Mid-week Tip

Branded ceramics and fragrances manufacturer Portmeirion (LSE: PMP) has exceed not only its 2020 interim revenues but also its 2019 interims. Even if acquisitions are stripped out the organic growth is 7%. Profitability has rebounded and investment in manufacturing and marketing will provide a base for significant growth over the next two years.

The share price jumped following the interims but there is still a lot more to go for. There is no interim dividend, but a final dividend is promised. The yield could be just under 2% and there would be a significant increase for 2022.

The shares are trading on around 18 times prospective 2021 earnings, falling to 12 next year. The strong brand portfolio underpins the valuation and there will be substantial progress in profit over the next few years. Buy.
