Don't forget the special divi. An initial interim dividend of 3.3p per share (2011: 3.15p) amounting to GBP4.1m was paid on 15 October 2012, and a final ordinary dividend of 6.7p (2011: 6.35p) is recommended, making the ordinary dividend 10.0p for the year (2011: 9.5p). In addition, a supplemental interim dividend of 6.0p (2011: 4.0p) is declared, based upon the underlying performance of our Transaction Advisory business. Taken together, the ordinary and supplemental dividends comprise an aggregate distribution for the year of 16.0p per share, representing an increase of 19% on the 2011 aggregate dividend of 13.5p. The final ordinary dividend of 6.7p per ordinary share will, subject to shareholders' approval at the Annual General Meeting on 8 May 2013, be paid alongside the supplemental interim dividend of 6.0p per share on 13 May 2013 to shareholders on

Yep, hit £7 but did you see the astronomic rise from 2003 to 2006? Went from 60p to 687p in 3 years, ie 10 bagged in 3 years. This rally started from 175p in 2008 or 275p in 2012, depending where you want to start from but I bet over the next few years there's scope to multi-bag still imo. All imo CR

Reached circa 750 in distant past (2008 I think) before collapse to circa 200 the following year. Profits are much higher now (I think) but dividends may not have fully recovered earlier levels if you leave out special dividends. Record of the last few years against the financial and economic background is impressive.

15% earnings growth forecast for each of the next two years, way conservative imo. 3% yield. Have a look back in history and see how fast these have risen when housing starts to pick up imo. All imo/dyor etc

I think it was only that stock placing that knocked these back or else they'd be £7 a share by now imo - just read the results statement again imo:  14 March 2013 Savills plc ("Savills" or "the Group") PRELIMINARY RESULTS FOR THE FULL YEAR ENDED 31 DECEMBER 2012 Savills plc, the international real estate adviser, today announces a strong performance across the Group reflecting improving markets and the positive impact of prior years' acquisitions and appointments Key financial highlights · Group revenue up 12% to £806.4m (2011: £721.5m) · Group underlying profit before tax* up 21% to £60.8m (2011: £50.4m) · Group profit before tax up 36% to £54.2m (2011: £40.0m) · Underlying basic EPS up 22% to 35.3p (2011: 29.0p) · Total dividend for the year up 19%. Final ordinary and supplementary interim dividends total 12.7p per share (2011: 10.35p) taking the total dividend for the year to 16.0p per share (2011: 13.5p) * Underlying profit is calculated on a consistent basis in accordance with note 5 to the preliminary statement Key operational highlights · Group performance benefiting from strategic acquisitions and recruitment during the past few years which are delivering market share gains and margin improvements in core markets · Transaction Advisory revenues up 13% and underlying profit before tax up 36% driven by strong performance in Asia Pacific and an improved share of Prime Central London commercial transactions; UK Residential business remains strong with revenues up 2% · Record year in Asia Pacific business with profits up 18% to £32.6m · Continuing strong growth across Savills non-transactional businesses with Consultancy revenues up 20% and Property and Facilities Management revenues up 8% · Cordea Savills revenues up 13% on AUM up 29% to €4.4bn, through the combination of acquisition, new mandates, fund launches and inflows into existing funds Commenting on the results, Jeremy Helsby, Group Chief Executive, said: "I am delighted to report a strong set of results from the Group in 2012 with record revenues up 12% and profits up 21%. Our positions in both prime commercial and residential markets have enabled us to benefit from improving transaction volumes through 2012, particularly in the final quarter in Asia and the UK. We have reduced the losses in Continental Europe and our Investment Management business grew assets under management substantially. The changes we have made to our business over the last few years, including acquisitions, recruitment and restructuring, have improved the Group's underlying profit margin. We have made a strong start to 2013, particularly in the UK and Asia, and we expect to make further progress across the Group in the year ahead. We anticipate delivering continued improvements in our businesses in Continental Europe and the US although we are mindful of the risk of further weakness in some of these markets. Our Investment Management business has a good pipeline of funds to invest through its European platform. In Asia, whilst we anticipate that the most recent in a succession of control measures imposed in Mainland China and Hong Kong will have an impact on transaction volumes towards the second half of the year, the medium and long term characteristics of these markets remain compelling. In summary, we have started 2013 more strongly than last year and we are confident in the Group's prospects for the coming period." ------------------------------------------------------- Trading update May 9th last year What other co is benefitting from Asia and London house price rises as much?

housing revival was built into the price when it recently touched six quid, in the US 24% of the revival are investors, a great many chains started by btl's in the UK, don't see much more immediate up side in svs price but rightmove looks to go further as the volume in turnover will increase outside the London area, the ripple effect dyor

Basically the same. Savills was performing well on Tuesday morning after UBS upgraded its stance on the stock from 'neutral' to 'buy', saying it sees further upside from a global real-estate recovery. The broker said it has turned more positive on Savills following some near-term share price weakness - before Tuesday, the stock had fallen around 11% over the past month. "We believe that Savills remains well placed to benefit from a continued recovery in global real estate markets. Specific sources of upside include: reversing losses in Continental Europe, cost control and further transaction volume growth," UBS said. The broker expects Savills to break even on the Continent in 2014 and for the pre-tax margin to increase by 140 basis points (from 2012-2014) to 8.9%. This drives its forecast for full diluted earnings per share to increase 30% to 44p in 2014. While the company is exposed to the cyclical transaction markets, UBS still believes it has "significant defensive attractions". Nevertheless, the two biggest risks are sustained weakness in Continental Europe and a larger-than-expected impact of government property policy measures in China and Hong Kong. A 610p target price for the shares was maintained. The stock was up 2.84% at 525.5p by 10:21 on Tuesday. BC

0639 GMT [Dow Jones] UBS upgrades Savills (SVS.LN) to buy from neutral, keeping its price target unchanged at 610p. Savills remains well-placed to benefit from a recovery in global real estate markets, UBS says. It identifies scope for upside potential in a reversal of losses in Continental Europe, cost control and further growth in transaction volumes. While the company benefits from exposure to cyclical transaction markets, UBS says it also has significant defensive attractions. "Its non-transactional businesses proved resilient during the credit crunch," it notes. Shares closed Monday at 511p.(jaya.matta@dowjones.com)

Hi all - I got into this one by chance, just happened to be looking at biggest losers on 27/3 the day of holding RNS (must of been a slow day) plus property is my thing. Anyway, couldn't see why the 8% loss so thought I'd give it a go. Added a few more the day before XD knowing that it would go down but I can't see why this won't get back up to around 570.00 quite quickly. Results looked good, increase in dividend etc. etc. Nice add to my little list of gems me thinks. GLA DF
