Housebuilder chat is tomorrow, but today I talk about brokers (and specifically Numis)I will talk more about the housebuilders tomorrow after the publication of an update from Barratt Developments (BDEV), whose shares I am not particularly surprised to see are up 11% so far this year but down 25% over the last twelve months. Meanwhile, I see the latest Halifax update is rambling on about that it is “expected that the squeeze on household incomes from the rising cost of living and higher interest rates would lead to a slower housing market, particularly compared to the rapid growth of recent years”. Hardly surprising…and today I want to talk about something different: current trading at the “independent institutional stockbroker and corporate advisor” Numis (NUM).
