Breedon shares poised to enter price recovery phase

This billion-pound company has done well this year, but independent analyst Alistair Strang suggests bulls should wait for this to happen before acting.

A UK company with a substantial pedigree, FTSE 250 member Breedon Group (LSE:BREE) is starting to show early signs of some share price recovery. 

It’s unlikely any enthusiasm is coming from Scotland, with the company’s 37% ownership of Bear, the company that's meant to maintain Scotland's roads on behalf of the government. But to be fair, Breedon appears active in the rest of the UK, often with considerable success.  

Shares are currently trading around 100p below the pre-pandemic figure of five quid and playing footsie with a downtrend since 2021. There are signs it wants to enter a price recovery phase but we’re inclined to suggest waiting to see if the share price manages above 409p as things should happen.

Movement such as this should hopefully trigger a gain cycle to an initial 495p with our secondary, if beaten, a longer-term 559p and almost certain hesitation.
