speedsgh: MCS share price is going nowhere until the uncertainty re their exemption or otherwise from the proposed changes to ground rents is removed. I am expecting 'otherwise'. The market wants clarity. Continued "subdued conditions within the secondary market" doesn't help either. Not really much positive for the market to feed off in today's statement. Aimho.
speedsgh: Some concerted buying by the board amounting to just over £91k, although not convinced it is enough to be seen as sending a major signal. But perhaps it is an indication that the board feel that the share price has now fallen far enough & is good value as a long term buy? Director/PDMR Shareholding - HTTPS:// Recent share price action would suggest that markets believe that the company's hope that they might be exempt from the proposed changes to ground rents for the retirement housebuilding sector is a forlorn one. Rowan Baker (CFO) bought 7,341 @ 135.2p = £9,925 Jacqueline Fenton (wife of CEO) bought 30,000 @ 135.2p = £40,560 Gary Day (Land & Planning Director) bought 20,000 @ 135.2p = £27,040 Lisa Tonkiss (spouse of COO) bought 10,000 @ 135.2p = £13,520
jopper74: Really disappointing share this one.......good steady growth company so don't understand why its share price is below the 220 mark
walbrock82: For those who are lacking in McCarthy & Stone knowledge, here is how you should interpret their annual results: - 1). 2017’s results were alright with sales rising by 4% thanks to home price rising by 3%. PBT was down by 1%, as profitability fell to 16% from 20%. 2). Cash balance fell to £40.7m from £119m is mainly from paying a £28.5m dividend and repaying loans of £45m. There is no new issue of equity. 3). Although net cash profit was a negative £3.8m, this was due to a smaller increase in cash inflow from payables. And management has said H2 2017 saw a recovery in sales volume from H1 2017. Their forecast outlook makes for some interesting reading. Apparently, McCarthy & Stone acquired 3,164 plots and estimate the cost of build totals £472m, this equates to £149k per unit, down from last year £179k per unit. That would increase the homebuilder margins! And management seems to confirm this with the aim of achieving ROCE of 25% over the medium-term. So, with a 25% ROCE in say the next two to three years, then we have to assume the following: Currently, Capital Employed is around £755.5m, assuming it rises to £790m-£830m. Then, a 25% operating margin is applied giving operating profit of between £197.5m and £207.5m. Next, we deduct 20% and 2% net interest costs, then net profit range from £161.9m and £170m. Therefore, we are looking at a 2 to 3-year forward PE of between 4.98 times and 5.22 times by 2020.

chickenrun1: I am really surprised MCS has performed so poorly finkle. I have been a long term holder based on the ageing population being a big positive catalyst for them and perhaps it will be but the share price isn't reflecting it at the moment.
pillion: Why the huge 2.2% jump in share price today ? Not holding, but tempted; chart looks good
crystball: This trading update is sound in historic numbers. There is a note of caution looking ahead, but clearly the business model works. In a year from now it might be difficult to beat today's announced figures. Quite where the share price should settle is anyone's guess. There has been some recovery in share price post the Brexit vote. Let's see what happens at the open. My guess is back down to 200p. It'll be interesting to hear the conference call.
mike24: check out mcs price highs of 2006/7 on rmv values took a big dip up to 2015, over the last 18months prices have recovered 30/40% depending on area, sp looks way undervalued nai this is not about other builders ( who could still take a hit on London sites) but the chronic shortage of suitable retirement homes
danpollard: Deutsche Bank are MCS corporate brokers so its strange they put out a broker forcast for 256p when their job is to ramp up the share price. Are they trying to bring the price down to pick up a few for cheap on Monday in order to profit from pre-results on Tuesday? Drop could also be a tied in with the general malaise surrounding house builders at the moment. Crest Nicholson is down 8% in 2 days after for example. A few analysis have said we're at the top of the cycle, valuations are high, house price inflation is up, slow down in housing prices and demand, Brexit uncertainties etc take your pick.
