no dice: One possible reason for the BWNG share price doldrums that may have been overlooked is that a substantial - and now majority - shareholding can be seen by the market as a negative and hence weigh down on the price. If this is the case here then shareholders are in for a prolonged and frustrating period of undervaluation.
john09: A snippet in the mail today putting the drop in share price yesterday down to a disappointing Christmas for N Brown with sales over the period 8.8% lower than last year. They kinda have a point.
middlesboroughfc: Evil K N.Brown (LON:BWNG) are going alright – as is very clear from today’s statement. For some reason the share price is down. So I have helped myself to £150,000 worth.
ammu12: Excellent update this from lse:Home & Gift sales now comprise 42% of product revenueToday 07:39We are now starting to see the astute decision by BWNG to diversify. "Home & Gift customer demand enabled by agility of business model" i.e. 42% of product revenue, compared to 32% in the same period last year.Particularly strong demand for computing (+115%)gaming (+50%) and white goods (+48%), Strong growth in leisurewear and nightwear (i.e. lockdown clothing).The Group currently expects to deliver FY'21 adjusted EBITDA of between £84m to £86mIt's good to see the move to offer a broader product portfolio is rapidly paying off and with Online the main way to shop for many these days this can only be good news for BWNG - as the Home & Gift sales numbers demonstrate. Exciting times for BWNG. Next stop 100p+.Good luck, Brighty
purchaseatthetop: I think it is very solid. They are completely changing their marketing channels and becoming a modern and lean organisation. These things take 3 years. Not 1 year. I did not expect enormous results and have a middling holding that I have not increased expecting a huge share price jump. Quite satisfactory and if the market drops the price then I will buy some more as it will be good value.
cravencottage: John Nice to see a new thread. 92% of BWNG’s business migrated to internet ( not affected by lockdown 2) Schroder’s doubling their holding and a real emphasis on debt reduction should see a gradual uptick in share price between now and when BWNG have their TS sometime in January. These are all reasons to be cheerful for 2021
domrebs: here's the IC article. charts won't copy across but it's basically a weekly from highs in Mar 2014 to date plotting failed breaks and bearish continuation trend - with key resistance 350 and 150 so maybe suggests those are the pullbacks but no TP given. cheers By Michael Taylor N Brown has suffered for several years now but studying its charts shows ways private investors can pounce Institutions can't move as quickly as private traders so keep an eye on volumes Brown (N) Group (BWNG) is a UK clothing and footwear retailer best known for selling plus-sized clothing. You may be aware of its main brands – Jacamo and Simply Be. Once an investor favourite, it’s suffered a serious fall from grace. The stock peaked in early 2014, briefly kissing 600p before collapsing faster than Covid-testing stocks on Vaccine Day. Chart 1 shows the speed of the demise. Within eight months the stock had more than halved, and the volume had increased on the price fall too. I once read somewhere that volume kills trends, and this is something that has stuck with me. I believe volume is an indicator of a potential new trend beginning, but for that to happen the old trend must be killed off. Therefore, if the stock is up trending and the volume is ramping up – it may be that sellers are taking advantage of the liquidity to unwind positions. Remember, institutions with large amounts of stock lack the agility that we as private investors and traders do. It’s this position agility that is our greatest advantage. Unless we have nailed our flag to the mast in an illiquid stock, we’re able to get out of most stocks with just a few trades and not affect the price too much. But for an institution, selling out of a position can take days or weeks. We can use the chart to spot this and use their weakness to our advantage. I have marked two areas of resistance with two arrows. In the upper arrow, we can see the stock rallied after the dip on good volume. All the moving averages were trending upwards, and so it had all the hallmarks of a potential stage-2 stock. It had even doubled from its lows – a real sign of strength. Yet despite all these tell-tale signs, it failed to breakout and continued in its downtrend.In the second arrow, we can see a similar pattern. This time, the stock did break out, but it then came down to test the support, fell through it, and again continued its trajectory downwards.I’ve highlighted these to show how difficult trading can be – despite these patterns looking good technically they both still failed. Sadly, there is no step-by-step fool-proof method anyone can say works every time. But, just as a casino is set up to gives itself an edge against punters in games of chance like roulette, our house edge is to keep playing what works and minimise our risk. Moving onto Chart 2, we see things have changed. The stock fell off a cliff in mid-January, and continued to fall all the way down until the stock rapidly bounced. This is the sort of trend short sellers dream of; the stock falls and keeps falling. And then keeps falling, and falling further. This was certainly the case in February with many