Blog: Barry Callebaut remains a sweet investment
Dean Best | 21 January 2009
Shares in chocolate maker Barry Callebaut tumbled today (21 January) – at the time of writing, they were down by more than 15% – but investors should remain upbeat about the Swiss firm's prospects.
Sure, first-quarter revenues may have been hit by currency fluctuations and the economic downturn may have whacked sales in western Europe.
However, the market should not be spooked by the fact that Callebaut missed some analysts' forecasts.
The company remains a good long-term bet. Its investment in some of the world's most buoyant emerging chocolate markets – take, for example, its recent spending in Mexico – and its deals with the likes of Cadbury and Nestle mean Callebaut is well positioned to thrive once the economic storm clouds pass.
