Cr With respect, I think you've got this one horribly wrong. The ten year chart shows a classic double top in 2006 & 2007, with a head and shoulders now forming suggesting the price will fall to sub 100p. The short term chart clearly shows the share price is going to break out of the current range quite soon... there are enough bulls such as yourself around to be holding the price up, waiting to dive in on any good news. Obviously the results of March will be crunch time. The international economic troubles have really only just begun IMO; this isn't the time to be looking for any upswing in this sector. Looking again at the ten year chart, we are not now in the economic environment of 1999 to 2005 much less the world of 2006/early 2007, so why anyone imagines there is any upside to the current share price of 250ish is extremely mystifying to say the least. Finally, why would anyone want to buy into London again anyway?.. as soon as the Lisbon Treaty/(ie the EU Constitution) (waiting for the Irish to bow to the pressure) is ratified London will become a regional capital of the EU superstate, with Westminster being able to do nothing about legislation coming from a Brussels which is largely socialist with little to no understanding of, and no sympathy for, the workings of the City of London. The City of London financial institutions and expertise will move out when the legislation gets too damaging - if the Irish are shrewd they will try and get themselves kicked out of the EU and then Dublin can receive the exodus from London. Furthermore, the civil service in London will become increasingly unnecessary, another downer on London house prices.

Property deflation cycles last 6 years on average and this one started in mid 2007. Commercial property is not coming back soon. Look at SGRO and BXTN. Yes there are deals to be done in any market but this is a distressed one. I'm pleased to see SVS is holding up when compared to DTZ but fail to see where the growth in fee income is coming from.

Jock I suspect that foreign buyers are not piling in yet because with the UK's 'strong pound ' policy there is a chance of significant further discounting. I am assuming that there might be an increase in activity in Spring 2010. CR We will find out on 11 March, but my feeling is that SVS are going to have to finance significant losses in 2009, and there must be a risk that they need to raise more capital. I note the movement in the graph, but what I do not understand is why the direction of travel over a period in which they have issued 2 profits warnings. (I will look at consensus forecasts to see if the third bus is on its way!) For the avoidance of doubt I am short in this stock TD

Fair enough but I think the market will disount the recovery very early as far as the shares go. SVS and all the housebuilders bottomed last July and have been rising since. Valuing the builders on PE ratios is pointless and on assets. What's really happening, imo, is that lots of small builders and guys that might have borrowed the money against their house and bought a plot to build their own house are now either bust or can't borrow the money. The big builders are running down their inventories and selling just the completed houses or near completed, they are not starting new ones. This means that when the buying does start again, demand will rapidly outstrip supply. The UK is uniquely placed here. We are very affected by rate changes where so much of the population have large mortgages. Recent rate cuts have reduced the interest on a £150K mortgage by £5250 or £437 a month. Add in the fall in food prices and petrol and that's putting £500 a month into the pocket of some families. £150K is the average price of a house today. "The results of the 2008 ASHE show that median weekly pay for full-time employees in the UK grew by 4.6 per cent in the year to April 2008 to reach £479. Median earnings of full-time male employees was £521 per week in April 2008; for women the median was £412." Office of National Statistics. £27K a year average male with a £21.5K average female wage = £48.5K. A 20% deposit on a £150K house is £30K. That leaves a mortgage of £120K to pay. A bank will lend you 3 times a single wage or 2.5 x joint wage. 2.5 x joint average wage is £121K. By my calculations the average couple with an average wage can buy an average house with a 20% deposit down. Buying could be a lot more affordable than renting and with the gov pumping in £100m into the banks to increase mortgages things have probably bottomed imo. Of course I could be wrong just asthe doomsayers could be too but we are a nation of property fanatics. CR

CR - working in the industry, I can assure you that foreign buyers are not "piling in" although I take on board your point that they might at some point. Banks are NOT lending, and this is affecting commercial loan terms as well as residential mortgages. Spring is on its way, but I would be waiting until next Spring until any form of start to any recovery. This sector is SO relient on bank lending - much more than many believe IMO. Jock

Bought back in today - chart turning up. I hear commercial property sales are stronger than expected since new year. Also the average house in london now off 20% and with the £ fall it means prices have halved for foreign buyers - they are piling into London at this level and if the £ goes lower we'll see more of them. Estate agewnt advertising increasing around here. Rigntmove says there's more houses coming onto the market and I'm hearing the demand for HIPs has soared recently. Spring is on its way - we are a nation of house-obcessed property lovers even in this climate. The gov's £50bn boost to banks to increase mortgage lending announced this week can only help too imo.

Good opportunity to lob a few out at current levels. Housebuilders have had a good run and SVS has got dragged into the slipstream. In fairness SVS looks a screaming bargain compared to the housebuilders but not particularly attractive relative to the rest of the market.

They normally come in threes, and I presume the poison pill (third) will be on the 11th of March, when I suspect they will dispense with the tiresome dividend. TD

Only to be expected. SVS are usually very proactive and strong controllers of thier business. They will have plans in hand to lower costs dramatically. I expect an announcement soon, perhaps post xmas, of office closures and redundancies. We may then see a small bounce from where we are now if the plans are dramatic enough! I will start buying again when price reaches sub £1.50

Nick, looking at these also. However the risk of losing everything with some of these trusts is much higher than with Savills.

SVS is effectively a punt on property transaction market recovering and with that prices stabilising as well. Have a look at the discounts European property trusts as trading at. If markets do stabilise and they can start to make disposals then they are likely to benefit far more than the likes of SVS.

Over the last month I've been looking to buy a number of shares for the longer term, focusing on survivors and looking at profit levels pre the last few years of excess. I don't know how to call the bottom so I'm $ cost averaging over the next 12 months and have money in reserve to buy more of the likes of Savills if they are again sold off. If I was looking at short term trading I wouldn't buy these either, but then again I find it difficult to trade short term.

This is the second profits warning announcement in the last 2 months. Todays news says they will miss the already lowered numbers from a couple of months ago. Not sure why you are so bullish jgoold. Valuation even on 2010 numbers isn't compelling. If you are focusing on them surviving and prospering when conditions normalise. You could make that argument for most of the market where valuations are a fraction of what SVS is currently trading at. Dividend cut is also likely. Bit annoyed I didn't close out partially earlier on. Market has a very bullish hue and shorts are looking to close out of situations as hedgies face redemptions. May support the price for a couple of days but I expect selling to kick in again soon enough.

JG Like ND I am short in these shares. While it is primarily a protective short, I also felt that there were significant exposures to SVS, other than the weak property market. My main concern for the company is the constant anecdotal reports of over valuations by SVS in the good times. The risk to the company is that they are not going to pick up the counter cyclical insolvency work (because the lenders appointing receivers, who have been affected by the over valuations, will not allow them near property), and the risk of legal action for those over valuations. A subsidiary concern is that on the estate agency side there has been a delay in general market conditions flowing through into high value properties. This has now happened and it will impact SVS from now on. TD

If you reset your expectations of Savills post crash to 2003 numbers you have EPS of 18.5 and operating cash flow of Stg 48 mm i.e. trading on a cash flow multiple of less than 7 based on 2003 figures and a PE of 8.5
