Morningstar | SMIN Updated Forecasts and Estimates from 10 Jul 2019

Our key takeaways from Smiths Group's first-half results are that broadly, the businesses are tracking in line with expectations, at 2% revenue growth with some margin softness from temporary regulatory issues. Medical and detection's growth this year will be back-end loaded as expected. Management's guidance is for at least 2% underlying revenue growth. We are sticking to our 4% growth forecast. However, we suspect greater margin pressure on both of those businesses than we previously thought. All in, we still expect the company to meet our modest forecast of a 10-basis-point margin expansion...

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...

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.
