Builders' Shares Push Ftse To 14 Year High

Recommended Posts

Weren't there some recent articles saying that the fall in builders' shares meant a crash was imminent?

A rally in housebuilding shares briefly pushed the FTSE 100 to its highest level in 14 years.

The FTSE 100 index touched 6,877.39 at one point - its highest level since January 2000 - before falling back to 6,859.75, up 8 points on the day.

Shares in housebuilders led the way, following upbeat comments from FTSE 250 firm Taylor Wimpey.

Its shares rose 7.2% after saying it was confident it would meet or exceed financial targets by the end of 2015.

This lifted rival housebuilders in the FTSE 100, with Barratt Developments up 2.9% and Persimmon 2.2% higher.

Is anyone surprised when the First Time Buyer's Summit (thanks Grant Shapps/Michael Green) consisted of builders, developers, estate agents, financiers and not a single first-time buyer?

It was obvious which way it was going to go.

Ftse 100 hasn't done anything for 15 mnths but as long as Yellen and Kuroda keep printing like maniacs there's always the risk of an upside breakout.
