haven't had another plane hijacked and crashed into anything, probably because if it had it would prove that aviation fuel can't melt steel structural joists, or bring a building down in a vertical fashion as per a controlled explosion I'm yet to be convinced on Covid, but it absolutely fits in with the totalitarian tiptoe Icke says is happening and fits in being an absolute valid reason to vaccinate the entire globe
