Always good to see "materially ahead" in a trading statement. The market certainly liked it. Let's hope we get some follow up buying this week.

Thanks guys. Not sure why this didn't show up as rns on the sites I checked. Including financial Times. 2018? No concerns for me. The BoD have sensibly established a reputation for under promising and significantly over delivering. I feel sure Simon Thompson at Investors chronicle will give the share price a further boost. Onwards and upwards....

I think that cautious statement over 2018 figures .i.e. No uplift in forecast,will hold back price at least until actual figures come out at year end. But very positive news.

You pays your money as they say.Is that an up to date Numis? finnCap reiterates Buy 398p target. From Motley fool hTtp://www.fool.co.uk/investing/2017/08/25/1-mega-cap-stock-and-1-small-cap-id-buy-and-hold-for-the-long-term/ Henry Boot (LSE: BOOT) raised its expectations for 2017 as early as its AGM in May. Today, it reported a good first-half performance and said momentum has continued into the second half, in line with the upgraded expectations. First-half operating profit was 8% ahead of the same period last year and earnings per share (EPS) increased 10%, with the company seeing “higher levels of activity across all business segments.” Boot’s activities range from land promotion, property investment and development to plant and tool hire and operating the A69 toll road. As such, most of its businesses are exposed to economic cycles. However, it said today: “Whilst we remain mindful of a continued degree of economic and political uncertainty, sentiment amongst our customers and clients remains positive.” Conservatively managed and cheap Boot maintains a robust balance sheet to weather periods of economic turbulence. Net debt at 30 June stood at £62m, giving conservative net gearing of 26%, and management said it expects land and property receipts in the second half to reduce debt and gearing further still by the year-end. The share price is little changed at 305p on the back of today’s results, valuing this FTSE SmallCap firm at £403m. Analysts are forecasting EPS of around 25p for the full-year, 16% ahead of last year’s 21.5p. This results in a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 12.2 and a price-to-earnings growth (PEG) ratio of 0.76. On the dividend front, the board lifted the interim by 12% today, suggesting a full-year payout of above 7.8p and a yield of 2.6%. The low P/E, a PEG below the fair-value marker of one, a dividend covered more than three times by earnings and conservative management of the business combine to make this a stock I’d buy and hold for the long term.

@retsius I know what you mean. Seems like a decent trading result, but just totally blah in terms of response. The longer term does seem promising however, so fingers cross we do see some movement in the coming weeks.

Good results. Rather surprised by the total lack of interest by the market. Shares usually respond later in the day for some reason,but not getting over excited at the moment. R.

htTp://www.building.co.uk/news/henry-boot-marches-ahead-of-expectations/5087891.article Henry Boot marches ahead of expectations 25 May 2017 | By Hamish Champ Property trading and development activity levels deemed to be “very encouraging” Property developer Henry Boot has delivered an upbeat assessment of trading, which includes a prediction that its final results for 2017 will be “comfortably ahead” of expectations. In a statement to shareholders at its AGM today the firm said property trading and development activity levels since the beginning of the year had been “very encouraging”, including work being done on the former Terry’s chocolate factory in York, while the UK election had not created the sort of uncertainty which might impact its operation. Its Hallam Land Management business had seen transactions expecting to complete in 2017 progress as anticipated, with the UK’s major house builders reporting “slightly higher levels of activity and strong demand for new houses”. A number of projects in its property investment and development arm, including the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre, were on track, while its construction business was expected to hit its targets. The integration of Premier Plant Tool Hire & Sales in Leicester, acquired for £2.8m, was progressing well, Henry Boot said, and both the existing and new depots are trading in line with expectations, it added.
