I dont think you missed it, watch for a rebound to 2nd week in August and keep an eye on the oil price, we may have a lull before the storm -

goggin you are only seeing the start of the property crash, it started in America a year before uk/ireland and prices in america are still falling. I do hope kingspan can pull themselves up to at least 7.50 again as i took some profits this morning and i`d be gutted if they plunged and i missed it.

Hi FOT I feel and this is only a personal opinion - I could be completely wrong - Property needs to drop back to the 04 level before it will look like its worth buying again. people here in northern ireland never really had a property crash before, basically because there was never any real growth here until the cease fire's in 94, priory to that property just limped along and only gained in select areas like Stranmillis in belfast where property was always in demand and rental yields were good. The way I price property is by following long term averages, ie take property back in 1998, the average 3 - 4 bed detached here in N.I. was 50 - 80k. Now if you add and compound at the historical long term rate of 7-8%, that same property would be using 98 as our starting year: say 70k 98 75k 99 80k 00 86k 01 92k 02 99k 03 106k 04 114k 05 122k 06 131k 07 140k 08 150K obviously this depends where you start but around 200k is about right. another way to work out the true value is look at the yield, ie if it rents for £550/ month = £6600 / year / 5% ( .05 ) = 132000 + 2 time yearly salary at average of £30k pa = 132k = 60K = £192k The above is my own way of working out property values but whether people like it or not, the true price will be around these values. My friend has put his 5 bed detached on the market in newcastle co down for £420k, the true value is more like £295K, he is a builder and knows everything, by the time he wakes up to reality, he could be quite a lot older and more than a few pounds short of £420k. In short 100 - 150k of is about right but there is no need to rush to buy, this will last at least another 3 years and possibly 5. because Ireland is such a small place, it may even have a longer effect, there is really nothing to compare with a country with such a tiny population which had such an enormous rise in property values. So many people in early on clearly made a fortune, what they have done with their money is a key question, did they just reinvest in more of the same?

goggin, welcome to this thread, i think its better because you can see the charts and news. I dont blame the brokers after all those boys are just there to milk the system. Also the big shareholders put big pressure on companies nowadays to do buybacks, its just a short tem fix for a long term problem. At the end of the day strong management should put their foot down and preserve their capital.

those idiots at davies stockbrookers are total wasters, advising any company that is so heavly dependant on the building sector to buy back their shares before there is light at the end of the tunnel should be lined up and SHOT AT DAWN - I dispise those people. You would also think that the financial team at KGP would have enough brains to also wait for light at the end of the tunnel, they made so much money on the way up that now they only see the world through rose tinted glasses - will the last one out, please turn out the light.

sleepy Yes i see the 105% rule on a 5 day average. I have also seen buybacks suspended days before bad news were announced.

no buybacks this week so far, the seems reluctant to pay over 6 euros for their own stock, either that or they have seen the latest sales figures and are preparing another profits warning.

fair play to Eugene he saw the writing on the wall and took the right action, selling over 40m euros worth at 20e per share.

Shell-shock as investors flee Irish shares http://www.sbpost.ie/post/pages/p/story.aspx-qqqt=NEWS+FEATURES-qqqs=news-qqqid=34253-qqqx=1.asp Some senior executives in the country's biggest listed companies have seen massive falls in the value of their shareholdings from the highs of early 2007. In reality, many of them have cashed in tens or hundreds of millions of euro over the years. However, the paper value of their stakes is something they all still watch closely. Among the biggest fallers are Eugene Murtagh, chairman of Kingspan, whose stake in the company he founded was worth €800 million in May 2007, but which last week was valued at €207million, a fall of €593 million

We really have nothing in common.The idea that an investor should make a prediction about the 'price' of a share in a company at some future point in time is pure folly.Why would I want to do that? There are many things over which I have no control.That is just one of them.What I do is investigate a company,try to identify the 'best of breed' and then decide if it is reasonably priced.(It's better if I can buy it for less than its worth).Then I let macro events( the economy,price of oil etc.)take care of themselves.I have no interest in making a quick buck.I am working towards wealth accumulation through stocks and other asset classes.Compounding,dividend re-investment and asset allocation all play their part.Do I make mistakes? You bet.(The tech bubble taught me very expensive lessons which I hope I have learned.)I'm not some kind of gadfly that flits from share to share as the 'price action' hots up.I realise that the share price is about the least helpful pieces of information about a company.So you see,we won't see eye to eye.May I suggest that shareholders post on one thread and that the 'others' post on another thread?

OK - all you that are long and cant face reality - post you average price and lets see what happens, if I'm totally wrong and this probably applies to others as well, we will hold up our hands but so far, not one of you that are long have put up a credible argument why this will head north and put a price on it - go on - I challenge you - stop sticking your head in the sand like the so called experts who got this property market so horribly wrong - not one has the balls or creditability to say sorry to the poor unfortunate punters who followed them over the cliff and are now staring into the abyss. No one told them gearing works both ways, big gains on the way up but total wipe out on the way down unless you have very deep pockets or are nimble enough to get out fast - sorry the truth hurts. Call it "Bertie" truth's if you like!
