garycook: If you are looking for income, a better buy might be 9% yielder Galliford Try (LSE: GFRD). Based on current City estimates, shares in Galliford support a dividend yield of 9.4% and trade at a forward P/E of 5.2. Unfortunately, the high yield comes with a degree of uncertainty. Getting worse before it gets better In February the company announced that it was cutting its interim dividend from 32p to 28p per share and issuing £150m worth of new shares to cover liabilities stemming from the collapse of outsourcer Carillion. As my Foolish colleague Roland Head pointed out at the time of the fundraising, due to the higher number of shares in issue, and management’s target to maintain dividend cover at two times adjusted earnings, this could mean Galliford’s annual distribution falls to 67p per share for 2018, giving a potential dividend yield of 8.2%. While a full-year dividend cut is disappointing, a yield of 8.2% is nothing to be sniffed at. It is still more than double the FTSE 100 average. What’s more, according to my figures it won’t be long before the payout starts growing again. After taking a step back in 2018, City analysts are expecting earnings per share to return to growth in 2019, hitting 162p. A 50% payout ratio implies a dividend of 81p per share based on this figure, giving a potential forward dividend yield of 9.8% on today’s share price of 818p.

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.

nescio quid: marksp2011 what you said in your second post is the same as I said in mine. "The value of that "right" will move as the value of the underlying share moves" In you earlier post you said it would move at 3x that rate "the rights are roughly 3:1 leveraged v the share price. If the share price rises 50p the Nil paid should rise by 150." no further discussion is needed as we are now in agreement

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

marksp2011: Trading the rights will be interesting as they have heavy leverage against the share price. If the share price rises 50p so will the rights value ir roughly a 50% rise

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.

marksp2011: Careful Sorry I don't follow your logic It is true you still have the same proportion but, the proportion has been discounted twice. What you usually see is a drop when the rights is abnnounced followed by another drop when the terms are announced as they have been based on a trailing price calculation. The Sp has dropped for 1200 to 900 taking up a 1:10 at 8.50 and assuming you held 2k shares Buying another 10% at 8.5 Original value = £24k New value = 19.8k assuming you take up your full offering The market value for the holding in GFRD was 24k and it is now 19.7k The company chose not to announce the pricing for the offer and so attracted the sell off. Does the size of the discount make a difference? No in terms of the proportions. very much so in terms of the share price as the share price tends to move towards the rights price reducing the value of the primary holding. If the rights is at close to market...I agree it makes no difference. In this case, noone thinks this is a zero discount offering so the incumbents lose value

c2b: Rising price is surely a good sign that it may be a proper rights issue. If the belief was that it was mostly a placing to institutions, with the placing price unknown, then surely the share price would carry on crashing, since all placings are at a discount to the share price on the day it is announced, and those in "the know" short the shares.Still absolutely disgraceful that the equity raising announcement was made the way it was.
