Travis Perkins saw its stock price rise during early trading today after announcing it was extending its £100m ($132m) share buyback programme by a further £70m.

In a statement, the UK builders’ merchant said the capital would be returned through the purchase of the company’s ordinary shares.

A full update on the programme, which was triggered by the disposal of its plumbing and heating distribution business, will be given at its full-year results in March 2022.

Stock price rises

The positive news was enough to have lifted the FTSE 250 company’s share price by 1.25% to £15.09 by 10am on the London markets.

Travis Perkins also reported that it had bought back 3,810,335 ordinary shares for a total consideration of approximately £58m since the beginning of October 2021.

The extended buyback, which brings the total value of the programme to £170m, begins today and ends no later than 23 June 2022, unless otherwise decided.

Proceeds from plumbing division sale

The original share buyback programme was announced at the back end of September 2021, following the completion of the plumbing and heating division disposal.

In a statement issued at the time, Travis Perkins said the net proceeds would be returned to shareholders through a combination of a special dividend and a share buyback programme.

“Travis Perkins will pay a special dividend of approximately £79m in aggregate, representing 35p per ordinary share,” it added.

The difference between trading assets and CFDs
The main difference between CFD trading and trading assets, such as commodities and stocks, is that you don’t own the underlying asset when you trade on a CFD.
You can still benefit if the market moves in your favour, or make a loss if it moves against you. However, with traditional trading you enter a contract to exchange the legal ownership of the individual shares or the commodities for money, and you own this until you sell it again.
CFDs are leveraged products, which means that you only need to deposit a percentage of the full value of the CFD trade in order to open a position. But with traditional trading, you buy the assets for the full amount. In the UK, there is no stamp duty on CFD trading, but there is when you buy stocks, for example.
CFDs attract overnight costs to hold the trades (unless you use 1-1 leverage), which makes them more suited to short-term trading opportunities. Stocks and commodities are more normally bought and held for longer. You might also pay a broker commission or fees when buying and selling assets direct and you’d need somewhere to store them safely.
