That’s a fair assessment but I feel that’s more than baked into the price. Unfortunately with these situations - retail, down meaningfully, uncertain outlook - nothing helps with the exception of time and in the case of SCS say, buybacks. If it didn’t have cash, everybody would say “I’d be super long this if the b/s was better”. When it does have cash, everybody worries it will disappear in line with a deteriorating outlook.

So it goes.

Frankly, I don’t have an answer. But I feel pretty well protected down here and I like the metrics we’re paying for the number 1 franchise in the U.K. and the European potential which is effectively priced at zero.

Last Octopus holdings RNS on 11/10/2022 showed a reduction to 4.95% or 3,825,000 shares.

Yesterdays 3 trades were 4,025,000 shares.
Those trades I can still only see on ADVFN.
Blackrock have also been a seller but their holding is also below 4m.
The only holders with more than 4m would still have a lot more to sell.

Pure speculation, but if somebody wanted to build a new stake then they may be approaching several holders and taking a few off each. They then may go back post results (I'm expecting poor results) to build a much larger stake at a lower price.

That is why ANG will survive because they are mopping up the trade from all the older independent tackle shops that are closing or are not etrade savvy .Their only real competition is Go Outdoors (JD Sports) through the Fishing Republic brand However I dont see ANG as a potential investment, the total UK trade is declining, albeit slowly, and they are struggling to get traction in Europe.

Monthly weather forecast is not looking good for most of the country.
Last year was sunny late spring / early summer.
YoY will this be a further drag on ANG in the coming months?
YoY comparatives may be better later in the summer due to last years low river levels.
Any thoughts?

This should simply be a successful on line model only.Huge square footage employing staff to service super low footfalls with increasing inflationary costs in wages,rents,rates,heating and lighting is paramount to Hari Kari!!!!???There is indeed an ill wind blowing through the cobwebs of camp ANG?CEO at least is running now. E fire being pushed off his bench!

Have AD proved the business model works? I think in the UK they have just about done so. Expansion through acquisition of local established retailers appears to have given way to opening new retail units on secondary out of town retail parks or arterial roads.
Expansion in Europe has still to be proven.
Covid has been a massive disruption that could of been fatal.
If Europe strategy works then the share price should recover enabling capital to be raised to fund expansion or PE may take it on.
Still not holding. Waiting.

I would not be considering buying ANG if I did not like the business model. I would speculate that consolidation of a fragmented market has not worked before as the knowledge of a locally owned business has been an essential part of the shopping experience. With online video that experience can be passed on thousands of times without the need to go into a local shop or buy a magazine.
Higher margin own brand stock requires volume and it is a competitive advantage to have it available to see instore as well as online.
ANG have some cash to expand but if they can prove the business model works and is profitable then investors or private equity may provide more cash to expand quicker in Europe.

Posted at 14/10/2021 18:57 by tole penny stock is up almost 20% in 2 days! Here's why it could rise moreManika Premsingh | Thursday, 14th October, 2021 | More on: ANGA pile of British one penny coins on a white background. Image source: Getty ImagesAIM stock Angling Direct (LSE: ANG) was up around 11% day before yesterday following its robust results. It closed up by another 8.5% today. This means, that in two days, it is up by almost 20%! But its performance over the past year was not spectacular before this week. It is up by nearly 25% now, but until its latest results were out, all the gains made over the year had been wiped out. So, its share price was not significantly above last year's levels. I think this is an important point to consider when figuring out whether to buy the stock or not. What happened to the Angling Direct share price?To answer the above question, I went back to its last results released in May. I had written about it then, and my sense was that its share price could continue to rise in the present environment. At that time, the environment was one of overall bullishness in the stock markets. The FTSE 100 index had been rising pretty much steadily for the last few months since vaccines were announced in early November. Since then, however, stock markets have been more moody. Longer-than-expected pandemic-related disturbances, rising prices and a slow recovery have weighed them down. I reckon this shows up in Angling Direct's share prices as well, along with some expected moderation in growth from the lockdown boom. The penny stock had a value of 86p when its full-year results were released in May, and has fallen by more than 17% since. It did not help that its price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio at 26 times at the time, looks high in hindsight. What's next for the penny stock?However, I think fortunes may be about to look up for the now-beaten-down stock. Based on today's results, I estimate its P/E ratio calculated from the last 12 months' earnings is around 13 times. This is half the P/E it had until a few months ago.This alone makes it an attractive stock to me. Especially considering that strong earnings growth it has recently seen. Its earnings per share, for instance, are up by 83% from last year. So, at the current share price, its P/E could fall even more if it keeps up with this performance over the rest of the year. This could make it even more attractive. What I'd doI think we can continue to expect a rise in its share price over time from this point on, barring any unforeseen developments with the company. I do not, however, think that it will rise fast. The broader environment has weakened considerably. Numbers on the UK's recovery released yesterday show continued sluggish growth. And while the company has not so far been affected by inflation, it does say that it is not immune to cost pressures. But for my long-term investments, I still think this is a stock to buy.
