|Goldman Sachs note out...
Buy Smiths Group (£16.70 PT): Return of OSG can narrow discount
We forecast 3% OSG from FY18 (vs. 5y history of 0.7%) driven by (1) Cyclical rebound in O&G exposed John Crane; (2) Portfolio optimisation in Medical; (3) Structural growth in Detection. Portfolio pruning and improved cash conversion (5y historical average 57%) can further help to narrow the 24% sector discount. We are 4% above company-compiled cons FY17 EBIT.
|Was ther news here as Advfn shows a new alert but no news, and the price was very perky from the open|
|Shares are at an all-time high today, I think.
Onwards and upwards -- the sky's the limit!|

"We believe the new management is taking increasing risks with the balance sheet to counter years of underinvestment. The Detection business, which has been losing market share for years, faced a sharp fall in revenues. Morpho fills a technology gap but we doubt there was much competition for this asset because our analysis shows that Morpho has also been losing market share. While the music is playing (money is cheap), we fear the management will continue to dance as other divisions also need to buy profits. Once the music stops ..."|
|Like this move to focus more resources in the growing security market with the purchase of Morpho detection. Continue to see Smiths Group as excellent investment opportunity...|
|Positive news today: Agreements to boost free cash flow by GBP50 million in FY17 onwardsFollowing the announcement on 17 November 2015 relating to the Smiths Industries Pension Scheme (SIPS), Smiths Group plc is pleased to announce the finalisation of the triennial valuation of the TI Group Pension Scheme (TIGPS) at 5 April 2015. The agreement with the TIGPS Trustee now provides certainty of funding over the next 3 years for all Smiths Group's pension schemes, results in significantly lower deficits and delivers a substantial boost to free cash flow. As a result, the Group's on-going pension contributions will be materially lower than before.|
|Thanks, did not see that for some reason.
Bought a small amount on the dip, may add further down if available.|
|Did anyone spot the following statement in the latest annoucement re the crane management change:"Current trading for Smiths Group and John Crane is in line with expectations."|
|New post on Smiths - seems really really cheap to me...
|It has gone very quiet here. The most recent downturn seems to be reaction to Crane having some dependence on the O&G market, but surely this is already built into the share price and anyway there are several other strings to SMIN's bow. What are the chances of a breakup bid? The security and medical divisions should be worth more on their own in growth sectors, whilst Engineering would be left to plod on towards recovery.|
|Yes I have mentioned this elsewhere.|
|Jim Slater (who sadly passed away this week) always used to talk about Director buying being a good indicator. Yesterday there were some big buys from the top directors in SMIN. I have followed them in. DYOR but this may be a good entry point.|
|Update may be better than expected, although expectations were low.
Will have a few on a bad day, hopefully.|
