hawaly: Group Think ....... now who was it that felt the need to defend himself after venturing an alternative viewpoint, to that of other posters on this thread? "Stating an opinion despite what you think is not being a troll. Also if you only want positive posts then that's a naive view that does not take into account others thoughts. Are you saying when brokers say sell or its overpriced they are trolls too? Give your head a wobble." Castigated for an alternative view - and of course the poster may turn out to be right or wrong (who knows the future) but the actuality is that the share price is lower by 11.2% since May 1st. GLA
1novice: Said it for months. Share price propped up by dividend payments. Like for like sales poor
spoole5: CEO buy and share price down?!!!
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.
1novice: Sorry to disagree. Been in this industry for years. Youngsters don't send cards. They use Facebook or just text. There also comes a point where you reach saturation/greed and people rebel. My town has 3 of these if you include the retail park. No chance they are all profitable. As i said like for like ain't great and Internet sales have been poor at best. Only reason to keep is the dividend, which I think the promise of a good return is keeping the share price afloat, 2 bad quarters and that payout has gone But everyone has a different view. As i said I shifted mine a while ago.
fozzyb: Looks to have established a strong uptrend in share price now. 300p first target
aishah: Average greeting card price of 80p against industry avg of 138p. So room for passing on extra $ cost imo.
paleje: Nice RNS this morning, CEO retiring and replacement looks good, all nice and orderly, also confirms xmas trading in line. No warm weather problems with cards:)
mike740: CARD Card Factory PLC Stock in a bullish uptrend channel. More conservative traders/investors might like to place an order to buy just above 389p prev bullish candle, but if the stock looks bullish monday after the first 45 minutes a physical market order may be the best course of action.

dasv: Canaccord downgrade only because share price target already hit. -- LONDON (ShareCast) - Card Factory (LSE: CARD.L - news) 's share price dropped on Thursday morning despite an in-line trading statement from the greeting cards and gifts retailer, with broker Canaccord Geunity weighing on the stock after downgrading its recommendation to 'hold'. Canaccord said that even though trading over Christmas was "solid", the shares have performed well since Card Factory's flotation last May and have risen by 15% since November alone. As such, the stock has recently surpassed the broker's 270p target price - shares closed at 275.7p on Wednesday - prompting it to remove its 'buy' recommendation. Nevertheless, analysts Mark Photiades and David Jeary remained optimistic about the company's future growth after an 8.1% rise in sales in the 11 months to 31 December and 1.8% growth on a like-for-like basis. They said they didn't expect any major changes to consensus estimates for the financial year ending January 2015, with pre-tax profit still expected to be around £73m. "Card Factory floated in May'14 and offers a combination of several years of further space expansion of its eponymous fascia alongside multi-channel growth from the nascent Getting Personal business. "This growth potential, coupled with a strong and established vertically integrated business model and a market-leading low-price 'value' orientated offer in a growing and still fragmented greetings card market, are key drivers of the investment case."
