walbrock82: From a historical perspective, NEXT has a lot of competitive advantages. These are: 1. Earning 20% in operating margins and has never fallen below 10% in 18 years. They beat BOOHOO and ASOS of which its margins are between 4% and 7%, respectively. And beat luxury retailer Burberry’s 17% margins. All three businesses have higher P/S and P/E numbers than NEXT! 2. Okay, I grant that ASOS and BOOHOO are growing faster, but regarding the PEG ratio, NEXT is lower on 0.61, compared with BOOHOO’s 0.93 and ASOS’s 5.04. 3. Don’t over worry about Debt to Equity of 300%+ because NEXT can pay off its debts in two years because free cash flow of circa. £450m would cover £900m of total debt in two years, provided NEXT can continue to produce those numbers! 4. NEXT PLC online division is earning 25% net margin helped by interest income fees from their credit card services, which accounts for 50% of online earnings and 33% of total group earnings. 5. NEXT PLC has done so much share buyback (bought back 65% of all total share issue since 1999) that a new share price low is equivalent to double that of its 2008’s share price low. 6. Unlike some businesses, NEXT has to deliver the goods to justify its valuation where the EPS doubled from £2.21/share in 2011 to £4.42/share in 2016. For the not so positive things about NEXT PLC. NEXT’s management is right to be realistic (whether this reflect an optimism or a pessimistic view), this relate to the rise in input costs of 5% or specifically £29m from A. National Living Wage; B. Energy taxes; C. Wage Inflation; D. Website improvements. Other adverse points of NEXT PLC are: 1. NEXT PLC’s consistently record NEGATIVE like-for-like sales but still manage to earn extraordinary operating margins. 2. This leads to the company’s retail division reporting declining revenue per SQ. Ft. from £1,000 to £650, while tripling in sizes. 3. Despite the large dividends give away, the company cash balance is under £70m, therefore NEXT need to churn out exceptional results year after year. Where are we now On a historical valuation basis, NEXT looks undervalue from the latest financial numbers. Future results for 2017 and especially 2018 will see if this market is right to justify today’s valuation. To read more of this analysis, the full post here: http://bit.ly/2ljTHtm

cluelessbugger: ganthorpe that is certainly my understanding which is very nice as that is more than I paid for the shares in the mid-90s. Although the trading statement says "We therefore intend to return surplus cash to shareholders by way of four quarterly special dividends of 45p each...this plan is subject to the outlook remaining in line with our forecast ranges and no significant changes to market conditions." If there is subsequently any suggestion that they might have to renege on that intention for whatever reason then the share price will, in my opinion, tank.

ganthorpe: I may be wrong , but I reckon that NEXT are planning to pay out 338P in divis over the next year if they maintain their regular Interim and Final Dividends at last year's level. Regular Final 105PJuly 2017 Reg Interim 53P Jan 2018 Specials $X45P=180P starting May 2017 then quarterly Total 338P - about 8.75% With their strong cash flow they should be able to afford it? That should support the present share price

careful: One of the business sections in the press discussed this. Apparently Wolfson had some complex criteria for buying back shares that are not now being met. Seems odd that he should buy back at the higher price and not now after a share price collapse. Instead he intends to return surplus cash to shareholders. Normally this would make NXT shares more attractive. But his statement and guidance was very gloomy. That is the problem I think. I have been in this game long enough to question his motives. What is he up to. The statement seemed designed to lower the share price.

lauders: If the share price descends to even lower levels will the dividend be safe? That is my main concern. I am looking for a good longer term dividend yield company and NXT seem to be fitting the bill at the moment. Surely management know that on-line is the way to go and will be reducing brick and mortar stores when/where possible? The recent trading statement included: In the light of the exceptional levels of uncertainty in the clothing sector and with little visibility of the approach the UK government will be taking to Brexit, we have reviewed our approach to the distribution of surplus cash. We believe that in these circumstances it makes sense to give some additional certainty to shareholders over cash distributions. We therefore intend to return surplus cash to shareholders by way of four quarterly special dividends of 45p each. This broadly represents the cash we would generate at the lower end of our guidance. We intend to pay the first special dividend at the beginning of May 2017. Of course, this plan is subject to the outlook remaining in line with our forecast ranges and no significant changes to market conditions. It looks like dividends and even the continuation of special dividends are set to continue unless things turn REALLY negative.

robbiereliable: How are people seeing these director buys? Do we think they are genuine belief that they will see a share price rise, or is it a token gesture to put confidence back in the share. I am potential buyer, but haven't done thorough research yet. My interest was caused by the apparent popularity of lipsy at the moment, of which my daughter says everyone is shopping in at the moment.

careful: Never understood why Wolfson bought back shares at the higher prices in the past. It supported the share price making it artificially high but is bad for the business. ... but if executive bonuses were linked to the share price then that is a possible explanation.

tlobs2: This is the second time he has issued a gloomy statements that has seen the share price plummet. Maybe he just likes being the hero when he turns it around ;-) That said for a 1% fall in turnover and similar profits to those previously predicted then the drop in share price is crazy.

careful: Wolfson seems to have the habit, in recent times, of issuing gloomy statements. Is he trying to massage the share price down to buy them back at a lower price? He is a smart operator.

tlobs2: It's a long term strategy ............. Talk down the performance of the company over a sustained period, offload a few thousand investors and watch the share price slump and then buy back and cancel their shares at a very low price. Start to feed back the feel good factor and watch the share price recover to it's original pre slump price plus about 25%. It's a long term spot of genius by the board of Next. Target long term selling price around £9 then and that after banking a few dividend payments ;-) IMVHO
