|has Neptune got anything to do with this share price rise?|
|Hi Larva, PAYS looking good today, domt know anything about the company but chart looks interesting, I'm trading AMUR at moment, news iminent lots potential, recent rise from circa 5p now holding circa 12p potentail plus 20p V soon.
Just bought PAYS after director buying yesterday|
|Back to £2.... Unexpected. But good.K|
|I'ts what the Staff are paid to do, nothing less would be expected, to establish the customers needs, give good friendly and accurate service, keep the customer informed of order progres, and if fitting, ensure the fitting date and time are met with the fitting completed to a high standard in good time to the customers satisfaction, why these days does it seam this is so hard to achieve and people have to write on web sites "I was happy with the service and fitting" etc. it should be the norm....
sadly not I suspect.
CPR up 1p today, still very short of the £2 mark.
Sorry for "rant"
|Markup in good customer reviews in trustpilot.
|Apologies in advance for annoying those who don't like ex-holders posting, but I think failure to hold now could be the beginning of the end. One of those special CPR stop-busting spikes up, followed by another meaty drop to around 150p?|
next warning 70p|

|As posted earlier this year my thoughts that the share price would fall further preventing me re investing in CPR are all to clear, I didn't think it would take this long to drop under £2 but hear it is. I've been one of the strongest bulls supporting the company for a very long time during the early years, but the numbers, the charts, the reports, are all to clear.
Lets see what the intrim results are like on 13th December!
DYOR and, all in MHO of course.

Good luck all holders.

Worth a "punt" maybe, I've not traded CPR for years now, but not to say I wont in the future, My sights are are on other stocks at present.
CPR is close to my heart for a number of reasons, and its sad to see the company where it is today and the share price trying to tread water.

Net worth at 59.5 mil, back to 2006 levels and falling.

The share price has held off well from droping below the £2 mark, interesting, I did think it might have dived under for a bit, holding well at the moment.
|One can only hope his posts were more sensible in the past then toffeeman.
Second to trolls, like larva who I have filtered, the most annoying posts are from non-holders of poorly performing shares who can't help but mention how well they did in the past.
To have to read it first thing Monday too...|
|Fair enough just seemed a strange post. I remember the name no doubt a good poster just seemed a bit of a strange one...|
|Kumala has been a long term poster on this board who sensibly fell out of love with CPR.|
|concerns over future UK consumer spending have risen|
|Wow! You pop on to tell peeps that you sold at £9? What is the point of that?|
|Would you like to elaborate a little more on your past success here? I'm sure we'd all appreciate some further detail...it'd pass the time as we suffer down at these levels.
...or perhaps dig out a thread of a share that you bought at £9, sold at 70p and that is now £12...but there again, you'd probably wonder what the point would be and keep quiet.
Great shame indeed. :/|
|Wow. Under 2 quid....been sliping away for sometime looking at the chart. Shame. Great shame indeed. CPR had it all in the past. Great leadership with prooven track record. Good expansion from its first warehouse in Barking and first store in canning town to flotation and expansion into Europe and a shareprice pre market circa 70p to a high of circa £12. Where did it all go wrong? Mmmmmm.. well at this rate the share price is heading sub £1. The company is certinly not the same now as in years gone by and this is reflected in the share price and once when the smaller local retailer was geting beaten by the mighty rise n expansion of CPR the tables have turned.CPR was my main holding for many years. And indeed i invested heavily from market launch and enjoyed the heady ride with welcomed divi's. Not a holder any more selling my final stock on the decline at just under £9Have v fond memories of CPR for many reasons and still follow the progress of the company with interest.Not a buyer at these prices. GLA...K|
|And looks like a buy as it's even above bid.|
|Another big chunk of a trade @ 195p reported late, this time 247k|
|Well said Eva
I have just spent a few grand on new carpets: yes I went into Carpetsh1te and looked, but ended up buying from a local 'old fashioned' retailer who knew something about carpets, provided a great service and was cheaper (much) when you include fitting.
So what is CPR's competitive advantage? 'Free' credit doesn't exist - it's in the price (always was and always will be - although when interest rates were 15% you could tell a story and CPR did!) economies of scale? - nope not if the little local shed can do better on price. Branding? Certainly not - you might be able to see if someone wears a Paul Smith suit but not where the carpet came from - and do you want to tell your friends that you bought in CPR? - I think not. Personnel - no way!! Service? you've got to be joking. Physical environment of the store? - Does it matter when you buy carpet once every 5 years at most - nah.
So if I had the bottle I would be shorting CPR not buying stock - I have tried it in the past (search this thread) and the free float made it too strong and the market remained irrational for longer than I could margin!
Now someone else can work through the financial fundies!|
|Rather than saying that you have researched this to death and fundamentals are great tell us what you have found out and give us your view of the fundamentals why you like them so much. We can then all decide for ourselves if the fundamentals are great - that way you don't sound like a ramper. It would be very useful to all. It might also start a useful debate. I have nothing against you would just like to hear something other than directors have bought loads and their salaries aren't great. They may be extremely wealthy and/or have other on exec roles have you checked that? Salary is not everything if you own multiple income producing assets. I just want to hear something useful rather than the constant "I just have / am about to top up!"|
