For those looking for a steady income on their retirement, Debenhams looks like an interesting bet. They have the following good attributes: -Been in business for over 200 years, so lots of experiences. -The current dividend yield is over 6%. -The company has been paying dividends for the past 5 years. -The reduction in total debt from £1.9bn to £330m makes the business unlikely to go bust. Also, debt to net earnings is less than 4 times with net interest cover close to 9 times. However, since it got relisted in 2006, Debenhams’s operating profits declined by 67%. The company lacks behind rivals in online sales. Also, incremental sales increase been below £50m for five years. For more read my article here: http://bit.ly/2mjTTdz

Waitrose was up near 7% last week but John Lewis sales overall down -0.2% HTTP://www.johnlewispartnership.co.uk/content/cws/financials/weekly-figures/latest.html Would Valentines day affect JL that much?

Quite a small spike the figures came out a surprise but reality kicking in. With business rates also going up it doesn't make good reading. Have moved my view to more downward predictions for Debenhams... "comment on that unexpected fall in retail sales: Consumer spending is now starting to weaken and this is bad news for the UK economy, which has been very resilient so far since June because consumer sentiment has been good. However most of this confidence, which helped send the UK to the top of the G7 for growth last year, was driven by high levels of consumer borrowing. Bank of England figures show a slowing in consumer debt between November and December and this is hitting retail sales. The trend shows spending peaked last autumn and is now sliding. Sales in January were down 0.3% from December, which in turn was 1.9% lower than November 2016. If consumer spending has hit a top, we may be in for a rough ride in 2017, especially retailers." Neil Wilson Senior market analyst, ETX Capital"

Retail sales figures out: BBC Live "Sterling sank 0.5% to $1.2414 following the surprise fall in retail sales in January - the third consecutive monthly decline.  December's downwardly revised 2.1% fall was the second-biggest monthly fall since comparable records began 20 years ago and adds to signs that consumers are beginning to suffer from higher inflation and fears over the economy ahead of Brexit. The pound also fell 0.3% against the euro at 85.73p."  "End of the good news Posted at 9:58 Ruth Gregory, UK economist at Capital Economics, says the retail sales figures has brought the recent run of resilient economic news to an abrupt end.  "The rest of the year is shaping up to be tough on the high street, given the expected squeeze on consumers’ real pay growth. Not only did the volume of retail sales drop by a monthly 0.3% (compared to the 0.9% pick-up expected), but the hefty fall in the previous month was revised from -1.9% to -2.1%. "This left the annual rate at 1.5%, down sharply from 4.3% in December. Indeed, very strong monthly rises, in excess of 2%, over the next two months would be required to prevent retail sales from dropping in the first quarter and dragging on GDP growth." .

Thanks Pillion I am just trying to keep a balanced view, I think there is risk on downside and short term share price will bounce about a bit either way. More visibility needed. edit: City AM view on JL and sector HTTP://www.cityam.com/259064/broken-hearted-sales-drop-john-lewis-week-before-valentines

John Lewis sales last week good, but down this week, same in Waitrose. JL blaming Valentine's day later but footfall and sales falling lately.. HTTP://www.johnlewispartnership.co.uk/content/cws/financials/weekly-figures/latest.html Motley F published a recent article, say sell good dividend shares which has included Debenhams, they cite earrings falling 12% this year 9% next. Looks like dividend could be at risk.

Had my once a year visit to the Oxford St store yesterday. The ground floor was heaving. Spoke to the girl at Dior who said she had been there two years and it was getting busier and busier though yesterday was exceptional.

And don't forget they have £50 million up their sleeve from some very clever currency insurance this year.

They are one of the biggest cosmetic sellers, and like boots that trade is usually unaffected by the ecomony. The clothing side is franchises so there overheads are few and far between. That leave houseware, which let's face it, if you buy it from Debenham you usually have more money than sense, but then HoF thrive on these people. It would be good if they owned more property but they were fleeced by private equity that sold it's property and re floated the stock a few years back. All that said they still deserve to be in the 60's on projected profits.

Off course. Not much on the balance sheet. But no denying DEB makes a load of cash in relation to its mcap, hence why I hold.

fair point but less than 1/10th of those 'intangible' assets

£86m after tax hardly a tiny profit for a company valued at £675m

The problem I have with Debenhams is that it is basically worthless. Take the 962m of intangibles out of the balance sheet (794m stated as Goodwill!) and you have a company with a total deficit if 78m. A current deficit of 185m The slightest knock could wipe out that tiny profit and take the company out of business. We know what Goodwill is worth in a damaged company - just look at Woolies etc. There is a reason that 6.2% divi looks attractive. Maybe worth trading but to hold them? erm no.
