saurish: Fair point, but there is plenty to choose from at various price points. We ordered the smallest most basic cake as it was only for few. We had no complaints about the quality or taste. I think the cheaper priced ones are great to lure in customers who could potentially spend more once they taste the product.
pogue: I bought and sold on the way up the last spike so not like I havent bought here before. I am not into 5 year long buy and holds in AIM I see too many black swans in this market for that approach this share is a prime example of that this year. I like to see a share that is undervalued or has a rerating coming for either a world event change or about to possible strike something like gold, oil or drug discovery that can cause a rerate. I have generally lent towards pharma, miners and O&G stocks for that reason. This is a bargain just now but it could go lower I am not seeing where the upside drivers are in the macro, inflation and recession are not good for retailers. Miners and O&G on the other hand should do well as commodities will rise in value, their production costs will rise as well though. Here costs are rising and the value or desirability of a cake is likely to fall as the price rises. It maybe it has a loyal following but even oil which is a necessity really is seeing demand destruction at current high prices.
pogue: So the plan is to absorb some costs, pass some on and increase the retail price as they did in January. So more expensive product and potentially lower profit margins. So they have no magic plan. Netflix I suggest is less of a luxury than a birthday cake and its getting hit hard with a price rise making people cancel. Still not seeing why this is a good place in a high inflation recessionary environment. Would like to as I want to invest but not ticking the boxes.
pogue: saurish thank you for the reply. That is the reason I am still sitting on the fence. I cannot see how going forward the profits can remain the same. The company wont go bust, some of the franchisees might if the costs get too high and demand drops. I mean what did people do before egg free cakes? There are other options people dont have to buy a cake from CBOX. The coming storm is going to be bad I am looking for places to put my money that is safe retail is a hard one to find someone with a must have product that the price can be increased to cover rising costs for no loss of custom. CBOX does have the moat of being unique in the market but I cannot believe people will keep buying cakes over normal food and fuel so its customer base must decline at the margins and its costs must rise. Its whether they can balance that by cutting into their large margins but does that not then just reduce profitability and thus the share price?
saurish: I think like every business they will not be immune to rising costs. They would do well to mitigate some of it by forward buying etc Most importantly the management has a bit of leeway with operating margins averaging around 22% and growth potential by their side. However, as per your argument cake will become a luxury now, however with CBOX cakes priced towards the reasonable end of the market for celebration cakes with a unique eggless offering I suppose the sales would stay steady. Where their could be a drop is in the takeaway cake slices etc. which do not constitute a huge percentage of sales. As per price increases I think management will have to strike a balance between raising prices and absorbing some proportion of cost so as to not affect demand too much. They'll also have to look at tightening up any loose ends for expense leakage and save money. Going forward I see some shrinkage in operating margin which should be absorbed by growing sales in short term to keep profits steady but if the costs keep increasing long term then like any retail business it would start taking its toll on the bottom line. However, IMHO in the retail spectrum the business is in a much better position due to its strong margins, unique offering, steady demand and growing franchisees. The management however will have to stay nimble in these rising cost waning demand times to keep the business steady and achieve some sort of growth. I'm a holder. DYOR
pogue: Belgian bakers and pastry chefs are struggling with fluor and power costs rising. Really cannot see how Cake Box are immune to this. If you cant make money making bread or pastries in Belgium things are tough. hTTps:// .....Szalies has already had to let go of one of his team and now has a single pastry chef helping him across his two workshops. Albert Denoncin, co-president of the Belgian Bakery and Pastry Confederation, has warned that the problem could be about to get even worse. “We must not forget that Ukraine is the granary of Europe, and with what is happening at the moment, there is nothing more coming out of Ukraine,” he said. “This means that tomorrow we could see the price of flour quadruple, which wouldn't surprise us, given the current circumstances.” For Belgium’s 3,500 bakeries and pastry shops, wheat is not the only thing that is getting more expensive. Energy prices have skyrocketed and are set to increase even more during 2022 as Europe slashes the amount of natural gas it imports from Russia and oil prices rise. "Last year we were paying 3,000 euros a month for electricity and we've just received an adjustment of 9,000 euros,” he said. “So I'll let you imagine, the worst is yet to come. Next year, how much we will pay, I have no idea.”
pogue: Can anyone explain how a luxury retail business can do well in a high inflation environment? I lived through high inflation when I was young and my experience is people stop spending on anything not essential and prices of goods keep rising whilst wages lag by a long way and strikes are common. I would add the main income for CBOX is selling sponge to their franchisees and wheat is going to skyrocket in price going forward so will margins be cut or will they just attempt to pass onto the consumer the price hikes? Sensible answers please.
