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.

eastbourne1982: £1.80 isn't far off 40% lower than the share price was prior to the recent update, the update indicated profits would be pretty flat year on year, why do you think a 40% drop in valuation is realistic ?
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.
1novice: Said it before and was slated on here. Will say it again, the only thing giving this an artificially high share price was the dividends. Like for like sales aint great....they will dry up and the shares will drop. What did they float at in 2014?...
luderitz: And another one
wi1l: 10am buys outnumber sells by 9 to 1 - but still no significant increase in share price. is it that we need more volume buys as the numbers aren't huge??
wi1l: Goodness buys outweigh sales by 4 to 1 and the share price goes down. How is that?
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.
