Aug 26th 2010 - Edison Investment Research today published a report on Severfield (SFR.L, LSE:SFR, LON:SFR) entitled "Share Gain, Some Pain". In summary, the report says:
Management has called the shape of the downturn pretty well and has been proactive in securing work, which has enhanced its competitive position. This will not translate to a sharp earnings recovery in the short term although mid-cycle potential is arguably much improved. India adds a new dimension and its ramp-up phase will be keenly watched. Overall, SFR has performed creditably in very tough conditions though there is no obvious near-term catalyst to drive share price outperformance.
