Barratt Developments 'the cheapest housebuilder' for Credit Suisse - Digitallook.com

BDEV

Since 2009, Barratt's EBIT margin and return on equity have lagged the sector by an average 470 and 480 basis points, respectively. CS, which hiked its target price to 702p from 578p, forecasts an 110-basis-point increase in margins in coming year warrant earnings per share forecasts for the 2018 and 2019 financial years being lifted by 4% and 3%. On that basis the stock is pricing in a RoE of 14.5%, significantly below what both the bank and consensus expects Barratt to deliver over the next three years, with its margin initiatives predicted to drive a re-rating up towards the sector average. To address this, in the first half of the year the FTSE 100 group announced a series of four initiatives specifically aimed at driving margin improvement, which the Swiss bank expects to drive an increase in RoE in the 2017-20 financial year and sees "scope for multiple re-rating as the group delivers these heightened returns".
