Its Time To Buy - "Prew said he was repealing his “uniquely contrarian bear call” after five years, as the economic consequences of Covid-19 “purge legacy asset over valuation so NAVs get credible again”." 2nd April 2020 - hxxps://www.egi.co.uk/news/jefferies-prew-says-its-time-to-buy/ In a Property Week article (April 2019) Mike Prew observed that "London office ‘densification’ has seen average space per office worker shrink from 100 sq ft to 80 sq ft over 20 years with more to go."

They haven't got a clue and are always behind the curve anyway. They'll probably wait for it to drop 50p and then have a target of 250p.

So look at this: JEFFERIES CUTS BRITISH LAND PRICE TARGET TO 424 (444) PENCE - 'UNDERPERFORM' That was dated 3rd October 2019. So Jefferies think that British Land is more valuable post-pandemic than they did pre-pandemic?

It is very difficult IMO to find a decent investment that has cash , zero or little debt , a growth history , and most important : Is NOT being damaged by the Covid-19 Pandemic This is why we are seeing many small caps with Covid-19 related products rocketing up in value --- very few to go round --- and the punters are jumping on anything that is Covid-19 positive related re future earnings from such products. Even a new large low tech PPE manufacturer floating on the LSE right now would IMO get away quite well Something making quality washable/ disinfectable ( use 5 times to 10 times masks/capes/gloves/hats ) The throw away stuff seems to fall to bits and not give adequate staff protection Thus the Health/Medical Sector does have some benefit BUT in many companies that have expanded into adjuncts and bought abroad --- staffing and production problems have muddied the waters. Cancelled planned operations due to ICU 100% Covid-19 occupancy and other ward over-spill is hurting what were good Health/Medical Sector companies as well now. buywell thinks KISS applies. Keep it Simple Stupid dyor

When a restaurant in Manchester has 1,000 applications for one position, in just 24hrs, the word dire does not cover it. Whether government support is withdrawn in October, would doubt that one. Support may continue, in some form, into 2021. BLAND's challenges predated COVID by several years, as clearly shown by the December 2019 share price v 2015.

Agreed, the high st. is in real trouble and so are businesses. My company have just decided to tear up plans for further office space and have started putting staff at risk of redundancy. All other staff are still working from home and have no plans to return at present. Without the office worker support the town centre is dead and retail and hospitality suffering as a result. Months / years of this to come. I think the retail issues are only just beginning, I think the situation will be much worse in a few months when government support runs out and unemployment rises. Online shopping is the future and covid has brought us the future 5 years earlier than expected. There's much better investment opportunities than BLND at the moment. I can't see any positive reasons for investment at the moment.

Do the above look at charts when they pluck those numbers from the nimbus Getting monies from businesses that have failed or are failing or are about to fail in the face of further lockdowns and people not going to Shopping parks/centres but buying online or having things delivered --- it going to worsen IMO Retail is in dire trouble as this chart shows free stock charts from uk.advfn.com The above is short term free stock charts from uk.advfn.com The above is a longer term possibility if Covid-19 continues and peoples shopping habits and needs change free stock charts from uk.advfn.com The above shows in red the severity of the fall (trend) has taken a turn for the worse ie steeper Should it continue as is , then IMO blue support could be hit in 2021 All IMO dyor

Another classic ftse 100 dross company, its why you short the ftse 350 and invest in the S&P. Declining business model, evaporating dividend and probable share dilution, all points to capital destruction while trying to secure a dividend rather than capital growth. The U.K. has done such a dire job with covid and the brexit fiasco has damaged the country for years....why bother? Just buy quality in the USA and Asia, you really think fat Boris is going to turn this around. Get real.

