Uk Housebuilders Share Price Rise

Recommended Posts

Any views on what these increases mean for the new build sector?

After watching this sector following Dr Bubbs predictions, i was wondering why share prices in UK housebuilders have lept ahead in recent days... especially following recent announcements of potential problems sending shares down in the equivalent US sector, which I thought may have spooked UK investors.

I wonder if the CEO of Persimmon is looking to consolidate before a market slowdown?

I'm not quite sure what to make of it.....there seems to be m+a mania in the stockmarket at the moment,but sometimes these kind of bets just don't pay off.

cast your mind back to pre 2000 when the tech boom was going strong and companies were being bought out all over the place....only for the downturn to hit hard with job losses in tow a year later.

think marconi!!!.

logic would tell you that a company would buy out another one if the valuation was cheap and there were opportunities to cut overall cost,increase market share,enter a new niche on the cheap.

sadly some businesses can't get the timing right either.

personally I think they are doing it to cut overall costs and consolidate as much as they can during the downturn...but I think they might have been better served reducing their unsold stock and gettingrid of the contractors now,with a view to getting the land bank and aqcuisitions later for cheaper.

Buying other firm is also a good way to hide problems.
