Brexit Day

I think you all have already heard the big news of today.


I have written in my last post about Coca-Cola European Partners this:

As the market has rallied (or at least not crashed) for about 7 years I want to have enough cash arround. We have the Brexit-voting soon and the FED maybe will raise interest rates this year – I want to be prepared for any scenario so I bought just a small position for my portfolio. I am willing to add to the Position if the price will decline while the business-outlook stays the same.


Coca-Cola European Partners

Coca-Cola European Partners today is down more than 5% (and it didn’t do well the time before either). I bought some more stocks today for my personal portfolio. Of course the business-outlook are not the same when 20% of your revenue is in a currency that is down to its lowest in over 30 years (in comparison to EUR it’s less dramatic)

Remember, CCEP’s revenue:




Info: Britvic lost today ~11% (in Euro) I still consider buying it. but I want to do more research on them.

Remember, Britvic’s revenue:



Svenska Handelsbanken

Handelsbanken, a hight quality bank from Sweden with UK exposure, is down like almost everything today. But not as much as other European Banks. I will look at them in the near future.



As everybody, I don’t know what will come next but I am sure that the world will still turn and people still want to make business and quality management will still do  quality buisiness. As always, don’t listen to the media too much, especially the low quality media, they make their money by good* headlines. I think the best advice to give is to do it like the brits: keep calm and move on. I still want to have enough cash arround and want to be prepared for any scenario – I am searching for opportunities now.

*good means extreme ones that attract the most people

Britvic – First look at the british beverage corporation/bottler

I have looked a little bit more into the “Bottler Universe” and have found on the Coca-Cola Hellenic Bottling Company Investors Relation homepage a nice tool were you can compare their (Coca-Cola Helenic) performance against Peers. (link)

The listed peers:

  • Coca-Cola Enterprise
  • Britvic
  • Heineken
  • Diageo
  • Carlsberg


I have done this with a setting over 5 years and all peers; Britvic and Heineken performed the best (and both outperform the FTSE100).


Just by the name you can guess that Britvic is either a cheap bed sold by IKEA or a british bottling company that bottles own brands and PepsiCo brands. Lets find out more about them – latest 2015 annual report (link).

Tim McAleenan Jr. about Viacom (link)

(the real risk to Viacom shareholders is that the pace of cord cutting speeds up during a recession when people cut back and advertising revenues shrivel, and then Viacom might conceivably need to borrow money to service its $12 billion debt burden while this is going on.)


The great PunchCard Blog with an very interesting (and long) post about MLPs (link)

When operating properly, midstream companies should be stable and boring.  They are a utility-like business that should be valued like a utility.  Not content with utility-like valuations, Wall Street attempted to make them more exciting.  When Wall Street makes the boring look exciting, investors should hold on tight to their wallets.


The great valueandopportunity-blog with a nice sum-of-parts valuation of Old Mutual plc  (link)

The business

Old Mutual is a combination of 4 major businesses:

1. A majority stake in listed South African Nedbank
2. A non-listed but quite succesful UK private wealth management
3. A majority stake in a listed US Asset manager (OM Asset Management)
4. An Emerging market insurance company headquartered in South Africa
