Nice to know that MSLH were involved in the Bloomberg HQ building materials supply: Https:// Marshalls are proud to have been part of making this building so special by supplying our great British stone products to the project.
Good to see that MSLH have started the news flow on their website again: Marshalls takes a multi-layered, holistic approach to protecting people – Deter, Deflect, Defend. The first of these is achieved through limiting the speed approaching traffic can build up through changes to the layout of the road network, adding traffic calming features such as chicanes and speed bumps and creating pedestrianised areas and buffer zones which demarcate traffic. Then, specialist kerbing systems can be specified to deflect oncoming vehicles back onto the road and away from the public. Finally, architects should consider reinforced landscape furniture such as planters, seating, litter bins, cycle stands and bollards fortified with PAS 68/IWA 14.1 cores. Https://
At last! It has only taken 6 months but MSLH have updated their website news page with five new stories: Https:// The last one was March 12th (superbrands piece) but until yesterday none of the additional five news items were showing, despite their dates. Hopefully they will update the page on a more regular basis now!
Josh White WebFG News 02 Sep, 2018 11:58 Sunday share tips: Marshalls, Midas 'Dogs of the Footsie' marshalls rhinoguard eos bench FTSE 100 7,432.42 16:35:30 31/08/18 -1.11% -83.61 Marshalls 451.20 16:35:06 31/08/18 -1.70% -7.80 FTSE 250 20,689.00 16:19 31/08/18 -0.01% -2.75 FTSE 350 4,157.45 16:19 31/08/18 -0.93% -38.97 FTSE All-Share 4,106.14 16:20 31/08/18 -0.91% -37.51 In the ‘Inside the City’ column for the Sunday Times, Sabah Meddings was looking at Marshalls, saying the paving slab maker has done good business in that field for 130 years now, with its shares reaching a record high last month after reporting a 12% increase in sales and underlying earnings. That sales growth was reportedly driven by homeowners cashing in pensions and putting that towards home improvements, as well as a recent surge in demand for road barriers to protect pedestrians from the threat of vehicle-based terrorism. But it’s not all suburban driveways and council roadworks - Marshalls also has a hand in massive infrastructure projects such as Crossrail in London, and the HS2 high-speed railway. That diversity has helped the firm shine among its listed peers - Travis Perkins, for comparison, has slumped more than 28% since January. Its recent stellar performance - £244.3m turnover in the first half - did not mean Marshalls was immune to bumps along the way, with the ‘Beast from the East’ winter storms keeping home improvers inside and their wallets in their pockets. A 21% rise in sales through June and July, however, showed that it was more than capable of bouncing back. According to chief executive Martin Coffey, the firm was outperforming the Construction Products Association;s own growth figures at the halfway point of the year. The firm also boasted little debt, with borrowing expected to be 0.2x underlying earnings by the end of the year, so long as it does not make any further acquisitions. And there was one more reason for CEO Coffey to smile, according to Meddings, with the company announcing on Thursday that he had made a £345,419 share sale to help a family member buy a property. That followed a £394,097 sale in March, when finance director Jack Clarke sold £226,606, Meddings wrote. Marshalls was currently sitting at a solid price-to-forward earnings ratio of 21.33x, with the shares closing at 451.2p on Friday. That was down 5.1% from its record high of 483.4p on 16 August, when the board declared an 18% increase in the interim dividend. Its competitor Forterra, which Meddings said did not have the same domestic exposure, was trading at a price-to-forward earnings ratio of 11.45x. “While Marshalls says its main customers are the wealthy over-55s, it is not unknown for them to hold on to cash when caution strikes,” Meddings said. “Marshalls appears fully valued compared with its peers, so it would take a brave investor to buy at this price - especially when directors are taking their profits.” Over in the Mail on Sunday, Joanne Hart was back looking at her ‘Dogs of the Footsie’ portfolio for the ‘Midas’ column, noting that while savings rates languished around the 1% mark, the Dogs were boasting average annual income of more than 8%. The ‘Dogs’ is a portfolio of the 10 highest-yielding stocks on the FTSE 100, created for the Midas column. Hart said such high yields usually meant one of three things - the stocks were undervalued in the market, the shares were heading for a fall, or brokers believed there would be a cut to future dividends. The answer as to why these 10 stocks were in such circumstances now depended entirely on who you asked, Hart said. Midas based the Dogs portfolio on a strategy developed by US market watcher Michael O’Higgins, who suggested that investors would see great benefit from buying the highest-yielding shares on the Dow Jones Industrial Average. Hart wrote that for many years, that strategy worked well for Midas, with the value of the portfolio doubling between 2012 and 2017, and shareholders enjoying above-average dividends too. The picture was much more complicated this year, however, with dividends soaring but share prices remaining stubbornly stable.
