|I'd hate to be on the wrong side of today's 14% rise.|
|Too true. Two farms or three?|
|Buy land my son. They've stopped making it.|
|Property prices have been falling for 18 months in London.Europe is in a state of collapse and we are 2 years into a 17 year cyclical downward property trend.The business will need to be 'solid' as the property crash 'global' starts to unravel here.|
|Very positive. Sign of an extremely well managed company with a truly global marketplace.|
|Surprisingly strong performance. But still rightly cautious for coming year.
The Group experienced a strong finish to the year with the completion of significant volumes of commercial and residential transactions in a number of our businesses around the world and benefited from further sterling devaluation. Accordingly, the Group now anticipates that underlying results for the year to 31 December 2016 will be meaningfully ahead of our previous expectations|
|We will continue to decline as the market weakens into November!|
|Reevaluate your position here all.The Big Dipper is pointing southwards here?|
|Foxtons revenues fall by 35%!!!We are about to see further erosion here very soon here too.It's going down.|
|Funny, chart looks as though it's going uphill to me.
Maybe this helped:

|Downhill all,the way.Major markets have crashed in New York, Chicago and Florida.Sweden's real estate has imploded over the last 3 moths and London has been in a downward spiral for the last 15 months.This is going to get a hell of a lot worse here, and do not expect this to get any better as the global recession that is about to engulf us all.......?As I've said its downhill all the way here.....|
|It's pretty much downhill from here.The London property markets started crashing a year ago and it's just going to quicken this year.Kendonagasaki is short here.|

|* Estate agent Savills up c.5 pct & 3rd top FTSE midcap gainer <.FTMC> as Citi raises rating to "buy" from "neutral"
* Brokerage flags co trading at c.20 pct discount to long term historic avg share price & limited exposure to the UK makes it attractive
* Co gets only about 1/3 of its rev from the UK as it has been increasingly diversifying and now has reduced exposure to the UK deals advisory market, Citi says|
|Analysts finally getting around to reading the interims?!|
|Nice bump up this morning. Can't immediately see the reason.|
|Half year report surprised me with it's strength.
Much more than an estate agency this business|
|this from the company factsheet
We have established a major presence in Americas, Europe, Asia Pacific and Africa employing 30,000 people across a network of over 700 offices worldwide.
We are the UK's leading agency group by turnover.
We are the number four global agent by world turnover; and number four European agent by European turnover.
Throughout our international network of over 700 offices, we offer a range of expertise which covers all the key segments of residential, office, industrial, retail, leisure, healthcare, rural and hotel property, and mixed use development schemes.
This is much more than a uk facing business.|
|Disappointing day today given the rest of the sector have seen 5%+ gains today.|
|Can see 350p a share here with continued shenanigans from Brexit over the coming 2-3 years.
THE GRAVY DAYS ARE OVER !|
|International real estate advisory firm Savills announced a fresh investment on Friday, confirming that is proprietary investment subsidiary Grosvenor Hill Ventures has taken a minority stake in YOPA Property, by participating in its £16m equity fundraising.
The FTSE 250 firm said YOPA's fundraising was to fund the rollout of its "online hybrid estate agency" in the high-volume segment of the UK market.
It said YOPA was founded in 2014 and has since developed its technology-led business model, which was launched in hybrid form in January 2016.
The company's operations use digital technology to link the activities of sellers, buyers and YOPA's own franchised local property agents, supported by a dedicated customer service centre.
Savills confirmed YOPA will continue to operate independently, under its existing brand.
"We have followed the rapid advance of the online 'hybrid' estate agency model over the last year," said Savills Group chief executive Jeremy Helsby.
"This investment broadens the Group's access to the UK residential sector by enabling us to take an interest in the high volume segment of the market, comprising over one million transactions annually, to which Savills has had little exposure to date.
"We have been consistently impressed by YOPA, whose technological edge, dedication to transparency and focus on the client at the heart of the sales process all resonate strongly with our core values and the way we do business," Helsby explained|
|Pretty good despite Brexit and US election.
Savills confirmed UK commercial and residential property activity has slowed in the run up to the UK's European Union referendum, but that its expectations for the year remain unchanged.
The FTSE 250 estate agent said the first four months typically represent a small element of the full outturn for the year.
In UK commercial, Savills said it continued to maintain a significant share of the Prime UK investment and leasing markets, while in residential the boost in activity ahead of the Stamp Duty increase last month has since tailed off.
US activity has also eased off, with political uncertainty blamed ahead of the presidential race.
US property investment market volumes have dipped, but its predominantly occupier-related business has traded marginally ahead of expectations and continued to expand through its recruitment programme.
Asia Pacific has traded in line with expectations, with good Hong Kong and China trading offsetting slower activity in Japan.
Continental Europe was also in line as Ireland, France, Sweden and the Netherlands provide strong growth, although Savills did attribute some current volume pressure from the uncertainty surrounding "Brexit".
Globally, the consultancy and property management businesses generated continued revenue growth, with particular strengths in the UK and Asia. whole|
|Should settle some nerves.
China some downside offset by Europe.|
|Commenting on the results, Jeremy Helsby, Group Chief Executive, said:
"Overall in 2015, Savills delivered a record performance across the Group. Our US expansion programme continued well and our Asia Pacific business showed resilience in the face of changeable markets. In the UK the strength of our position in the commercial market offset market weakness in the residential sector. The Continental European business continued to build profitability and Savills Investment Management substantially enhanced its position with the acquisition of SEB Asset Management AG.
We have made a good start to 2016 with a solid pipeline of business carried over from last year in many markets, although the impact of global macro-economic and political concerns on real estate markets worldwide is uncertain.
At this stage, we retain a cautious view on some Asian markets, particularly the Tier 2 Chinese cities, and we expect the UK residential and commercial investment markets to be subdued, for the former, as Stamp Duty reforms take effect and, more generally, in the run up to the EU referendum in June.
However, the strength of our enlarged US operation, the increased size of our Investment Management, Property Management and Consultancy businesses and the breadth of our UK business together with further improvement in Continental Europe, all bode well for the future of your Company. Accordingly, the Board's expectations for the year as a whole remain unchanged."|
