    Thumbs up A few bull.... companies could learn a lot from Mainfreight

    I have always liked Mainfreight and that they are willing to use words such as 'poor' and 'disappointing' up front in their results announcements.

    But as they say the overall result is Satisfactory.

    Quite happy with the result. Not spectacular, but both revenue growth as well as earnings growth a wee bit higher than what my preferred "consensus source" predicted. Sure - Revenue growth of less than 3% is not spectacular, but turning this into a nearly 15% EPS growth is. Add to that a solid balance sheet and a team which never failed to keep the engine going ....

    Happy holder - and dependent on how the markets react might this turn into a good opportunity to accumulate some more.

    Traction in Australia is very good at present due to main competitor Toll having issues with staff motivation. This lack of motivation apparently is so bad that it effects customers relations.
    The result is very noticeable to MFT, in the past MFT had to approach potential new customers to grow. Now potential new customers approach MFT.
    This makes life a lot easier. Toll is much larger than MFT so a lot of potential customers still to come over.

    I am surprised to see MFT dipping down, I thought it would go the other way

    Trucking lobby were all over Nationals plan for better roads, Labour is feeding rail freight a big juicy bone by diverting billions of dollars from roading and into Rail.

    And there are plenty MFT warehousing staff earning minimum wage...

    What made you think it would go the other way?

    Well my simplistic view was that it is a global company and it will benefit from a lower NZ dollar. Also Craigs have it listed as a potential winner under the new government. But the points raised by hardt make sense as well.

    Looks like Asia & US is the drag...wonder how the slightly reduced 1H result (vs expectations) will impact full year outlook...

    Decline was on decent volumes, but volumes much less now.
    Far below 30 and 60 day MAs but RSI not actually below 20%, so is it going to stop declining?
