kenmitch: 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.
dr_smith: kenmitch. Interesting comment, but for clarity, I didn't say "Buybacks don't mean a floor for the share price."
kenmitch: 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!
barnesian: "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.
cwa1: Why I'm bullish about BDEV:-
cwa1: Well that doesn't seem as awful as the recent share price weakness seemed to suggest. Shame it has come on a market fret day though. Still, onwards and hopefully upwards.
salver2: You know as well as I do that the graph of the share price is not your argument!
woodhawk: Dunno what the yield is now, but it's 10% more than it was a couple of weeks ago at this ridiculously low share price. I'm buying.
nav_mike: One broker view isnt much in itself, but perhaps its one reason, the share price fizzled yesterday on apparently good figures? 1334 GMT - Barratt Developments is a riskier investment than its peers due to its higher sensitivity to weak pricing--a consequence of lower returns--as well as its less robust financial position, says Shore Capital. Despite this, Barratt is less over-bought than its large-cap peers, says Shore, and hence closer to its fair value of 520 pence. "We remain cautious and remain at sell although with less conviction than six months ago," says Shore, which sees better value in the mid-caps or material supply chains for investors who want exposure to the housing sector. Shares are down 2.3% to 555 pence. (
