farrugia: AO bust would be one less competitor that had been trying to 'take' market share away from 'Cury' to be blunt. Curry is much more diversified with the Nordic and Greek subsidiaries. The market as a whole is a hellish place at the moment though.
blackhorse23: AO collapse could see revenue rises for CURY
blackhorse23: I don't like AO business policy but very happy with CURY , revenue over 10 billion, profit & cash generating company
farrugia: (Sharecast News) - Currys rallied on Tuesday after markets blog Betaville suggested takeover interest in the electricals retailer. Betaville said people following the situation have heard a "mystery suitor" is circling Currys, possibly a private equity firm. "Readers should be aware that Currys shares are up about 8% over the last five days, suggesting some of the takeover speculation may have already been built into the share price," Betaville said. At 0920 GMT, the shares were up 5.7% at 98.15p.
hillock1: @Tim3, I know you have experience with Currys before and wish to ask you the issue of customer satisfaction.. As a customer and shareholder, I think the management has done a good job in brand investing, shifting to more online sales etc... but the customer satisfaction, which I think is the most essential in retail, seems not very great, judging from angry messages from twitters and 3.6 rating in Trustpilot.. Could you share your views on this?
mikepompeyfan: TEMPUS Currys: Lust for gadgets transcends borders William Kay Thursday December 16 2021, 12.01am, The Times If a high-tech electrical company came up with an international retail strategy based only on the UK, Nordic countries and Greece, you could be forgiven for thinking the board had been playing too many obscure virtual-reality games. But, for historical reasons, that is the mixture Alex Baldock has inherited as chief executive of Currys. A post facto justification of that eclectic spread is it gives the group more clout when dealing with the likes of Apple and Samsung, letting Currys place higher orders. But that has been the least of Baldock’s considerations as he has grappled with Brexit, the pandemic and folding the old Dixons and Carphone Warehouse brands into Currys and its foreign counterparts, Elkjop and Kotsovolos. He has gone for the moral high ground. “Our vision, to help everyone enjoy amazing technology, has a powerful social purpose at its heart,” he says. “We believe in the power of technology to improve lives and help people stay connected, productive, healthy and entertained.” The biggest effect of that on the cold, hard bottom line is to increase what Baldock calls customer “stickiness221;. Some retailers think it is enough to harvest customers’ email addresses but he aims for credit, warranties, repairs, recycling, upgrades and face-to-face advice. Lockdowns and working from home has introduced the public to the whole range of Currys products, from smartphones to 79in televisions, freezers, cookers and coffeemakers. Four out of five UK households contain a product bought from Currys and ongoing WFH guidance suggests this kit is going to play a big role in our lives for years to come. And, while many analysts say phones have gone ex-growth, Baldock sees them as a gateway. “I don’t think they need to be a low-growth category,” he said. “A smartphone is still the most important bit of tech in most people’s lives.” The stock market was decidedly unimpressed with yesterday’s half-year results, possibly because it is only six weeks since the group’s interim trading update and investors were spooked by Baldock’s reference to “a softer market in the Christmas run-up”. The shares have fallen from 140p on November 11 to 111p at one stage yesterday. But the bigger picture is the plunge from 500p since December 2015 in the wake of the Dixons-Carphone merger. At £4.78 billion, half-year revenue was flat year-on-year but up 15 per cent on a like-for-like basis compared with the May-October period in 2019. Pretax profit was unchanged from a year ago at £48 million but, thanks to a lower tax charge, earnings per share rose from 2.8p to 3.7p. Free cash flow was £185 million, down from £499 million this time last year but a big improvement on 2019’s £77 million. Baldock said: “We have had a strong first half. We grew colleague engagement and customer satisfaction, gained market share and stabilised gross margins in the UK.” A £75 million share buyback is planned for next month, along with a penny-a-share interim dividend. And there is more to come, through £300 million of cost savings. Retail is tricky to transplant abroad, particularly in food and clothing, but the universal desire for gadgets transcends that. The Nordic operation fits well, accounting for 41 per cent of group revenue as Scandinavians spend their long nights gazing at screens. Greece is an outlier in more ways than one with only 6 per cent of the business. At least it makes money. Logic points to Currys moving into more foreign territories. Baldock has enough to keep him busy for now, but he admits to dreaming about “spreading our magic dust on a broader range of countries”.

