The share buyback scheme is coming close to the 10% limit (52,831,110 Shares)agreed in January.

528,311,100 (TOTAL NO. SHARES JAN '22)

Following yesterday's buyback there were 477,464,033 shares remaining.
So only another 1,984,043 shares to go by my reckoning.

Posted at 31/10/2022 06:29 by tole Hire 'materially undervalued', says Peel HuntSpeedy Hire (SDY) may have lost its chief financial officer but Peel Hunt says the equipment hire group remains undervalued given its prospects.Analyst Andrew Nussey retained his 'buy' recommendation and target price of 39p on the stock, which closed up 0.1% at 38.8p on Friday, the day after the resignation of James Bunn, who has left to pursue opportunities in an unrelated sector.'We expect investor focus to remain on Speedy's developing opportunities and its superior positioning and balance sheet strength,' said Nussey.'We look forward to the interims and fresh insight from the new chief executive Dan Evans.'Nussey believes the shares remain 'materially undervalued' on 7.2x March 2023 estimated earnings 'given the potential for through-cycle growth and improving return on capital employed profile'.
Posted at 03/10/2022 18:02 by tole dirt-cheap penny stock set for huge growth and it already pays a dividend!Jabran Khan takes a closer look at this penny stock, which operates in a growth market. Should he buy the shares?Jabran Khan?Published 3 October, 3:55 pm BSTSDYYoung brown woman delighted with what she sees on her screenImage source: Getty ImagesOne penny stock I am considering adding to my holdings is Speedy Hire (LSE:SDY). Let's take a closer look at some fundamentals, as well as recent developments to help me make a decision.Construction equipmentAs an introduction, Speedy Hire is a construction tools and equipment rental and hire business. With over 200 depots across the UK and Ireland, it has over 300,000 itemised assets available for trade and DIY customers.So what's happening with Speedy shares currently? As I write, they're trading for 37p, putting them in penny stock territory. At this time last year, the stock was trading for 59p. This equates to a 37% drop over a 12-month period. Many FTSE stocks have fallen in recent months due to macroeconomic headwinds, coupled with the tragic events in Ukraine.Learn moreThe bull caseLet's look at some of the positives of Speedy shares. To start with, I can see that they are trading at dirt-cheap levels on a price-to-earnings ratio of just nine.In addition to this, Speedy shares would boost my passive income stream through dividend payments. The current dividend yield stands at 5.9%. To provide some context, the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 average yields stand at 3%-4% and 1.9%, respectively. I am conscious that dividends are never guaranteed, however.Next, Speedy has a decent track record of performance. I do understand that past performance is not a guarantee of the future. However, looking back, I can see it has recorded consistent revenue and profit for the past four years. It's recent full-year results were very close to pre-pandemic levels. This is encouraging as the pandemic caused disruption for many firms.Finally, I believe Speedy operates in a burgeoning sector right now. Construction projects and spending is increasing. For example, the UK government is looking to spend more on essential infrastructure. Furthermore, there is a shortfall of new homes in the UK, meaning demand is outstripping supply. Many house builders are working hard to plug this gap. Although I do not profess to be a construction expert, my research tells me that it is more cost-effective to hire tools, rather than buy them. This should help boost Speedy's performance, and level of return.A penny stock with risks & my verdictAll stocks have potential downsides and risks, and Speedy is no different. First off, the current economic volatility could play a part in slowing down infrastructure projects. This could hinder demand for its products, as well as hurt performance and returns. Next, due to inflation, the cost of materials has risen. This means that Speedy may need to hike prices to remain profitable. This could also hurt demand and customer numbers.Overall I like the look of Speedy, as a business, and as a stock to boost my holdings. It has a good profile and presence. The shares look good value for money and would boost my passive income stream. I believe current headwinds could cause shorter term issues. However, I invest for the long term, so would expect to see growth and consistent returns eventually. I will be buying the shares.

I should think the directors are happy with the current share price as they continue the share buy back at an ever increasing to hang onto for the long haul.