stocks, as everyone was too frightened to buy, and so it was a one-way street of sellers. Short-selling fear is an excellent strategy to rack up profits. I’ve drawn an arrow where we can see a volume spike, and we see this volume continued well into April and May, with the price flatlining. This is a sign of demand as buyers are soaking up sellers. One of the great things about volume is that it shows the market as it really is – in other words, it shows true prices. Prices that are backed by poor volume can easily be shifted into a price that is false. This is a problem – and opportunity – of small cap stocks. It’s very easy to tick a stock up or down on a buy or sell of just a few thousand pounds (a fact well-known about by bulletin board rampers and Twitter pumpers). Therefore, just a few well-timed buys can tick the stock up and show a price that has somehow added several million pounds of value to the stock with just a quantum buy of £2,000. This is why I prefer SETS traded stocks, as they are more liquid and the prices are real. Try as you might, you will need some firepower to move Brown Group and that’s assuming no one is waiting for the price to tick up to unload. Currently, I can buy 25,000 shares within the spread – although a tell-tale sign that there is a potential sell order being worked is that I can sell the same amount well below the quoted bid. If the market makers are not buying stock, it could be because they are actively working someone’s sell order – which is why the stock may be offered attractively. For this reason, I believe it’s also worth checking liquidity on both the bid and the ask to see what the market depth is beyond Level 2 (see ‘On the Level’, 21 November 2019 and my article for more on this). Coming back to Brown Group – the bottom red line is the resistance area I have marked. Both volume and volatility are dropping off. This suggests a new equilibrium point for the stock. The company also raised £100 million at 57p to accelerate its growth strategy. Whether or not this works or not is not a trader’s concern – buy the breakout at 65p for a good risk/reward trade. Those who followed me into the breakout at Ferrexpo (FXPO) last week are now nicely up on the trade.
vanduke: You misunderstood.I'm not staying a long term short position but a possible temporary trading strategy to hedge against a sell off, that may occur when and if investors cash in on the offer shares (if share price is substantially above the offer price).A short position (equal to the offer share position) would hedge any fall in price.I'm sure the more experienced investor will be taking advantage of this possible scenario.I know I will.Just to clarify, I'm long and strong with average price in 20s.Won't be selling first batch until 1 pounds.
inever: I am not advocating investing in Boohoo. You are missing my point. Boohoo brands are recording stellar growth so they have a crazy p/e. But on top of their own brands they have found the time to buy distressed retail brands. In August 2019 they bought Karen Millen and Coast for £18.2m, hardly a king's ransom.On June 17th this year they announced the purchase of Oasis and Warehouse for £5.25m. On this announcement their share price went up 26p, 5%. The market capitalization of Boohoo increased by £328m on the basis of a £5.25m announcement. Increasing shareholder value for all shareholders is a good thing.Now look at Brown. It plans to raise £96m and refuses to use any of it to buy a distressed brand for £5.25m. Instead they are going to pay off debt. It's share price goes down and won't go up beyond 57p until ALLIANCE hoovers up everyone's shares because ALLIANCE doesn't want it to. Is that even legal? As I've said before, this isn't a busines that needed emergency funding to stave off receivership or administration, so why the convoluted deal with one shareholder who is demanding a migration to AIM?This is a whopping fund raise, issuing 174m shares which will bring the total to 459m. The stated use is to repay debt and this will save about £3m in interest per annum. This huge fundraiser is therefore only going to add about 0.007p to earnings per share.It seems to me earnings per share will take a nose dive. Brown's P/E is already pathetic and a market vote of no confidence in this management team. This deal stinks for every shareholder except one.
inever: Revenue 2018 £922m2019 £914m2020 £858m12 months to August 2020 £781mWe are in to the third year of declining sales so when are we going to see this bright digital future? Look at Studio Retail. Same strategy moving to digital and sales were UP 39% IN H1. It can be done but Brown isn't doing it.You can't cut costs to increase profitability next year, because there's no more to cut. At some stage you have to spend to grow and all I read is they want to sell more credit.This £100m deal is massive in the context of Brown's market capitalization and today we should be discussing the potential for the business. But the market isn't talking up Brown's prospects today. The bottom line is the market doesn't think much of this £100m raise and the market does not value Brown's profits, hence the low p/e. Even the prospect of dividends for this year has not moved the dial. The ALLIANCE family are now a suffocating presence that is depressing the share price. The share price will not get a rerating so long as they have this stranglehold on the business and its strategy.
