We have increased our forecasts for adjusted profits and EPS by 5% for 2017 and by 3% for 2018 and 2019, following Bodycote’s stronger than anticipated Q4 performance. Our adjusted operating profit estimate of £124.5m for 2017 is in line with updated guidance, ie towards the top of the previous market range. Our 2018 forecast assumes organic sales growth of 3.9% vs. a tough 2017 comparative, but offers potential for further upgrades given the supportive industrial backdrop. Meanwhile the group’s

Bodycote has signed a long term outsourcing agreement with Doncasters Group to provide HIP and heat treatment services in the UK. As part of the agreement thermal treatment assets, including a HIP vessel, and c.20 employees at the Doncasters site in Wales transfer to Bodycote. This will provide helpful additional HIP capacity in the UK, although we do not expect the agreement to have a material impact on our revenue and profit forecasts.

Bodycote reported strong, broadly-based sales growth for H1 17, growth which accelerated within the period. Margin also advanced, leading to a 26% rise in adjusted PBT.

We have increased our low end PBT forecasts by 14% for 2017 and 15% for 2018 and also increased our target price from 690p to 995p. We believe prospects remain attractive for Bodycote.

Whether we know it or not, advanced materials are a core component in the everyday life of the everyday person. They are the key material in items we often disregard, such as printer inks and lotions, to objects which defy the laws of gravity like the Airbus A380 and London’s Shard. Furthermore, these materials are not only essential to many objects and structures, but, due to their superior qualities, are the key to the advancement of many industries. One such example is the use of carbon fibre

In our second edition of “Trend spotting” we note how in the last three weeks the defensive rotation trend has gathered pace and further evidence has emerged of the “relative fading” in the UK economy. However we now see early signs of the “risk on” trend starting to reassert itself in equity markets and we look at small cap laggards plus European exposure as ways to play this.

AFC has signed an agreement with another leading UK construction/infrastructure player, this time in Kier Group. We believe this further endorses our long term thesis that AFC will play an active role in encouraging the transition away from diesel-fuelled temporary power solutions. We believe its technology could help the sector make clear strides towards a net zero future, which has to commence now if they are to reach this target by 2045.

The shares now trade on 24.3x FY2022E earnings, versus a peer group trading on a blended 24.9x. Judges' shares more than regained their composure in early 2022, before events in Ukraine and continued Covid concerns (notably China) weighed on sentiment. As a result, some treading of water is likely in our view. But given the strength of the business (we believe earnings risk is towards the upside) and balance sheet, the quality of earnings and the company's continued ability to execute deals on s
