Dutch broker Amstgeld cut is recommendation for Dutch shipbuilding and engineering group IHC Caland
to "Underperformer" from "Neutral". Amstgeld said it expected the company to show a "gap" in 2001 profits, as no major floating production and storage unit orders were recorded in the second half of 2000.
Although the company will profit from a renewed surge in the oil and gas sector, shares will be hit by the disappointing 2001 situation, Amstgeld said in a note to investors. – (Reuters)
