Nothing in the update to suggest Booker won't come good in the short to medium term. Especially with the opportunities for efficiencies after their acquisitions

Yes possibly Ayl, the main point I suppose is that overall profits must be up so they are steering the business in the right direction. Also importantly 'The outlook for profits and net cash remains in line with the guidance given at the Interim Results. ' Let's hope the market sees it as good news.

Probably benefit of savings from integration of acquisition. Charles always understates position so they obviously feel confident n reaffirming profit position

Mixed news there I would have said. great to hear total sales up 10.5%, not so good to hear total sales for the Booker/Makro side down 3.1% with non tobacco sales reduced by 1.3% on a like-for-like basis. I'm a little confused by the comment 'Booker Wholesale with Makro, our cash and carry division, had a good quarter for customer numbers, customer satisfaction and CASH PROFIT.' How can the customer numbers and cash profit of the Booker/Makro side be good bearing in mind they have said sales were down year on year? Anyone any thoughts?

This just landed in my inbox, not sure if it's the reason for the drop but if so it definitely looks like a top up opportunity imo. Citigroup Inc.

It's certainly not a leaky company so I wouldn't worry that 'someone knows something' but such a drop is certainly odd. One for the brave perhaps?

Very odd! Large drop on small volume though. Could be a shake to pick up shares before results?

Why the fall? Given others are experiencing positive news re grocery sales.

Shame we didn't get the end of day finish I think it deserved. Hopefully the market will catch on over the next few days, it's often the way with Booker. This article sums up my thoughts. The tobacco figure was a distraction from the really important element which was that pre-tax profit was up by 10%. What's more, as CW pointed out in the presentation, the acquisition of B & L is important as it targets a different area of the country and higher spending customers, so it is bringing a whole new group of customers in. Market challenges fail to dampen Booker Group 15th Oct 2015 Midlands Storm Rannard Pre-tax profit has spiked by 10 per cent at Wellingborough-headquartered food wholesaler Booker Group, despite a challenging UK grocery market. In the 24 weeks to 11 September 2014, the business reported pre-tax profits of £74.1m, up from £67.4m. Revenues declined by 1 per cent to £2.2bn and tobacco sales fell by 3.7 per cent due to a ban on small stores advertising tobacco products. But a statement from the group said trading in the first four weeks of its current half year is ahead of the same period in 2014 following the completion of the Budgens and Londis on 14 September. Chief executive Charles Wilson added: "This was a solid performance and our plan to focus, drive and broaden the business remains on track. "Despite the challenges in the UK grocery market we continue to improve choice, prices and service for our retail and catering customers. We are delighted that Londis and Budgens have joined Booker and we look forward to growing with our customers." However, Bookers is anticipating a "challenging consumer and market environment" in the coming year.

Agree Woody - solid results. Tobacco is part of the old legacy, they just have to manage round it, with each passing month it becomes less of a problem, we need to focus on the future which looks promising.

Morning pilly, I was pleased with them. Just watched the webcast presentation which is worth doing. The market is looking at the tobacco sales and seeing more of a problem than there is. BOK have been easing out of tobacco for ages now as the margins are tiny so though 3.7% down looks a lot, it makes very little impact on the overall profits of the group which being up 10% is excellent, so a great buying opp IMO, couldn't resist picking up some more this morning. For me it's the cash that is all important. This company is cash rich hence it's able to return another special divi again. With the acquisition of B & L that cash turnover will grow year on year which is all good for us. Solid results again so happy to be invested.

Mmm, just read your blog wheelie, not sure what the rationale to sell was? As you state "the chances are that it can go higher as the Momentum of the Uptrend continues to do its magic."

Hi all, It was not an easy decision but I finally decided to Sell my BOK - I still like the Stock in a lot of ways but it's got to the point where perhaps the best gains have been had and I am moving on. I bashed out my thoughts on a Blog here: hTTp://www.wheeliedealer.weebly.com/blog Much of my thinking was cos I wanted to buy something else !! regards, WheelieD
