The Palfinger (WKN: 919964) share does not benefit from the very good half-year figures, it seems to lose -1. 7% and is currently at €26. Since the a lot of €32 in 03, it has lost -17%. Is this decline justified? And what does that mean for investors?
After the strong first one fourth, the second one fourth was also very good. Overall, the best sales and earnings figures in the company’s history were achieved in the first half of the year.
Sales improved by 16. 9% to €1. 21 years of age thousand. Growth in The united states was particularly strong. To become able to serve the us market better, a new headquarters is created in Schaumburg (US state of Illinois). However, the success is also based on other factors such as a good product mix and higher sales prices.
The wages situation improved disproportionately. Operating EBIT rose by 38. 7% to €111. 3 million, resulting in an EBIT border of 9. 2%. This goes along to an improvement of 1. 5 percentage points in comparison to the same period of the prior year. Group earnings exploded by 61. 5% to €63. 3 million.
The Austrian company is also confident for the second half of the year, thanks to the high order backlog. Accordingly, an annual turnover of 2. 4 thousand euros should be achieved. A more cautious figure of €200 million is expected for EBIT.
By 2027, sales should be €3 thousand and the EBIT border should then be 10%. In my view, this is a conservative predict.
In the half-year report, the Management Board describes the expectations as follows:
Contrary to the background of a strong first half of the year and our order backlog, we are aiming for sales of €2. 4 thousand and an EBIT of €200 million for the full year 2023, despite the macroeconomic and geopolitical questions.
Order intake declined
The crane and hoist manufacturer’s products are very dependent on the economy, especially the construction industry. Cooling is expected here. It’s already had a direct effect on newly arriving orders in the EMEA market.
In order to compensate for the decline here, increased investments are increasingly being manufactured in The united states. A further dynamic length of business is expected there.
How is the price drop to be assessed?
The decline of around -17% since 03 is due to the lagging construction sector and not to business development. The heading downward order development in the EMEA market is overestimated here, this is offset by the development in other markets. Nevertheless, it leads to a poor attitude among market participants.
From my point of view, the decline should be viewed positively, as it created a more favorable starting point. Overall, I expect higher prices, my first goal is 30 €. Whether the increase will continue beyond that depends heavily on the development of the construction industry in Europe.
The multi-year chart ensures that the stock is extremely volatile. This development is likely to continue, so it is important to regularly realize higher price gains.
My conclusion: I am positive at the moment and expect prices to grab. However, investors should take advantage of the movement.
