Dischem falls into buying territory ahead of results

Dischem falls into buying territory ahead of results

We bought into Dischem back in May at R30.50 and added to it in July at R28.00 banking us 12.5% when we closed it at our trailed stop loss. 


It has again fallen below R30.00 and support should build at R28.00 with any sell-offs below that level being short lived. 


Management provided an update to expected earnings for the FY2019 that will be a tailwind for the share price to move back above R30 and towards a target of R37.50.   


The interim results due next week Wednesday will provide a little more colour to the past 6 months to August. Analysts will be looking closely at the wholesale division which Management guided would be at break even at FY 2019. 


Management will have an opportunity to provide an update to the market, if they are on target we should see a strong bounce above R30.00 


Buy Dischem at R28.05 for a move above R30.00 in the short term.
