Cheers Broadwood, onwards and upwards, as they say. I was a couple of days late with my £10 by end of August but can't see any reason why the momentum here won't see AHT back above £11 by the end of this month. Shorts are closing all over, eh Bracke?! Topiceltopicel
Panmure Gordon Ashtead Group PLC 02/09/2015 Reiterates Buy Buy 0 1,457.00 1,457.00 917.00 It also benefitted from an upgrade from City broker Charles Stanley, which sent it to 'buy' from 'accumulate'.broadwood
A good day. It has reached the ML (you know what that is). Now comes the 'real' test. 1 There may be some profit taking which should not overly concern. 2 There is a 'chunky' gap to the downside which it may want to fill. 3 There is the probability of resistance at 1000. If it is able to overcome the three factors listed above it should be able to reach the Daily SMA 200 currently at 1090 which would also be close to the UP (you know what that is). If it really has' the wind in its sails' ' the world is your lobster' as Arfur would said but there may still be a retrace. If the wind is short lived then a drop to 945 is possible.bracke
Now we are over the pitch fork we can start on the spoons. Cheers2flatpack
I think Ashtead are probably the reason uri, HSS and speedy had the poor results, Cheers2flatpack
A long way to go before we're back to those highs but its a good start. Industrial equipment hire firm Ashtead was the top FTSE 100 riser today with shares up more than 5 per cent as it reassured investors with strong revenue growth and rising profit at the start of its financial year. The group, which rents out everything from small tools to large diggers and water pumps, said total group revenues soared 26 per cent to £618.6million in its first quarter to the end of July. Pre-tax profit also jumped 23 per cent to £155.4million in the three month period. The results reassured investors, especially after recent poor performances from rivals HSS Hire and Speedy Hire, both of which lowered their profit expectations for the year, partly because of slower demand from the oil and gas industrybroadwood
I have to say with these stunning results, and cheap money about could easily see American Private Equity launch a £15 bid for this Company and still be cheapbigboots

This result really does show how ludicrous the markdown has been. So all ships go up and down on the tide but, in this case, the Chinese sinking ship, as we know, has no relevance to AHT, neither does Greece and a half point rise by the Fed will have little effect either.broadwood
great result. Well done Geoff and Co. Underwhelmed to say the least by the price action. Cheer2flatpack
stunning results, well done Ashteadrescuer
Great results - but will they get ignored in the general "sell everything " mood.james97
Operating profit & EBITDA margins for A Plant have increased by 2% & 3% respectively, whereas Sunbelt's has reduced slightly (1%).Excellent results, only downer for me was reading "oil and gas" too many times!. Lol.DDdiscodave4
Ashtead Group reports a strong first quarter with underlying pre-tax profits of £161m, up 23% at constant exchange rates on the prior year. Underlying EBITDA rose by 25% to £282.7m and underlying operating profits were also up 25% at £180.2m. Other highlights: Highlights · Group rental revenue up 20% · £349m of capital invested in the business (2014: £284m) · Group RoI of 19% (2014: 19%) · Senior debt facility increased to $2.6bn and maturity extended to 2020 at lower cost · Net debt to EBITDA leverage of 1.8 times (2014: 1.9 times) Ashtead's chief executive, Geoff Drabble, said: "The Group delivered another strong quarter with underlying pre-tax profits of £161m, up 23% at constant exchange rates on the prior year. Group RoI was a very healthy 19% and the growth was achieved whilst reducing our leverage to 1.8 times EBITDA. "The strength of the quarter reflects the benefits of another strong execution of a consistent strategy to diversify the markets we serve, both in terms of geography and sector. Sunbelt's 23% rental revenue growth clearly demonstrates the overall health of our broader markets and the benefits of our more transactional business model. "Particularly encouraging is that, after a weather-impacted Spring, our seasonal improvement in demand was very strong, resulting in record levels of physical utilisation in July on a fleet that was 26% larger. As a consequence, we confidently invested £349m in capital expenditure in the period, opened 19 greenfield locations and made one small bolt-on acquisition. We are therefore very much on track to achieve our plans of mid to high teens fleet growth in the US and open 50 new locations in the full year. "We continue to invest and grow responsibly, generating strong returns and maintaining leverage within our stated objectives. With both divisions performing well, strong end markets and our strategy clearly working, we expect full year results to be in line with our expectations and the Board looks forward to the medium term with confidence."broadwood
Off the wall results, 23% growth, far more than the City expected Not too many stars in the market like AHTbigboots
Can't fault that statement.broadwood
(ShareCast News) - British industrial equipment rental company Ashtead Group is expected to report strong first quarter results on Wednesday.The consensus forecast is for £151m pre-tax profit for the three months to July, up from £120m previously.Numis said while there is an "obvious drag from oil and gas exposure" the broker believes there is plenty of demand in other areas such as infrastructure and commercial."We remain positive on the shares and believe the recent period of share price underperformance represents a buying opportunity," said analyst Steve Woolf, giving the group an 'add rating.====================================================DDdiscodave4
