CVSG looking weak again - I might have to exit if it goes too low and accept the small loss as a penalty for not completing my research first. Haven't had to chance to mull it over properly yet hence the initial small stake.

You might be right Alpha, I am also in GB group. I already had a decent holding in CVSG, and I am adding, as it drops, in progressively larger amounts.

I held these until recently and was intrigued when I saw the drop on the statement. It reminds me of GBG around October last year - a growth share on a chunky pe where a small miss led to c42% off the price, same here equates to 862p. I know it sounds harsh but there must have been a number of fearful distressed sellers here, which IMHO is the ideal situation to be buying in. There was a considerable rebound there (see below) so I couldn't resist a buy at just over £9. https://uk.advfn.com/p.php?pid=chartscreenshot&u=VZJtIZdGsd8q6mZdTBvcefaUo%2Bo%2FYevKbCRHl2eVvJI%3D&kslash=s

Trytotakeiteasy - I think there are a few significant barriers to entry for what CVSG have done - they have taken traditionally very independent practitioners and brought them together in a loose corporate structure to give them more buying power - that isn't easy to do with Vets who are very much used to being their own bosses. The other thing to remember is that there is a shortage of vets in the UK - that isn't going to get any better post brexit - so Vets therefore tend to carve out territories between them - don't set up too near each other - there is no need as they can have a decent catchment area all to themselves. Therefore in order to each CVSGs lunch I would have to a) persuade a load of vets to work together and b) persuade them to set up in an area already serviced by another Vet instead of going to an area where they would have a much more captive audience. Now I don't know if the CVSG price is a fair multiple of earnings etc but I don't see them struggling to make a profit and so there must be a floor on the sp

wagtailflower - don't you think increased competition could hit them. What about the valuation. There aren't huge barriers to entry for vet chains.

Sold a chunk today and bought them all back at a much lower level (not quite at the bottom), intending to increase my holdings. Would be nice to see Director(s) adding (other than through options).

As a member of the profession and knowing this company well, this seems like a big overreaction/correction to the AGM update. Unlike its competitors CVSG has nicely wrapped up the "veterinary pound" such that revenue remains within the various divisions such as primary practice, referral and laboratory etc. Owners will continue to spend on their animals no matter how much sacrifice they personally may have to make so I see this as a big opportunity to continue adding to my holding.

CVSG IC TIP. CVS continues to acquire at pace, has financial firepower to fund those acquisitions & is expanding its geographic reach. A prime example of an expensive, high quality company being hit hard by a minor set back and we think it presents another buying opportunity.👍;

IC TIP UPDATE 1st Dec 2017: Veterinary group CVS (CVSG) continues to fall this morning after yesterday’s meltdown. The AGM statement - which highlighted slower like-for-like sales growth and a difficulty in recruitment - did not go down well with shareholders. The shares closed down 22 per cent, wiping off all the gains made in the last year. We think this is an enormous overreaction. CVS continues to acquire at pace, has the financial firepower to fund those acquisitions and is in the midst of expanding its geographic reach. This is a prime example of an expensive, high quality company being hit hard by a minor set back and we think it presents another buying opportunity.

The PE is high, but management have a good record of building the business. There is more organic growth by acquisitions in the UK and we're just started in Netherlands. Would this model work in other countries? I like the animal hospital and crematoria fed by the surgeries - maybe add drug distribution?Main question in my mind is whether the % expansion rate can continue.Share price is volatile, which provides opportunities for trading, but the trend is up and I would be a pure holder if it was more consistent.

Consensus PE to 30th June 27.9x. Two years ago it was 22.9x but PEG is only 0.8x, so it constantly grows in to its value. It has been a lovely Buy & Hold.

A well -thought out response. Thank you. I still think that as the article states, Microsoft PE was 100 at one point when in its high -growth phase but then retreated as things changed. Whilst PETS might be a different animal, CVS at 75 ... surely cannot be compared to Microsoft! Therefore it is not for me.
