bracke, I agree about the different markets, but I think there is also a quality of management issue, we tend to take for granted AHTs ability to achieve superb results quarter after quarter, but SDY & URI would seem to indicate that it is more difficult than it looks..... long may it continue. In the meantime sounds like a well known trader who posts regularly on this board has made a bit of a killing out of AHTs gyrations, well done if that is the case!ianwwwhite

ian Something like 95% of AHT's earnings come from the USA. As far as I am aware none of SPD's do. To-days up and down is all about the Greek Farce. The volatility is excellent for day trading.......provided you get it correct but even if you get it incorrect odds are it will still give a good result.bracke

Whoops! Was it something I said? Since posting the Speedy info, AHT after a decent start this morning seems to have taken a dive, back to par notwithstanding the recent upbeat results and forward statements. URI is also down 3% at present. Oh what a fickle market!ianwwwhite

Disappointing trading update from Speedy Hire today (-32.5%): ----------------------------------------------------------------- Speedy, the UK's leading tools, equipment and plant hire services company, operating across the construction, infrastructure and industrial markets, today issues a trading update following a slower than expected start to the current financial year ending 31 March 2016 (FY2016). A Board-initiated review identified the following factors which contributed to the poor revenue performance: -- A lack of available equipment during the network optimisation programme -- A focus on strategic accounts at the expense of SME customers -- Poor customer service caused by disruption during the implementation of a new IT and MI system Whilst core hire trading across strategic accounts remains strong, without an improvement in revenue trend, and ahead of any delivery of the remedial programmes, the result for FY2016 will be materially below the Board's expectations for FY2016 and the reported result for FY2015. ---------------------------------------------------------------- Although Speedy Hire and Ashtead are not directly comparable, this does underline the strength of Ashteads performance and management when you contrast their recent results.ianwwwhite

AHT reported figures up to April 15 but because URI had commented on a "soft May" Geoff Drabble was asked at anylsts briefing if AHT had seen a slow down. It was spelt out that trade was still strong up to mid June 15.james97

Unless I'm mistaken HSS had poor trading for their Q2, in particular months April and May. Not aware that AHT have reported on trade for May 15 yet?.DDdiscodave4

Can't see HSS trading statement having any relavence at all to AHT, particularly as AHT has already commented on the months in question. AHT just down with the market which for some reason is still obsessed with Greece.james97

Good day rescuer Nice to read from you again. You do appear to have a penchant for the weak and sickly when it comes to share selection. Doing good works is one thing but you need to remember that charity begins at home.bracke

Thanks Bracke...fairly confident it will reach the highs again, but also fairly confident the gaps will be filled....just a matter of guessing which will come first.lairddavid

I trust you have all noticed that I have not mentioned 'gaps'. The Therapy appears to be working.bracke

JCB has won one of its biggest single orders ever after securing a deal worth over £50m from hire firm A-Plant, part of FTSE 100 firm Ashtead Group. A-Plant is buying more than 1,550 JCB machines, taking the total number of machines it has bought from JCB over the last 25 years to over 10,000broadwood

Nice bounce off the 200 day SMA but left a nasty gap at £11.00 for a potential revisit.dealer1972

Strange why we drop on a slow month at URI, yet when URI increase 2% yesterday and 2% today...we still manage to fall.lairddavid