Just had the opportunity to watch/listen to the Half Year Investor and Analyst presentation and liked what I saw/heard. Encouraging that things seem to be going well & all bases are covered. It would seem that they are flagging another acquisition to take their range to more of a turn-key solution. They admit there are gaps in their service now and would like to be able to provide a complete solution one of these days. Interesting that class II truck drivers are not easy to find and those that look for a job like MSLH as they have new vehicles and can go home at night unlike some other companies who need drivers where night shifts are needed. Overall happy to keep holding. The recording is worth listening/watching: Http:// PS - Also found this link which has a few customer opinions at the bottom. Overall they are positive. The company can't get everything right or make everyone happy but they are apparently doing pretty well: Https://

Read the latest Master Investor Magazine Shares in landscaping products specialist Marshalls (LON:MSLH) shot up by 13.54% to 479.60p (as of 14:15 BST) after the company’s pre-tax profits for the first half of the year grew by 12% to £32.5 million. Management said that revenues had also improved by 12% over the period despite very unfavourable weather conditions. The firm remains confident in meeting its 2018 guidance and believes that its product range and strong market position should ensure long term growth. The board has announced an interim dividend of 4p per share, up from 3.40p last year. Chief Executive Martin Coffey commented that: “The Group continues to outperform the Construction Products Association’s (“CPA”) growth figures, despite ongoing macroeconomic uncertainty. The CPA’s recent Summer Forecast predicts a decrease in UK market volumes of 0.6 per cent in 2018, followed by an increase of 2.3 per cent in 2019, while the underlying indicators in the New Build Housing, Road, Rail and Water Management markets remains supportive. Recent trading has been very strong with both June and July revenues up 21 per cent against the prior year period.”

Well that's what you call a positive reaction to results. Hopefully the good weather will continue for more than the last couple of months. Looking good for the long term IMO, and obviously the market's, at this point.
Frank Prenesti WebFG News 16 Aug, 2018 08:01 16 Aug, 2018 08:01 Marshalls H1 profits bloom, despite 'Beast from the East' marshalls rhinoguard eos bench Marshalls 445.60 08:23:34 16/08/18 5.49% 23.20 FTSE 250 20,393.03 08:23:55 16/08/18 0.36% 72.68 FTSE 350 4,186.56 08:23:55 16/08/18 0.27% 11.17 FTSE All-Share 4,132.95 08:23:55 16/08/18 0.26% 10.71 Interim pre-tax profits at Landscape products group Marshalls rose 12% to £32.5m despite winter's “Beast from the East” storm hitting sales by £9m. Revenue grew by 12% to £244.3m. The group said recent trading has been strong as it continued to experience strong order intake and was on track to meet full year expectations. Operating profit increased to £33m from £29.8m, with operating margins slightly ahead at 13.7% from 13.6%. Underlying profits rose to £41.6m from £36.7m. Basic earnings per share were up 10% to 13.24p and the interim dividend to 4p a share, up 18%. “Revenue in both June and July is up 21 per cent against the prior year period. Encouragingly, despite wider political and economic uncertainty, the underlying indicators remain positive in Marshalls' end markets,” the company said, adding that positive cash generation has continued in the period. Despite the bad weather, domestic market results were in line with the prior year period reflecting strong growth either side of the bad weather period, Marshalls said.
Good to see that MSLH even do their bit to recycle plastics in a constructive way: Https:// This is just one of their recycled plastic products so hopefully they manage quite a lot of raw material, which let's face it, is readily available and should be almost free to acquire! Also good to see that the water management side of the business is in focus: Slow the Flow Calderdale (STFC) is a multi-award winning group of volunteer engineers and water professionals who are committed to mitigating flood risk in the Calder valley. They manage multiple projects but their core activity is to use NFM techniques on the side of the upper Calder valley – initially around the Hardcastle Craggs National Trust property – to hold back the water that flows from the hill tops down into the towns at the foot of the valley. To help us better understand our role in the water management hierarchy, this July the entire Marshalls marketing team will spend 2 days on site with STFC using NFM techniques to reduce the volume of surface water that would otherwise flow down into Hebden Bridge. The town has suffered a series of devastating flood events over the past decade so this work will have a real impact on the town’s resilience, making life better for our colleagues and friends in the local community. Https:// I am sure that the citizens in the Calder valley will be very grateful for any improvements when the rains return! Hopefully MSLH will decide to update their website's news section one of these days. Still no cooperation from Sophie after her return, yet as the above shows there is plenty if news at MSLH's to share, which is not surprising given its size and different business that make the group up. Good range of products on show here too some with MSLH's partner company Escofet: Https:// I finally received my dividend too! Only just under a month overdue! Shocking sub-par performance from my portfolio managers and a letter will be on its way!
Many thanks lozzer69! Not very good service when compared to Selftrade but still way better than my situation. I am STILL waiting and the reason for the delay is "being looked into"! Amazing. I also contacted Sophie at investor relations and asked why MSLH's website newsfeed is not updated more regularly. March 12th was the last update. She said she has been ill and returned recently and will look into it. Hopefully we shall see some new news added shortly. Would be nice.
I got an email on 12July from Hargreaves saying div had been paid in on that day.
Thank you Glaws2! Appreciated.
Lauders - received dividend on 29/6 at Selftrade.
