Oh, you should have waiting around for a few more months. It takes time to bed in companies when they have purchased other companies and are growing quickly at the same time. BTG also received a good write up in the Times newspaper and were rated a Good Buy today.
Just sold at a loss. Life's too short to wait for this to recover. GLA

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.

RE: PE Ratio Help
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
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
