Sectors Covered:

  • Multiple headwinds, both intrinsic and exogenous, have seen shares come under pressure for the last year and further weaken over the past quarter.
  • We believe plasma collection remains the main concern, with ongoing uncertainty
    on recovery timing, but model conservatively as we continue to view the likelihood of a more protracted recovery than the market is anticipating.
  • We see upside in Seqirus, on the potential for a bad northern hemisphere flu season, given increased susceptibility in the population.
  • While we make no changes to our estimates or PT, we believe share weakness offers an opportunity to buy a high-quality business at a discount. Move to an Add recommendation.


No changes to estimates; risk/reward attractive

While we see potential risk to consensus estimates, share price weakness places multiples at more attractive level regardless.

With no structural concerns and technicals supportive, we believe the risk/reward is more attractive and move to an Add recommendation.
