adyfc: The share price mauling hasnt affected the quality of the carpets
bookbroker: It is only one Sim. in the original format, what we know is that margins are pretty skinny, but the co. is working hard to improve its image, and it does seem to be having a positive effect, it is difficult to know how performance is overall, we also have seen the significant re-rating of the co., hence the share price rebalancing, their website is much improved in terms of interaction. One of the biggest problems for this co. has been the onerous leases, they are still in a sort of roll-off from them, and where possible re-negotiating much shorter terms, so the business can be quicker to react where unprofitable locations are taken out of the estate, time will tell, difficult to predict!
walbrock82: Management attitude of conserving cash and refreshing stores’ format is the right strategy for the turnaround of its business. Also, I get the sense Carpetright wants to emulate WH Smith by focusing on margins improvement while stemming the decline in sales. However, the share price of Carpetright PLC seemed less enthusiastic, despite the return to profits (making £14m per annum) and reduction of debt (£7m in borrowings from £105m, six years ago). The interesting thing is the current market valuation of £140m is 85% below peak valuation of £1bn. And, profits are growing, due to the refreshment of their stores' format. You can read more:
kumala: May 2012 Share price £6.25 Phil Harris leaves company. Where is the Share price now January 2017.? Under £2, and not far from float price. K Guardian 11th MAY 2012. Dan Milmo Carpetright founder steps down after 24 years Lord Harris is a self-made millionaire who made his fortune through selling carpets for more than half a century and founded the group in 1988 Lord Harris is ending his 24-year reign as chief executive of Carpetright, with the struggling flooring specialist announcing the former finance director of Sainsbury's as his replacement. The move comes a fortnight after the retailer issued its seventh profit warning in just over year, triggered by rising living costs and a moribund housing market. Lord Harris is a self-made millionaire who made his fortune through selling carpets for more than half a century and founded the group in 1988. However, the educational philanthropist and Conservative party donor will maintain an influential role at the business by retaining his position as chairman. His replacement is also no stranger to the company. Darren Shapland is a non-executive director at Carpetright and was the firm's finance director between 2002 and 2005. Shapland then left to take up the same role at Sainsbury's, later becoming group development director. Lord Harris said: "I am confident he will make a huge contribution to the future of the business." Carpetright also announced that the heads of its UK and European businesses will step down from the board in order to retain "an appropriate balance" between executive and non-executive directors. Sheila Noakes, Carpetright's senior independent director, paid tribute to Lord Harris. "He is a hard act to follow," she said. A Carpetright spokesman said Harris would initially work four days a week as chairman before gradually reducing his day-to-day role. Harris's son Martin is the firm's commercial director. In Carpetright's latest profit warning, the company said annual profits would be between £3m and £4m, a sharp decline from previous forecasts of between £12m and £17m. Shapland said: "I am delighted to be appointed as chief executive of the Carpetright business and I am looking forward to working with Lord Harris and the team in the future development of the business." Shares in Carpetright closed up 1.2% at 625.5p, valuing the business at £417m.
simso: A quick review of the numbers would indicate why the share price is so weak. The average Brokers forecast PBT is £16.1m, some £1m lower than achieved LY. However, the recently announced first half was £5m vs £9m last the second half requires a big reversal of achieve £11m v £8m last year. While the Interims in December suggested that the Board were "comfortable" with Brokers forecast...I think the City (and me!) seriously doubt that, and a profit warning at the end of Jan looks almost inevitable to me. A big miss on the Broker Forecast, followed by an outlook for 2017 which contains potential further margin erosion from currency headwinds, uncertain trading conditions, further competition from a developing Tappi, Minimum Wage increase. I am not sure I see it heading to 70p as suggested. It would still be profitable (albeit reduced), without much debt, and 70p would be significantly below Net Assets. However, for the reasons above, I am short on this.
lauders: The main news from yesterday is that it was not a profits warning, so there is a chance CPR will improve share-price wise from these levels. Those prepared to wait may do well, but it could well be a long wait and at the moment there are faster returns to be had elsewhere, so I wouldn't expect much action. I hope I am wrong. Http:// Back in June, the retailer warned Brexit would hit consumer confidence and analysts were somewhat relieved that this morning's trading statement did not come with a profit warning.
blondeamon: Share price on 18 year low
toffeeman: Don't worry - climate change means loads more floods so Carpetsh1te will get all the insurance work and the share price will react :)
lauders: The company specific text from that link: Carpetright has had a tougher time over the last year, as it focused on its more aggressive store closure programme - 27 stores were closed in the first half of the year. The group is trialling a new store concept in Clapham High Street, Reigate, Thurrock and Tunbridge Wells and, although there are pros and cons, all have performed well. Further roll-out should be detailed in the next results. The group has maintained its hold on a quarter of the market share but, as competition hots up, there will be opportunities to gain share from independents in the fragmented market. Deutsche Bank forecasts revenue of £466 million in the year to 30 April, with pre-tax profit of £17 million giving EPS of 18.36p. This puts the shares on a price/earnings multiple of 21 times at a share price of 392p. With a 525p representing 33% upside, analyst Warwick Okines says: "In our view valuation has now become attractive. The current enterprise value/sales ratio of 0.5x is virtually the lowest level on record, and yet we have increased confidence in margin expansion."
3rd eye: Meanwhile, shares in Carpetright (LSE: CRP) are up by around 7% today despite no significant news having been released by the company. Despite this rise, its shares are still down by 29% since the turn of the year, but over the medium term they could easily recover lost ground. A key reason for this is the company’s upbeat earnings forecasts. In the current financial year, Carpetright is expected to increase its bottom line by 23%, with further growth of 30% next year and 23% in the following year being pencilled in. This means that its net profit could be as much as 97% higher within the space of three years, which has the potential to act as a positive catalyst on its share price. And while there are uncertainties surrounding the performance of the UK and European economies, Carpetright’s price to earnings growth (PEG) ratio of 0.5 indicates that there is a sufficiently wide margin of safety on offer to merit purchase right now.
