careful: sentiment poor here. Recent update suggest pre tax of getting on for £190m. Dividend good. Cap only £750m. debt ok. Today we heard at last that the road would open tomorrow. Presume there must be some ritual horse trading before all the cash is handed over, but the share price continues down. It will take something special to shift this. Seems to have collapsed for no particular reason (I know about the cash flow argument) Any thoughts on the Blackrock position announced above?
careful: But debt seems ok. Any thoughts on the relevance of debt levels? A PE of 5.75 and a yield of 11% does look odd. I guess it is tempting to assume that the market is smart and all knowing. From that assumption we can deduct what it is that is driving the share price up or down. (I think sometimes it is more like Bitcoin, or the South Sea Bubble, or Tulipmania, totally irrational) The markets are often ignorant and stupid and get it wrong on the downside, as well as the upside. We get the exact opposite of a bubble sometimes.
careful: Still holding, surprised at the share price rout after a good initial reaction. A PE of 6 and yield (covered) of 10% shows how odd these markets trade. We do not trust the results anymore. There is always risk, but the best approach is to take the dividends and look away. Ignore share price.
kenmitch: pj. You’re not missing anything. And share price up 6% today shows market agrees with you. Share price fall to 590p suggested serious bad news, perhaps most likely from their construction business, being priced in. Today’s update shows those fears were indeed overdone, at least for now.
nori_wasabi: Hope you are right, Morgoth1. GFRD's fundamentals are OK. Also, yesterday PH cut price target to 885 (1165) but reiterated "BUY" assessment. We should hold our nerve. BTW, right issue done in Apr was a smart/ lucky move after all. Just imagine if they tried it now, the share price would go to £4 or less !
kenmitch: bor491. Surprised you didn't understand very basic dividend must know before posting that! The dividend is taken out of the share price on the day the share goes ex dividend. ex dividend date is almost always a Thursday. The ex dividend date (and the day it is paid) is usually announced with the results. Anyone buying the share on ex dividend day (and subsequent days) does NOT get the next dividend. Anyone holding the share on ex dividend day DOES get the next dividend, even if they sell the share on ex dividend day or subsequent days. The dividend is always taken out of the share price on ex dividend day. The share might not fall by the full dividend amount... e.g if the lower share price attracts buyers. OR the share price could fall by more than the dividend amount if there are more sellers than buyers. Aside from this...just wish the share price would stop falling. If the falls continue to be worse than other housebuilders then it's either bad news leaking or GFRD being punished more because of the further problems with the construction business. The sooner they are a housebuilder pure and simple the better!
pulsey: Box491 the share price drops when it goes ex dividend (already happened).Share price will not be affected this week when dividend is avtually paid. If anything, some investors reinvest dividends so there might be a marginal improvement. Not that we will notice it amongst the steady fall.
scrwal: marksp2011 The rights are effectively "leveraged" but your statement "the rights are roughly 3:1 leveraged v the share price. If the share price rises 50p the Nil paid should rise by 150." is incorrect in the case of GFRD. The price of the rights increases/decreases by the same in terms of pence per share but at a much higher % rate because of its much lower market price ie where the leverage aspect comes in. Your post 4469 is theorectically correct and highlights the leveraged nature of rights but the values used don't reflect the real world GFRD situation. I don't hold GFRD and don't know the current price of the rights but this should clarify things hopefully GFRD price 835p Rights price is 835-568 = 267p Assume a 50p increase then this applies GFRD 885p a 5.99% rise Rights are 317p a 18.73% rise which is the 3x leverage factor.
marksp2011: 12358....... the rights are roughly 3:1 leveraged v the share price. If the share price rises 50p the Nil paid should rise by 150. As the close date approached they will be valued at the GFRD price - 568p. I have let rights lapse in the past and I got cash for them automatically IF most of the rights are taken up, there will be no stock overhang and the price should improve with a better balance sheet. If the underwriters are left with a third of the company things will be a bit rocky. Most of the Aberdeen Bypass will finish in mid summer as in the staff will be gone. The contract wont close out until autumn so the major lession will be cured
mayers: DR_SMITH I am inclined to agree with you. I had held GFRD for quite a number of years but sold in the descent after the Carillion debacle to protect in particular,investment made after the collapse of 2008 when GFRD share price was around 280p. Re-entry is always a difficult decision and I would naturally wish to know as far as one can, that Construction with its narrow margins is likely to be free of further problems. Your comments are I think, very pertinent. I read that the Eastleigh Borough Council recently acquired the land, already with outline planning consent and would be interested to know, if anyone knows, how this came about. My limited understanding concerning Draft Local Plans is that Councils may propose preferred local sites for development but the purchase of the land, often agricultural land, is between the landowner and the developer at market rates. The Governmental Plan seems therefore to be a scheme in which landowners may be the main beneficiaries, particularly in which the element of affordable housing and rental is limited to a derisory 35%. Forgive me if this latter issue appears tangential to the main thread but I suspect there may be many areas where these comments may be relevant.
