|Great time to buy DOO people huge drop awaiting news april :)
CRY is the new BVS 2005 gna overperform from my review of accounts
|I wonder if the bid will be announced on Tuesday 15th March alongside the C&M half year figures. £3.00 a share is not that demanding for a Company with C&M profitability and growth potential. Could a second house builder also become interested in bidding?|
|dpf, I did exactly the same. I've been in CRY since early December and also BBC. But I sold CRY around 281ish the day after the first takeover announcement (added initially on the announcement.)
But no point really holding on here - I've transferred my holding over to BBC too.|
|Only having bought these shares 5 weeks ago couldn't resist the £1 per share profit and sold one third of my shareholding on day bid approach was announced. Put the proceeds plus quite a bit more into BBC at just over 500p per share. This company is on a historic PE of just 5 !!! This company is vastly undervalued, should be at least 600p and is IMHO a very strong bid target.|
|Board says it 'expects to recommend' offer at 300p but is not yet certain it will be made so upside looks limited now and would fall if offer fails to materialise. Rival approach still a possibility of course.|
|Hi people is it worth 10k @ 284 ?|
|I can understand that CRY are an attractive takeover proposition, but would be surprised if there was a sell out except under very, very favourable terms. Currently, their business seems to be housing market proof, providing them with exceptional durability without the need for a big brother.|
|Well, it looks like the takeover is on its way - any guesses as to who is involved?|
|My mistake, I did mean Bett Brothers, excuse me I am a pensioner, one of those senior moments!|
|I am a holder of both stocks as well. Let's hope they are both taken over.|
|Ben Bailey taken over? Don't you mean Bett Brothers???
I'm a BBC shareholder as well as CRY...
|Tipped in today's Times, see above link|
* Bridgewell Securities keeps an overweight on Country & Metropolitan and advises investors to switch out of Persimmon and into Barratt Developments.
Thanks, I tend to agree with you, particularly bearing in mind the niche in which CRY are involved; I would expect this to be more 'housing market' proof.
I for one will keep the faith.|
There is unlikely to be any negative influences except for the general bad press towards the future of the housing market. As CRY builds mostly in the north,where prices have still been rising, it should have done well to the half year. Small sellers can have a big influence on the share price of this stock from day to day. On a longer timespan of one or two months look for a move back above £2 following the expected trading update and half year figures.|
|What is happening with the SP, it seems stuck in a downward spiral? Appears to be heading for mid 170s at this rate, although I don't understand why. Can anyone advise of negative influences about to surface?|
|see BBC and PSN, I agree next trading statement should be good|
|Expect a trading update before end of January.
CRY does most of its house building in the north of England where house prices are still rising. If management assumed in thier earlier earnings guidance that house prices were going to fall (which would have been the prudent thing to do)and actually they are still going up in areas where they sell the bulk of their houses I think we can expect very good half year figures and a increase in full year earnings guidance.|
|strange question I know but can anyone confirm that the middle name of Stephen Wicks is "Desmond"
|A few weeks ago a large buyer (or perhaps buyers) was accumulating these shares late in the day, every day at around £1.82, Is he now back buying at approx £1.85 ? 50000 or possible 100000 shares purchased again late today and a smaller amount yesterday. If this is the same single buyer the 3% reporting threshold must be not that far away.
Is it another housebuilder building a stake or an institution buying ahead of a re-rating of these shares?
Has anyone any thoughts?|
