UK Homebuilder shares

Recommended Posts

Have noticed some of these falling in price this week & could be of some value now - guess it depends on Brexit news ???   PSN was in the news , and it's price has fallen, but there could be a buying opportunity coming up

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.

CRST, maybe their recent statement has put their bad news already out there

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

Hope you took your short term profits on home builders.  Not undervalued after all...  heading for a massive fall, like all stocks really...

It was all in the charts... 😉

    • I cannot see that the global economy will have a fast recovery. I can only see a depression looming unless a vaccine is quickly developed. This is the first time in a long time that the US has been directly affected by a major negative event (9/11 was localised). With the US slowing down, there is no other economy that will be able to create the demand required to get us a fast recovery. China's domestic demand is not large enough and Chinese personal debt was going through the roof even before the virus pandemic. How will the world and the global economy be once this pandemic subsides? I think a very changed society and traditional retail will be one the worst sufferers. Also with all this money printing, is there a risk of hyperinflation in the long term? Well, gonna buy a couple of KGs of gold just as insurance and not for investment per se. Also think property prices will come under the cosh so sitting on cash will enable you to buy distressed properties as getting loans will be hard for many. I am reevaluating my log term investment strategy to take into account the changing environment.
    • Yes...lots of people reacting in strange ways right now......Keep smiling.... How long will it all last? I know it sounds boring....but forget the noise (harder said then done) and watch the charts...the trend is your only friend.... That said....down for april.....sell in may and come back in june!!
