Analyst views | What did you make of aggreko’s trading update?

PAUL JONES | PANMURE GORDON
While margins are weaker at the international power projects arm as expected, we believe the year remains on track. We leave numbers unchanged and reiterate our buy recommendation.

MICHAEL DONNELLY | WESTHOUSE
Aggreko’s trading update prior to entering its close period is in line but reassuring, and we are comfortable leaving our slightly below consensus pre-tax profit forecast of £329.3m unchanged.

CLIVE ROBERTS | S&P CAPITAL IQ RESEARCH
The second quarter slowed down a bit but I think they will make up any lost ground in the second half. Everything seems to be on track and although the share price went down on the news it was very marginal.
