City snobs are obsessed with Tech. If they actually went out into the real world outside of London they might actually notice things like CARD, take it in, look around, observe.

A third if not half the inside of the stores are gifts and other celebration items now with higher margins and growing basket price. I actually thing their 'Brand Name' doesn't do it justice anymore. Suggests just 'cards'

However with a growing online presence as well the future is very bright. I wouldn't even class MOON as a serious competitor, they have an online ceiling IMO.

Over a 1000 stores, with a virtually integrate production and distribution, and growing online presence, it's no wonder the big boys dumped £25m of MOON shares yesterday.

I notice that Moonpig is a smaller business with less turnover and profit than Card but has a 50% higher market
Cap and on a pe of 15. Seems anomalous to me.

Re: Moonpigs drop..

Moonpig tumbled on Thursday after a number of shareholders placed around 25m shares in the company at 160p each, which is a discount of just under 10% to the closing price a day earlier.

According to Bloomberg, the placing represented about 7.3% of Moonpig’s issued share capital.

Shares were placed by Exponent Private Equity LLP, LCP VIII Holdings, Strategic Partners VII Investments, LGT Capital Partners, GoldPointPartners, K Athena Investments No 40 Limited, Storebrand International Private Equity and Aberdeen Standard Investments prices.

Debt of 140m isn't that big a deal when racking in well over 100m of cash each year.
Anyway net debt is half that.
Plus they have reduced overall debt by 100m since 2020.
They are choosing to invest for the future rather than payoff debt all the debt in a hurry.

I'm expecting to hear about both a dividend policy for this year - say 5p and an immediate buy-back of £15-£20 million. They can easily afford it. News on progress on their partnership negotiations would also be welcome.
See Moonpig down 12% today. Cardfactory now finally seems to be fleshing out and actually initiating an online strategy (I've had 3 emails in 10 days). A large market to go after and a huge customer base means a well formulated strategy should be able to drive substantial additional sales at virtually no cost.
Roll on Tuesday.

I think it would be wiser to put a brand name on all their cards rather than Card Factory . Most of their other cards have their own other brand names on . I don't think anyone would think the person was not a sucker !

I think more than 10p once it reaches the shop and other parts of the process have taken their cut…..but for Card Factory you would be nearer the mark with its vertical integration set up…..paper mill to retail outlet….very efficient, little waste. How this isn’t double what it is I don’t know but hope I am still holding when it’s potential is fully appreciated.

Basically cards in most shops are massively overpriced.
I doubt a card that sells for 2 or 3 quid costs more than 10p to produce.

Card Factory cards are reasonably priced because they are verically integrated and produce their own cards. The quality is not cheapskate and is comparable to cards at twice the price elsewhere.
One should be proud to send cards with their name on the back because it proclaims an intelligent shopper who is discerning and not a sucker!

I go past a card factory shop about 3 times a week. Today for he first time ever they have a sign outside saying buy 3 get one free on all cards . They often have offers 10 for a £ or 5 for a pound or 4 for a pound but these are usually on a single section of cards . I disagree with them putting Card Factory on the back of some of their cheaper offers as it shows the sender is a cheapskate buying cheap cards .

They obviously have a very high profit margin on their cards and can afford a 25% discount but this is a first !

And that would still be low for a company churning out this level of EPS and cash generation. It is outstripping Moonpig as far as revenue, profit and cash generation goes.

Liberum put out a broker note saying they thought it could double. Think that was the reason for the rise initially.
Results are on Tuesday.

And the market has spoken...modest rise, due to impending results April 30th, not takeover talk. But hopefully still a steady climb till we find out the full results.

The heavy turnover and strong move on Friday is starting to look like a big institutional order rather than anything like a bid. Good news of course but not immediately. But you never know

A bit of media speculation, none looks informed. The market will tell us Monday morning.

I noticed the 6% hike in the price on Friday but have just noticed the accompanying volume spike in the header, interesting. Prelims 30 April.

Thought I’d chime in after yesterday as a big (relative to my overall holdings) holder of CF. Good comment below about this not being on the market for much longer…couldn’t agree more. Generally, massively discounted businesses which the stock market fails to appreciate in terms of quality are snapped up at a bargain price by PE. Make no mistake - this business being bought for a penny less than 1.80 would be a robbery for shareholders but I grant that with plenty of other attractive names around, potentially a lucrative way to make a quick buck. Friday may well just be random, although 7x avg volume is pretty substantial.

PE will recognise the opp here. A growing but very predictable recurring revenue stream in terms of store revenue, a huge growth opportunity for online (which I don’t think needs to be pursued but obviously could be), and an exciting opp in partnerships. After revenue comes the highest margins I know in retail, fabulous cash flow conversion and a very unique negative return on tangible equity ie a business which can grow infinitely without putting up any of its own equity - financed by suppliers and landlords. Qualitatively, I can’t think of any other retailer which benefits from such an attractive competitive position, with these two American behemoths supplying the grocers and Clinton’s etc who can only match in terms of quality but charge 2-3x as much.

This has all long gone unnoticed because it just garners scepticism from a city investor base who are male and rich (cards demographic is female and on a tight budget), and will see patient holders very well rewarded. Only positive I can see to a bid is a catalyst to make people see the value on offer…but personally I want to hold this for years while picking up good income while a niche little story plays out.
