Monash IVF now a hold

Monash IVF's share price has risen 33% since its annual result and it's time for a downgrade.

It's been a bumpy few months for shareholders of assisted reproduction provider Monash IVF, which was hit by a labour dispute and increasing competition from low-cost IVF models, including Primary Health Care’s new bulk-billing clinics. Nonetheless, as we explained in Monash IVF: Result 2015 on 28 Aug 15 (Buy – $1.12), it was reassuring to see that the company was still able to increase prices by 3% over the year. 

The stock has risen 33% in the two months since the result, which puts it above our $1.40 Buy price so we’re downgrading to HOLD.

Note: Our Growth Portfolio and Income Portfolio own shares in Monash IVF.
