Well after over 5 years of holding I sold out last week and bought Tesco at just under 308p. I was speaking to a pharmacist whose opinion I respect and he mentioned how pharmacies are being affected in the current climate ( ie HSE ). He also walked me through the supply chains etc etc. He basically said that UDG is still a fairly safe hold ( he holds UDG shares himself ) but also explained various scenarios which could get UDG into trouble. Another worry is that UDG needs to make acquisitions to grow. Organic growth is only slight and most growth comes from acquisitions. It could be difficult to raise money in this climate etc etc etc. My UDG served me well having more than doubled over the five plus years ( I took the scrip ) and I am hoping that my new Tesco shares will also double over the next 5 and a bit years. Good luck to UDG holders. :O)

Davy's latest forecast for 2009 has been increased to 28.9c which equals 12% EPS growth. They say the share is trading on a multiple of 12 which discounts its defensive qualities.

T/S due on 12th August. NBC has increased its 2009 EPS forecast for UDG after the Sharp acquisition. The new figure is 29.07c. Their price target remains at Euro 4.40 representing a 26% upside.

cheers Liars. Markets are not interested at the moment, but confident we'll get the rerating in good time. Nearly at Sept jeeze time flies quicker as you get older......;-)

Interestly enough my high end expectations were for 26.3c EPS so add another cent onto that for 27.3c. That gives a multiple of 12.82 which is fairly cheap for UDG given that it was trading on a P/E north of 16, which was a little lower then the long term EPS growth average, during the last few years. EPS growth over the last 5 years has averaged at 15% ( and still this board has tumbleweed all over it ) so therefore a multiple of 15 seems appropriate as during a recession people still need drugs and its associated services. Of course the HSE decision could bring EPS up or down either way but I think that there's a long way to go until we get a concrete decision. Anyhow there seems to be a difference of 2.18 on the multiple so a rerating should see the price rise by 60c which is 17%. Given that end of year is September, which we are nearly at, it is also nearly time to start looking at 2009 which should boost EPS by an extra 14 - 15% or so. Giving an appropriate share price of around 470c but more likely around 420 - 450c if the market remains cautious.

From Goodbody this AM: * Acquisition financed from internal resources and existing debt facilities * Sharp = largest independent contact packaging company in US * European packing margins would imply EBITA of US$11m which = adding Euro 2.8m to FY08 earnings. * This would add 1c to EPS which is forecasted at 25.54c ( I am hoping for 26c or better but will take anything better than say 25c ) * At 9X EBIT deal is within range of previous deals ( TD Packaging = 8X as was MPF, Budelpack was done at 10X ) * interest cover should drop to 5.7X from 9.3X and gearing should increase from 23.8% to 38.6% * Sharp = is biggest acquisition in UDG history and is immediately earnings enhancing ( as described above )

Looks like UDG made a Sharp acquisition: http://www.advfn.com/p.php?pid=nmona&cb=1216189798&article=27344063&symbol=L%5EUDG Actuallly I am not sure if it is a sharp acquisition as I think that the US$ will keep falling.

Also regard John Lee highly, and was aware he has held udg. for a number of years. He usually sings its praises a few times a year describing it as well run with increasing divi. returns. I missed his latest comments as i was away.

Looks like the seasonal downturn is starting. Reckon I'll pick up a few more if it drops low enough and depending on the HSE decision of course. I was reading last weekends FT and had to do a double take when I saw that John Lee also owns UDG. He is my favourite columnist in the FT.

I have just calculated that UDG has given me an 18.23% CAGR per annum over the last 5 years. Quite a satisfactory achievement for this stock I think :O)

Yep, SFR is now my second or third largest holding too. :O) Bought my first batch at about 243p from memory and added twice around the 260p mark. Nice Margin of Safety there.

No need to thank me for anything culchi, I just do what I like doing. :O) I seem to be building a nice little stake in SFR atm. Ex-divi next Wednesday with a near 4.25% final dividend ( 6.37% full year divi ).

sorry liars i spent month of april touring cities of southern spain with my missus, got back to a work overload .Had a glance at results in a relaxed way and saw the usual reliable performance. As i said on ang. thread , this is now my second highest stock holding in value terms. Have held since 2001 and use scribs to add to my holding. As you say a most underrated management ,now adding value by acquiring higher margin add on businesses. i now feel i will be trading less in forthcoming years, as i think i have a balanced high quality portfolio. Like most people i have learned from my mistakes, also learned a lot from posters like yourself ,jt cod etc. Bought een and dgo (thanks mainly to jt postings) with proceeds of bur. takeover, while quality companies like sfr. and sgi were highlighted in various posts and i was lucky to buy them on dips. The only stock i got doubtful about was taih. but jts reasoned posts have kept me faithful although still at a loss. Biggest loss has been with sterling slump but hopefully this will correct itself .Thanks for all your work on this and other threads, always appreciated even if we dont post often.