June operational update https://www.londonstockexchange.com/news-article/BLND/june-operational-update/14598242 June rental collection rate stands at 88% offices 36% retail vs 97% and 43% for Mar qtr albeit this was at 30/4 so so not directly comparable. Retail was expected to be worse but when they say that 64% of estate is open in England it lays bare how many retailers are witholding/deferring rent currently. They are in discussion with a view to "moves to monthly rents, deferrals and partial settlement of March and June rents, typically in return for the removal of lease breaks, lease extensions, reduced incentives or commitments for additional space" You would have thought by now they would have worked a lot of this through expectations or not but other than saying we expect it to improve over the next few weeks they are silent.

Unibail Rodamco announcement seems to have firmed up the sector, especially HMSO. Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield successfully completes the disposal of five French shopping centres valued at more than €2bn Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield (URW) today announces the successful completion of the disposal of a portfolio of five shopping centres in France to the Joint Venture (JV) formed by URW, Crédit Agricole Assurances and La Française, announced on February 12, 2020. As at today, three of these centres have re-opened post the COVID-19 restrictions, showing encouraging footfall performance - with Alma in particular already at around 90% of pre-crisis levels - as well as, based on information from tenants, higher average baskets and conversion rates. The other two centres will re-open tomorrow, May 30.

Some of that assumes social distancing is a permanent feature, it's not imv. Yes there could still be significant subsequent waves. Whether companies decide they need less space is more valid.

From a couple of days ago: "The enforced national experiment in working from home could have lasting effects, as British Land chief executive Chris Grigg happily conceded. On the other hand, the group also expects “the trend towards higher density offices and hotdesking to reverse”, which also sounds correct. Surviving office workers may demand, and be granted, more elbow room to practise social distancing. The net result for landlords could be a score draw." https://www.theguardian.com/business/nils-pratley-on-finance/2020/may/27/hammerson-allows-chief-a-long-goodbye-despite-big-wrong-calls

On valuations they've been pretty aggressive in the retail group with an almost 50% increase on H1 write downs which in themselves weren't light touch. Dept stores down 40% across the year (ouch) and not sure many others have gone that far. IMO the office portfolio may suffer more setback than there eluding to but perhaps many of there tenants being financial institutions they will readily be able to tap into the liquidity sloshing around the system to avoid any collapses. With 30% of the portfolio on a lease break/expiry over next 3 years there tenants maybe able to extract some easier rental reductions is a risk but also an opportunity to lock them in. Rental is a tad higher on retail than some others have achieved for Mar qtr but with 40% of rent deferral agreed (£35m) for Mar qtr this gives an indication of what is likely in June qtr as well. Development spend commitment is 76m til completion with positive rental agreed on the ERV's but not clear what is definite lettings and still under offer on the next two big developments in build which mean potential tenants may want to renegotiate or walk away. Divi will have to be rebased by 50% imo but would still represent a favourable return on current share price but as per my stuck record what govt does on rent moratorium legal action is a key driver here.

The LAND results had readied the market for a 15% write down in retail assets in the second half and that is broadly what we got, accordingly there were no shocks. The results webcast was modestly upbeat but they need more clarity on rent collection before reinstating the dividend. Firm office demand and some early talks about a j/v partner for canada water, after arrangements only 7% of march rents outstanding and that is from listed companies. Overall it was fairly positive.

Shield not that convinced yet they have a fair amount of retail. Also have got 26% of rent on lease break/expiry over next 3yrs so plenty of tenants have got an easy exit option. They also have £600m debt due next year according HY20 report but in there RNS of 26/3 they say nothing needs refinancing til 2024 so are they using RCF to cover off. £350m of it is a convertible bond which can be settled in shares so how much dilution is that going to bring? Lets see what FY results brings on 27/5

British Land and Land Securities tipped to ride out UK property recession - hxxps://www.proactiveinvestors.co.uk/companies/news/919294/british-land-and-land-securities-tipped-to-ride-out-uk-property-recession-919294.html I particularly like "Morgan Stanley has a wide view of BLND with a ‘bear case’ price target pitched at 300p on the assumption of a severe UK recession, the ‘bull case’ envisages a “back to boom” scenario with a 770p target."
