Look at the Great Depression, Hershey’s was one of the few companies that not only survived, but thrived. As such, its not a big surprise that Hershey’s, as well as Molson Coors, and Campbell’s Soup continue to perform well during this latest economic downturn.
In the past year Consumer Staples have outperformed the broader market and the sector is starting to heat up, up 1.6% over the past 7 days.
Beverages are one of the leading sub-industries in the sector, and within beverages Distillers and Wine Makers have outperformed over the past 3 months.
Rogue Baron (OTCMKTS: SHNJF) is one company in the subindustry that is worth looking at. The company has announced a distribution deal with UK-based Oak & Still. The deal focuses on the marketing and distribution of SHNFJ’s award-winning Japanese whisky brand Shinju.
This deal with Oak & Still—the marketing arm of UK wine and spirt distribution giant Fine Wine Sellers—ensures that Shinju will be placed alongside some of the most notable names in European and international spirits.
Now, as Shinju’s presence grows, so does the demand for bottles of the whisky. This could lead Rogue Baron into new networks and additional distribution channels.
Additional distribution networks could mean exponential growth for Rogue Baron and the Shinju Japanese Whisky brand. Investor’s should monitor SHNJF here.
