Morningstar | CRH's Solid 1Q Results a Good Start to 2019, but Shares Look Fairly Valued

CRH's companywide sales rose 7% year over year in the first quarter, benefiting from higher volume from milder weather as well as pricing increases. The first quarter is typically subject to seasonal weakness, but the strong start across all three segments bodes well for the full year, barring adverse weather. CRH guided to first-half group EBITDA above EUR 1.5 billion and second-half EBITDA ahead of last year’s EUR 2.2 billion. We forecast roughly EUR 3.8 billion in 2019, so the company's guidance looks achievable to us. At the start of 2019, CRH reorganized from six segments--Europe Heavysi...

ODDO : US infrastructure: looking forward to a tax hike (on fuel)

US Congress is currently discussing how best to continue securing, or even raising, funding for the country's infrastructure. Increasing the federal tax on fuel is one of the few options to receive cross-party support. This tax has not been hiked since 1993, but mindsets are changing with 39 states having already ramped up the local component of this levy in recent years. CRH and HeidelbergCement would be the main beneficiaries. - - >The eternal problem of funding in the fa...

ODDO : Infra US : vivement une hausse des taxes (sur les carburants)

Des discussions au Congrès américain sont actuellement en cours en vue de boucler, voire même d’augmenter, le financement des infrastructures. L’idée d’une hausse de la taxe fédérale sur les carburants reste l’un des rares projets avec un soutien bipartisan. Cette taxe n’a pas été augmentée depuis 1993 mais les mentalités américaines évoluent : 39 Etats ont déjà augmenté la composante locale de cette taxe ces dernières années. CRH et HeidelbergCement seraient les grands gagnants....

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 ...

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. - ...

Contrairement aux rémunérations de CEO, la moyenne des sommes versées aux présidents de conseil d’administration dans les large caps suivies chez Oddo BHF a connu une hausse de 4.9% entre 2013 et 2017. Les disparités entre les sociétés relèvent principalement de contextes nationaux et d’une perception du rôle de président(e) très différents selon les pays, même si la situation actionnariale et sectorielle peut, pour certaines valeurs, avoir une influence.

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...

CRH - AGM 26 April 2019

Item 4: Approve the Remuneration Policy Last year, the remuneration report was only approved by 57.7% of shareholders.  The Company states that they have engaged with shareholders about the new policy, which is submitted for approval. As it is not incorporated in the UK, the Company is not required by law to seek such approval. The changes proposed to the Remuneration Policy strengthen the alignment between pay and performance.  However, there are concerns over the structure of remuneration.  The bonus exceeds guidelines and total incentive pay is potentially excessive.  There are excessive ...

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.
