astute timing

"Astute timing" - what does it mean?

"I am fortunate to find you at home."
It was not particularly fortunate. It was, on the contrary, astute timing. But he replied heartily: "Yes. Just caught me."

Hope you can enlighten me.

    In this context, the person B is saying that person A was lying when person A asserted that he met up with person B by chance. Person B is asserting that person B planned it perfectly.
