Likewise I have just offloaded my entire holding which was of a fair size (trades not yet showing). Was pleasantly surprised at the price I got. Sold to preserve capital while uncertainty of level of re-based dividend persists. I hope to be back relatively soon however. GLTA

It may not be too bad. PCTN shares dropped initially on the news of the divi reduction, but recovered quickly. IC reckoned SREI's cover was 70%, add in the management enhancements and the reduction in interest costs and we could be close to full cove. Even so, at the very least, I expect a cut to 0.75p per quarter. I have just sold my holding in anticipation of a drop when the cut is announced. This could be as early as next week when we are due for the next dividend announcement.

Picton Property went down the same road last year: Long term refinancing arranged with Life companies then a cut in dividend to 100% cover. Last time I looked dividend cover for SREI was around 65% with planned management developments due to increase that to 80%. So at least 20% drop on the cards.

Cut inevitable - no longer a distinct possibility. Reynards is a disgrace. Should be reversed upon appeal to Government. Many Labour councils view development as profiteering by capitalist Rachmanns; and vote down even the most sensible of proposals which would benefit their electorate directly and indirectly through later taxation. Well timed switch Elmfield.

"The successful refinancing of the loan will allow the Board, in turn, to consider the longer term sustainability of the dividend. The terms of the new loan will be taken into account alongside other factors, including the recent planning refusal at Reynards Trading Estate in Brentford. The Board will update shareholders in due course." Sound ominous. Winterflood reckon "dividend cut is a distinct possibility" At least long tern financing has been sorted on reasonable terms.

Yes, I would agree - I'm also more interested in maintaining NAV growth and having a sustainable covered dividend. The Property Income Trust model of distributing capital doesn't really work in today's property world.

bisiboy - the point about owning 'secondary property' is that periodic refurbishment needs to progress as leases come up for renewal in order to maintain asset value: it can collapse otherwise. Hence you need headroom on loans, or retained earnings, or asset sales which take out non-performers. So far, SREI has managed the last one well - I'd be relaxed if they dropped to a covered dividend as total return is more important (to me) than paid-out income. Investor's Chronicle had a substantial article a couple of weeks ago highlighting the pros and cons of this kind of propco - SREI was one of their suggestions. Looking at the recent posts here, I'd back the asset managers (Schroders - good) to get the right result for shareholders. So I'd agree with you 'solid long term hold' and still be comfortable with a dividend cut from 3.52p to something like 2.3p. On discounts, these companies seem to be pretty tight: SLI is at a small premium, FCCP at a larger one. Any propco on a significant discount to NAV has either a known problem or a sceptical audience.

i dont see why they need to cut the dividend now they have re financed. planning news is will come very shortly i think and divi ca be maintained through their management and trading activities and cash reserves. now i think a solid long term hold

i believe picton had a blended rate of 4.8% so was a little dissapointed we couldnt do better.maybe the amortisation picton have made the difference. would like to hear some positive news regarding reynards planning application soon.

Correct topvest - this is another of the favourable consequences of the new deal. The funding is in place for many years to come at a modest cost. As you say prospects look good going forward. In my opinion there are more reasons to hold than to sell.

The debt cost will be nearly 15% lower going forwards - 5% versus 5.7% - this will help build more dividend cover. I think today's announcement is good news. They can start again from a sound financial position and long term funding in place. There may be a small reduction in the dividend, but prospects here now look pretty good in my view.

Yes, I was effectively saying that one can expect a dividend adjustment downwards. That will improve the company's position still further. The market will react positively to that, since this stock is not really rated by it's dividend percentage, but by a combination of factors which is presently improving (and will be improved still further by a dividend reduction). Whilst I don't disagree that the NAV discount has firmed up considerably, that is simply a reflection of the overall mix of improving parameters. The share price may not have much upside in the near future, but neither does it have much downside potential, and a dividend reduction will not change that analysis.

Agree with that but you have to hand it to the team running this just how good they are, what else will yet surprise us?

I am not so sure about that redsonning. The dividend here is uncovered at present and I wouldn't be surprised to see a reduction at some stage. The discount to NAV is now also rather tight compared to many other quality property stocks.

The new financing is excellent news for the company, which is why the shares are starting to rise. It is not logical to suggest that the share price is over valued following this significant improvement in the company's loan arrangement. The share price is most certainly not driven by the dividend (which is indeed somewhat high). We have seen this in the recent examples of Picton (when the share price rose following a reduction in the dividend, and in the IRP/IPT situation where the same thing is in the process of happening. In property stocks the decision about the level of dividend is simply a balance between taking cash now and leaving enough for the company to develop it's property portfolio further. Hence when the balance is wrong (for example when the dividend is too high) the company finds it's share price being negatively affected since the market fears future NAV decline. Putting that situation right allows the share price to return to its underlying value level.

red army - follow many of us looking for the best value plays over on the CP+ thread. CIC was a great recent winner, with further to go IMO. DSC well worth researching - it was one of those mentioned in the excellent IC article this time last week...

I'm out. Suspect the divi will have to be cut. Will look again then.

I agree SKYSHIP, I was hoping to see these swap costs diminish and add to NAV ... of course they will have a better interest rate and so will help support the dividend. But not enough play here for me so I'm out. Thankfully someone likes them becasue I've sold over 200k from various accounts without problem at between 41.39 and 41.45p. It was good, but now I think we have better plays in this space.

I admit SREI has the better portfolio, but there seems to be a value disconnect here. Still, the Market says I'm wrong...today at least!

I have already discounted a drop in the dividend to 3p per annum, Skyship, same as PCTN. I reckon PCTN is the pick of the two, but WDIK? Who has the best portfolio?