Probably not many readers/followers here but for those with a holding I would be interested in knowing whether you have received your last dividend? If so what date please? I haven't received mine and I think I am being given the runaround! Thanks.
Some news that MSLH could have shared via their website: Https:// When Jack Clarke was hired to become the finance director of building materials company Marshalls four years ago he recognised that despite the group’s strong reputation, there was plenty to be gained from resetting its strategy. Https:// Jaz Vilkhu, Marshalls’ Managing Director of Landscape Protection, argues that the new PAS 170 standard will offer organisations an assured product to secure against criminal threats and accidental impacts for the very first time. Https:// Marshalls was selected to supply Scoutmoor Yorkstone Natural Stone Paving, which is quarried less than 15 miles from the project, and used throughout the town across the Oldham Metrolink project. Together with flags units, Marshalls also supplied a mixture of setts, tactile units, steps and cladded planters in Scoutmoor Yorkstone facilitating a cohesive external landscape in the space. Marshalls also supplied bespoke Prospero Granite planters and seating which were jet cut with detailing representing the textile trade in the local area. Intricate artwork was sandblasted into the surface of the planters, and then painted to give the detail a more prominent finish. A number of yorkstone flags were also inlaid with bronze detailing to give the scheme a premium finish.
Coming back a bit from the recent sell-off and wish there was some news to show why and perhaps allow us to step-up to another level. Staying consistently above 450p would be wonderful. I have contacted MSLH PR to update their website as no news since March which I think is a poor show. Not surprised that my observation has so far been totally ignored. Not even a reply to say thanks for your observation and as a shareholder we will address the lack of news. Nobody at the company can say they have had NO news to report for the last 3 and a bit months. Especially one the size of MSLH and with so many parts to it!
Nice to see the designs and work being carried out on a weekly basis here: Https:// Love some of the before and after landscaping etc... Edit - Never realized MSLH offered this service: Http://
Marshalls said 42% of households with income over £50,000 were planning a drive or garden project in the next year. Construction market growth is uncertain at between 0.2 and 1.7% in the next two years, while housing, the largest sector by value, is forecast to grow by 3% in 2018 and 2% in 2019. HS2 and rail are also growth sectors. Https:// Still happy to hold.
Trading update yesterday and not one post here! Wow. Anyway, the business looks very sound to me and if it were not for the British weather the news would have been very strong indeed. Can't see any reason to sell and move on and it is still a hold for me.
Found the video where Jim Mellon mentioned MSLH at last! Https:// Although I watched the whole video and like Jim the relevant part starts at 23.10 minutes/seconds in and is VERY brief. Still I agree with him and would ;-) A good gardening holding (security too which was not mentioned) for the ageing populations around the world. UK focused of course, but also other parts of the world like US.
A nice rise towards the end of the day. Been a bit quiet at MSLH recently. Apparently Jim Mellon mentioned MSLH as one to hold not too long ago but I can't find it in writing anywhere. No worries. I intend to stick around anyway!
Preview of MSLH's trade stand at this years RHS Chelsea Flower Show: Https:// Will hopefully reward MSLH with even more orders/PR.
I assume that MSLH is being hit by the weather and concerns about loss of business due to snow? When the snow melts their drainage products may prove useful.
More news from the 12th March on the MSLH website too: MARSHALLS NAMED A 2018 BUSINESS SUPERBRAND “To be named as a Business Superbrand is a huge honour, and it is testament to the hard work and commitment from our 2,500 strong workforce. “We are thrilled to have been awarded this accolade for the ninth consecutive year, and would like to thank all those who voted.” The overall top 20 Business Superbrands for 2018 are: 1.

Dividends Marshalls has strong cash generation and a robust balance sheet which underpins a progressive dividend policy aimed at achieving up to 2 times dividend cover over the business cycle. The Board is recommending a final dividend of 6.80 pence (2016: 5.80 pence) per share which, together with the interim dividend of 3.40 pence (2016: 2.90 pence) per share, makes a total ordinary dividend for the year of 10.20 pence (2016: 8.70 pence) per share, an increase of 17 per cent. Given another strong performance in the year, the Board is also recommending a supplementary dividend of 4.00 pence per share for 2017 (2016: 3.00 pence). As previously, this supplementary dividend is discretionary and non-recurring. The payment of a supplementary dividend recognises the Board's objective of maintaining an efficient and prudent capital structure and providing increased returns for shareholders whilst at the same time retaining flexibility for capital and other investment opportunities. Taken together, the ordinary and supplementary dividends represent an aggregate distribution for the year of 14.20 pence per share (2016: 11.70 pence). Subject to shareholders' approval at the Annual General Meeting on 9 May 2018, the final ordinary dividend of 6.80 pence per ordinary share and the supplementary dividend of 4.00 pence per share will be paid on 29 June 2018 to shareholders on the register at 8 June 2018. Outlook The Group has again delivered strong profit growth year-on-year. Good progress has been made in the year executing the 2020 Strategy, notably the acquisition of CPM, and the ongoing self help programme to drive organic growth is progressing well. The underlying drivers have remained positive in our main end markets and our sales and order intake have been strong in the first two months of 2018.
