Tend to see that lag quite often between the larger and mid caps versus the smaller caps. The liquidity naturally plays a part. Some tentative early buying here. It looks like Berenberg have a wedge to offload at 79p. Have to see if the buying picks up for a possible move higher.

Plenty of bullish moves out there in these interest rate sensitive shares. The issue I have got is I don't know who is still going to warn on profits. Haven't seen shares react well to the warnings so it is all still intricate out there.

Still, it is nice to see positive moves, and if the buying picks up here or elsewhere, happy to have a go and jump on board any short term momentum.

All imo

The share price, in theory, reflects the NPV of earnings over many years ahead.
The current lack of brick demand is a short term problem.
The likely longer term political future of the UK will contain a lot of demand for bricks!
This is a classic buying opportunity as some sellers take a myopic view.
Buy and hold. A value stock.

Given Forts pain was in the brick department and they don't see an improvement and especially since they state brick despatches running 2009 levels. Couple that with MBH yet to report and couple that with a lot of MBH bricks being specialist, and not exclusively mainstream structural, so will be the last to slow down and last to recover

Obviously the read across from FORT hitting this today, but seems slightly unfair that this has fallen more than FORT itself! MBH has much stronger balance sheet with net cash and trading seems a bit more resilient too (at least based on the relatively upbeat outlook statement at the last interims).

Lots to go looking at Travis perkins read across. Building trade is starting to see huge deflation and shrinking margins. Double whammy for MBH, energy hedges set to be stupidly high too. MBH could post record losses. I hope it's got good banking relationships.

I guess it's a relief the share price didn't crash. Perhaps the next set of accounts won't look so pretty?

Good solid performance. Increased dividend. Focus on pricing and input costs. Benefit of diverse markets and close customer relationships.
I'm happy with this and await a turn round in the building industry in a couple of years time and a soaring share price. Need for patience.
Posted at 17/8/2023 19:02 by tole Brick Holdings (LON:MBH) – Results Due Soon Offer Buying OpportunityWith its Interim Results to end June due to be announced on Tuesday 5th September, now may well be a good time to take another look at this brickmaking company.Capitalised at around £85m, this company is not only the UK's largest specialist brick manufacturer but it is also the fourth largest brick maker in the country.Established in 1997, the Haywards Heath-based company produces over 122m clay bricks and pavers each year.Operating at the premium end of the market, the company currently owns most of the UK's premium manufacturing brick brands.It has seven market leading brands: Blockleys, Carlton, FabSpeed, Freshfield Lane, Michelmersh, and Hathern Terra Cotta.These divisions operate within a fully integrated business, combining the production of premium, precision-made bricks, pavers, special shaped bricks, bespoke Terra Cotta products and prefabricated brick components.The group also includes New Acres, a landfill operator, and seeks to develop future landfill and development opportunities on ancillary land assets.In the AGM Trading Update issued on 18th May the group stated that it had made a robust start to 2023, and combined with its balanced forward order book, it remains on track to meet full-year expectations.It continued to add to its quality forward order book with resilient order intake for its broad product portfolio from the group's loyal customer base and distributor relationships across its end markets, whilst production volumes have continued in line with expectations.The construction sector as a whole has obviously been impacted by higher interest rates tempering demand, however the company offset such effects by appropriate portfolio pricing to maintain an end market spread in its forward order book drawn from the social and specification housing, RMI, new build and commercial sectors. Analyst James Wood at Canaccord Genuity Capital Markets still rates the company as a Buy, fixing a Price Objective of 180p on the shares.His estimates for the current year to end December are for sales to have risen to £83.5m (£68.4m), while fractionally edging its adjusted pre-tax profits to £12.8m (£12.5m) for the period, leaving earnings at 10.4p (10.6p). while paying out an unchanged dividend of 4.3p per share.Wood sees a gently better year in 2024, with £85.7m revenues, £13.4m profits, 10.7p earnings and a 4.5p dividend.Those estimates put the shares out on a 35%-40% discount to its sector peers.That looks unjustified considering its robust control and management of costs.Last night the group's shares closed at 88p, still some way off my Target Price, however the quality of this group deserves a far better rating than it has currently, my price aim remains totally firm.(Profile 27.03.2023 @ 91p set a Target Price of 115p)

I think the MBH share price has suffered from an understandable but unwarranted reaction to the large increases in GAS prices.

It's understandable because brick making is energy intensive.

However MBH have:
1) previously stated that they have hedged forward on gas prices
2) this time they state "Careful management of input costs on a risk based approach, with energy costs continuing to be hedged in volatile markets as appropriate"
3) "Portfolio price increase implemented on 1 July 2022 to mitigate
ongoing elevated inflation rates"

So I think it is unwarranted. It is a well managed company with a premium product and fairly wealthy customer base. I think it has a great future beyond the short term energy crisis which it seems to be navigating well.

For those interested in questioning the company about its GAS prices the company states:
"The Company will be hosting an online presentation to retail investors on Thursday 8(th) September at 3pm. Those wishing to join the presentation are requested to register via the following link: Meeting Registration (hxxps:// ."

I think the cloud over the MBH share price is the extent to which it can raise prices to recoup the massive increase in its energy costs once the forward buying is exhausted.
I reckon it needs a 25% price increase next year to maintain margins. That should be possible with determination.
