Keep an eye on Spectris once the tedious US shutdown saga is resolved. Shares of the suppliers of precision instrumentation and controls rallied late to finish only 5p cheaper at 2213p amid growing speculation that it is being stalked by two cash-rich predators willing to pay up to £3.3bn, or £28 a share, to gain control of the former Fairey Group. Emerson Electric of the US, which lost out to France's Schneider Electric in the bid battle for Invensys, is believed to have done its homework on Spectris and is now just waiting for Washington to get its act together before making a move.

Regarding the share price fall after the announcement on the 19th, I listened into the analysts conference call that morning and then attended the AGM later in the day. The information gleaned from those two events helps to explain why there was a bit of a rebound in the price subsequently. A full report of the conference call and the AGM is present on the ShareSoc Members Network here: http://sharesoc.ning.com/forum/topics/the-agm-forum?commentId=6389471%3AComment%3A22382 (but you need to sign up as a free member of ShareSoc to access the document, which you can do from here: www.sharesoc.org/membership.html I don't know why more people don't attend AGMs. I learned quite a lot from doing so in this case. We publish a lot of reports on AGMs as an information resource for members. Roger Lawson, ShareSoc

Following a sharp fall in the share price of instrumentation and controls company Spectris on Friday after its first-quarter trading update, Investec has upgraded the stock from 'hold' to 'buy'. The stock slumped by over 15% from 2,225p on Thursday's close (before the statement) to just 1,880p by Monday's close after the firm reported a decline in sales on Friday due to a deferral of orders and shipment delays. Analyst Michael Blogg said: "Spectris rarely scares investors and, arguably, the reaction to Friday's update has been excessive. The 9.0% revenue decline in Q1 arose from a combination of challenging comparisons with strong trading a year earlier, delivery phasing that was either pre-arranged or caused by slippage into Q2, and a disappointing tendency among customers to conserve cash." Nevertheless, he said: "Spectris does not quantify or guide on quarterly revenues, only the H1:H2 bias, and we sense that it was less surprised at a year-on-year decline in Q1 than we were and more confident of a bounce in Q2, with its knowledge of the contributory elements." Investec has cut its annual earnings forecasts by a precautionary 5.0% on 2.2% lower revenues. The target price has come down to 2,330p, from 2,575p previously due to reduced earnings estimates and the de-rating of peers. The stock rebounded strongly on Tuesday, trading 6.86% higher at 2,009p before the close of trade. BC

Amazing that a company can be all hunky dory on 20th February, and well down a slippery slope two months later without any communication with the market. Management have lost credibility in my book and SXS crossed off the watch list. Good luck to holders.

LONDON (SHARECAST) - Investec has placed its 'hold' recommendation and target price under review for productivity-enhancing instrumentation and controls company Sprectris after the a weak first-quarter performance caused the stock to fall sharply on Friday morning. First-quarter revenues were down 9.0% year-on-year at constant currency, worse than Investec's estimates, mainly due to weaker customer confidence in the near-term outlook which led to a deferral of orders and shipment delays. Analyst Michael Blogg highlighted that the weakness was broad-based, affecting all major regions and reporting segments as well as the majority of end markets. "While we anticipated a deceleration in the first quarter, the slowdown was broader and deeper than expected although we have no reason to believe that the company is losing market share," Blogg said. Spectris is expected to see a £33m drop in annual revenues lost from the Fusion UV business sold in January, but Blogg said that the bottom line should be saved by a £10m cut in annual costs. "Spectris must be expecting to recover some of these lost revenues and while possible/probable, it is hard to put these into forecasts given much still hangs on a 2H improvement in activity. We place our forecasts under review and initially expect to reduce our profit estimates by up to 5.0%." Nevertheless, the underling tone of Investec's research report was largely upbeat, with Blogg saying: "The company has successfully negotiated previous downturns and the cost reduction actions will help to underpin FY13E profits."
