Hello Share Millers. How’s this for a good set of half year numbers? Persimmon (PSN), the home builder, has seen revenues soar to £1.8 billion. That’s better by more than 54% year-on-year. House sales also soared by more than half, and there’s been just shy of a 5% increase in house prices to an average of £236,000. But as my brighter colleague Steve Moore often reminds us, that kind of boast doesn’t amount to much if profits haven’t shifted. Well, that’s not the case for Persimmon.
