bookbroker - if they were trying to be Waitrose, then that might be the case, but if you look in Card factory you will see that they have a wide range of cards from low-budget up to good quality cards at a competitive price. Some of the cards ranges are far from budget, and compare fantastically well against the competition. They have a wide-range of linked products that complement this, and the vertical integration of the business allows it to stand comfortably away from the likes of Clintons. Debt-free and cash-generative, this is a business that is capable of holding it's own - many discounters have been quickly written off in the past, look at Poundland, Lidl, and Aldi. The assumption could be that the online companies will take their market but there will always be a place for a well run high-street store. I love the internet but sometimes I just want to pick something up and look at it - I don't get that with Amazon. That said, I know what you mean about the look of the store but they are functional and I suspect that they don't pay top-dollar on wages. If you're looking at market value, there are many more companies that I'd say were overvalued before I said it about this one.

Frankly Clinton, Card and B&M are hideous stores, it is a sure sign that shoppers have no interest in what they are really purchasing, but then the choice is so limited, the quality is naff, the individual might as well get their child to draw the card, and insert a greeting, it amazes me that this can be valued at £800+million, if price and value is all that matters then do not bother shopping at all! Apologies for being so cynical, but I just see dross on the high street now, so I am hardly surprised that Amazon is basically going to eventually put everything bar convenience out of business1

Rates adjustment is far more likely to be a hit than a gain, doesn't change the long term story but is unhelpful meddling from govt.

Anybody have an idea how the new council tax ratings might affect them? They have more of a Northern presence so I can imagine they might do well. There rates bill must be colossal and any reductions would go straight to profits. Correct me if I'm wrong.

3i think there could be 100p upside, it's based on technicals, which I'm not keen on, but for those who are and understand them there's a nice chart with the full article. I've just pasted Alistair Strang's conclusion below, the rest online:- http://tinyurl.com/hlp4a46 "This brings the argument - for the weeks ahead - of any price growth bettering 'blue' - currently 256p - as leading to an initial 267p. Secondary, if 267p is bettered, comes in at 290p, maybe even 342p if we're witnessing an attempt to cover the circled manipulation gaps. With the share currently trading at around 245p, the best we're proposing if everything comes right is a rise of 100p. That should be sufficient to cover the quid wasted on a Valentines card at the petrol station! Some years, I even suspect our dogs don't appreciate them."

This is the counter-intuitive case for Card Factory, in tougher times they increase their market share. As Sports Direct did during the last slowdown.

My Son fits out the new shops for CARD,and tells me talking to Management that this is the case all over the UK.

There is a Clinton's right next to a card factory in my town, the Clinton's is always empty and the card factory packed. Clearly beneficial for card.

Weird share price spike down today. I thought perhaps a broker downgrade, but nothing showing?

they certainly do throw off a lot of cash. Sadly the whole bricks and mortar retail sector is completely out of favour at present.

Cant see any reason they wont be able to maintain last years total divi. and certainly cant match last years return anywhere else.

IC had a small piece in their daily summaries:- Two big pieces of news from Card Factory (CARD) today: first, chief financial officer Darren Bryant has announced his retirement (although he will remain with the group until a replacement is found), and second, year-to-date like-for-like store sales growth has improved to 0.4 per cent. That still lags the prior year’s growth rate somewhat, but management seem confident they will deliver underlying pre-tax profits for the full-year slightly ahead of market expectations. Buy.

I think that a lot of analysts were expecting to see negative LFL numbers so a good result and certainly enough to draw a line under the recent share price decline.

Buy Moonpig. They know how to do on-line. Would also bring in a more up-market customer base.

Think they need to sort online out first. Id prefer if they spent some of the profits this year on marketing for online to secure long term health of the business rather than a massive divys for one year.

I agree. Positive LFL, no matter how small, is very impressive with low footfall this year. Pleased to see continued store expansion in outlook statement - tells me that theres still plenty of money to be made from greeting cards!

E1982, I view the card market as in inevitable long-term decline. I have daughters aged 17-21, and that generation don't do birthday cards or Christmas cards at all - it is all taken care of through social media. The idea of sending a card is completely alien to them.
