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. http://www.fool.co.uk/investing/2016/03/14/should-you-buy-todays-3-big-gainers-gw-pharmaceuticals-plc-carpetright-plc-and-the-kellan-group-plc/#

cockneyrebel: Well you'll just have to see what happens at the interims, not long to wait, just 3 weeks. Walsh has said he's going to update regarding the leases at the interims. The shares are trading at around the lowest levels of the last 10 year. They have no net debt, earnings are growing at strong double digits and there's a good chance the divi gets restored before too long. If you're right Toffeeman then you best give an email to Neptune Investments who have recently bought 19% at way higher than the current share price. They obviously spend far less time researching CPR than you have done Toffeeman. Of course I and they may be wrong, you make your own decisions when investing. I'm not here to convince you, I'm here to get you to think and make my case as to why I think they are potentially a great investment. Time will tell. For the last 10 years that these have drifted you've had Lord Harris with his tired old views of a market that has changed. He's had no plan other than go with what has worked in the past. At least with Walsh you have a man with a plan. He's only been in place 15 months and you rarely see tangible effects from a new board until a year to 18 months imo. He's been faster than most imo.

toffeeman: Nah - you gotta have shops to sell floor coverings whether you rent em or own them. Why should revenue rise significantly - it's a very competitive market, so say revenues rise optimistically by 5% (LfL) the only way you get real earnings growth is through better margins, which means paying less to suppliers. Say they can improve margins by 5% Where do you get the huge EPS uplift? LAst EPS was 13.7p Even if you believe a forward eps of 25p for 2017 that's still a p/e of 20 at a £5 share price. It does not compute CR - unless you can demonstrate otherwise

modform: For GMT to reduce its short position by o.7% and no change to the share price, there must be a consistent seller otherwise the share price would rocket with such an illiquid share.Glad I have been topping up on weaknesses, this will be another GRG. I reckon 20% markup by mm on Monday.

simon gordon: Came across this when reading Ennismore's January newsletter: Carpetright PLC – UK carpet retailer (-0.5% NAV) – Short Carpetright is a European carpet retailer with a market cap of GBP 290m. In its April 2014 financial year, it generated sales of GBP 447m and an underlying operating profit of GBP 7m, with 84% of its sales coming from the UK and the rest coming from the Netherlands, Belgium and Ireland. At the end of October 2014, it had no net debt but lease commitments of around GBP 700m. We believe the business is structurally challenged due to its huge shop size (average size per store is over 9k square feet) and uneconomic leases. The demand for carpets has declined significantly in its markets due to people’s tastes shifting away from carpeted rooms since the mid-2000s and the cyclical reduction in housing transactions since 2007. From the peak in 2007, Carpetright believes the UK market has declined by 30% (although, interestingly, the distributor Headlam Group PLC believes the decline to be only 20%). As the biggest UK carpet retailer with a 25% market share, Carpetright does benefit from buying power and from having a larger range than its competitors. However, we believe this is more than offset by problems with its estate, with many of its stores currently loss-making. Although Carpetright is gradually reducing its store size and closing some of its stores, its long leases make this a slow process. The majority of its leases, signed in very different market conditions a decade ago, don’t expire for another five years. Moreover, its huge range only benefits a minority of customers – over 70% of carpets sold are some form of beige – and much of their independent competition is owner-managed with smaller stores and no central corporate costs. We think the fact that Carpetright’s operating profits peaked ten years ago is very telling of the overall problems it has and wonder whether it will have to go through a major restructuring to be better suited to the new market dynamics. 2014 was a good year for consumer facing and home improvement companies in the UK, helped by a strong housing market. However, Carpetright still only managed to attain an operating margin of less than four percent in the UK (and zero in Europe) in its first half results, despite over six percent like-for-like sales growth! This indicates how competitive and commoditised their market is currently. 2015 could also be more difficult due to election and house price uncertainty. We have held a short position in the stock since 2011 and felt the share price seemed to defy gravity, probably because investors hoped the founder Lord Harris would try to take it private as he had attempted to do in 2007 for 1250p (GBP 850m). Things have obviously changed this year: he has relinquished his involvement in the company and sold down his holding, with the most recent sales at around the 320p level, which compares to the current share price of 433p. We are very comfortable to follow his lead and stay short, with the company trading on around 30 times our estimate for its operating profit, after tax, for the year to April 2015.
