inntolife: Ed, subtly different but FORT seem to be doing a bit better at the moment. Oh well so long as they both increase, although I would prefer for IBST to beat the pants of FORT :)
inntolife: Just a quick note to say that I bought some of these on the 16th September. Since then I have been waiting for comments to come up here, as yet nothing which is interesting as I also have a holding in TW. On that board I have seldom seen such drivel I have so far filtered five posters. It is very refreshing to have sensible posters (looking bad over the historic posts) to read. Good luck to all who have invested in IBST.
edmundshaw: Silly target price IMO. In a couple of years' time this will be back over £2 and maybe over £3. Forterra (FORT) results out today. Recovery is looking good, although they made a small loss for H1 they have also taken the chance to cut some costs and restructure. While some of that is specific to positioning themselves for future fallout for COVID, I get the impression that a useful proportion will be efficiency improvements that they have had the time to consider and implement due to the cessation of most of normal business.
wad collector: I see that there was a Times hold recommendation last week and JPM reduced their target price to 175 from 190 FWIW.
lord mandelbaum: Accept the comments below however still think there's room in a portfolio for some bricks and mortar. What intrigues me is how come the housebuilders (ok, not all of them) have done reasonably well and the brickbuilders less so? In the earlier part of this year I was happily trading RDW, PSN, IBST and FORT and they all more or less moved in tandem. Does anyone have any insight as to why IBST and FORT might have de-coupled from the housebuilders?
cottlet: One has to ask, what were people buying in the last 3 months. Certainly not houses. Computers, computer programmes and things to do with the cloud and udating computers so they could work at home. So for me...……...although this may be a read herring, a company like Computercentre is far more attractive. And what else have people been doing during the last three months? Dabbling in share.....Hargreaves or AJ Bell. We have heard of the youngsters entering the market. CFD's CMC markets Computer games Games Workshop Team 17 Covid 19 related Synairgen and Tristel etc Food..Ocado and Premier Foods Are these all has beens and is Ibstock going to storm ahead.....?
lefrene: Building materials don't always get imported because of shortages, they get imported to save surprisingly small amounts of money. A few years back I took a 40' box to a builders merchant on the west side of Cardiff, when it was opened it contained 26 tonnes (on pallets) of basic concrete blocks! I asked the yard manager who signed for the load, how much was saved by importing these blocks from Greece rather than buying local. "Almost £100" was his reply, that's £100 for the entire load, not per pallet. Obviously Ibstock have been in the trade for a very long time through many downturns, and my guess is that they are doing the right things. Building a new plant in the downturn should enable them to get it done at a favourable price and have it up and running as hopefully things begin to improve. Plus with Brexit some materials may not be so cheap to import, there could be more of a swing towards buying British. But how deep, and how long will the downturn last is the unknown quantity. Such is the damage being done to the economy that I expect to see large scale government backed housing schemes happen before too long, perhaps next summer? Is Ibstock cheap now at £720 million? Not to my mind it isn't, but that's just my opinion, thus I will watch and wait.
erogenous jones: There will be a short uplift in house prices IMO as a consequence of the Stamp Duty change in England - nothing announced in Wales - and the potential for builders to complete as many dwellings as possible. Next year, however, is going to be a very different kettle of fish, IMO. Why? Well, simply because there are going to be a huge uplift in redundancies, particular in the white collar middle management roles, the very people that have aspiration for larger properties and, presumably ever greater borrowings. And that, I'm afraid will potentially lead to the beginning of a downturn that tends to last around 18 months. Markets had a sharp correction in March but have for the most part recovered. My gut feeling is that in September markets are going to start to gradually soften and continue to soften as the economic impact on substantial companies that have run out of accounting trickery to flatter earnings. But bricks are going to be needed for repairs as well as new builds. I would not be surprised if the share price tracks sideways for a couple of years in the range 150p - 200p. Brexit will have little or no impact IMO.
wad collector: Added a few at 177. Acknowledging the slowdown/recession/covid effect , providing IBST stay solvent , the demand for bricks will return. Hopefully IBST is as well placed as its competitors, so seems a reasonable long term ploy. Wouldn't bet the farm on it though.
husbod: Hi EJI've been in Forterra for a while and have this on my watch list. Bricks are a basic necessity it's just a question of how many.Not sure I agree with you about house price falls. I've been around possibly even longer than you and have a professional interest in properties so have seen what has happened in a series of recessions. Basically when we were not such a crowded island house prices rose and fell with the general economy but now we've got several million more people the demand for housing is massive and this will continue to underpin prices imo.Only people who have to sell will drop their prices. Everyone else will simply stay put..Travis Perkins also looks interesting imo.