sphere25: Profit expected to be in line but a veiled warning in there. They are setting realistic expectations on the back of continued restrictions (Plan C and even D being cited now) which are clearly now feeding through to affecting short term fundamentals. We are seeing it in cancellation of bookings, in footfall and now in cautious company statements. CURY have cautioned today and JDW came out on Monday afternoon to caution on the effects of Omicron. The supply side issues are well known and we are seeing a spate of regular warnings with the likes of AO., JOUL, STU, MADE and VIC. SCS also cautioned recently and cited extended lead times are putting consumers off too. I am unsure if Boris changes tact on the back of the dissension within the party, but it seems that the Scientists and their models are ruling the roost, so perhaps we have to expect things to get worse before they get better. Looking at BOWL today, they are confident on the medium and longer term future, but have modeled a worse case scenario in the short term; one that incorporates a two month winter lockdown. It remains to be seen how far the powers that be decide to go, but it is looking very difficult to avoid cautioning markets on the supply side, Omicron or both. Who is next? CARD? DFS? REVB? MAB? MARS? RTN? I am a buyer on big clobberings. Once the sales are on, I want to come in and have a nibble because these are all short term issues. They don't fundamentally change things beyond the near term. Unless the consumer really falls down next year, it looks like growth will be ok and rate of inflation growth could be peaking so opportunities are now being provided by the market. This is in stark contrast to earlier in the year when you would look at the multiples and think "I can't buy that!" The market will look through these near term issues and re-rate shares like CURY back higher imo. Clearly the timing on entry can be difficult with wanting the cheapest price, but then trying to not be so greedy as to miss out. The chart here doesn't look great now so it's a wait and see. Beyond the companies that are already beaten down significantly and pricing in alot of bad news (DLAR, RCH, VLX), I think it is hard to buy to hold at the moment (maybe the focus on the one's getting clobbered is skewing my view too) because it is so edgy out there. Sentimental de-rating's can happen and then you have all these near term issues that can cause a short term plunge too. What would really deter and halt buying even with the sale prices and go into defensive mode? Outside factors like the US and the excitable multiples there. Any big index breaches of support could cause a leverage event, which would feed through in an ugly way here, but it is ok there for now with orderly corrections. Some stats: - 77% of the Russell2000 constituents are more than 20% off their highs - 37% of the S&P500 constituents are more than 20% off their highs - 52% of the Nasdaq100 constituents are more than 20% off their highs It is hard to know if this eventually feeds through in an ugly way but clearly the rotation there means they are hiding out in the larger caps - a big shift in power. The market could buy up weakness and off we go again for a party next year! Tapering over four months vs ten months will play a part as will inflation of course. It is all rather intricate. Furthermore, you can never be sure if a collapse in stablecoin or other crypto feeds through to equity markets, but the leverage (note large plunge in Bitcoin recently) out there is intimidating. I wish we could completely detach ourselves from the US! It would be so much easier to be more confident! A cautiously optimistic treading into the new year and next year it is! All imo DYOR
tole: Currys still 'far too cheap', says LiberumShares in Currys (CURY) remain 'far too cheap' for a company with a market-leading position, says broker Liberum.Analyst Adam Tomlinson retained his 'buy' recommendation and increased the target price from 175p to 200p on the electrical goods retailer.The shares jumped 8.8%, or 11p, to 133p on Thursday after reporting first half like-for-like sales remained in double-digit growth. This has given management confidence heading into peak trading season and profit before tax guidance has been reiterated.'A much-improved balance sheet and free cashflow generation means year-end net cash is now expected to be more than £100m and has given management the firepower to announce an ongoing £75m share buyback, which follows the dividend reinstatement in 2021,' he said.Tomlinson said the group is 'entrenching its market-leading position' and highlighted that 'on a current year price/earnings ratio of less than 9x, the shares remain far too cheap'.
mikepompeyfan: Electronics retailer Currys has announced that it is teaming up with ride-hailing service Uber to deliver products in as little as 30 minutes. Under the trial service, customers in 12 London boroughs will be able to order items such as laptops and printer cartridges, with a £5 delivery charge. The three-month trial begins in the week starting 15 November. Currys said the 1,800 products on offer all weighed under 7kg and could fit within a courier's bag. With size dimensions limited to about L46cm x W35cm x D35cm, Currys said the biggest item available for super-fast delivery would be, for example, a coffee machine. Customers can order through the Currys website or app up to two hours before stores close. "The world has shifted to a hybrid way of working and more customers are demanding greater convenience and speedier delivery to get their hands on tech," said Currys' chief operating officer, Mark Allsop. The move echoes the same-day and one-hour delivery options available at the major UK supermarkets and Amazon. Currys said the venture, which will operate from 15 London stores, was Uber's biggest UK retailer partnership to date. Eve Henrikson, Uber regional manager, said the company looks "forward to expanding the partnership further", but gave no more details about future plans. Co-op to start selling groceries on Amazon Prime Shopping in 10 minutes: The new supermarket battle Announcement of the deal was made alongside the release of Currys' latest trading update. Sales in the six months to the end of October were up 15% on a like-for-like basis on the same period two years ago, before the Covid-19 crisis. However, the retailer revealed business remains 1% below the same period a year ago, when demand soared as households looked to update their in-home technology whilst stuck inside during the various lockdowns. There was strong growth in electrical goods, which offset a fall in mobile phone sales. Currys also played down any concerns over supply chain issues and staff shortages, saying it had "put in place measures to mitigate the well-publicised" disruption across the UK. The company was confident enough in its prospects that it also announced plans to hand back £75m to shareholders through a share buyback, news that sent the share price rising 5% in early trading. hTTps://
tole: Currys is far too cheap, says LiberumShares in Currys (CURY) are 'far too cheap' considering its leading position in electronics retail, says broker Liberum.Analyst Adam Tomlinson retained his 'buy' recommendation and target price of 175p on the stock, which was up 1.1%, or 1.3p, at 121p on Monday.'Currys' transformation continues to embed its leading position in a consumer electricals market that is now larger and less discretionary,' he said.'The group is truly omnichannel, taking share both in store and online.'However, Tomlinson said the international business remains 'hugely overlooked'.With cashflow 'materially improving' and a 'significantly strengthened' balance sheet, the current price-to-earnings ratio of 9x means the shares are 'far too cheap', said Tomlinson, who added that his target price could 'still prove too cautious'.
