Morningstar | ABB Has a Solid Base to Build Its Industry 4.0 Business but Needs to Step Up Its Software Strategy

ABB has an enviable base of robotics and automation customers that puts it in a solid position for Industry 4.0, or Industrial Internet of Things. Both its robotics and industrial controller (used to program equipment) products have leading market share and enjoy loyal customer bases that would be difficult for competitors to capture. Furthermore, ABB’s electrification products division offers some overlap with other customer segments, such as process industries, that could prove useful in cross-selling the automation portfolio. However, growing demand from Industry 4.0 has meant that ABB and ...

ABB Has a Solid Base to Build Its Industry 4.0 Business but Needs to Step Up Its Software Strategy

Wide-moat ABB released preliminary first-quarter results in line with expectations and announced the departure of CEO Ulrich Spiesshofer. A change in guard could be positive for the company, provided the new CEO has greater vision on Industry 4.0 applications. Some activist investors are also pushing for a divestment of the electrification division. While the buildings part of this division is tangential to the core automation portfolio, we see overlap in other customer segments, such as process...

ABB (Hold, TP: SEK200.00) - Continued change

CEO Ulrich Spiesshofer’s departure from ABB overshadowed the in-line Q1 results. While changing management when entering a new strategical phase makes sense, in this case we doubt it will speed up ABB’s ongoing restructuring. We see few potential share price catalysts in 2019, and reiterate our HOLD but have raised our target price to SEK200 (195).

ODDO BHF SECURITIES MORNING NEWS – DETAILED COMMENTS 04/17/2019

The M&A option that KBC is considering in Hungary is, in our view, illuminating as regards the M&A/dividend possibilities offered by a portion of the capital. Our estimates show that this scenario is of limited benefit to the shareholder and bear out our Neutral recommendation on the stock (unchanged target price of € 75.0). Cf. report published today. - ...

La piste M&A envisagée par KBC en Hongrie apporte selon nous un éclairage intéressant sur l’optionalité M&A/dividende sur une partie du capital. Nos estimations en démontrent in fine les limites de son intérêt pour l’actionnaire et nous confortent dans notre opinion Neutre sur le titre (OC inchangé à 75.0 €). Cf. étude publiée ce jour. - ...
