    Still own this, been awhile since I've posted, but I do follow results and news. Strong report today. I'd be interested in others opinions.

    HRI announced stock buyback program. HEES should do the same.

    Doubled down on HEES and HRI. The equipment rental space is a good one to be in through 2022. Beyond that is anyone’s guess.

    Happy with the move up, until I remember this was $45 just in March. Still no buyback plan.

    44Island: Stock buyback is one way of returning monsy to shareholders that is more tax efficient than increased dividends.
    A good way to do that is by splitting the share into a new common share plus a redemption share. Your basis splits between the two. It can be any split, such as 90% \ 10%, or whatever.
    The redemption share is then bought back for cash on a certain date. You end up with the same fraction of the company as you did before, plus some cash. You have,a capital gain or loss equal to the difference between the redemption price and your redemption share basis.
    The basis in your remaining shares is reduced so if you sell in the future you will have more taxable gain. But who wouldn't prefer to have deferred tax on long term gain rather than be taxed on dividends today.

    HEES does not deserve to be down at $28. This must be due to having expected HEES to benefit from the $1.9T stimulus boondoggle, which is probsbly moot now. However, Hees was doing fine before any stimulus money hit, so the stimulus was unnecessary and that has screwed up the economy. What wss needed wss not an increase in demand but an increase in output by getting people back to work.

    It is a foregone conclusion that the result of the Fed's 2pm meeting will be a 0.75% rate hike so that should be alrready built into the markef. But watch shorts try and say iit' a big surprise!

    Now that's the only medicine the Fed has to prescribe but it it may be the wrong medicine, because this inflation is not caused by too much demand but by too little supply. The cure is in Biden's hands to restart the Keystone pipeline and fracking as a gesture of recognition that their "green only" policybis an economic disaster, and turn on all oil and gas sources in the USA.

    When I look into those zombie eyes however, the chances of getting any such common sense action is nil.

    I know management wants to grow the business...but a STOCK BUYBACK is needed here and now.

    The essence of courage is not that your heart should not quake, http://dataunion.tistory.com/9734 There was a time when we expected nothing of our children but obedience, as opposed to the present, when we expect everything of them but obedience.

    4% current dividend yield.

    Wow, breathtaking drop. Management must respond with special dividend or stock buyback plan.
  • C

    4% dividend, PE=9, PEG= 0.3, 17% growth or more and a market growing at 5.9% / year.

    Why HEES is not on everybody's radar can only be that bulldozer rental is too boring!

    Infrastructure here now. Caterpillar, Deer and many other should see some good moves shortly. HEES has good earnings, and with the money from the sale of it's crane business, profits and stock price WILL set new highs soon. You don't have to be a stock guru to see this coming.
    Bullish

    Is dividend still payable when shares are sold day after pay out date? If so looks like cause of drop today. Thx

    Yahoo's P/E for HEES is 44 which looks more accurate than otherlistings of 52. Even so that looks a bit high for a non-high-flying-tech company. My basis is $31.88 and I don't feel like buying at a price that would raise that significantly. I am holding for the dividend, which I hope they will increase if business continues to improve. Need to see another ER with good bottom line.
