CRH delivered on all fronts in 2021, achieving record profitability and expanding margins despite steep cost inflation. That speaks to both impressive execution and the group’s superior solutions-based model. When combined with its vast financial resources, that makes CRH a compelling investment proposition in our view. Recent share price weakness appears overly harsh in this context, with the stock down c.18% year-to-date. That provides an opportunity and we recommend investors take a long-term view and buy the shares.
