"Its also a decent play on the "emerging" market that is the ISEQ" Not really! Its has huge risk to the Dollar and if you wanted to exposure to Ireland then its not a "decent play" as in theory if the Irish companies recovered they will push the ISEQ up and a company like CRH which is more a non Irish play will be reduced in its 33% ISEQ weighting! Remember the Dollar index is falling as Equities rally so if you believe the rally continues then the Dollar constinues to fall. http://www.rte.ie/business/2009/morningrep/download/0910bloxham.pdf Some say 1.60 Euro dollar is possible meaning another 10% decline in the dollar and would wipe a lot of the possible economy recovery and possible eps upside that is pushing CRH higher. http://www.independent.ie/business/stock-exchange-diversification-buffers-general-bearish-market-1882328.html http://www.independent.ie/business/stocks-markets/nama-pricing-warning-hits-banks-1875144.html http://www.independent.ie/business/stocks-markets/construction-heavyweight-crh-drags-market-lower-1870774.html

LBO, Always appreciate your work here and elsewhere. One should balance that contribution with a statement that its reasonable to expect positive growth prospects in the US and the EU, now that the first signs of recovery force their way into economists and investors conciousness. Even some analysts seem to agree. Nice technical situation here too, for the moment. If consolodation began to occur in this sector like its has in the mining and food sectors then CRH, with its wonderful balanced portfolio of businesses across the planet, would have to be an attractive acquisition. Its also a decent play on the "emerging" market that is the ISEQ.

The weak dollar is not a positive http://www.finfacts.com/irelandbusinessnews/publish/article_10008260.shtml Dublin-headquartered CRH, the largest building materials group in the United States, tops the list of big European companies in respect of dollar exposure with US sales accounting for 49% of total revenues, ahead of Europe's biggest drugmaker GlaxoSmithKline which is at 45.4% and DaimlerChrysler at 44.7%

For anyone looking for guidance - the inclusion of CRH in the Euro Stoxx index will result in the purchase of 20million shares within the next month. I think that will have a SIGNIFICANT impact on the share price

http://www.irishtimes.com/business/markets/1224253742096.html The Iseq's biggest company, building materials group, CRH , plunged 3.09 per cent on the back of general weakness amongst its peers, ending the day 54 cent down at €16.96, after hitting lows of €16.80 in earlier trade. CRH accounts for around one third of the index, so any movement in the share price has proportionate impact on the overall market. About 2.5 million of its shares changed hands yesterday. The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly on dividends http://www.independent.ie/business/stocks-markets/the-good-the-bad-and-the-ugly-on-dividends-1876805.html Perhaps the biggest surprise came from CRH which traditionally pays a hefty dividend but which warned in August that it will only decide on any full-year payout in March after taking into account the economic and trading outlook.

Brokers manipulating markets by stealth, says Financial Regulator http://www.tribune.ie/business/news/article/2009/aug/09/brokers-manipulating-markets-by-stealth-says-finan/ Some Dublin stockbrokers are potentially engaging in market manipulation by seeking to place largescale orders for stocks which are then not implemented, the Financial Regulator has concluded after a long investigation http://www.independent.ie/business/irish/recovery-in-uk-and-us-key-to-suppliers-growth-prospects-1862272.html

http://www.fxcentre.com/news.asp?2459020 CRH, meanwhile, saw its stocks fall by 72c to E17.50 after new data showed the US economy's service sector contracted in July at a faster pace than June, heightening concerns about the strength of the recovery. Investor sentiment on both sides of the Atlantic was also hurt by data showing higher-than-expected private-sector job losses in July, which suggested that the US labour market remained persistently weak with the White House warning of worse to come.

http://www.independent.ie/business/irish/crts-co2-beats-latvia-1849283.html BUILDING materials giant CRH spewed out more greenhouse gases last year than either Latvia or Luxembourg. CRH global network of factories and cement plants emitted 13 million tonnes of CO2 last year, according to the company's latest corporate social-responsibility report. The latest yearly EU figures show that Luxembourg emitted 12.9 million tonnes of CO2, while Latvia emitted 12.1 million. Ireland emitted 69.2 million tonnes of CO2. A CRH spokeswoman said: "CRH has made a significant commitment to reducing CO2 emissions by committing to a 15 per cent reduction in specific carbon dioxide cement plant emissions by 2015." http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/ireland/2009/0730/1224251670693.html FUTURE TAXES should be "taxes on pollution" as opposed to taxes on employment, Minister for Energy Eamon Ryan said yesterday. http://www.independent.ie/business/irish/esri-recommends-euro10-per-tonne-carbon-tax-1844760.html ESRI recommends €10 per tonne carbon tax

Em...it's called a recession.Every other building materials group is going through the same thing.Some of us investors understand the business cycle,chose the companies that we think will outperform and invest.Now before you throw in your tiresome barb about Anglo,save your breath.At the end of the month,as always,I will be purchasing more CRH.(In addition to my pension fund which is 50% in Irish equities at present.)

http://www.independent.ie/business/irish/crh-offers-to-buy-back-100m-of-bond-debt-1843396.html http://www.fxcentre.com/news.asp?2453624 For the six months to end of June CRH has already reported that its European Distribution business (which makes up about 13pc of group profits) recorded like for like sales of minus 10pc, resulting in a 30pc decline in profits with DIY being the most robust part of the business. However, the market environment was more difficult for its US Distribution business (4pc of group profits), which has led to a 20pc decline in like for like sales and a breakeven out-turn at the profit level (versus profit of $44m in the first half of 2008). "An area of continuing concern is non-residential markets (as alluded to by Wolseley), a segment which represents almost 40pc of group EBITDA for CRH," said Goodbody Stockbrokers.

http://www.fxcentre.com/news.asp?2444774 Shares in CRH declined by 10c to E16.40 after Davy cut its earnings per share forecast by 23pc for this year and by 15pc for the full year 2010. Most of the downgrade is coming from the Americas Products and Distribution divisions, which performed substantially below the broker's expectations in the first half. The decline in these divisions was due to a rapid deterioration in US non-residential markets in the first half of 2009. According to the outlook, there is no sign of improvement in market conditions and "we have therefore reduced our assumptions for the second half of the year and into 2010". "Europe performed better than expected (we downgraded following the AGM statement in May). However, we have reduced forecasts for the European Materials division given the lack of seasonal pick-up across most of CRH's markets in May and June," said analyst, Barry Dixon
