Director dealings: Evraz finance chief bails out with shares at record high

Evraz finance director Nikolay Ivanov let go of a batch of shares at the start of the week, just as the shares rose past some of the most aggressive forecasts from analysts.
Ivanov sold his 40,000 shares on Monday for 444p apiece, for a total transaction amount of £177,527.6, the company said in a statement.

Just under a fortnight earlier, the company had reported a 70% jump in full-year consolidated earnings to reach $2.6bn, mostly on the back of an upswing in prices.

In prescient fashion, on 12 February analysts at Goldman Sachs hiked their target price on the company's stock from 300.0p to 430.0p, upgrading their recommendation to a 'buy'.

"We see sustainably high metal spreads in 2018 on synchronized global economic growth, continued policy-induced capacity rationalisation in China and cost-inflation pressure. Inside we update estimates and PTs on higher commodity prices."

Goldman also pointed to the fact that at the time the shares were changing hands at a forward EV/EBITDA multiple of 4.4, for a 25% discount when compared to the company's historical valuation on that metric.
