Broad wood- Disappointing US growth hence the fall. Still a growth story but just not as fast.

- Plumbing and heating products group Ferguson announced a $500m share buyback programme as revenue grew 6% in the fiscal third quarter. 'Given our strong financial position, and in line with our capital allocation policy, we are initiating a $500 million share buy back programme which we expect to complete over the next 12 months,' the company said. For the 3 months to 30 April, trading profit rose 2.3% to $359m and revenue increased 6.2% to $5.27bn. Gross margins continued to improve, up 20 basis points to 29.5% and operating costs were well controlled, the company said. The US business, which accounted for the bulk of overall growth, grew revenue 3.3% on an organic basis with acquisitions contributing a further 5.1%. In line with its guidance at the half year, the company saw the overall market environment moderated to low growth. The company expected trading profit to meet analysts' consensus for 2019 of about $1,585m (ranging from $1,570m to $1,597m). 'Cash generation continued to be excellent and our balance sheet remains strong. We will continue to invest organically in our businesses supplemented by bolt-on acquisitions in our core operations, the company said.

Results were today, punished for having a slowdown in growth, still attractive, despite all.

Results tomorrow. I have a lovely warm feeling for this share, but should I have sold out at £66? It has made some good money for me in the last 7 years.

I just found this board today (I follows others on ADVFN), and am surprised to see such low activity for a FTSE-100 share; perhaps it's not enough of a 'household name'... or are there other FERG topics in parallel with this one? Either way, I haven't held this share before, though have long known it's name/business. I was doing a DivYield% based sift of the FTSE-100 and it came up as meriting a closer look. The financials, in general, look pretty good, so I might consider adding this to my portfolio. Does anyone else who holds this, or has recently run the fins/ratings/results etc have a current feel for whether it merits buying? Thx

This is looking like good value. Is there likely to be any downturn in US plumbing supplies sales in the near future? I'm thinking the recent drop is more about a correction in overall market and to an extent ferg itself. Thinking about buying....

Happy with these results. - Ferguson said Tuesday trading profit rose 17.1% in the fiscal third quarter of the year, from the same period a year ago as revenue jumped 10.2%. For the 3 months to 30 April, trading profit rose 17.1% to $356m, revenue was 10.2% ahead of last year at $5.1bn, while net debt was slashed to $260m from $1.47bn following the sale of Stark Group for about $1.2bn. Revenue growth was largely driven by strong US performance more than offsetting weakness in the UK. US revenue rose 11.5% to $4.11bn at constant exchange rates, while UK revenue fell 10.9% to $629m. The company blamed the weakness in the UK on the closure of branches and the exit of the wholesale business towards the end of the first half. Following shareholder approval on 23 May, the company confirmed that it plans to move ahead with a special dividend of $4 per share, equivalent to about $1bn -- slated for 29 June. 'The US continued to grow strongly with organic revenue growth of 10.6% in the quarter. Growth was broadly based across all US regions, supported by good market conditions,' said John Martin, Group Chief Executive. 'The fourth quarter has started well with organic revenue growth in line with the third quarter.'

As a result and looking at the effect of the annual dividend allowance of 2k,I have been been busy today swapping a quantity from trading account to isa.

Yes I'm in, broadwood. Hope that doesn't put you off. Recommended in Telegraph a while back. Happy so far. As long as it doesn't drop close to my in point, I'll hang on for the special Divi in October.

There seem not to be a thread - so I've created one. Any other holders out there?

FERG arose out of a name change - previously Wolseley. It is 90% US based and has been performing well. Donald's tax cuts have helped.
