capitalist: Ferguson PLC said Tuesday that pretax profit rose 18% in the first half of fiscal 2021, and it declared a special dividend after unloading its remaining U.K. business. The London-listed, U.S.-focused plumbing-and-heating group made a pretax profit for the six months ended Jan. 31 of $739 million, compared with $628 million a year earlier. Revenue rose to $10.31 billion from $9.89 billion, and trading profit--one of the company's preferred metrics, which strips out exceptional items and amortization of acquired intangible assets--increased to $875 million from $781 million. The board declared an interim dividend of 72.9 cents a share, having suspended last year's interim payment until the final dividend. Following the 308 million pound ($428.2 million) sale in early 2021 of its U.K. Wolseley business, the board also declared a special dividend of 180 cents a share. The company said it has performed well since the beginning of the third quarter, and while the second half outlook is uncertain it expects to generate above-market revenue growth. This is expected to be partially offset by increasing supply chain pressures, transportation costs and reversal of temporary cost-cutting actions, though overall the company is well-positioned, Chief Executive Kevin Murphy said.
imastu pidgitaswell: Funny though - FTSE 100 share, no stamp duty, with that chart - and thread is emptier than (fill in your choice)'s trophy cabinet...
our haven: Look at that trade for half the days trading at a above premium price.Could it be there is a takeover in the air? Someone is building a position for some reason.
our haven: Quarterly update in line with expectations so I would expect no significant movement of the share price this time around. The odd warning in there UK and Canada markets disappointing but they continue to grow in the all important US market.
broadwood: - 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.
scobak: 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.
jrphoenixw2: 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
thebullhunter: 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....
broadwood: 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.'
broadwood: 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.
