I like blabbing on to myself. :O) I just find it strange how everyone seems to be chasing the latest trendy share when this is growing at about 15% per year. At this rate the share price doubles every 5 years, more if you take the scrip divi. Have you missed the boat as regards getting them cheap - I can't answer that djderry, only you can. ;o) As I see it from an EPS perspective: Historically EPS growth has been about 15% per annum therefore a multiple of 15 would be suitable. It looks like UDG will do 25 cents this year therefore an approximate price would be 375 cents ( about where we are now ). From an intrinsic value point of view: You can take the 375 cent figure to start with and add a little for credible management, a market leading position in Ireland, the move into diversification of higher margin sectors, brand names etc etc. You might get 400c as fair value, you might get 440c for fair value. It depends on the individual. You can also deduct a little due to regulation etc. Anyhow that's enough rambling for me but a final thought might be to wait and hope a summer dip will occur ( like in the last few years ) and add then on a 10% discount from the 375c figure to get a little margin of safety so add at say sub 340c if you get the chance.

Looks like a new high - strange how a thread like this gets no posts from anyone even though the share keeps making new highs and growing at around 15% per year. Perhaps everyone has bought and have tucked them away. ;o)

Sorry, my mistake. The outlook is in there and looks good. :O) Say EPS increases by 13% over the next 5 years: Assuming 2008 EPS ends up at 25c that gives EPS of 46c at end 2013. This would equate a share price of around 7 Euro on a multiple of 15. On EPS growth of 15% p/a we can expect a share price of around 7.50 at end 2013. This would be higher if we use a higher multiple of course. imo this is possible as we should be in an upward market cycle in 5 years ( touch wood ). Historically we have seen a dip in the share price over the late summer. Perhaps it might be a good idea to buy in or add a few on the dip should one occur this year. Should be a nice bagger from 3.50 Euro......add in the scrips and it should more than double bag. Slowly does it here. :O)

Results look decent on a quick skim. I don't have time to read the results carefully till this evening. No firm forward statement though which could possibly spell trouble.

Article regarding UDG in the Sunday Business Post today. Says UDG looks good for a takeover possibly from Alliance Boots although it may not come for another 2 - 5 years due to the level of debt AB took on when it went private. I also think that some of the larger European players may be interested. Anyhow I hope that UDG don't get taken over for a long while yet. I am quite pleased with double digit growth in earnings and the divi year after year so I hope that they continue for a long time yet.

Don't worry about Forex rates when holding for the long term imo as long as the underlying business continues to perform that's all that matters. Like the company says - forex rates don't affect cashflows they only affect reporting profits: http://www.independent.ie/business/irish/united-drug-sees-doubledigit-growth-1337249.html

We'll get over 350p eventually JohnnyAD. I'll be holding a while yet so as long as the business continues to performs I don't mind what the share price does too much in the short term. Another 2 acquisitions announces today: http://www.advfn.com/p.php?pid=nmona&cb=1207293118&article=25615186&symbol=L%5EUDG

Excellent TS and positive outlook. As you say liars, lovely share to hold, but would be even lovelier if and when we get through 350p. Markets are depressed at present, but quality should show through eventually.

Double digit growth once again despite currency fluctuations. :O) Acquisitions performing ahead of expectations ( Pyramed was paid full earn outs early ) and all divisions performing strongly generating lots of cashflow. What a lovely, lovely share to be in especially with Irelands aging population.

I missed those other statements - new non-exec director & all resolutions passed at the AGM. There seems to be a double top at 300p and a double bottom at 280p - interesting imo.
