There is so much "cash" floating around looking for a deal and it would not surprise me if this company is not on the radar. Cheap it is and the Business Model is sound but the profits are only made either when they sell a parcel to a builder or trade which they have in land or buildings which they have done successfully. BUT they have done this and still the share price is where it was in 2014 although I will grant you that it went as high as 370p. Look at one of the charts above, I live near Cambridge and have been to most of the sites and they are clean and busy so I have nothing to say about the management BUT how do you defend a company if someone comes along and says Move Over..............you have a NAV of some 400p+ and land for HOMES. Its a builder on a merger - shares for shares and all the working capital in place.

Certainly more upside than down even if no fireworks. As solid as cash in a portfolio in my view to offset against more risky trades. Happy to hold

I am not sure how many people really understand the UANC business model - or can be bothered with it. It is a master developer, like the old development corporations, which derisks huge and complex sites so that the infrastructure and planning is in place and then parcels them up for builders. Addressing the point queried by anley, it also does some direct development. So, over time, it is patiently building up an increasingly significant revenue stream from the licence fees that builders contract to pay (akin to a royalty payment stream) - and it also has a growing land bank with very low cost finance in place, which I doubt would be made available to any of the house builders. The company is still fairly young and so the revenue stream is any of a slow burner. For those who are prepared to wait, I think that the share price should start to accelerate in a year or so. In the meantime, it is a fairly low risk option, but maybe not exciting enough for many investors. So, when it announced a couple of months ago that it had secured a resolution to grant planning permission at Manydown (an extremely large scheme of well over three thousand houses, with the possibility of more to come), the share price barely flickered. I am happy to hold, but for the long term.

This company was starting to finally perform in share price terms before Covid struck. It has not recovered much at all since unlike many of the big house builders. Why? I have no doubt that there is an ongoing seller/overhang which is holding things back. Maybe Aberforth which was selling in its last stock exchange announcement a few months back. UK managers have been subject to big redemptions so you cannot help being a seller to keep up. In the meantime the company will be finding its way through the current conditions and is conservatively geared, trading at a big discount to nav. On a medium term view given the required housing stock in the UK it continues to look very well-placed imo with very experienced management. It should continue to develop its large site capability and follow its business model, not start building houses where it has no experience and no expertise and where the capital requirements would explode. There is always the chance of a takeover if it becomes too cheap although most of the big house builders would be unhappy to tie up big capital in a takeover rather than just pick off plot parcels as and when they need them.

The price has settled down and last year the results were announced towards the end of November 2019. The Y/E for this company is 30 September so here we are nearly at the end of their financial year and forgive me but they know what the figures are hence a small movement in share price. I ask all thos who read this BB to go and look at what the share price of this company was 5 years ago................then look at today's price - no one has made a great deal from developing their business model and in fact if it were not for dealing profits this company would have gone nowhere. What this company should do is BUILD the houses itself BUT I don't see that happening so why not sell out for say £4 per share to a National housebuilder such as Bovis. Worth a thought for the Board to consider and with 25% of the equity held by the City is this not the deal they look for in these Covid days?????????

It seems the price is in trouble with over 1m shares traded - who is out and who was buying?

I went back in at 220p and am looking for a 50p uplift. This is a well managed business - in the right place at the right time but the market has just not woken up..............

Good to finally see a bit of life here. I suspect Aberforth selling down has been putting a lid on it, hopefully that is just internal rebalancing from their perspective. Chart wise doesn’t look much in the way of getting back to 3 quid

Now is the time to run the slide rule over this asset rich company........housing is still and will be a big political problem over the coming years.

Setting up for an interesting chart play this. Double bottom on the chart and grossly oversold.

No idea. Can't see any news. Lots of early small trades so maybe it was written up in weekend press or a tip sheet.

and Strategic site plot carrying values 31 March 2019 carrying values on unserviced plots amounted to £28,800 at Alconbury; £24,900 at Wintringham, £20,300 at Rugby; £12,500 at Priors Hall Corby and £6,700 at Newark. In all instances, the March 2019 figures remain below half of current realised sales values having accounted for infrastructure spend and Section 106 costs. The valuations were appraised on the basis of assumed average house prices of £300 per sq. ft. at Alconbury and Wintringham, £280 per sq.ft. at Rugby; £235 per sq.ft. at Priors Hall Corby and £215 per sq.ft. at Newark. All other strategic land holdings were valued at cost at 31 March 2019, including Waterbeach.

EPRA Nav now 340.6p please note The comparison between the current open market retail valuation of standard parcels and the wholesale figures included in our reported EPRA NAV amounted to an estimated GBP203 million, or 41 per cent of EPRA NAV at 31 March 2019. This represents a store of future value. 203m = 236p per share 340.6 + 236 = 577p
