|Anyone have any views on TWOD's bonds maturing 7.2.12 apparently yioelding 26.51%pa???|
|There's a new thread and in case you hadn't noticed, there's a reason why there's no July, August and September on your chart.
It's not TWOD anymore
It's TW. now.
|Anyone reckon this coming off the bottom...?
Here's a snapshot just now. Just came up on a scan.|
|Another homebuilder expects to be in line with expectation.
Home builders aren't doing that bad at all, the recent sell off surprised me....
Redrow treads water
an ADVFN competitor
Housebuilder Redrow said it expects its full-year performance to be in line with its expectations.
Total forward sales to June were up over 6% at 2,148 homes.
The company also said the average selling price for the year was about £160,000 and operating margins are anticipated to be in line with its expectations.
Redrow added that its mixed use and regeneration activities recorded a number of successes during the year and delivered a strong second half performance.
The company also named Alan Bowkett non-executive chairman with immediate effect, succeeding Jim Martin who will retire on September 11th.
Bowkett is currently chairman of aerospace and safety products group Seton House|
Newly-formed housebuilder Taylor Wimpey (TW.) got a mixed reception from analysts. ABN Amro started its coverage of the UK's largest housebuilder with a "buy" stance, and cited a possible cash return and attractive valuation as bull points. However, Citigroup disagreed, due to concerns over a market slowdown as a result of higher borrowing costs. It downgraded its position to "hold" from "buy" and slashed its target price to 415p from 490p. The shares closed 4.5p lower at 372.5|
|Thanks, I do want to agree that stocks in this sector are at present
undervalued considering their past performance.
However, I think the subprime issue is not helping matters. General market
overdue for correction and when the correction eventually comes, will they
still not be further hit. That is my fear.|
I wasn't aware of the TW. BB, I have just had look and not too impressed, I would rather wait till the few regulars here move on to the new TW. BB.
Your question is best answered by someone with more knowledge, such as Judge, IMO TW. is way undervalued and should really be in the £5+
Sorry if I am not much of help.|
|Markpun why are you not posting on the TW. board. I do not know anything
about Wimpey but TWOD I am very familiar with.
Can you pls advise on the share price. I am wondering how they arrived at
the current range. What price would you consider cheap if I may ask.
I am not sure if to follow the Wimpey historical price.
|So who do we beleive...bloody analysts.....
ABN Amro initiates coverage of Taylor Wimpey (TW.L) with a buy and has a buy for Morgan Sindall (MGNS.L), raising estimates|
|The newly merged builder is cut to hold from buy with a 415p a share price target, down from 490p, by Citigroup|
Can you pls give me the epic for Taylor Wimpey.
|Glad they are in the blue just like to know why?|

Mortgage lending up 8% in May say banks Published: 07:00 Sunday 01 July 2007
By David Campbell, New Model Adviser News Reporter
Overall mortgage lending in May was up 8% on the same period of 2006 to £19.7 billion, British Bankers' Association (BBA) figures have shown.
The figures (http://www.bba.org.uk/bba/jsp/polopoly.jsp?d=145&a=9769) were the highest since November and reflected high levels of remortgaging said the BBA, as well as a traditional market bounce in early summer.
Total mortgage approvals rose just 2%, or 204,800, compared to the year before however with an average value of £157,100, 13% up on May 2006.
Underlying net mortgage lending rose £5.8 billion, up from April's increase of £5.1 billion, while annual growth remained steady at 14%.
'Contrary to the recent stable trend, the banks' gross and net mortgage lending strengthened in May,' said BBA director of statistics David Dooks.
'Because of strong approvals in May, the banks' higher market share is likely to continue over the next couple of months.'
Credit card lending fell £0.4 billion over the month, while borrowing on personal loans and overdrafts fell £0.1 billion.|

Housebuilders: what the analysts say
Wednesday June 27, 2007
Simon Brown of Evolution Securities said that today's warning of a UK housing slowdown from George Wimpey and Taylor Woodrow explained why a rival hadn't tried to disrupt their merger.
"The US is clearly very difficult. No wonder Persimmon has not come charging into the fray to bid for one or other of these companies, as US results appear to be heading inexorably downwards," he said.
Mr Brown advised investors to sit back and watch, even though Taylor Woodrow's forward sales figure for the second half of 2007 is up 10%, against the outlook of 5% at Wimpey.
"The merger of these two businesses will help to solve specific cost and land issues but there is no guarantee that the enlarged group will not fall into its bad habits of volume-driven growth, instead of adding value, once all that can be derived from the merger in immediate costs and benefits is dissipated," he warned.|
