The predictable breakout as the xd period ends (28/02)is underway. I'd expect 220p + leading up to and crossing that threshold easily, and have opened a large T+20 trade accordingly. Not my usual style but funds are tied up at present and gift horses here and all that.......

Short term, gradual recovery back above 220p at least hopefully.

WJG have submitted plans for a new apartment block in Chester - to be completed by 2020: Https://www.insidermedia.com/insider/northwest/plans-in-for-chester-apartments "Plans in for Chester apartments 15 Feb 2018 Plans to build a Chester apartment block on the site of a former motor parts factory and car rental office have been submitted. Watkin Jones is behind the proposals through Trafford Street Chester Ltd. The site is located on Trafford Street and nearby St Anne Street, and sits on brownfield land. It is currently occupied by two vacant units which were occupied by Partco and Hertz. The application is to erect a part-four and part-five-storey complex comprising 35 high quality apartments; 16 one-bed and 19 two-bed. It would also include 44 cycle spaces and 39 car parking spaces. A planning statement submitted by Watkin Jones notes that the scheme would have a "positive impact" on the city, providing the opportunity to "comprehensively redevelop an important, underutilised brownfield site". "This proposal is immediately deliverable," it added."There is a commitment by the Watkin Jones Group for delivering this development to enable completion by 2020."

@ hybrasil - always a question worth asking! If it were a housebuilder, then ptb would be excessive, yes. But insofar as it's a facilitator of pre-ordered goods (student accomodation buildings) with little development risk its per is quite reasonable. Worth remembering that students is a growing property sector, particularly overseas ones with money! No barriers whatsoever to entry? If you're an institution wanting to invest in new-build student accommodation, would you approach a trusted operator with wide subcontracting contacts, or Corrie's Pat Phelan? They are also building PRS flats, etc. on their own balance sheet. Yes, that carries risk (and one I'm concerned about) but at present it's a relatively small part of the business.

A 14.4 operating margin might suggest that there's more to it than picking up a trowel and laying bricks..... GLA

Is this not massively over valued? No barriers whatsoever to entry thereore in my book its worth asset value only - which is 1/3rd of todays price.

Glaw2. Thanks as well. Just my gut feeling, but I suspect the share price has fallen as far as they will at this point. The mkt has factored in Mark's departure and the business model is robust. As Shake44 indicates, there still remians a wide and deep spread of expertise in cos like this. I may look to top up. Just my view so dyor

I feel sure the city investors would be reassured if Mark stayed as NED. I don't buy that alpha male stuff from my boardroom Experience. Good businesses have much more collegiate balanced boards these days. Mark has not only a wealth of experience but also invaluable contacts. Neither should be lost to the business. And if he does become more detached he will be more unlikely to sell off the family's 30% stake. I think it is a mistake not to announce him as NED now. Shares won't move forward until they do.

Glaws. Thanks very much for that. (3) is reassuring, I think that's a pretty sound explanation of the BTR model which allays some doubts on my part. CEO becoming NED - not necessarily a good thing apart from a transitional arrangement. CEOs have big egos and primate communities have room for just one alpha male. PLC top-tier management a primate community? You bet!

A very brief AGM report below; there were 4 private investors - the meeting ran to 75 mins with the majority of the time on shareholder questions. Senior management (below board level) from WJG also attended. 1. Very confident of the business going forward; BTR will be the growth engine – see big opportunities here with a “wall of money” waiting to come in. 2. BTR specification being honed; got the impression that the Leeds development was very much a proof of concept. 3. Questioned on the lack of forward sales on BTR and thus the carrying of the development risk they were emphatic that this is a short term event and once they are satisfied that they have got the right BTR model will move to forward selling in the same way that they do on the student side. Thought it would be 12-18 months to get to this position. 4. CEO resignation – due to difficulties in personal life. Stressed that it was definitively not the case of getting out due to impending problems – quite the reverse in fact in terms of strength of the business. City reaction was surprise, disappointment but acceptance given the business was strong. Indeed some institutions have increased holdings in the light of recent share price weakness. 5. Future role for Mark Watkins-Jones – would like him to become a NED (and he has indicated he is willing); but have held off on the appointment as they want the CEO to have an input into that decision. If he were to be appointed an additional NED would also be added as counter balance. If you have any further questions message me.

They didn't issue anything at last year's AGM apart from a summary re-reading of the Annual Report. If anything untoward had emerged this morning the market would have reacted.

Been watching the chart for a few days, I think it needs to close at 180p to look healthy. Anything briefly below this is extremely good value.

Sell then if you're worried. You have to look beyond daily wider market moves with this.
