|Don't think there will be any problem renting rest of prospero. The new/refurbished office block, Greyfriars, in Reading seems to be a bit more difficult to get away.I believe there's plenty of interest in a pre-let of the new development in Lombard Street in London. If that happens shares will move up nicely.Fantastically well run Company. I've had shared in them for years.|
|good mileage here. has a long way to run|

Website for the finished development. Looks impressive...
|Well, Rip Van Winkle it's very likely we are at the start of a very long economic upswing.
No one can predict the future but if you nod off now and wake up in a couple of years.......|
|No but you might like to keep your fingers well crossed|
|Increased economic growth!
More and expanding UK companies!
Do I need to go on?|
|how would brexit make mcks a buy?|
|As Brexit starts proving itself, these must be the 'buy' of the month at these levels. Surely?|
|hefty buy by Montreal bringing them over 10%|
|Good to see some director buying at the lows.
Long long wait to get back to the recent highs tho.|

"We reported strong growth in capital values and earnings for the first half of the year in November 2015. Since then, our primary focus has continued to be on the release of further value from the significant potential within our existing portfolio. Good progress has been maintained; committed development projects remain on programme, leasing activity has been positive in securing rental values ahead of ERV, and property disposals have released substantial gains for reinvestment.
Tenant demand for business space across London and the South East has proved resilient so far this year and supply remains well below average. Named demand in the South East office market at the end of the year was 9.3% higher than at the end of 2014. This continues to be driven by obsolescence of existing space, companies with plans for expansion and consolidation, and a gradual increase in the number of enquiries from London occupiers looking for the combined benefit of lower occupational costs and Crossrail / mainline improvements.
The prospects for rental growth from this imbalance between supply and demand continues to support our strategy of positioning the portfolio within these markets."|
|Interims look OK to me. Comments anyone?|
|Speedy, Have you tried to contact the company about these director sells? Are they approachable on such matters?|
|Following on from my post above I am rather perplexed as the wider sector should be set fair for the next couple of yrs or so + the operational outlook for MCKS looks good (see today's rns below) so maybe we shouldn't be worrying about the large director sells? Maybe they are due to be awarded further large options in the not too distant future?
Not long to wait for an update. Interim Results in Nov.
Demolition to Commence at 30-32 Lombard Street - HTTP://www.investegate.co.uk/mckay-securities-/rns/demolition-to-commence-at-30-32-lombard-street/201510070700154535B/
Disclosure - I do not currently have a holding (long/short) in MCKS.|
|I note significant selling by directors in recent weeks. Simon Perkins (MD) + Giles Salmon (FD) have sold 52% of their shareholdings + another director (Steven Mew) has sold 44% of his holding. On the face of it this doesn't inspire confidence. There may be a perefectly good explanation (e.g. institution wanting to buy in) but afaics the company hasn't offered any explanation. On the surface it doesn't appear to be linked to awards of options seeing as options were awarded recently but the amounts awarded were far smaller than the number of shares sold. Which leaves one scratching one's head + asking why are they selling now? Do they know something we don't?
Anyone else have any info on the motives behind the large selling by directors?

|I am surprised that there has not been any reaction to today's refinancing announcement. The new arrangements look beneficial, especially the reduction in the interest rate swaps which have probably had a negative effect on some people's view of the company's balance sheet.|
|Big trades at 238p|
|well someone is keen - 2 trades totalling 1,477700 shares just gone through;|
|Remember, though, that TMF's recommendation - and particularly their sell point - was made three years before the recent rights issue. That has transformed the company's prospects and its investment profile, effectively making TMF's recommendation irrelevant to any current investment/sell decision.
Maybe TMF will revisit the proposition. IMHO the market is waking up to the new potential for this well managed REIT.|
|TMF tipped this in their "Shares 2011" PDF brochure - concluding with:
"Simultaneously, I expect NAV to increase gradually and the dividend to do the same. I’ll probably sell when the yield no longer makes McKay a lucrative investment. Based on the historic dividend and prevailing interest rates I would say this will be around the £2.20 mark should it happen over the next couple of years. But this is educated guesswork based on current interest rates and yields."
So it did what they said it would in three years. The price when tipped was 126p - so not a bad return at all for a safety first one. Including divis, this is 100%.|
