Peel Hunt: Hill & Smith a good US infrastructure play

Peel Hunt analyst Henry Carver believes manufacturer Hill & Smith (HILS) is one of the best ways for investors to play the wave of US infrastructure investment.

He said the group’s ‘strong’ first half showed revenues grew 20%, with strong momentum continuing in the US businesses, which accounted for 73% of underlying profit, while those in the UK were resilient against tough competition.

Management guided to 2023 operating profits coming in ahead of expectations, which Carver took to mean £4m more than Peel Hunt’s estimated £112.5m with a similar flow through to 2024.

‘We also see plenty of scope for further M&A – we understand there is an active pipeline and management has plenty of firepower to work with,’ he said. ‘Cash conversion in the first half was a useful 87%, and net debt-to-ebitda at the half year is sitting at 0.7 times, below a stated target of between one and two times.’

With the shares trading at 15 times earnings, and good prospects for the rest of the year, he reiterated his ‘buy’ recommendation with a price target of £16.80.

Investors Chronicle:

Hill & Smith well positioned for US infrastructure splurge

US infrastructure spending supports the long-term business case

....At 16 times consensus earnings, the shares don’t exactly scream value, but the technical outlook turned positive midway through January, and there is a forward yield of 2.8 per cent, marking this as a viable lower-risk addition to your portfolio.

Royal London: Hill & Smith can defy downturn

Specialist barrier manufacturer Hill & Smith (HILS) should continue to perform strongly given its end markets despite the uncertain economic outlook, says Royal London’s Craig Yeaman.

Yeaman holds the stock in his £807m Royal London UK Opportunities fund and in his latest update said the ‘manufacturer of infrastructure products was another contributor to performance’ at the end of 2022.

Investors reacted positively to a trading update where the company announced double-digit organic revenue growth, which enabled management to upgrade earnings guidance for the full year,’ he said.

‘While being mindful of the macroeconomic environment, management remains positive for the near-term outlook of the business given the end markets it is exposed to.’

The group also completed the £22.2m acquisition of US-based solar-powered lighting business National Signal in the fourth quarter. This followed the investment in Prolectric Services, which enabled it to gain a foothold in the off-grid solar lighting and energy solutions market.

Hill & Smith shares dipped 1% to £11.77 on Wednesday. They have fallen 35% in the past year.

Hill & Smith growth priced in, says Shore Capital

Sustainable infrastructure group Hill & Smith (HILS) is positioned to grow its high-margin businesses and increase sales, but there are more attractive opportunities elsewhere, says Shore Capital.

Analyst Tom Fraine retained his ‘hold’ recommendation on the stock, which closed up 1.1%, or 16p, at £15.20 after reporting 10% revenue growth in the four months to 30 April.

‘We believe the company is well positioned to grow its high margin galvanising business and increase sales into the US and UK highways market,’ he said.

‘However, we believe its growth opportunities are fairly reflected in the current share price. We see Renew Holdings (RNWH) as a more attractive opportunity for investors seeking to capitalise on an expected increase in government spending on infrastructure.’

MIDAS SHARE TIPS UPDATE: Bold Government infrastructure promises bode well for manufacturers including Hill & Smith

Midas verdict: Hill & Smith shares closed at £15.78 last week so investors who bought in 2014 have seen the price almost triple. Most of those gains arose under the former chief executive but Simmons is determined to do even better than his predecessor.

Cautious investors may choose to sell down now in case the new man is wrong-footed. Selling out completely would be a mistake, however. Hill & Smith is an obvious beneficiary of the infrastructure boom and if Simmons' plans work out, the shares could really motor.

(Alliance News) -Trade was muted at midday on Wednesday as investors look ahead to the unveiling of US President Joe Biden's bumper infrastructure spending plan.

Yield rose in the US ahead of President Joe Biden proposing a USD2 trillion infrastructure plan aimed at modernising the US's crumbling transport network, creating millions of jobs, and enabling the country to "out-compete" China.

The first phase of Biden's "Build Back Better" program, which he will unveil in a speech in Pittsburgh, will detail massive investment spread over eight years.

It plans to inject USD620 billion into transport, including upgrading 20,000 miles of roads and highways, repairing thousands of bridges, and doubling federal funding for public transit.

Investors Chronicle:

'Hill & Smith rebounds'

IC View

While Hill & Smith is right to acknowledge the potential impact of a mixed UK market on its business, its niche infrastructure offering and its rate of its US growth gives us cause for optimism in the second half, over a share price that has been perhaps unfairly depressed in recent times through external issues. With another record second half in the offing in spite of this uncertainty, we upgrade our rating. Buy.
