Despite Construction Headwinds, innovating Ibstock Has a Chance of Building its Share Price

Hello Share Chewers. Rising interest rates have put the skids under new mortgages. And so the share prices of house builders have faltered. But the industry should not do as badly as you might think, as there’s still a sad shortage of new homes in this country. And here’s a company that services builders and that should continue to do well for its shareholders.

This Bubbly Brick Begetter should Continue to Boom Even if House Prices Bomb

Hello Share Bunnies. This old punter has recommended you look at an ambitious outfit called Ibstock (IBST) before. But I think the case to buy is even stronger now. Ibstock makes bricks and brick-like things. And I can see you marvelling that I should support any company in the construction world. Nobody does that if a recession might be on the way, do they? So what’s going for Ibstock, then?

This Ambitious Outfit Is Taking the Fast Brick Lane

Hello Share Cheerers. A company in the brick trade I've commended before is flying higher than expected. Ibstock (IBST) makes bricks and other building blocks. And you would anticipate success in this continuing bull market for houses and flats.

Tailwinds Outnumber Headwinds for Bouncy Barratt Builders

Hello, Share Twisters. With three offspring who may buy their own homes in the next few years, I keenly appreciate the current shortage of houses. This gap between supply and demand will benefit all builders. But probably more so those companies whose homes are at the more reasonable end of the market. Earlier this month Barratt Developments (BDEV) reported encouraging figures...

Try Researching Galliford Try if You Think the Bank Of England Has it Wrong on House Prices

Hello, Share Swipers. Home builders have performed well for me over recent years. Not because they are necessarily blisteringly good firms, but boosted by the government’s help to buy schemes which have put a lot of dosh their way. However, this family’s investment in Galliford Try (GFRD) has not done well of late...

Have a Look at this Housebuilder. Could it Become The Barratts of Win Win Street?

Hello, Share Tweakers. As someone who regularly sets himself up as an Aunt Sally for Tom’s entertaining bearcasts, I hesitate to commend a home builder to you. But I really think Barratt Developments (BDEV) is worthy of your support. And I base that view on its latest trading report.


Breedon's cash flow love-up

I see the housebuilders got another share price stuffing yesterday on fears that the Help to Buy policy (which I have lampooned on this website recently here) might come to an end. I see the updates today from Barratt Developments (BDEV) and Berkeley Group (BKG) have hardly reignited the shares despite all sorts of 'record results' comments from the former. Well when the average house price is around six times income (and a way higher multiple in London) then value there is not. However...

Leading House Builder Could Lead You to Build a Bigger Profit

Hello, Share Tanglers. The idea of living on a Barratt housing estate used to fill me with dread, but a lot of folk seem to like its houses nowadays, so I humbly suggest you look at the shares.


Persevere with Persimmon, People and You may Perceive your Share Price Build

Hello, Share Twisters. Two months ago I commended the big builder Persimmon (PSN) to your attention. The share price then was about 2220p. As I write, it’s 2636p. But there is further to rise, I fancy.
