fenners66: Not really sure about the cancellation of treasury shares. They were purchased in the market a lot cheaper than they are quoted today, so if they were sold back to the market does that add to profit or share premium account? Has the number of shares used in EPS / Dividends changed? The Total voting rights number was already 499 million so it looks like they were being ignored anyway. So no gain on previous position relative to the market. AHT could have generated a huge amount of cash selling them back to the market - yes EPS may have gone down - but what if they used the cash to pay an extra 30p /share dividend for 5 years and had the yield up to 4%, what of the share price then? .............................

ianwwwhite: Hi bracke ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Re Post 53422: “Perhaps you should be asking the question why those who have held 'throughout' have done so. Other than because of lethargy. ie. Fundamentals, TA, etc.” ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I promised to respond to your question from my own experience, other long term holders may have other explanations! * Long term holder? Over the 20 years which I have held AHT there have been 20 buys, and 15 sells, so your assumed ‘lethargy̵7; on our part I would prefer to call ‘masterly inaction’ when it has occurred! My AHT holding has always been part of a larger structured portfolio which includes such diverse investments as Cash Deposits, NSCs, Unit Trusts & OEICs and a few direct company share-holdings which together make up my own ‘Optimal Portfolio’. All 35 AHT transactions have been designed to maximise profits but maintain the risk profile of the portfolio. Within these constraints I have bought in times of weakness and sold to lock in profits and reduce risk when necessary. * Why AHT?: Belief in company’s business model, their markets, the strong management team, and the desire to ‘run your winners, don’t sell good companies’. It seems to me that major instances of AHT price falls, although unsettling, have been attributable in the main to ‘black swan’ factors, economic downturns or accounting fraud which do not necessarily invalidate the business proposition. * Fundamental or Technical Analysis? Both! My longer term AHT hold strategy has been driven by Fundamentals, but short term buys and sells have been aided by my shallow understanding of TA, supplemented by your own valuable contributions, and on occasion the equally valuable contributions of fingers xxd. Thanks to you both! * Finally given the ‘kimono fully open’ nature of my explanation, a word of warning to the unwary reader, none of the above is intended as advice, DYOR! Ian

fenners66: With all this talk of $1 trillion to be spent on infrastructure I thought I would estimate the potential impact : So assuming its planned to be spent over say 10 years = $100 Bn /yr Then of that say 4.4% is spent on plant hire - I looked at 2016 accounts and calculated that % from the UK construction spend since it's lower rental penetration in the US this may be a little high , but penetration is rising and I had a number in the back of my head which was higher so settled on this. AHT have 7% of the US rental market, planned to rise but less leave it for now. Sunbelt's drop through -60% - from the same accounts So that gives $100bn x 4.4% x 7% x 60% = $185m profit Use say $1.23/£ gives us £150m PBT To value that on say the same 10 years x 10 = £1500m to add to the share price based on 500m shares = 300p a share Of course some of that may be built in and you may shorten the infrastructure spend period etc. but I think its a starter for ten......

ianwwwhite: clarky5150 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I think every one of the buy recommends is showing a share price target below the current share price so we may get a slightly less positive view in the coming weeks.. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I think that it is more probable that the 'buy recommendations' are lagging behind the latest results, and following today's AHT analysts presentation, (recommended viewing!) it should follow that the analysts views will be updated and brought into line with the share price action. (Of course, apart from those of Miss E.R. analyst of D.B., who has consistently been a contrarian it seems!) The outlook is definitely positive in my view! (DYOR)

ianwwwhite: bracke, Re 49527 I can but agree. I blame myself, it seems every time we arrange a Mars Bar challenge, the AHT share price plummets just before the critical determination date. Taking into account the feelings and fortunes Of all AHT holders I think it only fair that I refrain from organising any more such competitions. I am therefore open to offers for the AHT competition franchise. In the meantime, can anyone spare the price of a cuppa, guv?
