thanks - yep, management has always been highly rated, which is one of the main reasons I've got the shares, but their relatively high gearing in the current uncertainty is a bit unsettling. If Brexit is resolved amicably, then it will look like a masterstroke, if not, then its a big hostage to fortune.

I've never had a spread between account, ordinary shares only. Best of luck with your holding. It's a strong management team imv, even with Michael's departure.

great timing! out of interest, do you buy the actual shares, or do a spreadbet instead?

Out of those. This may be my last REIT trade/holding for sometime.

Had a small amount before the close. Growing political risks for UK REITS, with Corbyn waiting in the wings, hopefully 2/3 years away yet. Closed out my small LAND trade. No other REIT holdings.

(as a holder), it would be nice to see some directors buying. "The Company uses gearing on a tactical basis throughout the property cycle, being raised to accentuate property performance when property returns are judged to materially outperform the cost of debt and lowered when seeking to reduce exposure to the property cycle." It seems the market is punishing the share price for their current level of gearing, so its their (highly renumerated) acumen that is being doubted,so now would be a good time for them to wade in!

285-290 may be an interesting area to add, if we go that low.

Had a small amount @ 2.98. Under 2.90 would not surprise me on a weaker market day, just imv only.

yep, Land have actually added to their retail exposure this year - spending 330m on 3 sites which seems a bit brave to me - and which has put me off buying some. But helical were obv exposed re their gearing - I think that is why they rushed to announce yesterday that they had sold their retirement villages to L&G at 13% discount to book value. They have 100m conv bond maturing june 2019, and 80m retual bond maturing june 2020 - it would be hard/expensive to roll those over with gearing of over 50% - not going to be cheap with gearing of 43% either! I agree that GPOR is best in class: helical debt has average maturity of 3 years and rate of 4.3% and gearing of 43% great portland is 5.7 years and 2.7% and gearing of 15% I know which i prefer (tho I hold both), and Portland is still looking to sell more in H2!...

Retail exposure is valid, thought about it today as bought a small amount of LAND earlier. Many larger REITS appear to have increased retail asset quality over the last few years, whether that is borne out in the next cycle downturn remains to be seen. I was a little underwhelmed by the HLCL leasing update, may need to re-read the statement. GPOR perhaps the sector pick atm, price can be volatile.

helical has higher gearing, but LAND has more retail exposure (quite a lot in fact). so its swings and roundabouts really - do you agree?

You can now buy LAND on a near 40% NAV discount, is HLCL good value in this context at current levels?.

Out of HLCL as of yesterday morning, may be the incorrect decision. The macro backdrop looks to be more challenging given political instability and slowing GDP. On the flipside the already very considerable discount to NAV may provide support. Good luck to anyone holding.

I tried to answer your question, rather than just ignoring it. Stick with what works for you. And as per my post I sold a few, not all.

On positions where I am less confident of direction, for example buying a small amount of BT.a late yesterday and selling this morning, then will accept a small return for a very short holding period. On hgher conviction positions will usually hold in quantity.

EI, trading them for 10-15p doesn't stack up in terms of risk reward, no matter how long you have been doing it.

Bought down to 2.91, it's not pennies. And have been doing this for nearly 30 years. I set price targets and attempt to stick with those.

Not sure trading for pennies is the way to go. In fact i'm certain it isn't.
