The link above: "Croda International (LON: CRDA) was upgraded by equities researchers at Canaccord Genuity to a "sell" ". I suppose the recommendation before was "give away".

Oct 2, 2012 11:22 AM GMT BASF SE (BAS) named a new head for its European personal-care chemical business as it hones the unit's focus after a disappointing set of results from additives and ingredients used in cosmetics. Jan-Peter Sander will take up the role of senior vice president of personal care in Europe on Oct. 1, succeeding Simon Medley, who is leaving to "pursue his career outside the group," Ludwigshafen, Germany-based BASF said in a statement. BASF is seeking more synergies and cost savings from its integration with Cognis after a dip in performance at its care- chemicals business, Chief Executive Officer Kurt Bock said July 26. BASF paid $3.8 billion for Cognis, which was folded into BASF's care chemicals division that saw a decline in second- quarter sales and earnings. "We will continue to establish BASF as the market-leading supplier to the personal care industry by focusing on anticipating customers' current and future requirements and providing the market with innovation-driven solutions," Sander said today in the release. BASF did a "very detailed" study into whether it may be losing market share to competitor Croda International Plc (CRDA), though there was no evidence of this happening, Bock said in July.

Market seems to be anticipating the growth is continuing. Here's what they said in June. I particularly like the high margins. The acquisition of IRB is an important strategic step and follows our commitment to look for leading edge technologies and R&D capabilities that will accelerate growth in our core business. Croda's resilient track record of growth rests on our consistent ability to bring innovative, high margin products to market and expand our presence in emerging economies. Assuming no significant change in market conditions in the near term, we remain confident that this strategy will enable us to make further progress in the second half of 2012."

LONDON (SHARECAST) - It took a while for the market to fully digest the results from speciality chemicals producer Croda International, but once it did the shares raced ahead. Strong demand for the group's products in the USA offset weaker trading conditions in Europe, while a change in the product mix sold led to an improvement in margins.

I suspect there's more positive price action - not much of a fan of Questor.He usually misses the boat. There could be a mild retrace though - after yesterdays storming gains. LONDON (SHARECAST) - In the Telegraph, Croda, the speciality chemicals firm is given high praise for its technology driven sales offering, which includes ingredients for use in lipstick and other cosmetics. The firm's shares trade on nearly 18 times earnings, which is high, and 'given the backdrop', the recommendation is hold

Strong demand for its speciality chemicals in America offset weaker trading conditions in Europe for Croda International in the first half of 2012. Profit before tax in the six months to the end of June rose 6.3% to £132.6m from £124.8m the year before, while in the second quarter alone profit before tax rose 5.3% to £67.5m from £64.1m. First half sales rose 2.4% to £572.9m from £559.6m in the first half of 2011, while second quarter sales edged up 0.1% to £281.9m from £281.7m a year earlier. Average prices increased by 4.2%, primarily driven by price increases in Europe but also a change in the mix of products being sold. In the second quarter, the Consumer Care division's sales rose 2.4% to £150.8m from £147.3m the year before, the Performance Technologies division grew sales 0.9% to £105.6m from the preceding year's £104.7m while the group's smallest division, Industrial Chemicals, saw sales tumble 14.1% to £25.5m from £29.7m in the second quarter of 2011. The group noted that the second quarter of 2012 saw fewer trading days in Europe than in the corresponding period of 2011. Half-year earnings per share rose 8.1% to 66.9p from 61.9p last year, and the interim dividend has been increased in line with earnings growth, to 26.75p from 24.75p. Net debt at the end of June had been reduced to £208.0m from £253.3m a year earlier as a result of strong free cash flow generation. "These are a robust set of results which have been achieved despite challenging trading conditions in Europe. Against strong 2011 comparatives and adverse currency translation, both core business segments have made further progress. It is particularly pleasing to see Performance Technologies delivering improved margins and continuing to demonstrate the benefits of increased innovation," said Martin Flower, the Chairman of Croda. "Assuming no significant change in market conditions in the near term, we remain confident that this strategy will enable us to make further progress in the second half of 2012," Flower added.
