Share price is indicating a NAV near 900p surely can’t be right

Hold or buy the stock do nut sell the stock BLND . This is going to multi bag very soon and fill everyone’s pockets with many pieces. To tell you the sort of information I know is that every mosque in London is on this as well as LAND. Think about that, if highly intelligent people who go to mosques are interested then it’s time to get on board!!!!

I thought this morning's AGM statement was broadly OK, but maybe the retail comment has spooked the market a little?

Right you are. I am still struggling to understand the point of buy backs. Buying 3% of the share capital should mean that at the end of the year there will be about 3% less shares in existence but the dividend is an amount paid per share. So no effect on dividend growth. The company pays out 3% less in dividends - I wonder what the rental loss from selling Broadgate is 3%?. Share price will wander around according to many factors one of which is the lower number of share in existence.

shieldbug - I can't equate a 3% cash dividend with the 3% buyback. Their delegated broker is buying every day so must be simply absorbing selling on SETS. The buyback does increase nav per share by about 3% but doesn't automatically affect the share price

Following sale of 5 Broadgate for £1b (50% owned by BL) BL to splurge up to £200m on a cash buy back. Roughly 3% of market cap on current prices. So with the proposed dividend rise of 3% this year, effective dividend rise after buy back completion would be 6% for this year. Less of course any dividend lost by directors remuneration.

The money that Asian buyers are spending on office blocks in the City of London has reached a record high, as capital from Hong Kong and China pours into Britain. About £3.4 billion of Asian capital has been invested in City offices this year, according to Savills, the property consultancy. That is 70 per cent of the total volume and a record high for the first six months of a year. - The Times (from ADVFN news)

Great stuff, speeds! PW has a knack of getting in early on future news, though it does miss the target quite often. One thing about such a merger, I can't think of any reason why competition questions should crop up. Ads the article suggests, it would have to be 'nil-premium', though the result could well have smaller discount.

There’s never been a better time for British Landsec - HTTPS://www.propertyweek.com/leader/theres-never-been-a-better-time-for-british-landsec/5096863.article OK, so it’s not a new topic of conversation, but it’s one of the property industry’s most intriguing ones, and I make no apology for returning to it. Over the past 25 years, I have interviewed every chief executive of both British Land and Landsec – from Landsec’s Sir Peter Hunt and British Land’s Sir John Ritblat to Rob Noel and Chris Grigg today. But during that quarter of a century, not one of them has given me a straight answer to the straight question: when will the two of you merge? Last week, I got my chance to put the question, for the umpteenth time, to Grigg. On previous occasions, he did what all the others had done and knocked me back with some adept media training techniques. I was so accustomed to the non-answers that I was half way through my next question before it clicked. Grigg said something different this time. He did not hit the ball back across the net with a tonne of spin. Let’s not get over-excited. Grigg did not say he was in talks with Noel to create a £14bn property giant. Far from it. But he did say that if it made sense for shareholders, British Land would “seriously consider” it. Well, that’s something – and ‘British Landsec’ makes more sense now than it ever has. Even the maths add up. Now is one of those rare occasions when it would be a genuine merger of equals. Landsec has fallen from its £10bn market value a couple of years back, while British Land has enjoyed a decent period in comparison. Both companies are valued at nearly £7bn. There would be no senior partner in the talks. The firms’ respective portfolios also continue to fit. Landsec may have improved its presence in the City of London, but British Land trumps it there. Likewise, Landsec dominates in the West End, where British Land has grown, but not to an extent to rival Landsec. On retail, where Landsec has been hurt by overpaying for Bluewater and British Land has remained stable, getting together could protect the merged company in property’s most volatile arena. When it comes to the trendy sectors of flexible workspace and build-to-rent, Noel could learn a thing or two from Grigg. In other words, while each firm has become more like the other, they also cancel out each other’s weaknesses. There’s one more element to my gossipmongering. Both Grigg and Noel have been in their jobs for a long time (nine and seven years respectively). Surely there’s no better legacy for either of them to leave than British Landsec? It would be a UK property company that could, for the first time, genuinely compete on a global stage. They would form a company with a portfolio value approaching £30bn, and an equity base that would propel British Landsec towards becoming a top 25 global REIT. Marriage of convenience However, any merger would be a defensive play and while the market has long called for it, now may not be the time to force through such a marriage of convenience. Hammerson’s failed attempt to buy intu earlier this year certainly does not inspire much confidence. But Grigg, the only boss of either firm to get even close to answering my favourite question, has got me thinking. Perhaps. Just perhaps.

I'm looking to add to my holding somewhere around 620. Not sure it will get there. On Friday it looked like we were going to have a bad day on FTSE and that was possible. I might choose LAND instead.

Rec'd a bounce after the Klepierre/Hammerson bid; but since then, the further bad news from the retail sector and the halving of New Look stores rents, has hit the whole commercial property sector. Sp has fallen back into the arms of seeming support in the 630/650p range. Barring a serious fall this coming week, the sector will likely turn around again. Some great value around with the NAV discounts and high yields.

Regrettably this is sliding, sliding and the share buy-back has finished. Will it go back to 600, so I can buy-back the ones I sold. Well I hope not, but right now it does look like it might be on the cards

Well this is beginning to look very good. Just a pity I let go quite a few to pay my capital gains tax bill. Whole sector going up too

We can't lose on this trade on a long term basis. Just sit back, collect the dividend and wait for the market to re-consider it's position on the large discount to NAV.
