sarkasm: Https:// Summary The company has poor fundamentals for a short-term investment strategy. Strengths Upward revisions of sales forecast reflect a renewed optimism among the analysts covering the stock. Over the past year, analysts have regularly revised upwards their sales forecast for the company. Analysts covering this company mostly recommend stock overweighting or purchase. Within the weekly time frame the stock shows a bullish technical configuration above the support level at 2478 GBp Weaknesses Stock prices approach a strong long-term resistance in weekly data at GBp 3036. Prospects from analysts covering the stock are not consistent. Such dispersed sales estimates confirm the poor visibility into the group's activity. Based on current prices, the company has particularly high valuation levels. The company's valuation in terms of earnings multiples is rather high. Indeed, the firm is getting paid 90.41 times its estimated earnings per share for the ongoing year. The firm pays small or no dividend to shareholders. For that reason, it is not a yield company. For the past seven days, analysts have been lowering their EPS expectations for the company. For the last few months, analysts have been revising downwards their earnings forecast.
sarkasm: MIDAS SHARE TIPS UPDATE: Drugs for pets firm Dechra Pharmaceuticals booms By Joanne Hart for The Mail on Sunday Published: 11:30 BST, 15 September 2019 | Updated: 11:30 BST, 15 September 2019 e-mail View comments Dogs have always played an important role in Korean life. Once, they were a feature on restaurant menus. Today, they are more often seen at the end of a lead. The shift is part of a broader trend across emerging markets, as pet ownership becomes something of a status symbol among aspiring consumers. The more people own cats and dogs, the more they spend on looking after them, to the benefit of Dechra Pharmaceuticals, which makes and sells drugs for pets and other animals. The more people own cats and dogs, the more they spend on looking after them, to the benefit of Dechra Pharmaceuticals, which makes and sells drugs for pets and other animals +1 Drugs business: The more people own cats and dogs, the more they spend on looking after them Midas originally recommended the stock in 2008, when it was £3.97. We recommended it again in 2015, by which time the price had surged to £9.85. Last Friday, the shares closed at £28.90, having almost tripled in the past four years alone. Looking ahead, long-standing chief executive Ian Page is optimistic and recent figures suggest he has good reason to be.

The company’s performance is all the more impressive, as many peers have struggled recently, and Dechra itself has had to cope with increasingly stringent regulation and potential issues around a No Deal Brexit. Free investing guides The group’s resilience derives largely from a simple but effective strategy: listening to what vets need and creating products that satisfy those needs, particularly in specialist areas. Dechra’s best-selling drug, for example, is Vetoryl, used to treat dogs with Cushing’s disease, a hormonal disorder. Initially, Dechra operated only in the UK. Today, it sells to vets around the world. Just over 70 per cent of sales relate to pets, but the group generates strong growth from farm animal and horse products too. Dechra manufactures half the drugs that it sells and buys the rest from third-party producers. Over time, Page would like to make more drugs in-house and the company has a strong pipeline, including a diabetes treatment for cats and dogs that can be injected weekly instead of daily – a clear bonus for pets and their owners. Growth is also likely to come from more geographic expansion and well-chosen acquisitions, as Page has bought several businesses over the years and successfully integrated them into the business. Brokers forecast a continued increase in sales, profits and dividends next year and beyond. MIDAS VERDICT Dechra has come a long way since chief executive Ian Page took the helm in 2001, enjoying 17 years of consistent, double-digit earnings growth. Investors who bought in 2008 – and later in 2015 – have done well and may choose to bank some profits. But most analysts believe the stock could hit £33 in the next year or two so shareholders should retain most of their stock.
steeplejack: Analysts at JPMorgan Cazenove initiated coverage on Dechra Pharmaceuticals at 'overweight' on Monday, calling the veterinary products manufacturer a "diamond in the ruff".JPM, which sees animal health as an "attractive" healthcare subsector, said the industry was "fragmented" and felt Dechra was Dechra highly capable of creating "significant value" through mergers and acquisitions.The investment bank's analysts saw attraction in the animal health industry as a result of its strong demographic demand, increasing spend per pet, and increasing animal protein consumption.Low development costs are another appealing element for the analysts, with the FTSE 250 constituent only needing to reinvest around 5% of revenues, and the sector's "superior sustainability" when compared to human pharmaceuticals, with "far more modest genericisations".The analysts, which issued Dechra a twelve-month target price of £30, expect to see Dechra's core EPS grow 11% between 2020 and 2023E, driven by a combination of "strong growth in demand for pet medications" and 200bps worth of operating margin expansion."We see potential forecast upside from pipeline optionality and M&A. We set a Jun-20 PT of £30, 26x 2021E Core-PE, justified by the strong base business outlook, and upside optionality," concluded JPM.

