The Myhealthchecked PLC (LON: MHC) share price surged 7% after releasing its half-year unaudited results for the six months ended 30 June 2022. The results were better than expected as they exceeded the forecasts issued by the company’s management team.
Investors cheered the results as Myhealthchecked’s revenues surged almost three times to £9.8 million versus the £3.3 million recorded in a similar period last year. The consumer home-testing healthcare company noted that it generated record-breaking revenues of £6.8 million in July after the six-month period ended.

Myhealthchecked’s gross profits rose to £1.5 million versus last year’s £1.1 million figure, while its pretax earnings improved to £0.37 million from the £0.20 million registered in H1 2021. The company noted that it was still investing in its business and that the cash generated could fund the subsequent phases of its growth strategy.
MHC revealed that it delivered over 6.4 million COVID-19 lateral flow tests during the first half and had already delivered another 5 million tests after the period ended. The company also launched a new at-home DNA tests range exclusives sold by Amazon.com.
Myhealthchecked plans to launch a new blood testing kit in Q4 2022 and is currently building the technology to support it.
Penny McCormick, MyHealthChecked PLC’s CEO, said: “We have exceeded our expectations for revenue performance in the first half of the year and have further demonstrated our position of strength, which has been earned through strong delivery and consistent customer service, despite even greater COVID unpredictability than experienced in 2021.”
“Cash generation has been a top KPI for us to ensure that we can self-fund our next growth phases and invest in building great technology and services for a successful and sustainable future.”
So, should you buy MHC shares? The short answer is no. The shares are trading in the middle of a broad trading range. I would buy near the bottom or after a break above the upper resistance zone.
