Assessing Value

Barratt Developments announced a trading update today, following on from reports in the past week from its industry peers Bovis and Persimmon, which has been carefully scrutinised for any indication of how potential buyers are responding to the prospect of Brexit. Following on from the previous blog entitled ‘Property: an Investment or Speculation’, and in response to requests from readers, this article seeks to answer the question of “Where in the sector does best value reside?” (if you’ll excuse the pun). The writer uses a spread sheet to monitor valuation and various inputs to that process which, incidentally, is far from complete but might be of interest to prospective investors.

Investor Rights in ISA's

Over the past two years, I had several lengthy discussions with a key official at the Department of Business Innovations & Skills (BIS), whose remit was to prepare for the dematerialisation of shareholdings (ie the abolition of share certificates).  Her remit was actually much wider than that and included a number of related matters.  One interesting fact which emerged in the course of our discussions – but only after she had done some research – is that there is a set of Parliamentary Regulations that require ISA providers to treat investors rather better than some of them do.
