edmundshaw: Debenhams boost from long forex forward hedging should help them this year compared to JL and others with a shorter hedging policy. I have no great opinion about whose shops the customers prefer at the moment, but I feel the (albeit slow) improvement in online sales, the balanced sales across the age groups and a good reputation should keep Debs trading OK. Worth repeating Xmas period trading?: Financial Highlights · Group gross transaction value +3.7%; Group like-for-like sales as reported +3.5% · Group like-for-like sales in constant currency +0.5%, including UK LFL +1.0% · Online sales +13.9%, with two year growth of over 25% · Gross margin of (25bps) to +25bps, sales mix continues to be dilutive · Good performance in the 7 week Christmas period to 7th January: - LFL sales +5.0%, +1.7% in constant currency - Online sales +17.0% Last year, Underlying EPS was 7.5p. Following good cash generation, net debt reduced by £40.8m to £279m. Net debt/EBITDA at 1.2x. Full year dividend up to 3.425p per share (so yield at 54p is 6.3%, covered 2.2 times. Don't see any reason to sell at these levels. Recovery represents good upside with a nice income while waiting, while downside seems limited at a PER of 7.2 which is pricing in some serious drops in performance already. A well-reasoned argument as to why earnings might fall off a cliff and the share price with them should fall further would be of interest. (Chart-based magic numbers do not count.)
simon templar qc: tintin I cannot rule out Debenhams would be taken out but its unlikely with the leases. I suppose a take out would be one reason for the static share price albeit the trend is down. Its a late Easter this year so no news soon. Could be more downgrades in May.
walbrock82: Simon, I agreed with you up to a certain point, which is why I gave a share price guidance for DEBENHAMS between 35p/share to 65p/share. I also acknowledged DEB been VERY SLOW in developing their online division (15% of T. SALES), which would eat into its cash flow. But, DEB cash earnings have held up well (been consistently the same for ten years), until cash earnings drop like a stone, then dividends won't get cut.
edmundshaw: Yup, sometimes the price goes up-diddly-up-up, and sometimes it goes down-diddly-own-down... a bit like a share price on the stock market...
pillion: We got this surprise January 2016
ckafetz: How does such a big buy not affect the share price?
ckafetz: With this share going ex div early December and the large div compared to share price does this normally lead to a rally in share price leading up to the ex div date?
sr2day: share price manipulation to buy as cheap as possible for whoever wants to bid.
simon templar qc: Results out initial observations: Highlights... Financial headlines -- Gross transaction value up 1.3% to GBP2,860.1m -- Group like-for-like sales up 2.1% in constant currency, up 0.6% as reported -- Group gross margin rate maintained, with 90bps markdown improvement on last year -- Operating profit up 4.3% to GBP134.1m reflecting good cost control -- Profit before tax in line with market expectations, up 7.3% to GBP113.5m (2014: GBP105.8m(1) ) -- Basic EPS up 7.0% to 7.6p (2014: 7.1p) -- Final dividend of 2.4p per share; maintaining full year dividend of 3.4p per share -- Following strong cash generation, net debt reduced by GBP41.7m to GBP319.8m -- Current net debt/EBITDA 1.3x (2014: 1.6x), medium term leverage target improved to 0.5x from previous target of 1.0x Debenhams met market expectations but nothing sparkling. Profit up 7.3% EPS up about 7% which is showing growth faster .Sales growth poor in my opinion. Margins steady. Dividend flat. They intend to rebase dividend cover. Debt down £40+ million down, nothing there overall concerning. The company state they have had a good start to the year but, its too early imo to draw any conclusions to key Christmas period. So overall what do I think? With the global economy weakening Debenhams is still at risk. Part the strategy on less sales per year seems to be working but sales growth poor. Debenhmams has had a fair run lately share price strengthening the share price a discount to sector however the company is still at risk with a weakening global economy. I see no large upside to the share price at the moment, if anything the share price could weaken. CEO to go! That suggests to me his is going while things are just about OK which will give him a nice golden handshake. Have seen this before CEO goes and things weaken later on! A long line of management changes in retail sector the last one at John Lewis. Argos gave a profit warning very recently! So there we are folks nothing sparkling and nothing overly worrying my overall take is share price could weaken I would be likely to take profits at the current price if I held, which I don't as the company is still at risk of further downside at the moment.
isis: Sports Direct now owns 11 per cent of Debenhams Tweet Share Share Share SHARES 14 by Catherine Neilan October 2, 2014, 7:20pm Mike Ashley Mike Ashley: Majority owner of Sports Direct has increased its investment in Debenhams to 11 per cent (Source: Getty) Sports Direct has just upped its exposure to underperforming department store chain Debenhams, buying a further £33m-worth of shares. The move comes months after the Mike Ashley-owned retailer took its original punt on the high street business, which was ultimately converted into a put option valued at £64m. The new investment equates to a 4.6 per cent stake, meaning Sports Direct now owns 11.22 per cent of Debenhams. “As previously announced, Sports Direct is already working together with Debenhams and looks forward to building this relationship,” a company statement said. This is the second time in a week Ashley has invested in an ailing retailer, after he took a punt on scandal-struck supermarket Tesco last Thursday. He also owns around 11 per cent in House of Fraser, the remainder of which is now owned by Chinese group Nanjing Xinjiekou. But we wonder whether investors will applaud the move, given that so far his investments have not paid off and in fact have sustained a loss. When Sports Direct took out the option in Debenhams back on January 16, the department store’s share price was 82p per share. Fast forward to today and it’s now 60p a share. That’s a 27 per cent drop. Obviously to look at Tesco is to give a very short timeframe on an investment that he says is for the long-term, but in that time it has fallen from 195p to 178p - a decline of 8.7 per cent. Out of interest, Sports Direct International’s share price has gone from 735p when it took the stake in Debenhams to 608p today, falling just over 17 per cent, despite some pretty strong performance from the retail business.
