wow - I almost choked on my breakfast when I saw that headline - Allianz duo snap up ‘highly defensive’ PZ Cussons - PZC taken over? - then I realised - it's just bad journalism - they only mean a few shares - my heart rate is back to normal now.

Allianz duo snap up ‘highly defensive’ PZ Cussons

Allianz Global Investors’ Simon Gergel and Richard Knight have bought PZ Cussons (PZC) because the turnaround of the personal healthcare manufacturer makes for a ‘compelling217; investment story.

The pair added the stock to their £330m Allianz UK Listed Equity Income fund in March as a new management team at the maker of Carex and Imperial Leather are ‘in the midst of a promising turnaround strategy, which is already bearing fruit and has the potential to deliver significant further value by raising both revenue growth rates and profit margins’.

The managers, both Citywire AA-rated, said the business had been ‘substantially rationalised, and much greater focus has been placed on key markets and segments’ after years of ‘lacklustre217; growth.

Organic growth has already improved and the Nigerian operations – which were an area of ‘significant concern’ – have already ‘dramatically improved profitability’.

‘The business is highly defensive due to the nature of the products, geographic diversification across developed and emerging markets, the strength of the brands and market shares, and the strong balance sheet,’ said Gergel and Knight.

‘The valuation is modest in absolute terms, further success is not discounted in the shares, and is particularly compelling relative to similar businesses with this defensive profile.’

Shares in PZ Cussons edged 0.2% higher to 197p on Thursday. They have rallied 16% from a three-year low of 170p on 20 March.

Should positive trading continue in key markets such as Europe & Americas and Australia, then we could see upside risks to forecasts,' said Damian McNeela and Deidre Mullaney, analysts at broker Numis.*b9thyn*_ga*MTEwNDgwNTYwMS4xNTU2MzEzMzM1*_ga_XE0XLFFF16*MTY4MTQxNjQyMC4zLjEuMTY4MTQxNjQ2Ni4wLjAuMA..&_ga=2.229831189.829549510.1681333445-1104805601.1556313335

FWIW, on his website on 2 March 2023, Robbie Burns/NT was looking for trading shares and said that ''There are a surprising amount of trading ranges around that we uncovered. That is shares that regularly go from one point to another and back again.''

''One such …. is PZ Cussons PZC. It makes lots of shopping staples and well knows brand names like "Carex". Because it's a reasonably steady sensible business the market rates it too cheap at around 180p and too dear once it hits 220p. Seemed a decent idea to get in then in the 180s looking for a rise back up. Looks an idea to nothing as if it falls much under 180p then something might not be right and get out for a small loss. It it then gets up to the 210-220p level time to take profits then go short. Rinse and repeat? ''

It won't make the slightest difference to the PZC share price.

EI,yes agree on H1,overall been a serial disappointment over 10yrs.Equity returned to shareholders has been poor. I'd want to see more evidence or a lower share price to reflect that.

Volume 5x usual. Small PI's like those on this board do not move share prices - unless AIM. Hedge fund has dumped a lot of shares here today. Maintain 10% drop was not warranted.

PZ Cussons plc posted Interims this morning reporting revenue up 18.8% to £336.9m. Like for like revenue growth was 6.1%, the Childs Farm acquisition, favorable FX and the impact of additional reporting days in the period accounted for the remainder of the growth. Adjusted profit before tax was up 7.8% to £34.5m, adjusted EPS was down 8.5% to 5.16p due to a higher tax charge, but the business is on track for margin improvement in H2. The business is expanding, the balance sheet remains strong, valuation is decent with forward PE ratio at 15.9x top quartile for the sector. The share price lacks some positive momentum and defensives are underperforming in 2023 so far due to macro considerations. PZC is a solid, decent quality consumer name at a reasonable price, but it is a share to monitor for now...

I suggest that the connection between hand wash sales and PZC share price is apophenic
