Morningstar | Smiths Group Announces Welcome Separation of Medical Division; Shares Attractively Valued

Smiths Group's announcement of the separation of its medical division solves one of the three issues that have been weighing on the stock: the uncertain long-term strategic direction for the medical division, recent declines in the medical division's revenue, and the detection division's loss of market share with port customers. Details are still murky, but we take the medical division's separation news as a welcome solution to the strategic question, as it was the division with the greatest long-term challenges to market expansion. The mechanism and the timing of the separation are not yet kn...

Morningstar | Smiths Group is well positioned as a leading player in niche markets.

We think Smiths Group is well positioned as a leading player in niche markets. Its John Crane mechanical seal division provides a base of high-margin, recurring revenue, while Smiths Detection offers good growth opportunities. We also see potential for improving returns in the next couple of years.Global security screening is likely to see robust growth, with demand for detection devices extending beyond traditional locations, such as airports and borders, to more general public venues. Smiths Detection's broad array of products and strong brand puts it in a strong position to capture this gro...

Analyse court terme - SMITHS GROUP PLC : La tendance de fond est clairement orientée à la baisse.

La tendance de fond est clairement orientée à la baisse. Le MACD est négatif, il confirme cette tendance. La reprise est une consolidation qui va buter sur 1 398,30 p prochainement. Le prochain objectif est à 1 278,82 p, puis 1 231,74 p. Le franchissement de 1 487,56 p remettrait en cause la suite de la baisse.

Short term view - SMITHS GROUP PLC : The background trend is clearly bearish.

The background trend is clearly bearish. The negative MACD confirms the trend. The rise is a consolidation that will soon bump against the level at 1,398.30 p. The next target is at 1,278.82 p, then 1,231.74 p. Passing 1,487.56 p would question the continuation of the fall.
