Oh dear, two large companies combine and, like an intergalactic "event" only negative matter remains....a case of 1 + 1 = 0.2
Let me say - sp a year ago was 10x today's - so this business has earned its place in the 90% club....and maybe more to come, as they will need to go overseas for cash, if the UK is dry.
I doubt there is a UK Builder with enough dosh to bail-out this dullard. They all thought they could expand until the UK burst with immigrants - yet they consistently went for pricier properties and projects where ( even now), there is some doubt whether there are enough jobs to support new-build developments.
EDIT ( Nov 2015 ) - Seven years on and we're at 183p - so anyone that bought at the all-time Low has done very well - but the Market was fearful and that meant few were Buying. 2009/2010 averaged about 40p - that was a good time if you had the LT cash.
With the rise and yield-multiplier effect, this is looking like Buying it was "probably" inspired.... but it has not regained that earlier Value - which will surely take a lot longer.

BB (Balerboy): On the contrary, I do have faith.
If it pushes past 54 this time, may well jump in again.

Taylor Wimpey reports that Group trading is at the upper end of its expectations. The balance sheet remains strong, with net debt lower than expectations at £218 million on 31 March 2012.
The strength of the business has been recognised by the credit rating agencies and it has received upgrades from Moody's (to B1) and Fitch (to BB-) in recent weeks.
The balance sheet strength allows TW to make further selective investment in its land portfolio to maximise performance across the housing market cycle and to return excess capital to shareholders as appropriate.
However, mindful of the ongoing uncertainty in the wider economy, its high quality land portfolio, increased order book and strong balance sheet also give Taylor Woodrow a strong position should market conditions weaken.
A statement from the board said: "While mortgage availability remains a constraint on the housing market, we have made a strong start to the year and remain confident of our prospects in 2012.
"We continue to expect to deliver further steady improvement in margin, return on net operating assets and net asset value through the ongoing delivery of our strategy.
"In particular, we are achieving margins at the upper end of our expectations through strong performance on new sales outlets and further enhanced returns on those new outlets sourced from our strategic land portfolio."
