I think the exposure to the construction sector is the problem. The mkt seems to have doubts about the company's ability to achieve good contracts which was sold as part of the rationale for the rights but if there are unexpected costs of whatever nature then these are perceived as having a major impact on the business as the cash outflows impact the far more profitable house building side.

Galliford seems to be getting hit harder than other housebuilders, could it be because of the exposure to the construction sector? Long term holder so picking up more of this massive yield while I can!

we could do with an update to reassure in view of the sector chaos.

So, how does this "credit squeeze" in the construction industry affect GFRD?Should be fine I think.

Dr Smith, I agree with your comments.Experience tells me that if you think a share has reached rock bottom it's probably got further to fall.I own this stock and am holding for the long term.

Theobald. >don’t see anything positive on the horizon to increase share price Fair comment, but how about doom not happening? Sector and GRFD have tanked on Brexit uncertainty and GFRD has (hopefully) legacy hit of Aberdeen by-pass. Even allowing for rights issue share price is below recent history and a PE of 5.5 is a very good figure. IMV the negative view of sector and GFRD is way over done, but aware of those with a less positive view. My view is with a long term horizon. Then again, I wouldn't have guessed share price going this low, so don't listen to me. ;-)

I think Interserve will survive but will be owned by it's debt holders thus wiping out the private shareholders.Don't think this is going to impact GFRD too much as company seems well funded but don't see anything positive on the horizon to increase share price Might consider buying more if there are further falls. All imho.

If IRV go under, do other construction companies have any shared contracts?, as happened with CLLN. Liability for uncompleted work?. Domino dancing ?.

There have been a lot of big buys put through after hours..not just today..from my own experience,these could well be sells..my top up on Friday was put through as a sell, happened many times to me before (other shares). Does anyone have level 2 and can confirm that.?if they are indeed sells,it would bare out the fall..at least .. withstanding the obvious global issues at moment...

It takes nerve but this could be one of those opportunities. Brexit chaos, Dow falling. odd really , the FTSE 100 index is about 15% down from this years highs, but many domestic shares, and GFRD is one, have fallen 40% or more. Brexit is weighing heavy.

podgyted. Yes, the contrast of 5 to 9% up of other builders to 0.5% is astonishing. GFRD are in ICB sector "Construction & materials" not "Household goods" like the rest. Could it be that the bots are following a simple top down process favouring Household goods. Maybe with GFRD div paid today, their folio is top heavy with GFRD...naah that can't be it.

House builders rising significantly today - Galliford left behind. Sometimes I think the market forgets there's a house builder in there.

Mr Matheson explained why it is not currently possible to provide an opening date for the Craibstone to Stonehaven and Charleston section: “Earlier this week, I spoke with Peter Truscott, chief executive of Galliford Try to receive an update on the progress they were making in discussing this variation with their lenders. Despite assurances that they were doing everything possible to open the road at the earliest opportunity, as well as a clear indication from Mr Truscott that they were making the necessary changes to the AWPR contract to open the 31.5km section, I was then disappointed to receive a letter from him which contradicted our discussion. So the road isn't opening because of commercial disputes not the technicals. The River Don piece is the only bit stopping this from opening on building works grounds. Subject to weather, that could be finished this month at which point the costs stop and it just a case of how much the consortium can extract from the Scottish Govt

Can someone remind why share price collapse so much? Is it due to Kier? Or Brexit?

EI. IIRC GFRD has 3 divisons specifically to ride storms and cycles and bounce off each other. If you wind down a business (side), it likely takes more to bounce back in good times, particurlaly staff/work-force. I feel, but don't know, they cut their own throats at the negotiating table, probably often taking the view they are OK with near zero profit, if it helps pay fixed costs. A consequence of being a big company. The answer no doublt lies in the middle. Now the under-cutting CLLN is out of the way, GFRD now applying a more stringent policy and gov/other players acknowledging each parties need for margin to survive, hopefully the future is better.

Good to hear it's paid off in some cases. I'm watching TW. atm, however think we are past peak cycle for the sector. Would expect some sharp counter moves though along the way.

I have had mixed results being a contrarian. From the good old days I have framed 3 share certificates from Woolworths, Northern Rock, and Eurotunnel. They hang on the wall and remind me that I am not so smart. But I bought TW. at 4p, and chickened out at 9p. They would have been a multi bagger. Sometimes it works, bought RR. at 81p a few years ago. Sold at £1.60p. They went on to almost £13.

careful, being contrarian is fine, provided you are not buying value traps. I would be very careful of this sector, and as mentioned previously why GFRD did not wind down their construction business is beyond me. Profitable house building side to focus on.
