Since the last set of results, at half year, this stock has declined nigh on 45%, clearly markets have become tougher since then and profits will have been impacted with little sign of improvement for some time to come, are these good value or do we continue to decline, that is the question!
If oil goes to $20 per barrell and commodities don't recover for 18 months plus.....
Well I bought some (more) today at 10.17. Hopefully a short term trade. About six months ago we had takeover rumours when the price was £17-£18. How times change

why don't WEIR and AMFW merge ?
The bad news may be priced in here
We have now seen the extent that the fall of oil prices has had on this company. Everyone is now bracing themselves for the impact that mineral extraction, or more to the point, lack of, will have early next year - just look at Glencore. I am not intending to trade in the stock market for quite a while now, but all the cost cutting in place will not compensate for the reliance that Weir has on both oil and mineral extraction.
Yep that's what I figured ...ta
No. might be worth starting to build a few when per hits 8-9, so 680-720p share price ..based on fy eps of 80p. problem is, we are likely to be in recession in the next 12-18 mths, so what price Weir in a bear market, if it's share price doesn't recover in the remaining bull period....could see 300-400p or lower
COnsidering everybody and their uncle is short this one, is there any glimmer of hope what with the gross cutbacks, 12 month lag to any eventual oiler upturn, missed targets and warnings to come etc etc etc
RBC downgrades Weir to 'underperform' Fri 09 October 2015 10:06 | A A A (ShareCast News) - RBC Capital Markets cut Weir to 'underperform' from 'sector perform' and slashed its price target to 1,150p from 1,850p. "Whilst Weir shares would respond quickly to signs of oilfield activity recovering, near term we suspect they might come under pressure," the Canadian bank said. It said the outlook for the oil & gas division is deteriorating and current consensus forecasts are around 10% too high. RBC noted that minerals sales/EBITA declined 8% and 11% respectively organically in the first half, with OEM sales declines offsetting the more resilient aftermarket . It added that since the first half, commodity prices have come under pressure. The bank said the oil & gas division is working hard on its cost base, targeting £55m lower annual costs by end 2015, but only so much can be done in the face of major price and volume declines. It now forecasts 2016 O&G sales/EBITA of £585m/£77m, down from £740m/£110m previously.

Chart now changed APAD - breakout of the down trend and the previous high imo: free stock charts from
Touche CR apad
Today's intra-day chart is very odd as it appears the spike bears no relation to the price of oil. I suppose we are now close to the downtrend line which I expect we will break through sooner or later (need a nudge from the price of oil)
A better place to be long now APAD, imo: free stock charts from But have a stop level too imo. CR
Shell will cut 6,500 jobs and slash its capital spending this year as it seeks to cope with low oil prices. The Dutch giant said on Thursday it was planning for a “prolonged downturn” in the oil industry. It reported second-quarter earnings, on a current cost of supplies basis, of $3.1bn (£2bn), down from $5.1bn last year. It meant earnings per share were down 37pc, Shell said, as excluding identified items, earnings fell from $6.1bn to $3.8bn. In response, Shell said it will further reduce 2015 capital investment to $30bn, down by 20pc from a year ago as it expects the downturn in oil prices to "last for several years."
Competent company. Maintained divvy. Can pay the bills. Knows how to manage a downturn. Let's hope for share price weakness over the summer, but I suspect this puts a floor under the price unless oil weakens significantly. apad
Lots of negative numbers in those results! Still if you look hard enough there are perhaps one or two positives: "First half results in-line with June trading update expectations" Cash from operations up 35% to £202m in 1H and: "we expect a meaningful sequential improvement in our financial performance in the second half of 2015, alongside continued strong cash generation"
Yesterdays RNS was incorrectly interpreted as a profit warning and first thing in the morning, share price dropped by some 70p however later on after the presentation, investors realised that the information was already out some time ago, and the share price picked up. I think the share price will pick up further.
Look out for big drop this morning
Profit warning coming?
after disposals by GE, it will have billions in the bank. It will be looking for good takeover targets. They can easily buy WEIR which will be at a big discounted price at todays price.
Weir Group: Credit Suisse ups target to 2,205p from 1,915p and reiterates outperform.
