Sector Peers

Of course, there are a number of other health care stocks that also offer excellent future potential. For example, Shire (LSE: SHP) (NASDAQOTH: SHPG.US) is forecast to double its sales by 2020 which, if met, would be a truly stunning result at a time when many of its pharmaceutical peers are struggling to even tread water. And, with Shire trading on a PEG ratio of 1.1, it still seems to offer excellent value for money.

Meanwhile, BTG (LSE: BTG) also offers excellent growth potential at a very enticing price. Its bottom line is forecast to rise by 27% next year and by a further 51% in the following year which, when combined with a P/E ratio of 36.6, equates to a PEG ratio of only 0.5. As such, it appears to be worth buying at the present time – even though its shares have already risen by 37% in the last year.

Vast Opportunity

So, with Bioquell, Shire and BTG all having excellent growth potential, they appear to be well worth buying at the present time. Certainly, they may be more volatile than many of their UK-listed peers but, for long term investors, they could prove to be very rewarding investments.

Sorry but earnings are the profit not revenue. However I am not sure at what level the profit is taken - Pre tax? Post tax? Before nasty things like interest and depreciation? All very confusing.

PE Ratio Help
4 Mar '15
Could somebody please hlep me with working out the PE ratio of BTG. I am pretty new to share dealing and have found wildly different numbers quoted for BTG's PE number.

PE= Share price/Earnings per share

Where EPS=Revenue/number of shares.

Todays share price is 740p, the shares in issue are 381 million and the full year revenue for year ending March 2015 is £360 million (as quoted here: https://www.btgplc.com/investors/press-releases/btg-plc-updates-revenue-guidance-and-ceases-publication-of-interim-management-statements/). Therefore the EPS (in pence) is (36000000000p/381000000shares) 94.5p therefore the PE ratio is (740/94.5) 7.8. This number is an order of magnitude smaller than I can find online.... Can anyone tell me where I went wrong?

Thanks Peter

Think I've found the reason for the drop:

"BTG plc 19th February
(LSE:BTG) announces that application has been made to the UK Listing Authority and the London Stock Exchange for a block listing of 230,000 ordinary shares of 10 pence each under the BTG Performance Share Plan, to trade on The London Stock Exchange and to be admitted to The Official List. The new shares will, when issued, rank pari passu with the existing ordinary share capital of the Company. It is expected that admission will commence on 23 February, 2015."

Think price drop could be profit taking before 5th April (Capital Gains) There is still some large buys.

Why the recent fall?
26 Feb '15
Anyone any idea why the SP has suddenly dropped off lately? There haven't been any broker downgrades as far as I can see.

Overpriced? Or still good value?
18 Feb '15
All, BTG shares have risen well in the last year although they have flattened off recently. There have been some strong recommendations in the recent past, by various brokers/advisors/sites. What are peoples opinions, are the shares overpriced or are they still good value? Thanks

I think it's the crowd here who are not chirpy. The chat on other boards is regular.
