Plans to redress the Leasehold scandal on new build homes... Leading developers sign leasehold reform pledge, but critics claim it’s ‘cobbled together’ "For existing leaseholds, developers have promised to help them move to RPI-indexed rises in ground rent regardless of whether they have previously asked to amend their leaseholds or not. The pledge also requires developers not to insert onerous clauses in future agreements, and ensure details of each leasehold are represented in a ‘fair and transparent way’. Developers have also agreed to put in place both appropriate complaints and redress schemes to reassure leaseholders that any future problems are dealt with appropriately." https://thenegotiator.co.uk/leading-developers-sign-leasehold-reform-pledge-but-will-it-work/

I think you're quite right about the bubble. So many factors that are going to cause trouble. Rough calcs but I'm predicting a drop across the board for big builders from October.

Barratts property management known as BRAM has merged with First Point. Surprising there was no announcement today

I think your wrong buywell mortgage repayments are at their lowest for years - this is still undervalued even after its large rise lately -repayments on a 3 bed property in Northampton for example worth 200 grand say with ten per cent down and 180 mortgage - repayments of not much more than 100 pound a week- without wishing to sound condescending you must try to understand the property market - you mostly only read about the two bed London apartment that was 700 grand and now is 625-that is not where most of the builders are!!

This looks like it has got ahead of itself since Dec 2018 We have a UK property market bubble going pop as I uncork We have a Brexit nightmare show that now looks set to run for another 12 months minimum Then we have an election and/or a referendum ... again And then repeat ad infinitum ... the tw@ta can't decide anything except how to fill in their expenses claims

If you take the last 2 years dividends these are basically at an all time high - I think it’s fair to say you’ve been embarrassingly wrong !

Critics of the Help-to-Buy scheme say the initiative has created a housing bubble and that housebuilders’ bumper profits are undeserved. Could this lead to an unwinding of the scheme? hxxps://www.investorschampion.com/channel/money-management/help-to-buy-has-it-worked

share buybacks can support the shareprice but only if performance is maintained If performance faulters no amount of buybacks will support the shareprice and is performance really faulters then there wont be the money for buybacks! bears like me have banked profits a while ago as bulls should have at 700p ish anything here and higher is a good selling point imo

DR SMITH. I realise you didn't. I was responding to post 2042 by Barnesian who did. A lot of investors make the mistake of believing buybacks put a floor under the share price so I thought it worth a reminder that they don't. They DO mean higher eps (good for Director bonus pay if those are based on eps) and DO obviously reduce the number of shares in issue, which can help maintain or give higher future dividends.

kenmitch. Interesting comment, but for clarity, I didn't say "Buybacks don't mean a floor for the share price."

Buybacks don't mean a floor for the share price. If they did it would be a guaranteed way to invest successfully. There are many examples of Companies buying back their shares and seeing subsequent and sometimes immediate share price falls. For two current examples look no further than Standard Life Aberdeen SLA and NUMIS NUM. Standard Life started their buybacks with share well over £4 and despite buying back almost daily the share dropped fast to £2.40. Also buybacks won't save the share price from falls if there's a profits warning/downbeat trading update. e.g BP share crashed on Gulf of Mexico news despite then recent £20 billion buyback and yesterday NUMIS fell 30p on downbeat AGM trading update. There are pros and cons for buybacks but a floor on the share price is NOT a given!

Have others noticed "Forecast" dropping out from advfn co info? hTTps://uk.webfg.com/equity/Barratt_Developments I think it started a week or so ago, I first assumed it was a glitch whilst updates were done, but the data is missing from each share I pick, though for IQE the forecast data has replicated several times ( seemingly a cartesian join symptom in programmer terms). Anyone know what's going on, how to bring it to attention of advfn admin?

Funny, that's the bit that jumped out on me too. Not against buybacks in concept but have seen it elsewhere seemingly be frittered away due to market manipulators and the like, so not benefiting the LTH. However, the wording here suggests it will only be when the price dips below norm and can mean LTH profit from any short attacks.

"Whilst the payment of special dividends represents the Board's preferred method of returning excess capital to shareholders, this recognises that at certain share price points, share buybacks will be in the best interest of shareholders." That suggest to me that they will support the share price by share buybacks if it falls to a certain point rather than pay special dividends. I'm guessing that that is also in the interests of directors' share price related bonuses (if they exist - I haven't checked). So a good investor strategy is to look out for share buybacks and recognise that that is probably a floor of the share price.

Results. Interesting bit about switching special dividends to share buybacks when share price gets to certain levels. I think that needs a bit more explanation.

Taffee and Porsche have been awfully quiet while this has risen nearly 30 percent in two months - Porsche will soon be having to sell his French house

"Jessica White, Chief Financial Officer, has today purchased 10,000 ordinary shares of 10 pence each in the Company." and "Peter Richard White, a PCA of Jessica White, Chief Financial Officer, has today transferred, to Jessica White, 8,088 " On first, a good sign, but there may be a job requirement to maintain a certain number/value so hard to see if it is driven by confidence or contractual obligation. On second, I don't read anything in to it, probably for family capital gain reasons. IMO. Dave
