Can A G Barr Plc hit 869p?

Scottish soft drink maker (the Irn Bru folk) recently suffered a ‘Royal Visit’, the media showing the Queen and her crowd of hangers-on dutifully pretending they were enjoying fizzy drinks, fresh from melted steel girders. Given conventional sentiment in Scotland, we hold suspicions this sort of nonsense has its roots in business owners dreaming of honours rather than any real belief a picture of Her Majesty knocking back Irn Bru will appeal to their target market. Private Eye, even has a section on this, The Order of The Brown Nose…

What always proves amusing, with special thanks to Twitter, is the framing of crowds behind barriers in photographs. Invariably, someone shows a real photograph of the event and it becomes clear journalists concept of “crowds” falls short of the truth. Of course, doubtless Covid-19 is making it difficult for the usual suspects to be encouraged to look enthusiastic, schools being hesitant at their pupils being bussed to an event just to make up numbers.

Once, as a child, this writer experienced at first hand the bullying tactics employed, a squad of police officers conducting a sweep through a holiday park to enlist ‘volunteers’ for a royal visit. Each child was even given a Union flag on a stick to wave. Unfortunately for the police, children at holiday park tend make thorough explorations of the area which ensured by the time the royal train appeared, virtually every child had made their way to the end of the platform, where an absence of fencing created an easy escape. What happened to the obligatory flags is a mystery but it’s unlikely any found their way into a bin.

 

Cynical nature aside, A G Barr look like their share price is poised for some action.

Presently trading around 547p, the share need only fizz above 567p to become interesting. Such a trigger level should prove capable of allowing the price to bubble up to an initial 614p. As the chart below shows, this has the potential of the price regaining its long term Red uptrend, creating a realistic ambition of future recovery to 700p. This year has experienced some quite amazing weather here on Scotland’s west coast and despite (until now) reduced tourist numbers, soft drink sales will have been very high. Hopefully, for A G Barr, this shall follow through with vastly improved income over last years performance, giving sufficient excuse for a future boost above 700p to a longer term 889p. Surprisingly, this calculation tier also gives share price movements the opportunity to cover the circled gap on the chart with startling accuracy.

SUCCESS above means both FAST & SLOW targets were met. ‘CESS means just the FAST target met and probably the next time it is exceeded, movement to the SLOW target shall commence.

Our commentary is in two sections. Immediately below are today’s updated comments. If our commentary remains valid, the share can be found in the bottom section which has a RED heading. Hopefully, this will mean you no longer need to flip back through previous reports. HYPERLINKS DISABLED IN THIS VERSION

Please remember, all prices are mid-price (halfway between the Buy and Sell). When we refer to a price CLOSING above a specific level, we are viewing the point where we can regard a trend as changing. Otherwise, we are simply speculating on near term trading targets. Our website is www.trendsandtargets.com.

UPDATE. We often give an initial and a secondary price. If the initial is exceeded, we still expect it to fall back but the next time the initial is bettered, the price should continue to the secondary. The converse it true with price drops.
