mark1000: Suspect Prothero has kitchen sinked so he can take the aclaim through a long term share price improvement scheme and next year may look to split construction and housebuilding surely he will realise it has to be done as its holding back Linden.
careful: Just a couple of weeks ago we were expecting £180m after CLLN problems sorted. A diversified company going well, recovering from a set back. Shareprice reached almost £11, but then the shock. What a share price collapse. Are things that bad. What will this strategic review bring. Do investors fear another CLLN? The information we do have does not justify this share price collapse. All trust is lost.
careful: The call in the Sunday Times to get out of construction and concentrate on Linden House builders seems retrospective wisdom. The Aberdeen Bye Pass and the new Forth Bridge are impressive projects to have been a part of, both significant achievements. A pity GFRD were tangled up with CLLN and did not cost that impressive Queensferry crossing bridge properly. The Sunday Times article did say that some in the City believed that GFRD had become 'an incredibly cheap business' after the recent share price collapse. Let us hope the latest CEO is the man, now that he has the top job. We were badly misled by Truscott a few short weeks ago. Things seemed promising with a decent profit in a troubled year. Then he jumps ship. Amazing he is not held to account.
andyj: Seems like mean reversion to me. Average share price for the past 29 years has been 4.50. Indeed until 2011 it was around 2.00 but then shot up seven fold. That was always likely to be retraced and so it is. I will not be buying for a while yet.
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.
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.
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.
