|Potential reaction on The Weir Group (WEIR) to analysts' perspective in the company's stock
|"Throwing more good money at keeping the commodity bubble alive has helped the stock recover some respectability after the oil-related collapse last year. Investors should use this opportunity to divest before everyone recognises that China cannot pile unwanted steel to the moon and that demand for iron ore will collapse once sanity returns to China. The graphs below highlight the problem – US steel prices have recovered thanks to heavy tariffs on Chinese steel while Chinese steel mills are facing bankruptcy as their prices fade after the March/April stimulus ran out of steam." - Panmure
|It's really interesting that most of the RNS reports are from over the pond suggesting they see good value here. I suspect they are far more tuned into the oil rig count and pickup in this sector than we are over here.
It will be interesting to see what happens Monday with another rise in the rig count. The market reacted very positively last Monday.|
|there was a bid attempt in the past----when the dollar was weaker --- a bid now at around GBP 15 may well develop into a battle---and would cost the biddr less in USD terms|

"Today’s trading update was all about being able to say “ahead of market expectations” and squeezing the bears. However, these are expectations that have been steadily falling throughout this year. Indeed, the company IR rushed out a new consensus only yesterday, which for H1/16 was down 3% from the consensus sent on April 11. The risk with this communication strategy is that at some stage the company will have to deliver against the recovery valuation of 20x 2016 consensus EPS ..."|

|Need these Arabs to basically realise that civil unrest in their countries is a given, they think they can continue to behave irresponsibly, they are as backward as they behave, if it was not for western tastes and the fact that we continue to play a role in the stability of their countries, they would already have imploded, it's time they come to their senses and start to understand that religion is not a weapon for political means!|
|Since the last set of results, at half year, this stock has declined nigh on 45%, clearly markets have become tougher since then and profits will have been impacted with little sign of improvement for some time to come, are these good value or do we continue to decline, that is the question!|
|If oil goes to $20 per barrell and commodities don't recover for 18 months plus.....|
|Well I bought some (more) today at 10.17. Hopefully a short term trade.
About six months ago we had takeover rumours when the price was £17-£18. How times change|

|why don't WEIR and AMFW merge ?|
|The bad news may be priced in here|
|We have now seen the extent that the fall of oil prices has had on this company. Everyone is now bracing themselves for the impact that mineral extraction, or more to the point, lack of, will have early next year - just look at Glencore. I am not intending to trade in the stock market for quite a while now, but all the cost cutting in place will not compensate for the reliance that Weir has on both oil and mineral extraction.|
|Yep that's what I figured ...ta|
