Afternoon all With the US markets flat it will be interesting to see how URI react, they often do better from our results than we do. Good results . Thanks Jeff. and the team. I guess the Final will be Jeff's swan song, which will be loud and sweet. CHeers

No spike to the upside, No return to the sunny uplands. Mater will be disappointed! Looking on the bright side........ the lower gaps have been filled.

Great results, debt always high in capital intensive businesses. Growth is very good. If this dips over the next couple of trading sessions I'll be loading up.

From Sharecast:Among the corporate names scheduled to update markets is US-exposed Ashtead, which is due to publish its third quarter financials. Steve Woolf at Numis estimates the equipment rental company will post a 22% jump in pre-tax profits to reach £250m, alongside a "modest" improvement in operating (EBITDA) margins, although the latter will be limited by the company's continued expansion and investmens in infrastructure. Significantly, Woolf did not anticipate that the company would flag any change in trading conditions in the US construction space, highlighting how the company's business was now more cyclical than during the previous downturn. Long-term infrastructure now accounted for roughly a third of its end-market exposure, up from about 15% at the peak of the last cycle. "We remain positive on the shares, which we believe look oversold."

Will Ashtead Group get a (fork)lift following Tuesday’s third quarter trading statement? While it might have come during a tough December, there was a lot to recommend in the month’s half year results. Revenue rose 19% to £2.25 billion, with a 25% surge in pre-tax profit to £610 million, and a stonking 42% jump in underlying earnings to 98.8p per share. If Ashtead is to continue its 2019 recovery, then Tuesday’s Q3 results need to maintain that double-digit growth posted in the first and second quarters. The performance of its US division, which makes up something like 85% of its total revenue, will be key, with the company susceptible to any stateside economic slowdown.

£:$ falling since Thursday has assisted the 'cause'. Good results tomorrow could give another gap to the upside.......but beware a Brexit Deal which is very likely to send the £:$ up and the share price down.

It's filled the 'down' gaps but created 'up' gaps.

Bigbigdave Thanks for The Times link. An interesting read, although I would question the 'Surrey based' and 'American Rentals' references. Nevertheless as they say any publicity is good publicity....

Q3 Tuesday will hopefully reaffirm above expectations for the year.From AJ Bell, Ashtead results "could really cause a fuss", whatever that means!. From 4m35s onwards: HTTPS://www.youinvest.co.uk/video/breaking-mould-ashtead

The rising £:$ is not doing the share price any favours. I trust none of you are hoping for a 'No Deal Exit' to restore the SP!!

So does it signal a company that has failed its aims and run out of ideas - Home Depot that is.....

Hi fennersTut tut!Guess it's more to do with Home Depot poor Q4 numbers and earnings miss than the buyback.
