Do you have a dog, a cat or even a horse at home?

Certainly, like us, these pets do fall ill or suffer from various bodily ailments and sickness. As a pet owner, do you buy medicines to help cure your pet’s illnesses or ease their pain too? If you do, then PetMed Express Inc.(PETS) is a go-to pharmacy for pets in the U.S. 

For a non-pet owner like me, I think PetMed Express can still be a fantastic business in your portfolio. Let me share with you three reasons why PetMed Express Inc. should be in your portfolio.

First reason: 
PetMed Express is a pet pharmacy with over 11 million customers. They have the licensed to dispense prescription medications in all 50 states in the U.S. and the online veterinary pharmacy verification by the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy®. 

Second reason:
Fundamentally, this PetMed Express has a solid Return On Equity (ROE) of 23% as of the trailing twelve months. One more essential criteria that caught my eye was their debt – No long-term debt! At the current share price of $29,34, it has a PE Ratio of 19.18. 

Third reason:
Every investor love a company that pays a regular dividend, don’t you?
PetMed Express has been paying out dividend consistently for the past ten years and increasing the payout nearly every year! The payout has increased from $0.10 per share per quarter in 2009 to $0.30 per share per quarter in 2021. The increasing dividend payout brings about a current dividend yield of 4.07%.


PetMed Express share price has retreated 16.5% to $29.34 from $35.17 since the start of Q2. Based on PetMed Express stock charts, it is currently trending down and trading below the EMA200. Any further slide in price might see it slipped to around $22.50. 

Surely I would want to add PetMed Express into my portfolio, but at this moment, I would rather keep an eye until a more apparent entry sign appears.
