It's still 70% an oil and gas distribution business - healthcare side down 19%, Tech business down 17%. Share price still lower than seven years ago. No share buybacks and management don't seem to have any interest in buying shares at such a great price?
Seems like the only people making money on DCC shares are the FTSE day traders

Management is excellent,driving profits and ROI.I want my management to run the company,not waste time in promoting the share .It's not a 'dud',it's doing great.
Obviously,if they were to initiate a share buyback at these levels,buying shares for half-nothing,I think most shareholders would approve.They could muster a billion pounds of firepower if they wish.However,afterwards,as the share price doubled,they would need to stop and not overpay.

The Sunday Times(29/01/23)has an article reviewing some Irish companies and activist investor involvement. Here's their comment regarding DCC - "market darling turned dud, DCC looks like a sitting duck"

Some sensible advice

Well, I'm not the biggest fan of this company or its management but I'm beginning to take an interest in its sagging share price. Oversold? Maybe, but I'll continue watching for now, Wait perhaps for the next trading update or some positive (sic) management initiatives.

There has certainly been no shortage of broker downgrades over the last few months. Barclays dropped their (already low) target to £41 today. No sign of any share buybacks or large insider buys which would be expected if the stock is undervalued.
I'll stick with backing shares like Ryanair where top level remuneration is directly connected to share performance

chart still shows a steady downtrend and yet the analyst only downgraded it to 7000 after results . Market should bounce today after better showing by US indices and might help DCC to recover a bit

The dividend increase over the last 5/6 years has been little compensation for the 40% share price decline over the same period

dcme,you make some interesting and valid points.Obviously,when a company's share price does not keep up with the business for a period of time,a little like a football team underperforming,the simplistic approach is to call for a break-up and 'sack the manager'respectively.
I say simplistic because the capital of the company is not being eroded,it's been invested into bolt-on acquisitions which cumulatively increase growth rates.Yes,they do (in one division) distribute fuel but much if it is LNG,one of the 'cleaner'fuels.This business isn't going anywhere soon.(I also own tobacco companies,I'm afraid).Health and Beauty continues to outperform,and they continue to build out in distribution.The 'fossil fuel' business is not about 'greenwashing'.They are making the real economy greener and the links they have,through the distribution business,enables this.As a long term investor,I have often seen periods of underperformance.Often,I make the really serious gains in year seven,for some strange reason.

Alfred,if I were you,I wouldn't invest here.I would find a company that I was comfortable with,do substantial due diligence and then invest an amount that would be meaningful in a portfolio context.
I would also beware of selective use of two data points in coming to any set conclusion.I would broaden my examination to include,for example,adjusted operating profit,up 11.2%,revenue up 32%,EPS growth up 11.1%,adjusted earnings per share up 13.8%.I could go on.
However,at the risk of repeating myself,a one year,or for that matter a five year period is quite arbitrary.
How has the company performed over its lifetime? Well,a 14% per annum profit and an ROCE of 19% over 28 years is,I suggest, evidence of the calibre of DCC.
The reference to 'empire building'is ,I would suggest,rather tenuous.Growth through acquisition ( having bought hundreds of companies) is one of DCC's key competencies.Acquisition growth this year alone amounted to 9%).If an acquired company does not meet growth targets,( very rare occasion),they are divested.
Where the reference to 'empire building' is,perhaps,accurate, is in a way the poster failed to comprehend.The company does,indeed,seek to become one of the market leaders,or top two/three companies in the areas in which they specialise.This aim,and the 28 year history of achieving their targets,have profound implications.DCC in 2030 will be a far greater company by revenue and profits.
As an investor,this is what I am seeking.
I'm also willing to wager that the share price will have greatly increased.
