sogoesit: From Shares Lead article 02 November: ARE HOUSEBUILDERS BUILT ON SOFT FOUNDATIONS? A rally in the housebuilding sector on expectations of further state support in the Budget on 22 November is coming to a juddering halt amid sceptical analyst comment, a slowdown in mortgage approvals and data which reveals the perilous state of Government fi nances. Investors have to decide if the housebuilders can continue to grow earnings and cash flow regardless, supported by an ongoing imbalance between supply and demand of housing stock. If so, investors might start weighing these companies based on earnings per share and dividend yield rather than the tradi onal measure of price to net asset value (NAV). The housebuilders are a case in point of why it can be a mistake to focus just on one valua on metric when considering an investment. On a price-to-earnings basis, and despite a strong run, they con nue to trade at a discount to the wider market at an average of just over 10 mes (FTSE All-Share around 15 mes) but based on price to NAV these shares are, for the most part, as expensive as they have been at any point since the fi nancial crisis. WHAT ARE THE MAIN CONCERNS? In a report published on 30 October, Barclays Capital expressed concerns about the sector’s valua on, highligh ng a risk that Government schemes to encourage home buying might disappoint, as well as outlining worries about skilled labour shortages. ‘One of Britain’s biggest ever post-elec on surveys revealed support for the Government at its lowest among the young. Ahead of the Autumn Budget, we believe one key tenet (“inter-genera onal fairness”) will be front and centre,’ it says. ‘Although measures could be impac ul, history suggests that they can lack teeth (solving our “broken” housing market is not easy) and we believe expecta ons may have run ahead of themselves. ‘This, together with strong share price performance – our housebuilder index is up 46% year-to-date (versus the FTSE 250 up 10%) – leads us to downgrade Persimmon (PSN) and Berkeley (BKG) (from equal weight to underweight) and Redrow (RDW), Bellway (BWY) and Taylor Wimpey (TW.) (from overweight to equal weight).’ KEY CONCERNS Investors owning housebuilders’ shares should think about what Brexit may eventually mean for demand, plus consider if house prices are ge ng too high (and therefore out of reach) for many poten al buyers, even when factoring in help from various Government schemes. An expected rst increase in interest rates in more than 10 years at today’s Bank of England mee ng (2 Nov) is another factor to consider, as the increased cost of mortgages could poten ally reduce demand for new build proper es. A VOLATILE SECTOR Shareholders in this sector have endured considerable vola lity in the last 10 years as the nancial crisis and the Brexit vote wiped billions o market valuations. Housebuilders’ balance sheets are in much be er shape to survive a downturn this me round. However, earnings and cash now remain sensitive to fluctuati ons in the wider property market and the ability to sustain profitability at current levels could be constrained by increasing labour and raw material costs. History suggests it would be a mistake to expect the current favourable condi ons in the sector to con nue inde nitely. (TS)

