If there is one advice I would give to investors, it would be this: “Not every Like-for-Like Sale data is created equal.” And Carpetright is one example. LFL is useless if the company sees falling profits and falling cash flow because the business tries to pull the wool over investors’ eyes with LFL growth. LFL growth is easily achieved by lowering prices without ANY REGARDS to costs. Some large firms use this tactic to get rid of smaller competitors. Afterwards, they raised their prices to make back lost profits. For Carpetright, it’s been ten years and there are more than 4,000 floorcovering businesses in the UK. Even worse, the founder’s son opens a rival firm to compete against Carpetright. To read more, click http://bit.ly/2BdAMZQ

Tapi had 4.5m losses in its first year and more than double at 10.3m on its second year. It has taken huge and expensive leases and has no International sales so it takes the full impact of a low ££. I doubt it will survive CPR's refurbishing plans and margin drops. They will both drift down is my guess and take huge hits but I doubt Tapi can survive another year like that.

Was Queensway killed by Carpetright, I seem to recall that it suffered the same sort of death. Tapi I assume takes all the best managers and associates and knows the best spots to open in competition. So, it is just a matter of time I assume that Carpetright has left.

:)Still interesting to see how the company continues to develop as the years roll by, shame the share price is not where it was north of £8 from years gone by instead of strugling where it is curently. Will the share price ever get back to even half of those glorious good ole days? A steep mountain to clmb.Watch out for tapi floating over the next few years!!!!!!Regards to all.K:)

Amazing read why CPR has the right recipe: Https://www.retail-week.com/sectors/home-and-diy/five-ways-carpetright-is-dodging-the-big-ticket-blues/7022082.article First time I see Walsh so positive, the picture is continuously improving for 6 months now and I think the hard part is now behind us. Should be a really strong Q2 IMO but let's wait and see.

Results way better than I expected. Full year went without surprises. But first 2 months: - 2% up lfl in the middle of the chaos of the snap election and a heatwave - EU -1.2% which is sth like 3% up in £, even though a massive reformat of 1 in 9 stores there takes place and disrupts I think Q2 is going to be massively good, the rebranded stores are really picking up.

Carpetright selects Microsoft Dynamics 365 to transform efficiency of end-to-end product journey Today, Microsoft is pleased to announce that home flooring specialist Carpetright, is to implement Dynamics 365 across its 420+ store estate and Store Support Office in the UK.

Dynamics 365 will also join up sales campaigns, field sales and customer interactions, both instore and online, to obtain a ‘single view’ of the customer journey. Using the Microsoft cloud enables Carpetright to consolidate its customer data and use services within Dynamics 365 such as Power BI and Azure Machine Learning to apply advanced analytics. This will enable Carpetright to better understand customer requirements and better anticipate services to be developed as market requirements change.

Bleak outlook for all, inc Mrs May. Anyone who bought at around 250p thinking the long-awaited recovery was imminent should cut losses, IMO as a failed CPR trader.

It's not "a shame it if affected by all these macro-economic reasons in the past year" it's reality

DFS had a terrible profit warning today which is what probably moved this. Short term the International sales booming for CPR will have an even greater % in the profits for the full year. Long term I hope the £ will recover before sourcing raw materials becomes a lot more expensive. Elections and uncertainty needs to finish fast so business can go on. Company still doing great progress on all fronts and it's a shame it if affected by all these macro-economic reasons in the past year.

Consumer confidence declining, inflation rising, income down in real terms: not good for flogging carpets.

Back to 160 seems inevitable. Pity my Hindsight Trading app didn't make me go short at 250.
