••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score

Guru Investment Theses on Diageo PLC

Gabelli Asset Management Comments on Diageo plc - May 13, 2014

Diageo plc (2.4%) (DEO)(DEO - $124.59 - NYSE) is the leading global producer of alcoholic beverages, with brands including Smirnoff, Johnny Walker, Ketel One, Captain Morgan, Crown Royal, J&B, Baileys, Tanqueray, and Guinness. The company has a balanced geographic presence in both mature and emerging markets, and it benefits from the trend of consumers around the world trading up to premium brand products. In 2011 and 2012, Diageo made several acquisitions that enhanced its presence in emerging markets: Mey Icki, the leading spirits company in Turkey; Shui Jing Fang, a leading Chinese baiju producer; Ypioca, the leading cachaca producer in Brazil; and an increased stake in Halico, the leading domestic spirits producer in Vietnam. Diageo also made an investment in United Spirits, the leading spirits producer in India, which will provide the company with the leading position in another fast-growing emerging market. Longtime executive Ivan Menezes took over as CEO on July 1, 2013, and we expect him to continue to drive the company's growth in both mature and emerging markets.

Bill Nygren Comments on Diageo PLC - Apr 08, 2014

Diageo PLC (DEO - $125)(DEO)
Diageo is the world’s largest spirits manufacturer. Diageo has a portfolio of spirits brands that is among the best in the industry, including a leading scotch franchise that is nearly impossible to replicate. These strong brands are supported by the company’s global scale, which allows for meaningful efficiencies in manufacturing, distribution and marketing. As a result of these advantages, we believe Diageo will maintain its excellent competitive position. At the same time, revenues have grown consistently for years due to a combination of pricing power and emerging markets exposure, and this growth should continue for the foreseeable future. We believe this well-managed company is selling at a large discount to intrinsic value. Further, Diageo has a dividend yield of 2.5%.
