minerve: Citi: These are a robust set of results showing that the share gains in LDV diesel are able to drive material EPS growth, together with HDD. We think these results imply modest (0-5%) consensus upgrades. We expect the business to recover most of the one-time item hampering working capital and therefore FCF in the half. In clarification, JMAT has detailed further its contingent liabilities which relate to only 2 customers and notes the failures have not been demonstrated to be due to the coated substrate supplied by JMAT. JMAT believes it has defensible warranty positions in the matter, highlighting that any impact should be limited. With tighter emissions legislation in both HDD & LDV providing a positive backdrop for growth both near-term and medium-term in addition to their potential in cathode materials, we think the current share price continues to under-estimate the growth potential of the business– BUY.
gbb483: As per normal, a reasonable interim report is met with a collapse in the share price. Who do the MMs think they're kidding?
gbb483: Good set of results today, so given the perversity of the market I expect the share price to plummet today.
nosob sggih: there must surely be some massive earnings upgrades coming to justify the share price at this level
nosob sggih: many sound tech businesses dropped 90% after the bubble. JMAT share price has gone from 700 in 2009 to £30 while EPS has gone from 91p in 2009 to 142p in 2013 . historic PE is 21 and dividend yield is just 2%.
miata: I would think the good performance and guidance that they will will make steady progress in 2013/14 justifies a higher share price. Nevertheless the platinum price will be a major factor. "Performance in the first quarter of 2013/14 across the group has been good. Sales excluding precious metals (sales) were up 13% at GBP745 million with growth across all of the divisions. The group's underlying operating profit grew by 10% to GBP116.1 million (Q1 2012/13 restated GBP105.6 million). Underlying profit before tax was 8% ahead at GBP106.0 million (Q1 2012/13 restated GBP98.2 million). 25 Jul 2013 Johnson Matthey PLC JMAT Liberum Capital Buy 2,763.00 2,803.00 3,000.00 3,000.00
nosob sggih: i would think disappointing with unchanged guidance. the shares near record highs, these surely need very big upgrades to justify the share price ...
broadwood: Chemical peers Johnson Matthey and Croda International were lifted higher after Credit Suisse upgraded the companies from 'neutral' to 'outperform' and from 'underperform' to 'neutral', respectively, saying: "Both stocks had disappointing guidance and strongly negative share price reactions. We felt negative short-term fundamentals were thus fairly reflected in the share price
edgarssoni: From Resolution 16 – Special Dividend declaration and Share Consolidation Resolution 16 is an ordinary resolution by which shareholders are asked to declare a Special Dividend. In light of the strong performance of the Group in the 2011/2012 financial year, and following the board's review of the Group's balance sheet structure, the board considers it appropriate to propose a Special Dividend to shareholders, in addition to the Final Dividend, and accordingly recommends a cash return to shareholders of approximately £212 million. This proposed return of cash will be structured as a Special Dividend of 100 pence per Existing Ordinary Share and an associated consolidation of Existing Ordinary Shares on the basis of 21 New Ordinary Shares for every 22 Existing Ordinary Shares. If shareholders approve the Special Dividend, it will be paid on 17th August 2012 to those shareholders on the register at 5.00 pm on 3rd August 2012, with an ex-dividend date of 6th August 2012. As is common when an amount representing a significant proportion of the market capitalisation of a company is returned to shareholders, the board recommends that the Special Dividend is combined with the Share Consolidation. The Share Consolidation is intended, so far as possible, to maintain the comparability of the Company's share price before and after the Special Dividend. The total amount of the Special Dividend is equivalent to approximately 4.4% of the market capitalisation of the Company. The effect of the Share Consolidation will be to reduce the number of Ordinary Shares in issue by approximately the same percentage. It is anticipated, therefore, that the market price of each Ordinary Share should remain at a broadly similar level following the Special Dividend and the Share Consolidation. Shareholders will still hold the same proportion of the Company's ordinary share capital as before the Share Consolidation (subject to any fractional entitlements). Although the New Ordinary Shares will have a different nominal value, they will carry equivalent rights under the Articles of Association to the Existing Ordinary Shares currently in issue. The payment of any fractional amounts arising from the Share Consolidation will be made to shareholders at the same time as that of the Special Dividend (ie. 17th August 2012), but will be made separately. If Resolution 16 is not passed, the Special Dividend will not be paid and the Share Consolidation will not take place. Further details about the Special Dividend and the Share Consolidation are set out in Parts II and III of this circular.
miata: Citigroup Buy recommendation: We see JMAT as well-placed in a structurally growing market. We see upside to the share price as we think the current valuation does not fully discount the group's structural earnings growth potential in the coming years. Its market-leading positions in the fast-growing HDD and process catalyst markets should allow the company to grow EPS by about 14% p.a. for the next 5 years. Valuation at PE 13E of 12.0x seems undemanding for a company with ROCE of 18% and 14% EPS CAGR11-16E. Buy. Morgan Stanley JM has delivered a strong performance in H2 12 (especially in ET and FC), however we expect the outlook statement (essentially suggesting flat earnings for March, 2013 if PGM prices remain at current levels) to be a source of disappointment. A 100p special dividend will be welcome (worth 4.6% on the current price), but a 15x PE multiple for '13e is full, in our view. UW. Outlook statement likely to disappoint, consensus upgrades unlikely: JM expects further growth in ET and FC in the year to March, 2013, but suggests that this will be offset by lower profits in PMP if PGM prices remain at current depressed levels. Despite a clear 5% underlying EPS beat in FY 2012 (i.e. 153.7p versus consensus of 146.4p), consensus currently expects March, 2013 EPS of 156.5p (with a range as high as 164.4p), 2% growth on the reported 2012 result. We believe, given the cautious tone in JM's guidance on PMP profits, that consensus EPS upgrades are unlikely following today's results. 07 Jun Johnson Matthey PLC JMAT Numis Buy 2,281.50 2,660.00 2,660.00 Upgrades 07 Jun Johnson Matthey PLC JMAT Morgan Stanley Underweight 2,281.50 1,730.00 1,730.00 Retains MS seem isolated.
