Yes : I agree : as I've said before it's been under rated slightly compared with its peers and this should prompt a re-rating. It's interesting that while so many commentators preach gloom and doom (a cryptic reference to Stephanie Flanders !) sound companies with a good long term strategy (not least regional) continue to produce good results and remain optimistic about the future.

We might see some analyst upgrades off this imo. That should be price supportive.

Growth in our global Aerospace and Energy business outweighed the decline in Automotive and General Industrial markets in Europe. Improving business mix and the part-year benefit of acquisitions have enabled further improvements in performance and enhanced the Group's geographic balance. 2013 has started slowly and we are mindful of the near term macroeconomic environment. Nevertheless, at this early stage in the year the Board expects modest progress in 2013. Looking further ahead, the improvements made to the business in recent years give the Board confidence that Bodycote will continue to deliver good profits and cash through the business cycle." ======================= The outlook statement is a little conservative but I like the ROCE (increased to 19% from 16.5%), cash flow and profit growth. Progressive divi too.

Yes me too , and have done very well over the last year or so with them : tempted by REL at the moment on that basis, but don't want to put any more into equities and don't want to sell anything either !

Bluebelle - I bought back in to SXS. Don't like buying in higher than I sold but really liked recent numbers. I'm into quite a few zulus with the market cap filter removed.

Another few pence and I am out of here. It has been a good run and I am sceptical that the market recovery will sustain , at least in the short term. 521 will do me.

Cheeky little rise to close at 505p. I keep thinking I ought to bail out of these but it does keep running.So I shall sit on my hands for longer.

mayers Take a look at SXS. Subject to 3 broker downgrades earlier this month and has just powered to new all time highs on the back of results. BOY is currently significantly undervalued relative to its peers IMHO. Value will ultimately out - as it always does in the long run !

I have a feeling these have shrugged of the broker's adverse recommendation. A resurgance of China cannot do them harm. I continue to hold.

SO a SELL even though their target price is more than 10 % above the current price. What are they recommending with more than a 10% short term upside ? Brokers forecasts for most stckks are computer generated rubbish IMHO. EDIT I see they actually raised their target price to 440 from 390

455 on 12.08.99 and 544 on 19.05.98 according the Sharescope, wad (decided not to use wc !!!). Haven't held anything like that long myself, but Sharescope adjusts for share splits etc. so if there have been any these will be the adjusted figures. When you see how long it is since those highs, it does make you think that (successful) active management beats buy and hold !

No idea blubelle, who knows what goes on in the world of high finance ?. I think the Saudi,s are behind a lot of companies now, as funding has become harder to get, they have taken opportunity of this recession to take big stakes in the stocks that are bombed out. Given the secret nature of the Saudi,s, its hard to call ?, but they say buy the rumour, sell the news, something like that ?. I,m not buying any myself though, as I already hold a few, but given the cheap price I guess I,d rather be inside looking out, then outside looking in.

troutman That's interesting. I have no 'inside track' on either BOY or WEIR but the buying power of these sovereign wealth funds is immense so, with that sort of backing, anything is possible. I don't follow WEIR at all closely, but my perception - certainly if your buying a management and its track record (including acquisition histroy) - the Saudi's would be better of funding BOY rather than WEIR !

Hi Bluebelle I was speaking to my x brother in law, he works as an accountant for the company, and he said it was common knowledge Weir were sniffing so to speak, he said Weir were being funded by Saudi Arabia investment banks. Not sure if this is illegal insider information, as he said it was common knowledge ?, cannot find anything on the internet though ?. Lets just see what the New Year holds ?.

Hadn't seen anything, troutman, but are WEIR in a position where they could credibly offer anything remotely acceptable to BOY shareholders ?

Hi Anyone know about the rumour of a play for Bodycote from the Weir group in the new year ??.
