Very genuine question being raised, why Fast-foods companies are not factored for ESG Concerns, while they themselves are very open about risk of their products on people's health ??
1. Didn't understood last column last second para?
2. ITC has low PE and high ESG score and jubilant has high PE and low ESG score, what does it indicate?
For what reason the Fast Food companies had made such an open statement about their products in RHP?
Why are there concerns over inclusion of fast food chains in the ESG segment because the Government had already increased the Tax-slabs for junk foods?
Comparison of Junk food with Alcohol and Tobacco, is it actually relatable?
If they are so concerned about the people and ready to filter the grains, what is the bottom line?
What's about IT sector especially gaming segment? Isn't it addictive, isn't it harming the youths, shouldn't the government regulate them from the same lens, and shouldn't the investors be worried about it?
Under what head will fast food chains fall under in ESG?
1. How is the company Jubilant Foodworks trading at a P/E of of 126.3 despite having no profits? (1st column, 2nd para, 6th line)
2. The motive of government behind raising taxes is that the consumers won’t be able to afford these products and ultimately the demand will reduce- is it correct?
3. It is quite obvious that despite companies disclosing their nutritional values people will keep consuming fast food and amidst that if govt. increases taxes so can we conclude that govt. is looking forward to boost its revenue?
4. On one side they say that that P/E of fast-food companies’ is very high as compared to cigarette and liquor companies and on the other side they say that there is no sharp difference between the valuations of sin stocks and fast food stocks. Which to believe?
i think its wrong going on the morals or sentiments and ESG score is just a formality. knowing that even fast food products are equally harmful as cigarettes business, can u explain this article with ITC example as its around 85% of revenue comes from cigarette business and has strong fundamentals and still trading at undervalue
How does ESG score work? How do they rate companies in absolute values for such a non- financial aspect?
