Investors Chronicle Tips Bodycote BODYCOTE COPES WITH HEAT Much is made of Bodycote 's heavy exposure to Europe and the inevitable currency impact. Yet the heat treatment specialist makes more money from fast growing sectors, like aerospace and energy, than anything else, which should offset turbulence elsewhere – leaving the shares looking too cheaply rated. That said, management admit that 40 per cent of the business – the automotive and general industrial operations in Europe – is softening. French car manufacturers are struggling and Germany was weaker in the second quarter. This has rippled out to Poland and the Czech Republic and China has been a "bit less exciting". Still, these trends have been well-flagged and weaker demand in emerging markets – just 10 per cent of sales – isn't expected to last. Significantly, 60 per cent of the business is in growth mode. Cars and trucks are still selling well in North America and sales to the aerospace and defence industry grew nearly a fifth during the period, with the headline operating profit margin having hit 24 per cent. That trend is unlikely to change given the production ramp-up at Boeing and Airbus. Elsewhere, revenue from oil and gas work was up a third, and North American mining and agricultural equipment made a big contribution, too. Investec Securities has trimmed forecasts for full-year adjusted pre-tax profit by 4 per cent to £88m, giving adjusted EPS of 34.8p (from £80.9m and 32.1p in 2011). IC VIEW: Bodycote carries little debt and pays a decent dividend. Demand from aerospace and energy markets is growing fast, too, and a forward PE ratio of nine factors in a weak Europe. BUY.

Profits Rise 9% to £43m BODYCOTE PROFITS RISE NINE PER CENT TO £43M Engineering giant Bodycote posted a near-nine per cent hike in interim profits as sales topped £300m. Bodycote, which has its headquarters in Macclesfield, announced pre-tax profits of £43.8m for the six months to June 30, up from £40.3m, and increased its first-half dividend by 11 per cent to 4p. Sales grew 4.5 per cent from £288.2m to £301.3m, boosted by strong growth in aerospace, oil and gas and from the automotive market in north America, which offset weaker demand from the sector in Europe. Bodycote, which heat-treats jet landing gear and engine turbine blades as well as other parts for plane and car makers and energy and defence businesses, is investing in new facilities in Toulouse and in Jinan, China, and is expanding its operations in Mexico and Ohio. The firm paid £32.6m in April for the heat treatment business of US business Curtiss-Wright Corporation, which Bodycote said had performed ahead of expectations. Bodycote chief executive Stephen Harris, above, hailed a strong first half performance despite weaker demand in Europe, and said growth in aerospace and energy together with new technologies is expected to counter the effect of slowing economies in the second half.

HI CR - if only one person could have that effect on the market! Results looked ok to me but not good enough to break out of the downtrend. I ran a long from 311 and sold at 328 - keeping an eye open for another trade.

Mechanical Trader is the kiss of death - these might have risen today had he not been here imo. Investec slashed their target, that hasn't helped either imo. CR

Closed just above the downtrend - punters chasing it up today but then closed ahead of results tomorrow. If it closes above 327.5 tomorrow then I will be tempted to go long a close blow would suggest a test of 300 as the long-term support.

deej I always use guaranteed stops because I have been hammered using non-guaranteed stops once too many times and as a result I am now a more conservative trader. For example BOY report on July 26th if the market reacts badly it could easily fall through the 300 support line and I wouldn't want to get burned. IG guaranteed stops are 10% away from the prevailing price so that gives a decent safety margin. Also I believe that IG stops are triggered on the basis of trades not spread. Cheers and best

Toffeeman, I had my spread with IG. They work off what the bid or offer price is at the time. I just won't bother with stop losses from now on. I have had fingers burned a couple times. Thanks

Deej There is often a large spread on stocks when the market opens - but as I understand it a stop can only be triggered via an automatic trade - and there wasn't one at your stop level.

Interims on the 27th - there's a lot of bad news in the price here imo - too much in fact I'd say. Reckon these could have a 10% bounce here easily imo. CR

I queried it and Mark was correct. When it 1st opened there was a large spread, which took me out. Thanks for your replies
