Crest Nicholson – another Neil Woodford disaster, but there is good news from The Ghost from Christmas Past

2019-10-31 10:44:35

An RNS this morning of a Strategic and Trading Update from fully-listed Crest Nicholson (CRST) brought bad news for investors: a volatile trading environment has seen full year earnings guidance chopped and although we are promised the 33p dividend is still expected to be met, it is only for the current financial year – and then only if trading conditions do not further deteriorate significantly. But there is good news for Woodford investors - well the former ones, at any rate.


Crest Nicholson warn on profits and predicted

Back in June I discussed the housebuilder Crest Nicholson (CRST), observing that with likely lower margins and a shabby housing market: 'There's still only one conclusion on the housebuilders from a reasonable total return perspective for the next year or two: sell 'em all'. Well back then, the shares were a little above four pounds. As I write now, the share price is only ten pence or so above the three quid level…


Crest Nicholson shows housebuilders are still rollin', rollin', rollin' DOWN

Any hopes of God-given capabilities have come crashing down to earth today though with an update from Crest Nicholson (CRST), shares in which have fallen another 13% to a new 12 month low. So what did it say? Here's the key excerpt from today's update:


Crest Nicholson Should Build its Share Price after Unjustified Pressure

Hello share screamers. I've had mixed encounters with brokers this week. It looks as though TD Waterhouse is handing the reins to Interactive Investor. Not sure I'm happy about that. Then I bought some stock in my ordinary trading account instead of my ISA. It took TD a heck of a long time to sort that out and a helpful chap called Cal worked efficiently and tirelessly on my behalf. Thanks Cal.


Crest Nicholson share price to build higher from 340p

2013-07-08 00:01:38
