    "Carlsberg is behind in digital, it will cost to catch-up
    Carlsberg has noted that the group is behind in digital presence. This is evidenced when comparing the Facebook 'like' presence of the flagship Carlsberg brand against that of the Heineken brand – on either an absolute or volume-relative basis. We compare A&P spending more closely in the margin section." UBS

    "Recent European Nielsen data (off-trade volume and sales) indicates that Heineken continues to perform well in Western Europe – a key market for the premiumisation strategy given aging demographics and limited pricing power. Heineken's sales growth in the last 12 weeks has been +3.6% vs the market overall +1.9% and Heineken has gained share in the last 4 weeks as well as over the last 52 weeks. Carlsberg in contrast has lost share over all three period, in the last 12 weeks sales were -3.8%. " UBS

    "Heineken best-placed for 2016, reiterate Buy; Carlsberg downgrade to Sell (from Neutral) " UBS « "We continue to believe Heineken's category exposure is the most attractive within the global brewers given it has the highest exposure to premium beer, cider and low/no alcohol categories. These categories over the long term offer stronger volume growth, higher price/mix and better margins than mainstream lager. Furthermore the flagship Heineken brand is the largest global brand by volume with well-established brand equity (see below for global Facebook 'like' comparisons) which allows Heineken to more easily penetrate new markets.

    Head of Equity Strategy / Saxo Bank
    Denmark
    Apple reports FY15 Q4 earnings on Tuesday. Investors will be focusing a lot on China due to the ongoing uncertainty of China's economy but also the country's importance for Apple which accounted for 27% of revenue in the previous quarter. Nothing suggests that demand is slowing down and we maintain our bullish view on the stock. In addition 367 companies will report earnings.

    Denmark
    The recent decline in Carlsberg shares have created an opportunity to buy Carlsberg and sell Heineken as a pair trade. We have set the maximum holding period to 45 trading sessions due to Heineken’s earnings release on October 28.

    Earnings Watch: Will energy boost consumer stocks?
    The earnings season is halfway through with the conclusion so far being that US earnings have been strong across the board and European reports mixed again on weak revenue. However, as the lower euro and energy prices work their way through income statements, European companies will positively surprise. Next week's earnings releases will have a clear focus on consumer companies.
