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

aishah: McCarthy & Stone share price rises after retirement home builder reports 33 per cent revenue growth hxxp://www.cityam.com/239182/mccarthy-stone-share-price-rises-after-retirement-home-builder-reports-33-per-cent-revenue-growth Chief executive Clive Fenton: "Our strategy is helping to deliver strong top-line growth as we continue to address increasing market demand for retirement housing driven by the UK’s rapidly ageing population. The UK’s population is maturing at a fast rate, but continues to suffer from a chronic undersupply of suitable retirement properties of the type we provide. McCarthy & Stone is uniquely placed to capitalise on this opportunity."

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.

saintloup: It's worth noting that the annual report shows that a number of board members, including the Chairman, John Sanderson, have options with an exercise price of 40p. Obviously those options were granted some time before the hoo-ha with Kingstreet Media which so damaged the share price. Still, that level of exercise price gives some indication of what senior management originally thought the intrinsic value of the business was. Which suggests that, now things are more secure, the price might have some way to go even yet. I bought at 6p in May by the way.
