I hope you have a hard hat netcurtains - this decline is going to be very painful for you. You are too emotionally blinded by this company and are not looking at the fundamental numbers and valuation multiple to earnings.moorsie2
The Guardian lol! Has to be accurate then!harebridge
Comparing Poundland to Boohoo- LOL!Stick to ASOS mate!harebridge
harebridge: Best will in the world ASOS was never the poundland of fashion.... As fashion editors note: "She points out that 23% of the prices at Boohoo are in the £5-£9.99 category, compared to only 11% of Asos products. “You start to see who that shopper is they’re targeting.”" I think BooHoo have taken poundland of clothes as far as it can go - take a look at Poundland share graph to see what happens next.netcurtains
Netcurtains, it's not as simple as looking at graphs. ASOS is the undisputed internet king in fashion retail with sales of 1 billion and commentators still reckon Boohoo.com is at the stage of development where ASOS was in 2010. On that basis, if history repeats Boohoo.com could grow its sales to 1bn in the next few years. International expansion could see it grow into a global giant.harebridge

harebridge: you say "different stages of growth". If you look at graph shapes on both companies, both crashed and rose back up again. I don't see anything really different. "PrettyLittleThings" is a bit of a "con" if you ask me as it probably pretty much linked to "BooHoo" in so many ways already (daddies boys). So, it might have something in it, but I suspect its probably already in the price. I cant see any significant difference between the two. Isn't it possibly just a clever way to get £5M out of the company?netcurtains
ASOS & Boohoo are at different stages of their growth.Boohoo is possibly where ASOS was 5 years ago, so could see a better return in the medium term.These sort of companies are notoriously difficult to value & much depends on sentiment.harebridge
harebridge: I am aware of that, but I am also aware that ASOS sold a big wad of stuff over Christmas and new year. If I sell on the dip only to see it bounce back huge when the actual results come out I'd be kicking myself. BooHoo and ASOS are both roughly in the same market. Its pretty much a "no brainer" if BooHoo has done well ASOS will have too.. ASOS have the distinct advantage over BooHoo of being an "Amazon" type of site - people will nearly always go there first. From papers concerning Amazon: " Amazon did well. Sales in Britain were double last year's, and worldwide they rose 55%. Unlike would-be imitators, Amazon, the first big etailer, has a household name, marketing muscle, and outstanding delivery. Such strengths always mattered on the High Street, and are now helping traditional retailers muscle on to the web. " I would say ASOS is a "household name", "marketing muscle" and "outstanding delivery".... So I'm caught, I can see that 9 times out 10 shorters are right. But on the other hand I've got to stick to my principles, If I think a Company is Good, I stick with it "hell and high water"... Its the only way to be an investor who has a very busy day job (AngularJS developer for half the high street). I take CAMDEN fashion over MANCHESTER - Sorry - no offence but I'm a Londoner first and foremost. It is quite possible that this is a "manufactured" dip so the big girls in the city can buy a wad of shares cheap - We know what these city types are like - short like hell so they can buy in..... If true, they will not be getting any of my shares! lolnetcurtains
Netcurtains, Trading Statement for the four months ended 31 December 2015 was only announced a couple of weeks ago. The markets weren't at all impressed & the shorters are all over this now. Could be worth cutting your losses here.harebridge
I have been short since November and am very happy to stay short all the way to sub 2000moorsie2
Ni Moorsie2: No - your views I have to take seriously as shorters tend to be more experienced than longers. I will take that on board. However I'm going to wait until results etc because, judging by "early indicators" I suspect they will be better than people think. Being on the FRONT PAGE of the DAILY MIRROR for SLAVE T-SHIRTS (for example) will definitely increase teen traffic significantly, and its all free. lolnetcurtains