wetdream: It shouldn’t happen to a vet supplier The Times4 September 2018Miles Costello Tempus dechra pharmaceuticals STEVEN G SMITH/EYEEM/GETTY IMAGES Shares in Dechra lost more than a fifth of their value yesterday after the maker of veterinary drugs said that it had embarked on preparations for a no-deal Brexit. Dechra said that it would be setting up a laboratory inside the eurozone to ensure its products met European Union guidelines if Britain quit without a mutual agreement on testing and drug approvals. It said that the cost, at about £1.2 million, would be immaterial, but shareholders took fright at the potential fallout for Dechra once Britain is no longer a member of the bloc. The shares closed 668p lower, or 21.4 per cent, at £24.52. Dechra Pharmaceuticals suffered the sharpest ever one-day fall in its share price yesterday as investors took fright at an array of risks ranging from a hard Brexit to the changing face of the veterinary market. It’s hard not to conclude that the drop, of more than 20 per cent, was overdone. There are many moving parts at Dechra, a supplier of products to veterinary practices across Europe and North America, but none appear to merit a fall such as that. Dechra Pharmaceuticals traces its history back to 1819 when it was founded as Arnolds & Son, a business that made prosthetic limbs. Having moved into the veterinary market during the Crimean war, it has expanded through acquisitions and organic growth and now specialises in treatments such as vaccines and antibiotic sprays for pets, horses and “food-producing animals”, such as chickens and pigs, and produces specialist diet foods for animals. It operates in 50 countries, mainly in Europe and North America. Dechra operates in a consolidating market. Veterinary practices are merging, mainly to create benefits of scale, at the fastest rate ever (especially in Britain). At the same time, suppliers, which it uses to get its products to vets, increasingly are concentrating on prioritising their discounted own-brand products. Distributors, particularly in North America, also are merging. Dechra has been happy to get involved in this M&A activity. In the past 12 months it’s bought Rxvet, a pet products business in New Zealand, AST Farma, which also makes treatments for dogs and cats and the like in the Netherlands, and Le Vet, which operates in non-Dutch markets in the European Union. Enlarged veterinary practices — and, indeed, bigger distributors — will have much more muscle in negotiating discounts for buying or selling on Dechra’s products in bulk. In practice, though, Dechra can live with this as it will be far cheaper to service a single big customer where before it may have been dealing with 25 or even 50 separate companies. Then there’s Brexit. Dechra told its investors yesterday that it was implementing a plan based on a nodeal departure from the EU next March, under which the bloc would refuse to recognise products tested and authorised in Britain. Dechra is setting up an EU-based company so that there will be no technical barrier to trade. In addition, it is setting up a laboratory in the bloc, equipped with staff who can test products to ensure that they conform with EU guidelines if it turns out that they are required separately. This is a headache, but will cost Dechra only £200,000 up front, plus a one-off expense of £1 million and additional operating costs of £800,000 a year — peanuts for a business with annual revenues of more than £400 million and a profit margin of 24.4 per cent. In short, none of this justifies the slump in its price; Dechra ended the day yesterday down 668p, or 21.4 per cent, at £24.52. Its annual numbers were strong. Taking into account the contribution from acquisitions, there was doubledigit growth in both profits and revenues over the 12 months to the end of June. The United States, where there were no deals last year, increased its revenues by a healthy 18.2 per cent and the profitability of the consolidated businesses in Europe improved sharply. Nevertheless Dechra shares are insanely highly rated, even after yesterday, trading on an earnings multiple of a whopping 71 times and with a dividend yield just shy of 1 per cent. The group is in good shape and seems well placed to adapt to its changing market; still, it’s as hard to justify buying the shares as it is to defend yesterday’s fall.