ali47fish: anyone cares to comment on this fool suggesting psn as a sell please! Why I’d dump Persimmon plc and buy this ‘expensiveR17; stock instead-Persimmon a ‘sell’.G A Chester | Monday, 30th October, 2017 | More on: LOK PSN Housebuilders have been one of the great investment plays since the 2008/09 recession, delivering huge rises in share prices and masses of dividends. However, housebuilding is a highly cyclical boom-and-bust industry and current valuations suggest to me that it’s time to be fearful when others are greedy. The table below shows some data at annual results dates for FTSE 100 housebuilder Persimmon (LSE: PSN) going back to the years before the last crash.   Market cap (£bn) Book value (£bn) Net profit (£m) P/B P/E Operating margin (%) Share price (p) 27/2/2017 6.26 2.74 625 2.3 10.0 25 2,030 23/2/2016 6.24 2.46 522 2.5 12.0 22 2,029 24/2/2015 5.06 2.19 372 2.3 13.6 18 1,650 25/2/2014 4.46 2.05 257 2.2 17.4 16 1,463 25/2/2013 2.72 1.99 170 1.4 16.0 13 898 28/2/2012 2.13 1.84 109 1.2 19.5 10 705 01/3/2011 1.36 1.74 115 0.8 11.8 8 452 02/3/2010 1.28 1.62 74 0.8 17.3 4 424 03/3/2009 1.13 1.56 (625) 0.7 n/a 11 375 26/2/2008 2.28 2.35 414 1.0 5.5 22 760 26/2/2007 4.41 1.84 396 2.4 11.1 21 1,473 27/2/2006 4.17 1.69 345 2.5 12.1 23 1,416 As you can see, before the last housing crash, Persimmon was posting record profits, operating margins were in the cyclically high 20s and P/Es were temptingly ‘undemanding’. But the share price had almost halved, even as it was reporting a record net profit of £414m in February 2008. And halved again by the time it reported a £625m loss a year later. As you can also see, the ideal time in the cycle to buy is when operating margins and profits are depressed, P/Es are high (or off the scale, as at the time of the £625m loss) and P/Bs are below one, indicating a discount to net assets. However, we’re now back to top-of-the-cycle operating margins in the 20s, record profits, undemanding P/Es but high P/Bs. In fact, at today’s share price of 2,800p and incorporating H1 numbers, the operating margin is 28% and the P/B is 3.2 — unprecedented highs. I don’t believe “it’s different this time.” And with UK personal borrowing at its highest level in history, interest rates set to rise, and house prices already falling in London, I see substantial downside risk. As such, I think the time has come to switch to rating Persimmon a ‘sell’.

davius: Persimmon doing well, single handedly pushing my ISA along very nicely indeed. Plenty of press coverage recently re the green paper I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, and the various party conferences all sounding positive too, with the government coming up with yet another plan to increase house building in the UK. The only negative I can see is that the share price is getting to look a bit "toppy". I'm holding for the time being.

effortless cool: A great update this morning. This superb company is still stupidly underpriced. It is practically a cash machine, yet a share price of 2,580p would still only leave it on a 5% prospective yield.

acamas: simso, I have always looked upon special divis as giving away part of the company because the BOD can find little better to do with the cash at this time. So if you take money out of the business then over all business is worth less and the share price adjusts accordingly. I need convincing size of the business has much to do with it. Special Divis short term means one thing company shrinkage. Not everybody will agree with me but that is my take on it

simso: owenga, I have been caught by this phenomenon of the share price falling disproportionately on ex div day several times recently...but its usually on smaller caps. It is completely illogical, but really does seem to happen too often for it to a coincidence. I remember reading something about it in the Naked Trader's book..speculating that perhaps a few stop losses are inadvertently triggered, or a few momentum traders sell because the price is lower, without even stopping to consider the ex div effect. I could just about believe the phenomenon for a small cap, but it is hard to believe for a larger business like PSN. I suspect the fall is half down to ex div and half general sell off.

isaready: In a nutshell, the price will say it all. The recent falls are not overdone. Remember this, share prices work 12/18 months ahead of the real world. Share Price peaked middle of 2006 and started falling. Share price started falling from that moment up until 2009. In the real word, house prices continued to rise till 2007, at least another 6/9 months or so until credit started drying up and prices reached high multiples. The same will happen here, Price has peaked and the share price will no doubt fall. In the meantime, prices may well rise for a bit longer, this is normal, say end 2016 if you are lucky. But once the peaks settle in, prices will start to fall. Rates cannot be cut anymore and its not feasible to say the housing market is SOUND or OK when you rely on government intervention for funding and the odd rate cut to support it. It's unstable. Simple as that. I won't need to prove anything, the market is telling you already, 9 months ahead. 50% less funding for commercial. Those who sold in London, some making 500K in 4 years on a property for 300K 4 years ago, have sold and gone.

malcolmmm: something a little different, how about housebuilder Persimmon (LSE: PSN)? Persimmon has enjoyed a stunning recovery in earnings since the depths of the recession, with its share price almost five-bagging since the depths of 2010. Dividend recovery has been idiosyncratic, with the company paying special dividends as and when it saw fit — but the cash return was impressive. Now analysts are forecasting effective yields of 6.3% this year and 7.1% next, and though the share price has soared to 1,563p, it’s still on a forward P/E of only 11, dropping to less than 10 on 2016 forecasts. What's the best way to benefit from reinvesting dividends like these over the long term?
