Throw CSR into the mix, maybe one or two others and you have the perfect set-up for some overdue M&A.

Might explain why someone has their thumb on the price.

BLD is a stock that has not really recovered from the big virus induced sell off.
After spending most of last year moving between 5 and 5,50, it plunged below 2 bucks in the big sell off.
At todays price of 2.50, it is still barely half of where it was lat year.
The Vic govt has announced a 2.5 billion construction blitz to get the economy going (or to line the pockets of theCFMEU and ultimately the ALP).
Either way, this should be good for the likes of BLD.
I would suggest that NSW and to a lesser extent the other states may well follow suit.
Have taken a small introductory parcel just in case.

USG have recently partnered up with Boral in NZ for drywall distribution. Not like the Americans wanting to play second fiddle for long. Expect a buy out of dry wall at least but probably the whole shebang. When it happens FBU is going to be smashed. Their drywall operations is their cashcow in NZ.

This will have implications for S&P/ASX 200 (Index:^AXJO) (ASX:XJO) stocks. Those with large US dollar exposure will benefit from the weak exchange rate and they include the Boral Limited (ASX: BLD) share price and RESMED/IDR UNRESTR (ASX: RMD) share price, just to name a few.

On the flipside, those who sell locally and have US dollar costs could be disadvantaged. These include retailers like Premier Investments Limited (ASX: PMV) – although they probably have more to worry about than the exchange rate – and Coca-Cola Amatil Ltd (ASX: CCL).

is this the main reason for BLD to rise last few weeks??? unsure.gif

QUOTE
In an investor briefing this morning building materials group Boral says the infrastructure market continues to be “strong” but it is looking for a “strong June to finish the year”.

While Boral refrained from issuing any new earnings guidance until August, it said demand is shifting from supplying residential housing projects to infrastructure.

Still it noted south-east Queensland and NSW residential was softening but Victorian infrastructure projects are strengthening. Overall, concrete volumes continue to be softer relative to prior year, it added.

It says capital expenditure should reduce going forward while earnings from its land holdings, particularly as disused quarries are converted, remain a feature of the business including adding around $30 million in financial 2019.
- stronger but for how much longer? Though infrastructure has scale and predictability.

Obviously the market thinks that BLD will benefit greatly from the non change in Government.
Upward momentum confirmed.
Not only holding that 5 handle, but gone right thru it.

Next stop looking for that 7 handle from September last year.

Touched 5 handle this morning.
Been a gradual rise since March.
Added to my small position to make it a medium position.
Bit of a gamble I know, it may not hold above 5, but willing to take a small risk.

Up another 2% today.
Getting close to that 5..
Have no idea why it is trending up, but heck, I'll take it.

Boral slowly making a bit of a comeback.
A close above the 5 handle would be a nice indicator.
