|You can draw this in a few different ways but none of them are very encouraging
|Value trap, as I said and as many others said. A high yield with a falling share price is never a good sign.|
|Too much completion, slowdown in UK, Chinese owned no one believes growth figures in China, property overpriced all around the world do not make a good mix.
Dividend halved and future now yield now at risk. The problem with high yields the minute the dividend goes so does the share price.|

An approach from these would do.
Amazon on the brink of launching own UK fashion label|
|I sold out on these results, 100% right NIGELMOAT.
The UKs tough with more pain to come but the failure here is the inability to offset with far east growth despite the Asian ownership
Stock really isn't covered in the City so fall in share price quite benign IMO|
|Sorry posted on wrong thread|
|Shabby results. Company run as a Family fiefdom from past era. Great shame as name retains worldwide good brand image amongst broad range of shoppers. Unfortunately held for many years primarily for dividend but at expense of capital depreciation. Best hope is that controlling interests throw in the towel and some sort of sale/buy out results.|
|Strange to me that they spent so many millions on some fancy HQ. I had got rid of many of my holdings (for sister + nephew), but was still holding some in wife's name, unfortunately.|
|I offloaded a few recently as the shareprice remained in the doldrums, whilst the markets overall were rallying hard. Shareprice charts do "tell a story"
Will hang on to the rest in the hope of some recovery|
|Don't get people selling when update is on the 27th Feb.|
|I have to agree about the Singapore purchase, but it is
in the right place to appreciate in value I would have thought.
|All been downhill since that dodgy unnecessary property transaction in Singapore - couldn't trust them after that. Stopped me from buying in.
More weakness to come imo.|
|"The Board have reviewed the first half results and forecasts for the remainder of the year to 30(th) June 2017 and, given the continued market challenges, feels that net pre-tax profit for the year will fall below market expectations."
|Sold mine a couple of minutes ago, a beaker bad buy :(
Cue them probably getting taken over or recovering sales now I sold|
|"1p dividend on 17p share price is very good actually."
And it will look even better if the share price falls to 10p!
The dividend was one of the attractions here and the recent communications from this company does not convey the impression that they know what they are doing in terms of getting a grip on loss of profitability.|
|As far as I see it, the city has been expecting this and
are not too happy with board, 1p dividend on 17p share
price is very good actually. I have to admit I was hoping
for better results.
|Could be the low point however there is plenty of potential with the launch of new product range, launch into China and India. The business remains profitable and dividend paying. It will be interesting to see how things progress over the next 6 months.dyor,coxsmn|
|Not at all good. Dividend halved and would not surprise me if it gets cut again. Been on my monitor but wary. Bound to fall badly.|

Laura Ashley first half results are poor + issues full year profit warning.
Dividend halved vs a year ago.
Pre-tax profit down 29%.|
|Mixed bag again, continued dividend as last payment.
Presence set up in China and India is good, second half
better as expected.
City expecting no improvement and that is what has been delivered.
|150000 buy at 19p, interesting.
|A positive statement with evidence of further growth in revenue and profit will Li might move this higher. With an 'ok' or bad set of results (challenging Q4, reduced or no growth, etc.) will likely send this down again. I was encouraged to see limited reaction to the news that Homebase cutting its deal with Laura Ashley, hopefully this implies investors are patient and viewing this as a growth/recovery stock.|
