Feb 04th 2013 - Edison Investment Research today published a report on RPC (RPC.L, LSE:RPC, LON:RPC) entitled "Business Stability And Potential Gains". In summary, the report says:
Familiar themes in RPC’s Q3 update with a favourable mix and flat volumes, though a degree of polymer lag held profitability just below the comparable period last year. No surprises here and we still expect H2 and FY13 as a whole to be modestly up y-o-y overall. RPC has both internal improvement measures underway and capacity for expansion via acquisition. An undemanding rating and the potential to drive gains in a number of different ways should continue to attract investors.
