Diageo’s stock (NYSE: DEO) has seen a rise of 16% in a month, while it’s down 14% this year. This compares with 8% and -16% returns for the broader S&P500 index over the same periods, respectively. This outperformance can partly be attributed to strong consumer demand and premiumization, which has aided its sales growth in the recent past. The company has seen its operating margins expand in 2022, led by pricing actions, premiumization, and improved fixed cost absorption from volume growth. These trends are expected to continue in 2023, as well. Furthermore, the company should benefit from the strengthening dollar. It reports its numbers in GBP while it generates a third of its sales from the North American region.
But now that DEO stock has seen a 16% rise in a month, will it continue its upward trajectory, or is a fall imminent?
