Income attractions at Belvoir

It’s fair to say that buy-to-let landlords have been under George Osborne’s cosh. He’s introduced a raised stamp duty rate and withdrawn higher-rate tax relief. However, Belvoir Lettings has seen little change in the market as far as its core lettings agency business is concerned. Furthermore, the shares have responded positively to a major acquisition which makes Belvoir the largest UK lettings agent.

Wincanton keeps on trucking

Wincanton CEO Adrian Colman feels his company is now back on an even keel after a period of fire-fighting.

A return to the dividend list illustrates these positive changes and the fact that management can now fully focus on growing the business.

VP maintains its reputation for quality  

Plant hire company VP continues to perform well against a mixed backdrop. Management said that the core infrastructure, housing and construction markets remained generally supportive and have offset weakness in oil and gas.

Redhall on the road back to profitability
