Well, despite the very strong LFL increases at this time last year they still managed to improve by a further 5% and with the new store in Aberdeen doing very well I simply cant get my head around the rating here so I am topping up my stake. It is not often that you get to buy a growth story with a divi over 8%.

Spread here is pretty rotten, Barc. Stock = bid/ask =162p/170p Agree a bit too early to call re trading, but balance sheet is solid.

I would be truly amazed if there was either a profit warning or an upgrade imminent. They updated the Market a few weeks ago and confirmed that LFL orders were +4% v LY. They key trading times of the year (Boxing Day Sale, Easter, Bank Holidays) are all still in front of us, so a change to Full year expectation is far too early to call at this stage. I think the most likely reasons for the 20p fall in the share price are the "ex div" status change, and also their largest competitor DFS seeing their largest Shareholder and former 100% owner Advent placing their remaining shares at c20p below market price at the time. DFS is similar to ScS in that ScS have Sun Capital as a former 100% owner with a large remaining stake

I agree with Salapara. I have a lot of money in this, and see the price fall as an opportunity. At least the Spread is not at its usual nasty place, so I bought more yesterday, more this morning, and will keep going. You have to remind yourself over and over that the divi of 9% is hardly "vulnerable" based on the current numbers, given that the 52 week cash generation last year was £12m even after paying c£6m divi...so its covered 3 times by cash profits ...and then there is c£22m cash on the Balance Sheet.

If you strip out cash here then the forward p/e is about 5 and the yield is heading towards 9% so either there is going to be a monumental crash or the stock is at least 50% undervalued.

Bad day in the market. I think the PE company in DFS offloaded a few shares this am, possible read across to SCS.

Rather depressing that after holding for 9 months I am well under water despite a string of very positive trading updates and a divi yield of 8%. Given that the business has room to expand I am not selling out. I notice that DFS is well up today.

Ex divi for 9.83p plus a bit of overshoot by the look of it

There was a very helpful presentation at the recent results that covers issues such as currency impacts; hxxp://www.scsplc.co.uk/~/media/Files/S/ScS/pdf/scs-group-plc-preliminary-results-presentation.pdf?pdfdata=1 Personally I view this as an extremely long term hold as it's trading well cash rich and pays an excellent dividend, but you may want something different

Don't hold, but I think the market has concerns about the retail sector, and has marked down most stocks. I appreciate co's operate in different segments of the retail space, and are of varying quality but look at NXT, MKS, SPD, which have all been sold off. TPT reported decent numbers overall last week, but alluded to weakness in the post-brexit period, and the share price has fallen to circa 90p. At the current time sentiment is very much against the sector. The fall in the value of sterling and NLW are also headwinds, so I can't see share prices recovering in the short-medium term.

Not sure what to do here, two great sets of results this year and an increased 8% divi but the share price is actually 5p below my buy in level. I guess the only consolation is that it cant really drop much further given the yield.

A very nice set of results, but the market obviously doesn't think they are sustainable giving SCS a yield of 7.5%. I have both DFS and SCS and will be holding both as I think recession fears will recede and cyclical shares like these could rise further. However, SCS has a very low operating margin (just over 3%) which is always worrying compared to DFS which has an OM of 7-9% over the last few years. In other words, its right that DFS is at a premium to SCS on other metrics.

About as good as could be expected. As they say they will have a problem with their LFL figures going forward given just how strong they have been over the last 12 months....a nice problem to have. I have been holding this for almost a year and feel that it should re rate to at least 250p if you look at the metrics against DFS.

I bought these a week ago so very happy with the performance so far. The prelims are on October the 4th.
