Outfit that Treats Poorly Animals Is Set for A Glowing Future, Even in Hard Times

Hello Share Shifters. Given the wobbliness of the markets, it probably pays to seek out defensive shares i.e. those that can withstand the rigours of a recession. One such candidate for your attention is Dechra (DPH). This is a pharmaceuticals company that serves animals. And we all know that, in Blighty, one of the last thing people will curtail their spending on is the health of their pets.


Dechra Pharmaceuticals – all I want is not a dog, cat or equine offering but a cheaper share price

I have shared my views before on the ‘development and marketing of veterinary products’ company Dechra Pharmaceuticals (DPH), including noting in early September that ‘maybe it is just me finding it easier to appraise future human (than animal) demand scope, but I am going to keep on avoiding this one despite the recent share price falls’. And whilst the shares have romped hugely since their IPO early this century, the stock is down almost 30% during the last six months. So is today’s c. 38 quid share price - after the publication of first half numbers - now cheap or still expensive?


Dechra Pharmaceuticals reports rising pet spending...but its shares fall

I have written a few times, most recently HERE, about the ‘development and marketing of veterinary products’ company Dechra Pharmaceuticals (DPH). Whilst I remember being very impressed by it many years ago when it listed, I concluded back in late February that it may have said ‘thanks to the love of dogs (and Brexit fears)’ but it did not work for me. Since then the stock has pushed up even further although - as noted last week - insufficiently to join the FTSE-100. And the shares are down by more than 7% as I write, so what is going on?


Dechra Pharmaceuticals sorts out fat cats but is not on my buy list

A couple of years ago I wrote on shares in Dechra Pharmaceuticals (DPH) not particularly complementarily, observing 'I would not want to be paying a 30 times P/E ratio for that...even if its range of equine, cat and other animal pharmaceutical products continues to grow'. It has taken a while, but over recent weeks the stock has broken back above this letter. So on a quiet regulatory news day...what to make of this name following the publication of its full year results today?...


Pet Boom Bodes Well for Chirpy Company which Keeps on Growing Profits

Hello Share Dwellers. At the risk of repeating myself, I’ve long thought our love of pets is a money tree for those in the tame animal industry. One of my favourite pennies Avacta (AVCT) is a case in point, though its share price doggedly fails to take off and it’s also involved in human medicine. So let me suggest another company which does treatments for ailing animals...


Dechra Pharma - 'sustaining growth' with a 15% share price fall!

I think Dechra Pharmaceuticals (DPH) was the first initial public offering I looked at as a junior analyst on a hedge fund many years ago. It was a bit on the small side for us if I recall, but the essential business of specialist veterinary pharmaceutical products seemed quite sensible to me. After all we love animals almost more than anything else, right?
