Looking at AO World, there are a few reasons as an investor (not a customer) why you should invest in Dixons Carphone, instead. Apart from Dixons paying you dividends and consistently produces profits. There are other things on AO World would raise some red flags, such as: -During their IPO, the company raised £60m but paid the bankers £20m in fees, which is 33% of gross proceeds. And afterwards, the shares have consistently drifted lower. -Also, during the IPO, their prospectus stated net income of £6.1m and soon after they never made a profit again. https://imgur.com/gallery/Te32TVu You may think the company is investing a lot of capital to grow sales/turnover because, since 2011, sales did rose from £160m to £700m. Think again, because since 2011 capex total £31m and depreciation total £21m, leaving £10m as growth capex. In other words, AO World manages to utilise £1 to increase new sales of £54. Meanwhile, Dixons has a ratio of £1 = £19, and manage to produce profits. To give some credit to AO World, their UK division is turning over a profit, but their European division is sucking all the profits out. Making matters worse is losses reported in Euros are exacerbated by weaker Pound upon conversion. Still with a £500m valuation attach, investors should be seeing profits of £20m and profit growth of 30% EPS. The above is a summary, and for the full version (including one major factor why I don’t like Dixons), the link is here http://bit.ly/2wBWPHO

Tim3 - good point, well made. Just think that the likes of Asda are struggling to see where future growth is coming from. They have massive customer base, they know they need to diversify and the parent Walmart already sells this type of stuff in the states. Salty.

My Retirement Fund, Re your 497: "Hows their banking facilities" From the finals: Group net funds position7 as at 31 March 2017 was £12.0m (2016: £25.4m), with cash being £29.4m (2016: £33.4m) and the balance sheet was strengthened further after year end through the placing of 9% of existing share capital, raising gross proceeds of £50m. I can see that there was some debt at the balance sheet date: Borrowings - Repayable within one year (3.7) Borrowings - Repayable after one year (13.7) But otherwise no material bank facilities. What am I missing? JakNife

Hi Saltaire Not sure about the supermarket potential takeover although its always possible.. Sainsburys takeover of Argos was a masterstroke by Coupe imo because it allowed massive potential cost savings by moving Argos into the Sainsburys stores helping with the overcapacity issues and bringing more customers into Sainsburys at the same time. Of course AO is online only so there is no potential for cost saving by closing stores and there is the small issue of it consistently not making a profit. There may be a potential for a takeover with somebody like Dixons though as their product lines are similar and it would increase there online presence and save money by merging operations as well as improving buying power with manufactures. IMO

I'm sort of interested in buying some of these. My reasoning is that the major supermarkets are moving into new areas - Sainsbury bought Argos, Tesco buying Booker. Why not Morrisons or ASDA buying AO? Stranger things have happened. Why would they? Digital commerce footprint beyond the traditional boundaries of their existing business, international expansion, new revenue stream, diversification benefits. Might make sense? Salty.

Well so far support behaving as it should be technically could be a nice bounce here provided wider tech market does not crash imo.

What were the terms of his £1 bet, did the company have to remain solvent for a given period of time? A bigger example of stockmarket IPO hubris you would struggle to find (well maybe not as there are plenty to choose from). To be fair though, I found their actual delivery service to be first class

Am certainly not a fan either. If they were a traditional retailer making a loss year after year rather than an internet one what would their share value be? One thing for sure if the market gets ugly and starts looking at fundamentals again then these could fall a very long way. I guess there is always the possibility of a takeover. Closed below support, next (major) support 120.

Cant see the attraction myself. Anyone can increase market share by shifting boxes at a loss.

Chartwise there is good support here however the rapid fall looks worrying and could see support broken. On fundamentals it just seems to be one reason after another for not being profitable.I also don't remember Dixons being so negative about the UK outlook when they updated a short time ago.On a positive side the increase in profitability in the Uk is encouraging but will it continue.

Said it before but this stands and falls on whether you believe that Appliances Online can truly become Anything Online and keep branching out into new product sectors.At that point it becomes interesting.Punt tackle.

Did a bit of research and found out about the following: 1. Sales growth in the last eight yrs averages 28.5%/annum, but no profit made! 2. Sale per employee fell from £317k in 2008 to £286k today, while the cost per staff went up by 65% over that period. 3. AO World paid bankers' fee "1/3" of gross proceeds to float on the market compared to BOOHOO's 4.6%. 4. Since listing it made an average loss of £6m/year, but management claims these losses are down to the costs of its European division.

IG has had no borrow for as long as I can remember. I have managed tiny quantities with City Index but only ever after long periods of strength - which is handy in a way. Squeezes always a worry with so much already short.
