We think ZTS’s multiple will be supported by: 1) its durable business model, 2) positive outlook for macro factors, and 3) solid execution by management. Upwards earnings revisions could come from: 1) higher-than- anticipated peak sales for new launches, 2) better-than-expected operating margins in 2018+, and 3) M&A." (10/17/2018)

Growth from new parasiticide products, vaccines and strong dermatology portfolio has also boosted the top-line. The Abaxis acquisition will further strengthen the company’s presence in the animal health diagnostics market, a fast-growing portion of the animal health industry which should further boost sales. Moreover, Zoetis five-year collaboration agreement with Regeneron to research the use of latter’s monoclonal antibody therapeutics in animals and discover new veterinary treatments will further diversify the broad portfolio. Shares of Zoetis have outperformed the industry in the year so far. However, Zoetis faces stiff competition from companies like Merck Animal Health.
