Citywire: Berenberg: Watkin Jones on the way to 400p Construction and development company Watkin Jones (WJG) is a top pick for Berenberg as the broker forecasts a huge step-up in earnings growth. Analyst Kieran Lee retained his ‘buy’ recommendation and target price of 280p but said the group was on the ‘pathway to a 400p price target’. The shares closed up 4%, or 9.5p, at 249p on Monday. Lee said there were three areas where Watkin Jones could outperform over the medium term. ‘If it does so, it could increase earnings per share by 34% versus our base-case assumptions, improving liquidity in the shares, and justify a 400p valuation,’ he said. Those three areas are the expansion of the company’s development pipeline in build-to-rent, building out the affordable housing business into another core segment, and continued margin outperformance versus management guidance. ‘With earnings forecast to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 15.9% to financial year 2023, the shares trading at a current-year 2021 price-to-earnings [ratio] of 14.5x and yielding 3.5%, Watkin Jones remains a top pick in the sector,’ said Lee.

Gulston was only recommending WJG as an AIM income share with a secure future dividend. IMO the share price is likely to reach 280p again in the near future, that 16% gain will pale into insignificance the 3.1% yield at the moment.

Mr Gulston also pointed to property developer Watkin Jones, whose shares yield 3.1pc, arguing that the company’s ability to accurately forecast turnover meant its future dividends looked secure. “Watkin Jones has three to four years of sales visibility once the funding for a project is secured,” he said.

Closed above 240p again. At last ready to push higher perhaps.

Coausentum - really valid point it’s a good question. The question is also to what degree WJ have been able to pass those costs on to institutional buyers. I am still curious as to why the astute Monaco based OUTGOING chairman has spent £200k of his money into WJ. He is not likely to be a mug and knows something we don’t. The share price seems to have hit a floor of 238p and is breaking above the 240p level. All other things being equal potential for this to £2.80

From the DT: "Prices for construction materials jumped 4.5pc in July compared to the previous month and were up 20pc year-on-year, according to the business department. The construction materials price index is at the highest point since comparable records began in 1996." How much will this hit WJG profit? Are greatly increased material costs acknowledged in the share price yet?

IMO once we break through the resistance level of 240 it should then form a support level as we head for 280, which we previously hit 18 months ago.

Jeff - nothaving a go at you but thats what the planners say and they place resytrictions on what goes where. Invariably most planners dont live in the locality and are not impacted by the decisions. I recommned Nicolas Taleb - he of Black Swan event - its about having skin in the game: hxxps://www.pdfread.net/ebook/skin-in-the-game-nassim-nicholas-taleb/. Unfortunately a lot of our lords, masters and a voiciferous minority dont have any. Keep safe and seems 240 was not resistance!

sp, We don't need a car for getting round London, but we do need a car and, as we live in London, it has to be here! We're non-flyers but, as travellers, we either take the train or drive up to c.800m (ski-ing and continental travel). Unlike Bezos and Branson, we are not 'space tourists' either, so I don't have much problem with our 'carbon footprint'. You have an opinion, and I'm happy to listen to you, but imposing a set of ideas on others - as the authorities currently seem inclined to do - does not take account of individual circumstances. I raised the issue of electric cars/heat pumps because I think the powers-that-be are going in totally the wrong direction and at huge expense to the taxpayer. At the end of the day it's all grandstanding anyway as, if UK simply closed down and we moved back into caves, the global environmental impact would be.....zero.

Jeff - London is so different and I dont see why you need a set of wheels for getting round that city. Not many fat Londoners as lots walk / public transport. I understand on the national travel - but having a car - well I think its down to convenience as your average car sits there 23 hrs a day depreciating and doing sweet FA! Cord - yes I agree and car clubs etc should have their own space - get caught in it - we fing you a grand as some Arab will park his maserati in there - or base it on income :-) Any way back to WJG - is that 240 a line of resistance?

^ There should at least be parking provision for daily / hourly rental cars (e.g. 'Zip' cars), pool cars etc ?

#2349/2350, I'm afraid it's all part of the social engineering experiment going on everywhere. In our West London borough, not only are all new developments built without parking space, but there is also a planning restriction on the owners of the new flats that they will not even be allowed a parking permit to park on the street! In other words, cars forbidden. The estate agent showing me a new flat for my daughter gave the same response as swiss paul, but it's just not so. Sure, I cycle/Uber mostly around London but there are times when only a car will do. Of course, parking is just the tip of the iceberg. The Government dictated rush to electric cars and heat pumps regardless of practicality and other real-world solutions is indicative of the way things are going. Of course, in the light of 'Year 2000', Smart meters, the HMRC and NHS computerisation debacles etc, there's no question that they could be wrong......is there?

Off the Lemon Fool: Empiric Student Property (ESP) H1(June) rev down 24%. Occupancy 65% (84%). Divs to resume in Q4 with 2.5p then 1.5p min PA with a view to increasing this as occupancy levels normalise. "Almost all universities are now planning a blended approach to learning, with a mix of face to face teaching and online lectures. In other words, they expect students to attend in person for AY 21/22." [SP=100 Cap=603m] Thanks Mr C
