Investors should take advantage of post-Brexit share-price weakness at the electrical and telecommunications giant. The group is internationally diversified, including a major joint venture in the US with Sprint. Improving cash flow means it has the financial firepower to compete with the threat from Amazon. A first-quarter trading update, due next month, could spark upgrades by brokers, so buy now. 365.25p
Shares in the manufacturer of plastic piping systems have gone back up to pre-referendum levels on the back of strong sales figures for the first half of the year. It is generating more sales from repair and maintenance than new-builds, which should insulate it from any post-Brexit downturn. With the shares trading on less than 13 times 2016 earnings, they are "not bad value for a growing business". 281p
Three to sell
Management at the housebuilder is showing signs of caution in the wake of the referendum result. Bovis is focused on housing in the southeast, where skill shortages and rising costs have depressed returns in the past. It's "too soon to forecast the future direction of the market", but other stocks in the sector offer higher yields and a safer bet. Avoid. 813p
Evraz, one of Russia's largest steel producers, has reported a 38% fall in half-year cash profits. The global outlook for steel remains unfavourable as China refuses to reduce excess production capacity. There was a modest rally in steel prices in the second quarter and Evraz's unit costs continue to fall, but any benefit will be outweighed by its substantial debt. 166p
The Sunday Times
Britain's second-biggest tool-hire business went public last year, and the flotation has been a "total disaster". After two profit warnings and the resignation of boss Chris Davies, the shares are now at a third of the level at which they originally floated. HSS blames erratic market conditions, but the company should probably never have gone public. 79p

A German view
Organic sales growth is solid, while it has just acquired US laundry detergent maker Sun Products, allowing it to compete more effectively with rival Procter & Gamble in the world's biggest laundry detergent market. The takeover also means that consumer-orientated businesses will now comprise more than 50% of revenues, making the stock less cyclical and thus even more popular among investors seeking dependable blue-chips.
