|srpactive: Yes share price not so nice I agree, although I have been
buying some more whilst down here. It is a strange industry
this if the share price was 30p investors would be more confident
and would be happy to buy, but at 15p the opposite.
|nigelmoat: Nice dividend received here today but share price not so nice! Living in everlasting hope of a takeover at a premium value.|
|rcturner2: Value trap, as I said and as many others said. A high yield with a falling share price is never a good sign.|
|simon templar qc: 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.|
|valhamos: "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.|
|srpactive: 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.
|barnesian: Gostevie: I think the article at hTTp://www.directorstalkinterviews.com/laura-ashley-holdings-plc-36-4-potential-upside-indicated-cantor-fitzgerald/412708226 has been written by a robot!
The giveaway is the sentence "Over the last 30 and 90 trading days the company share price has increased 0.299999999999997 points and decreased 2.75 points respectively."
It is a mechanical derivation. It gives no explanation at all of why Cantor Fitzgerald has set a target price of 30p.
Thorpmatt: I suspect larger IIs will also have difficulty with the "like for like" comparisons unless they have inside information from the company.
Incidentally I suspect ALY is seasonable as the fashion stock is summer wear with no coats etc. The peak will be Spring/ early summer. The latest 17 month period had two peak seasons in it. The previous 17 month period had only one.|
|barnesian: JW You make an excellent point. It is tempting to think that it is company specific events that are driving the price when it is actually changing sentiment about retailing in general.
ALY price has come down by 27% over the last 12 months.
M&S price has come down by 42%
Halfords price has come down by 38%
But WH Smith price is up by 3% (something specific to WH Smith?)
The FTSE 350 Retailing Index is down 22% over the last 12 months.
ALY is in the middle of the pack.|
|jimmywilson612: I disagree Carcosa - I think it matches the funamentals and shows how tough retail is at the moment.
If you simply compare the PE to other retailers:
ALY: PE 10
MKS: PE 9
BON: PE 6.8
NXT: PE 11
SCS: PE 11
Therefore I dont see if necessarily as a decline in ALY share price, but a decline in the over view of the retail sector.|
|srpactive: imho the way aly share price is being kept at this
level with all the good and takeover retail news leads
me to think a bid will come sooner rather than latter.
For example the share price for charting purposes etc
is showing 25p, when the bid is 26p and the offer 26.5p.
