prokartace: Now, now boys take it easy. As with every share of this nature there is always an argument for whe way that current and historic figures are interpreted but, while I understand you both have differing opinions, Alfred I don't understand what your interest is in having this discussion. You clearly don't, or shouldn't, have a holding so what is your game?
djderry: 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.
alfred: Well, it's easy to show an increase in profits if you keep blowing resources on acquisitions but adjusted earnings per share have only increased by 35% in five years, not exactly a growth stock is it? The dividend yield is only whisker over 3%, not exactly an income stock either. This is why the stock seems (to some) to have an unduly modest rating. The management needs to give more attention to shareholder value and less on empire building'
km18: DCC Plc today announced that it would purchase U.S. sales and distribution business Almo Corporation for $610 million on a cash-free, debt-free basis. The deal counts as the company’s largest acquisition to date as it looks to expand its technology unit in North America. The company also committed a further £550m to acquisitions in FY22. So more acquisitive growth is likely in coming years. The business was growing steadily ahead of COVID and should post a new record topline in FY22. The same applies to net profit and EPS. Valuation is quite attractive with forward PE ratio of 12.8 ranked 2nd out of 11 in the Personal & Household Products & Services market. PS ratio at 0.36 is also ranked 2nd for the sector. Balance sheet is decent quality, £1.8b cash, net debt just £0.6b. But share price lacks momentum and has been trading sideways for 5 years now. No particular rush to buy here, but certainly a solid mid-cap to monitor for now...from WealthOracleAM
djderry: While today's acquisition of Almo Corporation for over $600 million may seem pricey,it does seem to tick all the boxes: revenue of $1.3 billion,EBITA of $75 million,gross assets of $409 million and,perhaps most impressive,operating margin of 5.7% which,even for a specialist distributor,is pretty impressive.Management at the family-owned company are staying in place,which I like to see.There should be synergies with the North American/Canadian arm of DCC Tech and will contribute 10% to EPS and achieve 15%ROIC within three years,a key metric.What's not to like?
djderry: Compound annual growth rate is over 14%.And that is over 27 years. Free cash flow is 104%. Dividend growth is 13.9%. And,by the way,total shareholder returns is 6640% over the 27 years. My point is that however detached a company becomes from the share price,over time patient investors will be rewarded.
djderry: Interesting investor presentation in the form of a soft interview, analysts' questions a little more revealing.Good traction/growth in the business.No one asked the glaring question,would DCC Healthcare be worth a lot more on a stand-alone basis.But it wasn't that kind of interview.
djderry: Third quarte results out.Pretty impressive with all divisions posting strong growth.It's amazing,really,in the middle of a pandemic.Another of my stocks whose share price bears little relationship to the fundamentals.I presume the crowd are off chasing GameStop or Tesla.
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.
jatin724: DCC plc downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Goldman Sachs Goldman Sachs analyst Matija Gergolet downgraded DCC plc to Sell from Neutral with a price target of 5,000 GBp, down from 6,800 GBp. The analyst has taken a "more conservative view of the longer-term growth potential of DCC's existing oil products distribution businesses, owing to the increased focus in Europe and globally on the Green Deal and the shift away from petroleum products." The analyst added that M&A execution is likely to become more challenging due to the low interest rate environment. Read more at:
