helm1: I thought the HY numbers were pretty good, but the market still knocked it back sharpish. Trouble is, the valuation is pretty high still, so there probably isn't much to go for on the share price for the next six months or so. Still, dividend increased, and outlook fair as long as the oil price stays resilient.
robinnicolson: I was assuming the recent share price decline was due to the company's exposure to emerging markets. They also received a downgrade from Credit Suisse today, from outperform to neutral. PT cut from 3250p to 2450p.
nfs: Share price has as of today made no progress at all in the last 12 months
jontyone: Don't know what was said on the Capital Market Day, but the share price has dropped about 5% since then.
cerrito: From today's Independent Rotork Our view: Take profits Share price: 1512p (-23p) Half-year results from Rotork – which makes valve controllers used in the exploration and water industries – yesterday looked like good news. Despite a "challenging trading environment", the company saw record revenue and profits in the first half – the former up 2.2 per cent to £184m, the latter by 9 per cent to £48m. Order intake was up by 8.5 per cent overall, with gains accelerating to a whopping 19.3 per cent year-on-year increase in the second quarter. The order book stands at £139m, some 7.4 per cent higher than at the end of December. And the prognosis for the second six months of the year is also good. Peter France, the chief executive, is cautious about currency movements and commodity-price increases. However, he says that the order book and balance sheet make him confident of further progress for the rest of the year However, investors might take a more equivocal view. Rotork's stock has gained 36 per cent since we last rated it a "hold" two years ago. But with steady increases of more than 27 per cent this year alone, and a full-year multiple of 20 times forecast earnings, it is time to cash in, take profits and look for better opportunities elsewhere. Sell.
cambium: share price today thinks so!
markktm: Great results & stomng performance in the last few days....... how high would these have got on a blue day!!!!! Has anyone seen any analyst forecasts for future share price?????
thebteam: here was a resounding success for one of the West's largest and most successful companies as Rotork's profits jumped almost 20 per cent. The company's share price soared by 12 per cent after the results were announced on Tuesday morning, making it the biggest riser among the UK's largest 250 stock exchange-listed companies. The Bath-based valve maker said the state of the financial markets had boosted demand for its products, which streamline customers' production processes. Sales grew by 22 per cent in 2008 to £320.2 million from £235.7m the year before, helping the company to an operating profit of £74.9m up 19.3 per cent from £55.4m. The strong results defied a widespread slump in the manufacturing industry. Click here! Production in UK manufacturing is expected to fall by 8.6 per cent this year, costing 140,000 jobs according to a report this week from the Engineering Employers' Federation. The manufacturer, which does most of its business in dollars, added that the weak pound also helped its bottom line and said it expected growth to continue this year but at a slower rate due to global market conditions. Chief executive Peter Francis said: "Rotork is not immune to wider economic trends and we may see some slowing in the growth of order intake. However quotation activity and project visibility for medium and long-term projects are up on levels seen one year ago. We started 2009 with an order book at record levels Chief executive Peter Francis "In addition, the group's trading results would be expected to benefit from a continued weakness of sterling against the US dollar and the euro. "Taken together, these factors underpin our confidence in making progress during 2009." The firm, which has 1,700 employees, explained another ingredient in its success was the emphasis it places on research and development, and ongoing investment in its three main business divisions – controls, fluid systems and gears. Mr Francis said the company would continue to pour money into areas of the business where there was potential for further expansion. He said:"Rotork started 2009 with an order book at record levels and a strong balance sheet. We continue to invest in our future and have identified a number of growth opportunities as part of our business development plans." Rotork continued to broaden its worldwide reach in 2008, acquiring Swedish valve actuator manufacturer Remote Controls. The West firm, which has more than 150 bases worldwide, has a third of the global market for electric actuators and said it increased its market share last year even where currency rates were unfavourable. Rotork's profits outstripped analysts' predictions and prompted City watcher Numis Securities to upgrade its prediction for the company's performance next year. Numis analysts said in a note: "Underpinned by the record order book we are upgrading our forecasts for 2009 and 2010 by five per cent and following recent weakness in the share price we move our recommendation to buy."
