Todays Telegraph: BUY at 132p suggests Schroder Salomon Smith Barney (128p this week). The broker has set a price target of 170p. The company has now secured the number four slot in the US equipment rental market. This is important as the US market contributes two-thirds of the company's profits and offers the potential for further growth. While other brokers may continue to be cautious, SSSB believes this is because they are placing too much emphasis on the uncertainty in the UK marketplace.