investopia: hxxps:// Although investors were unimpressed with Dechra's annual results and sent the shares galloping down, analysts at Jefferies liked the "impressive growth" in North America during the veterinary products manufacturer's last trading year. Jefferies, which reiterated its 'buy' rating and 2,726p target price on the FTSE 250 resident on Monday, pointed to growth of 21.1% globally and a better-than-expected 18.2% sales growth in North America. Analysts looked fondly on margins expanding "despite some headwinds from increased distributor consolidation and increased investments in sales force" and felt the outlook for 2019 "is positive and signals good progress from recent M&A". Dechra's North American sales increase was driven primarily by the US but also with strong growth in Canada, where all growth was organic. American operating profit margins remained flat at 32.5%, while sales of Amoxi-Clav, Vetivex and Zycortal were particularly strong despite its Carprofen range being hit by competition with distributors. In the EU growth of 11.4% came amid benefits from acquisitions as the group exited the contract manufacturing business through the year. Dechra performed ahead of the market in the majority of geographies. Market dynamics could see further consolidation of distributors, Dechra suggested, with a faster change of veterinary distributors and increased marketing of veterinary distributors' own generic products. While increased consolidation could see increased buying power of distributors, Jefferies felt Dechra's "high value, innovative portfolio means it is less exposed to these changes and there is value in increasing volumes through consolidated distributors".
steeplejack: RBC summary taken from FT AlphavilleAgainst our expectations Dechra has reported a 2.9% miss at EPS (albeit in line with consensus) with the underlying EBIT margin not as high as we had hoped(3.7% miss at EBIT) and offset by lower interest costs. With revenues pre-reported at the trading statement there were no surprises by division at the top line(+8.3% underlying growth for the Group) but the Group gross margin was c.82bps light and then the NA Pharma business saw higher costs, which led to a9.0% miss against our divisional EBIT expectations (3.7% at the group level). Standing back, we must remember that FY18 has not been a bad year for Dechra,EBIT growth +21.9%, EPS +18.3% growth, but with this driven by acquisitions (organic EBIT was +9.7%) and, one could argue, priced in at current levels. Fromthe statement we understand that management have invested heavily in the US business, which delivered a strong top line (+18.2% growth), but this top linegrowth was slightly weaker than we had as management withdrew products in Mexico and the top-line growth may now slow as key products reach peak shareand risks grow.On the outlook, we would note from the risk section and highlights in the statement we have confirmed with management that there are a number of headwindswhich could lead to consensus downgrades of c.3-5% in FY19E EPS and 6-8% to FY20E EPS (perhaps in spite of a c3-4% currency tailwind at current rates).Whilst some of these are uncontrollable (Brexit and Iran sanctions with management acting accordingly), we see underlying/growing risks as well detailed in thestatement that are likely to add to the former. Whilst the fundamental appeal of Dechra hasn't changed materially, consensus downgrades on a name currentlytrading on c36x FY19E EPS and an EV of 21.6x EBITDA (assuming downgrades come through) and 1.9x levered at end-FY18 will be tough to swallow forsome. We had been concerned that the shares were overheating and that investors were not factoring in potential risks (customer consolidation and distributorcopycat/generic launches, in particular), so we think they could come under pressure. We look to see the scale of share price move to see if this presents anopportunity.
steeplejack: (Sharecast News) - Veterinary pharmaceutical business Dechra Pharmaceuticals issued a solid set of preliminary results on Monday, but this was enough to satisfy investors as the shares were sent tumbling. The FTSE 250 firm reported revenue growth of 13.9% to £407.1m for the year ended 30 June, with underlying operating profit growing 24.0% to £99.2m as underlying EBIT margins expanded 200 basis points to 24.4%.Underlying diluted earnings per share were ahead 20.9% to 76.45p.The Dechra board declared a full-year dividend of 25.5p.On the operational front, Dechra highlighted the acquisition of AST Farma and Le Vet in the Netherlands and the European Union, and RxVet in New Zealand.It said it outperformed in the majority of its countries and therapeutic sectors, while making "several" new global product registrations, with new opportunities secured."Dechra has delivered another successful year from both a financial and strategic perspective," said chief executive officer Ian Page.Dechra shares, having scampered up more than five-fold in the last six years, fell 15% to 2,650p, taking them back to where they were around six months ago.It was a "mixed update" said Russ Mould, investment director at broker AJ Bell, that showed "the dangers of a high valuation colliding with less than positive news" after a the strong dynamics behind the animal drug market helped underpin a multi-year advance in its shares."On the face of it, Dechra's full year results still look good with underlying profit, excluding the impact of accounting adjustments on some acquisitions, up more than 20%," he said."What may be concerning the market are references to contingency plans for a 'hard Brexit' and the fact an increasing number of distributors are focusing on the sale and marketing of their own products. These factors could prevent the company churning out the same stellar numbers as it has done historically."
r ball: I must say the ADVFN bulletin boards are pretty useless. Few comments on good companies but loads in aim miners and oil explorers. Btw: a share price of less than £1 is low for a reason.
