dov: Does not seem to have made much difference to the share price this is still one of the worst performing house builders both on the way up and down
1gw: Amazing. I've almost talked myself out of this share. Another chunk gone today at 594p. I really like the company but have convinced myself that the share price run has got ahead of itself.
1gw: I agree a lot of disclosed short positions are probably hedging positions against bets elsewhere in the sector or the market (particularly if they are held by "hedge" funds). But companies will still adjust those hedges according to their view on the company/sector/market. So I think it's still worth tracking what's happening in aggregate on any particular company I invest in, because the volumes involved in short-selling relative to average daily volumes are often sufficient (I think) to influence the share price. So seeing Millennium move from steadily increasing to steadily decreasing would be a bullish sign for the share price in my opinion, and vice versa. A curious thing about Crest Nicholson is the relatively large shares on loan position. According to Euroclear it averaged 17.6m shares (nearly 7% of the shares in the CREST system) in February and has been between 13m and 21m shares since January 2016. So although it is possible (perhaps even likely) that some of those shares on loan are not for shorting purposes, I wonder if the declared shorters are really just the tip of the iceberg, in which case a short squeeze could be quite spectacular were it to happen.
creative_accountant: I would take disclosed short positions with a pinch of salt; they are most likely delta hedge short positions and as such are not a bet on the movement of the share price but a risk mitigation tool that needs to be continually adjusted which is why you have noticed them constantly evolving.
1gw: Disclosed short positions. Millennium appears to have taken advantage of the fall in the share price on Friday to reduce it's short from 0.88% to 0.71%.
creative_accountant: I hadn't noticed the new broker coverage so thanks for pointing that out, but sadly I feel CRST will now continue to under perform the sector as it has done over the last two business days whilst they ignore shareholder disapproval of the "easy" remuneration vesting criteria. The worrying thing is if CRST feel single digit profit growth is a stretch target than that says alot about their future profitability and how they see themselves performing. Redrow is not catching CRST in terms of share price and I believe, with its stronger EPS growth, it will soon overtake CRST. For its financial year ending June it will report C. 66p EPS which is broadly what CRST is expected to report for its own 2017 period ending 4 months later in October. After that with an improving ROCE and higher level of retained earnings if market conditions remain stable there is no doubt RDW EPS will accelerate well ahead of CRST and this seems to be a view backed by the board of RDW and indeed CRST; CRST see single digit earnigns growth as a stretch target whilst RDW stretch target is far more ambitious with an upper bound 92p EPS for 2019 for full LTIP vesting. For a company that is supposed to be balooning revenue to 1.4 bn and ramping up volumes to 4000 units the fact that the board of crst see single digit profit growth as their stretch target is very worrying and it does not add up.
creative_accountant: No surprise to see a sizeable drop here today on the back of the very disapointing ltip vesting criteria downgrade. Even the stretched targets suggest crest is not on target to reach broker consensus profits over the next 3 years, or indeed if it is the ltip criteria are far too easily achievable. Either way the downgrade has led brokers to downgrade their own eps targets which has eroded the implied value here and thus share price. This issue could well overshadow crest for some time to come and thus redrow and tef look superior options at current levels.
1gw: Crst share price benefitting from the BKG statement this morning I think: "The housing market in London and the South East has now stabilised. Overall, underlying reservations in the seven months since the immediate Brexit referendum effect (August to February) are down 16% on the comparable period last year, with the last two months ahead of last year. Enquiry levels remain robust, cancellation rates are at normal levels and pricing continues to be resilient and above business plan levels." hTtps://
1gw: Feels like a great setup going into the next couple of weeks' reports: 20th Feb: Bovis finals 22nd Feb: Barratt interims 27th Feb: Persimmon finals 28th Feb: TW finals ...and probably 1 or 2 I've missed. Momentum clearly with the Crest share price it appears, so a good reporting season will hopefully add fuel to the fire. What would be really good would be to see Millenium has changed its mind and started reducing its short, although normally institutional shorters seem to have fairly strong convictions and deep pockets.
lennonsalive: Housebuilder Berkeley Group reports 40% annual profits jump, attributing it to a surge in economic confidence. How odd the CRST share price is falling today.
