|Judging by the recent share price movement, the market clearly is not concerned :)|
|What's everyone's view on the new CFO, seems to have had mixed success in his previous roles - should we be worried?|
|It is of no concern to me whatsoever.|
|In response to people's questions/comments directed towards myself.
It would be impolite to ignore people masurenguy. But I shall ignore people in future if it's helps you.|
|"I don't wish to start wars here."
Well - if so - and since you have already stated that you sold out some months ago, and you don't rate the forward prospects, why are you continuing to post here several times a day?|
|Look. I don't wish to start wars here. You guys think it's a good investment, it is. Just not long term. But we all have different views|
|Raymond my independent was doing 12 for a £1.
Let's not get into a pi$$ing competition :)|
|Billy I know this to be true because I'm a silent partner in a small chain of independents all of who are cheaper than factory. Our margins are 58% gross profit. I also know that factory take the pi$$ with its pricing and quality. It's slogan is also misleading and possibly in breach of advertising rules. I'm an "other" and like for like I'm cheaper and better quality.|
|They were selling reasonable Easter cards 8 for a £1 !!!!!|
|1novice - So your local independent is cheaper than card factory with far superior quality? They are selling quality cards for under £1? How can they possibly be making any money? That doesn't sound very likely to me. If its true you better have a word with their manager and see if you can invest in the business. CARD clearly benefit from massive economies of scale which makes them the big winner in the budget card market.|
|Bought when 1st floated. Sold last may Garycook.|
|Novice,Bad luck for you then getting out of CARD.At what price did you sell ?|
|Hey, I got out of these months ago. As too the cmoment about its not as good as Clinton cards but it's a 1/3 the price. I use my local independent, it's cheaper than factory it has better standard of service and the quality is far superior. But you guys invest away.|
|Of course the Card Factory cards are not as good quality as Clintons.....they are 1/3rd of the price! Most people don't want to pay £4-5 for a card. Its ok if you only buy a couple of cards a year but I have a young family and my kids have lots of friends birthdays. We must buy nearly one card a week and card factory is perfect with a big selection and good price. I also bought CARD at a lot lower levelss earlier in the year but I intend to hold for the long term as I believe the business model works.|
|M,Totally agree with you.The Noise are just aggrieved that they did not buy CARD at the bottom.|
|1novice: "Masurenguy and what's it's price over the last couple of years?"
I couldn't care less about the last couple of years. Investing in anything is also about timing and my entry point here was at 244p in February this year. At yesterdays close of 314p I'm up almost 29% in a couple of months with a 6.3p dividend still to come in June.
If you don't rate the forward potential for this share then don't invest in it. The other issues that you raise in this context are just 'noise' !|
|It seems that way ! Glad I purchased at 234.I believe CARD can get back to £4.|
|Do i see some toasted short fingers on here?|
death by donut
|With a present 7.66% dividend yield at 3.1450.Not to be sneezed at IMHO.|
|Have to say that I've never come out of card factory with anything. The quality is just so poor. The quality and selection at Clintons is far superior. I accept it's more expensive but then if you believe the card is important as I do then you'll pay the extra for it. The share price looks pretty tippy to me so I think I'll give CARD a miss for now as there are better income shares with less risk.|
|Spoole5 you get what you pay for. Sadly people expect a rolls Royce for the price of a lada. Ain't gonna happen.|
|Prices are the same as they've been for 2 or 3 years. The quality is fine. 1.50 in card factory or 4 quid in Clinton's for something that gets thrown away. In my town Clinton's is always empty, i imagine it will be one of the ones they close, leaving the whole market to card factory.|
|"And people are deserting them in droves as the service is poor. Quality is poor and prices are creeping up"
Really - that must explain why the shareprice is up 33% over the past 3 months !|
