Nice write up too, comparisons to peers, comparisons to historic price\sales and historic PEs. And highlighting all the opportunities ahead. Let's hope the company who's gonna take our seller reads this (or they may not want to sell anymore after reading lol).

Interesting interview with Cardzone director in retail gazette this morning. They bought 163 Clinton stores to add to their 175 stores hTTps://www.retailgazette.co.uk/blog/2024/06/clintons-worse-than-expected/Clintons new owner admits business is 'worse than expected'18th June 2024The new owner of Clintons has admitted the high street chain is in a "worse state than expected" and does not forecast a return to profit until December 2025.Cardzone Group trading director James Taylor told Retail Gazette: "We weren't optimistic as to what we would find or the condition the business would be in, but we underestimated the task to turn it around."The greetings card specialist snapped up Clintons back in March, which saw its remaining 163 stores join Cardzone shops across the UK.Taylor admitted the retailer, which had 1,000 stores nationwide at its peak, was in a "worse position than what we'd anticipated" and "there's a lot of work cut out and a lot to sort".

Nice interview with the CEO produced by Edison which I saw for the first time today. It was recorded on the 30th April. I don't know whether it has been released previously, but I found it on ResearchTree via an alert. Nothing new, but his pitch inspired confidence in the business.

I think we all deserve a special dividend with what CF have put us all through the past year.

Or why someone else doesn't just buy them. The free cashflow yield must be about 12%.

It's taken them well over a year to go from 20% to just below 10% so might take a while till they're fully out. Really can't understand their thinking on this.

4.5p Dividend is paid on the 28th at 89p that's 5.1%. If an interim is started as well even better. Teilios down to less than 10% when they are out it will go up. Hopefully they stay selling out so we can reinvest the dividend at a cracking price.

I agree. And what is really troubling for me is that whilst good news goes unrewarded by any share price appreciation you just know that any sort of caution in any RNS would likely see the price tank.

It is perplexing seeing this now plumbing its old lows of last year when it's made such incredible progress. It's as though the market doesn't believe them or that they will continue with their growth strategy. Even the most historically sceptical broker (UBS) gives them a target of nearly 30% above here. Very odd.

Close to a 10 month low and heading lower almost every day for the last two weeks. Extraordinary really. May have to buy some more for a trade. DYOR etc

Singers initiation note was extremely comprehensive - best I have read on Card and more information vs. Liberum and Investec. Thought the target price of 144p seemed conservative - they use comparables based multiple analysis which included B&M, WH Smith, and Moonpig. Card has much better margins than B&M and WH Smith (and marks and spencers I might add)...and revenue/EPS growth. yet it is pointed out by Singers that it trades at less than half the multiple. moonpig margins are higher but its growth outside of covid has been poor. singers points out that moonpig and card actually focus on completely different markets/demographics...their valuation in the end doesn't opt for pegging card in multiple terms with these peers, hence the 144p rather than £2 plus.

not much in the report i didn't already know; cards are a resilient product, there is a huge opp in gifting and celebrations, omnichannel opp is unique etc.

singers make a comment that partnerships, because of the group's very ambitious targets in that area, are key to the share price. i agree...and think that they have shot themselves in the foot a little bit. the targets are just so large in partnerships...why they said FY27 was the year these needed to be met, who knows? i just think that given the lack of communication on this part of the business, it may not be reached by FY27. that is a shame as all the other great stuff going on here could be totally overshadowed if they have got their time horizon for targets wrong - the market hates when internal targets aren't met and it doesn't matter how well everything else is going. even more of a shame given how the partnership stuff they are going is obviously really working e.g. the reject shop wholesale model in australia saw card get that outfit get to no.1 in cards in australian within 2 years. its very impressive.

my view still stands: this business would be best served by being bought out by PE. just feels like its perhaps one where the listed markets may never be very kind to it? either way, increasing position down at these levels. the thing that comes through in singers (and other notes) is the margin of safety on offer.
