Stock Market Wising Up To Housing Market Slump

Recommended Posts

FTSE stays level despite HBOS losses

Tuesday 8th November 2005: 17:44

The FTSE 100 has ended the day practically unchanged with a small rise of 0.10 points to 5460.90, after mortgage lenders fell at signs of a slowdown in the housing market.

HBOS, the UK's No.4 bank, lost 1.2% to 878p, while Northern Rock, the eighth-largest, declined 0.8% to 810.5p, after the government reported house prices in England and Wales increased at the slowest annual rate in almost a decade.

The fact remains that FTSE companies are returning an average 18% on equity. Given that, if you could borrow a few billion @ 5% would you put it in property or equities?

No but look, property is a one way bet, always go up.

They won't let them fall.
