eastbourne1982: Share price should be £2.80 - £3.20 imho. I'd say that is a realistic yet unambitious price to aim for over the next 12 - 18 months.
walbrock82: Studying the Card Factory, I think the shares are oversold, given it is paying a dividend yield of 12%. Next year, management decided to cut the special dividend in the range of 5p-10p, instead of the 15p. If the ordinary dividend of 9.3p is unchanged, then the yield falls to a high of 8%. The other reason for the share price falling is the fall in profits. For more daily analysis on the Card Factory, along with Mission marketing and Belvoir Lettings results.
eastbourne1982: The market at the moment is pretty dire for retailers however given the update in Jan 18 and the subsequent share price fall I cannot see how these results and solid outlook cannot be seen as anything other than positive. I do wonder if CARD will be a takeover target now, could be a decent buy for someone like Walmart or BME. Someone like BME could keep the CARD shops but also add significant sales areas into their existing outlets, if I were at BME I would be looking at this very closely. Current market cap is circa 650 million, 1 billion would probably take this out, hardly expensive for a business regularly doing circa 90 million in free cash flow.
marksp2011: A mixed bag Special divi cut and the debt to sales ratio is rising which isn't so good. Cutting the special to 5-10p from 15 will help with that. No excitement in 2019 2020 financial year has different currency hedges so things should improve then So forecast 8.6% yield looks like it at a 190p share price 6% gives a share price of 270
1novice: High streets are dying and this is reflected in the drop in share price of this and other high st. brands, it's dropped by a third in 3 mths.
mattcookson: LIBERUM UPGRADES CARD FACTORY AND SUPERDRY AFTER SHARE PRICE WEAKNESS (ShareCast News) - Card Factory and Superdry got a boost on Wednesday as Liberum upgraded both stocks to 'buy' from 'hold' in a note on the general retail sector. The brokerage said it was bumping up its rating on Card Factory following share price weakness after the stock dropped more than 30% since the company's last update in January. "Whilst it was disappointing to downgrade numbers in January, this needs to be set in the context of cost headwinds (FX, wages) and ongoing investment into the group's systems and infrastructure. "Card Factory's deep vertical integration, established over many years, has created sustainable, long-term competitive advantages. It supports a disruptive value proposition, best-in-class margins, high returns on investment and prolific cash generation, which allows for both disciplined reinvestment and a sector leading, sustainable dividend yield." Liberum currently has a price target of 240p on card factory.
yump: How come poundland is so successful ? I really don't know why anyone who decides to invest on the market, doesn't read up about market segmentation. Without that, might as well forget about understanding anything that happens that might affect a business. I'm still on the fence here. imo no reason for any significant share price growth above a rating of about a p/e of 10 if there's no profit growth, but there's a very good case for taking the dividends. The share price might go up if funds buy for the dividends of course - they can push ratings up even in companies that are not growing profits, as long as the dividends are reliable. That's my middle ground as I don't feel the need to split neatly into good and bad.

bighairyspider: In this mornings trading update CEO Karen Hubbard comments "We anticipate that the combined impact of foreign exchange and wage inflation in FY19 will result in GBP7-8m of additional costs" As at 31/5/16 before the referendum the pound was worth 1.4485 USD. This time last year 1.22 USD. Today 1.35 USD. Hubbard said the same last year but over that time the dollar has steadily gained on the pound so am mildly sceptical she continues to cling onto this as a burden. With regards to wage inflation, assume she means the national minimum wage. Card Factory are poor salary payers, I understand that. One of my other holdings, Wetherspoons CEO Tony Martin said the same in 2016. For the majority of his staff the same applied. Shares were around £7.40. Today £12.46. Admittedly a different business model the impact of the minimum wage has been absorbed and the share price a lot healthier. In todays announcement I welcome the increase of "total year-to-date sales growth of 5.9% (11 months ended 31 December 2016: +4.3%) & Year-to-date like-for-like store sales growth of 2.7% (11 months ended 31 December 2016: +0.4%), with solid performance over the Christmas trading period" but there doesn't appear to be any strategy for Card Factory to respond to increases in the minimum wage, and will only snowball when the next increase comes. Ergo my confidence in Hubbard to manage this is waning.
garycook: Celebrations specialist Card Factory is in line to benefit from the impact of rising inflationary pressure in Britain on shoppers’ wallets, driving demand for its cut-price cards, banners and other cheery merchandise. The retailer saw revenues rise 4.3% during the year to January 2017, it announced this week, to £398.2m, or up 0.6% on a like-for-like basis. This pushed underlying profit before tax 3.8% higher to £85.1m. And Card Factory is rapidly expanding to meet the needs of cash-strapped shoppers and increase its share of the budget sub-segment. The opening of 51 new net stores last year took the firm’s total to 851, and the company hopes to eventually boast a 1,200-strong outlet network spanning the UK and Ireland. Card Factory plc Sell: 271.70 | Buy: 272.10 positive 4.60 (1.72%) Graph. The City expects Card Factory to suffer a 1% earnings slip in the fiscal 2018 as the costs of its ambitious expansion weighs. But the greetings great is predicted to roar back with a 6% rise in the following period. And these projections result in very attractive P/E ratios of 13.9 times and 13.2 times respectively. I reckon this leaves plenty of scope for Card Factory’s share price to rise.
