spoole5: Eventually the share price will reflect the value, unfortunately most people don't have the patience and the shorters know this. Just topped up at 157.
crystball: I've increased my holding still further. It does seem strange about the shorting, but these results confirm the wheels have not come off the business model. Ok Import costs have increased with the change in foreign exchange rates. The hedging going forwards is a significant cost too. However, we are in a resilient home UK market. The dividend is being maintained and at the current share price gives a decent yield. Let's see what happens....
crystball: You'll be buying about 10p a share cheaper than the CFO director purchase if you do. I can't understand why the share price is so low. Maybe people don't trust the CFO's judgement?
2bluelynn: It must be a good buy at these levels with the Divi to support the share price Looking at the three year chart it could go a touch lower to support on the the three year chart any thought any one would be much appreciated as I'm about to get a load Thankyou in advance
crystball: Hard to explain why the share price has fallen so much.
odys2: Royston Wild ( holding as per writeup 7 February 2017: "Hold 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."
crystball: Can't quite understand why the share price has fallen so much. Is it wholly related to the import cost of products being greater because of the pound's weakness? PETS serve purely a domestic UK market, so not exporting anything. I continue to hold, believing in the strength of the brand and customer loyalty. Is this a buying opportunity at this price?
durham dealer: Hi djbilywiz- I too saw the large volume - I was surprised this had no positive effect on the Share-Price. In fact it's trading slightly down today. Any insight from you or others very welcome. Thanks
crystball: I watched the Watchdog program featuring criticism of Pets at Home. I was relieved there was no criticism of the groom room service or the in house Vets practices. I like the response from the company which all can see on the Pets at Home website. I am not sure about the integrity of the Watchdog program but perhaps I am biased being a PETS shareholder. I think the business model is excellent and can see considerable growth opportunities in the UK alone. In the UK, we really do love our pets! I have no idea why the share price is surging at the moment, but it is very welcome.
gargleblaster: Positive IC write-up which I previously over-looked! It's a good time to be in the puppy and kitten business. Growing at a rate of 3.5 per cent since 2012 to reach a value of £6.1bn last year, the UK pet sector is significantly outperforming the general retail market. In March 2014 investors gained access to this growth when retailer Pets at Home (PETS) listed its equity on the London Stock Exchange at an IPO price of 245p a share. Those who bought into the story have been rewarded with an 11 per cent share price gain and an inaugural final dividend of 5.4p a share - about 40 per cent of profits. The payout follows a robust set of annual figures. Last year, the expansion of the group's VIP Club, plus grooming, vet services and advanced nutrition offerings all contributed to like-for-like sales growth of 4.2 per cent. Gross margins increased by 40 basis points to 54.2 per cent, while underlying cash profits (which exclude £1.7m in share-based payments) rose nearly 10 per cent to £121m. Despite high levels of cash conversion - 77 per cent last year - chief executive Nick Wood said deleveraging "remains the priority". Only when net debt gets to roughly one times cash profits will the group consider handing back spare cash to shareholders beyond the scheduled dividend. That's partly because the group is ploughing capital into growing its services business, namely in-store veterinary practices and 'Groom Rooms'. Mr Wood hopes this will also spark an increase in like-for-like general merchandise sales, particularly as VIP members will get special discounts and reward programmes. The advanced nutrition division will also expand. New brands will be stocked and new product lines added to the company's own-brand and private-label ranges. Mr Wood said this should help attract new customers - customers who are "increasingly engaged" with pets living "healthy lives with quality products". Analysts at Merrill Lynch expect adjusted EPS of 15.6p for the current financial year, up from 13.6p in the period to March 2015.

But given the strength of consumer sentiment and Pets' rollout potential in a fragmented market, we think this one has further to run. Buy. Last IC view: Buy, 266p, 16 Apr 2015
