thomasthetank1: Read VSA Capital's note on HUNTING PLC (HTG), out this morning, by visiting hxxps:// "Yesterday afternoon Hunting (HTG) released a particularly negative trading update further to its downbeat trading statement earlier in April, which painted an uncertain outlook for the company. In this update HTG confirmed that weak performance in Q1 has continued throughout April and May, which does not come as a surprise. Indeed its share price fell 12% yesterday..."
davidoffetc: Not many CEO's can say "Industry outlook bleak. We are in a wilderness without a single path to guide us" and see their share price up over 20% !
davidoffetc: Don't know where you read that? Goldman cut share price target to 369.70 yesterday. Still apparently 'conviction buy' whatever that may mean.

apad: I wonder if family buys are a way of supporting the share price in order to ward off hostile takeovers? It must be a tempting target after all that capital investment - hard to know how many votes the family can control. I try to wait until a low has been left behind wipo - very difficult to control the inner chimp though, especially when my Mum notices the 3.3% yield. apad
citymohawk: I guess the key question is whether the HTG price is an over-reaction. I think the fact that they say "customer demand is not affected by recent oil prices" should definitely be taken with a pinch of salt, simply because its far too early days and I wouldn't have expected demand to be effected at this stage anyway. Investec seem to have downgraded saying its currently a premium but analysts change their views every 5 minutes on this.
apad: As posted on KENZ board: FT on AMEC: Samir Brikho has switched on the fog lights. On Tuesday, the chief executive of Amec, the UK oil services group, not only reported a 13 per cent jump in annual earnings per share; he also peered into the gloom to forecast that it would hit 100p by 2015, two-fifths higher than 2011's level. In addition, he announced a £400m share buy-back and a 15 per cent dividend increase – sharing the spoils of Amec's growing order book and a backlog of £3.7bn. That is rare optimism and Mr Brikho probably expected investors to be impressed. Instead, Amec's share price over the day barely moved. But that was not too surprising. Amec's shares already trade at about 14 times 2012 earnings, close to the FTSE 350 oil equipment services index's multiple. Although the company boosted EPS 13 per cent last year, it will need to maintain this clip to hit its 2015 target. The company believes it can do this organically. But it has also flagged that acquisitions are on the horizon. Debt-free Amec certainly has the capacity to buy some rivals. The £400m buy-back will soak up four-fifths of its current cash balance. But it is a strong cash generator. Assuming that it keeps its net debt below twice its earnings before interest, tax, and amortisation (£300m last year), and any purchase yields ebita of 23 per cent of its equity value – in line with Amec's – a £900m-odd acquisition is possible. So rumours it may try to buy UK rival Petrofac are likely to be false. Petrofac's market capitalisation is £5.3bn. That means any attempt would require a chunky equity call from Amec's shareholders – something Tuesday's share buy-back appears to negate. Smaller rivals Hunting or Cape are possible targets, but could be more asset heavy than Amec would like. But with its shares trading at fair value, further upside looks dependent upon acquisitions. apad reply: If you want to go hunting for AMEC takeover targets, go looking amongst the specialist engineers that bring a significant technical advantage to AMEC, rather than its general competitors. AMEC has significant technical expertise in nuclear technology (e.g. safety codes) - it will be looking for adding technical value in preparation for the start of the Nuclear New Build program. The Hunting speculation in the FT article was spot on, in terms of technical fit, if it is for sale. The interesting question is: "what's the short list?". apad
galles: Pyman, I'm not a chartist personally. My investment is based upon the fundamentals. This stock is very much pegged to the general commodity trend (naturally!) and so my belief is that if there is any persisted uptrend, then the general market plus the oil and gas price will need to have a positive move. Notwithstanding that, based purely on HTG's cash pile alone (50% of share price), their asset, no debt, continued dividend payment, these already give enough evidence to me to know there is a strong buttress to current share price. Any move north won't be unreasonable and can't see this being speculative. Perhaps others can comment on the chart? Anyone?
old giggleswickian: That is probably the least enthusiastic TS I have seen from HTG in 10 years. Bearing in mind that what remains of the company is the half with the best prospect for growth, performance is at best dull and not looking to be great for 2010. Usually when HTG give a good TS the share price falls but this has put on 20p which is a bit of a supprise to me. Having sold out earlier I shall sit this out a little longer and look for a better re-entry point. Ian.
ohisay: Included in HW sector note . At the current share price, the market is valuing the existing businesses at around £200 million which represents a P/E of 8.6x 2009 forecast earnings. We have confidence in the management's ability to make appropriate acquisitions but recommend a HOLD until the prospects of the new company become more visible.
