The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: Barratt Developments, Redrow & housebuilders
Neil Shah of Edison Group looks at the housebuilding sector in the light of Barratt's bid for Redrow, a deal the market has not looked favourably upon. There is a severe shortage of new housing but it is a difficult time for housebuilders, with difficulties over planning and environmental rules and higher interest rates, Neil feels that the sector is cyclical and that, over the long term, the fundamentals are attractive for investors.

The Business Of Film

The Business of Film: Migration, Argylle, The Zone of Interest & American Fiction
While UK box office rose 25%, James Cameron-Wilson found the animated Migration, #1, as processed as American cheese. #2 spy spoof Argylle from Matthew Vaughn he found over-familiar, over-long, unbelievable and lazy filmmaking. #5 is The Zone of Interest which, despite its 5 Oscar nominations, can be hard to see in cinemas. James, however, heartily recommends American Fiction at #10, also garnering 5 Oscar nominations, with Jeffrey Wright as a multi-faceted writer trying to break down stereotypes.

Gadgets & Gizmos: Apple Vision Pro, healing broken bones, driling straight & dinosaur feathers
Steve Caplin enviously discusses Apple's Vision Pro's features, still only available in the US. Korean scientists believe electric bandages will heal bones more quickly. An app will guide blind people directly to bus stops and another will help identify anything they pick up. A clever gadget will ensure that you can drill perpendicular holes. Seoul scientists believe they're discovered the reason that dinosaurs had feathers before they could fly. A new minimal phone does less for a steep price. And an American scientist has been told AI cannot be an inventor.

The Bigger Picture: Debt problems, the BRICs and the downside of government interference
Tim Price of Price Value Partners considers the possible outcomes, given that interest rates have risen from a record low in a world awash with debt. He discusses the pendulum of economic growth shifting towards the BRICs and Asia (minus China). And he laments the failure of governments to learn the conseqences of interfering with markets. He suggests, when it comes to the drive to Net Zero, that people ask "Who benefits"? And, explaining his own investment principles, while he still feels inflation is a clear and present danger, he believes that precious metals and commodity stocks are at bargain levels.

This Is Money: Why would the Bank of England cut rates this year?
The Bank of England held base rate once again at 5.25%, the fourth hold in succession – but this time, it was a genuine split by MPC members. So, when will we start seeing rates fall – and will inflation really be at the target 2% by April? Simon Lambert, Lee Boyce and Georgie Frost discuss what another interest rate pause means for you – and what that means for savings and mortgage rates, along with investors. Where do you stand on the smart meter debate? With This is Money readers getting in touch to say they’re stuck with faulty devices, are they worth having? Lee says he still has no plans to get one of the marmite devices while Simon believes they can be worth it, especially for those who are rubbish at submitting meter readings. We also go back to school and have a maths lesson from Mr Lambert to reveal the six real world calculations you should have in your arsenal to improve your financial health. And we get on the money therapist’s couch to discuss the pitfalls of getting - and over-using - a joint bank account… should a partner ever be made to feel guilty for spending?

The Hypnotist: for Healing with Slow and Steady Progress
Adam Cox helps with building a positive mindset for long-term health conditions, but the episode also provides an interesting analogy with national economic recovery after the twin shocks of Brexit and the pandemic. He explains how impatience in expecting instant recovery is not helpful, that it's unrealistic to expect to 'wake up and find everything back to normal instantly'. Healing is not binary: it's slow and steady, and an appreciation that 'progress is more important than perfection' leads to a mindset of optimism and possibility. Isn't that just what we need as a nation?