Posted at 01/6/2022 17:51 by tole Hire – capital growth on just 8.7 times earnings and a good looking 5.5% yieldBy Mark Watson-Mitchell 01 June 2022 3 mins. to readSpeedy Hire – capital growth on just 8.7 times earnings and a good looking 5.5% yieldLast Monday's final results announcement from Speedy Hire (LON:SDY) reminded me yet again just how cheap its shares are currently.Several times over the last couple of years or so I have commented upon this group and I have no compunction about returning to do so after its latest figures and statement.The businessBased in Newton-le-Willows on Merseyside, the £231m capitalised group is the UK's leading provider of tools and equipment hire services.Its massive range of clients includes market leaders in the UK construction, infrastructure and industrial markets.It supplies large national customers, including 86 of the UK's top 100 contractors.It also deals with local trade and industrial companies across the country, as well as with the general public.In the last year or so it has formalised its partnership with the B&Q stores group, boosting its trade and retail sales through various of its depots, as well as through its website.Speedy itself has some 200 fixed sites across the country, supplementing its own online activities.The company hires out a range of tools and accessories, including access, lighting, survey, lifting, rail, safety equipment and ATEX, plant, site and traffic management, communications, and pipework and engineering equipment; compressors, generators, and pumps; and heating, ventilation, and cooling equipment.It also sells access, lifting, survey, rail, and personal protective and safety equipment; various tools and equipment; and cutting, grinding, and sanding equipment, as well as site supplies.In addition, the company offers partnered, fuel management, testing inspection and certification, advisory/technical, powered access, out of hours, building information modelling, and aviation services, as well as customer service centres, and training services.The group provides a unique industry leading national four-hour delivery promise on its 350 most popular products.It has some 300,000 itemised assets for hire and employs over 3,300 people.The EquityThere are some 510.5m shares in issue.The larger holders include Schroder Investment Management (12.8%), Polar Capital (7.23%), Abrdn Investment Management (6.02%), M&G Investment Management (5.11%), FIL Investment Advisers (UK) (5.09%), Jupiter Asset Management (5.01%), Aberforth Partners (3.98%), Franklin Templeton Fund Management (3.27%), Threadneedle Asset Management (2.77%) and Hargreaves Lansdown Stockbrokers (2.50%).Brokers ViewAnalyst Charlie Campbell, the sector specialist at the group's brokers Liberum Capital, after Monday's announcement, was impressed by the group's strong recovery over the last year or so.For the current year to end March 2023 he estimates £417m sales revenues (£387m), pre-tax profits of £34.3m (£29.6m), earnings of 5.4p (4.1p) and an increased dividend of 2.5p (2.2p) per share.For 2024 and 2025 respectively, he sees sales of £432m and £448m, leading to profits of £37.0m then £39.5m, worth 5.4p then 5.7p in earnings, sufficient to pay 2.6p then 2.8p in dividends per share.Nice steady growth all around.Campbell rates the shares as a 'buy', looking for an 80p price objective.My ViewI really like this little group. It is yet another in my series of 'basic' businesses, never going to set the world alight but where its shares are extremely attractive for capital and income growth.It has a strong balance sheet and very good banking facilities. It is continually updating its fleets and its product ranges, pandering to a growing customer demand.Importantly, it will be gaining in the current and next year as its hire rate pricing is moved higher.It will also benefit very well as its tight management will help to increase its utilisation rates and its margins.As the infrastructure sector grows apace it will be a clear beneficiary of additional business.The B&Q arrangement could also prove to be a winner in due course.At the current 47p share price I consider that this group's shares are ready for another lift upwards.That rates the shares on just 8.7 times current price-to-earnings and yielding a very handsome 5.5%.We did well subsequent to the first Profile on the group in late 2019 then at 52p, they hit 80p within months.I now set a new Target Price of 60p on the shares within the next year.

Here is 1 penny stock primed to benefit from the construction boom!Jabran Khan delves deeper into a penny stock that he believes could benefit from the construction boom, and explains why he likes the shares.Jabran Khan?Published 17 May, 3:46 pm BSTSDYI believe penny stock Speedy Hire (LSE:SDY) could benefit from the rise in demand for construction services here in the UK. Here is why I would add the shares to my holdings.Construction equipment rentalSpeedy Hire is a construction tools and equipment rental business. With over 200 depots across the UK and Ireland, it has over 300,000 itemised assets available for hire.So what is the current state of play with the Speedy Hire share price? As a reminder, a penny stock is one that trades for less than £1. Speedy shares are trading for 49p, as I write. At this time last year, the shares were trading for 75p, which is a 34% drop over a 12-month period.I believe Speedy shares have come under pressure in recent times due to macroeconomic headwinds and the stock market correction. This correction was caused by the geopolitical issues arising in Ukraine currently.A penny stock with risksThe biggest threat towards Speedy's performance and growth, and in turn investor returns, is that of soaring inflation and the rising cost of raw materials. Speedy will see its costs rise, which means increasing its prices. Some businesses have defensive capabilities whereby a price increase would not deter its customers and they would still experience consistent sales. Speedy doesn't have this characteristic, in my opinion. It could lose customers to competitors that are able to offer better value for money.Another issue is that Speedy is an asset-heavy business. It must continuously invest in new and updated equipment that comes out and a significant capital outlay is needed to do this. This outlay could affect any shareholder returns.Why I like Speedy Hire sharesAs mentioned earlier, Speedy could benefit from the construction industry recovering towards pre-pandemic levels. When the pandemic struck, the construction industry was severely affected. Current demand for housing and commercial property is soaring. In fact, demand for homes in the UK is currently outstripping supply.As well as market conditions, Speedy's business model is also beneficial to its own progress, in my opinion. There is a general consensus in the construction community that renting, and not buying tools, is more cost effective. Speedy specialises in renting out its equipment.Speedy shares pay a dividend with a yield close to 4%. This is high for a penny stock, which is enticing. It also recently commenced a share buyback scheme that will reward investors too.Let's take a look at the fundamentals then. Prior to the pandemic, Speedy was able to grow performance in respect of revenue and gross profit. I do understand that past performance is not a guarantee of the future, however.Coming up to date, Speedy's full-year update for the year ending 31 March, released in April, made for positive reading. Revenue is set to increase by 5% compared to 2020 and investment of £70m has also helped secure a lucrative partnership with DIY giant B&Q. Speedy now has a presence in 38 B&Q stores, which will help boost its profile and performance.Speedy Hire is a penny stock I would add to my holdings. I believe it could benefit from market conditions, despite macroeconomic challenges. The shares could be on the cusp of heading upwards in my opinion and I would buy them now before any price increase.