This is not a jingo-istic rara for UK business. It is simply hard nosed investment decision. You might be right and I might be right - but for the reasons stated I am short on the share price and expect it to be lower than 3000 by mid year 2016. Fancy a bet on it?? ;)moorsie2
Moorsie2: Haven't you just moved the goal posts. An hour ago you were on about ASOS as a "brand" now its about its valuation. Clearly some brands warrant large P/E ratios - even some FTSE 100 stocks (Eg ARM). "IF" ASOS can grow into the USA or Europe in the same way it has done in the UK then it obviously is worth every penny. I think the UK needs to back its winners more. ASOS is a winner and give it a chance to prove it. I suspect the USA to Japan love UK teenage fashion. This is a good test (worth repeating again): type: "Dr Martens" in the ASOS site you get loads of Dr Martens. If you type: Dr Martens in "Top Shop" or "BooHoo" you get NOTHING (or next to nothing). Http://www.asos.com/search/dr-martens?q=dr+martens LOADS!! now BooHoo: Http://www.boohoo.com/page/search?q=dr+martens (nothing - not even close) Now topshop: Http://www.topshop.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/CatalogNavigationSearchResultCmd?langId=-1&storeId=12556&catalogId=33057&Dy=1&Nty=1&beginIndex=1&pageSize=20&Nrpp=20&pageNum=1&Ntt=dr+martens (ONE PAIR)netcurtains
Netcurtains -don't misunderstand me my issue is not with ASOS as a company - my issue is with its highly inflated valuation. I tend to agree with the author on iii who published this view 2 days ago ---------------- Further downside ahead Also posting major share price falls thus far in 2016 is online clothing retailer ASOS (LSE:ASC). Its shares are down 8% in the year-to-date and this takes their fall over the last two years to 50%. That's despite the company making significant improvements to its strategy and business model, including focusing to a greater extent on key markets instead of attempting to expand quite so rapidly into new territories. While ASOS offers excellent customer service, and a superb range of items that has kept its offering highly relevant and popular among its target market of twentysomethings, its valuation appears to be rather high. Certainly, earnings growth of 23% for the current year is an impressive outlook, but with the company's shares having a P/E ratio of 56.8, there appears to be a further 20% downside ahead.moorsie2
Thanks LiquidKid. My daughter sells stuff on the ASOS market place. ITs pretty good, and right on the line - as you would expect....netcurtains

Moorsie2: For example if you type: "Dr Martens" in the ASOS site you get loads of Dr Martens. If you type: Dr Martens in "Top Shop" or "BooHoo" you get NOTHING (or next to nothing). Http://www.asos.com/search/dr-martens?q=dr+martens LOADS!! now BooHoo: Http://www.boohoo.com/page/search?q=dr+martens (nothing - not even close) Now topshop: Http://www.topshop.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/CatalogNavigationSearchResultCmd?langId=-1&storeId=12556&catalogId=33057&Dy=1&Nty=1&beginIndex=1&pageSize=20&Nrpp=20&pageNum=1&Ntt=dr+martens (ONE PAIR) In the 21 century ASOS must be worth Topshop and BooHoo combined and then some. Why would you ever shop at BooHoo or Topshop when you can get all you want at ASOS?netcurtains
Moorsie2: Nor does Amazon. The site ITSELF if the brand. Not the products it sells.netcurtains
It has no sustainable brand that will allow it to grow its sales margins. Moreover it has to run extremely fast to be the goto site for young"BoBo" fashionistas. This it has done successfully so far - but the pe is calculated on the fact that it is guaranteed to do this for the next 20-30 years with no failure... Hugely risky 20% correction in share price drop is most likely from this positionmoorsie2
Thanks netcurtains, it looks like we will have to wait till then. Big fall today, lets hope it recovers soonmaloneyt
Best for us would be a Takeover now at double the present sp And why not if its such a good company down 5% whats going on?saturn5
There should be a bigger trading update about 12th March and a results about 2nd April. So, how is the company doing? Well as far as I can see the company has so many hits on its site that its actually DOWN!!!! Denial of service: Http://www.asos.com/ However its Twitter and Facebook links are ok... Could be some mega sale going on. ps - its BACK ONLINE NOW.... Phew!!!netcurtains
