Segro (SGRO) is a property company that began in the roaring twenties as Slough Estates. It develops and invests in property located in the UK and Europe focusing on business space at the edge of town.

Dividend Munchers May Want to Consider a Punt as NewRiver Rises to Meet a Shopping Flood

Hello, Share Takers. A company with the initials REIT after its name can be good news for shareholders. That’s because such firms have an obligation to pay out much of profit by way of dividends. REIT stands for Real Estate Investment Trust, in other words an outfit that owns, operates or finances income-generating property. Modelled after mutual funds, REITS offer income for investors but have a bigger task offering asset appreciation.

I should be on the Latest Rich List - Except (Like You Probably) I've Always Lacked the Necessary Nerve.

So a Ukranian-born oil and media bloke tops the Times rich list with £23 billion. It makes that £200 quid you made on Avacta (AVCT) look a bit anaemic doesn’t it? Second was and third were property brothers David and Simon Reuben .Their assets grew byt £5.46bn to £21.46 billion .

What a strange company is Pendragon!

I have never written before about Pendragon (PDG), which describes itself as a company which apparently is ‘revolutionising the automotive industry with its vision to transform automotive retail through digital innovation and operational excellence’. Suffice to say it has not talked about a bunch of difficult times over recent years, which took the shares down from a 25p plus share price in 2018 and early 2019 to just a 5p share price a few months into last year. So what should we be thinking now at today’s 18p share price and nearly £260 million market cap?

Shares Versus Property? Why I'm Beginning to Prefer Bricks and Mortar

Hello, Share Swappers. This family is thinking of moving house. A big choice must be made whether to wait until we sell our present abode while keeping our shares.  Or to sell some shares to buy our new house, thus being able to afford two dwellings for the time being. It all depends on whether share prices will rise faster than house prices. And I rather think it’s safer to put more into property these days.

Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: sticking it hard on two counts to a company I own

Mahmud celebrates the pain I am suffering and is so happy that he has helped us to get to 49% of the £48,000 we NEED to ensure Woodlarks SURVIVES. I only ask each of you for a tenner but how about every bearcast listener donates that TODAY so we hit target. Please give HERE. Then I look at my friend Jonathan Price's article about why I am wrong on property plays. Euro loon Jonathan is a great chap though utterly misguided on almost every issue as only an elitist London millionaire can be and I clarify matters. Then onto Curzon Energy (CZN): I am a long and wrong shareholder and explain why I think the shares are too high and why a statement is needed ASAP. A few words follow on SSP Group (SSPG) and today's dividend placing madness.

Take a Peek at a Growing Firm that Handles the Wealthy's Money

Hello, Share Jumpers. An aunt of mine allows a financial adviser to make share buying decisions for her through an umbrella wealth management firm. This may seem like a bit of a cop out, but the elderly can lose track of how their shares perform. So I keep an eye on the shares in her bag and have been happy with the firm’s performance so far...

My Dividend Muncher’s List – time for an update

It is a while since I updated on my small portfolio of high-yielders from the FTSE100. The idea of the portfolio – perhaps somewhat contrary to expectations – is that I am bearish, but am struggling to find somewhere to park my cash. Bond yields are low and prices high, but interest rates are rising so my simple mind sees capital losses there. You still can’t get any meaningful interest at the bank and property prices look set to (at best) stall. And to cap it all, I am nervous that the market might sell off. So I am investing here as a bear.

Should We Dash for Cash Or Keep Hunting Big Rewards Even as the Storm Clouds Gather.

Hello, Share Spinners. Another weekend is upon us which gives a chance to throw in a few general and unrelated thoughts about the perils and the opportunities of a very unstable share market at the moment. The main preoccupation of most of us, I suspect, is whether we should turn our shares into cash. This is not the time to turn everything into mazuma, I would suggest. But it might be wise to convert a third of our portfolio into the hard stuff.

Where the US leads we will follow - let's start with a property crash and retail-aggedon

I keep saying this till I am blue in the face but most asset classes are global. The idea, therefore that property prices can crash in New York and San Francisco but just keeo melting upwards in other global cities like London is just nonsense.

A British Bulldog Called Sirius Which Should Benefit from Brexit

Hello Share Slicers. If you've visited Germany in the last few years, as I have, you’ll be impressed by the prosperity which swirls around the place. People driving posh cars, while smartly dressed (compared to Blighty anyway where the standard is admittedly exceptionally low). There is a fully-listed British property company which has a load of business parks in Germany - including the prosperous cities of Berlin, Frankfurt and Munich. It is doing them up to attract bigger rents.

Foxtons Had a Brush with Brexit - But It May Get Over It

Hello Share Chippers. An estate agent with a big interest in London is Foxtons (FOXT). But how could anyone suggest this share is worth a look after Brexit? Surely properties in the Smoke will be in the firing line now that we are to leave the EU?

Foxtons drifts lower, blames Brexit referendum for market weakness

Foxtons (FOXT) shares reached an all-time low since their 2013 flotation in the wake of the EU referendum, and despite recovering from that nadir, sentiment remains weak. The shares are changing hands today at 113p, 8% lower on the day, in the aftermath of their latest interim results.

Savills offers good long term value and growth prospects

Estate agents and housebuilders plummeted after Britain voted to leave the EU, as the chances of a slump in the property market were seen by some as having increased as a result of that outcome. I have no doubt that some companies in these sectors will be badly hit, especially those whose business is focussed around higher end properties in London, such as Foxtons, but for others I see the recent drops in share price as presenting a buying opportunity, especially when taking a longer term view.

Sutton Harbour Holdings - An Easter Egg of an Investment

Buy New River Retail

Hello Share Crashers. I don’t want to worry Brexit fans too much, but did you know that my bookie is offered me 4 to 1on Brits voting us out of Europe? And the odds for staying in - 6 to 1 on. If we come out, property prices may fall as rich Europeans, and possibly the rest of the world demure from buying stuff over here. As the bookies think we will be staying in - often a better guide than opinion polls - it seems to me that we might look for property comp[anies to invest in.

Regus Shows the Way to the Office of the Future - Today

Hello Share Punchers. Most of us have our larger holdings in Footsie giants. But you may want to follow my general policy of also having a bunch of lesser known companies in your bag. In my humble experience, it’s sometimes here where the fastest profit-gaining stocks are more likely to be found. Let’s have a look then at a firm which may have escaped your radar so far. It’s called Regus (RGU)  And actually, it’s not a small company at all, having a market cap of £2.72 billion. However, I’ve not featured it much before. But it is a nifty operator and perhaps I ought to have done.
