Really speedsgh.. well you keep those thoughts to yourself ;-) I didn't say my attempts at humour were any good. :-) I tend to be the opposite, assuming interested folks have online triggers for rns as keep BB for other than rns and dialogue/opinions. I am interested in other folks thoughts and reasoning, though do have a big filter list. And is today blue or red????? ...It's a black zero!!

No probs for posts, DR_SMITH. I take the view that, if i see something on GFRD (or any other stock for that matter) that is interesting, I may as well share it. I will share whatever I see, whether bullish or bearish. Other than that I try (although sometimes fail) not to say anything else and leave each individual to make up their mind on what they read. I know many use these boards for debating the pros and cons but I tend to prefer to keep my thoughts to myself, although I naturally will tend to post on companies that I either hold or have on a watchlist.

Thank-you for the posts speedsgh, I would have missed some of these as no rns. Do you sometimes think you are posting to yourself with no responders. ;-) I tend to not to comment unless something constructive to say..or some humour on a slack day. On by-pass, I guess it means no direct affect on agreed contracts with GFRD, so no need for concern, but..demonstrates public purse constrained even for required/commited projects. IMV :-) If demand in public sector drops and private sector (house builds) remains strong, I don't know if GFRD are able to easily re-locate/re-distribute resources to enable private aspect to take up any slack. My £££; are invested as LTH and topped up recently.

GFRD is now trading on a fwd yield of 8.4%. That seems to be pricing in an awful lot of negativity, unless the market knows something that we don't? Chart does not look great. Ignoring the Brexit referendum spike down & subsequent recovery, the share price is still in a longer term downtrend which started mid 2015.

Overview of today's rns below. Difficult to find negatives in the info provided. The question that may remain is whether they are having to swim against the tide in some of their markets. If they are, this increases the possibility of a deterioration in their outlook at some point going forward, even if they haven't been affected to date.

So now we know the cause for the fall. General weakness in the property market. Few buyers about. House builders and Estate Agents taking a hit today. It will be interesting to read what the AGM RNS has to say tomorrow. It's all in the outlook statement.

Yep, I'm another, concur with Kevph, I'm already in for disprportionate percentage of 'folio. Likewise happy on fundamentals and baffled by recent share price drop. As for future skeletons - any company can have them, something you accept day 1 of putting money in stock market.

Posible reasons for current weakness in a nutshell... CONSTRUCTION: sentiment towards sector poor due to headwinds & some high profile car crashes relating to legacy contracts (cf CLLN IRV); GFRD also reported on legacy contracts in 3rd May rns - HTTPS://www.investegate.co.uk/galliford-try-plc--gfrd-/rns/update-on-trading-and-legacy-contracts/201705030700119765D/; investors possibly nervous until get further reassurance that no further deterioration (in spite of reasurance given in Final Results*). * from Final Results - HTTPS://www.investegate.co.uk/galliford-try-plc--gfrd-/rns/final-results/201709130700045627Q/: "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."

Persimmon (8/11) - HTTPS://www.investegate.co.uk/persimmon-plc--psn-/rns/trading-statement/201711080700038289V/ Redrow (9/11) - HTTPS://www.investegate.co.uk/redrow-plc--rdw-/rns/agm-statement/201711090700049721V/ "The sales market was buoyant in the first quarter, however ongoing political and economic uncertainty has resulted in a slight slow down in sales in recent weeks in comparison to a very strong sales market last year..."

AGM is tomorrow, micos, so I guess we'll get an AGM statement / update RNS in the morning. That might just shed a bit of light on things.

Any more skeletons about to pop out of the cupboard? PIs are always last to know anything. Other than that, I would agree with Kevph.

Just looked at GFRD on Digital Look.. It would be hard to find a more amazing set of figures and yet the shares are being ground down steadily, or rather rapidly this morning. I've got too many if these already but I'm tempted to load up on more!

Looks like usual panic. A little doubt over legacy plus a perceived slowdown in the housing market without the support of an imminent divi and it's turned into a free for all. At times like this I stick to the fundamentals. No debt, great growth, amazing divi. Frankly, way to cheap.

I would rather keep my holdings in BKG,and TW atm.The worry with GFRD is the existing legacy contracts.Look at CLLN,and IRV in that respect.GFRD went down to £8 and change last year.The 8% yield is very attractive,but I do not want to be caught out with any surprises down the line,which Construction issues can throw up.
