Feels a bit later than usual.|
|Argos update helping here.|
|and look at the surprising resilience of Ao. It is a rather confusing picture.|
|Until they prove otherwise they will be!|
|Lucky that Deutsche bank note was positive. Hate to think what the share price would have done if negative. All retailers being tarred with the same brush. Dc. are not Next !|
|DC. won't be alone in having to pass on the effects of sterling weakness.
IMO a nod's as good as a wink between retailers anyway, but
Chart interesting for LTHs.
GLA & HNY!|
Negative on retail generally.
Positive on Dixons.|

Terrific start to the two day boxing day this year. Have fun today and thank you for all the hard work...
Other reports say overall retail traffic down.|
|Can you imagine what would have happened if the results had been poor or even average!
In fairness he has prepared the market for the possibility of more challenging times ahead.
If correct next time he could then say something like "as we mentioned in our last update we were concerned about the outlook and this proved correct...."
He knows that nothing hits shares like an update that is below expectations and this may cause the city to be cautious about their profit forecasts.|
|All they said was things might get tougher and they are preparing for that eventuality. Hardly a revelation in the current environment.|
|Be careful gave a very cautious outlook, looking for 3.18 entry price|
|Just topped up, under the circumstances it seems like a good move, regardless of the results they always were good value around this price.|
|Then why say it. Its not the first time he has done this|
|apparently the forward looking statement is what spooked the market but really what else are they going to say!
I am not in but tempted by the large fall this morning.|
|Surely that's a statement of the obvious.|
Might be this line they don't like.
"we have been planning for the possibility of more uncertain times ahead"|

|Me too, but Dc. has a habit of doing this on results day. Not sure if its traders trying to shake weak hands and will recover later or they feel the good news is over and now to price in the uncertain future...|
|Thought the results were strong, rather surprised by the initial reaction.|
|Excellent interim results.
LONDON (Alliance News) - Dixons Carphone PLC on Wednesday reported growth in profit in the first half of its financial year, as revenue grew across all divisions and it reiterated that it has not seen any lack in consumer demand following the UK's vote to leave the European Union.
The mobile phone and electronics retailer said pretax profit in the 26 weeks ended October 29 grew to GBP104 million from GBP78 million the year before, as revenue rose to GBP4.87 billion from GBP4.39 billion and like-for-like sales increased by 4%.
Geographically, revenue rose by 4% in the UK & Ireland, by 23% in the Nordics and by 20% in Southern Europe.
Dixons Carphone said its sterling results were boosted by the weakening of the pound against the euro and Norwegian krone following the UK's vote to leave the EU, with a strong performance from mobile phones, white goods and consumer electronics, offsetting decreased revenue in computing.
Dixons Carphone will pay an interim dividend of 3.5 pence, which is an 8% increase year-on-year.
"Looking forward, we remain optimistic about our ability to continue to gain market share in all our key markets, and, while we have still not seen any effect on consumer demand as a consequence of Brexit, we have been planning for the possibility of more uncertain times ahead," Chief Executive Seb James said in a statement.
"We are also planning our offer so that potential currency impacts are minimised for the customer, and are ensuring that next year, as always, everybody can be absolutely sure that they won't get a better deal anywhere else," he added.|
