John Loos comments on the unchanged Repo Rate

SARB leaves Repo Rate unchanged after only 1 x 25 basis point cut in the current cutting cycle. Weak consumer confidence likely to remain, and shift to a more cautious consumer expected to continue says John Loos, Household and Property Sector Strategist.

Examining recent years’ of improvement in both the Household Sector Debt-to-Disposable Income Ratio (decline) as well as the Household Sector Net Savings Rate (rise), it would appear that weak consumer confidence levels in a stagnant economy are encouraging households as a collective towards a more cautious financial approach.

Grit reported strong financial results for the year ended 30 June 2017. 

After declining by 11 points in 2Q2017, the FNB/BER Building Confidence Index improved by 3 index points to 35 in 3Q2017.

2nd Quarter 2017 SARB New Mortgage Lending data, released in the latest SARB Quarterly Bulletin, showed a renewed slowing in the year-on-year growth rate into negative territory in the 2nd quarter, after a briefly positive growth rate in the 1st quarter of 2017.

Echo Polska Properties exceeds interim targets

SE listed Echo Polska Properties (EPP) - the pure Polish property play - today released interim results for the six-month period ended June 2017 (“the period”) with distributions of 5.192 eurocents a share 3.2% ahead of budget.

Fairvest Property Holdings Limited (“Fairvest”) today announced strong results for the 2017 financial year.

For businesses that are seeking to be more efficient and productive, consolidating regional offices and bringing together multiple divisions into one large corporate headquarters, makes commercial sense.

Growthpoint Properties today posted distribution growth of 6.9% per share for its half-year to 30 June 2017, taking its full-year distribution growth to 6.5% per share and delivering results ahead of its market guidance.
