Very strange the high volume and increase yesterday but Evil Knieval and Lucien Mears the well known short sellers and market commentators gave a 40 minute Q & A presentation at the Master Investor Show today. There were about 1500 investors and company directors in the audience and they gave four star picks to SELL for 2009. They were... Punch Taverns LSL Property Carpetright Proteome There may be a knock on effect from that.

5 million shares apparently bought at 105p yesterday. Quite astonishing why anyone would want to risk £5 million on this and how they can possibly think it is worth it at 105p?

Someone is hoovering up big time. Around 10% of market cap traded already so there is a big shift is going on. I wonder if Harris has found a block buyer for their big stake.

IMS and AGM Statement (LSL Property ServPLC) 22 April 2009 Interim Management Statement & AGM Statement LSL, a leading provider of residential property services, incorporating estate agency, financial services and surveying businesses is today holding its 2009 Annual General Meeting and issues this Interim Management Statement. Roger Matthews, Chairman of LSL, will make the following statement: "We are pleased to report that, against a market backdrop that continues to be challenging, overall the Group has traded slightly better than our expectations. The volume of house purchase transactions continue to be at an historic low, but more recently the level of buyer enquires and activity in our estate agency business has been encouraging. The Group will also benefit from a substantially reduced cost base in 2009 and the continued growth of counter-cyclical income stream businesses, such as lettings and repossessions asset management. Turnover for the quarter ended 31 March 2009 compared with the same period in 2008 was as follows: * Group turnover for the period was down by 28% * Surveying turnover was down by 25% * Estate Agency and Financial Services turnover was down by 32% Outlook: The Board remains appropriately cautious about the outlook for 2009 and the Group will continue to demonstrate strong cost control and cashflow management. The systemic lack of liquidity in the lending market and concern around unemployment are expected to continue to suppress UK housing market activity in the short to medium term. As a consequence, the timing of a return to more "normalised" market conditions remains uncertain. Against this background, the Group continues to demonstrate an encouraging level of resilience, is well capitalised and well placed to deliver significant growth as and when market activity improves."

I have tried to short this again over the last few weeks, but cannot due to no stock available for 'borrowing'. Maybe this is why it is going up as no-one can open short positions!

They do seem to be involved in the situations where the share price goes up when you would expect it to go down....then make a clever exit !!?

Is this the same Harris Associates (dipping under 19% holding) that has been seen in and out of Carpetright shares? The US 312 area telephone code matches with the Chicago-based Harris Associates holding CPR shares.

Well I'm glad I didn't open a short on this at 40p as recommended in some quarters or I would have lost double my money. Just shows how hard shorters can be squeezed by even a no-hoper stock like this. Watching with interest but it looks like it could go higher yet.

Am copying this across from Stockopedia as there's little interest or holders, long or short, over there (http://www.stockopedia.co.uk/forum/view/LSL/2492): I closed my short last week when the share price was ~92p, and LSL has continued to climb to 107p, valuing the business at £110m. For a company recording a loss in 2008 and £50m of debt puts the stock on an exceptionally high rating. The question though is whether to re-short at this level, stay on the sidelines for a while longer, or leave well alone? I'm wary of both further short-closing (seems to have dried up today) and also with the purchases arising from anyone purchasing the basket of stocks in the new Professional Services Index (see post above) which, given LSL's illiquidity, could drive the price higher. However you look at it though, it is on a mad valuation!

Just trying to work out what the free float would be. The 2008 annual report lists the following major shareholders (>3%) at 2 March 09. Where is Harris Associates who are supposed to have >19%? Mortstan Nominees Limited 16.72% State Street Nominees Limited 15.97% BPE General Partner Limited 9.14% Barclays Industrial Investment 5.06% David Newnes 5.36% The exec directors have, I think, a further 21%. Sharecrazy's major shareholder transactions do not agree with the info in the annual report: 12/11/2008 Simon Embley 8.94% 17/07/2008 Harris Associates 19.29% 17/03/2008 David Newnes 5.36% 24/01/2008 Sheffield Asset Mgmt 16.36% 29/11/2007 Paul Latham 6.6% 28/11/2007 Dean Fielding 5.87% 17/10/2007 Barclays PLC 18%

I am still hanging on in there and this is now actually higher than where I started from memory. Is anyone going to the AGM ? The Annual General Meeting of LSL Property Services plc will be held on Wednesday 22nd April 2009 at 2.30pm at the Offices of Buchanans Communications, 45 Moorfields, London EC2Y 9AE. Copies of the following documents have been despatched to shareholders:

Like many here on the short side, I have been stung here the last few weeks, and I finally conceded that I could pay no more margin calls on Tuesday morning so closed out. It has been one very expensive lesson that the market can stay irrational longer than I can stay solvent (fortunately it's not that bad!). Looking at the daily trades this week has seen lots of round thousand-lot sized buys which I believe correlate with shorts closing out i.e. £30 per point equals 3,000 shares, £60 per point equals 6,000 shares, and so on. And I guess it has been easy for MMs to keep ticking the price up to trigger capitulation or stop-losses here. I've also just noticed this story of the launch of a new index, The Professional Services Index, which includes 35 firms including LSL. One wonders if purchases of PSI this week have led to some of the purchases I thought were short-closing above? http://www.propertyweek.com/story.asp?sectioncode=274&storycode=3137017&c=1 Anyway, I have thought this loss-making business has been overvalued for some time, even down below 40p. That was proved woefully wrong in the short-term, but at 100p now I will have another crack at it in the not too distant future.

Interestingly, over the last 8 trading sessions the share price has risen over 35% from 70.5 to 95.5 on volume of less than 300,000 shares. I wonder if someone is hunting for stops to clean out the bears.

Can't believe it, stop loss on my short activated, because of the crazy rise in share price! Price has almost trebled yet housing market still in dire straits and predicition is for it to get worse! Where am I going wrong, my so called 'great value' shares go nowhere and this debt ridden company with no earnings visibility for the next two years goes and trebles in a matter of months! Maybe back to short again.

hopelessly overvalued, look at the balance sheet, no wait look at the income statement!! ...question is : is the housing market recovering? current valuation suggests 'yes' is the answer.

I can only imagine so, I guess some people were expecting more. I was expecting greater write offs. I really don't like their Balance sheet. I can't see the upside here for a while, the housing market is surely going nowhere. People I know that were thinking of looking for a house have canned the idea, and no-one is trading up right now.

David - good spot, didn't see that when I scanned through. The interesting thing about the surveying nos is that although they hold them up as the saviour of LSL and as increasing on the prior year, when you compare LFL and strip out the acquisitions effect made halfway through the prior year they are actually down....and they are taking a massive annual hit to amortisation for these acquired contracts.

This bit was interesting lurking in the Surveying division review... In line with the deterioration in the UK housing market, the Board has decided that it is appropriate to make a one off exceptional increase in its provisions of GBP2m to take account of the increase in the number of recovery claims made and likely to be made for inaccurate valuations.
