|A steady move on up out of the Doldrums?|
|SKYSHIP - Purely out of interest why do you call yourself an ex-pat and not an immigrant?|
|Well can't disagree with that spob.|
|Yes they all do I know, but I'm just making a comment about Sky and BBC news|
|She is known to work a huge number of hrs, even her detractors admit that,
probably completely shattered.|
|If Jeremy Corbyn fell asleep during the chilcot statement, I'm pretty sure the biased media would be all over it.|
|As I have a few hundred on TM to win she is all good )
Even without the bet, of the candidates the best one imv.|
Edit: well it just seems strong for reasons I don't understand. Mad market I guess|
|Appreciate the reply, GBP weakness is shorter term imv.|
|Hy - yes, Teresa May a safe pair of hands; and well used to the work level required of a PM having run the Home Office for the past 6yrs. Just wish the Conservative Party could speed up the leader election in these exceptional times - we need stability; and another two months of uncertainty is absurd.
EI - no don't hold BLND; but damaged elsewhere. Portfolio now back to all square YTD, but being an ex-pat in France the devaluation of £Sterling has hammered my pension. I can understand the fall v. $, but the fall v. Euro is way overdone - Euroland has far more problems than an indepenent UK...|
|3 more funds frozen today. More to come. Will this fall below £3?|
I would hate you to think I was a Guardian reader. I picked the article up in another newspaper!
Teresa May could be the answer.|
|SKY, you long here? TIA.|
|Ah - The Guardian - very little of much sense in that rag... Of course she was referring to the public closed fund sector - NOT the whole UK commercial property sector!
Not surprising everything on hold. Much of the Market was in lockdown ahead of the Referendum; with reportedly escape clauses built into most contracts.
Fantastic result for you with DPP - also assets in Euroland. Well done you...|
Would I ever put my tongue in my cheek!
Fiona Walsh writing in the Guardian says says Standard Life M&G and Aviva account for more than quarter of the sector. Thats my source. (All 3 have suspended withdrawals).
Believe me Sky this is going to get much worse. Anecdotally I have heard of several developments being put on hold, I know of several people who have closed their chequebook when it comes to purchases and so we have the crowd mentality again.
Look at sterling this morning. That means that cars in England have to go up in price.
I suspect that is the sort of economics a brexit supporter will understand.
Maggie Thatcher famously said you cant buck the markets.
The markets are firmly saying England is bucked.|
|A bit of hyperbole there surely. Real Estate property values will reflect the real economy; and the economy is in good shape - certainly not the case back in 2007-9.
Also presumably tongue-in-cheek about that 25% figure. The public closed fund investors represent a miniscule %age - would need to try & research that, but likley to be lesser than 0.1%...
Current share prices are being driven by sentiment and uncertainty, so I sure wish the new PM election didn't have to be such a protracted affair.|
|There was always going to be some volatility following BREXIT, however, I truly believe the UK will be better off in the long run. Just need to be patient and hope Carney and Osbourne stop talking the economy down. Regarding BLND, these will fall further I'm sure providing a fantastic buying opp of a rock solid company.
|I think you could see this fall to 2009 levels of around £3.00.
Brexit problems are only starting. Look at the massive withdrawals from and the closure from redemptions of funds owning 25% of the british commercial property market.
This is horrid.
It seems incredible a country would vote for self destruction.
England is not going to have to worry about the immigrants. Everyone will be trying to emigrate!|
|Price just ridiculous. Picked some up this morning at 539|
|Bargain around 600p. Portfolio virtually fully let. Cost of debt lowered. Time will tell on extent of the Brexit hit but suspect concern is way overdone. Now also yielding a chunky 5%.|
its the oxman
|Read Beaufort Securities's note on BRITISH LAND CO PLC (BLND), out this morning, by visiting hxxps://www.research-tree.com/company/GB0001367019
"British Land's performance for the year was promising, with a significant rise in underlying profit and sharp rise in the value of the company's assets. The company managed to deliver in line with its strategic objectives with strong rental growth and a high occupancy rate of 99% across its £9.6bn portfolio of offices, shops and homes. However, the prime market was impacted by both increased supply and recent tax changes, leading to a slowdown in transaction volumes. The company's business is resilient as it owns a modern portfolio that is nearly fully let to quality occupiers on long leases, yet it faces great uncertainty ahead of the EU referendum. A vote in favour of leaving the EU is likely to have an adverse effect on the property sector in general and in turn impact the company's prospects as well. Thus, in view of the uncertain environment, we would like to wait and watch before making an investment decision and, therefore..."|
|Much good thoughtful posting on this thread - a credit to this board.|
|IMHO Brexit would merely hasten something that is going to happen anyway in the next ten years....implosion of the EU. Who can believe that the work ethic of the Germans can sit comfortably with the lifestyle of the Mediterranean countries.
Germans say "we will pick you up from your hotel at 0730 and have breakfast so we can be in the factory by 0830 and we will have lunch in the canteen. Then we will have a party this evening and the same again for tomorrow". The Italians say " we will meet at the factory at 1130, and go for a nice lunch about 2pm." Both of these are true stories, although some while ago.
How long can the EU continue, without ever having its accounts signed off by its own auditors ?
I still think BLND is a sound long term share. Trade with Europe is not going to stop. Mercedes are not going refuse to sell their cars to nasty nasty Brits just because they have left the EU, nor Hermes or Veuve Cliquot etc. Trade will continue. Shopping centres and MegaSheds will still be needed.|
|Thank you danpollard and skyship........interesting articles.|
