Morningstar | Regional Outlooks Appear to Be Improving for CRH, but Shares Are Fairly Valued

In 2018, CRH's EBITDA rose 7% over the prior year to nearly EUR 3.4 billion. Acquisitions boosted results, as organic EBITDA growth was slower at 3%. Continued stabilization in Europe and strength in the Americas helped offset continued challenges in the company’s Asia businesses, where EBITDA fell 44%. CRH did not provide specific 2019 guidance other than signaling continued progress across all three markets. We forecast 13% EBITDA growth in 2019, with nearly one third stemming from synergy realization at Ash Grove, a Florida cement plant, and other recent acquisitions. The remaining growth ...

Morningstar | CRH's Americas Businesses Continue to Grow While Europe Improves and Asia Stabilizes

CRH operates in six reporting segments: heavyside, lightside, and distribution in Europe; materials and products in the Americas; and Asia. Materials produces building materials, products creates value-added concrete products, and distribution sells building products to contractors, builders, and individuals. Despite customer and product diversity, we think performance is ultimately driven by construction activity as a whole, which itself is determined by the economic health of each segment’s geography. As such, CRH is well positioned for economic recovery across sectors (residential, nonresid...

CRH's Americas Businesses Continue to Grow While Europe Improves and Asia Stabilizes

Through the first nine months of 2018, CRH saw EBITDA rise 8% over the prior year period to EUR 2.5 billion, although three fourths of this growth stemmed from acquisitions. On a like-for-like basis, EBITDA rose just 2%, primarily due to challenging weather conditions in the U.S. and a spike in input costs such as bitumen and energy. The Americas, normally CRH’s profit growth driver, struggled through the first nine months of 2018 as increasing input costs and significant rainfall led to EBITDA ...

CRH : Two strong catalysts!

>Review of 2018 results - EBITDA came in at € 3.37bn, up 7.0% (3% at constant currency and consensus at € 3.358bn). A good cash conversion rate > 70% and cash flow of € 2.4bn in 2018 ahead of the € 2.2bn in 2017 (the group nonetheless recorded a tax on capital gains of € 300m linked to the sale of the distribution business in the US). Net debt increased to € 7.0bn from € 5.8bn in 2017 and compared to the consensus of € 6.8bn (net/EBITDA ratio 2.1x). This increase in ...

ODDO BHF SECURITIES MORNING NEWS – DETAILED COMMENTS 03/01/2019

Unlike CEO pay, the average remuneration paid to the chairs of the boards of directors of the large cap companies covered by ODDO BHF increased by 4.9% between 2013 and 2017. The disparities between companies stem mainly from national contexts and widely differing perceptions of the role of the board chair depending on the countries, though for certain stocks the ownership structure and sector situation may have an influence. Cf. Report published last evening. - ...

ODDO BHF SECURITIES MORNING NEWS – DETAILED COMMENTS 02/08/2019

In the face of macroeconomic turbulence, office and retail real estate investment companies are “safe haven” stocks due to the durability of their dividends and their capacity to create value via their project pipelines. We particularly appreciate stocks which have adapted/clarified their strategies to fit new trends in the market. As such, we confirm our Buy recommendations on Gecina, Klépierre and Carmila and have upgraded Icade and Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield to Buy. Cf. report publi...

Jérôme VINERIER

Analyse court terme - CRH : La reprise est une consolidation.

La tendance de fond est clairement orientée à la baisse. Le MACD est négatif, il confirme cette tendance. La reprise est une consolidation qui va buter sur 26,05 € prochainement. Le prochain objectif est à 23,00 €, puis 21,22 €. Le franchissement de 26,05 € remettrait en cause la suite de la baisse.

Jérôme VINERIER

Short term view - CRH : Rising consolidation.

The background trend is clearly bearish. The negative MACD confirms the trend. The rise is a consolidation that will soon bump against the level at €26.05. The next target is at €23.00, then €21.22. Passing €26.05 would question the continuation of the fall.

Jérôme VINERIER

Analyse court terme - CRH : Les prix baissent.

La tendance de fond est clairement orientée à la baisse. Les prix baissent à nouveau, mais le mouvement est devenu hésitant. Le prochain support est à 23,00 €. La tendance de fond serait remise en cause en cas de franchissement de 26,05 €.

Jérôme VINERIER

Short term view - CRH : Falling prices.

The background trend is clearly bearish. Prices are falling again, but the movement has become hesitant. The next support is at €23.00. The background trend would be questioned should prices rise above €26.05.

Jérôme VINERIER

Medium term view - CRH : The movement goes on.

The trend is bearish. The movement goes on. The next target is at €22.02, then €19.08. Passing €28.70 would question the continuation of the fall.
