The outlook is brighter for Synthomer
The company should benefit from capacity expansion and a deal to boost its position in UK and Europe

Yes, I'm in this one too.
Naked Trader felt this could add £1 by winter.
I also see 2020 being strong.

Where's the next support if it drops further from here? Just noticed Robbie Burns in this - or was as he publishes his stop levels too. I'm tempted to try £5k.

Berenberg lowers target price on Synthomer

Analysts at Berenberg reiterated their 'buy' rating on speciality chemicals maker Synthomer on Thursday following the group's "robust" second-quarter results.

Berenberg praised Synthomer for its "pleasingly uneventful" first-half results in what it labelled a "difficult period" for the chemicals sector.

"Shares are now well into their fifth year of continued improvement in PBT, and the valuation would imply a magnitude of downgrades that are simply not materialising," said Berenberg.

The German bank said Synthomer's adjusted pre-tax profits of £70.0m appeared to have been "broadly in line with expectations" and highlighted that "robust margins" in nitrile latex seemed to have offset the impact of recent insolvencies in the paper industry, a key user of styrene-butadiene.

However, the broker lowered its target price on the group's shares to 360.0p from its previous 470.0p mark on the back of Synthomer's recently announced rights issue, higher pensions liability and lower estimates for its core business.

Their lower estimates for the company's sales and earnings mainly reflected the purchase of Omnova and assumed a 1 December transaction close.

The analysts "substantially" reduced their margin and volume estimates for Synthomer's styrene-butadiene rubber latex business to reflect the ongoing weakness in the paper industry and also trimmed their volumes forecasts for the coatings-orientated functional solutions segment, with the net underlying downgrade equating to roughly 4% of underlying earnings.

Nonetheless, said Berenberg: "This pales into insignificance compared with some of the cuts to heftier estimates for industrial chemicals and is clearly at odds with robust, synergy-driven earnings growth and a single-digit P/E."

You need to look at the details rather than the headline. Yes some parts of the business have faced challenges but part of the reason seems to be down to the sale of their interest in the groups Dubai operations and the Malaysian rubber and resins production line closures in 2018. The difference in operating profit looks to be mainly down to special items so overall the results don't look as bad as feared in my view.

Hi. I'm wondering about getting into SYNT in a small way after results tomorrow (despite warnings to the contrary, above!). I notice that the borrowing limit has been raised to 1.5 billion at recent Extraordinary Gen Meeting. Anyone know the reason for this??
Cheers.

Maybe those who took up the 5.5million shares in rights issue rump placing yesterday at 302.9p may have had a nod and a wink re the interims ? ;-)

I am afraid SYNT intensively issued new shares in such a rush before interims because the trading is bad.
