|Agreed yogaboy. A drop expected today as ex-dividend but if it closes blue then even more bullish! What a buy this was after BREXIT! Well done to those who bought in when the price dropped drastically at that time :-)|
|I'm no expert but this looks to be moving inexorably back to six quid.|
|there is no shortage of property its a speculative bubble
|Taffee hasn't a clue, he's been spouting the same rubbish for years, and just doesn't understand there'll be a housing shortage for years to come.
Take this nonsense from 2010:

slim prospect?.....uk housing bubble is bursting and could fall 50%...tw land bank is based on lunatic prices therefore the tw business model is potentially buist.|
|BDEV is ex-dividend this Thursday so expect a decline in share price as a result on the day: Https://www.ig.com/uk/week-ahead-ig?CHID=5&QPID=13086|
|And yet the share price goes up and up|
|property market in doldrums
boom started in central London so the plunge there is significant...all this with
all the props!|
|Evidence, if any needed, that housing is still a UK priority:
Yesterday our representatives and Barratt Homes hosted a visit by Sajid Javid, Secretary of State for Communities & Local Government, accompanied by Basingstoke MP the Right Honourable Maria Miller and a number of local Councillors.
This is the second high profile visit in just over six months to this flagship development at Chapel Gate in Basingstoke. As commented on by Maria Miller at her last visit the 26-acre brownfield site fits well into current government plans to make good use of previously developed land. Mrs Miller also said: ‘The government’s housing priority is to deliver more affordable homes to buy and to rent, and this joint working between Sentinel Housing Association and Barratt’s helps to achieve this.’|
|Building firms always fit crumby boilers. I don't really see any change in what's been happening over the past 10 years apart from regulations and inspections getting stricter|
|Is the UK about to have a district heating scandal? One needs to ask if house builders and Heat providers are cashing in on installing incorrect heat specification generating extra cash?|
Good content. Thanks.
Despite all of the negative press on house builders, in the recent past, I have held onto mine. I don't see any reason to sell at the present time.|
|Quite happy to remain a shareholder here and benefit from the growth and dividends/capital returns. With projects like the one below I think we should be fine.
Ed McCoy, Sales Director at Barratt London, said: “We are very excited to be celebrating this stage in the building programme for Lombard Wharf. We hope the building will be a great addition to this part of the riverside and its iconic design together with its location, just a short walk from Clapham Junction, should also make it very popular with those looking to move into the area.“
Last November, Lombard Wharf was Highly Commended in the 'Best Design for Four Storeys or More category at the Housebuilder Awards.
PS. Not that I rate DB given all their supposed financial issues this piece is also positive for BDEV:

Its sector top picks are Barratt Developments (LON:BDEV), Taylor Wimpey (LON:TW.) and the aforementioned McCarthy & Stone.
Unfortunately you will have to edit the two spaces out of the link above if you want to see it as ADVFN are censoring it :-( Obviously a bit dated now as before the budget early last month.|
|Fair do's taffee, you are giving open and honest opinion. We always need both sides of the coin. I hope that you are wrong or at least right, but not until I get another 20% out of this badboy|
|Long and strong here. Brexit or not...Will only reconsider at 600p.Great company.|
|Everyone has different views that's the joy of share trading and investing.... If shares drop and property does too then cash earning little or no interest effectively increases in value|
|had an agent value on our house On Friday. he reports market strong.
as far as the stock market goes, caution necessary. but if I was as pessimistic as Taffee I would have missed the rise since December last year since when the portfolio is up by over 10%. there is a also risk to your future wealth in not being in the market.|
|Average repayments on a 250 k house with 10 percent deposit less than 20 pounds a day - extraordinarily cheap - house prices outside London probably undervalued - chew that over taffee|
|How ridiculous..... Hindsight sharedealing
Is easy... You should be pleased you made 20%
Return....my negativity is based on a good deal of
Facts...interest rates are 1/4% because things are
Really BAD and the housing crisis is a speculative bubble
Created by cheap credit and props which can unravel
Anytime just like oil and commodities and the
This is the second longest bull mkt in history
And stocks were only more overpriced in 1929 and1999|
|I agree with salver2, sorry taffee, but your? negativity is the reason I took my profits out at 20%, when I could still be holding at around 40%. I have decided to stop listening to rampers and derampers and just DMOR|
|Only if you sell is it a profit|
|And yes they fell on your spurious fundamentals and now they are back where they should be delighting people like myself who bought even more after brexit when they could see the stupidity!!|
|Lol! Us bears banked good money on the recent 50% fall.
Mortgage rates are likely to rise after US rate hikes.
If you believe the UK property bubble will go on forever and the base rate will stay 0.25% forever then more fool you
This is also second longest bull run in history and stocks only more overpriced in 1929 and 1999
Good luck getting out if it crashes when brokers don't answer phones and their website mysteriously crashes|
|Imsurprised we haven't heard from toffee and his likes as this goes up - show some fight boys - you have now been taking a kicking for at least 6 years - ohbythe way a new .99 percent mortgage has just been launched - but what if rates go up I hear you bleat !!!!|
|wow, BDEV doing well on a bad day in market.|
