Davy hosted its Annual Industrials Conference in New York on Thursday September 5th. Companies attending included CRH, Cemex, HeidelbergCement and LafargeHolcim. Updates were generally reassuring on trading, suggesting little risk to full year guidance across the sector. End-market trends were broadly in-line with Q2 updates with pockets of softness (India, Indonesia Mexico), pricing strength and a bullish tone on US trading.
