ed 123: Quandary. JP Morgan have Kier as their sector favourite, yet WorldQuant have been (and possibly still are?) short selling Kier. I can understand the former's position but I wish I knew just why WorldQuant were short selling. Have they seen something or are they just following momentum? If it were just momentum trading, then I would be more confident about buying - 5.7% dividend yield and possible share price recovery. I hesitate because they may have some other reason and may keep selling. Today's trading was encouraging for holders, with the afternoon reversal hinting at a possible blue finish. But ... the price weakened over the last 10 minutes, so seller was still evident. Summer coming and if 'Trumpflation' doesn't live up to expectations the US markets could give back some gains. Hmmm ... maybe not a good time for me to be brave here?

ed 123: The start of the fall coincided with the release of the interims. So, possibly, the answer lies in that document? On page 10 it states, We continue to progress with a challenging project which has necessitated an additional provision of £33m. Besides the obvious loss of £33m of shareholders' funds, there's the concern as to how this arose. There ought to have been careful scrutiny to get a full understanding at the tender stage. Too much local autonomy at tendering and staff trying to meet the Chief Exec's double digit annual growth target? Possibly? Have to say, I don't know how they operate, though. Anyway, WorldQuant have recently declared a 0.5% short position. Their selling would have helped take the share price down. There's a trading update due on 28 June - a chance to calm nerves.

stewart64: Probably right, very unusual for such a precipitous fall in a share price with so much broker backing and only positive news coming out. At some stage there will be no sellers left, fairly soon I would have thought.

speedsgh: Buy cheap Kier, says Peel Hunt - HTTP://citywire.co.uk/money/the-expert-view-kier-tritax-and-civitas/a1010810?ref=citywire-money-picture-galleries-list#i=2 Recent share price weakness at construction and property group Kier (KIE) has created a buying opportunity, according to Peel Hunt. Analyst Andrew Nussey reiterated his ‘buy’ recommendation and target price of £16.00 on the stock after in line first half results, which included a new residential joint venture that ‘accelerates the re-deployment of capital into affordable housing’. Nussey added that despite management remaining ‘confident in the delivery of the Vision 2020 objectives’ to grow earnings and dividends per share, the shares have ‘drifted lower’ by c.10%. ‘This appears unwarranted and with the shares trading on 11.3x June 2018, offering a 5% yield – 1.6x covered – we reiterated our “buy”,’ he said. ‘The Kier model is straightforward and working well…we are confident that the Vision 2020 will support rerating as the value drivers become better understood.’ At the time of writing, the shares were trading flat at £13.17.

shauney2: ‘Buy’ Kier Group (target price £16) Kier (KIE) is a property, residential, construction and services company. ‘Kier already pays an attractive yield, but it is the dividend growth potential that stands out,’ writes Peel Hunt analyst Andrew Nussey. ‘Kier’s exposure to more resilient growth markets (eg, infrastructure at 40% FY17E EBITA) is yet to be fully understood. However, we are particularly excited by the potential to invest the predictable and attractive cash flows from services (52% FY17 EBITA) and construction (24% EBITA) into the complementary property (12% EBITA) and residential (12% EBITA) activities. ‘Our “base case” analysis indicates the potential to deliver 165p of earnings in 2020, implying a potential organic CAGR [compound annual growth rate] of 12% (8% CAGR in dividend as cover rebuilds to 2x). Despite the recent share price performance, there is still scope for re-rating as well as earning upside for continued strong execution.’

shauney2: Kier gets a kick from consulting firm sale Construction and property group Kier (KIE) has taken further steps to enhance its operations after the sale of a consulting subsidiary. Peel Hunt analyst Andrew Nussey retained his ‘buy’ recommendation and increased the target share price from £14 to £16 following the sale of Mouchel Consulting for £75 million in cash. ‘This is another positive step taken by management to enhance the quality and positioning of Kier’s operations,’ he said. ‘We remain confident in the outlook and the potential for increased infrastructure investment leaves the group well positioned relative to sector peers. The shares have performed well post-Brexit but we sense the defensive growth attractions remain undervalued. ‘Shares trade on 11.4 times our revised June 2018 earnings per share forecast and yield 5.2%. Demonstrable progress, strengthening balance sheet – with opportunities for organic growth investment – and improving earnings visibility leads us to upgrade our medium-term target price to £16.00.’

speedsgh: Kier downgraded on share price strength - HTTP://citywire.co.uk/money/the-expert-view-centrica-sky-and-hammerson/a952362?ref=citywire-money-picture-galleries-list#i=4 Kier Group (KIE) has been downgraded after strong share price growth as it is set to benefit from government investment in infrastructure. Numis analyst Howard Seymour downgraded the stock from ‘buy’ to ‘add’ with a target price of £14.07. The shares jumped 2.5% to £13.12 yesterday. ‘Kier has once again demonstrated a strong performance in its full-year figures, and we would particularly highlight the strong organic growth, profit outperformance versus peers and materially better net debt profile as key attributes of the results,’ he said. ‘Self-driven initiatives should enable double-digit profit before tax and earnings per share growth to 2020, but we also believe that the strong scope for increased infrastructure investment and greater government focus on the affordable housing market put Kier in a prime position and should at least underpin upper quartile profit and share price performance.’ He said the downgrade was based on ‘recent share price strength’ but the group is ‘one of our favoured plays in the sector’.

kangaroo joe: Possibly - but often the higher dividend yield is proportional to the risk of a cut. Boards are loathed to cut a dividend not least because of the sudden impact and consequence for directors' incentives linked to total shareholder return. Turning to the statement: market won't like exceptional but overall looks reassuring. Selling the Journey consulting business pays for closing down Caribbean operation. Share price should fall or rise or stay the same, I'm never wrong!

speedsgh: Prospects for Kier not reflected in share price - HTTP://citywire.co.uk/money/the-expert-view-prudential-shell-and-kier/a892247?ref=citywire-money-picture-galleries-list#i=5 Construction and property group Kier (KIE) has been upgraded thanks to a positive outlook for the second half of its financial year. Numis analyst Howard Seymour upgraded his recommendation from ‘add’ to ‘buy’ with a target price of £16.25. The shares dipped 1p to £12.99 yesterday. ‘Kier has demonstrated a strong performance across the group with good organic growth in construction and residential operations, while (the acquisitions of) Mouchel has clearly been the driver of services growth,’ he said. ‘We believe this sets the scene for an excellent outlook for H2 and beyond. Market improvement coupled with management actions… means that Kier has the platform to provide best-in-class growth relative to the wider sector.’ Seymour added: ‘We continue to believe that this is not reflected in the share price – noting in particular the 20% yield premium to the sector even though Kier is one of the few increasing its dividend per share.’
