Not sure that there is such a thing as a ‘normal range’ when it comes to ownership breakdown of a listed Company.

monte1. Thanks for sharing.
"General Public 16.6% and Hedge Funds 11.6%". Would those figures be in the normal range you would expect.

Not sure - as his last declaration was crossing 3% on the way down he doesn’t need to issue any further notifications unless he increases again - so he may have decreased further or be out altogether - or held in nominee account with one of the other named holders.

monte1: Would your list include private individuals?
Stuart Middleton (former creative director of Card Factory) reduced from 3.8% to 2.6% in 02/10/23 RNS or could his shares be held in one of the top 25 institutions?

roghart, lets hope the footfall in Plymouth is repeated across the country.

I suspect footfall data and spending data is sold in tiers before reaching free publications, allowing investors further up the food chain to take beneficial positions in retail stocks.

In this morning's local news.


“This survey confirms what our businesses and our footfall cameras are telling us. There’s still a lot of improvement work going on with hoardings still up in some areas of the city centre, but confidence is returning with a big spike in numbers of customers in November and December and that has continued into January.

“Footfall for the first four weeks of this year is up more than 10% compared to last year and last week was up 22% on the same week last year. It’s still challenging for retailers and, especially, hospitality, but overall spend is up as well.

The LGBT+ customers are well catered for. I found a valentine card I liked for my wife until I looked closely realising it was from a wife to a wife.

i think what card factory serves is underrated and underappreciated by the market...i think of all the retail names out there it is understandably misunderstood.

for one the extent of the price differential is so large that fund managers in London probably struggle to understand the gap in demand it feels for its socio-demographic. it does a unique job of being able to create a really nice shopping experience for those on an xmas budget of £100 for 8 loved ones (more and more of the country sadly)...and secondly, the extent of cards buying that is female (to my knowledge it is +90% - this is barely ever mentioned). there is sticky loyal demand here - and its underpriced!!!

So did I and a birthday card. £3.98. No wonder Clinton's struggling. Shop busy with people looking for the right romantic phrase.

I bought a few more yesterday, I know news flow will be a little slow in the immediate future but like others here see it the fundamentals
are the draw card and one big seller provides us with the the opportunity.

nothing emotional about it, but thanks for the opinion.

i tend to view a company trading at a massive discount to any notion of fair value not as something emotional. you seem to want to try and time this perfectly in terms of Teleios getting out of their position...fine. i respect that and hope it works out for you.

i just simply don't care if this gets worked further down...the downside is probably 10/15% from here, maybe more i guess. but the upside to fair value from here IN MY VIEW is 80-100% and this is a company performing extremely well in a sector where that is not the case across the board.

there's no dissonance, I just don't care about the share price downside as a result of the seller in the short term.

Far too much emotional attachment and cognitive dissonance here at the moment.

sometimes mr market throws up the most clear obvious gifts...he gives with both hands in abundance.

this is one of those instances...i take the point from elsa about how this could be walked down all the way to sub 80...but buying at 90p is free future money in my eyes. business is now sub 6x for a company that blew it out the water in UK retail through december / november when uk wide footfall figures were in the toilet. high barriers to entry and an exodus of the rest of the (poor and high priced) competition.

buying with both hands - am of the strong opinion that i'll wake up in 5 years and be smiling.

Elsa

As you say, what a fantastic return someone could make if they had £300 million to invest. Where else could they get 20% return?
Lookout for a takeover, how tempting is this stupid valuation?
Twice the price would still yield a massive 10%

They have to take this into the 40s to shake them out of me.

As of 17 Jan Teleios are down to 38 million shares. They have sold 2 million recently. Until we find buyers that will pick up those shares then the share price will keep being walked down. Eventually the market will find the clearing level. Will it be 88, 85, 80? Who knows. I'm adding as it drops and will buy a lot more when I see their stake has been placed. In the meantime you'll just have to accept it. £62 million pre-tax on a £300 million market cap. Ridiculous hence happy to add in tranches.
