|shorting PETS and NCC are you opodio?|
|profit warning coming again|
|In my opinion the share price has taken that much of a hit purely due to big short positions. I think the update wasn't quite as good as they hoped so a huge opportunity to short and scare to sell. It kept moving, slowly lower as more and more short positions were taken up. I'd agree that the chat does seem to have bottomed, but as if yet I'm more interested to watch what the big shorts do, if they reduce their positions I'll take this as confirmation, nothing else. I'm watching NCC and CLLN both have big shorts on them (CLLN 24%!!), so just watching how these games are played with them and PETS, and try build up a picture as to when they are happy with covering their positions, as I imagine once they do, they do it fast, the share price might be like a catapult.|
|Hard to explain why the share price has fallen so much.|
|Pets chart looks as if it's bottomed Divi ok Profits ok any info anyOne|
|Me to Salpara|
|Whats going on with these US hedge funds, we are being invaded can't move for LLC hedgies.|
|PETS board room conversation "so all we need do is buy some shares, it'll flag up to all investors and traders and they buy right in, genius I know"... "so how many do I need to buy?""Ah, I dunno, say 10 grands worth??"Yep.|
|It would seem that it wants to test the all time low at about 168.
Personally I would turn buyer at that point.|
|Check out NCC, same short positions, same price action|
|A token gesture!|
|The Deputy Chairman has bagged some at £1.89 today, but its hardly a massive show of faith......|
|Sao, look to short tracker and enter PETS. You'll get the list of all >5% short positions. I personally don't think you get much from level 2 on this topic apart from maybe market depth. What you won't see is huge sell orders going in by institutional sellers, they'll orders will be all algo. Small orders taking out the bid.|
|How can one check for institutional shorts? Level 2|
|BNM KILLING THIS
COMPARE THE PRICES
|I keep saying to myself it has to improve, come 4.30 I think I should off taken the pain and write them off.|
|Yep Odys relatively defensive and although store growth is flat vet business is growing pretty fast. Also a good dividend now. Watching from the sidelines but still worried that the shooters have the upper hand here|
|Odys, I agree with you. But, the force of those sellers is not a fight for the PI. PETS must gain some institutional longs.|
|Unless some glass-half-full investors put the hands into their pockets to help pets in time.
Gswredland, your glass is half empty.
My glass is half empty now as well, but I am not a pessimist, my wife keeps telling me that I am an alcoholic.
But seriously, I would rather see Pets At Home as a kind of a defensive stock, bringing the good profit in a long run regardless of political uncertainty. Patience is required.|
|Down to 175?|
|Royston Wild (Fool.co.uk)recommends holding as per writeup 7 February 2017:
A less-than-stellar trading update saw pooch palace Pets At Home's (LSE: PETS) share price tip to its cheapest since November 2015 last month.
The company saw like-for-like sales of animal merchandise, from collars to cat food, falling 0.5% during the three months to January 5. But a growing presence in the rapidly-expanding services sphere is paying off handsomely, and revenues across its veterinary care and grooming arm grew 7% in the period. And further investment here could keep the top line on an upward slant.
The City expects Pets At Home to endure a 1% earnings downtick in the year to March 2017 before the firm gets back into positive territory from next year. Although increasing pressure on consumers' wallets could put paid to such hopes, an unassuming P/E ratio of 13.1 times could tempt glass-half-full investors to buy-in on the back of the firm's ambitious growth plans. I reckon Pets At Home may be one to hold onto for the time being."|
