brwo349: This update confirms MCS homes are the safest place for the elderly. The share price has a lot of catching up to do compared with the housebuilding sector in general.

paleje: The Times had a decent piece on them this morning:- McCarthy & Stone was finally finding its way through its own crisis when coronavirus hit. In fact, after steering clear for much of last year, this column recommended buying the housebuilder’s shares in February, when the price was 149½p. They were up ½p, or 0.5 per cent, at 72½p yesterday. McCarthy & Stone is Britain’s biggest builder of retirement homes, with a share of the market of about 70 per cent. It built just over 2,300 properties last year, the average selling price for which was £308,000. The company has reinvented itself after a profits warning last year, calling a halt to an overambitious expansion drive to concentrate on sustaining margins. Crucially, its new approach is built on flexibility: customers can either rent or buy. This cushions the group from much of the vagaries of the housing market in normal times, including by making it a property manager as well as a builder. Now it has closed sites and sales offices, furloughed staff and cancelled the dividend. Government support for wages and the lack of building mean that monthly costs are low, but Peel Hunt thinks it will need its banks to waive covenant restrictions on its debts if the lockdown continues past May or June. If it persists for several months after that, it might also need to turn to shareholders for cash, the broker thinks. Given that Persimmon, Vistry and Taylor Wimpey are resuming works or are preparing to do so, it would be unsurprising if McCarthy & Stone was to follow suit in the coming weeks. The company has an attractive business model, which Covid-19 does not jeopardise. The shares, down 51 per cent this year, are also cheap. The dividend has been cancelled so there is no yield, but the shares trade for only 7.8 times Peel Hunt’s forecast earnings. While obviously a possibility, the prospect of a cash-call does look fairly remote. It’s quite risky, but the share price is an opportunity.

brwo349: At 73p this looks way cheaper than other housebuilders. Its valued at only 50% of the pre-covid share price whereas the other builders have risen much more and are valued at 60%-80% of pre-covid price.

master rsi: 108p +1.80p There is volume as the share price slowly has been moving higher, but today is having a spike as it broke 107.50p the last resistance as Intraday high during the last 10 days The charts at ADVFN are not working properly, especially on the volume side, other places show as 4.2M

hugepants: Yield is 5% now and discount to the tangible NAV forecast today is 15%. Not sure if that makes it worth buying. The share price graph here looks the same as the other housebuilders. If you turned it upside down.

7kiwi: Expect a bloodbath in the share price. Operating profit forecast of £65-80m. And £30m of that is FRI sales. So, underlying once the Ground Rent laws come in is £35-50m. ANd they are going to end up with net debt at the year end - when they should have max cash in the bank. Fenton gone too, and no replacement - so he was pushed.

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://www.investegate.co.uk/mccarthy---38--stone-plc--mcs-/rns/director-pdmr-shareholding/201802221322396826F/ 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
