speedsgh: The share price won't have been helped by this IC article in the last few days. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- ... Back in the UK, Cookson has already taken the pain and James Tetley, an analyst at N+1 Singer, thinks Bodycote is vulnerable, too. "In July, both firms talked of weakness in Europe during the first half, but reasonably robust growth elsewhere, particularly in North America and emerging markets," he says. "That optimism seems to have ebbed away." Indeed, 57 per cent of Bodycote's first-half sales were from automotive and general industrials, much of that from Europe. True, the company boasts a solid aerospace business, but its shares have risen nearly a quarter since those results and sluggish growth elsewhere will hurt. "Now, Europe is probably weaker than expected and there are signs that the US is slowing, so it's difficult to see where growth is going to come from in 2013," warns Mr Tetley. The concern is that the big heavy truck, mining and general industrial companies have already begun rebasing their expectations for next year. "There may be an element of destocking in here, but it is currently too difficult to unpick," believes Mr Tetley. This worry was illustrated on Wednesday when US diesels engines maker Cummins warned on revenues for this year, cutting guidance by $1bn to $17bn due to delays in capital spending plans by customers.

drectly: are you trying to upset me by reminding me of the exercise exact details check, but basicly they were going to repay 80p / share after selling 25% of the business. In 2008 things got worse quickly and they changed to paying out 40p / share and debt reduction, so far so good and a sensible approach in the circumstances. Significant restructuring of the business, helped by the strong cash position and hopefully everyone impacted treated reasonably. Now for me the less clever part for shareholders. They decided to reduce the number of shares pro-rata from 19 to 11. If you had 19 shares it would change to 11 after the payment. If you took the 40p / share and bought shares you could in theory get back to 19. In practice the price was increasing so hard to do this. It was argued this meant they could maintain dividends etc. Or if a Director had a bunch of share options easier to get the share price up. What it meant if you did nothing was you sold nearly half your shares at about 100p each just after the Board had declined 350p / share So not impressed and only avoided a loss by a lot of share buy back which is time and effort. Plus tax on a payment to get back to where you started. The upside now, if someone buys the company. Previous offer minus say 25% for the part sold. A lot less shares in issue, so they could pay about 450p and equivalent to the old offer at 350p Anyway they and the sector are doing very well, so glad I bought back in, but not convinced Directors have shareholder interest as their first priority. Healthy results or possible T/O could see further gains, or take some of the very good gains the last two years a tough call anyones thoughts on that appreciated regards drectly

drectly: from the Inde Bodycote International Our view: Buy Share price: 301p (+25p) Some good tidings from Bodycote International, the engineering group, which yesterday said full-year profits would be at the top end of analysts' forecasts. The shares duly jumped, continuing an impressive rise over the past year which has seen the stock soaring by more than 60 per cent. Of course, this is the sort of good news that gets some investors nervous that they may have missed the boat – especially with the order book looking short and visibility about what lies ahead low. Nonetheless, we're pretty impressed and even taking account of the gains, trading on 12.4 times 2011 forecast earnings, the shares sit at a slight discount to the sector. The dividend yield of more than 3 per cent is also healthy compared with rivals. It's probably the case that the shares are approaching fair value, but we would suggest that there is still some juice left in the tank. So buy.

jadeticl: This thread has not attracted much interest of late, but the share price has been motoring along nevertheless. A gain of 150% in the past 18 months is good by most standards. Is the big rise so far today (more than 6% just now) due to two analysts raising it to BUY with a price tag of 340p? Or what else?

drectly: they might have a go at 280 ish and then raise to about 310 to complete and need a bit more to top up the Pension fund, based on existing share price and a typical initial 30% premium we can hope, but my guess there would probably be a bit of a leek if really being looked at and more volume they would though be getting 3/4 's of the Company for much less, a lot less shares to buy than before. So a return at some point still a good chance regards John

