I think we have to remember that at its heart Boot is a semi-private mini-conglomerate - there's a lot of family interest in the shares and they are quite happy not smashing it out of the park. So the company doesn't do radical MBA type strategic manoeuvres. Arguably, the shares over-achieved ratings-wise under the previous CEO as he had a winning personality and was able to big up the company to the relatively few institutional investors willing to take an interest. His replacement is less engaging and the market is taking a more sober view. As for the land supply business - the company's "super-strength" - the previous CEO was blessed to be there when house prices were booming and owners of land had the advantage, and while I don't think land reform will hugely change the picture - owners and developers are still going to have to ensure their land is chosen over other parcels - house prices have stalled and the market is more in equilibrium. TLDR - the boom times are over and I don't see the internal catalyst for the rating to improve.

One of the many irrationalities of the stock market - share price falls in advance because everyone expects a profit warning, and then falls again when the the warning is confirmed. Of course, this all provides a good opportunity for patient investors with a long time horizon, but I agree that BOOT will probably remain weak for the next year or so.

The Times (Tempus share tips): HOLD National Express; BUY Henry Boot. BootComplex operating models don't often play well with investors but this land promoter-come-housebuilder-come-industrial property developer has no plans to break up its multi-layered business. Why should it, asks Tim Roberts, chief executive. Henry Boot's total shareholder return in the past 20, 10 and 2 years has beaten the FTSE All-Share over each period.There is less risk from operating in more than one segment of the property market, too, he reckons. But performance is still more heavily linked to the fluctuating fortunes of the economy than companies operating in many other sectors, as the sharp underperformance of the index in the decade after the 2007 market crash and months after the Brexit referendum attest.Post-pandemic, that's been a boon. Pre-tax profit more than doubled last year. That prompted Numis, the brokerage, to raise its forecast for this year by 7 per cent to £47.5 million, from £35.1 million last year.The strength of the housing market benefits the business in two ways. First, via the average selling price it can achieve on the houses it builds and sells via its joint venture Stonebridge Homes brand, which 72 per cent pre-let or forward sold for this year. Like peers, the housebuilding business has suffered from planning delays, but an increase in land with planning permission means it has raised its completion target to 200 this year, from 120 last year. Second, its land promotion business, which sells oven-ready plots to housebuilders, benefits from a rise in the average gross profit per plot, which grew by a fifth last year.Housing demand and inflation could cool this year, but even if sales prices are running at a mid-single digit rate then that should be enough to offset the impact of rising costs, Roberts reckons. This year the impact of inflation should be net neutral, he thinks, with about 89 per cent of its development costs fixed. Ferocious demand for industrial and logistics assets - 75 per cent of its development pipeline - should also protect profit against rising inflation.Plans to put more cash into new developments this year could bring returns on capital close towards its 10 to 15 per cent target range.Advice BuyWhy Rising net asset value growth could drive further recovery in the shares

Investors Chronicle article today on BOOT including the chatter for possible merger with Harworth

I think that's the end point - Nick Roditi will eventually merge BOOT with Harworth

Small snippet from this week's IC comment on results:-

But how should investors value this business? Inventories,which include the strategic land bank, are worth just under two-thirds of shareholder equity, meaning book value will act as something of an anchor. But a 7 per cent premium to Numis’ 2022 year-end net asset value (NAV) estimate has narrowed and looks skinny given diverse options for growth, rising consensus earnings forecasts and negligible gearing. Buy.

Thanks guys. Not sure why this didn't show up as rns on the sites I checked. Including financial Times.
2018? No concerns for me. The BoD have sensibly established a reputation for under promising and significantly over delivering.
I feel sure Simon Thompson at Investors chronicle will give the share price a further boost.
Onwards and upwards....
