Anyone holding GFRD? (GFRD)     

ckmtang - 06 Nov 2003 20:17

partridge - 18 Oct 2004 11:26 - 9 of 82

Looks a quality business, many parallels with KIE, which I have held since they demerged from Beazer and which has been very steady performer over those 10 years. Record profits every year, ungeared, some high quality PFI contracts up and running to underpin long term cash flows and a good contribution from housebuilding as well as general construction. Intend to hold for (even longer) term and would welcome Fundamentalist view.

godwin3 - 18 Oct 2005 10:10 - 10 of 82

Agree with you, Partridge. Your view looks pretty fundamentalist to me! Anyway, I too am a long-term holder. There's value here, I think.
