From todays IC; Steady Booker delivers the goods Booker (BOK) might not be the most exciting business on the stock market, but it’s certainly steady. That much is clear from its rock-solid trading in the first six months of the year, which is all the more impressive in light of the problems plaguing the wider food retail sector. Like-for-like sales grew 2.4 per cent, driving adjusted operating profit up 15 per cent to £68.1m. Sales to caterers rose 2.7 per cent to £686m, while sales to retailers increased by 2.6 per cent to £1.26bn. Internet sales were 12 per cent higher at £413m, and highly regarded chief executive Charles Wilson said delivery capacity would increase by 80 per cent over the next two years. He also plans to increase the number of Family Shopper discount stores from 15 to 300 over the next four years. The integration of the Makro acquisition is firmly on track, too. Following a special dividend payment of 3.5p a share in July, Booker plans to pay out a similar amount to shareholders in July next year. Mr Wilson said current trading was ahead of last year, but still gave a cautious outlook in light of the well-documented price squeeze in food retail. Broker Peel Hunt expects EPS of 6.3p for the full financial year, up from 5.7p in 2014. @ Booker’s shares are down 4 per cent since our recent buy tip (126p, 31 July 2014), mainly due to negative sentiment in the sector and because German cash and carry operator Metro AG sold its 9 per cent holding. With its history of generous shareholder returns, however, this cash-rich, well-run, steady growth story remains enduringly attractive. JB Buy

Looks like CW has decided to start beating the drum at last. "Booker is hosting an institutional investor and analyst event in Enfield today, Friday 24 October 2014." I must say when compared to the fiasco that is Tesco, the growth figures that this management continually provides look quite spectacular. Well done the BOD for realising that the market needs to hear loud and clear what a great job you're doing.

Guessing this is a result of the presentations that CW and JP have been doing. For those who haven't spotted it, they have done a webcast available to view for the first time this year. Well worth watching, a convincing presentation which confirms my confidence that this is a growing company. http://www.bookergroup.com/investor-centre/reports-and-presentations.aspx

Maybe they have different time horizons? I remember a few years ago feeling I might have made an error holding when the Naked Trader announced he'd sold out. Turned out ok though.

Shame the results just so happened to be released on a bad market day. The fact its still blue shows the strength of the business and the fact that investors are taking their money out of other stocks and happy to take a 'safe' position here.

Tried its best to rise, but was just met with persistent AT selling The RNS read really well to my eyes, but with markets in this state even the good companies can suffer.

Good report out this morning. Half year profit up 16%, interim div up and confirmation that they intend to pay the extra special dividend again next year. Love the repetition of the phrase "strong cash generation". Hopefully see that bounce today...
