ed 123: So, it's opened up at 129-135p. MMs being cautious. On current news, I'll continue holding. This may be a low point. In a year's time, if the stated headwinds have passed through and lfl sales are up too, then BON could trade in the market at a p/e of 10 again, giving a share price of 180p, rising to 200p for full year ending 2018. Dividends look very safe due to the cash position and good cash flow. (My own view - no advice intended)
imranawan: I agree with your points Eastbourne but sold out for a 10%ish loss on Friday morning for the following reasons: a) Trading normalised after they issued the profit warning in December, for a short period which they alluded to in the January update b) However, in the statement they issued on Friday they alluded to trading being challenging again, and said they were much more cautious for 2017 and their outlook. As a result I believe earnings forecasts have been downgraded by 7% for 2017. I know the sector is facing challenges as Next reiterated in their recent announcedment but there could be other underlying reasons I guess. c) Given the downgraded earnings forecasts, the share price is likely to drift down probably a little lower in the medium term, and people will now wait until the full year results, and examine the outlook statement closely. d) When the new CEO starts I suspect she may well kitchen sink stuff, to set expectations low, albeit they are already low. e) Even the current valuation is undemanding, if they do issue another profit warning the share price will tank. The market at the current time is unforgiving. Just look at GMD - in a completly different retail space, but they've issued two profit warnings and the share price has been decimated. f) SHOE for example warned on profits last April, and the share price bounced has been mixed. They paid a nice special and regular divi, but again their outlook was cautious. Again I sold out for a modest profit in SHOE. I believe they're due to issue a trading update, and may well surprise on the upside, but I wanted to protect my capital. g) I'd rather be invested in companies in the current market where they are able to grow earnings and as a consequence there is likely to be some appreciation in the share price. The current market tends to reward shares with a clear and demonstrable growth. I acknowledge some of these aren't cheap but you have to pay up for growth companies in the current market. h) Given the current challenges in the retail space there are other retail plays in the market. Next has fallen 25-30% since the start of the year, and is a higher quality business on a fairly modest rating now. DEB is also cheaper. I hope you and other holders in BON do well, but I lack confidence in the underlying company so have sold out. In my short investing experience, I tend to follow my instincts.
imranawan: I sold out this morning for a 10%ish loss, as after reflecting on the statement, and their cautious outlook on the 2017 FY, I don't think the share price will make much headway in the foreseeable future. Amy annoyed as in hindsight I should have sold out on the small bounce in the share price last week, especially the recent statement made by NXT. Given the weakness in the sector and NXT reporting that 2016 will be challenging I think BON will definitely find the next 12 months tough. GLAH.
eastbourne1982: Yes hopefully this appointment should start to see a recovery in the price, there has been a bit more action in terms of trades this week and the share price is starting to creep up, I'm around breakeven now and am looking to hold for a run back to the £2.30 - £2.50 mark.
eastbourne1982: Warned about what Deano, the share price has nudged a little lower since you appeared, where were you with your warnings when it was around £3 ??
eastbourne1982: imranawan, I reckon the share price could move sideways between £1.75 and £2 in the short term, I decided to take a position at around the £1.93 mark as I just thought they looked cheap, I haven't gone all in yet and am happy to add if the price drops a little more, I just felt everything stacked up from a valuation point of view and the net cash position is the aspect that really gives me that added confidence, net cash of between 18 - 19 million v a market cap of under 100 million is pretty impressive. At £3 these didn't look massively overvalued so in the medium term I see these plodding back towards £2.50 plus. This isn't a particularly exciting business, it is a solid business that should make around 10 - 12 million, generate good cash flow and pay a decent dividend, it is a pure value play imho. Over to you Deano, why will these hit £1.20 - £1.30 ?
imranawan: I've added Bon to the w/list and agree with your point comments Eastbourne1982. It reminds me of SHOE which was also a recent float and performed well initially, and than they warned on profits in April, and I seem to recall they said they sold less ankle boots (which was the higher margin product), and the share price took a battering before bouncing back slightly. I see similar parallels with BON and I calculate that they should achieve EPS of 17p-18p this year based on my calculations. I'm also interested in buying in, but waiting to see where the price settles, as I bought into SHOE shortly after they warned on profits, and the price kept on falling.
deanroberthunt: Bargain retailer getting battered Budget retailer Bonmarche (LSE: BON) has not enjoyed as solid a performance as Vodafone in midweek trading, however. In fact the company’s share price was last seen tanking 28% following the release of disappointing trading numbers, sending the stock to record lows in the process. Bonmarche announced that “trading conditions during December, particularly since ‘Black Friday’ on 27 November, have been very challenging.” The business had stressed the need for a return to more normal conditions in last month’s half-year results as critical to it meeting its full-year expectations. But with market pressures persisting, the retailer now expects pre-tax profit to clock in at between £10.5m and £12m in the year to March 2015, down from £12.4m last year. And Bonmarche provided a double-whammy to investors by announcing that chief executive Beth Borthwick, the architect of the retailer’s improvement after it exited administration, is set to depart the company in favour of fashion giant Karen Millen. While Bonmarche’s multi-channel development and solid product investment could still provide rich rewards in the long term, I believe investors should perhaps sit on the sidelines for the moment as questions over the firm’s direction — not to mention the impact of worsening market conditions — could keep shares locked in freefall.
ed 123: The share price fell during March and (so far) has suffered a muted fall (5%)on today's news. Did the market get a whiff of this during March? Agree with both, not a good update and there is scant explanation - but those who understand the sector may be able to deduce the explanation. The lfl fall in the 13 weeks to 28 March 2015 may be due to discounting on stock which didn't sell due to the mild autumn. There are follow on effects for a retailer that has a poor season. Low year end stock gives the chance to perform well in the current year. For me, the jury is out, but I'm hopeful. The verdict will come on 12 June, when there should be an initial comment on current year trading, alongside the results for last year. Clothing retailers can have a short spell of poor trading and bounce back later. Bonmarche is financially strong, pays a dividend, and serves a growing sector of the population. A 'hold', pending the next update? Nai, dyor.
