Cuey,

Where's the land "suddenly" coming from for your bricks and pipes to be used on?

I don't think supply of land is the immediate concern ....on a personal note recently had yet another letter drop on my doorstep enquiring as to whether I would be prepared to sell (and not from an estate agent ) ...other's look to "past cycles"...current conditions? ....not in my lifetime

Builders have been acquiring and stockpiling it for 8 years. Bought at 'sale' prices. Some are now using it as a second revenue stream, selling plots to other builders.
Take a look at Inlands books.

There was a very comprehensive article about house-builders in Investors Chronicle dated 23/09/2016.

It showed the relative risk of downturn v. future gains of a number of house-builders, and various metrics for each one, from the basic P/E ratio to many much more complex ones. Also the NAV calculations for each builder on the list over the last few years. Overall, it seemed to conclude that the biggest influence on profitability and share prices was the rising sale price of houses, and the biggest downside was falling house prices followed by increased build costs.

All as you might expect, but clearly laid out. Well worth a read IMHO.

Gleeson results Monday.... And Wolsley results Tuesday.
SP reaction won't tell us a lot. But look at the numbers.

I simplify to make my point.

Those big, out of town, out of favour hyper/supermarkets/parking spaces that still own their property, they could have some pretty valuable land if it could be passed for housing....

I recall, back in the day, Ken M liked to own his own properties before the smart guys appeared and said oh no, Opco and Propco is the future and so Propco gets spun off.

Sainsburys did the same, it seemed such a clever thing to do at the time.... what could go wrong, the SP is supported by our P/E not our boring tangible assets.

Which ones in particular ?

The Wolseley UK business would be my suggestion.

Gleesons profits should be outstanding. Northern focused targeting first and second time buyers. Great long term hold.

Wolseley however, 11mil mkt cap (massive co) will tell us if the construction programmes are rising or falling. Not a company I hold for various reasons but it's numbers will tell us a lot more than some of these fingers in the air.

Not quite got the 'spends' I thought I had (Wolseley) I find the reaction (over) to what are essentially good results this morning ...well....buying opportunity for 'real' investors..

As regards Gleeson ..watch Mills'y....... come to think of it when you 'do' look at the content of BOTH his funds and the 'protection' they afford (How many more times)...well ....work it out....

Cuey,

Isn't it awful the way these builders, like the miners, bounce around? Bloody shameful.

There has to be some way of turning a fast buck from such gyrations. Isn't there?

And by the way happy birthday, belated, to Mrs srg 725. Hope you have as much fun in your sixties as we had in ours. Take care of your knees though.
