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://
bracke: The share price is not being driven by buy and hold share buying but by Algo Trading otherwise known as High Frequency Trading (HFT). It's interesting to view all the trades from opening and observe how the share price is gradually manipulated upward. Until there is any selling pressure from s/holders or from shorters there appears to be nothing to prevent the rise from continuing. AHT P/E 38.80 using EPS 136.3 URI P/E 26.32 using EPS 12.69
bracke: Good day trt You may be correct with your AHT share price forecasts but if you are going to base your forecast on the chart it would be helpful if you stated what you see in the chart that leads to your conclusion. I can see a possible reason for 5400 but no further. I presume you are applying an indicator/s. Perhaps you could post a chart?
bracke: Good day ian It is fair to say that fenners is a little 'miffed' when it comes to share buybacks. However I could 'rattle his cage' and point out that the share price has risen this morning, could this be as a result of the buyback? The share price has risen straight through resistance at 4700 and on to the upper quartile of the PF where it met resistance. It is just above the channel lower trendline. AHT 1 HOUR Https://
bracke: "£75m a qtr for 2 years is £600m Which is a long way short of £1bn" ================================= But..."The Group intends to commence the programme at a run rate of around GBP75m per quarter and to flex this amount." +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 'around' and 'flex this amount'. Plenty of leeway for £1bn. Using an share price of £46 as the price used to buy back shares and using all of the £1bn the total number of shares bought would be 21.7 million which is 4.55% of the shares in issue. All things being equal if the shares were cancelled that would seem to increase the share price from £46 to approx £48. THIS POST IS NOT INTENDED TO RESURRECT THE 'BUYBACK V NO BUYBACK' DEBATE.
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: Good evening bracke Re: post 58524 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I have pondered the usefulness of continuing my TA posts on this site etc ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ My apologies if you found my earlier slightly tongue-in-cheek comment wounding. I think I have mentioned before that I for one find your TA postings a useful part of the wider investment toolkit, and an aid to understanding the likely short term direction of the AHT share price and the optimal timing of a transaction. I understand only too well the difficulty of forecasting future events, after all I forecast Trumps impeachment some two years ago, who would have guessed he could achieve it twice in one presidential term? :-) Do keep up the good (TA) work! Edit: it looks like the price may have attempted to break out of the ascending. 'Wedge' to the upside, the next few days may be interesting.. .
perfido: good day bracke ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ If the buybacks restarted at the current price and the shares were cancelled would that not increase the SP? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Oh that it was so! The share price is a reflection of the investors future hopes and expectations as you know, and sometimes based on fundamentals.. On the balance sheet, a share repurchase would reduce the company’s cash holdings and consequently its total asset base by the amount of cash expended in the buyback. The buyback will simultaneously shrink shareholders' equity on the liabilities side by the same amount. The ultimate value of the buyback depends to a large degree on the stock's future price performance. If a company’s float has contracted by 20% over time, but the share price declines by 50% the buyback has had an adverse impact. (At one point, AHT fell to 1300 during 2020). However given time, the reducing number of shares sharing the company's profits should appreciate in value over time. Given the recent rise in AHT's share price, you might take the view that AHT is overbought and in the short term there is appreciable downside risk. However this is AHT, so anything could happen!

bracke: Thanks perfido It seems that the link shows the chart I am showing on my computer which is not very satisfactory. I will try to find an alternative. fenners An share price usually breaks up or down by the time it has run 2/3 along the wedge, they rarely continue the run straight through the apex. As I posted earlier, during holiday low volume periods the share price is 'played with'. It's easy to manipulate a price when volume is low. The 'true' situation resumes when the holiday period is over. If the share price is to b/out above the upper wedge line it will require more volume unless it can be done during the low volume period. The MACD and RSI are both high and the share price is a considerable way above the Daily SMA50, SMA100 and SMA200. Those indicators suggest a retrace is due at least to the wedge lower line.
bracke: Good day perfido It is possible; although unlikely; that you would qualify for the GOAT but at best it would be 3rd class membership. It has been suggested that the Elliot Wave fraternity aren't so much waving as gesticulating furiously in despair. Your intention to use the term 'trigons' whilst not de rigueur terminology is understandable given your terminological confusion. I of course will continue to use standard terms as required by my standing as an Elite Guru. Looking at the price action rather than triangles, wedges and such like does show that the share price is some way above the Daily SMA200 and SMA100. In addition the Weekly MACD and RSI are stretched. The share price dropped to the Daily SMA100 at the beginning of September and also November. If it repeats these drops in the near future that would take the share price to approx 2900. I appreciate that AHT does tend to do its own thing as I know to my cost but it can't defy gravity for ever. Just for the record I do not currently have a position in AHT.
