Revnue and Net Income

Growth is probably one of the most important factors in the valuation of a company. GuruFocus’ research has found that growth is closely correlated with the long-term performance of a company’s stock. If a company’s business is growing, the company usually creates value for its shareholders, especially if the growth is profitable. Likewise, if a company’s revenue and earnings are declining, the value of the company will decrease. BioCryst Pharmaceuticals’s 3-year average revenue growth rate is worse than 73% of the companies in Biotechnology industry. BioCryst Pharmaceuticals’s 3-year average EBITDA growth rate is -14.4%, which ranks worse than 76% of the companies in Biotechnology industry.

Another way to look at the profitability of a company is to compare its return on invested capital and the weighted cost of capital. Return on invested capital (ROIC) measures how well a company generates cash flow relative to the capital it has invested in its business. The weighted average cost of capital (WACC) is the rate that a company is expected to pay on average to all its security holders to finance its assets. We want to have the return on invested capital higher than the weighted cost of capital. For the past 12 months, BioCryst Pharmaceuticals’s return on invested capital is -295.87, and its cost of capital is 17.87. The historical ROIC vs WACC comparison of BioCryst Pharmaceuticals is shown below:

Authorities Raid Pharmaceuticals In Bolangir 

Published

With vulnerability of people at an all time high amid the second wave of the Covid pandemic crisis, the wrong doers have found perfect opportunities to make profits especially in health sector which is evident from the back to back incidents of seizure of spurious pharma drugs from several parts of the State. 

After Cuttack and Rourkela, the Drugs Inspector of Bolangir on Sunday raided some pharma outlets in the city on the basis of orders from the Drugs Controller.

With vulnerability of people at an all time high amid the second wave of the Covid pandemic crisis, the wrong doers have found perfect opportunities to make profits especially in health sector which is evident from the back to back incidents of seizure of spurious pharma drugs from several parts of the State. 

A team of the drugs control squad suddenly visited Modi Pharmaceuticals situated in Sudpara and seized large stock of medicines used for the treatment of cold and cough from the unit.

The samples of the medicines will be sent to laboratory for testing and the details on the drugs can be ascertained only after that, said the Drugs Inspector Babulal Tudu.

The official informed that the authorities of the pharma unit failed to produce satisfactory documentation regarding the production or procurement of the seized medicines. 

A few days ago, a State Drugs Control squad seized huge quantities of fake anti-covid drugs ‘Favipiravir’ in Cuttack.
On Saturday, the State Health Department ordered the Drugs Controller and Police to carry out a joint investigation into the transaction of spurious medicines and submit a report in this regard.

As per sources, as many as 170 boxes of the counterfeit drugs consignment were seized from a chemist shop at Kanika Chhak in the millennium city.

Similarly, in Rourkela, three drugs stores were raided by a team leading to exposure of more than 300 strips of duplicate medicines.

Glenmark Pharmaceuticals Limited (NSE:GLENMARK) Is Going Strong But Fundamentals Appear To Be Mixed : Is There A Clear Direction For The Stock?

Published

on

By

Glenmark Pharmaceuticals’ (NSE:GLENMARK) stock is up by a considerable 36% over the past three months. However, we decided to pay attention to the company’s fundamentals which don’t appear to give a clear sign about the company’s financial health. In this article, we decided to focus on Glenmark Pharmaceuticals’ ROE.

Return on Equity or ROE is a test of how effectively a company is growing its value and managing investors’ money. Put another way, it reveals the company’s success at turning shareholder investments into profits.

See our latest analysis for Glenmark Pharmaceuticals

How Is ROE Calculated?

Return on equity can be calculated by using the formula:

Return on Equity = Net Profit (from continuing operations) ÷ Shareholders’ Equity

So, based on the above formula, the ROE for Glenmark Pharmaceuticals is:

14% = ₹9.7b ÷ ₹71b (Based on the trailing twelve months to March 2021).

