Outstanding value share ;
1 NAV Around £2 and we all know NAV will only increase with market upturn.
2 Earning per dividend . Trebled last year .
3 Sales . All achieved ABOVE market valuation (ie NAV ( for the more simple of us)).
4 New lettings / Occupancy Up 2% and still a lot more to come (84% Is not so great ,ie below par )
5 Borrowings/ LTV .Reduced quite a lot in six months .Greater occupancy will speed this even faster .If it can be achieved.
At 30p per share well undervalue.
If occupancy levels can be upped to the standard level and the loan sharks kept on board ,at reasonable rates .One sees no reason why £1 per share will be upon us soon.
Then again , I have a particular fondness for our present BOD , on this one .Some of the good fellows and well worthy of praise .Thus far .
Even broken up ( which I was anticipating , this will earn you a decent payback ).
