A prospective earnings multiple of under 8 and a yield of almost 8%. Higher gearing relative to similar business, but a return on equity of over 18% on last year's numbers. Despite the upbeat tone regarding prospects, rating is discounting a downturn. The fall in the £'s exchange rate will have no material impact on costs as labour and materials are almost all in that currency. The shortage of new flats and houses is set to continue to rise with the growth in population.

In theory it makes no difference. Price will fall by the amount of the dividend (56p). But there are also other factors in play regarding building shares today it seems - skewing the equation. Certainly, also, sometimes folk would prefer not to take the dividend for tax reasons.

Like I said, a very expensive dividend indeed - accepting what you say, warranty. Certainly a buying opportunity once it stops falling.

To be fair Lord G it has been one of the better performers so anyone wanting the divi has probably already bought. If you're looking to hold long term it could be another opportunity to buy giving the yield.

I must admit that I was expecting it to rise into ex-div day. Already proving to be an expensive divi.

Nearly all ex-div dates have now been moved to a Thursday with record dates being the Friday. They do effectively "sync" with the T-2 settlement as you have to be holding on the Wednesday at close of business.

Thanks for that. I had in my mind that record dates were always 2 days after ex-div dates (to sync with UK T+2 settlement dates) then I noticed he record date here was the day after exdiv.

The ex divi date is Thursday so you need to be holding the stock at the close of Wednesday this week. The price is likely to fall on Thursday by the value of the divi.

Forgive the stupid question, but haven't traded a stock for dividend yield for a while; as the record date here is the 28th (day after ex-dividend) can we sell these on wed 26th (settling on a T+2) and still qualify for the Dividend?Thanks.

Galliford should benefit from the autumn statement in Nov given their involvement in social housing and regeneration.

A bit of sector rotation as well perhaps, seems to be the way with building stocks

I think it is partly a general fear that the house-building cycle is about to go into decline. However Government has good intentions on house-building and GFRD has the construction side as well. The big dividend should help support the shares up to xd date 27th Oct. Surprised to see so big a fall today though.

Taking a hit today along with other house builders. Has some kind analyst downgraded the whole sector or is it a fear of interest rates rising sometime next year?

Up 17.8% since start of September! Doesn't appear to be slowing down

What's a shame is that decent people may well have entrusted their hard earned cash/pension pots to such establishments. There's plenty of basket case companies to short, and GFRD certainly isn't one of them. By shorting GFRD they confuse quality businesses with movements in share price. IMHO what they are doing is not investment, but utter speculation.

anley - agreed, it's crazy to set a target price at all in uncertain times! And there could well be a big buyer or short covering going on. There has been no new information this morning yet the price has soared - but yesterday with the same info the price hardly moved! I have given up trying to trade short term price movements - they are too unpredictable.

The laughably named "Insight Investment Management" have a short which increased to a peak of 1.12% in the run up to the referendum (while the share price was decreasing) since when the share price has been steadily recovering. hTTp://shorttracker.co.uk/company/GB00B3Y2J508/all

More upside at Galliford Try, says Numis - HTTP://citywire.co.uk/money/the-expert-view-hargreaves-lansdown-morrisons-and-next/a948750?ref=citywire-money-picture-galleries-list#i=5 There is still upside to be found in Galliford Try (GFRD) shares as the housebuilding and construction group reports better performance and lower finance costs. Numis analyst Christen Hjorth retained his ‘hold’ recommendation but reduced the target price from £14.95 to £13.00. ‘Galliford Try reported results that were slightly ahead of our forecasts, driven by a better-than-expected operating performance and lower net finance costs,’ he said. ‘Looking forward, while the EU referendum result has led to increased uncertainty, management points to the outlook remaining positive for all three businesses, and we therefore leave our forecasts broadly unchanged.’ Hjorth said that based on Numis’ methodology the target price for Galliford had been reduced in line with recent share price declines in the sector. He said it still ‘represents 8% upside to the current share price, and we therefore retain our ‘hold’ recommendation’. The shares gained 5p yesterday afternoon to trade at £12.21.
