Commenting, Nick Thompson, Chairman of Picton, said:
"We have continued to deliver results which have outperformed and it is
particularly pleasing to deliver positive NAV growth, despite European
Referendum headwinds and the one-off effect of the Chancellor's hike in stamp
duty in March. This demonstrates the quality of our portfolio, the success of
our strategy and its implementation over the period."
An interim dividend of 0.825 pence per share is declared in respect of the
period 1 January 2016 to 31 March 2016 (1 October 2015 to 31 December 2015:
The dividend will be paid on 31 May 2016 to shareholders on the register on 13
May 2016. The ex-dividend date is 12 May 2016...
...The Group has 22 million zero dividend preference shares which it intends to
repay at maturity in October 2016. Picton has considered the potential of a
conversion of ZDPs into ordinary shares, but has concluded this is not a viable
option in the current market. It currently has GBP10.2 million of undrawn
facilities, more than GBP95 million of uncharged property assets, and existing
cash resources to facilitate the repayment. As such the Group has agreed terms
in principle for a new five year debt facility, to meet the ZDP liability,
which will be subject to usual due diligence before being finalised.|

|I am still very overweight on property stocks, Skyship. I had already sold my holding in CAL and I still have holdings in SLI, CREI, RGL and UAI, so a modicum of portfolio adjustment is in order. They have done very well for me and I am sure that my good fortune last year was to be overweight in property and virtually zero weight in resource stocks.|
|I still think commercial property represents good value as interest rates aren't going to climb fast, so propcos can borrow at 3% and invest for 6%. Elementary. For pension funds both direct property and property companies must be near top of their agenda.|
|Seems a sensible move. Many propcos have seen sharp falls; take a look at Industry bellwether stock BLND - down from a high of 880p to the current 717p where they are on a 19.4% discount and yield 3.95%! 18.5% down from their peak, so pretty close to bear market territory!|
|Huge buying but no increase in price. Waiting to get back in again.|
|One thing that caught my eye in the interims was that as of Sept 2015 IPD All Property Capital values were 22% below their June 2007 peak as I was surprised that still so far down from 2007 figures.
Yes interesting that trading at a discount again..and I would be surprised if the NAV has gone down since Sept 30 after taking into account the dividend.|
|And right now you can buy them at below NAV. Special offer, 2p off!|
|Half Yearly Report - HTTP://www.investegate.co.uk/picton-prop-inc-ltd--pctn-/prn/half-yearly-report/20151118070000P968A/
"We remain positive about our outlook, but are mindful of potential external risks to the property market, such as the threat of sharply rising interest rates, although unlikely in the short-term. With long-dated bond yields currently close to 2% and property yields at 5%, there remains a healthy premium in favour of the real estate sector, which has the additional advantage of income growth potential."|
|Clearly the fall is 100% Market related – take a look at others in the Header on the CP+ thread (link below); and see the chart overlaid with SREI & UKCM:

|a few reits also dropped similar amounts. anyone here sold? from what ive read recently on propertyweek.com the commercial market is ticking along nicely, in fact from an article last Friday fund managers and advisors have increased their forecasts for this years returns.|
|Quite a sizeable drop in PCTN in the last couple of days to levels not seen since Jan this yr. Is this just falling with the wider market or does anyone know of any company specific reasons for the drop?
AFAICS the last quoted NAV (to 30/6/15) was 70.8p so the shares would now appear to be tradng at a discount to NAV for the first time in quite a while. PCTN should of course be updating the NAV (to 30/9/15) in mid Oct.|
|Share buys still up but no real movement. A breakout| soon?|
|added today. Cannot find % of institutional shareholders Investec 17% Hambro 5%..
People piling into this share.|
|Yes, in demand again. Looks like it has bottomed out for now and is back on the rise.|
