As a happy user of iii for many years, I've noticed another worrying glitch.

No replies to my messages.

...though must say IWeb looks pretty good on the face of it! £5/trade certainly represents value...

Today, even worse happened for me with iWeb when I tried to increase my holding in RGL. iWeb said "We no longer allow investment in this stock". Perhaps they haven't written a KID document?

Previously an advocate for iweb's low prices, I now find myself a grumbling malcontent. Halifax /iweb seem to have put the cosh on the purchase of a wide range of investment trusts.
In my own case I attempted to B&B Picton Property Income (PCTN) prior to the company's proposed conversion to a REIT, by selling from my iweb share dealing account and buying in my ISA, only to become stranded in cash. Now resolved with another platform, but no response from iweb to my enquiry to have PCTN reinstated.

On Friday 18th May I was able to buy some more RGL at iWeb again, with no obvious reason for the change. Perhaps some people are poking iWeb with an IT stick and they realise that they want the trades.

Price down from 100p to 95p since this research report. Anyone got any idea what the reason is?

I noticed there has been a downgrading of property related stocks (from HL's summary of Broker Tips 6th June):
(Sharecast News) - The retail squeeze is starting to show on property values, said Credit Suisse as it reappraised real estate investment trusts Hammerson, British Land and Shaftesbury.

Hammerson and British Land were downgraded by the Swiss bank to 'underperform' from 'neutral' ratings, while Shaftesbury's focus on London's West End saw it upgraded with the reverse rating change and its price target lifted to 1,015p from 860p.

I can't say I am surprised. I have only a small holding in British Land and a larger one in Segro, but as I said earlier today, B Land has sold a building in central London is using part of the proceeds to buy back its own shares for cancellation. Shrinking the Company. And B Land's share price is drifting back.

See my post on this thread of 17 February.

RGL back to the level of that 3m trade @ 94.5p some 3weeks ago, shortly after going XD 1.85p.

Nothing really untoward, just a drift as one or more of the institutional investors who entered at 100p adjust their books.

Should see some stability with the next set of numbers and dividend statement; especially as the yield is now at a more
than generous 8.5%! Happy to hold, indeed finding it increasingly difficult not to add...

Incidentally Dod101 - rather than drifting BLND is actually trading at a 2-yr high and 15% above its lows!

Sorry I got that on B Land wrong. I see it has come back quite strongly in the last three months or so although still somewhat below its peak of two years ago at around £7.38. My only excuse is that I am not really very interested in it these days. Thanks for that.

Maybe they are expecting some not-to-be-missed acquisition bargains in several months time, and want to have a war-chest to hand. Or maybe they are expecting to have an unusually large number of voids in several months time and want to have enough cash in the bank to ride through.

Can't think why that might be ......

(or maybe there is a more innocent explanation)

See p40 of the prospectus:

http://www.regionalreit.com/~/media/fil ... onds-a.pdf

Why are the Bonds being issued? What will the proceeds be used for?:

The offer of the Bonds is being made in order to raise funding for the Group to be applied in part repayment of the external debt facilities of the Group set out in Section 9 (Additional Information), to increase the number of sources from which the Group obtains its funding and to spread the debt maturity profile of the Group. Section 9 (Additional Information) sets out all of the external debt facilities of the Group.

Why wouldn't the bond holder buy the shares and get almost 2x the annual return he gets from the bonds? Seems a pretty rubbish deal for the bond holders to me. But what do I know?


Well, seems like a pretty standard risk vs reward trade off. Equity and liabilities are around equal so a 50% decline in property prices could see bondholders get their money back in full while shareholders get wiped out - if things go well, shareholders effectively get extra compensation for bearing the greater downside risk.

What are alternatives rates for six-year lending/deposits? Gilts offer a bit over 1% pa. Bank fixed-rate accounts/bonds currently seem to go up to 2.67%pa for five years.

FredBloggs wrote:The thing is that the REIT currently trades at a discount to NAV. The assets are mostly concrete and aren't going away any time soon. If RGL somehow went up in a puff of smoke, the concrete is still standing and the tenants are still paying rent. I don't correlate that as equity risk in the same way as, say, Carillion or Provident Financial. Like chalk and cheese. I see zero reason to buy the bonds, others have different views, obviously.


The concrete might be standing, but might also be falling apart. The tenants might all decide to up sticks and relocate their business to Poland, the economy could collapse after Brexit (as I'm told, incessantly, it will it we leave ;) ) or the building sector could boom and build loads more offices and warehouses reducing the rents if there aren't enough tenants to go round.

Plenty of risk for a REIT, particularly one holding office space that can become a ghost town almost overnight.

Regional's share price and thus high yield are a reflection on its relatively small portfolio and thus company size, compounded by the relatively short leases on its properties as reflected by the WAULTs. It's a small REIT with short leases, and therefore riskier/more volatile than others.

Yes I understood that the point about short leases is that companies who aren't too convinced that they will still need the premises ( for whatever reason) in a few years time sign short leases which heightens the risks of voids, in a down turn more of these companies are likely to cease trading yet that high debt interest will still need to be paid. Of course if the economy continues to improve as the Brexit situation evolves then there should be double digit total returns , but investors need to be able to hold through a downturn and accept a reduced yield.
