A close up on Rentokil

#FTSE #Nasdaq

A colonoscopy is probably pretty high on the list of things blokes don’t talk about. While undergoing one on Friday, the subject of Rentokil drifted into my addled brain as I watched the live video showing what was happening inside. The idea of a film camera, a laser, and garden shears being guided up ones nether region was horrific but this is the reality we all face, once past the age of 50 and a health service determined to protect people. A bowel cancer test, routine every two years, revealed something questionable, but with 95% of results being ‘false positives’, real terror came from the concept of what the procedure entailed.

To be utterly truthful, the worst slight discomfort came from the needle administering local anaesthetic, rapidly forgotten while a fascinating hunt for what looked like wild mushrooms inside the colon took place. When one was found, it was chopped down, then cauterised with a laser. There was no pain, despite the brutal war being waged internally, and eventually the film crew exploring my colon engaged reverse gear, their enemy defeated. The exercise was a “false positive”, samples taken revealing something called polyps, essentially skin tags. It all felt very routine except for the genius idea which allowed the patient a live action view. The last time I’d seen anything like this, I’d been watching a Rentokil guy feeding a probe along a cavity wall.

Of course, thanks to an anaesthetic high, I started to question why Rentokil don’t offer such a scanning service to the NHS. The idea of one of their distinctive vans pulling up, the driver telling a patient to just bend over, and…. You get the idea. And the real message is, unlike the writer, don’t panic at the thought of such a procedure. Getting your teeth cleaned is substantially worse in terms of discomfort.


Once the drugs wore off, the idea of reviewing Rentokil share price remained as it’s been a while and doubtless, with a return to offices, the company should surely experience an upsurge in business.


Currently, Rentokil share price doesn’t entirely share my optimism for their future. It appears weakness below 508p risks triggering some near term reversal down to an initial 493p with secondary, if broken, down at 472p and a very probable bottom. Curiously, it feels like overall market conditions are presently inhibiting the share price as above 550p (Blue) is supposed to trigger imminent recovery to an initial 609 with secondary, if bettered, at 627p and some hesitation.

In terms of panic, we’d certainly have concerns should the price manage to close a session below 472p. This risks being quite problematic, signalling the potential of reversal to a trend breaking 445p, unfortunately finding itself in a zone where an eventual bottom at 261p calculates as possible. For now, we suspect 472p shall prove to be an eventual bounce point and thus, suspect this shall be a share worth watching.

Unlike the live video feed from my colonoscopy! (shudder)

Our commentary is in two sections. Immediately below are today’s updated comments. If our commentary remains valid, the share can be found in the bottom section which has a RED heading. Hopefully, this will mean you no longer need to flip back through previous reports. HYPERLINKS DISABLED IN THIS VERSION

Please remember, all prices are mid-price (halfway between the Buy and Sell). When we refer to a price CLOSING above a specific level, we are viewing the point where we can regard a trend as changing. Otherwise, we are simply speculating on near term trading targets. Our website is www.trendsandtargets.com.

UPDATE. We often give an initial and a secondary price. If the initial is exceeded, we still expect it to fall back but the next time the initial is bettered, the price should continue to the secondary. The converse it true with price drops.
