philanderer: Investors Chronicle: 'Hill & Smith does enough to placate markets' Shares in Hill & Smith (HILS) were marked down 43 per cent peak-to-trough following last August’s profits warning, but market sentiment, though far from bullish, has improved of late. Whether the infrastructure specialist’s full-year figures will provide additional reassurance is open to question as top-line growth is set against a 120 basis point contraction in the operating margin. Acquisition expenses, the cost of servicing defined-benefit pension schemes and a steep rise in goodwill impairments contributed to a 12 per cent decline in operating profits, although it’s clear that performance strengthened over the closing months of 2018. IC View The trading backdrop remains favourable, with infrastructure spending expected to ratchet up in both the UK and US markets, but the Q418 share price recovery has Hill & Smith trading in line with historical earnings multiples. Hold. Last IC View: Hold, 1,169p, 22 Nov 2018 HTTPS://www.investorschronicle.co.uk/shares/2019/03/06/hill-smith-does-enough-to-placate-markets/

redartbmud: Large share price falls at engineer Hill & Smith (HILS) are a huge over-reaction and have presented a perfect buying opportunity, says Peel Hunt. Analyst Henry Carver retained his ‘buy’ recommendation and reduced the target price from £15.50 to £13.80. The shares are down 25% after the company last week reported a ‘tough’ first quarter due to poor weather and commodity price volatility. ‘We see this as a compelling buying opportunity,’ said Carver. ‘The miss just reminds us that after a phenomenal five-year spell, Hills is not bullet-proof, so we are basing our revised £13.80 target price on a price/earnings ratio multiple of 17.5 times rather than 19 times, which implies some 27% upside from here,’ he said.

redartbmud: Looks like the share price will be becalmed c£10.50 to £11.00, perhaps, in the short/medium term. Pity Berenberg cannot backup their assertions with a price target.

redartbmud: phil I have absolutely no doubt that they are on track for a significantly higher share price, but the line is never straight. My sell is very much an each way bet. I must not beat myself up if I am wrong, as I have a bigger holding, resulting from the trade. I do want to further increase my holding at some point. Just worried that, in some respects, the little country of Trumpville over the Pond is on Fullers earth, not our planet, for the near term. I await the next tweet.

matt123d: Going up! Erm 1% when the general market is up 2%. That's weak to me. It can't even reclaim the 5dma. Notice you're involved in WGB, unsure how you can recognise that to be a good investment but also think this is. HILS share price is at a 52week low, surely that must tell you something? I reiterate if 230p fails on this it's going a lot lower but at present appears to be finding some support so there may be about 10% upside if the general market is on the next leg up which I presume it is. Overall the price action and trend is down.

redartbmud: PS I am more interested in who bought the big chunks of shares the other day, when there were several buys ranging from 100k shares to 250k shares. Was it existing institutions topping up? Do they see an undervalued share price? Were they mopping up excess sales demand to stabilise the price? The share is not normally too widely traded.
