  1. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-36086012 " Listening to details of when the M62 motorway is likely to be upgraded - or how the high-speed railway HS2 is progressing - may not be your idea of a scintillating weekend. But this Saturday and Sunday 500 Chinese investors will be lapping up such details in two of Hong Kong's s*****iest hotels, along with their dim sum. No longer will they be staring at artist impressions of Canary Wharf or Battersea. Instead, lured by George Osborne's promotion of the "Northern Powerhouse", Chinese investors are packing their bags and heading up the M6. "

  3. "Monetary trends, meanwhile, have weakened further in early 2018, with G7 plus E7 six-month real narrow money growth falling to a nine-year low in February. Real broad money has also continued to decelerate. The emerging economic slowdown, therefore, could extend into late 2018, allowing for the usual lead." http://moneymovesmarkets.com/journal/2018/4/10/a-monetarist-perspective-on-current-equity-markets.html Monetary trends looking similar to 2007/8 for the moment. There is a clear trend. It will be interesting to see if it continues or reverses in coming months. It looks lik

  6. Excellent article in the Guardian on the insanity of the London's "luxury" apartment development. https://www.theguardian.com/business/2017/apr/04/the-property-billboards-that-reveal-the-truth-about-britains-luxury-housing-market We are all now familiar with the stories of apartment blocks being thrown up to sell to middle and far eastern investors and this analysis really digs through the issues. I think it is important to recognise that these are not properties that were being built to meet residential demand and that foreign investors just happen to be buying them, but rather

  9. Microsoft has just announced it is paying 26 Billion USD in cash for professional social network LinkedIn. In 2015 LinkedIn generated 2.99 billion U.S. dollars in revenue with a user base of 440 million users. Shares jumped $60 on the news. In 2015 Net Income was 166 million USD giving a PE of 157 although I understand that if you are not making a stonking loss in the dot.com world you are doing something wrong. http://www.marketwatch.com/investing/stock/lnkd/financials I'm calling top on this asset bubble although over at The Fool they claim it is more profitable than Facebook. http://www.
  10. Hi, one conundrum for you guys. London HAS or HAS NOT a property bubble ?. After reading articles from both sides for the last 2 years in the London property market, here two examples: Business Insider: These charts show how London's property bubble may burst at any moment http://www.businessinsider.com.au/hsbc-london-house-price-and-earnings-charts-2015-12 Absolutely the opposite ...

  11. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-36181318 'Bank of mum and dad' lends £5bn a year in UK, says L&G Lending from parents to help their children get on the UK property ladder will amount to £5bn in 2016, according to data from Legal & General (L&G). L&G says it means the so-called Bank of Mum and Dad will help to finance 25% of all UK mortgage transactions this year - at an average amount of £17,500. If this lending prowess was combined into a formal business, it would be a top 10 UK mortgage lender, adds L&G. But it warns this method of lending is coming under increasi

  13. I don't know how it is in your areas, but every few weeks I click on Rightmove sold house prices for my area (E8, E9 and E5), and bar a few sales am not really seeing much actually appearing near the crazy asking prices published? Of course there is a delay of a few months, but still.... For example, note this house with north facing garden for £1.5million: http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-32141598.html Yet the highest sale I can find for the street is £1,015,000. http://www.rightmove.co.uk/house-prices/detail.html?country=england&locationIdentifier=OUTCODE%5E762&
  14. And, if so, what's next? I'm seeing a lot less reporting of frenzied sealed bids and a lot more of this sort of thing: http://www.propertyindustryeye.com/calling-top-market-say-london-agents/ Is this what people are seeing on the ground? If not, which areas still are showing signs of panic?
  15. Today's quotes from the bank on Sky ("We could limit amounts of certain types of mortgages that banks could undertake, we could provide advice. The chancellor has asked us if we would provide advice on changing the terms of Help to Buy.") and the government on the BBC ("I think if he says that we need to pare back on some of the government schemes like Help to Buy, then I think we should do so.") suggest conscious signalling that some kind of intervention is afoot . If scaling back support for the market is announced, I see two things as inevitable: (1) rapid retreat by the smart money as the

  17. Using the publicly available land registry data set imported into a database, I've written a query to extract the top flippers nationwide from the start of 2013 to the end of the current data range (Feb 2014). That is, repeat sales since Jan 2013 that have made a profit, ranked by profit. The overall numbers are 4086 repeat sales made a profit, 467 made a loss, 208 even.
  18. Two of our favourite pundits (Boulger and Bien) discussing MMR this lunchtime (http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b041469n) Can't help wondering if Melanie forgot her lines when Paul Lewis turned the topic to house prices (at 10 mins 20 sec). Went something like this: PL: House prices: Is there a bubble as we've heard this week? MB: We- well I'm not convinced ... I mean the market is crazy in places like London... PL: That sounds like a bubble to me MB: Well, but ... b ... it's ... they're very abnormal ... um ... the ... er ... situation. You've got very few transactions which are pushing
