|Profit warnings always come in 3's...|
|Panmure downgraded Meggit today to SELL. Shares getting hit pretty hard. Down 3% already and trading at day lows.
I read the note on Research Tree ... see below:
"The shares have recovered 15% since the profit warning in October last year. The
management has boosted the rate of investment to counter the profit decline.
However, we expect further profit warnings"
"We believe the two main sources of expected profit growth –
advanced composites and aircraft braking systems – will fall short"
It's a 20 page note so haven't read all of it but makes some decent points.|
|Next week may be interesting|
|Up 6% today, is this the upturn we've been waiting for?|
|last post dec? share price due a turn around

I hope aerospace companies take note of the

|Today's FT Weekend guide draws attention to the Director deals- expect to see advance Monday.
Hmm just found this on the IC: site (mid september) and may shed some light on recent Director Buys......
Buffett acquisition highlights Meggitt's allure
Warren Buffett's recent $37bn (£24bn) purchase of aerospace parts supplier Precision Castparts highlights the allure of UK peer Meggitt (MGGT). And directors have recently been buying shares, too, as the components and sub-systems manufacturer boosts investment to capitalise on strong end markets. With last month's first-half results emphasising Meggitt's attractions and bid speculation growing, we think the shares look too cheap on 13 times forecast earnings.|
