Five Point Holdings, LLC (NYSE:FPH), an owner and developer of large mixed-use, master-planned communities in California (including Valencia), reported its fourth quarter and year-end 2019 results. Emile Haddad, Chairman and CEO, said, “The end of last year marked an inflection point for our company as we had our first homesite sales in December at Valencia/Newhall. A lot has changed over the past three weeks. While we hope that the unprecedented conditions facing the country and the economy will be short-lived, we believe we are well positioned to withstand these challenges. Our balance sheet remains strong, and we have the ability to quickly adjust our land development expenditures in response to changing market conditions. We look forward to the opportunities that await us once we have weathered this storm.”

    AND why are they trying to re-brand Newhall Ranch as “Valencia” anyway? Could it be because Newhall Ranch has a really bad reputation with Mission Village built on top of an old oil field and Landmark village located right across from one of the largest dumps in the US?

  2. waterwatcher says:

    “When used, the words “anticipate,” “believe,” “expect,” “intend,” “may,” “might,” “plan,” “estimate,” “project,” “should,” “will,” “would,” “result” and similar expressions that do not relate solely to historical matters are intended to identify forward-looking statements. This press release may contain forward-looking statements regarding: our expectations of our future revenues, costs and financial performance; future demographics and market conditions”

    I guess that means they can say everything is just fine so you will buy their stock while they know darn well there are all kinds of problems – like people can’t buy a house if they don’t have a job and we may run out of water to build all those houses anyway, especially with all the wells recently closed due to pollution.
