Director dealings: Synthomer director ups stake

(Sharecast News) - Synthomer revealed on Tuesday that non-executive director Alexander Catto had purchased 184,400 ordinary shares in the FTSE 250-listed chemicals group.
Catto, who joined Synthomer all the way back in 1981, acquired the shares in two separate transactions on 9 August at an average price of 294.17p per share, for a total value of £542,443.94.

Analysts at Berenberg reiterated their 'buy' rating on Synthomer last week following the group's "robust" second-quarter results.

Berenberg praised Synthomer for its "pleasingly uneventful" first-half results in what it labelled a "difficult period" for the chemicals sector.

"Shares are now well into their fifth year of continued improvement in PBT, and the valuation would imply a magnitude of downgrades that are simply not materialising," said Berenberg.

As of 1630 BST, Synthomer shares had picked up 2.71% to 298p.
