This bodes well for BRCK which is due to release results next week. BRCK already stated in trading update that their June 2020 revenue is 83% of June 2019 which is similar to the message from FORT.

volumes are back to 90%, but share price is still nearly half its peak..so can see a strong recovery from here, especially if they can now get volumes back to where they were

Yes, long way to go recovery wise, though that is the opportunity, but quite encouraging.

Pretty robust performance all things considered. Management has also taken the opportunity to cut some costs and restructure. While some of that is specific to positioning themselves for future fallout for COVID, I get the impression that a useful proportion will be efficiency improvements that they have had the time to consider and implement due to the cessation of most of normal business. Still, 225 headcount reduction from a total of 1,900 is quite severe, perhaps some of that will return when business is normalised...

Buying FORT really is all about the charts for me as the underlying fundamentals as a recovery play are good (especially given the re-financing). Soit's a question of timing. Charts are looking okay to me. Whether it's a 3 month or a 2 year, all the vital signs are positive. A bit more volume would be nice.

Looks like those large trades earlier have cleared a bit of a stock here.

Also sold at around 340p, but started buying backi in too early. Still, only 12% under water here which feels OK providing we get a proper bounce next year...

I'm with you boys. You're not in this room alone. Holding for the recovery which will come... If the world ends then who will give a monkeys about share prices anyway ;-)

Bonsoir Thrump. I find it difficult to disagree with much of what you say/post. Selling half my holding at 3.35ish after the Boris bounce in December seems like a very good choice... I'll look forward to some positive posts, as and when they're deserved. Take care yourself, happen bump into you one market day in Pontorson… (about 10 miles from my little stone hovel. A la prochaine. d.

Bonjour Damanko - I guess I do appear to be a little grim reaper esc, however like most posts mine are subjective and it really depends on how the recipient reads or interprets them. For example the above post is perhaps a little more positive about Ibstock than it is Forterra. Generally I think my posts albeit not to everyone taste have been quite accurate in their content and most of what I have tabled has come to fruition. I gave my humble opinion about waiting for the 1/2 year results to be published - I would say this isn't particularly bad advice. I mentioned a few months ago that I thought the share price may bottom out at this point. From therein the share price may improve (again putting a positive spin on the situation). That said I do look forward to writing more positive posts when the time arises during these unprecedented times. Nonetheless its certainly food for thought - In the meantime take care Regards T

Thrump - have a think about my question: Have you ever posted a positive post...? Just a thought, and regards. d

Forterra results will follow soon - I think Ibstock is a much better managed company

Ibstock H1 out today. Operational gearing has led to a big loss, but current trading is not too bad.

Personally I would wait for the 1/2 year results to be published - I suspect these will not make for good reading and as a result could adversely affect the share price further.

Sentiment beaten down enough here to allow a bounce? Price is miles off pre-C19 highs as well as an enormous 22% off the recent placing price of 195p. You don't often see that in this market, it's clearly bad but I just wonder if it is too bearish now in terms of a short term play. Taken a few at 153p. Stop at just under 150p if the market still has some bears to sell out.

The Bison precast factory at swadlincote was never designed for residential properties, the ability was available but on a much smaller scale. It was purely designed for commercial properties,as we have all seen in the past ten years government policies always lean towards house building with no consideration for local schools hospitals or doctor's surgery's. This has been more telling during the recent pandemic. Don't get me wrong, it's ok to build new housing as long as infrastructure runs alongside it. I'm sure you'll agree that this is sadly not the case nationwide.

Thrumptasious, I guess it's always plain with hindsight, but at the time of that purchase the world looked a very different place, and growth was being pursued. They have now swiftly got to grips with the world we are currently in and would seem set to make it through and survive the bad times, they didn't just bury their heads in the sand. I said "well run" because they got on and did the necessary, although it doesn't hide the Bison error. My guess is that the building industry is going to have a hard time for quite some while. The only contact I have in new build is someone I know who for at least the past decade has been providing cleaning services to a number of building companies. His people go and do the final clean up and presentation before the keys are handed over to the first owners. That work is now about 20% of the level of this time last year. Luckily for his business, care homes have become a big source of income, as hotels and restaurants have hit the buffers.

Word on the street is that there is a shortage of brick and pavers. That is always good news for brick pricing. The high brick prices led to the rapid increases in ebitda for the 2 major brick businesses in 2014/2015, followed by their buy outs and subsequent IPOs.

Bison was always a difficult business - and had been for sale for quite some time.

It's nice to see Forterra CEO Stephen Harrison's siblings capitalising on the lower share price last Friday - they purchased their shares at a really good price. In fact it appears that most of the BOD had a dabble on the 02nd July - I don't recall seeing any RNS distributed for a number of these transactions. They probably just got in before the 1/2 year closed period approaches Stay safe everyone
