    it is good to save money but very wise to invest, cause your money works for you and grows more profit at the same thing while you just sit back and earn 100% income
    Its every moms dream to work from home to save on commuting and to be able to save on childcare and be there for their kids, that's the dream for me as well

    longs that have been invested in Rockwell Automation for many years understand the issue with the supply chain and inflation. I'm not buying more until the fed gets inflation under control, BUT I'm also not selling this top company. HOLD and be happy with the dividend. Management will work through this, even with the challenging circumstances. GLTA

    That’s laughable. $4.6 billions in backlog. Problem is that it’s stuck in backlog because of no chips.

    Name change to Rockwell wanna-be Automation ?
    Even after todays stock plunge, your new P/E ratio is 32.
    Is that warranted ?
    This looks like an overly complex company, that may need to devolve into smaller pieces ?

    You guys do realize Rockwell has a stock buyback in place? 1.5B is set aside. I’m guessing they are buying up some this week.

    Still overvalued at current levels. Fair value is about 18 times TTM earnings IMO

    This really is a great get by Rockwell. "Rockwell Automation Inc (NYSE: ROK) agreed to acquire cloud-native innovative manufacturing platform Plex Systems for $2.22 billion in cash.

    Plex Systems' subscription-based innovative manufacturing platform accelerates customers' digital transformation and improves visibility into end-to-end production systems with easy-to-deploy, cloud-native solutions.

    A combination of cash and short-term and long-term debt will finance the acquisition.

    The acquisition is likely to close in Rockwell's Q4.

    Plex will be part of Rockwell's Software and Control operating segment.

    The acquisition is likely to be immediately accretive to Rockwell's operating margins.

    Plex acquisition is likely to accelerate Rockwell's annual recurring revenue goal achievement by two years.

    Rockwell will welcome over 500 new employees under the arrangement.

    Rockwell held $641.9 million in cash and equivalents as of March 31, 2021. It had $25.6 million in short-term debt and $1.98 billion in long-term debt."

    September 14, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Rockwell Automation, Inc. (NYSE: ROK) and Ansys (NASDAQ: ANSS) today announced that the enhanced Studio 5000 Simulation Interface now connects with Ansys digital twins. This gives automation and process engineers new ways to use simulation to improve the design, deployment, and performance of industrial operations.
    "Connecting the digital and physical worlds with Studio 5000 Simulation Interface creates tremendous value for users," said Shane Emswiler, senior vice president of products, Ansys. "It can help them go from conceptual designs to physical equipment faster and at a lower cost. It can provide useful new insights during production. For instance, users can apply what-if scenarios to understand the impact of changes on a process. They can create virtual sensors to estimate values that are otherwise too expensive or not possible to get today, and they can predict outcomes like failures that hurt the bottom line."
    The Studio 5000 Simulation Interface allows users to connect a digital twin to either an emulated or physical controller. Connecting to an emulated controller can help them optimize production at the design stage before they have a physical controller or equipment. Connecting to a physical controller allows them to create a digital twin of how the equipment should run and compare it against actual performance.

    "We made great strides in the quarter on a number of fronts, despite the continuing effects of COVID and supply chain shortages. Record orders were broad based across all industries and businesses, and continued strategic investments including the Plex acquisition position us very well for the future," said Blake Moret, Chairman and CEO.

    Fiscal 2021 Q4 Financial Results

    Fiscal 2021 fourth quarter sales were $1,807.8 million, up 15.1% compared to $1,570.0 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020. Organic sales increased 12.6%, currency translation increased sales by 1.5%, and acquisitions increased sales by 1.0%.

    Fiscal 2021 fourth quarter net income attributable to Rockwell Automation was $78.5 million or $0.67 per share, compared to $262.7 million or $2.25 per share in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020. The decreases in net income attributable to Rockwell Automation and EPS were primarily due to fair-value adjustments recognized in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021 and fiscal 2020 in connection with our investment in PTC (the "PTC adjustments"). Fiscal 2021 fourth quarter Adjusted EPS was $2.33, up 20.7% compared to $1.93 in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020, primarily due to higher sales and a lower tax rate.

    Pre-tax margin was 0.2% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021, compared to 19.1% in the same period last year. The decrease in pre-tax margin was primarily due to the PTC adjustments.

    Total segment operating margin was 17.9% in the fourth quarter compared to 20.2% a year ago. The decrease in segment operating margin was primarily due to higher planned spend, the reinstatement of incentive compensation, and the reversal of temporary pay actions, partially offset by higher sales. Total segment operating earnings were $323.2 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021, flat compared to $317.9 million in the same period of fiscal 2020.

    Cash flow provided by operating activities in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021 was $204.1 million, compared to $325.8 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020. Free cash flow was $160.4 million compared to $303.8 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020, primarily due to higher working capital.

    Guidance 
    Our guidance reflects strong demand as well as record backlog entering into fiscal year 2022. Supply chain challenges remain dynamic, and our projections assume gradual improvement over the course of the year. 2022 will be a breakout year for Rockwell, with sales expected to exceed $8B as component supply improves. Major new product introductions and recent acquisitions will fuel continued orders growth globally across all industry segments. I'm excited to see our great people bring our strategy to life.
    Bullish
