djderry: Another of the completely undervalued companies in my portfolio.As an investor,I'm completely at peace with that.It's the lot of the patient investor.Today's news of a further acquisition of another LPG distributor in the US is another step in the process of building real scale in the business. Actually,it's just business as usual. The share price has gone nowhere for a couple of years.Yet DCC continues to compound growth approx 15% a year.One day,sooner or later,the share price will double. As a patient investor,I'm completely used to that as well.
djderry: Impressive results.Aside from the pandemic fallout,there's also a conglomerate discount,the market has failed to value this company properly for some years now.For the long term investor,one gets quite used to this.
djderry: I think they've taken over 22 (?) Tesco forecourts.No big deal.As investors know,the shareprice is one of the least useful bits of information about a company,unless,of course,you are about to buy or sell.The share price has gone nowhere over the past three years.Fine.Most investing is about the art of inactivity.When the share price does move ahead,I'll still be holding.

ali47fish: 2 contrasting verdicts shareacast-30/1/17-Gs bullish update 11 feb Goldman Sachs has upgraded DCC to 'buy' from 'neutral' and lifted the price target to 7,400p from 7,000p, saying recent underperformance provides an attractive entry point. GS noted the shares have underperformed the Stoxx 600 by 15% since November 2016, mostly likely caught up in a broader sector rotation. Its de-rating creates an attractive entry point for two reasons, the bank said. Firstly, it pointed to the fact that DCC is not a typical defensive stock, and secondly, it highlighted its significant M&A growth potential and superior returns profile, which it said warrant a premium valuation. "For the last four reported years, consensus earnings per share estimates for DCC have been revised up by 13%, versus the Stoxx 600 down 18%. We believe M&A and consistent delivery of organic improvement will continue to drive these upgrades over time." Goldman reckons DCC has the financial headroom to spend close to £1bn on additional M&A over the next two years, based on debt and equity financing. It said that this, along with the pricing of its deals, could add 16% a year to earnings growth. "At the same time, and owing to its operational efficiency and strong cash generation, we believe that DCC will continue to deliver cash returns significantly ahead of its business services and consumer staples peers." and the fool finds expensive This growth stock is set to lag the FTSE 100 in 2017 DCC Group Image: DCC Group; Fair use Peter Stephens | Tuesday, 7th February, 2017 | More on: CPIDCC 0 inShare Finding shares that could outperform the FTSE 100 is never a straightforward task. Certainly, unearthing businesses with bright futures is possible for even the most time-poor investor. However, in many cases much of the growth potential of a business has already been priced-in by the market. Reporting today is a stock which, while offering a strong track record of growth, seems to be overvalued at the present time. Upbeat performance The update released today by sales and marketing company DCC (LSE: DCC) shows that it made encouraging progress in its third quarter. Operating profit was ahead of the prior year and in line with expectations. In particular, DCC Energy benefitted from strong organic volume growth in LPG as well as sound organic growth in both Retail & Fuelcard and Oil. Similarly, DCC Healthcare overcame the headwind of weaker sterling and benefitted from an improved performance in DCC Health & Beauty Solutions. Meanwhile, DCC Technology’s operating profit grew sharply versus the prior year and it benefitted from the CUC acquisition. DCC Environmental saw good organic growth, which made a positive contribution to the company’s overall performance. Looking ahead, the acquisition of Esso Retail Norway for a total consideration of £235m (also announced today) could generate a return on invested capital employed of around 15% in the first year. Valuation However, DCC’s valuation appears to take into account its upbeat performance and its future prospects. In terms of the latter, its bottom line growth rate of 8% next year and 4% the year after represents a significant downward step from the double-digit gains recorded in recent years. Despite the lower profitability expected over the medium term, DCC continues to trade on a relatively high valuation. For example, it has a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 22.8. This equates to a price-to-earnings growth (PEG) ratio of 3.8 when combined with its growth forecast. Due to its high valuation, the company’s share price gains in 2017 may fail to match those of the FTSE 100. Certainly, DCC is performing well as a business and has a bright long-term future. But its valuation appears to be excessive, given its near-term profit growth forecasts. i added this mornig as i like the divi and the m@A potential- any comment welcome!
scottishfield: very well. If you look at the website you'll get an idea. http://www.dcc.ie/investor-relations/share-price-information/share-chart.aspx
