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.
speedsgh: Crest Nicholson shares still cheap, says Shore Capital - HTTP:// Housebuilder Crest Nicholson (CRST) may have rallied in the past few days but the shares are still cheap, according to Shore Capital. Analyst Robin Hardy retained his ‘buy’ recommendation on the stock after a short first quarter update that showed trading remains in line with expectations. The shares were down 2.9% at 453.8p yesterday. He said Crest had been ‘by some margin, the weakest performing house builder in the last few months having reached a peak share price much earlier than the rest of the sector but then fell back peak-to-trough by almost 30%’. Hardy believed the shares were ‘discounting something calamitous… [but] that does not appear to be the case’. ‘Our fair value for Crest remains at 540p, which is now 16% above the current share price,’ he said. ‘The shares have rallied in the last few days, helped by some material holdings being disclosed, but they remain cheap in our view.’
stemis: The share price divergence with other housebuilders seemed to occur in June around the time of the interims. There's an article dated 23.3.17 from IC comparing housebuilders. I've looked at a few and share price movement since then is BVS + 28.4% PSN + 20.2% RDW + 19.6% TEF + 18.6% BWY + 8.9% BDEV - 2.8% and CRST? CRST - 20.4%
wilkie_hk: Must say I am a bit miffed with this one. I have a heavy holding in these and have played to the trend for the share price to show outperformance in the first quarter by topping up my holding before Christmas and then reducing again in April for a couple of years. Comparing Crest to it's peers; PSN, TW., RDW, PSN & BWY. Based on a number of metrics CRST would appear to be the best value. Strong operating margin, excellent dividend yield, PE, land bank etc. Additionally, from the annual reports and statements the company appears to be prudently run. However, share price performance lags markedly behind it's peers on a 5 year basis. The others range from 121% to 242%, compared to CRST achieving just 78%. OK a few percentage points are gained by the higher than average divi yield, although PSN and BDEV pay more. So what am I missing that has caused CRST to lag behind the others? I don't want to bury my head in the sand with these and am open to having the percieved negatives pointed out to me. So?
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://
