boonkoh: Not long to go till an update in NAV! 12th Aug?The smart investors have already cottoned on to the unjustified NAV discount, given the sustained buying over the past week. Just a pity we also have a seller who's determined to make that chart ascent as slow as possible!But all that doesn't matter, when the numbers are published, the market makers won't have enough shares to fulfil the demand at these price levels.
mattphillips940: Also 1.2 Million shares in GCP Student and 5 million shares of unite sold at the same time. Shares in Empiric and Digs down because of limited liquidity at this time of day but should recover under normal volume. Not sure if any underlying reason for the sale or if sales are related and just a biggish investor rotating into something else?
maddox: Unite(UTG)has published a Student Survey this morning, that is significant for any investors in the sector: httpS://www.investegate.co.uk/unite-group-plc--utg-/rns/unite-students--student-survey/202102170900023116P/ The up-shot is that we can expect a rapid recovery in Unite's trading, once Covid-19 restrictions allow. The findings are: >> 77% students struggled with mental health and wellbeing as a result of Covid-19, but 84% say engaging in university life has been positive for their mental health; >> Students' biggest challenge this year is the lack of face-to-face teaching, practical experience or facilities; >> Traditional face-to-face university experience is key for students: 86% are keen to get onto university campus once it is safe to do so; 75% agree that living in university accommodation and being on campus is as important a part of the University experience as lectures and tutorials; and >> Four in five (79%) students would like a return to face-to-face tuition after the Easter break. This based on a survey of 2000 students. Covid-19 has been very instructive: It has demonstrated just how robust the demand is for the University experience. Going to University is clearly a culturally entrenched 'right of passage' for the UK's young adults. It has often been postulated that on-line learning would disrupt this tradition. Covid-19 has provided the opportunity to test this hypothesis. Whilst, on-line learning has clearly allowed for teaching to continue during the Covid-19 Lockdowns - but is certainly not a substitute for the Uni experience. These are two extremely significant points for anyone assessing the risks of investing in this sector. Regards Maddox
rambutan2: I watched the webcast presentation and there was nothing said which concerned me. I like the conservative way they are now managing both the business and investor expectations and are happy to hold and await the rerate which should happen over the next 12mths. imho
stevegrass777: But don't you think that as time goes on investors will realise that by sept,oct when students start Covid should be under control and less restrictions in place. I'm sure the govenment wont want these students on the unemployment statistics! so should be some milage left in ESP yet. Yes it's nice to get a 50% discount,but you can manage on less and still make money I would imagine.
mattphillips940: I imagine this is for the tax benefits it gives to investors as PID is subject to income tax and Non-PID is taxed at a much lower rate.
mattphillips940: I would buy empiric and hold until the price recovers in 6 to 12 months. At that time you can either sell it for a profit or do as I will do and add it to your long term portfolio and enjoy the dividend income.
stevegrass777: JCs polocies were bonkers, it must have put off investors into the UK from abroad, and investors in general, that includes property and shares. So pleased the British public has some common sense!
chucko1: It’s all “ok”. Investors look for better than “ok”. Maybe one day it will find favour again, but a catalyst for this is not immediately obvious. Pretty safe, though, now the new management have rightened the ship. I do agree that it is cheap as compared with the others, but the others have demonstrated they can make the model work. This might just be the better risk/reward, though. That said, there are still better REIT risk/rewards I can think of.
maddox: Hi jonwig, Happy that you raised the issues, always important to look carefully at the risks. We investors need a 'speak-up' rule so we encourage a constructive discussion in a respectful way of both positive and negative points. Nothing worse than someone saying after a share falls 'yep thought that (whatever) was a problem'. Regards, Maddox
