|garrei: after the dairycrest washout due to supermarket power it appears geest/northern foods et al are in for a dose of the same, though in their case the ramifications are even greater as their typical portfolio of products starts off with a net higher margin than dairycrests milk biz did, therefore impact on profitability even greater
working in the food industry i hear the rattle amongst the retail buyers but have seen no concrete evidence of any chilled sector target specifically, apart from the usual constant nut crunch(that is suppliers getting theirs crunched!)
anybody got more specific info? As the chilled dairy category is getting hit at the moment i can only believe that those retail buyers will turn their attention to maybe cheese/yoghurts/cream/?........any thoughts?
geests share price for instance appears to be breaking down from a long term double top and was wondering if their garlic baguette or salads biz was maybe in for a hammering? v.large profit margins in prepared salads especially|
|angora7: Bought in a few days ago at 443 on Fundamentals. Does anyone know the cause of the big share price drop last nov/dec?|
|keepgoing: I got in a couple of weeks ago at £3.88 after keeping an eye on them for a long time.
I really believe that these are totally undervalued. They had an uncharacteristically poor year last year and now the historic PE is just over 10.
They're likely to have a far better year this time (not just because of weather, but because of new facilities that have been brought on board) and by resuming their growth phase there will be a re-rating of the share price.
I'd rather hold on for the real gains than surrender to an opportunistic takeover bid.|
|pugugly: rns today imo indicates now ex largely growth (in profits). The current UK supermarket consolidation will imo put even more pressure on margins. Anyone any idea on a share price now - Jan refs is showing a forward per of 9.72 but against a 2003 estimate of 45.5m -v- 2001 and 2002 of 41.1m.|
|chris jones: Who ever said that should make it "quote of the week" - I particularly like the use of the word 'entirely'...
Personally, I pay a great deal of attention to the charts but also take into account market sentiment, recent news and/or anticipated news which can, on occassions, send a chart in an unexpected, and often costly, direction. I believe a chart can help to predict a share price movement but historical movement does not guarantee the future direction all the time.
With GET, I've stated the chart "indicates"... and the "watching closely" signifies it might not happen.
Perhaps the above quote on the JUS fbb was in response to someone who with complete certainty predicted a future share price based solely on the chart. If only it were that easy.
I hope this helps get the comments into context. My mind has always been 'made up'!
|dil: Chris : Someone told me on the Just fbb thread yesterday that .......
"The charts are not an entirely accurate way of predicting share price movements otherwise we'd all be multi - millionaires. "
Hmmmmm ..... wish he would make his bloody mind up :-)
