cordwainer: Good chance the share price will beat the market with these positive updates.
rivaldo: Excellent transactions update issued today, just after the year end, with lots of successful deals/completions/approvals. With the Capital Markets Day set to spread the word on 5th November, today's update hopefully sets the tone nicely for the trading update on the same day: Https:// " Summary: -- Forward fund of 762 unit mixed PBSA and Build to Rent development in Sheffield -- Sale of 400 student beds across two schemes in Chester -- Agreements for the development of 638 beds across two schemes in Glasgow and Edinburgh -- Forward fund of two Build to Rent schemes, comprising 325 units, in Sutton and Bournemouth -- Forward sale of a 35 apartment residential development in Chester -- Further development of the PBSA pipeline with new sites secured in Edinburgh and Bath and planning obtained for the Group's site in Bristol"
rivaldo: Downing's Monthly Income Fund has today issued its newsletter covering August. WJG is 4.14% of its portfolio, and Downing have this to say: "Watkin Jones, a developer and constructor of multi-occupancy residential property assets, saw its share price tick up during the period on no significant news. In a trading update issued at the end of July, management stated that it continued to see positive momentum across all key areas of the business. The final quarter of the financial year is typically a busy period in terms of forward sale activity, and this is expected to be the case again this year. Given the defensive nature of the business we believe the shares offer good value at these levels."
rivaldo: An excellent development update today, securing even greater visibility going forward and with positive progress on a number of developments in both BTR and student accommodation: Https:// Nice confidence in the forward outlook too: "Richard Simpson, Chief Executive Officer of Watkin Jones, said: "We continue to see positive momentum across all key areas of the business. Our six PBSA schemes for delivery in FY 2019 are on track for completion ahead of the 2019/20 academic year and we continue to see an encouraging pipeline of potential future sites across the UK. The final quarter of the financial year is typically a busy period for the Group in terms of forward sale activity and we expect that to be the case again this year in respect of both the PBSA and Build to Rent pipelines. Our expertise in acquiring sites at attractive prices, securing planning consent and then forward selling the schemes to a wide range of investors not only validates our business model but also demonstrates that, even in a more complex market, our strategy remains extremely resilient. The sectors in which we operate are highly attractive to investors and we continue to make solid progress against our internal targets."
alotto: We didn't see that 250 mark being hit since that target was issued. There is weakness in the share price, I can't see any event happening to get back on track on the short term. Hopefully in a year or two. Let's see.
rivaldo: Yep, looks like the share price is trending upwards again with results due next Tuesday. Quite an impressive non-exec appointment today: Https://
rivaldo: Featured on Citywire this morning as one of four shares that professional investors are buying: Http:// "Watkins Jones (WJG) Who’s trading? Citywire A-rated Henry Dixon and Jack Barrat The trade The managers of the Man GLG Undervalued Assets fund upped their stake in student halls builder Watkins Jones from 2.1% of shares to 5%, worth £26 million at a share price of 206p. How have the shares performed: After listing at 100p a share in 2016 the business rapidly rerated last year to a November high of 245p. However, after a dip the share price is essentially flat over the last 12 months. What does the company say: Watkins Jones cheered a ‘successful’ first half in May, with both earnings and pre-tax profit up almost 12%. It has recently diversified into build-to-rent, signing a £68.5 million deal to construct residential properties in Reading alongside fund management group M&G. It expects to deliver 1,500 homes to let by 2023. What’s the outlook? Jefferies rates the company on a price target of 250p. Management of the business recently passed out of the Watkin Jones family for the first time in its 227-year history, after the company recruited Richard Simpson from Unite, who was reportedly ‘instrumental’ in building its student business. "
quepassa: Before the surprise announcement about MWJ's departure in November , the share price had hit 250p. Given that:- 1. A heavy-hitter new CEO has now been recruited and announced 2. The generalised small-cap sector weakness of the early part of 2018 is fast dissipating 3. An excellent set of results has just been announced by WJG 4. The dividend has just been increased. 5. Several price forecasts are unanimously positive and higher than today's price , personally I see little reason why the WJG share price shouldn't re-test and surpass the November 250p in very short order. GLA. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP
quepassa: Today. Following WJG's results: Equity Development put out a (non-independent) Valuation of 230p per share. Peel Hunt issue Broker Note with a REITERATE BUY recommendation and INCREASE their PRICE TARGET (from 230p) to 240p. Whilst I applaud and concur with their bullishness, personally I think that they have both SIGNIFICANTLY UNDERVALUED the share price potential of WJG. It is clear that WJG are now rightly and wholeheartedly embracing BTR . Combined with an ongoing and surging demand for modernised and incremental student accommodation, this dual-headed strategy will jointly put a rocket under this company and its share price. I personally see the share price touching 300p within 6-12 months and significantly higher (400-500p) within 24-36 months. Well done to WJG on another cracking set of results and thanks for a hefty increase in dividend. The very positive Outlook is music to my ears. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP
jonwig: See Annex 1 - I imagine one of their funds was near to their internal limit. The WJG share price edged up pushing them over. Just my thought!
