Persimmon Earnings: Shares Remain Appealing Despite Bleak 2023 Outlook Amid Slowing Housing Market

Grant Slade Senior Equity Analyst

Analyst Note

| Grant Slade |

We were unsurprised by no-moat Persimmon’s performance in 2022, which benefitted from strong housing market conditions throughout the first nine months of 2022 representing the cyclical peak of the U.K. housing market cycle. Consequently, Persimmon’s full-year 2022 delivery of 14,868 home completions, underlying EBIT of GBP 1.0 billion, and EPS of GBP 2.42 broadly aligned with our forecasts. Robust average selling price, or ASP, growth in 2022, proved sufficient to largely offset soaring built cost inflation, with full-year EBIT margin easing a modest 80 basis points year on year to 27.2%.

Style is an investment factor that has a meaningful impact on investment risk and returns. Style is calculated by combining value and growth scores, which are first individually calculated.

High-growth stocks tend to represent the technology, healthcare, and communications sectors. They rarely distribute dividends to shareholders, opting for reinvestment in their businesses. More value-oriented stocks tend to represent financial services, utilities, and energy stocks. These are established companies that reliably pay dividends.
