+ Watch CAH
on My Watchlist
The Company is a provider of products and services that improve the safety and productivity of healthcare.
Industry trends counter to distributor model. Lost WAG and Express Scripts contracts.
Great P/E and P/S, 2% dividend yield. Strong company with a strong future ahead.
Betting on an Ohio company that's also a leader in the medical industry. Cardinal should be well-positioned regardless of what happens to Washington's push for socialized medicine.
Dividend will keep this solid.
4/12 screen #2: percentile and CSspeculating with new screen, high analyst opinion
A winner from the health care reform
This is not a screaming deal but with the dividend factored in it looks like they should be priced between $42 and $50. EPS growth is around 3.5% for the past 8 years (with moderate variance), revenue growth is more consistent and around 9.5%.Their net margin is low, debt is average, return on assets is high. They compete directly with AmerisourceBergen and McKesson; all three seem to be quality companies with similar performance potential.
Recession proof niche.
Long term buy
New filibuster-proof Congress should reduce the risk of any sweeping health care changes in the near future. Their focus on growing generics would help them remain competitive regardless. Solid ROE, good work being done to increase focus on core competancies, and pharmaceuticals should continue to have recession- and inflation-resistant demand.
i have bought in at 27.90 and profited from this one.good company a benjamin graham pick. its currently at 12p/e and still a bargain.
This met a high level screen to indicate a buy and strong outperform against its peers (other tickers in its industry). My 1st version of this spreadsheet devles deep into the company's balnace sheet and recent income statements, combined with other relevant price data for the company including insider/institutional holdings, short interest, debt levels, etc. Testing capabilities of this 1st version of my automated, valuation spreadhseet matched with my personal criteria and see how it holds up.
They have made significant investments in themselves over the prior 10 years. They meant business and will weather the storm.
Current spinoff not such a bad thing. My mother has been with them 32+yrs, just had a little talk and she has decided to take a larger position in company. I believe they have been undervalued for some time and no matter what current administration does they will benefit due to "tentacles" they have had for some time. They are trading at about 50% discount to historical values, p/e and compared to others. Fundamentaly sound company that gets no respect!
I like the fundementals and the price seems beat down to unecessary lows.
Delightfully boring stock. They have a hand in many parts of the pie for medical supplies and allied with another of my favorite picks, Allscripts (MDRX). The spin off of a few parts (CFN) is a worry, as any change can be, but this should see a regaining of the loss it suffered Sept 1st, 2009 and should increase to 40+ over some more time.
