|The growth in services has been their strong point for some time and I guess this will continue, but the drop is similar to that after the last decent update and I guess someone has a downer on it. So bought some back in.|
|Deadly - is todays drop due to concern over the impact supermarkets are having on Merchandise sales ? Other parts of Pets looks good eg VETs and grooming.|
|It was ranging up there for a while, probably more a safe profit take. I think it'll sneak its way back up to 235|
|TS looks good to me, what am I missing? Down 7% so far|
|Great engulfing candle on the charts all .. looked good to me|
|Sold some at 237p after the recent rise from 212p ish.|
|198k buy at the end of the day..|
|SELL THIS: Pets at Home
Liberum has posted a ‘sell’ rating for the pet retailer, whose half-year update disappointed investors last week despite a 9.1 per cent revenue rise.
The broker said a quarter-on-quarter slowdown showed there were challenges in the merchandise division and warned the outlook statement from the group was cautious.
Analysts noted that the firm had not promised an end to earnings downgrades.

|Morti1 - to be on the register at the close of Dec 2nd you have to be holding shares as of the close last night. If you bought yesterday you get the divi, if you buy today you don't. Hence it opens today as ex-div. Hope that helps.|
|"On 22 November 2016 the Directors declared an interim dividend of 2.5 pence per share, amounting to GBP12.5 million, which is payable on 6 January 2017 to ordinary shareholders on the register at the close of business on 2 December 2016". (Information from the company report).
I am reading elsewhere that the company went ex-div today 01/12/2016. Is the actual date the 2nd? Not sure and slightly confused. Could someone please clarify.|
|Daily mail article over the weekend had these shares as a sell too. Am down a few quid now on these myself. Can make my mind up whether to just leave them be and hope they recover at some point or top up now to bring my weighted average right down.|
|Pets at Home PLC (LON:PETS) shares are an even bigger bargain after the adverse reaction to this morning's interims, according to Panmure Gordon.The retailer is "dominant, defensive and highly cash generative", according to the City firm, which has a 271p price target for the stock - which is well above the current price of 215p, down 8% on the day.The market took fright at slowing like-for-like sales growth in the first half of the financial year and an insipid start to the second half, but Panmure likes the retailer's strong cash flow, which it thinks could be enough to warrant some special dividends if the company cannot find any acquisition opportunities to soak up the cash."Our cash flow analysis shows Pets at Home's intrinsic worth to circa £1.5bn; this equates to a value of 271p per share. This implies that the shares are currently trading at a circa 19% discount to their fundamental worth," the broker said.George Salmon, an equity analyst at Hargreaves Lansdown, sounds a note of caution, however, about the threat from online retailers."Pets at Home is both slicker and larger than its independent rivals, so is able to roll-out stores and services and hoover up business; however, the danger is that its competition is no longer the dingy high street pet store. Online retailers like Amazon can save customers the trouble of a trip to a retail park, and often offer lower prices," Salmon said."The group still clearly has some attractive characteristics. Strong cash generation and a steady roll-out story mean that there is plenty to go for, but the slowing sales trends are a concern," Salmon concluded.|
|There's a write up in the motley fool for whatever thats worth|
|Bit of an over reaction? A lot of updates seem to be hitting toward weakness in the next FY|
|Couldn't see many negatives in today's results. The downward blip gave another buying opportunity.|
|Apologies - 24/11|
|Half year earning this back end of this month 28/11|
|Mmm is 210 resistance?|
|Norges Bank accumulating....|
|Taken a small stake today.
Been in a falling channel for about a year and now looks like decent value.
Clearly like most retailers they are going to suffer from the drop in £ but equally they are building the services side, grooming/vet which should have more stable costs.|
|Exactly - I topped up yesterday!|
|Seemed rude not to top up at this price!|
|Looks oversold now|
