UK Housebuilding Sector in 1Q 2020: The Promised Land

Red Dwarf, the very British sci-fi comedy franchise, ran for 11 seasons – most recently in 2017; and The Promised Land is a feature-length TV movie – out this year. Yes, the programme is an acquired taste. Strangely, too, many episodes are impacted by a virus or three (physiological, not main-frame). More practical right now, and a veritable Canaan, would be Reverse Flu Virus; and, even better, the Luck Virus. The former infects the individual with a feeling of well-being and happiness - whilst the latter morphs the host into the luckiest person alive and allows him or her to, very easily...

Persimmon – AGM 29 April 2020

Item 3: Remuneration policy   ECGS notes the remarkable effort to restore the confidence in the executive pay after scandal about sky-high LTI vesting in 2017 and 2018. However, our major concern remains and the shareholder distribution will be used as one of three LTI metrics. An unknown part of the LTI will be based on direct shareholder distributions made by the Company (cash and share dividends). This is inherently an aspect under the direct control of the CEO and there is a potential threat that unsustainable shareholder distributions could be made at the expense of longer-term investme...

UK Housebuilding Sector in 4Q 2019: ‘20/20 vision'

For fighter pilots, it is a minimum requirement. But having 20/20 ‘visual acuity’ (correct term) does not necessarily mean you have perfect vision (as convention assumes); instead, it indicates sharpness and clarity of vision at a distance. It is measured by a Snellen Chart, which displays letters of progressively smaller size and whereby 20/20 means that the test subject sees the same line of letters at 20 feet that a person with normal vision sees at 20 feet (or 6 metres; but 6/6 simply didn’t catch on). 20/20 and similar (e.g. 20/200 is legal blindness) are called Snellen fractions, n...

Analyse court terme - PERSIMMON PLC : Le rebond gagne en vigueur.

La tendance est baissière. Le rebond gagne en vigueur. Il est probable que cette reprise s'achève sur la résistance à 2 344,00 p et que les prix baissent à nouveau vers 2 162,50 p. La tendance de fond serait remise en cause en cas de franchissement de 2 503,00 p.

Matthieu DRIOL

Short term view - PERSIMMON PLC : The bounce is gaining strength.

The trend is bearish. The bounce is gaining strength. The bounce might end at the resistance at 2,344.00 p and prices would fall again toward 2,162.50 p. The background trend would be questioned should prices rise above 2,503.00 p.

Short term view - PERSIMMON PLC : The background trend is clearly bearish.

The background trend is clearly bearish. The negative MACD confirms the trend. The rise is a consolidation that will soon bump against the level at 2,344.00 p. The next target is at 2,162.50 p, then 2,039.42 p. Passing 2,503.00 p would question the continuation of the fall.

Analyse court terme - PERSIMMON PLC : La tendance de fond est clairement orientée à la baisse.

La tendance de fond est clairement orientée à la baisse. Le MACD est négatif, il confirme cette tendance. La reprise est une consolidation qui va buter sur 2 344,00 p prochainement. Le prochain objectif est à 2 162,50 p, puis 2 039,42 p. Le franchissement de 2 503,00 p remettrait en cause la suite de la baisse.

Matthieu DRIOL

Analyse moyen terme - PERSIMMON PLC : Les cours baissent.

La tendance est incertaine. Les cours baissent, et il y a une possibilité d'accélération baissière. Une nouvelle tendance baissière tente de démarrer.
