Perhaps one shouldn't pay too much attention to the brokers's reports,after all they are in the business of getting customers to buy and sell shares,but Applegreen have been added to Davy's Buy Conviction List.

Applegreen – Just Grab & Go! And yes, with the blog turning six this year & a tsunami of retail apocalypse headlines recently, it’s ironic I’m only now posting my first retail investment thesis ever! But rest assured, this isn’t some soggy chewed-up cigar butt. Nor some story stock priced & pitched for perfection. Though, almost inevitably, the retail sector only seems to come in those two flavours nowadays… Whereas Applegreen plc (APGN:ID, APGN:LN) is that rarest of beasts: A bona fide long-term retail growth story trading for a value price. And since it’s a retailer, first let’s focus on Applegreen’s story – its history, its people, its offering, its prospects – we’ll home in on the numbers later. If you’re a story person, I hope you enjoy the videos along the way. As for the numbers people…I definitely encourage you to circle back & watch ’em later! Let’s begin: Applegreen is a major Irish petrol forecourt* retailer, with a significant & growing presence in the UK, and an emerging footprint in the US Northeast. [*As the Irish would say, a fillin’ station. To translate: A gas station, gasoline stand, gasbar, petrol station, petrol garage, petrol pump, service station, servo, etc….selling petrol, gas, or gasoline (& diesel)]. Bob Etchingham (CEO) founded the business as (Petrogas) in 1992, after working at Esso for 10 years, and was joined a year later by Joe Barrett (COO) (ex-Tesco & John West Foods). They’ve been described as ‘chalk & cheese’, and it’s obvious they play to their respective strengths & personalities in their roles. Growth was gradual at first, but from the outset management focused on developing its retail proposition & establishing a quality food offering. Which led to the launch of the Applegreen brand in 2005, heralding a distinctive retail-led proposition for customers built on a ‘Low Fuel Prices, Always’ price promise, ‘Better Value Always’ convenience shopping, and high quality own brand/international food & beverage offerings..... .....for the complete Applegreen investment thesis, videos, links, tables/graphs, etc. visit the Wexboy investment blog. Cheers, Wexboy

Blue , it all depends on their supply agreements . They use Greenergy for many of their sites but also other distributors like Valero . The UK model seems strange selling fuel extremely cheap but shop pricing quite inhibitive . Footfall rising but ultimately , customer shop basket spend not complimenting and there lies the issue . They have taken a few sites over with very little capital expenditure being made and have seemed to use a type of "sub brand fascia" that is not easily identifiable at roadside without the APPLEGREENS logo on . To be honest , it looks like a poorly imaged independant site . I know they are looking to increase their site-bank and believe they will develop them in the next 12/18 months - but have they missed the customer capture opportunity already ?

Looks like the Down trend is going to see the Sp fall below the original listing price soon. Something is not right here, they should seeing even higher returns this year with the fall in Oil prices and the increase in traffic on the Motorways. Is debt an issue here now?

This performance was driven by new site openings in both the latter part of 2014 and early 2015 as well as the increased contribution from food driven by our upgrade and rebranding programme. We continued to expand our business in the year adding five Service Area sites and seven petrol filling stations in the Republic of Ireland, as well as expanding our network of dealer sites by 25. In the UK our site numbers increased by eight including the first Motorway Service Area in Northern Ireland. We also launched two new food offers- Chopstix and Greggs - and increased the number of our food outlets by 29 across the estate. We have had a positive start to 2016, adding four Service Area sites and seven petrol filling stations to the estate and we continue to see good opportunities for green field and bolt-on expansion. Consumer sentiment is strong in both our key markets, particularly the Republic of Ireland, and we are confident that our distinctive retail offering in the forecourt sector will continue to deliver growth through 2016."

Ireland is their core business - the UK market is vastly different and seems like they are picking up the sites that none of the majors / other top 50 independants want purely for market share . Strangely the first time i saw an Applegreens site was on the A10 in London - it was always packed and then changed to Shell - strange

Applegreen motorway services I pass in Ireland are always packed with cars queued for fuel and lengthy queues at the till. Very brisk trade and most people picking up high margin coffees snacks etc as well. The Irish trade looks to be going very well and the strengthening € should translate to stronger £ results for late 2015 and early 2016.
