Wouldn't argue but still indicative of the likely impact due to lockdown. A Plant has been struggling for a while as well. Will know in a couple of weeks.

If you look at HSS range of equipment it is small tools for the building trade and diy,that's why their turnover will be down.Having said that they have been around a long time and survived and get a hefty return on capital when it comes to the diy sector.Also they didn't leave the UK.Also look at the map and you can see where most of the Depots are,that says it all.

Hi fennersAgree, but IMO that is unlikely to come to fruition, if at all, until 2021/22, so for the moment this looks pricey. That said it's not the only one.Will be interesting to see what their outlook is when they issue year end/Q4 results next month.HSS reported today that their Q2 (April to date) Rev was down 40% so imagine A Plant will be similar.

Agreed Dave its a surprise that share price has recovered so much. URI up around $142 The other potential explanation is that the US govt finally gets around to the fabled infrastructure spend to try and rescue their economy.

Sorry meant to add, they have already said that underlying profit before tax will be about 5% below last year. So unless I'm missing something, a share price 15% higher than this time last year with a major recession looming suggests to me it's got a bit pricey.

Good day Disco I see you have been awarded a couple of 'thumbs down'. Your 'negative' post, even if true, will be unappreciated by some. It's not just this share price which might be considered "a bit ahead of itself". When the state of economies, debt and redundancies is considered the market would normally be expected to be in a bad state BUT......it's The Fed to the rescue pouring cash into the market as if it were water. Remember they can keep doing so ad infinitum. I think it's fair to say that no one knows how it will eventually end. EDIT The gap down to 2300 remains unfilled so time for a short unless you think it's a breakaway gap.

A gap up to resistance. A gap fill or hold above 2413?

The share price duly returned to the top of the range and managed to pierce it courtesy of the vaccine news from the US but has since dropped back. The rise filled a gap at 2277 from 5-6 March. If more good news is forthcoming it will assist in breaking out to likely resistance at 2413. If not, back to bottom of range at 2100 is probable.

I found this from April - though I guess it can be out of date.... S&P Global Ratings upgraded its long-term issuer credit rating on Ashtead Group PLC to BBB- from BB+ and maintained a stable outlook. The upgrade reflects the rating agency's expectations that a favorable U.S. equipment rental market and increasing market penetration will keep the company's earnings steady, which are estimated to grow by around 12% to 15% in 2020 and 2021. Additionally, Ashtead's conservative financial policy is expected to support its fiscal targets. S&P Global Ratings estimates the company's funds from operations-to-debt ratio at comfortably above 45% and debt-to-EBITDA below 2.0x, in line with its BBB- rating. The agency maintained a stable outlook on anticipation that Ashtead will continue to strengthen its market position in the U.S. and register a strong operating performance for the next 24 months while keeping a balanced capital investment level, positive free operating cash flow and stable EBITDA margins.

Ref Post 57998 It was a retest of previous support at 2111. So where now? It's in a 2100-2300 range so logically it should rise back to 2300 if the trend is to continue. However 'market logic' is not always what we think it should be, more especially with President Trump. A few weeks ago he was bemoaning about a strong $ now he is saying a strong $ is not a bad thing! There is thinking that more QE is on the way from the FED but they may not act until they have a good reason to do so, particularly as the Democrats have suggested another $3 Trillion should be pumped into to the economy now. The share price needs a reason to break up out of the range, QE would probably do it but failing that a fall below support becomes the likely probability.

bracke There was optimism when infrastructure spend was promised 4 years ago, seems now like a forlorn hope.

The share price is back to its recent high of 30 April so it's decision time. Push on to the next target at 2413 or drop back to support at 2111.
