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 :)  )

    • MHRA saying the benefits outweigh the risks of the experimental vaccines for children looks to be a lie. Myocarditis followed by CoViD-19 vaccines: A cause for concern or a reversible minor effect? | The BMJ The experts are saying more research is urgently needed. Children are at no real risk from Covid, mild symptoms and natural immunity thereafter if they do catch it, but but but save granny, the vulnerable have already been vaccinated. So why the push that everyone on the planet gets the jab as soon as possible? SAGE are already suggesting these vaccines don't work and are no more affective than an annual flu shot. Annual flu shots have been around for a long time, they are hit or miss in that they are based on the previous years dominant strain which may or may not be the current season's dominate strain, if not the shots won't work. So the 'booster' shots being planned are really just big pharma continually chasing after the next dominant variant. So this will go on forever. My own immune system works better than that without any experimental mRNA and DNA altering drugs.   Meanwhile the 'Fire Fauci' bill is going ahead plus a public condemnation of the Chinese development of biological weapons.    
    • You need to get hung up on them, because they happen - I know for a fact that during 2007-09 bear market you could have traded long and made money, because I did it, but the easiest route was shorting and down Get a chart WEEKLY of any forex market or commodity - go back as far as poss and notice the big turns/swings - much more volatile than the SP500 - there's a reason for that  I always say anyone who's making a packet from trading or Investing on SP500 etc go have a crack at the forex or commodity markets - the stock markets natural direction is UPWARDS - especially buy and holders, fund managers would get ripped apart on the forex + comm markets OK - Its totally Impossible to know EXACTLY what the SP500 is going to do on a daily/weekly basis, but it WAS possible to know that a) 2007-09 was going to be a bear market before 2007 even arrived and b) that the market would stop around the level it did.  But this is ultra advanced and very few people are bothered about it I've written a thread on Time Cycles on here - it covers what the SP500 is doing in terms of TIME - if you understand it and think about it, it will put you ahead of 99.99999% of traders out there, because these really big corrections and crashes do not happen out of the blue - they are predictable and forecastable with high reliability years in advance  Look at the chart below - think about what I'm saying: In 1909 WD Gann said that markets always seek their gravity centre, the half way point - that's the 50% level to you and I Traders go on about fib levels - the 50% level is clearly much more important a level  What if you KNEW 1974, 2003 and 2009 should be low points? What an opportunity both long and short! This is why I researched and spent hundreds of hours on Time and Time Cycles for - I missed 2000-2009 because I didn't know what I know now, but I know when the next ones are and I have no plans of missing them These are key once in a lifetime turn points that don't happen often So what I'm trying to point out is that on the stock market the big plunges like 07-09 aren't the norm, but they do happen with very regular intervals, that will catch a lot of people out during certain cycles that the market moves through. with regards to identifying bear markets - yes using a MA to say price below this level is bearish, but it's already bearish as it approaches the level if using price formations such as lower lows etc You don't need to know what I've discovered about time to be able to trade successfully - I was just intrigued if it was possible to be able to time the really big turns etc as I'd prefer to to know if it was
