UK Homebuilder shares

great thread topic!


I hold a few CRST. I think the sector is pricing in gloom. I think a macro picture is as important as each companies prospectus right now. Market seems to be pricing in brexit gloom n doom and many householders are on (relatively speaking) crazy cheap valuations. 


Let;s try and update the thread over the weekend with some of the main players.

Rather depends on whether you are looking at this sector short term or long term.  Ashtead is the biggest property related company on the FTSE100, by market cap excluding CRH, which is actually an Irish based company.  The monthly chart is telling.  If you look at Persimmon the largest house builder, you will see a similar pattern.  Property, particularly anything to do with domestic housing and retail, is a busted flush.  Just look what happened to property after the 1987 Black Monday crash...  All markets move in cycles and property, particularly London housing, is overdue a big crash.  In a trading/investing world where probability is key, I would not be betting on property, except perhaps as a short term trade but even then retrace trades are very tricky and prone to whiplash, much better to trade with the motive direction of the market...  Surely there are better markets and better set ups, unless you want to short property that is.

Yeah but zoom out on that, e.g. TW.  House builders never recovered from the Credit Crunch, despite super inflated house prices.  What will another debt crisis and house price crash do to them...  My guess is the majority of the pain is done and the move up on TW is a 1-5 (direction change) but expect a significant retrace to coincide with economic crashes across the board.

Make hay on this while you can but watch out for reversing resistance levels...

@elle is producing some good homebuilder charts here. I think things got too oversold, esp with  CRST at under £3, and it looks like the board have been taking advantage here. Personally didn't have any free cash to add else CRST would have been one of my top buys. It is still in my pf as a hold though, slightly in the red but the dividend is secure and happy to hold these. Another one to look at is Telford Homes (TEF) which is primarily London based but also come off a long way.

not sure if this is too little, too late but here is a comparison of the major housebuilders' featured above.

they are all still good value but remember its a cyclical sector.

I read a piece in CityAM today that a positive brexit deal will likely see the top end of the housing market rebound.

(quite busy so brief posts right now)

cheers all

    • Indices tumble as China concerns flare The new week has begun with heavy losses, as stock markets retreat on renewed China concerns, relating to the Evergrande property group. Source: Bloomberg  Chris Beauchamp | Chief Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Monday 20 September 2021  FTSE 100 Early losses have taken the FTSE 100 to its lowest level since mid-July, heading rapidly towards the 200-day simple moving average (SMA) at 6893. So far the sellers are firmly in charge, and if the 200-day is lost then 6800, which acted as lows in May and July, is the next area to watch to the downside. Buyers will be looking for a recovery above 7000, but it seems unlikely that this will happen today. Source: ProRealTime DAX Now embracing 40 stocks, the DAX is nonetheless on the back foot like the others, giving back all the ground gained since late July. Below 15,278 the next target is the July low at 15,047. Overall it looks like the downward move is likely to prevail overall, with buyers needing a recovery above 15,700 to provide a sign that a bounce is in play. Source: ProRealTime Dow US markets have begun the week firmly on the back foot, and look set for further losses.     The next level to watch to the downside appears to be 33,960, and intraday rallies are likely to be the cue for further selling unless we see a recovery above 34,707.

    • Gold decline slows and oil prices edge lower So far the outbreak of risk aversion is not providing much of a lift for gold, while oil prices have dropped back from last week’s gains. Source: Bloomberg  Chris Beauchamp | Chief Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Monday 20 September 2021  Gold Gold buyers have stepped in around $1750 over the previous two sessions and so far today, slowing the decline, although that is far from the kind of firm upward momentum that would be needed to suggest a more sustained bounce. Sellers will be looking for a resumption of the move below $1740, while to the upside buyers will hope a rally above $1765 could spark the prospect of a bigger recovery. Source: ProRealTime WTI WTI continues to ignore the selloff in equity markets, dropping back only modestly from the highs of last week and holding above trendline support, helped along by the solidly high stochastic readings. For now buyers will be looking for an additional higher low, somewhere above $68, and sellers will be hoping that a move below $68 can develop in coming sessions. Source: ProRealTime
    • Hi @THT   Yes a lot is going to be happening this week. Central banks expected to steer FX markets this week, with the BoJ, Federal Reserve and BoE all due to meet to decide on interest rate policy. Thanks for your outlook on EURUSD and Gold, very insightful technical analysis breakdown. I have promoted your forum post on our top picks.   Much appreciated for the outlook.   All the best - MongiIG
