Unilever (ULVR) - Share Chat

As everyone might have heard Unilever has warned of slower sales and an earning report miss or 3-5%.
Will this earning report be enough to break Unilever’s strong trend. The warning has caused the stock to drop 7%, whilst another competitor P&G is still climbing. What are everyone’s thoughts?

Unilever’s part of a defensive tilt in my high-yield portfolio. I’m not overly concerned about the latest news because it had been looking pretty expensive anyway over the past year. I’ve been waiting for a dip so I can buy more.


Hindsight is a wonderful thing but £53 was certainly the time to sell.


Not really an Earnings miss, they’re just saying growth has slowed. that’s not the same as no growth.

They say “Earnings, margin and cash were not expected to be hit.”

I think the drop might be a bit overdone


Is this in your opinion the dip?

Personally I don’t think the trend, will be broken I believe the growth will slow down, but still bullish/neutral on future growth.

I’m no expert so I wouldn’t like to say, it’s certainly a dip though. I imagine we’ll find out if it’s a blip or due to more deep-seated problems when the full earnings report is published at the end of January.

Is this a dip, we can enter?
Someone mentioned dividend and sell off…

Any discussion points are welcome… :blush:

I’m certainly keen to catch this dip and increase my holding.

Seeing it as a short term 15% gain is good enough to me when it gets back up to pre covid levels, after a bit of a rollercoaster year.

The divesture won’t harm the overall performance of the group and remaining brands long term IMO. Alot of the longer term ETFs hold quite high percentage s of this and that’s good enough for me.

All my own opinion and DYOR ofcourse.

You know that ETFs don’t make the conscious decision to hold Unilever though, right? They hold it because it’s part of an index like the FTSE or the cosumer staple index.


Apologies, relative newbie terminology clanger, I meant investment funds pulled together by BG, BNY, Rathbones etc.

Any reason this has taken a dip today? My thinking is the dividends announced today is less than last years on at q2
I’m wanting to hold a position on this just wonder if it will take a dip some more?

I believe the drop is due to - Expected cost increases hurting margins. I believe they said in the past that the would be able to increase prices to offset this, but they guided recently this may not be achievable.
