|damanko: The UK's second largest brick maker, Forterra - floated on the LSE main market 26th April 2016. With a market cap (£350M+) sufficient to hoist the company towards the FTSE 250 in due course, performance & price uplift permitting.
Interesting times for brick makers. Politicians (of all hue), journalists, construction analysts and especially Joe Public would all agree on one simple fact -: demand for new housing in our cramped little country far outstrips supply.
The supply/demand ratio is unlikely to change anytime soon, however logic suggests that over time it needs to change quite dramatically, and with the ongoing impact of immigration, a great deal more housing will be needed.
A third or more of UK new build housing developers use Forterra's unique style of bricks during construction.
In investment / stock market terms there is unlikely to be any such thing as a 'no brainer'.
However I bought in a few days after the IPO, and see this as a medium to long term jobbie. Looking at recent trades, many of the sells are so small (and so similar) they're likely to be employees & pensioners belonging to the company cashing in on free shares, or internally issued equity.
There is currently no indication of income/dividend forecast, when the board publish this I'll edit this post to include it, along with starting yield at the IPO price.
