    Long time holder of URI. This stock usually moves up anytime there is a natural disaster. URI benefits fron all the rebuilding of homes and infrastructure. Not the reason i bought this stock. Just my observation from owning URI long term.

    URI. Well run company. Hoping for a dip so I can buy it back. Stock often moves independently of company performance.

    URI is cash printing machine. Not to far in the future we will be doing an infrastructure bill.
    Here in Nevada there is a housing shortage due to all the Californians escaping high taxes. Things are good for URI.

    HRI earnings were pretty impressive. Hard to see how URI misses?

    Lots of debt but--low PER, steady upward trend of analyst EPS projections, very strong cash flow. Politics a wild card but would expect biog pork barrel infrastructure spending for a couple of years if the donkeys win in November.

    Value stock in a slow economy near its 52 week high = source of cash.

    Easy beat on earnings. Strong free cash flow for the quarter.

    Who has this as a top holding? It is my 2nd largest behind CVS, bought in Dec then more in early February. Expecting to get out anywhere in the 200s if it has become a long term gain. Just rooting for EPS of 20 in 2019 with any PE over 10 to make me very happy on this holding.

    Nice upward momentum for uri during down day for market. Investors want in for er next week. Uri has a tendency over last 4 quarters at least to beat. Expanding profit and stock buyback should make eps increase nicely and bring in new money. The charts show a cup and handle, spike above 50 dma and coming 50/200 golden cross. We have a real gem in the works

    Look, I'll say what I've said before. Great company, great business plan. I am a customer of theirs. That said, THEY NEED TO PAY A DIVIDEND. These 20 and 30 point swings from week to week show their exposure to even the HINT of a slow down. They need a dividend to dull this bouncing as well as pay people (like me!) to wait thru the bad times and be rewarded. Thoughts?

    Always intrigues me how two analysts who are supposedly looking at the same facts can be at such polar opposites. Jefferies upgrade this morning to $165 while UBS downgrades to $118. They will probably have good quarterly numbers but the fixation will be on the full year and future outlook. I'm long but not surprised if they temper expectations due to not knowing where the economy is going right now.

    Earning calls are not usually positive for URI stock price initially. Stock is performing like it did a year ago. Many people have owned the stock along time and they want to take some profits. I think we will be up over 170. This year and probably even higher.

    $11.0 BILLION in debt. $60M in cash. Approx. $600M a year in interest expenses. No debt maturities in the near term which seems to be the best thing you can say about their current financial situation. A lot of debt and hardly any cash. Anyone know what kind of discount the bonds are trading at???

    URI has formed a head and shoulders pattern. The question now is whether it will go lower like the typical result of a head and shoulders pattern. Volume is very low, so nothing is guaranteed, but if it does, we could see stock price dive down 105.

    The good news is that should this happen, a buying opportunity occurs when the price moves back up above the 111 neckline, and the target price could then go to 148.
