CSL.ASX reported FY16 revenue of $6.1b on EBITDA of $1.65b. The $500m share buyback is less than conducted in the previous 2 years but will still provide marginal buy side support to underpin the stock. In FY17 we see revenue growing to $6.5b and EBIT in the range of $1.8b suggesting the underlying business can continue to grow at around 12%. This places CSL.ASX on a 12 month forward PE of 27x with a yield of 1.4% assuming dividends per share of $1.30.
An okay result and a stable outlook underpins CSL as a buy write . We own it at lower levels in the model and generated significant call premium earlier in the year when selling December call options.
