I think maybe you're confused about what DEO does. They are the single largest producer, distributor, and marketer of alcohol in the world. They have a 44 billion dollar market cap and profit margins that have hovered around 20% for years. And sin stocks do extraordinarily well in economic downturns, as people tend to drink more when times are tough. I put this stock as a big ol buy and hold at it's current price.

I lived off booze alone for a short period of time, it does have some nutritive qualities.
However, I've seen the light. Booze is NOT foood.
The margins are HUGE on booze. Ever pick up a bar tab?

Vodka does have calories and it may make you feel like a stallion in bed, but I'd argue it's still not a food...

If this is your "food" it doesn't matter,
cause you'll be dying young anyway!
