News, as WJG have bought another planned student housing scheme in Belfast with planning permission - and forward sold it: Http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-40634767 "Belfast student housing scheme bought by new developer 17 July 2017 A planned student housing scheme in Belfast has been sold to a new developer. The site at Little Patrick Street received planning permission in October 2016, following an application by UniCiti LLP. It has now been sold to Lacuna Developments and the Watkin Jones Group. The joint venture partners have developed other student schemes in the city. The Little Patrick Street project currently has permission for 354 student studios in an 11-storey building. Sold to investors A revised planning application proposes to reconfigure the scheme and increase the number of beds from 354 to 430. Watkin Jones and Lacuna have also secured an institutional investor to "forward fund" the scheme. That means the investor pays now and gets control of the building on completion. Watkin Jones/ Lacuna developed Belfast's first major purpose-built student scheme at John Bell House in the city centre. They are currently working on two other schemes at the Athletic Stores building and on the Dublin Road. They have forward sold all their schemes to institutional investors, including a fund managed by the Swiss bank UBS."

4% fall in university applications: Http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/education-40581643 On the supply side, the FT has reported about oversupply of accommodation in some areas. Suggests to me that the forward pipeline for WJG is peaking, as institutions become less keen on the asset class. But there's still PRS and traditional housebuilding.

Residential building continued to outperform commercial work and civil engineering in June. Moreover, the latest rise in housing activity was still the second - fastest since December 2015. hxxps://www.markiteconomics.com/Survey/PressRelease.mvc/9f748a4200ed45fdbc4bc25c843c5f91

Just to clarify. WJG gets two separate significant mentions/articles in the IC this week. 1. The Simon Thomson feature, page 15., where he upgrades Price Target to 225p and says "run profits" 2. Share Tips columns. Page 40 article headed "Watkin Jones' low-risk model" citing the Bull Points of Low-risk business model Strong pipeline Expanding into Private Rental Sector Debt free The article stamps a BUY rating/recommendation on WJG. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP

peters - most of the article describes the firm for those not familiar with it. It does give Peel Hunt's estimates for 2017 and 2018: eps of 13.4p and 15.1p, with dividends of 6.6p and 7.3p. Unfair, I think, to post the whole article.

Cheers EC and jonwig - here's a link: Http://www.investorschronicle.co.uk/2017/06/29/tips-and-ideas/share-tips/watkin-jones-low-risk-business-model-hNO6Dwa6t9erA5d1gDFDIL/article.html "Watkin Jones' low-risk business model Watkin Jones (WJG) was established way back in 1791 and has been building student accommodation since 1999, but only floated on the Alternative Investment Market (Aim) in March last year, having abandoned its construction contracting activities a year earlier. Since then it has come along in leaps and bounds - a reward for being in the right place at the right time."

Thanks EC. The article's conclusion: With institutional investors showing rising interest in PRS investment, the Watkin Jones model could see increased competition. However, its strong track record before float and its end-to-end development skills should support its position. The fast-growing forecast yield and modest forecast PE ratio looks attractive given the capital-light growth prospects. Buy.

It worried me when I see alucabond and trespa cladding on their website under case studies. My theory is that they used it but installed it correctly i.e. firebreaks.

I'm starting to get the feeling that this product was mis-sold to developers/architects, WJG are top builders.

It's included here, don't worry about pieces falling off it's the small part of the problem from ages back but it was this that alarmed me (although it was only 5% of the building and probably not a real issue) "Further south, Bournemouth University has confirmed that a similar type of cladding has been found on one of its student accommodation blocks. The 16-storey building was developed by Watkin Jones for Bournemouth and the Kaplan International College, and currently houses nearly 400 students." It just made me think "if theres one ?" hTTp://www.constructionenquirer.com/2017/06/28/universitys-start-to-strip-cladding-from-student-halls/

It was a large part of portfolio and very profitable - sooner be safe than sorryWill be back in after things have been cleared up - I'll either pay more or less It was the Bournemouth news that swayed me to be honest - the company responded fast to my email with the above though to be fair

I've sold out for now awaiting the result of the following review. “Further to your enquiry we can confirm that during the planning and construction phases of each of our high rise developments we employ Fire Safety Engineering consultants as part of the design team. The works carried out on site follow the Building Regulations. As a Group we take our responsibilities seriously and as a result of the tragic events at the Grenfell Tower we are, alongside our numerous clients, carrying out a review of all completed projects and those currently under construction.”

The PRS sector is going ballistic. WJG are very well-placed as a key developer in this area. They are excellent at throwing up small accommodation blocks and pre-funding them/pre-selling and finding tenants. We have seen that so many institutions want to buy their product. And it's only going to increase. The demand for PRS is enormous from both TENANTS and INVESTORS and fills an urgent need of accommodation providers. Additionally, my guess is that in the wake of the appalling Grenfell Tower tragedy that many councils will depopulate tower blocks permanently and look to rehouse in smaller blocks. The PRS sector is set for further explosive growth in my view. Mark is a confident fellow but only time will tell if he really has the ambition, drive, determination and the balls necessary to grab this mammoth golden opportunity by the horns, really gear the Company up and turn WJG from a minnow into the undoubted sector champion which it could potentially be. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP
