cisk: I just did a quick comparison on HEAD v VCP on stockopedia. On virtually every measure HEAD came out best - indeed the growth of Victoria's share price is astounding and it now looks very expensive. Headlam, on the other hand, still looks cheap given the resilience of their earnings, and as others have mentioned, the cash generative abilities of the company, not to mention the cash at bank. I think their balance sheet is very conservative - just the kind I like! I added a few more after the excellent results last week, and will look to add more on any weakness.
battlebus2: Having a look at this one, some interesting factors that could lift the share price, they are already trading on a cheap forward p/e so should continue to climb but with a trading update in a few weeks we may see more positive trading as they already said the first few weeks are 3.3% higher. There's also the added bonus that they MAY meet the criteria to enter the ftse small cap index. If so a lot of trackers will buy and push the price up and if not we still have a solid business with improving trading and a reasonable to low valuation. Top of my watchlist ATM and waiting to time an entry point, also good to see some familiar names on the board Woodcutter and Exbroker. Anyone thoughts appreciated?
networker: Another positive and encouraging set of results from HEAD. They don't have the trading surprises of many companies and continue to be consistent and reliable performers. Not sure that the share price can move out of the trading band of 500-525p in which it has been sitting for quite a while. Perhaps press comment tomorrow will enliven things.
networker: I see that today HEAD officially found its way back into the FTE 350. Presumably this accounts for the share price shenanigans of the the last 3 weeks.......
colms: this from the interim results when the share price was 390p. share price now up to 437p looks as if the market is confident about something. Outlook Our businesses in the UK and Continental Europe have all contributed to an encouraging first six months. With the benefit of this, combined with a constant focus on our suppliers, products, customers and service, we look forward to the traditional busy autumn trading period and remain confident of achieving the group's operating objectives for the year. TG Larman, Chairman 9 August 2004 final results to be announced in march if similar to last year. HEAD being illiquid, it will probably drop back before then but I am looking for overall steady rise.
networker: Am I alone in thinking these are good and encouraging figures and statement? They should give support to the share price, even in an overall dodgy market. The shares are currently range-bound in the 375-400p bracket and reluctant to move.
cockneyrebel: Have you looked at Victoria Carpets (VCP) ? 70% compound earnings growth PA over the last two years come the results June 22 At these results VCP will post earnings nearly double that of HEAD. After these results you'll see the forecast earniings nearly double that of HEAD. You'll see a yield nearly the same as HEAD. Where HEAD trades at more than 3 times NAV, Victoria trades at NAV approx. But the share price half that of HEAD. CR
jeffian: Impressive AGM statement today. Maybe the strength of the share price recently is just refelecting 'fundamentals'. "20 May 2004 HEADLAM GROUP PLC AGM STATEMENT At its Annual General Meeting today, Trevor Larman, Chairman of Headlam Group, stated that sales in the first 20 weeks of 2004 against the corresponding period last year, have increased by 12% on a like for like basis. This sales performance reflects an increasing sales trend across all geographical regions in the UK, a year on year improvement in sales of all product categories and the businesses which we acquired during 2002 performing ahead of expectations. Our operations in Continental Europe continue to show an improving trend. With this positive performance, the group looks forward to another year of growth in profitability". Regards, Ian
jeffian: Networker, I think your final sentence just about says it all. The good news is that the Eclipse fiasco has now washed out of the system and we can clearly see the benefit of the core business, wholesale carpet and flooring distribution, which has trundled along growing satisfactorily for years but was disguised in the overall picture by the losses and write-offs following the ill-fated Eclipse blinds and window-coverings acquisitions. A textbook example to managements to stick to what you know and don't get tempted into headline-seeking acquisitions in areas you don't fully understand (Hello, Lord Simpson of Marconi, are you listening?!). Good basic EPS and divi growth suit me fine and if this is achieved over the long term, the share price will follow as night follows day. Regards, Ian
codoctor: Good results from this company are always followed by selling and my experience of it is that the share price will remain weak for a couple of months and then start to pick up again. They are now exclusively a carpet distributor having recently got rid of their last remaining fabric companies. All the write offs are out of the way and the rather grandiose expansion plans of the Ian Kirkham era which used to scare the pants off the fund managers are long gone. Tony Brewer the CEO knows the business inside out and has his feet firmly on the ground. I got in at around £1.50 in early 2001 and have stayed there. I think they will be bought out when there is a general improvement in the economy and wouldn't be surprised to see a price north of £3.50. codoctor
