“Sod the wine, I want to suck on the writing. This man White is an instinctive writer, bloody rare to find one who actually pulls it off, as in still gets a meaning across with concision. Sharp arbitrage of speed and risk, closest thing I can think of to Cicero’s ‘motus continuum animi.’

Probably takes a drink or two to connect like that: he literally paints his senses on the page.”

Someone Has A Look At Fosters

The Oz Finance Gurus Follow Drinkster


You gotta be kidding!

Australia Day, not much going down in the business sector – in a manner of speaking – and somebody at The Oz thinks Fosters has bigger failures to admit.

Reporting Goldman Sachs JBWere analyst Ian Abbott’s warning that Fosters still holds a total of $2.2 billion of wine-related intangible assets on its balance sheet, The Australian says Fosters “could be set to announce further write-downs of up to $700million”.

These people obviously took twelve whole months to read DRINKSTER’s piece, first published in The Independent Weekly in February 2008.
