What to think after temporary power company Aggreko gets bid for?

By Chris Bailey of Financial Orbit | Monday 8 February 2021

Disclosure: I own shares in one or more of the stocks mentioned. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.

Back in November 2018 here, I concluded about temporary power company Aggreko (AGK) that it was worth 30% more than its c.750p share price then.  However, returns in 2019 were reversed in 2020 as the Olympics did not happen and emerging market demand was hit by a bunch of “challenges” as well.  Still – by last month – Aggreko gave a short update which concluded that its cautious £80-100 million profit target for 2020 was likely to be slightly beaten.  And to highlight improving prospects, it saw 2021’s profits to be back to the £170-190 million range.  That is not too shabby for a company trading back in late January at an EV of about £1.7 billion.
