Thanks for the view and luck with your holding. The two main concerns for me are Labour taking power, and/or a hard Brexit.

Essential - Not sure there is much to get from the results - I would recommend watching the presentation and questions to get an better idea of the strategy. I see this as a value turnaround opportunity and looking at 5 to 10 years of dividends plus growth. An early (partial) re-rating is possible with Brexit resolution - so probably not any time soon.

Is there anything in those results to prompt a sustained re-rating anytime soon.. I'm not sure there is.

Agreed about EPS for asset-backed companies. BLND give a pretty clear coverage of underlying and EPRA, though. I'm moderately happy to follow their strategy and hold on to the few shares I've got.

The strategic advantages of managing campuses and multi-let spaces is a good one but it is likely to be costly. Combining Offices and Retail businesses into one Real Estate team is looking increasingly sensible. I don't think EPS means anything with a REIT. Changes in NAV are something to take note of but they do not necessarily represent earnings (or losses). Consolidated net rental is down 7.6%. Haven't calculated it but would expect this is mainly due to net property sales. They say like for like rent is up £15m but that would be for the group and would not include the fund. Dividend up 3% + £125m buy back.

I've only scanned through the FY results, but they aren't alarming. With a nav of 905p, a discount of 37% looks excessive. Retail maybe not as bad as feared on a valuation basis. https://www.investegate.co.uk/british-land-co-plc/blnd/final-results/201905150700120373Z/

Waikenchan - that's why ETFs are not great for property investing. I prefer to pick REITs and know what I am investing in.

The BLND share of the transaction was £193.5m and after paying off loans etc they get £95m. If this is a correct reading these properties were quite highly levered - about 50%. So while they were quality investments it does help overall with balance sheet. Hoping proceeds used for developing Canada Water which should be in advanced stage of planning now.

“Our Retail portfolio is focused on Regional and Local multi-let centres, and accounts for 49% of our portfolio.” Looks in line with the strategy to me (whether you agree with it or not). Logically they should also be looking to sell the remaining superstore assets (6 or 1.3% GAV).

Agreed, but I'm still struggling to align myself with their strategy. They have a blue chip customer who is unlikely to default and I think it unlikely supermarkets are going to fall in value over an extended period of time. One can discuss on-line shopping but the recent evidence is that on-line supermarket shopping is now falling in percentage terms. So, whilst I can get my head round the desire to reduce the retail percentage from half to a third I'm not sure this is one of the parts I'd want to sell. Of course the directors know the business better than me. Perhaps it's the malls they need to sell really but they are struggling to sell these for NAV so are looking at this instead? It doesn't leave me inspired as a shareholder. Oh and if they are just going to use the cash to buy back shares that doesn't inspire me either. I guess it feels like a deal for the sake of a deal because they have committed to reducing retail as the city boys have told them the share price will go up if they do that. Nevertheless it's neither here nor there in terms of BLND overall. I'll continue to sit in the trade, collect my dividend and hope one day we fix Brexit and it will go up 20% overnight.

It's clear in terms of their previous statements, intention is the shrink the % of retail holdings. They are selling what they can in retail, provided the price is right.

Yup - so it's not just me! But at £200m out of a total £13bn portfolio it's no great isuse.

I can't say I get this deal either. There's nothing wrong with it, but I'm not really sure of the motivation despite the RNS to help me. Looking at the share price the City don't seem bothered either. I guess for the moment I'll just have to trust the directors expertise is much greater than mine. Not really how I like to invest...

JV sale, 12 Sainsbury's superstores. This summarises their realignment, though I'd have thought supermarkets were the safer end of retail: This is the latest example of how we are delivering against our clear long-term strategy to build an increasingly mixed-use business focused on three core elements: campus focused London offices; a smaller, refocused Retail business and Residential, principally build to rent. As part of this, we expect Retail to comprise c.30-35% of the assets of our business, down from around half today. https://www.investegate.co.uk/british-land-co-plc--blnd-/rns/disposal-of-sainsbury-s-superstores/201904230700067098W/

I agree totally.The cost or returns for retailers is crippleing. A lot a dropping a free service and passing it on to the customer. This is not going down well.High street shopping where you can try on, have adrink and bite to eat will come back strong.It will take a while but will happe.
