|Agree Lauders - this is a solid hold.|
|Good day yesterday! Long may it continue. Would be lovely to see this re-rated now. Been a long term holder and am happy. With fortune I will be even happier over the coming years as don't plan to sell. Those dividends and now specials help things along while we wait.|

|Marshalls hikes dividend as it posts growth in full year profit and revenue
08:06 15 Mar 2017
Marshalls has recommended a supplementary dividend after achieving a "strong performance" in 2016 with a 31% increase in pre-tax profit
Marshalls delivers "significant" profit growth in 2016
Landscaping company Marshalls plc (LON:MSLH) said it has received strong sales and order intake at the start of 2017 as it hiked its dividend and reported an increase in full year profit and revenue.
The group, which manufacturers and supplies the construction of pavements, recommended a final dividend of 5.80p, bringing the total dividend for the year to 8.7p, a 24% increase on 2015’s 7.0p. Marshalls also proposed a supplementary dividend of 3.0p, “given the strong performance of the year”.
Pre-tax profit for the year ended 31 December 2016 rose 31% to £46mln, boosted by an increase in operating margins to 12% from 9.7%.
Revenue rose 3% to £396.9mln, driven by a 10% increase in sales to the domestic end market, which account for 31% of group sales.
Sales to the public sector and commercial end market, which represent 64% of group sales, were broadly in line with the prior year. However, Marshalls said it believes it continues to outperform peers and gain market share in this sector.
"The group has again delivered significant profit growth in 2016 with the underlying indicators remaining supportive in Marshalls' main end markets,” said chief executive Martyn Coffey.
“Marshalls has a strong balance sheet and the group's innovative product range and strong market positions mean it is well placed to deliver continued growth and operational profit improvements as it implements its 2020 Strategy. Sales and order intake have been strong in the first couple of months of 2017.”
The group ended the year with net cash of £5.4mln, compared to debt of £11.5mln the prior year. The return on capital employed rose to 23% from 19%.
Its 2020 Strategy includes achieving growth in underlying earnings (EBITDA), improving return on capital employed, further investment in research and development, focus on increasing profitability of smaller UK businesses and targeting selective bolt-on acquisition opportunities.
|If today's trend is anything to go by so far then news should be OK tomorrow. Let's see where it closes. Perhaps another special dividend on the way? Would be very nice.|
|Results tomorrow. Hopefully Wednesday will be a good day! Then the share price can go up further!|
|Keeping up with "tradition" at MSLH:
Marshalls, the UK’s leading hardlandscaping manufacturer has been awarded Business Superbrands status for 2017. This follows the latest iteration of the long-running annual survey, which has been identifying the UK’s leading business-to-business brands since 2001.
|Good to see some strength at the end of the day. Who knows may be a sign of good news ;-)|
|Hopefully time for this to start falling again.|
|Good to see that Marshalls are still winning a few awards: Http://www.marshalls.co.uk/media/news-article/342
Beating off stiff competition from the likes of Tarmac Cement and Celotex, Marshalls took home awards for both its Future Spaces research project, which identifies the key megatrends which will shape our commercial, public and domestic spaces over the next ten years, and its commercial branding campaign – ‘Get a New Perspective on Paving.’|
|2017 will see this sector turn nasty|
|Hopefully the start of the next leg up after the not "that bad" an update?|

“Commercial sales are broadly in line with the prior year. Based on public indicators we believe we continue to outperform our peers and gain market share,” Marshalls said.
With 11 months of the year gone, the board of Marshalls has gone out on a limb and ventured that it is confident of meeting its full-year expectations.
The underlying indicators have remained positive in Marshalls' main end markets while order intake and revenue growth remains robust and the positive cash generation reported at the half-year has continued, Marshalls said.
I have held MSLH shares for some time now and have done quite well out of them while collecting dividends along the way. I still think they are a long term hold so while the 6% drop on Friday was not nice they should still continue their upward trend over time IMHO.|

Panmure morning note:
the grumpy old men
|Sell on the news by the looks of it. Nothing wrong with the update. A good long term hold this one and I think it should do quite well. Like the fact that potential acquisitions will be highly scrutinized. They will hopefully be earnings enhancing when they arrive!|
|(ShareCast News) - Landscape products group Marshalls said on Friday that it is confident of meeting its expectations for 2016 as it reported a rise in revenue for the 11 months to 30 November.
Revenue grew 3% to £375m, with sales in the domestic end market, which represent around 31% of group sales, up 10% compared with the prior year period.
Marshalls said UK revenue since the half year is up 4% compared with 2015 and was particularly strong in the domestic end market, where sales in the five months to the end of November were 15% higher.
The company said sales to the public sector and commercial end market now represent approximately 64% of its revenue. Commercial sales are broadly in line with the prior year and Marshalls said that based on public indicators, it believes it can continue to outperform its peers and gain market share.
"The board is confident of meeting its 2016 expectations. Alongside this, the underlying indicators have remained positive in Marshalls' main end markets while order intake and revenue growth remains robust and the positive cash generation reported at the half year has continued.
"Management continue to selectively identify and monitor bolt-on acquisitions in line with our 2020 Strategy. These will only be made if they meet our robust appraisal criteria."|

|gonna fall 40p on these drab results indicating slowdown|
|Good to see we breached 300p again. Will we stay here or go higher now? Dividend due beginning of December too so hopefully some strength from now onwards :-)|
|So close to the 300p level. Next week will hopefully be the time to breach it! Meanwhile the wheels keep turning in the background. Latest media piece dated 18th Nov: Http://www.marshalls.co.uk/documents/pressreleases/press-release-13.pdf|
|Looking quite good here recently. Will we make it through 300p again soon? Perhaps some positive news is on its way! I hope so of course being a holder of MSLH shares.|
|SIG looks mainly internal production stuff and more its own market issues to me . Personally I would have thought the weather to date would be good for outside work and so no issues stopping projects using their gear myself.|
|SIG profit warning. MSLH next?|
