Tom Winnifrith Bearcast: ShareSoc to ask if the Pope is a Catholic, Chatting to Union Jack's Bramhill & another old geezer
Fulham Shore – surely it should be for the reader to decide if a standard update is of ‘particular relevance’!
Back in May I concluded that I would 'continue to steer clear of the FTSE-100 commercial property behemoths'. That article particularly referenced Land Securities (LAND) and in the five plus months since then - despite global capital markets generally being risk-on during this period - shares in this particular commercial property play have not recovered one iota (and despite a share price that has declined by two-thirds over the last five years).

To accompany my note yesterday on British Land (BLND) I now revisit Land Securities (LAND) which I last wrote on bullishly in April 2014, when the shares were 1063p. Like British Land they got into new price territory this week 1208p bit have since come back within the uptrend to 1200p.
Reading that an icon of a modern City of London landscape, Lord Foster’s “the Gherkin” has been called in the administrators and that Canary Wharf’s emblematic HSBC HQ building is up for sale, I thought it wise not to continue take the UK property sector for granted assuming it is doing well. To help me in this analysis, I revisit Land Securities (LAND) below.
News of a buoyant office letting market in the City as well as London generally prompts me to re-examine the valuation of the big property development company that is most commonly associated with property activity in London and the South East, Land Securities (LAND).
