Forgot all about the continuation vote - wouldn't fancy being a seller in this market tho.

Always been a fan of the differentiation St Chris's brings, but worth noting the office exposure within that has been a drag:

"The mixed-use asset at St Christopher's Place, London produced a total return of 0.1 per cent as it continues to recover post Covid. A marginally negative capital performance of -1.5 per cent was driven by the holding's exposure to the office sector, which makes up circa 16 per cent of the asset's capital value."


"The performance of the Company's office holdings was the main drag on performance, as the sector delivered negative capital growth of -7.5 per cent and a total return of -4.6 per cent."

BCPT also said this in September:

"The main drag on performance has been the portfolio's exposure to the office sector, particularly select regional office markets and those buildings on shorter leases. Although the Company decided to reduce its office exposure through the sale of Cassini House in 2021, and while our office assets have generally been backed by positive tenant demand, overall sentiment to this sector of the market cannot be ignored. The Manager is therefore reviewing the portfolio weighting and is actively looking to further reduce the Company's office exposure. "

Been nothing since, but any decent sales might give them a boost.

A struggle to see why BCPT should take my money rather than something else tho - looks decent value near 60p but true of a great many others as well.

Interesting Sunday Times piece on West End office outlook. Could argue it's in the price, but you'd have to make that same argument on a lot of the REITs. ie par is not the starting point for valuations.

Thanks @nickrl, good point re divi. Usually raised to cover errors elsewhere! Really should be preserving cash with office outlook so uncertain.

Do like BCPT, but agree it's currently too opaque.

More needs to be made of the fees - on all these REITs. Small in the scheme of fake-y NAV, huge when seen in context of rental income. Heads they win, tails you lose.

Assuming the BoE rises the rate again next month, as they will most likely stupidly do so, there could indeed be another hit coming for BCPT.
I think I shall carry on buildng up on cheap NBPE (the ex-divi is soon) then splurge on BCPT next month.

Let's time the market! :)

I will surely be wrong, as usual, but there is fun in trying.

To be fair, they do say prominently that they are paid for the note; but the logic of the upbeat tone is not too dubious.
I mean compared to the paid research on UTL, which we both now follow for fun. :)

The extra 0.5% by the BoE today is surely not helping BCPT either.

Chart looks ominous doesn't it.

I deliberately don't read paid-for research - Kepler, Edison - is bound to influence me on the bullish side.

Difficult to know how much recession risk is priced in to BCPT down here, or how bad recession will be, or whether St Chris's will counter falls elsewhere. Big thing for all the REITs for me is what happens when the CVAs start coming through, empty rates kick in etc. Not much sign of that yet.

Not in it, but BCPT has held up a lot better than many others - not sure why.

Hopefully a nice little earner, I topped up about the same price...with a bit of luck decent capital growth with regular dividends. Be interested to see if they take advantage of depressed prices and add to the portfolio
