the cost to transport bricks over here must cost a fair whack, and wouldnt have thought brexit would have made that process any easier or cheaper. that provides some protection from being undercut on price.

forterra have their own 'surebrick' product. no idea if it will be popular, but housebuilders are always looking to cut corners wherever possible.
Posted at 28/9/2023 21:06 by m_kerr
yes a bit odd, as house builders have seen decent share price growth over the past 6-9 months yet this has fallen steadily.

lots of doom and gloom in the share price, but the real money is made buying these sort of cyclicals when the future looks a bit uncertain. on a medium - long term view this generates plenty of cash. the new desford plant should enable them to benefit fully from a recovery, whenever that is.

Just looked at this thread for the first time in a very long time. It's still quite a quiet thread, no idea why, given the sector it resides in, and the pressure nationwide for new housing stock to be built, year on year - seemingly forever.

I've looked at my paper records in an old file: I sold half my holding in 11/2018 at £2.73, the rest a year later at £3.35. I don't feel clever about those transactions, just lucky. The money went into savings accounts, which now yield 5%+.

In the early days of this thread, one investor in particular, with some very good knowledge of Forterra, having (perhaps) worked as an employee or sub-contractor, was very sceptical regarding the management and forward strategy of the company. All this stuff is history, and can be read on the thread. I think as a result of what he wrote, and the information he shared, I eventually decided to sell.

I would be interested to hear if current investors believe the Forterra management & BOD are once again heading in the right direction, and the company might once again become a decent long term investment..?

Yes to the following: It suffered during the pandemic. It suffered from supply chain difficulties. It suffered from skilled labour shortages as a result of Brexit. And so on... And so did all companies, in similar sectors, yet look at the Forterra share price now, compared to, say - 4 or 5 years ago.

Regards to all, and the best of luck in your investments.

Results and current share price seem to reflect current conditions. The former is natural, the latter a bit blinkered IMO. In the future conditions are far more likely to improve than deteriorate, and efficiencies are likely to improve markedly now the new factory is almost up and running, so I am happy to hold at this price.

Although there's a significant difference on the 12 month FORT v IBST respective share prices, their 5 year share price performance is very similar.
Posted at 06/4/2023 16:08 by edmundshaw
Last two dividends are 4.6p interim paid on 14-Oct-22 10.1p final to be paid on 07-Jul-23. Total for 2022 is 14.7p.

I'll let you do the maths based on the share price of your choice! :))

Forterra valuation 'undemanding' in the opinion of Peel HuntPeel Hunt has upgraded brick manufacturer Forterra (FORT) on its low valuation, despite a slowdown in the housing market.Analyst Sam Cullen hiked his recommendation from 'add' to 'buy' but lowered his share price target from 300p to 250p after a full-year trading statement yesterday came in slightly ahead of expectations but showed the outlook for this year remains uncertain.The shares jumped 5.4% to 216.5p in morning trading. They have rallied nearly 15% in the past month but have fallen 11% over one year.'The volume outlook for 2023 remains somewhat uncertain, but the balance between supply and demand should be helped by a lack of inventory, limited capacity, and a significant import buffer that could be displaced,' Cullen said.'Selling prices are expected to increase further in January, although the housebuilders in particular are pushing back given the falling levels of demand,' added the analyst/Cullen has cut his profit before tax estimate by 18% in both 2023 and 2024 due to falling demand levels, which also reduces the target price. However, he lifted his rating given the valuations which at 10x this year's forecast earnings he said 'remains undemanding'.

RCT & Edmund, I agree, and you'll see that I have always held similar views, since investing shortly after the Forterra IPO in 2016.

However, it's worth noting that the share price is currently at the level it was in 2017. 5 years ago. So not a great investment story/history for someone who put FORT into an ISA or SIPP in that year. Of course, the market, as usual, is dictating events in terms of confidence in the company's management, and thus the share price

Government targets regarding numbers of new build housing are irrelevant in my opinion. Construction companies will continue to do what they say on the tin, to their shareholders, i.e., grow the company and pay a decent dividend.

I tend to agree also that a takeover might well be on the cards. Especially for a Private Equity outfit...

Thrumptasious something of a perma-bear here for 6 months. Only stock on which he comments. He also made allegations about Forterra last year but nothing the company has said since bears them out. I'd be very wary of this poster's comments...
