AUSTRALIA: BRL Hardy shares at a low for the year
Shares in the Australian wine group, BRL Hardy, fell to their lowest level in nearly a year yesterday. BRL Hardy shares have fallen by 11% since the beginning of the month amid concerns that the company's earnings could be affected by heavy discounting and its high multiples. The company is thought to be trading at a relatively high price-to-earnings ratio of 12 times 2002 earnings.
Several brokers have reduced their earnings-per-share estimates for the company and their 12-month price targets for the stock. The consensus earnings per share forecasts for the full year are now $A0.49, down from $A0.52.
