I think you have a very short or very selective memory! http://www.advfn.com/cmn/fbb/thread.php3?id=9004654&from=2511 http://www.advfn.com/cmn/fbb/thread.php3?id=9004654&from=2840 http://www.advfn.com/cmn/fbb/thread.php3?id=9004654&from=2881 http://www.advfn.com/cmn/fbb/thread.php3?id=9004654&from=2907 http://www.advfn.com/cmn/fbb/thread.php3?id=9004654&from=2959 http://www.advfn.com/cmn/fbb/thread.php3?id=9004654&from=3100 http://www.advfn.com/cmn/fbb/thread.php3?id=9004654&from=3146 http://www.advfn.com/cmn/fbb/thread.php3?id=9004654&from=3297 http://www.advfn.com/cmn/fbb/thread.php3?id=8111361&from=127 And as for "In a downturn all companies suffer! I suggest you look left on a 9 year chart on companies like Tesco, Johnson & Johnson, Colgate and Berkshire!

LBO,I don't want to get into any personal comments,I wish to discuss the co.'s performance.Regarding Anglo,I lost many tens of thousands of euro.I have posted elsewhere that your view was,in hindsight,the correct one.However,this is a thread on CRH.A different company.A different management.A different business model.

15% compounded doubles every five years.As I said,it doesn't work as neatly as that,some years you'll get a lot more,recently,as we know,a lot less.My point is that if you look long term then you'll be well rewarded.

Djderry.....15% would be a very nice return indeed....their return on shareholders equity over the long term runs at about this.... they now also have a nice warchest to buy up struggling competitors.. lovely free cash flow also.......very sound company.

CRH - Hefty profit warning http://www.rte.ie/business/2009/morningrep/download/0707bloxham.pdf http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/6a570c70-6b5d-11de-861d-00144feabdc0.html • CRH issued a tough trading statement this morning, widely expected following the poor weather in the US and Europe, with deteriorating activity levels in non residential and residential, coupled with fx and fuel prices moving against the group. • Operating profit will be c1/3 of the 2008 level. Weaker than expected May and June. EBITDA will be down 40% on H1 2008 (€1.1 billion). Profit before tax will be one third of H1 pretax profit will be €100 million, compared with €600 million in 2008. This is after €75 million restructuring costs and a negative fx move of €20 million. This is ahead of worst case scenario, despite a hefty decline. H2 profitability is set to be lower than H2 2008 but higher than H1 2009 Following from the statement, we expect to have to cut earnings from €1.35 to the low €1.20s after the conference call. This puts the stock on c(f) PER of 12.5 X for 2009,

I think you meant Negative returns from every corporate entity! Its hard to be positive when you look left on the charts of all the ISEQ shares over the last 9 Years! LOL CRH to suspend output at 2 cement plants http://www.fxcentre.com/news.asp?2443657

"You'll double your money over time.I aim for 15% per annum but,of course,the market doesn't work like that.The trick is to be patient,think in years rather than months. It's a very well run company and will continue to prosper" Did you not say that about Anglo Irish bank aswell? And if you look left on the CRH ISEQ chart exactly how long "in years" are you talking? Would since 2000 be long enough? ;) Lets look back at March 2005!!! http://www.tribune.ie/archive/article/2005/mar/06/crh-results-cement-long-term-prospects/ Davy Stockbrokers has the company as a 'strong buy', with a target price of 24. Smith Barney has set a price target of 22, rating it a 'low risk buy'. Goodbody has a 23 price target. "Our view is that there is not going to be a lot of news flow in the next few months that will attract the incremental investors you need, " Eason said. Conclusion: CRH has a habit of coming up with the goods, making it a good longterm buy. The short-term outlook for the share price all depends on what O'Mahony and company have stored up their acquisitive sleeves

It's a very well run company and will continue to prosper.LBO,when I wrote 'more pronounced',I meant that the company sees an increase in the increased profits forecast for the second half of '09.I hope this clarification will suffice.

More pronounced? You mean in the worse sense not better sense! Interesting what they say about Ireland and no matter how its dressed up this is a profit warning. And I do love this new expression the decline is slowing! As was recently said in the Dail who cares if you are sinking fast or slow, YOU ARE STILL SINKING! Some would also say its better to sink fast and get it over with then have to be tortured for longer! http://online.wsj.com/article/BT-CO-20090707-702744.html Irish building materials company CRH PLC Tuesday forecast a 40% drop in first-half earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization due to the recession and difficult trading environment, and said second-half profits will be lower on the year. CRH said in a statement it sees "little or no pick-up" in second-half demand in Ireland

Obviously the macro-economic outlook is challenging.However,the co. is well placed to make further acquisitions near the bottom of the cycle.They indicate that the usually stronger second half will be more pronounced this year.The sea is rough,but the ship is steady! (No Titanic quips,now.)

http://www.fxcentre.com/news.asp?2441544 CRH will issue a trading update on July 7th. In its update in May, management indicated that the first four months of the year had been extremely challenging. "We do not think that there will be much improvement in this outlook," said Davy. CRH fell 20c to E15.65. http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/breaking/2009/0702/breaking73.htm US construction spending fell back in May and was down almost 12 per cent in the first five months of 2009 compared to 2008.

http://www.independent.ie/business/irish/crh-to-benefit-from-us-stimulus-1794624.html CRH shares were 10 per cent lower last week, which means they are currently underperforming the EuroStoxx construction index by about 8 per cent. There was little stock specific news to drive shares lower, other than some weaker-than-expected new home sales data out of the United States.
