Shore Capital cuts Hill & Smith after strong run

Shore Capital has downgraded Hill & Smith (HILS) as the shares in the specialist barrier manufacturer look ‘fairly valued after a good run’.

Analyst Tom Fraine downgraded his recommendation from ‘buy’ to ‘hold’. Shares fell 6.7%, or 94p, to £13.20 on Wednesday following a 14% increase in both revenue and profit for 2022.

Fraine forecast an operating profit of £105m for this year but said it was ‘very conservative’ and he sees ‘scope for upgrades’.

‘We believe the company is well placed to navigate through adverse macroeconomic conditions, with close to half of its sales driven by public sector spending,’ he said.

‘The shares trade on 16 times our upgraded full-year 2023 earnings per share forecasts… and now appear to be fairly valued. We downgrade our recommendation…; following a strong recent share price performance, and see more upside for [infrastructure services provider] Renew (RNWH), which is considerably cheaper despite generating higher returns on invested capital, higher historic earnings growth, and having a lower risk profile.’

US exposure a boon to Hill & Smith, thinks Shore Capital

Specialist barrier manufacturer Hill & Smith (HILS) is being supported by public sector spending and greater exposure to the US has left it well positioned, says Shore Capital.

Analyst Tom Fraine retained his ‘buy’ recommendation on the transport infrastructure company, which was rose 1.1% to £12.74 after a full-year trading statement on Wednesday.

Hill & Smith said it expected full-year operating profit to be at the top end of the current analyst consensus thanks to outperformance in the US.

‘We believe the company is well placed to navigate through adverse macroeconomic conditions, with close to half of its sales driven by public sector spending,’ said Fraine.

‘The quality of the group has increased through recent M&A and the US now drives more than 50% of underlying operating profit. It is well positioned, in our view, to grow its high-margin galvanising business and increase sales into the US and UK highways market,’ the analyst said.

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 Plc issued a positive trading update for the 4-month period to 31 October 2022 this morning. Trading has been robust, the full year outlook is expected to be ahead of expectations. Underlying FY22 operating profit is now expected to be above £89.7m, the top of current analyst expectations, suggesting growth of close to 60%. Revenue from continuing operations is 18% ahead of the prior year. And management expect to make further progress in FY23. The balance sheet is solid and the Group has just agreed a new syndicated revolving credit facility of £250m. Valuation looks a little unhelpful with forward PE ratio at 13.0x, but there is scope for positive EPS surprises following today’s release. The share price also lacks positive momentum for now. HILS is a solid and growing business, but the share is one to monitor for now...
