Question For Anyone Familiar With Diageo (DEO)

Noticed it was down today, & was thinking of starting a small position.
I noticed both the revenues & earnings are down over the past five years.



Have they been selling off less profitable parts of their business ?




The dividend payout ratio is fairly high


Would appreciate any/all comments/suggestions

Thanks

You don't have any information that is not already reflected in the price of the stock. Hence, any bet on a Diageo (or any other single stock) is essentially the same as putting money in a slot machine. You might win and you might lose.

My view: very attractive business (high returns on capital), and fully valued for it. It's not 'down', just less 'up' : Less than a year ago it was below $100.

I'd consider evaluating it fully for investing purposes, if the price would drop below 100USD, possibly even 80USD.
