Bracke 'I may sell at breakeven but would obviously prefer a profit' ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Therefore in what way does the buyback scheme impact your very limited ambitions for AHT? It's not going to change no matter how many times you post the same stuff From Q2 results ending 31/10/18 : Completed £425m of original buyback programme, with a total of £675m anticipated to be spent under December 2017 programme. Minimum of £500m to be spent on buybacks in 2019/20

Good day ian You have asked me the same question previously. I will give you the same answer I gave previously. I bought on the expectations (not great, merely reasonable) of an imminent rise providing a reasonable profit in a short interval. It didn't. I may sell at breakeven but would obviously prefer a profit. I will monitor the situation. I reiterate.....Did share buybacks take the share price to £24.61 in September 2018?

bracke, As a matter of interest, were you aware that Ashtead was executing a share buyback plan when you bought AHT shares for 'Mater' in October? If so, how on earth did you overcome your reservations?

Additional 5% growth in eps. Year end circa 46% (PEG only 0.4) eps growth which is then on a par with 2014 when this was on a PE rating of about 18.......raising target price by 20%. Beats £1.05p / share any day of the week IMO:)

Precisely - I could be spending some of that £1.05 a share on sparkling water right now instead of watching the share price go up and down like it has had zero effect.

£500M/475M shares in issue = £1.05 per share. Mater wants her share in cash not buybacks.

Sharecast news today:Analysts at JPMorgan Cazenove reiterated their 'overweight' rating on equipment rental company Ashtead on Tuesday due to its "undervalued and under-appreciated cash story". JPMorgan said the debate on Ashtead seemed to largely revolve around the "right multiple" for the stock at its current point of the cycle. However, the investment bank noted the "right multiple" debate typically only looked at earnings. The US bank cited the sustainability of Ashtead's positive free cash flow despite increasing investment in the business and its potential to generate roughly £1bn worth of free cash in a downturn as key reasons for the rating. Ashtead's "aggressive investment" in the equipment field ahead of the cycle was also highlighted by JPM as having created a situation where incremental capital expenditure requirements and growth rates were "better aligned". JPM stated this meant incremental capex was no longer offsetting Ashtead's positive EBITDA development, creating "sustainable positive free cash flow" as a result. "We believe the flexibility and cash generating capability of the business should be taken into account when assessing through-cycle valuation and provides more protection for the shares in the event of markets slowing," said JPM. JPM felt there was also "upside" to its target price of 2,300p.

Good day fenners Maybe they have to compensate him because it's in his contract but they can then sue him for gross misconduct?

How does Nissan take an $83m hit for the compensation for chairman Carlos Goeen (or however you spell it) ? !! He's been arrested - he must be accused of at least gross misconduct ? So why is there any compensation provision or otherwise ? Just suggests that the corporate trough has gone mad ! Arrested for having a snout in it and rewarded with more ?

Very interesting to read the strategic review on the website. It illustrates the need to adapt and how the company is successfully doing so. 'Overall, our end markets remain good and we continue to execute effectively on our 2021 plans. This means we continue to expect a number of years of double-digit compound growth and strong cash generation. We expect to open another c.60 new locations next year and are excited by the opportunities that lie ahead'. Most will already be familiar with the strategy - and be very comfortable to hold. I suppose perversely, should there be an orderly Brexit the £ will sharply gain hitting Ashford's earnings but we can't have it always.
