Director dealings: Persimmon boss sells some shares near technical resistance

(Sharecast News) - Persimmon boss Dave Jenkinson sold 89,851 shares at 2,476.88p apiece on 3 June as the shares approached technical resistance at around 2,500.0p.




He pocketed £2,218,813.94 in the process.

In its most recent trading update year-to-date through the end of April, the company reported a "strong" start to 2020, with average private sales during the first 11 weeks up by roughly 10%.

Even throughout the lockdown, customer enquiries remained "at good levels, providing some encouragement on the resilience of demand."

It also boasted of a "robust" current forward sales position, which including legal completions taken to date in 2020 stood at £2.4bn (2019: £2.7bn).

The company also reported an increase in the average private selling price of a new Persimmon home in its forward order book to approximately £244,500, against about £237,850 at the same point in 2019.

Following the 3 June transaction, Jenkinson still held 783,290 shares.
