|Since the start of the year CRAW have posted up 6 offers (ie adverts) on their facebook profile. There appear to be instances in which the same person has 'liked' more than one of the offers; ie not too sure how much can be interpreted by the same.
However, in addition to the 'likes', there have also been 'shares' and 'comments'; the latter, for example, being one user just 'messaging' another, or others, to flag up a specific offer.
The numbers are certainly not mind blowing but are slowly gathering a bit of momentum:
2 Jan 2017; 12 likes / 1 share
4 Jan 2017; 16 likes / 1 share / 2 comments (ie by separate / individual posters).
6 Jan 2017; 43 likes / 20 shares / 14 comments.
8 Jan 2017; 28 likes / 13 shares / 5 comments.
11 Jan 2017; 19 likes / 2 shares / 11 comments.
11 Jan 2017(II); 27 likes / 2 shares / 7 comments.
13 Jan 2017; 32 likes / 12 shares / 7 comments
Within the next 7-10 days there will be 10,500 users 'following' CRAW; ie who will each be notified when a new offer is posted. Simple logic suggests that this figure will escalate as more 'follow'.
If management do not fupp up again, there might just be something in your post above forsh re:
"A unique and powerful quality value retail concept with clear competitive advantages
Concept has UK Scalability and potential to be a National Brand
A proven concept where all stores are profitable and non seasonal profit dependent(??)
New stores are profitable from day one and reach sales/profit maturity end of year 2
Cash generative business, working capital benefits and short payback on investment
No direct or comparable competition effectively operating in our own market"|
|Yep. Looks wrong doesn't it mcmather. Looked on web-site and this concurs that on 26/08/16 Schroders held 7.09m. No doubting that Threads have gone over 5.8% from an undeclarable (if any at all?) previously though. But again, one wonders why ?|
|Re Schroders, the previous notification was 30 Nov 2015 / 7,090,000 shares then nowt till 19 Dec 2016 when declaring above 10% / 8,156,150 shares but from 4,028,150(?) shares.|
|Whatever happened to Davidosh. He has not posted since the poor trading statement. This is one of his tips for 2017 but its not looking so good now.|
Schroders are activist Investors in the main, so they could be in for lots of reasons.|
|Morrisons reporting best Christmas trading in 7 years with LFL 2.9% increase. This tells me the one-stop supermarket shop has been fighting back strongly.|
|I will be wearing my “Bring Back KB” T-shirt at the annual AGM|
|Would also assume KB will be selling his shares without much to show for all his hard work over the years and somehow I don't think RR will be the buyer :-)|
|So what was all the volume about ahead of the announcement I wonder, and why have Schroders been throwing more of their money at CRAW, effectively doubling their stake (excuse the pun)? Looks dead in the water to me.|
|Big dump going on.|
|Some coverage of the TS:
Should you buy Crawshaw Group plc over Cranswick plc?
A confident update wasn't enough to reassure investors in Crawshaw. Shares in the sausage maker halved back in September after it warned of a slip in sales, blaming Brexit and the Euro 2016 football finals for lower footfall.
|Re the company's recent social media programme; the most recent posting on facebook has generated 11 comments in 24 hours. Not massive, and some also having a pop, but some of those posting have copied in others and the number of 'likes' and those 'following' on facebook appears to be on the increase as a result.
It aint rocket science; folk just want decent food at a decent price and I reckon if Crawhaws can consistently deliver this, they will have more customers.
|Interesting piece here from yesterday re Mountain Warehouse - obviously different market to Crawshaws - and their view of the of the high street, how they appear to be targeting the "value" but "functional" end of the market, etc:
|Seriously R.R can turn on a sixpence and wouldn't be surprised to see the big man back...|
|I'm very upset K.B has gone but hope he will join me at this years AGM and I'll bring the tomato if he brings the eggs..|
|Peel hunt target 60p which = appx 60mill market value crazy,which should mean 6 mill profit and 10x earning.they can't produce 1mill let along 6.and Kevin leaving is a massive loss rest haven't got a clue as we will find out.|
|Consistent! Peel Hunt Buy 23.25 60.00 60.00 Reiterates|
|LFL sales for Feb 2016 to May 2016 ranged between -0.1% to -1.5%.
LFL were then:
June 2016 -9.9%
July 2016 -11.8%
First 7 weeks H2 2017 (Aug / Sept 2016) -15.8%
LFL for the 5 weeks ended 1 January 2017 were -3.8%; ie a 12% improvement in (edit) 14/15 weeks.
It is only for the last 3 weeks or so that the company have started to engage with customers via social media on a regular and sensible level - ie just highlighting their offerings - and this appears to be having an effect.
The company had something going 18-6 months ago, the management then fupped things up but now appear to be getting back on track; "the Board remain confident in achieving full year market expectations".
It's obviously going to be challenging but the recent turnaround, the engagement with customers via social media and the planned 'marketing activity' - hmmm - provide optimism. Details of their strategy around new store openings will no doubt help though.|
|Found it the forecasts.
A million loss this year about to end.
0.75 million loss following year.
Now the store opening has slowed and lfl are going into reverse this is not going to make a profit anytime soon.

Out of town should do fine, its a destination store.
Thing is, footfall was down everywhere over Christmas, and projections are that 2017 will be harder than 2016. (Next now forecasts a significant profit fall next year.) Shopping centre footfall was down more than high streets over Christmas. It could be weather, internet, economic slowdown or other factors. You would think internet was the biggest issue yet it looks like the US has been hit hard by a similar trend when it has different weather, half the online sales share of the UK (8%+ versus nearly 16%), and does not have high streets like ours. So what is going on? Nobody seems quite sure yet. Discounters Costco and B&M reported good figures so are shoppers moving downmarket as well? I think the economy is beginning to slow on top of the online issues and councils responding badly to changing habits but I seem to be in a minority on that one.|
|Sounds to me like the old CEO has been muttering about all the new stuff that new bod is up to not working and has therefore got the heave ho. Methinks they might have got rid of the wrong one !
Still, could have been a worse update, and notable for lack of excuses.|
|The high street stores seem to attract folk who are buying that night's or tomorrow night's tea and who are already in town for one reason or another. They just need to ensure a consistent offering quality / price wise and loyalty, customer numbers and revenue should increase.
Some of the remaining concerns for me relate to the bizarre social media campaign in late spring / early summer and whoever authorised declaring that reduced footfall was attributable to brexit and the euros in france! That last one just smacks of someone who is a bit clueless.|
