Always a shame when someone steps down for health reasons, but looks like a good new appointment today

Card Factory was highlighted by the Sunday Times' Inside the City column after the retailer's shares lost almost a third in 2018 so far and are under water for any shareholders who are still holding on from its flotation in 2014. Last week's results showed a 9% fall in underlying earnings but were followed by Swiss activist investor Teleios Capital revealing it has a 5.1% stake. When Teleios bought shares in SodaStream in 2016 the investor helped quietly steer the company to a $3.2bn takeover by PepsiCo within around two years. As Card Factory makes most of the greetings cards it sells, it has gross margins of 30% and throws off enough surplus cash to pay a good dividend. Greetings cards are far from the worst areas of the retail market in the event of a downturn, but its toes could easily be stepped on by supermarkets looking to use their excess shop-floor space by stocking more cards and the last recession shredded Card Factory's profits. "Teleios is leaving investors guessing as to its intentions. If it really does want to eventually engineer another lucrative buyout, it's hard right now to see who would take a big money punt on a bricks-and-mortar chain."

Hmm..didn't I get slated on here a few months ago for predicting this? Never mind. May be in future all you armchair "experts" might listen instead of mocking.

In store cost cutting by "reducing the tasks" might improve the numbers in the short term but could easily reduce the attractiveness of the shops and lead to medium term decline.

Looks like there's a subtle change of strategy with the adoption of the franchise model, partnerships, etc. I agree. Poor results.

Grim reading IMPO falling LFL sales Increasing debt Increasing debt financing costs increased capital spending special dividend funded from debt "Getting Personal" in trouble Reduced special div at the bottom of the forecast range there are some positives - a bit of innovation Franchise model trials Concession models Improved spend per visitor Better performance in the "Everyday" range (so where were we going before that better performance) Given the pasting Alliance Pharma took for doing pretty well we will see what happens here. I have given up trying to guess the reaction

I thought we already knew the results. We were told all about it a few weeks ago. Should be no surprises.

Big drop on no news. Any theories? Maybe someone has wind of the results already

It might have performed like a dog - for YOU! You made the choice and decided on the timing. Move on, grow up and try and improve your trading/investing.

Woodless yes. I made a mistake with this one and having to waste my time trading my way out of it. Not the first time and won't be the last. i simply don't follow the unbounded optimism for a stock that has performed like a dog and where there is no sight of anything getting any better. But please keep on "topping up" and "piling in" who wouldn't with a trailing yield like this one?

So YOU made a bad call, and all you do is whine about it and tell others they're wrong? What a fool.
