Based on Barratt Developments PLC's (LON:BDEV) earnings update in December 2018, the consensus outlook from analysts...
London's main bourse inched higher on Wednesday, helped by better than expected numbers from housebuilder Berkeley and a surge in Clydesdale and Yorkshire Banking Group after it promised more savings from its buyout of Virgin Money. The FTSE 100 index, sharply higher on Tuesday along with other European markets on the back of a strong policy speech from European Central Bank chief Mario Draghi, edged 0.05% higher by 0707 GMT.
Shares in British builder Berkeley Group Plc got a boost on Wednesday when annual profit fell less than forecast, reinforcing confidence in its ability to ride out a sluggish housing market. The company, which operates primarily in the cities of London and Birmingham and southern England, said pretax profit fell 20.7% to 775 million pounds ($972.63 million) in the year ended April 30. While house prices have been rising across the country, prices in London have fallen according to various indicators, hit by unaffordable levels for many buyers, tax changes and uncertainty over the Brexit process.
Buy-to-let lending is in recovery, but Royston Wild asks: wouldn't you be better off buying this FTSE 100 (INDEXFTSE: UKX) dividend hero?
Harvey Jones says there’s still money to be made in bricks & mortar. Take this FTSE 100 (INDEXFTSE: MCX) stock for instance.
Neil Woodford has sold 97 million pounds ($123 million) of shares over the past 10 days to boost liquidity in his suspended equity income fund, a Woodford spokesman said on Thursday. Market participants have been expecting a wave of forced selling by Woodford, with some hedge funds taking out short positions against his investments. "Since suspension, Woodford has sold 97.1 million pounds of stock as he continues to reposition the Woodford Equity Income Fund portfolio," a Woodford spokesman said by email.

Royston Wild runs the rule over two FTSE 100 (INDEXFTSE: UKX) income heroes and their share price prospects for June.
The main index, whose companies earn more than two-thirds of their profit from abroad, ended 0.1% higher, while the more domestically-focused FTSE 250 slipped 0.7%. A slump in sterling lifted internationally-exposed companies GlaxoSmithKline, Unilever and AstraZeneca, the biggest boosts to the FTSE 100. Stocks most sensitive to the any increased risk of a hard Brexit stumbled after multiple media reported rumours May's ministers could oust her in a row over her latest deal to exit the European Union.
Could Barratt Developments PLC (LON:BDEV) be an attractive dividend share to own for the long haul? Investors are...
The midcaps gave up 1.3 percent, lagging the main index, whose losses were capped due to gains across so-called defensive stocks, which are deemed safer bets at times of economic troubles. U.S. President Donald Trump late on Wednesday accused China of breaking the deal they had reached in trade talks, while a rise in U.S. tariffs is set to be triggered on Friday. The U.S. is set to up the ante ... and that has prompted dealers to cut and run," CMC Markets analyst David Madden said.
Royston Wild explains why this FTSE 100 (INDEXFTSE: UKX) income share is a compelling pick for those looking to get richer.
Chief Executive Officer David Thomas said that a modestly better outlook for the year translated to an improvement of 1-3 percent on Britain's biggest housebuilder's previous profit estimate. Barratt's upbeat view was in contrast to rivals Persimmon and Taylor Wimpey. The nation's second-largest housebuilder Persimmon had reported a drop in orders so far this year, while third-largest Taylor Wimpey had warned on margins and flagged cost pressures.

Royston Wild discusses a low-cost FTSE 100 (INDEXFTSE: UKX) dividend darling that he thinks is worthy of serious attention.
The FTSE 100 and the FTSE 250 lost 0.6 percent each. Sainsbury's tumbled 4.7 percent to a near three-year low after the supermarket chain scrapped its proposed 7.3 billion pound takeover of Walmart-owned Asda after the deal was blocked by Britain's competition regulator. "The failure of securing a merger with Asda leaves the group in a bit of a vacuum, with leadership and strategic uncertainties the byproduct of the CMA's rebuttal," Jefferies analysts said.
It said costs had risen more than expected early this year due to surprisingly high demand for materials amid a buildup of buffer stocks in the industry on political uncertainty related partly to Britain's decision to leave the European Union. Taylor Wimpey now expects building costs to rise about 5 percent in 2019 versus a previous 3-4 percent forecast. Taylor Wimpey's shares fell 7.6 percent to 177.7 pence, pushing them to the bottom of London's blue chip index and dragging down rivals Persimmon Plc, Barratt Development Plc and Berkeley.
