+ Watch SIAL
on My Watchlist
The Company develops, manufactures, purchases and distributes the high quality biochemicals and organic chemicals.
Strong understanding of customer price driven needs and SIAL ability to help them amintain the low cost strucure.
Sigma-Aldrich is a staple supplier for biomedical and chemical research, an industry which has been underfunded for several years; that scene is improving, meaning more demand for SIAL products.
HIGH DIVIDENDS AS BONDS PLUMMET
When you open the chemical storage cabinets in any labortory, most containers have one thing in common - "SIGMA-ALDRICH"...When scientist and researcher has chemical in mind that needed to be ordered, SIAL is one of them (another is Fisher Scientific, TMO, I also give a UP thrumb)...SIAL won't grow as big as other big names (GOOG, AMZN, you name it), but it is one of the big names in the scientific community. More importantly, they are so efficient that other small player can't compete with them.
Number 1 in their class.
terrific long-term franchise in life science reagents; good entry point
Good company, growing cash flow - solid products and place in the ScienceIndustrialComplex. *****
million $ port.
Manufactures advanced biochemicals and equipment and sells them in 40 counties. PE of 19. Why?
Average 10 year ROE of 20%. Industry leader.
SIAL is a pretty safe bet. With a beta of 0.76, it is less risky than the market. SIALs financials are much stronger than the industry average, and they have a smart mangement team. Sigma-Aldrich also has a really low debt level. SIAL is a steady performer, and its share prices have moved up at a pretty steady rate. And, though this stock may not have spectacular short-term gains, it is a safe, long-term play. Since it divested its metals division and decided to focus on research chemicals, it has outperformed steadily for the last 6-7 years.
Very underpriced for a high quality health chemical research stock. Their pipeline of antibodies to link to all 22,000 known human proteins will be vital for future research in all fields of medicine.
bio 101 we all need high tech bio materials
Extra $10B for the NIH in the stimulus package; some will end up in SIAL's pockets.
Triple weekly bottom at 35, 14 weeks trading at the 40 level showing zero momentum. Trading between the 9 and 18 weekly moving average. Buy at 40, stop at 38
In a former life, I did a bit of Chemistry. This morning slurping my favourite hot-solvent extracted filtrate (that's coffee people) I saw the symbol SIAL and Sigma Aldrich zip across the CNBC ticker. That's a blast from the past I've seen before and kept meaning to investigate. SIAL trades at a PE of 15 and a yield of 1.4%. It's tied to life sciences and research chemistry. It's chemical catalog is practically an academic reference, any chemist knows if you can't buy it in the Sigma Aldrich catalog, your going to have to hit the cookbooks to figure out how to make it yourself. I've giving this stock the green thumb today in a difficulty market because my previous life tells me this company is going to be a steady earner whose earnings are going to be fairly solid.
Steady dividend, reasonable P/E, retaining it's value well through the downturn, I think they have positive prospects going forward. Recent drop is them being the baby in the bath, I reckon.
lots of insider selling seems to be going on, including the head of R&D. Maybe just taking advantage of the stock being over $60 but too much for my tastes.
This is one of my favorite companies in the biotch support space. I ended a previous pick as raw materials costs were rising, but that trend is reversed and the stock is cheap again. Time to re-up and probably rebuy in reality as well. Overseas growth is still solid as well.
