auguryinvesting: Investor long CARD checkout. I will be sharing my thoughts this weekend on our live members webinar 11:00 AM (EST).
wiseman1967: Bookbroker - why don't you get off the fence mate? Sounds like you should take out a huge short on this given how you feel...Ilkleyneil - it is not a given that an equity raise is needed. It will depend how how strong the banks hand is and how much they want one. The business is massively cash generative and not currently paying dividends so all cash can go towards reducing debt and this could be fully repaid in 24-36 months if that is what the Board and banks want. Alternatively they could raise money from investors to repay a chunk of debt now and then resume dividends earlier.
ny boy: Managed to buy recently after doing research, happy with recovery progress. STAF & FOXT a couple of obvious pre budget purchases imo investors twigging this morning too
finkie: Card factory is sizing up its options I would suggest and in my view deciding how to tap up investors for more money and at what discount to current share price to tempt them, my guess is new equity at 25p....
fenners66: What really annoys me about these results, was the presentation. Second line of what you expect to be the financials is :- Stores (UK & Ireland) like-for-like revenue (i) (ii) -4.4% 1.2% Now I know there are the (i) and (ii) but then you have to go and look up just what they are supposed to mean, meanwhile you then have to go down , what 20-30 pages before you reach the "REAL" number "Stores (UK & Ireland) 85.3 187.0 (54.4%) " -54.4% so the true sales number was awful. It used to be that the real figures were presented , with an adjusted figure as the explanation, Now there is a BS figure and you have to search for the real one. Its ALL spin. Sales were a disaster no amount of spin changes that - but these days many companies take investors for mugs publish the BS on the basis that some or is it most , investors cannot be bothered to read through and find the real numbers.....
lastchance23: Here is a link to The Works trading statement hxxps:// They are making more online provisions for Xmas, similar increase in basket volume, marginal loss, good cash position. Still opened 37 more stores (500 originally). I like the product range at works, fair value estimate is 26p, usually trades above. I will be looking to add if can get in at 20p or below. Useful insights in relation to Card, Cards major problem is too many stores, hopefully management will be prudent in decisions and continue to focus on scaling online.
lastchance23: Mallorca you are the biggest gamer on here, if I didn't know better I'd think you worked for bank or hedgefund...Real investors know the liquidity situation here, and if the company should need further liquidity their are a number of steps, firstly they have loan and terms to renegotiate, then they could consider an equity raise, and beyond that other options exist. To try and persistently scare about administration at an early stage is not exactly fair or ethical behaviour. This is a multi channel business that could work entirely online with warehouses, other businesses may like the inhouse design, business is never cut and dry, but management will do their best, and they are experienced and have come through prior recessions.
lastchance23: Mallorca - not sure what your definition of very strong market is, we had 3 day sell off last week. Small cap do not move with ftse 100/250, less analysts, less coverage. Value has been underplayed against growth in this recovery, but investors will start to question the fangman etf bubble, then cyclical and small cap value enter trade. I haven't decided on my play here, As I stated before I reduced my position down, I have an equal weight holding, so I can trade this within a 10-15% range easily. I would expect some job losses and store closures, but that is what all retailers are doing. They have strong online potential, so I'm not ready to write them off. This is long way off major problems, near term I'm happy to hold.
lastchance23: Ok thanks, I am just going by HL commentary... (Sharecast News) - London stocks were set to fall at the open on Thursday following weakness in the US and Asia. The FTSE 100 was called to open 83 points lower at 6,029. Investors will be mulling the latest Federal Open Market Committee minutes released overnight. Capital Economics said: "The minutes of the most recent FOMC policy meeting in late July revealed that Fed officials have gone cold on the possibility of introducing yield curve control measures and now favour introducing some form of outcome- or calendar-based forward guidance in the statement, which would be combined with the adoption of an average inflation target in the longer-run strategy and goals statement." >>> I looked at a comparison of performance of different countries about a month ago, and the ftse constituents have recovered less than other countries, it seems somewhat rigged and unfair. In the US, the only reason these FANG stocks push the market up is because they all stick a piece of them in an ETF (it must account for 50% of SP).
lastchance23: Give investors 2-3days to contemplate, remember this has lost most of the institutional investors, it probably isn't in many etf's, so this is a baseline price. If someone sees potential in the global prospects in their renewed strategy we will see new levels, tempted to add a few, either today or morning.
