National Grid - 5.6% Loss. I think it is opportunistic buy a stake in what should be a state monopoly. A defensive stock because its revenue it guaranteed. The market has probably valued it correctly, but it should appreciate with the rest of the market on the back of increasing savings caused by a demographic bulges in the third age group
Netflix - 47.85% Gain. I am always thinking of selling this. Producers could have the ability to withhold supply if they started a rival, like Tidal in music to Spotify. However, there is no competitor at the moment and I hope I will be able to choose the correct moment to sell. I will look out for signals of sentiment within the market. If Disney offered their own subscription service could they out-bid Nertflix for content, or in the bidding process drive up costs and eat into margin or they will have to increase subscription fees and this will test the elasticity of demand for a product that is almost a ubiquitous unconscious payment every month; would an increase in price increase the visibility of this charge and the consumer might question its value.
Starbucks - 24.16% gain. I think it is an easily exportable model and it has not penetrated India, China or Africa to a great extent. I think a careful approach to the strictness of imposing a corporate culture is less important new revenue streams and growth. Coca-Cola is the example to follow in using a low tech supply chain, and low tech product to infiltrate low tech markets.
