Rentokil Initial – good news that I still haven’t required its pest-control services (and I am still not buying the shares either)

By Chris Bailey | Tuesday 1 November 2022

Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.

About six months ago I observed that Rentokil Initial (RTO), founded in 1925 as a pest-control business, was “almost perfectly in the middle of the 450-600p range over the last year”. And that it “need to be a bit cheaper to have another look…if you own the stock, then you have probably held it for ages and are very happy to do so, but there is no need to chase this one if you do not”. A bit like the FTSE 100, there has been just a bit of volatility since then but now we are kicking around a similar share price. Is there any need to change my thoughts from back in April, or not?
