bakunin: Going against the tide here. I like what they are trying to do with new technology/processes to shake things up. You can't make good returns for shareholders if the business is dependent on highly-remunerated key personnel. The letting business is only going to get bigger. The new generation know that property is over-priced and that the country's debt is too high to embark on a massive social housing spree, so they are renting and living for the day. They have no interest in wealth accumulation. This is no good for the future of the country. There is nobody who hates buy-to-letters more than me and very few of this generation are going to consider bringing up families in such accommodation. So, we will get a massive indigenous population decline like in Italy, the trend of low-skilled, 10-to-a-house immigration will continue and Britain will be unrecognisable in 20 years' time. Unless they allow property prices to crash this time at the next recession... By the time any of this is confronted, CWD may very well have produced some decent returns for those buying at the current share price.

tarrant777: Comprehensive trading update, within which they still can't resist adopting some meaningless babble about branches to prove how clever and forward looking they are.Sadly however the core of the update proves yet again that this is a business in steep decline, losing market share despite having bought extra distribution and put significant debt on the balance sheet.One suspects that the share price will get hammered further and that at the year-end, a dividend cut will be announced.Arrogant board and management, with no relevant experience, should be ashamed at the destruction of a once strong market leading business, and huge loss of shareholder value.

ih_522310: Foxtons, LSL and Countrywide set for boost as house prices recover. hxxp://www.ibtimes.co.uk/uk-housing-market-banishes-post-brexit-blues-1586953 Personally I would give Foxtons a miss as they are too London centric and not diversified. Re share price agree about the shorters ( I assume the shameless hillofwad is one), but disagree about the target. £3 is fair value here based on FTSE PE ratios. We shall see

tarrant777: The share price has stabilised. One senses that the people who have been shorting the stock for months, and have made a fortune on the way down, may have decided that £2 a share is the time to close positions and go looking for the next target.I don't think however that optimists should expect to see a long run up from here however.

lauders: You can never be sure yewtrees, unless you have insider knowledge or are a director. Nearly invested in CWD a few times but personal dealings with them as a landlord put me off. Hope things don't go too badly share price-wise for you and other holders today. Good luck.

