shanklin: We have one of BYG's new outlets being built near us, on the way into Aldershot. Not at all relevant to the share price, but why is it a horrendous bright orange rather than yellow? Its generally quite difficult to work out how to make Aldershot look more horrific but this certainly achieves that.

hedgehog 100: The IC "Sell" article on Selfstore last month contains quite a bit of info. very relevant to BYG - INVESTORS CHRONICLE, 11 JULY 2008 SAFESTORE (SAFE) SELL BEAR POINTS: * Worsening economic indicators * Fall in housing transactions * Short-term rental agreements * UK self-storage yet to face a big downturn BULL POINTS: * Rents and values holding up so far * Long-term trends SHARE PRICE 143p MARKET VALUE £269m Extracts from article: * "Both Safestore and its rival, Big Yellow, are now showing signs that trading is weakening." * " ... occupancy levels at Big Yellow were down from 82 per cent to 79 per cent in the year to end-March. Safestore has looked the more resiliant of the two ... " * " ... a slew of bad news makes us think the positive trend will end shortly. The group's customers are split 30 per cent businesses and 70 per cent domestic users. The outlook for both groups looks grim." * "The glum mood suggests that both businesses and consumers will think twice before taking on the cost of self-storage. Meanwhile, business from people moving house must be threatend by the slump in housing transactions ... " * "Unlike most other types of commercial property, self-storage leases are short-term, which means that changes in conditions have the potential to show up quickly in property valuations ... " * "So, despite the arguments put forward by the bulls, our instinct is that self-storage is likely to prove cyclical and the developing consumer downturn could be particularly painful because Safestore's leases are so short-term."

hedgehog 100: Key BYG business financials for year ended 31 March 2008: * Revenue £56.9 million * Adjusted profit before tax £13.3 million * Adjusted earnings per share 11.2p Key BYG assets/liabilities for year ended 31 March 2008: * Property value £854.27 million * Net debt £282.3 million * Net assets £580.1 million Other key BYG fundamentals, 2 August 2008 (share price 324.5p): * Shares in issue 115,428,399 * Market capitalisation £374.56 million * Adjusted price earnings ratio 28.97 Extracts from latest BYG finals results, 19 May 2008: * "Nicholas Vetch, Chairman of Big Yellow commenting on the outlook said: "Trading conditions are likely to remain difficult for some time ..."" * "Since September 2007, 25 of these 39 stores decreased in value, partially due to an increase in exit cap rates and also due to changes of assumptions on operating cash flow performance." * "This has been a challenging year for the Group, particularly in the second half of the year." * "The credit crunch, which started in August 2007 has clearly impacted the availability of mortgages to home owners which in turn has caused a significant reduction in housing market activity. This came on top of the additional costs from increasing interest rates over the previous year, and more latterly rising energy, food and transport prices." * "Approximately 50% of our customers are in some way linked to the housing market, for example with customers renting storage space between house moves or whilst moving within the rental sector." http://www.advfn.com/p.php?pid=nmona&cb=1217441825&article=26401991&symbol=L%5EBYG INVESTORS CHRONICLE, 11 JULY 2008 IC VIEW: "The economic downturn threatens to expose a cyclical side to the UK's fledgling self-storage sector. Although Big Yellow's first quarter results offer some encouragement, high enough at 262p." The same issue of the IC made Selfstore a "Sell". I would expect IC "Sell" advice on BYG to follow. Big BYG property value write-downs look very likely to me, based upon worsening business. Because of BYG's net debt, these would have a geared effect upon net assets. E.g. a 30% write-down in property values (£256.28 million) would reduce net assets by 44.18%. And this is leaving aside the fact that the very basis on which BYG's properties are valued looks very over-generous to me. I.e. a high multiple of net rental income received, considering the high costs (2008: cost of sales £20.792 million on revenue of £56.87 million) which are likely to magnify any fall in rent, and the short-term nature of leases to self-storage customers. Property is generally only worth what it can be sold for. Because of the fledgling nature of the self-storage sector, there has been little testing of values in the market, leaving far more discretion in setting the valuation rating (i.e. very high). What evidence there is suggests that 'real' values are actually far lower than those claimed. With the property crash continuing, I believe that net assets could easily halve (to about £290 million), and that BYG could be valued at a 50% discount to those net assets (about £145 million - 126p/share). And that is assuming that business is not hit too hard, and that the company does not run into debt problems.

vassily: BYG have also got to pay back the money they borrowed to fund their rapid expansion. The RoI (% yield) will rise if the share price falls further. Seems likely looking at the chart, but who knows.

vassily: scurbs: That's why the chart up top looks the way it does. Even some of the hot money is put off BYG at these prices (and the directors start selling). And the dividend is very very low for what is essentially a real estate company. A sure sign of too much liquidity raising a share price. BYG will fall further at some point in time. This will be healthy as is the entry of Safestore (to accompany Lok 'n' Store). There will be a better time to buy BYG. I wait patiently.

kievtrader: mention of BYG in Daily mail and Times today re price rise under section dealing with property companies converting to REITS. Great stock and will go higher on back of REIT news in new year and possible bid. I've just taken a little profit on this one and brought 22,000 LOK - Lok'n Store which is in same sector of self storage but is a lot cheaper than this one. BYG trades at 700p at a 100% premium to Net asset value. LOK in recent results came out with NAV of 213p per share so the share price at 227p is only a little above this NAV -if it performs the same as BYG (which has doubled in a year) then LOK will also trade at 100% premium and could double to 400p but I suspect a bid will come before this can happen - as is the case for BYG. doubled up on BYG and will wait for further gains and possible bid before coming out of the rest and rolling over into LOK for exposure to the same self-storage sector but with more upside from current levels than BYG. Let's hope for a 800p bid on BYG in next few weeks.
