64p divi - goes ex divi on 26th Oct. This will easily hit the 1400+ mark before the ex divi date on 26/10. Perfect time to snap this on the cheap currently. This is a Temp dip and share price will bounce over the coming days. In any case I ain't selling till next year, looking forward to the 5% yield :).

64p divi, GFRD goes ex-divi on 26th Oct, thats an amazing circa 5% yield at the current share price Add the 32p divi from earlier in the year and thats bring the total annual divi yield to 7%, what a bloody bargain :). This is a great buy in my book!! Solid company with great results and divi protected for the coming 2-3 years, whats not to like :)

Was wondering the same thing. Seems volatile with a major divi coming up in the next two weeks. Bought on the weakness. Time will tell. GLA

Any particular reason for today's drop? Seems like a good opportunity to increase my holding with a 7% return.

Hi CWA. Nice PR for GT and all well & good so long as the contracts won & undertaken turn out to be profitable which appears to have been the achilles heel in the Construction sector in recent years. Risk is of course spread somewhat with GFRD in that Construction represents just one division alongside Partnerships & Regeneration and Linden Homes (housebuilding). Actuals for FY2017... DIVISION -- 2017 REVENUE -- 2017 OPERATING PROFIT MARGIN: Linden Homes -- £937m -- 18.2% Partnerships & Regeneration -- £330m -- 4.5% Construction -- £1.57bn (pre-exceptional) -- 0.0% (pre-exceptional) Targets for FY2021... DIVISION -- 2021 REVENUE -- 2021 OPERATING PROFIT MARGIN: Linden Homes -- £1.25-1.35bn -- 19-20% Partnerships & Regeneration -- £650m -- 6-7% Construction -- £1.8bn -- >2%

64p divi - goes ex divi on 26th Oct. dividend is progressive too, so next year the yield could equate to ~8% at these prices. Plus guaranteed HTB scheme until 2021 now, I think their growth plan is looking solid. Great share to buy at current prices, will easily smash the 1450-75 mark before the ex divi date.

Housebuilder and construction company Galliford Try (LSE: GFRD) updated the market this morning with its full-year results. We’ve endured a stomach-churning ride with the share price over the last couple of years due mainly to the push-pull relationship between the firm’s largest divisions. The housebuilding division, Linden Homes, has been wonderfully profitable, but the firm has found it hard to keep the construction operation in the black and today’s results reflect the internal battle. One-off charge Compared to a year ago, revenue is up 9% but earnings declined 55% due to the “profit impact of the one-off charge of £98.3m announced in May.” In other words, Linden Homes made lots of profit but losses in the construction division took half of it away. However, the directors assure us that forward contracts in the construction division are under control and the firm is treating the hit to profits as an exceptional item. I hope they are right because the company puts a lot of effort into its construction operation, which accounted for around 55% of revenue during the period. Looking at the figures after ignoring the exceptional charge to profits, underlying earnings per share lifted 10%. The firm also moved from a net debt position of £8.7m to a net cash position of £7.2m. The directors made an implied statement about their confidence in Galliford Try’s forward prospects by pushing up the full-year dividend by 17%. High dividend And the dividend looks attractive. At today’s 1,373p share price, the forward yield for the year to June 2018 runs at 7% and City analysts following the firm expect earnings to advance 16% and cover the payout almost 1.8 times.

The £98m non recurring costs on legacy contracts was difficult to like. Hopefully a blip although often when one thing pops up, there is more waiting - but hopefully not with GFRD.

Numis lukewarm over Galliford Try’s results - HTTP://citywire.co.uk/money/the-expert-view-next-morrisons-and-interserve/a1049422#i=5 Housebuilder Galliford Try (GFRD) may have reported in-line full-year results but Numis has downgraded its forecasts on some of the ‘disappointing’ figures. Analyst Christen Hjorth retained his ‘add’ recommendation and target price of £14.85 on the stock after Galliford reported full-year profit before tax of £59 million, in line with its July trading update. ‘However, looking forward, driven by a relatively disappointing average outlet number, we move our full-year 2018 earnings per share forecasts down 3%, although note that our 2019 profit and loss estimates remain broadly unchanged,’ he said. He added that the shares were now trading 17% above post profit warning lows on a price to net asset value ratio of 2.3 times, versus 1.8 times for the peer group. The shares edged 5p higher to £13.45 yesterday.

The Construction division is clearly the wart at present. It made a pre-exceptional loss from operations of £0.9m (2016: profit £15.8m). So, even prior to taking account of the provision for the 2 legacy contracts, the Construction division had an operating margin of -0.0% (2016: +1.1% which was boosted by the sale of their site accommodation portfolio to a third party equipment hirer) & lost money. Adding in the exceptional, the operating loss amounted to £88.8m. They are aiming to grow operating margin to 2.0% by 2021. Of the two legacy contracts, one is largely practically complete whilst the other is expected to conclude in mid 2018. "In May, we announced a one-off charge of £98.3 million, following a thorough reappraisal of the costs to complete and expected recoveries on legacy contracts. There has been no material movement in this position and we have taken a proactive approach towards managing these legacy contracts through to completion, with significant involvement of the executive team. We have made good progress in resolving legacy projects during the period, and pleasingly no further contracts have been added to that list. Most of these contracts are now complete on site, with continuing uncertainties relating to final settlements and claim recoveries. Of the two large infrastructure joint ventures which gave rise to the exceptional item, one is largely practically complete, whilst the other is expected to conclude in mid 2018. We have reasonable confidence around the cost position on these projects, but inevitable intrinsic uncertainty around amounts to be recovered from some significant claims."