drectly: bookbroker, agree their financial position (thanks to last years sale) is strong, in the present climate you would anticipate a bit more of a premium for relatively safe divi, good yield and potential growth As realisticly a long time to see good growth, short term price of little consequence from Telegraph - Questor, missed before, it is generally positive Bodycote 108p +4p Questor says Buy LONG-STANDING investors in Bodycote International should be well accustomed to wearing their tin helmets as the metals engineer has seen its share price tumble sharply over the past two years. Yesterday, there was further bad news. The specialist thermal processing company fell into the red, unveiling a full-year pre-tax loss of £55.3m, compared to a £60.6m profit in 2007. To cut costs, it also revealed plans to slash 1,500 jobs and close or combine 31 of its sites. The market, however, has braced itself for a tumble in profits and responded well to the figures. The total cost of reorganising the group will be £85m – of which £77.6m has been charged to 2008's figures – but will save £18m a year. New chief executive, Stephen Harris, described the economic and trading environment as "difficult" but said the restructuring will allow it to cut down its cost base but concentrate on areas presenting "strong growth opportunities for the future". A quarter of sales are from treating metal parts for cars where there is understandably less demand nowadays. This business is higher volume, but generates lower profits so the group will move away from this to other specialist markets. These will include treating jet engines – where aerospace makes up 20pc of sales – and oil and gas pumps, which makes up a further 15pc of sales. Questor last looked at Bodycote in November – just after its shares had tumbled by a fifth after the group warned of a drop in profits and halved its payment to shareholders from the sale of its testing business to 40p a share. Investors who followed advice to hold onto the shares at 96p would be pleased to see Bodycote lift its total dividend 3.8pc to 8.3p. With the shares currently yielding 7.6pc and trading on 6.5 times forecast earnings, there are signs of the group stabilising. For the bold, buy.

drectly: mog exactly, 40p per share back actually ended up feeling like having to sell shares at 95p Bought what I could before the dilution and then once the cash back more at about 115p, so even with reasonable timing ended up with about 10% less shares. In theory they represent more of the company, but I share your sentiment. Impacted I am sure by Directors options, which means purchase at the low value means it is much easier to have a nice little earner when / if share price picks back up. Plus easier to show divi growth if you are paying a lot less divi's Winge over, they have post failure to accept the Sulzur bid (too early to have helped me) seemed to have got it right. Selling a part just in time for a decent price and then keeping more cash than originally planned, got the debt at a good level. I see them as at least as good a recovery as other UK engineering stock, but less risk without the debt. It may take 1 or 2 years, but once things pick up, company value divided by reduced number of shares should work out. Plus they should be able to do something good with the divi. I think if I did not hold, I would be tempted to wait for another dip to buy, we shall see drectly

mog: drectly, actually the shares were reduced 11 for 19 to account for the 40p cashback and keep the share price the same as before the cashback. Effectively shareholders have sold 8/19 of their shares to the co for 95p a share which I find disappointing. It does make me wonder if the share price was managed down during this period.....

masurenguy: Negative view from The Independent this morning probably won't help the share price ! .................................................................................... The Independent Tuesday, 18 November 2008 Investment Column: Bodycote tarnished by auto industry links By Alistair Dawber Our view: Sell Share price: 96p (-27p) Kicking a company when it is down is best avoided, but for buyers it is pretty tough to find anything nice to say about the engineering group Bodycote. The shares were down 22% yesterday as the company, a supplier of thermal processing services, announced a profits warning. The finance director, David Landless, added that it was "anybody's guess" how 2009 would pan out. About 20% of Bodycote's work comes from the toxic automotive industry, in Europe and the US. While the company may get disproportionately punished by the market for this part of the business, existing investors will take no solace from the fact that the shares were already down by more than 50% in the last 12 months, before yesterday's update. Yes, the stock is now cheap, but the indication from analysts is that this does not mean it will get catapulted upwards on signs of a recovery. Yesterday, watchers at Dresdner Kleinwort cut their recommendation from buy to sell. It is not true, however, that the company is a lost cause. The group has sold off its testing business, and while investors will be miffed that the cash handout from the proceeds has been halved, Bodycote will have a strong balance sheet heading into a downturn. Analysts at Singer argue that on a price earnings ratio of 9 times and enterprise value to Ebitda of 2.5 times, Bodycote shares are fair value. The group is cash generative and has a minimal pension deficit, they say, "but the sector is going through the downgrade phase so it will take a while for this value to emerge". The group's inherent value indeed may yet emerge, but it could well be after a long period of pain for investors. Sell.

drectly: when you look at the website, no indication of any problems with the sale, progressing through to the end of Oct. Basically equivalent to 25% of the business (rev and profit) being sold So getting half your money back for a quarter of the business. Even considering market weakness share price perfornance the last few weeks has been very week, so there is obviously some concern things may not follow the plan. My largest holding by far, so that would be unfortunate. Based on published data, 160 -80 gives a share price of 80 p now for a high yield, growth etc. and a high chance of being bought by a Swis campany, there are however some significant concerns with the business reflected in the price. An interesting month ahead potentially, good luck drectly
