Rentokil Initial – good news that I still haven’t required its pest-control services (and I am still not buying the shares either)

About six months ago I observed that Rentokil Initial (RTO), founded in 1925 as a pest-control business, was “almost perfectly in the middle of the 450-600p range over the last year”. And that it “need to be a bit cheaper to have another look…if you own the stock, then you have probably held it for ages and are very happy to do so, but there is no need to chase this one if you do not”. A bit like the FTSE 100, there has been just a bit of volatility since then but now we are kicking around a similar share price. Is there any need to change my thoughts from back in April, or not?


Rentokil solves a bunch of pest problems, but should you buy its shares?

Until I looked yesterday I never would have guessed that Rentokil Initial (RTO) - founded in 1925 as a pest-control business - now has a market cap of just shy of £10 billion, so if you have held the stock for the last decade or so then you would have done rather well. But what has gone has gone, so what should investors be thinking now about the “world’s leading commercial pest control services provider (and) the world’s leading commercial provider of plants and scenting” which now operates in nearly 90 different countries around the world?
