tin5866: I'm equally surprised by the lack of comments.Probably because share price is so large. So not as 'exciting' as penny shares that are apparently about to hit the big time.But I don't mind it being under the radar.First bought at a little under £57 and subsequently topped up. It is doing nicely...

walbrock82: Those who have followed Reckitt Benckiser is wondering why the shares have fallen so much, despite the combined business being much larger. One of the main reason is the increase in debt. The one distinction is before the acquisition net interest cover was over 100 times (2016: net interest cost was £16m), compared to today’s 10 times cover (2017: net interest cost came to £223m). And big financial institutions are doubting if the £400m in post-tax profit from Mead Johnson would compensate for the lost post-tax profit from their Food Division which equated to £100m and the £200m incremental increase in net interest costs. As I assess the whole business and the technical analysis, I feel RB will experience further short-term share price decline in the next six months and should target £52 per share. For more reasons, why investors are abandoning RB in the short-term and why the share price will target £52 or lower, click here for more http://bit.ly/2oHkK2X

philanderer: Berenberg says Reckitt Benckiser will bounce back Recovery frustrations have led to a fall in Reckitt Benckiser (RB) shares but Berenberg said the headwinds can be worked through and growth can accelerate at the consumer goods group again. Analyst Rosie Edwards reiterated her ‘buy’ recommendation and target price of £85.00 on the shares, which are down 10% over the last 12 months, taking the price-earnings ratio to what she said was a ‘trough level’. The shares were up 1.6% yesterday at £69.43. ‘Reckitt Benckiser’s recent share price performance is reflective of growing frustration among investors about the company’s top-line recovery, something to which we can relate, having expected to see an improvement in the third quarter of 2017, which will not materialise,’ she said. Edwards said there was ‘little substance’ in conspiracy theories surrounding changes to the executive board and that the company’s ‘competitive advantage in innovation and health still exists, although suffering some knocks in 2016’. ‘Once the headwinds have worked through the system, we expect an acceleration in top-line growth, back to 4% by 2018,’ she said.

agai: Report about 5 months ago suggested overbought price position at £36! With consumer spending on the retreat, why any broker would and subsequent rampers would believe this price is sustainable, begs belief!! Retreat towards £30/£33 at the very least. ""Corporate results have been mixed, with those exposed to consumer spending suffering at large, as disposable income dries up. Reckitt Benckiser (LON:RB.), the household goods maker behind brands such as Dettol, Cillit Bang, Durex, and Nurofen, warned last week there was a tough outlook for consumer spending in mature markets as it posted only a slight rise in profit. Rival Unilever recently warned that consumer companies are operating in a deteriorating global economy as it reported a small drop in net profit, while US based market leader Procter & Gamble has issued two profit warnings this year, blaming waning demand in mature markets. Unilever, however, is further down the line in the battle to secure customers in new geographical markets and with further pain expected in Western markets, Reckitt's margins are likely to be squeezed further. The oscillators, however, are overbought, suggesting the recent momentum may be fading. At the time of writing the share price is 3599p and I believe a short trade with a stop-loss above the multi-year highs at 3707p offers an attractive risk / reward bias. Near term targets are seen at 3455p, 3329p and 3168p""

apad: "Reckitt Benckiser's largest shareholder JAB Holdings to sell £1.3bn stake to fund Avon bid. The holding company, controlled by German billionaires the Reimanns, holds a 15.5pc stake in Reckitt. The sale was announced after the market closed, with 36m shares, about 4.9pc of the company, being offered at a price of £32.50 to £34." Lot of shares mopped up since then. From geswan:"Elephants don't gallop but if ever there was a galloping elephant its RB. Not just 2 or 3 years out but for ten years as well imho. Their brands are all household names, they have grown div, sales and EPS every year since 2000 (including 2008/9) and have a high margin. Share price since 2000 has over 400% growth (33% pa) with low volatility. Whats not to like with +3% yield?" apad

apad: More from FT Revealing Reckitt Benckiser's strategy, Rakesh Kapoor promised to "leave no question answered." His slick presentation certainly impressed investors, and revealed a streak of derring-do – few other companies would dare run their US division out of Amsterdam, for example. And it drove the share price up 3 per cent in the process. As a case for a re-rating of the stock, now trading close to decade-lows, Mr Kapoor's presentation was impeccable. But he failed to deliver on that initial promise. The 16 "power countries" the company is focusing on remain shrouded in mystery due to "commercial sensitivities". It also remains less than clear how straightforward it will be to run an American operation from across a rather large ocean. This is even more so at a time when peer companies, including Unilever and drinks maker Diageo, are splitting regions into smaller organisational units rather than enlarging them. None of this seemed overly to concern the investment community. "Reckitt has passed the baton to the new generation of managers after what has been a great historical performance and shown the market there is still huge potential," said Harold Thompson, analyst at Deutsche Bank, house broker. That potential comes – as it does for virtually every consumer goods multinational – from emerging markets. These account for some 38 per cent of revenues, and Reckitt is targeting 45 per cent by 2016. Technically, it is targeting 50 per cent, but Asia includes the developed markets of Japan, Australia and New Zealand. However, Reckitt was a late passenger on the bandwagon, resulting in weaknesses – such as China – which Mr Kapoor acknowledges. It is also ramping up in these markets at a time when growth is decelerating, albeit to levels still buoyant compared with developed markets. Mr Kapoor denies any suggestion of catch-up. "We have one of the best track records of growth in emerging markets," he said. While China is "not as good as we would like," he notes that the acquisition of SSL, maker of Scholl sandals and Durex condoms, doubled turnover in the country. The focus on emerging markets means more resource allocation. Now, half of the company's £200m annual capital expenditure goes into the region. That will rise to 80 per cent in 2016. Marketing spend will also increase, from 44 per cent of the total budget to 55 per cent, as will that for senior management. But what investors liked about the strategy is the underpinnings remain the same: top-line growth ahead of the market, steadily expanding operating margins (apart from this year when they will stay flat) and strong cash conversion. Nor is the company holding off spending during its "year of transition". Marketing spend will rise by £100m, which analysts estimate to be a rise of 10 per cent. This will be mostly self-financed by cost-cutting programmes elsewhere. "They've changed the packaging rather than the recipe," said Guillaume Delmas, analyst at Nomura. "Clearly nothing is broken. They are just going to continue the momentum." In the past, under Bart Becht, who handed over the reins to Mr Kapoor last year, that translated into hefty outperformance. Returns from Reckitt left rivals in the shade, not least because superior products won over consumers. The departure of Mr Becht, along with wobbles in performance, reversed that. Measured over the past two years, shareholder returns have lagged those of peers. So has Mr Kapoor done enough to win a re-rating? For some, Like Martin Deboo at Investec, there is a valuation conundrum "because growth has lost some of its lustre but cash generation remains strong". Another analyst cautions that Reckitt is still "a bit of a show-me story." Having unveiled big changes, they need to deliver on execution before meriting a higher multiple, he says. But others reckon its fortunes are already on the turn. "Overall group growth and earnings prospects are as good as ever, and given the valuation is close to 10-year lows, there is room for a re-rating," says Mr Thompson.
