LBO, I am unimpressed by your stab at pop-physcology.However, I am surprised that you actually engaged the brain before posting (rather than the usual cut and paste).
Don't read it if you don't want to. Thats your right but others have the right to post factual information (as opposed to just idiotic subjective and factless comments) So perhaps its you who should "get a life" or maybe you should just move to Iran! CRH; US new home sales down again in May US new home sales decreased by 0.6% mom in May to an annualised pace of 342k (versus consensus of 360k), from a downwardly revised reading of 344k in April (previously 352k). While this remains in the 330k and 360k range we have seen for the last six months, the mom decline is somewhat disappointing and at this level new home sales are 75% below the 2005 peak. Somewhat encouragingly, the months supply fell from 10.4 to 10.2, but remains well above the long term average of 6. The US housing market is clearly showing signs of stability (albeit at a very low level), however, with increasing unemployment, tight credit markets and record foreclosures, it would appear that a sustained recovery remains some way off. We estimate that approximately a quarter of CRH's EBITDA in the US are to the residential sector. Spending cuts enable CRH to maintain cash-flow levels
11:45 Once again market heavyweight CRH put pressure on the Iseq. Although there was heavy trading in the cement stock, it drifted down by 2.3 per cent to close at €16.55.
Government 'winding down' roadworks Up to 10,000 jobs will be lost in the construction industry over the coming year because of a slowdown in road building, contractors claimed today. The Civil Engineering Contractors Association (CECA) accused the Government of effectively winding down the programme for new national and secondary routes.
Hi Djderry....ive purchased two batches of crh over the last month. Excellent company...delighted to be on board. I like the company and their global presence, particulalry in the emerging markets..aka...China.
23:06 the impact a weak dollar might have on the group's full-year profits. Estimates vary as much as 2pc, with Goodbody stating it could take 4pc from US earnings and Davy rowing in with a figure of 2pc.
LBO Are you the only poster on this site? I think we shall see a steady recovery in the price of CRH over the next two years. IMO a good time to get in.
US recession 'not over yet' A man looks over job adverts in Riverside, California. There were signs last week that unemployment may have bottomed out While the US economy is showing signs of stabilising from a recession that started in December 2007, it's "way too early" to say the contraction is over, said the head of the group that officially makes the call. GDP estimated on a monthly basis "had a trough earlier this year, but it is way too early to say that it is a true trough rather than a pause in a longer decline," said Robert Hall, head of the National Bureau of Economic Research's Business Cycle Dating Committee. Among the top indicators the group uses is payrolls, according to its Web site. The US lost 345,000 jobs in May, the smallest decrease in eight months, the Labor Department Figures on existing-home sales, consumer confidence and manufacturing have pointed to a slowing in the pace of the slump.
22:54 CRH, was down 4.5 per cent at €16.78. Investors sold the stock after its smaller British rival, Wolseley, reported an 80 per cent fall in profits. The British company had profits of £17 million sterling on the back of a £3.6 billion turnover, indicating that margins in the sector are under pressure. Also data yesterday from the US that showed the housing market there remained under pressure
Agree S M, you seem to be alone on this thread. I'm probably a bit too overweight in CRH but when a few earnings enhancing aquisitions are announced they'll be flying imho. Plenty in the war chest.
11:51 With the US$ reaching $1.40 last week the impact of adverse currency movements moves back up the agenda again for CRH. If such a rate were to persist for the remainder of the year, US profits (c.48% of group profits) would be translated at an average exchange rate of $1.36. Our forecasts assume a rate of $1.25, so assuming $1.36 would impact FY09 earnings by circa 4% to 132c, which compares to current forecasts of 138c.
15:23 Shares in CRH fell by 16c to E18.06. A report from Davy Research today said that the global cement market is not out of the woods yet with the slowdown in demand showing little signs of improving soon. Cement down cycles tend to last two to three years, it said. Margins for cement companies in the early 1990s peaked in 1989 at about 16pc and fell for three years to 10pc. However, it took ten years to recover to previous peak levels. "In this cycle, top-line growth did not go negative until Q1 2008 despite negative EBITA growth in Q4 2007 (when margins cracked). Earnings downgrades for consensus numbers did not begin until Q3 2008. We do not expect earnings to trough until 2010 and think that it is still too early to buy cement names".
These are a great recovery share for 2010 at €18
ISEQ plunges as CRH loses 7pc
ISEQ down as CRH shares plummet
The AGM of CRH takes place in Dublin this morning. CRH is a very well managed company and is well placed to take advantage of the recovery when it gets underway in the US and elsewhere.
Weather to worsen CRH profits fall
