Shares of the Britain-based manufacturer of industrial flow control equipment Rotork (ROR) rose this morning buoyed by a JPMorgan stock outlook lift to ‘overweight’ from ‘neutral’, as reported by Morningstar.

JPMorgan’s price target is now 395p a share for the company listed on London  Stock Exchange

Shares of the FTSE 250 player opened at 355p and climbed to 364.40p and by mid-morning, they were sitting at 357p. Shares of Rotork have gone up 19.24% in the last 12 months. 

Trade disruption caution

Last month, Germany based investment bank Berenberg lowered its target price on the valves–to-fluid systems manufacturer following a cautious trading update on full-year revenues. Berenberg had clipped their target price from 425p to 410p.

“We anticipate the supply chain disruption currently being experienced will continue at least in the near term,” said Rotork in their 18 November trading update. “As a result, we expect second-half revenue to be similar to the first half with adjusted operating margins slightly ahead of the first half. We anticipate entering 2022 with a record year-end order book.”

Like other industrial players, Rotork had to manage component and raw material shortages. While the worst is thought to be over, the Omicron variant could still cause more pandemic disruption.

Rotork publishes 2021 full-year results on 1 March 2022. Its 2020 revenues came in at £604.54m ($802.53m) and operating profits stood at £122.57m.

The difference between trading assets and CFDs
The main difference between CFD trading and trading assets, such as commodities and stocks, is that you don’t own the underlying asset when you trade on a CFD.
You can still benefit if the market moves in your favour, or make a loss if it moves against you. However, with traditional trading you enter a contract to exchange the legal ownership of the individual shares or the commodities for money, and you own this until you sell it again.
CFDs are leveraged products, which means that you only need to deposit a percentage of the full value of the CFD trade in order to open a position. But with traditional trading, you buy the assets for the full amount. In the UK, there is no stamp duty on CFD trading, but there is when you buy stocks, for example.
CFDs attract overnight costs to hold the trades (unless you use 1-1 leverage), which makes them more suited to short-term trading opportunities. Stocks and commodities are more normally bought and held for longer. You might also pay a broker commission or fees when buying and selling assets direct and you’d need somewhere to store them safely.
