Skanska (Sell, TP: SEK155.00) - Risk in CD and book-to-build

Today Infront consensus for Q1 was released, but given that Skanska only announced four sales for SEK1.4bn in Q1, we see potential downside as we expect lower EBIT in Commercial Development (CD) versus consensus. We are in line on both Construction and Residential Development (RD), while we are concerned about negative book-to-build. We reiterate our SELL and SEK155 target price, as we expect a weakening balance sheet and still-low margins in Construction in 2019. The Q1 results are due at 07:30 CET on 26 April.
