garycook: Builder Galliford Try has a cash pile worth more than its shares Shares in construction company Galliford Try (LSE: GFRD) have plummeted in 2020. That was largely due to a demerger at the start of the year. Even after that, though, the share price continued to fall significantly. It reported a big cash pile of £197m at the end of June. The company’s total market capitalisation is little more than half of that, at £112m. That means that if the company was dissolved, it could pay out a lot more than today’s price for each share – in cash! The company is set to put that money to good use instead. It is currently focused on infrastructure projects and residential building schemes. With the government keen to spend recovery funds on infrastructure projects and an ongoing boom in housing demand, Galliford Try looks like the sort of prime recovery play I’d choose among cheap UK shares. A positive indicator is its recent announcement that it expects to resume dividends early next year. Shares have already started to climb – but I think they have further gains to make as the business returns to normal.
hooley: A total annual dividend of 10p a share would cost £21m. Current share price 97p, an implied yield of over 10%. A doubling of the share price indicates plenty of upside. Well worth a punt.
imastu pidgitaswell: I'm not a holder - but options are just that - options. They have the option to buy at one price, presumably the current price or at a discount, so say 80p, and sell at the market price in 3 years' time. Hence they're only worth anything if the share price goes up. They're not getting £3m of shares for nothing. Designed to incentivise them to get the share price up. What isn't clear - and I'll admit I haven't looked as not invested - is what the exercise (buy) price is. Or even if they have revealed that.
mark1000: A construction article put out by Mace yesterday says its consultants expect tender prices to fall by 2.5% in 2021 ( as a result of a reduction in new construction contracts ) well with GFRD ambitions being a 1.5% margin that leaves us screwed. The outcome being either no bid or win the bid and loose 1% go figure it. Kier came out with a huge loss yesterday but at least they are targeting cost reductions of a 100M a year. Cost cutting appears not to be so important to GFRD who are very happy sitting on their shareholders mountain of cash safe in the knowledge that their wages will be paid at least for three more years. The current Directors are out of their depth and a merger with someone like MGNS with a proven senior Management team makes sense before all that cash dissapears and no one will want anything to do with GFRD.
cc2014: Only investable as they exit the bottom of the cycle imho. However... Even I, who I suspect is far more bearish on the prospects of this sector than 95% of the readers on here is beginning to look at the share price with surprise. Perhaps not at the price but the speed of the fall and on how little volume. The share price isn't enough to excite me to buy but it is my very broad guess that the share price should stabilise soon. Further legs down may come as just how bad a state the economy is in will become more evident even to the most optimistic of investors. Mind you 50p on Kier doesn't look so far away now either...
careful: A dangerous sector in the past, the CLLN disaster (and others) scare us off, we wonder if this sector is un-investable. But a contrarian view must be that lessons have be learned. Project management, the bidding process etc. GFRD must stand a chance of prospering. The Forth Bridge, Wimbledon Roof, Flood defences, even the Aberdeen bye pass show that this company has the skills and know how. If HMG are serious about infrastructure spending, then GFRD must be in the right place at the right time. The pressure on wages and recruitment will ease as unemployment rises. Todays share price seems well oversold on a risk/reward basis.
netcurtains: EI: I'm sure the document is there but surely its a one line simple answer as to why share price collapse since January? I got from the document this; " Certain of the NewCo Group’s businesses are supported by demand from UK Government policies with regard to investment in civil and social infrastructure, most notably in the education, transport, health, public utility, renewable energy, secure establishment and defence sectors through direct government contracts, joint ventures and PPPs. Any change in government or in government policies, programmes or procurement methodologies could adversely affect revenues and/or profitability. " It seems to me, if anything the government is going to spend LOADS MORE not less.... (they have already stated as such).... So clearly we should expect share price to rise not fall.
cc2014: A couple of things Galliford are not a new company. They've been around for years before the split into 2 companies. I have a share certificate from many years ago showing a share purchase at 15p. Of course I sold at around 17p but that's life. The window dressing on the June accounts is usual and happens every year and is done to some extent by every listed company. Subbies always moan about this and rightly so. I don't think there is a way to fix it though. These posters on Twitter are front running their positions. They rarely have any more skill than you and I, just followers who jump on the bandwagon. They buy, they post on Twitter, the price goes up on the back of their followers and they sell and move onto the next stock. They tend to trade certain types of stocks with enough liquidity they can get a decent sized position on to make it worth their while. What is most interesting though that even with this advantage most of them blow up their accounts. I've seen very many of these people come and go over the years. So, if this has been ramped to death on Twitter and the price still falls, what next? Well those rampers know they can't ramp it anymore and regardless of whether they have won or lost on the trade they know that if they don't get out first, the price is going to go lower as all the short term punters leave for the next hot stock. If you start with a 3% margin and margins get tighter plus you've got a whole load of Covid costs where do profits go? I know we'll issue an RNS showing 5% loss at divisional level. Wft does that mean? What's the margin after central overheads? That would be useful. And we'll withdraw guidance too. GFRD may or may not be worth 102p but I don't see how you can work out what it is worth and large shareholders don't like that. They've learnt from history that lack of transparancy equals problems down the road. Maybe at 102p it's not in the share price. Maybe it's not but I still don't see how you can work it out.
gbh2: Dr, I've have been on Hold and would have stayed there IF the Trend in Housing & Construction hadn't taken a sudden turn for the better, as you indicate above there appears to be a Government move towards a significant investment in these sectors. Admittedly yesterday's purchase increased my ave GFRD share price but it's still way below the current price and imo the Trend is up, that said most of this months spare cash went into TW on the 6th Feb @ 222p a share because for me GFRD is just a Punt until we have some solid information.
waspfactory: To be honest, I'd rather take a hit on GFRD share price than the HS2 white elephant go ahead!
