master rsi: Brokers TIPS: Crest Nicholson got a boost on Wednesday as Barclays said the stock was its 'top pick', replacing Redrow, following a period of share price underperformance that has left it looking "highly attractive". In a note on the UK housebuilding sector, the bank said that aside from a brief spike in cancellations immediately after the Brexit vote - which was largely confined to London and commuter towns - housebuilders continue to trade well. "The EU referendum vote now joins a list of recent headwinds (a general election; the Scottish independence vote) that have failed to derail the sector. Indeed, as memory of the vote continues to fade, strong fundamentals come more sharply into focus. "With mortgage rates at record lows, government commitment strong (Help to Buy Equity Loans remain in place until 2021) and an embarrassment of riches on offer in the land buying market, fundamentals remain intact," it said. Barclays said trading since the vote to leave the European Union has defied expectations, while wider economic fears have also tempered. As a result, it lifted price targets on a number of stocks across the sector. As far as overweight-rated Crest Nicholson is concerned, it pointed to a strong top-line growth focus driven by a move to higher price points. In addition it said the company's Southern footprint captures attractive end markets. It also argued that the group has "highly-regarded land buying credentials and the fastest sales rate in the listed space".
1gw: Goldman Sachs downgrades from conviction buy to neutral... May be having an impact, if true. hTtp:// Edit: Although this report suggests that yesterday the target price was cut from 740p to 575p with a "buy" rating. hTtp:// So not entirely clear as yet. Is this a further update of yesterday's rating change (in which case what's the price target with today's?) or are they talking about the same rating change? Edit no. 2: And here's the same source quoting exactly the same downgrade but attributing it to Jefferies. hTtp:// So maybe Jefferies yesterday, with a buy rating and 575p target, GS today with a neutral rating.
1gw: Oh well, share price didn't show much hesitation at the £4 level. What chance a director buy or two to try to shore up confidence?
speedsgh: monty - "When the CEO sold some shares, that's like ringing a bell, saying beware in my opinion." I assume you were saying the same thing this time last year when the CEO sold more than 3x more than he did recently? Interesting therefore to note that the share price a year ago was c450p following which it rose to c580p in Jun and has since traded in a broad sideways range of 495p-590p. That's not to say that exactly the same will happen again but I think you get the gist of my point i.e. last year's larger sale by the CEO did not turn out to be a forewarning of impending doom for the share price.
arc en ciel: No-one on this thread seems to have commented on the sale of a significant number of shares by the CEO Steven Stone on 8 April. There was an RNS announcement on that day hidden away at around 2.30 in the afternoon (to avoid the market's attention?) The share price has descended pretty steadily to a new 2016 low since then. Anyone know why he sold?
gp1948: 1gw - the final results which were issued at the end of January were very positive and nothing's changed since then. The whole sector seems to be in the doldrums and there's a bit of uncertainty about the EU referendum as well, which is a drag on the share price. CRST represents excellent value for money IMHO, being on a P/E of 8.6 for the year to Oct 2016 and with a forecast dividend of 6.7% for that year.
1gw: York selling yesterday (today's holdings notice) perhaps accounts for the share price weakness.
gp1948: It's always easy to doubt a company when it's share price is tumbling, but as Salpara said - sentiment has turned against this sector. All the house builders, including CRST, have good forward visibility - probably more so than other industries in the UK. They are all very profitable businesses, on low ratings and paying good returns to shareholders. Interest rates are on hold until late 2016 at the earliest, according to the BBC this week. I hold BVS, CRST, RDW and TEF and I shall continue to hold until the market corrects its view of this sector. Projected P/E for CRST for the current year to 31st Oct 2016 = 8.6, falling to 7.5 for the following year. Where else can you find a company with these sort of figures, selling a product of which there is a nationwide shortage and where that product is rising in price year on year?
a1pappadingdong: I think your right, and I see what you mean about it tracking Barratt.My biggest problem here is that I thought there was an interim management statement due at the beginning of September and I bought in advance of that-right at the peak of the GS news!Obviously that's not materialised, and now the share price is following its normal trend-but hurting me!I've traded this share quite well from 520-570 a few times this year, so I'm pretty angry at not getting my dates right. That said, long term this looks great. Low PE and PEG. I also noted that they plan to increase revenue to £1.4 Billion (currently £728 million) so plenty of room to grow and margin of safety. GS target of 790 is very achievable long term.Roll on the 17th of November!
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.
