Shorting LSL Property Services

Recommended Posts

LSL Property Services announced on 16th March that it would not be merging with Countrywide.  Its balance sheet looks terrible with net assets of £141m including goodwill of £160m and a Current Ratio of less than 1.  Since then it has been affected by the lockdown as well, but somehow today the share price is back to a pre-lockdown level.  I'm short at 177.

Yes up 3.6% today, but 'a rising tide lifts all boats'

In any event imho be careful being short here, the failed merger was a good thing, fundamentals behind the housing market are good, low interest rates are also good for the resi market. Plus they have a large % of income from lettings, their franchisee' s and of course the survey dept. Income will take a hit but it will bounce...

 

Countrywide up 12% today looks a lot better shorting target....they were already struggling before this....

 

Good luck

    • Hi    when I try to buy the tickers SDIV and KBWD the platform does not allow me. This is strange as I have a broker account in France where I can easily buy these products. the MIFID retail legislation is related to CFD and margin, hence the reason must be different, can anybody help me?   Thanks
