The All Time High is 6572 which was intraday on Wed 08 December 2021. It closed at 6424.

The Highest All Time Close was 6450 on Friday 12 November 2021.

The US Futures held overnight which were higher than when AHT closed.

The share price has moved up and the target is the unfilled gap at 6200 The only unfilled gap thereafter is at 6328.

6328 on the current rise will require more 'good' news from the US or 'Great Expectations' on the run up to results on 18 June.

Just looked at the historical page here - it says AHT 5 year high was 6572.
I did not know it got that high - presumably intra-day

Good day fenners


"one could argue that year after year of dividends increasing could be a reason to buy.True enough todays yield is low - but after a buy and hold ?"
===================================================================================

Yes that may be a good argument but I suggest it would have been far more profitable to sell on the large rises, wait for the fall and buy again i.e. rinse and repeat.

Investors who like to just buy and hold and don't want the bother of buying and selling would have been better off buying a better yielding share.

"Especially if they start increasing it by a more meaningful amount , say 25% p.a."
==================================================================================

Hmmmm - 25% p.a. but it would need to do so for several years to achieve a return that approaches the strategy I suggest above or reaching a reasonable level.

Well Done Bracke, it looks like you called it right again with the AHT rise today after the US ended higher. Thanks

Good day service

The share price has pierced and closed above the top of the ascending channel and wedge but it needs the US Market to remain at the high level it has reached today. If the US drops off later AHT is likely to follow suit tomorrow when it opens.

Apart from day traders you have to consider if investors are prepared to buy at the current level. The dividend is not an incentive to buy so profit has to come from an increase in the share price

Thanks bracke for your excellent charting as always. Looks like things are lifting off on AHT as I type. Hopefully we'll get another run at 6144 and possibly past it this time

Good day Mr bLooks like the "spike" has already happened on US CPI news.....but looks like a fat finger lol.US CPI as forecast but believe April's rise was 0.1% below what was expected.

The chart is at an interesting juncture. The share price has reached the top of the ascending channel which is also the top of the ascending wedge.

The top of the channel is a likely resistance level and the ascending wedge usually results in a fall BUT; today there is a lot of data from the US and the market is just waiting to leap up or at least spike up. AHT could easily try for 6144 again.

servicewash - Was your observation to do with AHT or PET. i am getting a bit confused.

Looks like the volume has picked up considerably in last half hour which is an important element in a sustained upward movement. Volatility increased significantly from circa 13:30 with a number of lucky buyers snapping up some bargain prices and the price returning to its upward trajectory shortly after. Could this unusual activity be laying the foundation for a move towards a new ATH? The trend remains firmly on track upwards so it looks like there's still plenty of juice left in this move. Any views from the skilled resident chartists?

We have seen it far too often, but have been around long enough not to rise to it. I am far too old to join in the banter. I do sense some desperation in his posts though, which is sad to see if true.

It seems steveberyl on the PET thread fits the archetype deluded fantasist pet shareholder model perfectly.

Yes indeed. Tomorrow or Tuesday could be a bloodbath when the penny drops. It's the rinse, repeat cycle all over again. Seems to be a 5 yearly cycle. "One day Rodders, one day" springs to mind.

palwing32 - seems the gamblers on the PET thread are getting despondent again....
crocodile tears from some who already made a gain and sold out prior to the weekend.
You can see some of the trades.

Given the fact the economy is "officially" back to growth and perhaps we can move on from the media invented cost of living crisis...despite much higher interest rates , I think it was the correct thing to do to raise rates and moderate demand.
Sure there was a supply problem but rather than just wait and let inflation take hold - especially as the unions see their main chance , some inflation and media support to tarnish the incumbent government with extended waiting lists and less money for tax cuts / investment - the BOE had to actually play its part and do something.

I think they are reluctant to reduce rates before the ECB or the FED as they do not want the £ to drop and import higher inflation , oil costs . imports etc.

Stupid thing is we do not have any strategic energy buffer despite more finds in the North Sea as we continue to hammer oil industry with supertax and get rid of oil/carbon zero narrative - so remain beholden to world markets and imported inflation , which means higher interest rates , less investment in manufacturing and a long term worse economy. Virtue signalling our carbon emmissions whilst buying everything from China , where they are building more and more coal fired power stations to support production , then importing across the world with mass emmissions !
