What Happened to Elders Ltd’s Share Price?
Shares in agribusiness firm Elders Ltd [ASX:ELD] enjoyed a nice bump in today’s soft Aussie stock market. The 176-year-old company grew more than 3.5% in value to close at $2.93. Elders’ stock price is pushing back toward the three-year high it achieved in January.
Why Did This Happen to ELD Shares?
Today, Elders’ management presented the firm’s growth plans to an audience of keen agriculture investors at a conference hosted by PAC Partners. They discussed a variety of ways to improve Elders’ capital efficiency and mapped out a path for earnings before interest and tax to potentially grow by 122% between 2014 and 2017.
Investors at the conference must have loved what they heard. Although Elders is still improving off a very low base, today’s healthy share price action shows that the stock still holds great potential to enrich investors.
What Now For Elders Ltd?
If Elders can keep streamlining its formerly sprawling business, it will build a sustainable platform to drive shareholder returns. Elders is closely eyeing high-growth Asian markets as potential export destinations. As long as the ‘Asian century’ keeps rolling on, Elders and its shareholders stand to benefit.
