Perhaps Cwd should be renamed Titanic plc, as it is perfectly clear that it's definitely sinking whilst the board appear to be happily dancing the night away in the ballroom merrily giving free shares away every month to the management team universally derided across their industry.

Most interesting to see that Brandes have started selling a few shares.If Countrywide lose their support (they hold 40m shares) then they are toast!

Brandes selling down from 18.01% to 17.09%: https://www.investegate.co.uk/countrywide-plc--cwd-/rns/holding-s--in-company/201708211615005828O/ Were they part of the original PE group that took the business private and then refloated it at a later date?

Quality management of any business will take the accolades when they are due, but also put their hands up when things aren't going very well.Everybody knows that the UK residential property market isn't in great condition, and that the London market is particularly weak.It is not totally surprising therefore that the profitability of the major agency groups is under pressure.What, for Countrywide investors however is much more concerning is:1 The constant spiral down in market share to below 5%, from circa 10% not many years ago, this loss of share taken despite adding expensively acquired businesses in the meantime which should have helped build market share.2 Reducing fee percentages on those properties that are sold.3 The prospect in 2018 of a complete ban on tenants fees which will have a devastating impact on Countrywide's revenue/profits.4 Worrying levels of debt that may require yet more money being obtained from shareholders (at what discount?) to avoid breaching bank covenants.Management, with their constant confusing and most difficult to fully understand PR statements appear relaxed. The City however has already marked the share price down by 10% today to an all time low, with, I would guess, more blood yet to flow.SELL.

Platt full of corpo blarney Her endless fiddling Clearl failed in trying to sell Lambert Smith Hampton which she tries to dress up as a positive All going to unravel as the mortgage side of the business will be looking to get out this is all going to disintegrate pretty fast if she is still at the helm

Little hope of achieving a fancy price for LSH which has been hawked around the market for several months. You cant sell a commercial property practice like a sack of spuds Clearly no future for the non equity owning senior players who are no doubt busy organising their exit The upside is Brandes who have built up a stake have some sort of strategy!

Testing new lows!If falls beneath 150p, where is the next resistance level?I'm no chartist but suspect that we could see 130p quite soon as overall market slows and Cwd continue to appear to be rudderless and in a never ending downward spiral.

Death by a thousand cuts I bet the neggies are loving this fixed fee How much commission can they earn from that ? The irony is not lost is that even with the fixed fee service people will be walking into their office asking the ususal questions No sign of any LSH sale either .Some of their key fee earners disgruntled that they are being hawked around like a sack of spuds no doubt on their way where they are appreciated -clients in tow

Shares continue to drift sideways or south as the market (perhaps somewhat illogically) drives the valuation of Purplebricks to levels that give me a nose bleed.No sign whatsoever anywhere that management's new strategy to offer a hybrid service through it's branches is having any effect in arresting their death spiral of rapidly reducing market share.Still, for me, an attractive short, with the only concern that the two major shareholders decide to take the business private again and offer a small premium to do so.

I picked up a few of these for my SIPP this afternoon after being encouraged by the fairly chunky Director buy.

I've had a browse through the 2016 annual report: hxxp://www.countrywide.co.uk/media/59659/countrywide-plc-annual-report-2016.pdf The debt is explained in note 20 on pages 103 and 104. It explains: Interest is currently payable based on LIBOR plus a margin of 2.75%. The margin is linked to the leverage ratio of the Group and the margin rate is reviewed twice a year (and can vary between 1.75% and 3.0%). That's a normal margin grid arrangement but the fact that they're paying 2.75% when the top margin is 3.00% suggests that there's very little room for manoeuvre. There is no margin above 3% because above 3% implies that the leverage ratio is too high and thus the overall loan is in default.

Yes banks must be worried as fees being reduced and offices shut so little opportunity to par back debt No synergy realised by expansion by cheque book. No doubt flogging LSH to make the banks happy Although the initial purchase of LSH was OK all the other add ons incldung the ES group have been expensively bought with revenue escaping No chance of getting their money back

I'm very surprised to see so much debt on the balance sheet given the EBITDA levels and lack of asset backing.
