Delta Djakarta, Ryohin Keikaku, Inabata & Co, Haier D-share, Japan's coming tourism boom
Last Wednesday, I published a post about an upcoming tourism boom in Japan. And since that post, the Japanese government has announced that they will ease restrictions further.
Yesterday’s deep-dive was on Indonesia’s second-largest beer producer Delta Djakarta, which sells Anker-, Carlsberg- and San Miguel-branded beer across the country. Compared to the larger competitor Bintang, Anker beers have a stronger taste, are cheaper and also more difficult to find in supermarkets. If tourism to Bali continues to recover, the stock will trade around P/E 9.8x, EV/EBIT 6.2x and a dividend yield of 7.7%.
