Rollins: Strong Q2 But Questionable Valuation
On July 28, ROL presented its Q2 results, with revenue and EPS coming above the consensus estimates, thus bringing the count of consistent quarterly revenue surprises to 9. Total Q2 revenues were up by over 15% to $638.2 million, largely driven by growth in two lines that account for most of the sales: commercial and residential. 2021 has been a challenging year for the company, as the share price has been riding a bumpy rollercoaster. ROL is exhibiting characteristics of a growth stock trading at a huge premium both to the industry and to the peer. But is it worth overpaying? My answer is no. Last year, I said the stock might be considered if EV/EBITDA dips below 30x, and I still think it might be worth considering with the multiple in the twenties. But now, all things considered, ROL is a Hold.