The ‘return’ is the amount earned after tax over the last twelve months. Another way to think of that is that for every ₹1 worth of equity, the company was able to earn ₹0.14 in profit.

Why Is ROE Important For Earnings Growth?

We have already established that ROE serves as an efficient profit-generating gauge for a company’s future earnings. We now need to evaluate how much profit the company reinvests or “retains” for future growth which then gives us an idea about the growth potential of the company. Assuming everything else remains unchanged, the higher the ROE and profit retention, the higher the growth rate of a company compared to companies that don’t necessarily bear these characteristics.

Glenmark Pharmaceuticals’ Earnings Growth And 14% ROE

On the face of it, Glenmark Pharmaceuticals’ ROE is not much to talk about. However, given that the company’s ROE is similar to the average industry ROE of 15%, we may spare it some thought. However, Glenmark Pharmaceuticals has seen a flattish net income growth over the past five years, which is not saying much. Bear in mind, the company’s ROE is not very high. So that could also be one of the reasons behind the company’s flat growth in earnings.

As a next step, we compared Glenmark Pharmaceuticals’ net income growth with the industry and were disappointed to see that the company’s growth is lower than the industry average growth of 16% in the same period.

NSEI:GLENMARK Past Earnings Growth June 13th 2021

Earnings growth is a huge factor in stock valuation. It’s important for an investor to know whether the market has priced in the company’s expected earnings growth (or decline). Doing so will help them establish if the stock’s future looks promising or ominous. One good indicator of expected earnings growth is the P/E ratio which determines the price the market is willing to pay for a stock based on its earnings prospects. So, you may want to check if Glenmark Pharmaceuticals is trading on a high P/E or a low P/E, relative to its industry.

Is Glenmark Pharmaceuticals Making Efficient Use Of Its Profits?

Glenmark Pharmaceuticals has a low three-year median payout ratio of 7.3% (or a retention ratio of 93%) but the negligible earnings growth number doesn’t reflect this as high growth usually follows high profit retention.

Additionally, Glenmark Pharmaceuticals has paid dividends over a period of at least ten years, which means that the company’s management is determined to pay dividends even if it means little to no earnings growth. Our latest analyst data shows that the future payout ratio of the company over the next three years is expected to be approximately 6.3%. Therefore, the company’s future ROE is also not expected to change by much with analysts predicting an ROE of 14%.

Conclusion

On the whole, we feel that the performance shown by Glenmark Pharmaceuticals can be open to many interpretations. Even though it appears to be retaining most of its profits, given the low ROE, investors may not be benefitting from all that reinvestment after all. The low earnings growth suggests our theory correct. That being so, the latest analyst forecasts show that the company will continue to see an expansion in its earnings.

7 Precious Metals Stocks That Will Keep Your Portfolio On Trend

The growing acceptance of cryptocurrency is beginning to make mainstream investors rethink their idea of “store of value.” The trendy possibilities of Bitcoin, Ethereum, and any of the dozens of altcoins that exist on the blockchain are trending like the latest fashion.

However, the thing about fashion is that the more things change the more things stay the same. Just like the simple black dress that won’t go out of fashion, the same can be said for precious metals stocks. One way to think about it would be to say that the existence of a growing cryptocurrency market doesn’t change the value of precious metals.

Precious metals have long been known to be a safe-haven asset in times of market volatility and economic crisis. In fact, during the Covid-19 pandemic, gold prices surged about 30% breaking the $2,000 mark for the first time in its history. This was at a time when the prices of many cryptocurrencies were falling.

And precious metals have also been seen as a hedge against inflation, which seems like more of a certainty with the Federal Reserve’s pledge to keep interest rates at historically low rates into 2023.

Whether you’re looking to take your first steps at crafting a precious metals portfolio or if you want to fine-tune the one you have, we believe this special presentation is a good place to start your research. We’ve identified seven precious metals stocks that look to retain their allure in 2021.
