Judging by the number of posts on this BB looks as if PI's have been blinkered to the value of this company, what has surprised me is the sale of the Aerosoace Division rather than the Medical which has been rumoured a few times recently.

SMIN looking very weak - presumably down to dollar weakness? Time to top up, or get the hell out?

to answer the question, they have to start raising earnings year after year. they have struggled to do this for 6 years.

Apologies for the old article from The Telegraph (from late Sept) but thought it well worth posting. Smiths Group Stock: 870p -16.5p Questor says Buy What has Smiths got to do to please the market? The engineering conglomerate reported non-cyclical growth in its medical division, Medex, of 31pc; saw sales in its speciality engineering division, which provides materials for the oil and gas industry, rise 16pc; and experienced a 13pc rise in sales in its aerospace division – and still its shares fell. But then that is perhaps not surprising, given the company had to announce a write-down in the carrying value of its investment in TI Automotive from £325m to nil. The total write-down is perhaps a little too keen, but as chief executive Keith Butler-Wheelhouse outlined yesterday, it is prudent to do so given weak market conditions in the US automotive sector. As a result, full-year profits for the year to Aug 5 fell from £271.8m last time to £24.2m this time. But in spite of this, underlying profit – at £492m – was ahead of expectations and the group unveiled £100m of contract wins at the same time as unveiling its results. The outlook for all four of Smiths' operating divisions is strong, benefiting from demand in the aerospace, defence and medical sectors. At last night's price, the shares are trading at 13.6 times earnings for the year to July 2007, which is a small premium to the sector but cheap for a conglomerate-style play of this quality. But the problem is the shares are unlikely to rise significantly unless something dramatic happens. The company is unlikely to announce a large share buyback because the focus is on growth, and it is also less likely than most to be bought and broken up, simply because a four-element conglomerate is a tricky business for any potential buyer. Acquisitions, however, could give the shares a boost but – as TI Automotive shows – they remain unpredictable. That said, Smiths, with 36 years of unbroken dividend growth, is well worth holding.

Good to see that some of the big brokerages are seeing the light. Credit suisse have given an outperform recommendation along with a Buy rec from Panmure. S.

This is the most baffling stock i've ever held. Revenue, pre-tax and operating margins all stronger than forecast and a positive outlook given. It's histori P/E is 877/64.8=13.5x And the market is selling the stock??? Granted there is increased R & D spending, which will eat into cash flow, but all divisions are reporting revenue growth in the teens

And another downgrade MARKET TALK: UBS Cuts Smiths Group Target; Sell 0536 GMT [Dow Jones] UBS cuts Smiths Group (SMIN.LN) target to 820p from 860p, and reiterates its sell rating. Cites higher than expected interest costs at its trading statement, together with a disappointing change in the EBIT mix for the decrease. Believes Smiths may only just generate sufficient cash to pay its dividend in coming years, and warns there many not be any cash flow left to pay down debt. Shares closed at 850.5p. (KHO
