gp1948: Referring to the article in post #4041 - it's rather misleading to describe GFRD as a housebuilder. Yes, it does build houses, and that part of the business is very profitable too, turning in an operating profit of 18.2% in the last financial year. But the largest part of the business, comprising over 50% of turnover, is the construction division which excludes housebuilding and which in the last complete financial year made an operating profit of 0% and a huge exceptional item loss. In their plan for the years ahead the directors of GFRD hope to turn the construction division around to give an operating profit of 2% in 2021. This target seems rather undemanding and is, perhaps, the reason for GFRD's low rating. Figures I quote above are from: hTTps://
speedsgh: GFRD is now trading on a fwd yield of 8.4%. That seems to be pricing in an awful lot of negativity, unless the market knows something that we don't? Chart does not look great. Ignoring the Brexit referendum spike down & subsequent recovery, the share price is still in a longer term downtrend which started mid 2015.
mattcookson: Housebuilder and construction company Galliford Try (LSE: GFRD) updated the market this morning with its full-year results. We’ve endured a stomach-churning ride with the share price over the last couple of years due mainly to the push-pull relationship between the firm’s largest divisions. The housebuilding division, Linden Homes, has been wonderfully profitable, but the firm has found it hard to keep the construction operation in the black and today’s results reflect the internal battle. One-off charge Compared to a year ago, revenue is up 9% but earnings declined 55% due to the “profit impact of the one-off charge of £98.3m announced in May.” In other words, Linden Homes made lots of profit but losses in the construction division took half of it away. However, the directors assure us that forward contracts in the construction division are under control and the firm is treating the hit to profits as an exceptional item. I hope they are right because the company puts a lot of effort into its construction operation, which accounted for around 55% of revenue during the period. Looking at the figures after ignoring the exceptional charge to profits, underlying earnings per share lifted 10%. The firm also moved from a net debt position of £8.7m to a net cash position of £7.2m. The directors made an implied statement about their confidence in Galliford Try’s forward prospects by pushing up the full-year dividend by 17%. High dividend And the dividend looks attractive. At today’s 1,373p share price, the forward yield for the year to June 2018 runs at 7% and City analysts following the firm expect earnings to advance 16% and cover the payout almost 1.8 times.
carcosa: That's a five year target. Dividend pay-out ratio is too high to sustain dividend in 2017 and continue to grow the business without yet more debt (subject to distributable reserves). More likely next year will see a dividend cut/hiatus to be followed with re-instatement in 2018 and subsequent growth to reach their declared target. I was expecting a harsher fall in the share price of around 18%. Perhaps long term that will come to pass. What is of concern however is how on earth this news has only just been released. Makes you question what other skeletons there may be in the closet and who is responsible for the mess.
broadwood: Galliford Try has proposed to Bovis that the equity in the combined group would be split 52.25% to Galliford Try shareholders and 47.75% to Bovis shareholders. On the basis of the share price of Galliford Try at close of business on 10 March 2017 this would value the entire issued equity of Bovis at GBP1,191m or 886p per share, representing a 7.0% premium to the closing share price of Bovis on the same date. Under Galliford Try's proposal, Galliford Try shareholders would receive the Galliford Try interim dividend announced on 21 February 2017 to be paid on 6 April 2017, and Bovis shareholders would receive the Bovis recommended final dividend announced on 20 February 2017 and payable on 19 May 2017
speedsgh: Peel Hunt: Galliford Try story ‘still attractive’ - HTTP:// Peel Hunt expects ‘material improvements’ at Galliford Try (GFRD) after the housebuilder set out its strategic plans. Analyst Clyde Lewis retained his ‘buy’ recommendation and target price of £16.50 on the stock, which closed 12p or 0.8% lower at £15.03. ‘While the group reported good progress with its H1 [first half] results, with profit before tax up 19%, the key news…is the group’s 2021 strategic growth vision,’ he said. ‘These plans will see material improvements in all three divisions, resulting in group profit before tax being over £230 million in four-and-half years’ time versus £160 million in full year 2017. Despite the post-Brexit rally in the share price, we believe investors will find this story attractive.’
jaf111: Results statement look very good to me, and 23% increase in divi more than i was expecting. Can see the recent strong share price increase continuing and can see no reason why we shouldn't be retesting £18 before long.
firtashia: What's a shame is that decent people may well have entrusted their hard earned cash/pension pots to such establishments. There's plenty of basket case companies to short, and GFRD certainly isn't one of them. By shorting GFRD they confuse quality businesses with movements in share price. IMHO what they are doing is not investment, but utter speculation.
speedsgh: More upside at Galliford Try, says Numis - HTTP:// There is still upside to be found in Galliford Try (GFRD) shares as the housebuilding and construction group reports better performance and lower finance costs. Numis analyst Christen Hjorth retained his ‘hold’ recommendation but reduced the target price from £14.95 to £13.00. ‘Galliford Try reported results that were slightly ahead of our forecasts, driven by a better-than-expected operating performance and lower net finance costs,’ he said. ‘Looking forward, while the EU referendum result has led to increased uncertainty, management points to the outlook remaining positive for all three businesses, and we therefore leave our forecasts broadly unchanged.’ Hjorth said that based on Numis’ methodology the target price for Galliford had been reduced in line with recent share price declines in the sector. He said it still ‘represents 8% upside to the current share price, and we therefore retain our ‘hold’ recommendation’. The shares gained 5p yesterday afternoon to trade at £12.21.
anley: In today's Times - Page 46 it mentions that Insight Investment Management has a 1.12% short in GFRD. That is a big position in a share which is not usually traded in massive volumes. As the results - due next month are better than the management has forecast and provided the Stock Market is no subject to a doom and gloom period of trading it will be interesting to see what happens to the share price. An interesting price movement month for all the house builders so keep an eye open as the City has got this wrong as it does with most trends........
