Strong rebound for established specialist
27 Feb 17
BB Biotech (BION) is a long-established investor in biotech innovation, offering access to a concentrated portfolio of c 30 companies covering a range of therapeutic areas. It seeks to provide long-term capital growth, but also offers a yield of c 5% as a result of a capital distribution policy adopted in 2012. Performance has been strong both over the long term and more recently, with the fund ranking first among peers (in Swiss franc terms) over one and five years, and also outperforming the benchmark NASDAQ Biotechnology Index over one, three, five and 10 years. Although biotech and healthcare stocks may continue to see some near-term share price volatility as the direction of US policy becomes clearer, BION’s managers point to lower-than-average biotech valuations as a source of support.
Sector specialist with high distribution policy
09 Feb 16
BB Biotech (BION) seeks to achieve long-term capital growth by investing in fast-growing biotech companies. A discount management programme adopted in 2012 allows it to return 5% of its value each year as a capital distribution, resulting in an unusually high yield (6.4% at 3 February) for a fund investing in a low-yielding sector. Biotech has performed strongly and BION has beaten the benchmark NASDAQ Biotech index in three of the last five years, although it has underperformed in a sharp sell-off since the start of 2016. The fund invests globally and across the size spectrum, with a concentrated portfolio heavily weighted towards 5-8 core holdings. It is currently focused more on primary care end-markets, where the lowercost, higher-volume model is less affected by political pressure on pricing.
Interim results lead to upgrades
27 Mar 17
Bioventix reported a strong set of interim results with revenues increasing by 32% (c.12-17% at constant exchange rates (CER)), driven largely by the continued roll-out of its customers’ Vitamin D assay products. This, in turn, led to a 41% increase in pre-tax profits and a 40% increase in adjusted EPS; which is reflective of the operational gearing of the business. We are upgrading our adjusted EPS to 78.7p (+5%) and, consequently, are raising our target price to 1750p. At this price level, the shares would trade on a 22.4x FY 2018 P/E and an EV/EBITDA of 17x. We await confirmation of Siemen’s high sensitivity troponin assay launch, expected in FY 2018.
