coby4: dropped far far further at first lock down which made no sense as residential property values hadn't suddenly dropped by 25 - 30%. was a great time to buy in and share price topped £3 a few months later. Still a big regulated tenancy portfolio which will be good solid ever popular relatively unmodernised houses and flats. The age profile of the majority of those tenants will mean they are retired and not needing employment to pay rent. I'd be investing more if I had spare cash. Most recently sold a bundle at £3.10 and bought back in at £2.90 - wish i'd waited a bit but it will get back

coby4: Looks good at the moment. Share price has certainly languished behind net asset value for many years. But the PRS sector is already drawing more players in, meaning more competition and falling rents to maintain occupancy. Rents are going to be high first time around, next time it’s second hand and after that it’s dated. Time will tell. But they will never again have the pot of gold that was the regulated tenancy portfolio once its gone. More than happy with increased dividends though

paleje: IC have them as one of their Tips of the Week. IC Tip: Buy at 302p Tip style GROWTH Risk rating MEDIUM Timescale LONG TERM Bull points Rental income growing Rising demand for rented homes Takeover potential Shares trade below forecast NAV Bear points Exposure to UK housing market Slim dividend yield By Emma Powell Grainger (GRI) reached a pivotal moment in its evolution into private rental developer and landlord at the end of last year. The value of its private rental assets surpassed that of its portfolio of regulated tenancy homes following 2018’s £396m acquisition of the remaining 75 per cent stake in GRIP real estate investment trust that it did not already own. That means the group is forecast to earn more money from rental income than lumpier trading profits, which are generated from development work and selling vacated regulated-tenancy homes. This is particularly pertinent against the backdrop of weakening sales transaction volumes. GRI:LSE Grainger PLC 1mth Today change -0.50% Price (GBP) 312.42 The affordability challenges of buying a home have driven demand for private rented sector (PRS) homes, which accounted for 20.6 per cent of UK households in 2019, according to research by the Office for National Statistics, up from 13 per cent in 2007. That figure is forecast by estate agency Knight Frank to rise to 22 per cent by 2023. High demand for Grainger’s PRS assets is evident in an occupancy rate of 97.5 per cent as of the end of September. That – coupled with rent reviews on its regulated tenancies – helped boost rental income on a like-for-like basis by 3.6 per cent. The rate of underlying rental growth for the PRS portfolio accelerated to 3.4 per cent last year, up from 3 per cent in 2018. Grainger’s PRS portfolio consists of 5,597 homes, representing 58 per cent of the total asset base. This is expected to grow to 76 per cent if all 9,104 homes in the pipeline are built. The group aims to secure rental income at gross yields on cost of between 6 and 7.5 per cent on that pipeline. Around 1,000 of these homes are expected to be delivered in 2020, which would add £6m in annual rental income. A joint venture with Transport for London, established last year, could result in the group providing an additional 3,000 homes – and gaining £24m in annual rental income – by 2025. In total, the pipeline has the potential to lift net rent by 141 per cent to £169m at an estimated development cost of £2bn. Deriving a greater proportion of income from rent, rather than from selling homes, should also feed through to greater dividend payments, given management has pledged to pay out 50 per cent of net rental income to shareholders each year. Analysts at Panmure Gordon forecast an annual dividend of 8.2p a share by 2022, 58 per cent higher than last year and representing a 2.7 per cent yield. This is based on net rental income reaching around £100m that year, against trading profits of £67m. That shift should also increase the security of dividend payments, although the company will still have exposure to the fortunes of the UK residential housing market. Profits from property disposals were down 17 per cent last year, although management said that was due to a lower vacancy rate, with the time it took for properties to sell stable at 111 days. The final ‘development for sale’ contract was completed last year, and Grainger will now focus on developing investment assets to retain for the long term. These assets are typically built by third-party developers and forward-funded by Grainger, which makes building less capital intensive. In an environment where interest rates show no sign of being raised in the near term, institutional investors searching for yield have flocked to the UK’s private rented sector, seeing opportunity in the chronic lack of rental housing stock. By the end of June 143,000 homes were completed or in planning, according to research by Savills, up from just 15,000 in the pipeline at the start of 2013. Given Grainger’s existing PRS management platform and expertise, that could make the group a potential takeover target for a large global institutional investor. The sector has already grabbed the attention of CBRE, the world’s largest real estate services group, after it entered the PRS market in July by agreeing the £267m takeover of Telford Homes, a housebuilder that had shifted its focus from building homes for private sale to constructing rental developments for large investors. https://www.investorschronicle.co.uk/tips-ideas/2020/01/02/tap-into-grainger-s-rental-growth-opportunity/

steve3sandal: I can confirm you are not alone. A significant part of my SIPP sits here waiting patiently for a higher dividend. Politically and demand wise they are in a great space, though locking in initial development yields of 7% means there is little scope for misjudgement. I first bought here at 114p perhaps 10 years ago and I was quite full before the Dec 18 rights issue. Taking that up caused me and the share price some indigestion, but yes nicely ahead since, though it's only about 25% on the ex rights price which was around 230p IIRC. Good luck all.

shauney2: Crystal Amber have gone below 3% From citywire UK activist investor Richard Bernstein reduced his holding in the UK’s largest listed residential landlord Grainger (GRI), which recently reported a 39% jump in earnings growth, benefiting from record levels of renting. Bernstein and co-manager Jonathan Marsh reduced their stake to below 3% of the business. The company’s share price is up 19.5% over the last six months. The shares are held in their £214.5 million Crystal Amber fund. Grainger recorded a 13% rise in pre-tax profits in the six months to 31 March to £41.2 million, from £36.6 million year-on-year. In its half-year results, CEO Helen Gordon said the company is expecting to complete a new private rental sector building every two months over the next year and has secured £439 million from a total £850 million target set for 2020. She added: ‘Our strategy to grow rents and simplify and focus the business puts Grainger in a strong position to deliver further sustainable income led growth.’

coby4: Grainger not really in a similar business to British Land or Daejan -although Grainger are diverting into the PRS sector their wholly assets are manly modest properties let to regulated tenants who have been resident since before 1989 when this tenancy type ended. importantly they have security of tenure and the properties are only sold at open market value when vacant - when the tenant has usually passed away or gone into care. the property assets have to be discounted to reflect the fact that if the company had to be liquidated tomorrow the assets could only be sold with the tenants in occupation. saying that though the company has for years had a share price which doesn't match even its true "discounted" value. good to see the recent rise though and will hopefully step up again when the world knows what the heck Trump is doing!
