bracke: Good day perfido "where do I apply for guru status?" ====================================== One swallow a summer does not make. One does not do anything so vulgar as 'apply' one is invited. With the 4th qtr results due on Tuesday the norm would be 'buy the rumour, sell the result' but not on this occasion, so far. I mentioned the gap at 4908 for a possible fill. It appears to be close. The charts below shows the share price at the next ascending trendline. If it fails to hold and the 4908 gap fills will that stop the fall? 4900 is not a s/r zone, the share price having gaped straight through it on the way up. A support zone at 4900 would have to be established. There is a s/r zone at 4824. AHT 4 HOUR Https:// AHT DAILY Https://
perfido: ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ perfido 5 Jun '21 - 20:13 - 58980 of 58989 Ashtead is beginning to look a bit toppy recently, lower volume and diminishing price range, taking it to the lower threshold of what I recognized as a quasi rising channel..... ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ My comment of 5th June would seem quite prescient, AHT having broken trend, and subsequently fallen from 5200 to close today at 5068 - where do I apply for guru status? It seems that the upward channel which I was watching has been broken, it remains to be seen whether AHT will step back up, or await Tuesdays results for direction. In the meantime US CPI (Inflation) rose to 5% in May, core inflation rose 3.8% year on year, the fastest since 1992...
bracke: Good day perfido Good fortune with STRIX. A nice looking chart, not as meteoric as AHT but not far off. Like AHT it is making new highs. Following a leg up it likes to range for a couple of months before the next leg up. On 1st June it closed above 300 for the first time. It would be surprising if it did not retest 300 which had been a previous resistance level. The RSI suggest it may have difficulty holding above 300 when it first tests it.
bracke: Good day fenners I presume you are looking at London Stock Exchange site. Bring up AHT, scroll done and on LHS 'Last 5 Trades' on RHS 'Show Me More Trades' click on this. New screen. On LHS 'Last 5 Trades' click on this and more options shown.
perfido: Good afternoon bracke, Great minds think alike, but I believe Buffett beat you to it some years ago :-) I think some posters may lose sight of the absolute value of their investment's performance, taking into account both the dividend, if any, and the share price appreciation which in AHTs case is phenomenal. In my view this makes the amount of dividend distributions a more minor consideration. Regarding an investment as a virtual cash dispenser to make up shortfalls in personal income from increasing dividend payments doesn't resonate with me. The overall management of AHT over the period from 1997 when I first invested has been exemplary, and I have no complaints. I also have a different view as to how to handle the natural life cycle of investments, differing from your suggestion of market timing. Terry Smith is worth reading on this. My approach is to take profits regularly to manage risk, and recycle the proceeds into mutual funds, which diversifies the danger over multiple investments, offsetting risk at a possible opportunity cost but not as much as you might think. As always to each his own, but I felt that your post deserved a response. AHT closed +58, up 1.2% at 4810, another great performance, although volume looks to have tailed off ... .
fenners66: Thanks Riley You have not quoted the source of the comments , but assuming these are from AHT.... So given number 4 comes before number 5 , we theoretically should be receiving an additional £1bn+ in planned dividends ! As for deleveraging leaving the company "at the mercy of financial buyers" that is outrageous. It is up to the shareholders to decide when and whom and for how much to sell their shares for. Not for the company to deliberately add a poison pill of debt to discourage anyone from making a fantastic offer to buy the shares! That speaks of self interest from the directors looking to preserve their positions rather than looking after shareholders. Worse the justification that spending £1bn buying the shares will stop an offer materialising for the company... it removes £1bn of the cost of buying the company ! So it counters the inability to load up with more debt. Essentially if they believe the company is undervalued vs. future potential should a bid every materialise that should be spelled out why , then. Part of the defence should be , we are a well run company in a cyclical marketplace that have learned to never over-extend debt, we deliver increasing profits and efficiency and have a long record of delivering increasing shareholder dividends, never forgetting that our owners are stakeholders too and need a reward for ownership.

fenners66: Just watched the lady with her opinion on the second of those videos.... Apart from saying that AHT have outperformed the NASDAQ she did not really say anything. No justification for buying , no price target , she just thinks the share price should go up (everything else being equal). Gotta say that was really poor.... She could have made more of the stats for Bidens infrastructure bill ( though the real infrastructure spend is declining as it becomes obvious its just spending every where ). She should have come up with a number and quoted the 6% (?) value of construction spend that is plant hire. She could have referred to US housing starts growing She should have declared the continued move to hire from owning plant and the % penetration of this behaviour. Hurricane clean ups More detail on how AHT has grown US market share she says 10% (?) but that is up from 6% She could have said they are using record free cash flow to pay down some debt (hope so) That shares have been bought back over recent years and may continue (boo!) That dividends have grown by ...% over the last few years - not enough. That UK business is looking forward to growth again. DB set a price target of £50+ Etc- those are just off the top of my head. What I would say is that there is a lot baked into the share price already
perfido: Hi bracke, Interesting thanks, but everything is relative. (PDF download) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ (As at 30/12/20) Ashtead Group Plc is currently trading at 3,489.00 which is 10.2% above its 50 day moving average price of 3,167.22 and 32.7% above its 200 day moving average price of 2,628.98. AHT:LN is currently trading at its 52-week high price of 3,489.00 and is 168.4% above its 52-week low price of 1,300.00. Over the past 52- weeks, AHT:LN is up 45.4% while on a calendar year-todate basis it is up 44.5%. The Relative Strength Index(RSI) indicator for AHT:LN is currently 73. An RSI value of 70 and above is considered overbought and 30 and below oversold. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Although it may be pleasing to see the 12 month absolute gain between fixed dates, the volatility in that period has been extreme (e.g. low 1,300.00), and at the moment it's RSI indicates that it is overbought. I like AHT and still hold some but only within a diversified (ISA) portfolio where AHT sale proceeds have been re-employed in other fruitful, lower risk, more diversified opportunities. Just saying.... remember a profit is only a profit when it is crystalized DYOR. .
