Business Description: Vision Eye Institute Limited (VEI) is an ophthalmic services provider focused on the operation and management of eighteen consulting clinics, eight state of the art day surgeries and seven refractive and laser eye surgery centres in Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland.
Strategy Analysis: The rationale of the model is to remove administration and marketing tasks from the doctors to achieve economies of scale, and in equipment expenditure. Management has been careful to establish and preserve a culture of doctor sovereignty. The group has a hub and spoke model with a number of consulting practices feeding a well-resourced central surgery facility in each region of operation. This makes expensive, modern equipment more affordable via higher utilisation. In terms of growth VGH is particularly focused on Southern Queensland where there is a rapidly increasing population of retirees. There is also focus on strengthening and leveraging the Vision brand, which could become very valuable in what is otherwise a fragmented market.

Today, Australian investors will not have to go it alone buying stocks as they did for much of last week. Bargain hunters this morning will be supported by the morale boosting encouragement of a 3% turnaround in the German Dax and a 264 point rally in the Dow Jones.

â€śFinancial markets are artificially priced. In the bond market, there is nothing normal about a three year German Bund yielding â€śminusâ€ť 10 basis points.â€ť