daddy bear: Chaps & Chapettes, This share can go two ways, a RISE or a FALL (a cunning deduction eh!): A RISE to 400p-450p. (£800 million value approx) Due to: 1. MANIPULATION of share price by the institutions specifically to squeeze out the large number of publicly known shorters to make easy profits. (The Evil Knevil factor). An institution can purchase a large volume of shares to push up the CWD share price by say 3%. Due to the huge number of amateur investors shorting CWD through spreadbetting firms/brokers, a 3% price rise (e.g. 10p on 350p share approx.)can cause a large number of shorters to reach their stop losses and have to buy to cover their positions. So a 10p rise can suddenly become a 21p rise! Basically due to the large numbers of people shorting this share (how much amateur money is on this short I wonder?) any price rises will be exaggerated greatly due to shorters having to buy as their loss limit has been reached. However the benefit for us is this will encourage more shorters to come in at new peaks and drive the price down. HOWEVER then the process of squeezing shorters out can start all over again at a higher share price! The overall consequence will be that the share price will be very volatile with huge up and down swings. The institutions making profits with each peak/trough. It does concern me that logically this rise (cat and mouse game between public and institutions) could/will? continue indefinitely untill the majority of the 'amateur' shorters stop trying to short this share and then the institutions sell. The 'last amateur bear' gives up and only then will it go down. I fear the institutions greatly have the upper hand. 2. THE BUYBACK. How much will be bought back - will they spend all their 'war chest' - what price could it push the share price to? How much cash does CWD actually have? 3. A TAKEOVER. Possible U.S Interest (who could be the potential suitors out there?)- however with negative sentiment starting to rise in both UK/global and US real estate markets I would be suprised if there was a predator. Better to wait for tough times ahead and a cheap bargain. 4. The hype surrounding the following: a)FLOATATION OF RIGHTMOVE - (within 3 months?). May be valued at £100 million max - but will this float be a success - (if property downturn continues)? Is this already incorporated in SP? It will provide extra cash to CWD - but how long will it last and how much will it actually be? Any predictions with evidence would be greatly appreciated. b)SIPPS and the possibility of a renewed property boom when people can put property into their pensions (April next year?). However if sentiment is negative in property sector next year I believe that the public will not go for this - also the press have been quite unfavourable about how beneficial and user friendly this scheme is. I reckon it is too complicated for your average BTL investor, and it will not entice much new demand when/if slump has set in. c) August 1.6% RISE in the property market published by the Halifax a few days ago, heralding a resurgent property market, and the implication that this will lead to a big pick up in sales/purchases and hence business for CWD. I personally believe the property market will fall 30-40% in the next 2-6 years for numerous reasons too time consuming to go into now. (see previous postings). In all crashes you will have vested interest groups talking the market up and false dawns on the way down. But I believe the downturn will continue. The slower the better - I am not interested in price falls but purchase/selling number falls. Stagnation and potential buyters sitting tight on the sidelines and owners in their properties is what we want. d) The introduction of compulsory SELLERS PACKS in 2007 (?). Depending on what you've read this is meant to generate alot of money for CWD as they have a contract to produce these (how much?). But is it Rightmove that have the contract for this? and surely by then CWD will have split off from Rightmove so the revenue projections for this will have to be included in the floatation price? Will Sellers packs also exacerbate an already stagnant housing marketin 2007? THE FALL to 150p - 200p (£350 million value approx) Due to: 1. MANIPULATION/BUYBACK OF share price WILL END. Eventually a time will come (when?) when the shorters give up (as too many burnt fingers), or the institutions decide to sell to take profits (s.p has got too high)and the share price will be dictated by fundamentals of the property market. What this price will be I can only guess; is 450p an unreasonable TOP, could it go higher? How Low will it Fall and why call 150p the bottom? 2. PROPERTY MARKET FALL/SLUMP. CWD business is based on this - I presume all shorters agree outlook for sales volume is dire over next 2-3 years. Profits will collapse, businesses will close and share price will fall. 3. The Hype for SIPPS, SELLERS PACK and RIGHTMOVE FLOATATION does not materialise due to stagnant property market and exacerbates an already worsening situation due to press turning them into an even more negative story as jumping on housing crash bandwagon. Please forgive me if I have got figures/facts wrong - corrections welcome! I originally saw this speculative gamble as a simple short of the property market - putting it all down in a post helps me clarify my thoughts. There is more to this short then the property market slump. Just so you know I am on a LONGTERM SHORT at £50 ppt at an average 350p on a MAR 06' contract but will roll over each quarter if needs be - with a 12 month outlook. Obviously nursing some paper losses. Pity those who went short at 300p, 250p etc - I wonder how many of those still have to cover there positions? It's a dilemma - the age old story - where does one cut their losses. I had a choice to buy a £5K motorbike and stay out of shorting the property market or speculate with £5K and then hopefully get a 100% return and buy a a 5K motorbike and have the other £5k to take it on a tour to Russia! There is a high chance I will end up on a push bike in the dales! We shall see. Anyway in summary I have based my short on a stagnant/falling property market 2005-2010 and do not really want to discuss if that will materialise or not. But I would like opinions, implications, effects and pros/cons on CWD share price with evidence and info on: 1. MANIPULATION of share price by institutions (The short/EK effect) 2. THE BUYBACK 3. FLOATATION of RIGHTMOVE 4. TAKEOVER POSSIBILITY 5. SELLERS PACKS 6. SIPPS 7. Potential top and bottom of SP 8. Any other issues I have missed Please discuss the above issues, any info will help me greatly on re-evaluating my stop loss. My other property short is PARAGON. - again not a great return! Thank to all in advance Daddy Bear ps. riding a motorbike is alot more fun then riding this damn share price. Would it not have been better to walk into a casino and place £5k on red!! ;)
