master rsi: re - good luck if you're adding Not adding as the one I bought at 176.50p I already sold. Timing is very important, so on a good profit nowadays one must take profits. Lets see how this one goes, but I would not expect to be so good as the one before. 1 month chart with Bollinger Bands The rule is buy when Share price is at Bottom Band or close and sell at TOP Band It helps if the rest of Indicators are also at oversold, not the case yet, but I did not want to wait as it could bounce very fast and maybe I would not be on the screen when that happens.
master rsi: The 14 days RSI was at the bottom for some time, and finally is curbing UP like the share price
denc: Withholding the Divi was the stupidest move ever. Look at the share price today. Sack the board.
1gw: Could have been worse I suppose. 17% operating profit margin and 55p eps (diluted) is not too shabby given the share price. But the market might not like the immediate outlook statement "In the context of an unresolved Brexit, I expect the first half of 2019 to be difficult."
wilkie_hk: Oh well, only slightly worse than the forecasts as displayed in I feared worse given the battering the share price has taken against it's peers in the last year. Forward sales are encouraging. No idea how the market will react to this. However, they do like to give Crest a good kicking given the slightest excuse. Digitalook forecast: 2018-10-31 1,148.68 178.74 56.11p 6.3 -0.4 -15% 31.60p 9.1% Good to see divi maintained, although I need to be out of my non ISA batch before ex divi date to avoid being clouted for tax.
ken tennis: RCTurner2 thank you for your input and a very good point, I totally understand what you say. From my point of view so long as the CRST share price moves up in the next few years and I collect the nice dividend along the way this suits me fine. ATB Ken
dov: the markey clearly thinks so just look at the cahrt over the past 3 year plus yield of 9% thats a huge danger signal, something has to give so its either a divi cut or the share price will appreciate and reduce that yield i know where my money is on that one. So yes this is a dog unless of course you think 50% decline in the share price in the last couple of years is not. is not.
wilkie_hk: I agree Mike, that house prices are bonkers. It is a disgrace that living spaces are being reduced continually and I'd be all for German space standards being introduced to force developers to provide reasonably sized properties and a limit on the percentage of a plot that may be developed to reverse the trend of no longer providing reasonable sized gardens. However, the UK has been flooded with people over the last 20 years and every young person who makes their home here will eventually become 2 (on average) as they re-produce. This will maintain this unprecedented surge in population for another generation, unless things go very wrong with Brexit and we have some form of exodus. So we have huge demand. Which way will it go? I suspect that we will now plateau for a while. It will then be for the housebuilders to find ways to reduce their costs and negotiate hard with local authorities over social tariffs to maintain margins, this in tandem with increasing output. IMO it is going to be tough to maintain the top line and we may see a drop off in the year after next as the shunting of numbers from next years accounts into the present will only defer matters short term. However, the housebuilders are on very low PE's and may be able to maintain their yields. Would the market accept slowly declining earnings? A difficult one to call as I don't see housebuilders as growth companies any more, but we could have a 20-30% recovery in CRST share price and the dividend maintained. Best case for CRST would be to be taken out by Barratts or Persimmon. Unfortunately, I went in heavy at the beginning of the year hoping to ride out the historically reliable first quarter share price rise before halving my holding. Obviously, this hasn't worked out well. Trying to be objective, I have always said that you shouldn't hold onto a share out of loyalty/sentiment and should coldly consider the fundaments to determine whether you would buy if you didn't already hold. I think the answer to this question for me at the moment is that I would likely take a small holding, which indicates that I should reduce and sit on some cash in the hope that the overall market declines and creates a buying opportunity. Hmm decisions!
wilkie_hk: Well the City appear hell bent on giving CRST a damn good kicking. On the basis of what was in the public domain prior to the trading update and considering the valuation of it's peers, the share price should have been around the £6 mark. As we had seen a divergence of share price with it's peers, many, myself included were half expecting that there must be 'something going on'. So, we get the trading update, which chips the profit margin from an average of 19% (18-20) down to 18%, a 5% percent reduction and the stock looses 20% (assuming that things will settle around £4). Surely, the City already was accounting for this in the depressed price before the announcement. So now, the suspicion is that the update has significantly underplayed the decline in operating margins that will play out as we move forward. Even if we assume that EPS will remain flat for the next 5 years at 66.1p, that is a steady PE of 6. Surely, a PE of 8-10 should apply in this scenario, if we were to view CRST as similar to a high yielding no growth utility. In this case 'value would owt' and we would see a return to 550p to 600p in the future along with the dividend being sustained at 33p (close on 8% yield). However, unfortunately, I suspect this may be the start of a series of trading statements over the next year or so that will gently let us down. The crooks in the City have probably been made aware of this. As for the board, as per most directors of FTSE companies they will be in it for themselves, with the game being to line their pockets as much as possible without the shareholders kicking off.
1gw: Crst share price benefitting from the BKG statement this morning I think: "The housing market in London and the South East has now stabilised. Overall, underlying reservations in the seven months since the immediate Brexit referendum effect (August to February) are down 16% on the comparable period last year, with the last two months ahead of last year. Enquiry levels remain robust, cancellation rates are at normal levels and pricing continues to be resilient and above business plan levels." hTtps://
