Guess the 13k late trade was a buy rather than a sell looking at the strength at close

These are looking v good value down here - bought a load and will eagerly wait for the results due on 7 Aug. Expecting another tidy set of results given the positive update at the recent AGM.

cordwainer - the big positive on MGNS for me is that the CEO is the founder with a 10% stake in the business. He's clearly very experienced and he has plenty of skin in the game. So that means that MGNS are going to be a lot more prudent than similar companies when it comes to taking on low-margin work. Re the macro-economic outlook, I reckon that construction has to be one of the few areas that won't be too badly impacted by a change of govt (which is surely inevitable). But whether any investor wants to be exposed to the UK at the moment is a good question. Things don't look good.

I've tried to compare BBY with similar-ish GFRD and MGNS.. Galliford Try's results were back in September and the numbers scream value (or value trap?) after this year's 18% dividend cut (Feb), CEO exit to Crest Nicholson (Mar), profit warning giving £40m hit to consensus (April). And one commentator (Anh Hoang through Motley) points out that 85% of earnings are from its Linden Homes brand ... but i thought the bulk of revenue was still from infrastructure etc ? Adjusted p/e 3.87, div yield 11.8% (cover 1.57), share price approx. at or below NAV.. but again figures based on last year results and only 1 major contract award since, of modest proportions. Briefly googling reviews for their house-building divisions, customers seem generally happier with Balfour (about 3.5 out of 5) than the other two, with Galliford's Linden Homes being the worst. Morgan Sindall doing ok i guess better than BBY on some measures. Both have had contract wins recently since after their last results: MGNS: Sellafield $1.6Bn over 20 yrs, Brentwood BC £500m over 30 years BBY: £1.3Bn Dallas roads (presumably much higher rate of turnover?) Finally it is the touted (but apparently successful) 'Build to Last' programme and the slightly better homebuyer's reviews that swings my vote in BBY's favour. Certain broker targets for both BBY and MGNS currently have about 50% upside. Just not sure if its a good sector to be in in macroeconomic terms right now but looking good value on paper. I'm bit concerned tho about BBY's intangibles (25% - what are they? i tried looking back through company news), ROCE (5% vs MGNS 18.5%), and slightly negative cashflow at last results. Any help, corrections, counterpoints and more forward looking summaries than my rough analysis welcome please :-)

Interesting investor comment on IC: Morgan Sindall. Unlike the largely flawless CSP, MGNS has one weaker ratio. Margin. Currently under 3%. This is expected to increase, but only to just above 3% or so. Such is the nature of the construction sector, these are the margins that they operate with. Add to that the problems with other sector participants - Carillion, Kier etc and the market is cautious But a business in a tight margin sector can thrive if extremely well managed. The proof is in the pudding, MGNS has year end net cash of £207M with a market cap of £518M. Nobody can tell me that MGNS is anything other than a well managed thriving business Growth is difficult to estimate year on year, MGNS forecast modest growth in the previous year, but ended up coming in with 25% growth, again they promise little but deliver strongly. Growth this year is forecast to be flat, but MGNS normally comes in well above forecast. Also, while the divi is c4% this year, the cover is very large, over 3 times. Therefore, at current earnings, even after the dividend has been paid, the growth in balance sheet equity will be around 8%, is this growth any less important to shareholders than earnings growth? But earnings growth comes from MGNS in abundance and even if MGNS have a flatter current year in terms of earnings growth, the growth in balance sheet strength will continue unabated. The trailing PE is just over 9, cash adjust and the mind boggles. Challenging sector, but a great business I find it fascinating to contrast what is happening to the balance sheet of MGNS compared to others in their sector - Carillion is no more, Kier looks doomed, Galliford has problems. The thinning out and the weak performance of many in the sector can only help MGNS. If you were a competent local authority chief, the last thing you want to do is to award a long term development contract to a company that could go bust, it could cost you your job and throw the LA into turmoil. You would not touch the likes of Kier with a barge pole

Morgan Sindall valuation doesn’t reflect the quality, says Numis The valuation of construction company Morgan Sindall (MGNS) does not reflect the ‘quality and growth profile’ of the business, says Numis. Analyst Howard Seymour retained his ‘buy’ recommendation and target price £15.65 on the shares, which were trading at £11.34 yesterday. He noted the strong profit growth in construction and a ‘major scope for recovery’ in partnership housing and urban regeneration. ‘This should drive double-digit earnings growth from 2020 onwards, but in our view also merits a higher valuation going forward as longer term, more predictable profit streams become the drivers,’ said Seymour. ‘Strength of balance sheet, underpinning investment in asset-intensive areas, adds an additional dimension to the quality of earnings argument. A sub eight times price/earnings [ratio] and yield of 5% this year clearly does not reflect the quality and growth profile of the group.’ HTTPS://citywire.co.uk/funds-insider/news/the-expert-view-centrica-barclays-and-purplebricks/a1203259?section=funds-insider&_ga=2.238862656.1788062811.1550832707-226313152.1550832707#i=6

Not too shabby at all - margins increasing - strategy of bidding for higher quality work paying off - best in the construction sector by a long way. Year end net cash 40% of market value.
