After the market closed yesterday, diversified engineering and construction group Saunders International announced the pace of contract awards in the first half had been slower.
While this commentary could have an impact on trading on Tuesday morning, Saunders operates in an industry that is known for its lumpy earnings and it has demonstrated in the past an ability to successfully negotiate challenging conditions, even taking the global financial crisis in its stride.

Following four years of strong earnings growth, Breville’s dream run seemed to halt in 2014. BRG had set the bar high, and when expectations weren’t met, BRG was punished. From a peak of just under $10, its share price retreated to circa $6.50.
While full year guidance wasn’t provided at last week’s AGM, with management noting the relative importance of November/December trading, it may pay prospective investors to view the 2015 period as a launching pad, which should see the company position itself for strong medium term growth from its overseas operations.
Looking forward to 2016/17, BRG’s buoyant outlook could see its share price return to the good old days.

A2-rated footwear wholesaler and retailer RCG Corporation (CODE:RCG) has negotiated tough retail conditions better than most other stocks in the consumer discretionary sector.
RCG finally felt the pinch in 2014, with traditionally strong like-for-like sales growth slowing. Despite a blimp in its share price, Skaffold’s Earnings chart for RCG proves its strong and consistent earnings ability.
With steady earnings per share growth forecast to continue in the near to medium term, the company’s recent low of just under $0.60 cents may represent a bottoming in its share price.
