essentialinvestor: Yes Fair enough, it was raised as a comparison so just giving a view. I like DC, but would like it a lot more if they were not having to pay approx £80 million a year to plug the pension deficit. No more KGF comment here from me.
essentialinvestor: net, profitability of the 2 companies are completely different, KGF is at consensus £900 million on pre tax this year. DC is an interesting company, but their annual pension contributions are extraordinarily high as a % of pre tax profit.
danb45: buy kingfisher then, why post on DC board ?
sphere25: Raised my stop a tad and it has sliced through it with the price currently at 135.9p. The US is seeing some weakness and it inevitably flows through over here. Had a few go through stops now with AGFX and ADT1 too. Still headed in the right direction but it certainly isn't the one way street it was. The US is wobbling and I'd be watching the IWM over there to make sure key support is held. There are some concerning statements out today on supply chain disruptions, which is continuing the theme of late. More to follow on those. Barring long term holders, having to be more selective and nimble of late. Buy, hold, expect a completely smooth ride and forget about stops - that kind of easy mentality could easily be washed away soon. All imo DYOR
sphere25: Interesting juncture for DC. with the price currently at 138.8p and testing key resistance on the chart, where it has failed a few times before. It is doing a very turtle like move in an uptrend which could be bullish (slow and boring can be best), but volumes are light too so the price could bounce back off resistance if a big seller .....pushes a button from a yacht somewhere. Nibbled a few to try and play the breakout. Stop at just under 135p. DC. is far more liquid (very easy to nip in and out of) than alot of the other companies mentioned and the spread is tight too so also more conducive to trading. Will the algo's push it through to keep the uptrend firm and a profit or will it be a fail and fall back under the stop? All imo DYOR
hades1: Another high volume day.Now 125pHas to be a bargain at this price surely?Where's that private equity!
bc4: Dixons Carphone PLC Dividend Declaration 30/06/2021 5:06pm Wednesday 30 June 2021 Dixons Carphone plc Dividend Declaration The Board has proposed a dividend for the full year of 3.00p per ordinary share for the financial year ended 1 May 2021. The final dividend is subject to shareholder approval at the Company's Annual General Meeting to be held on 15 September 2021. The ex-dividend date is 19 August 2021, with a record date of 20 August 2021 and an intended final dividend payment date of 24 September 2021.
hades1: Shares Magazine - just out Dixons Carphone restarts dividends after sustaining strong trading 30 June 2021, 10:38 Technology products retailer Dixons Carphone (DC.) is restarting dividends after delivering better-than-expected annual profits as an online sales surge offset lost revenues from Covid-enforced store closures. Chief executive Alex Baldock insisted the start of the current financial year has seen ‘continued strong trading in all our markets’ and is ‘more confident than ever in our prospects’. Given this bullish outlook, Dixons Carphone reinstated the shareholder reward by proposing a full year dividend of 3p, though the shares were 0.7% lower at 122p by mid-morning. EARNINGS SPARK For the year ended 1 May 2021, the Currys PC World-to-Carphone Warehouse brands owner’s adjusted pre-tax profit grew 34% to £156 million, ahead of previous guidance of £150 million, driven by a very strong last couple of weeks to the year. While mobile sales declined due to both planned and enforced Carphone Warehouse store closures, like-for-like electricals sales sparked up 14% despite pandemic-enforced stores in the UK, Ireland, Norway, Denmark and Greece. Online electricals sales grew 103% to £4.7 billion last year, highlighting the group’s strengthening omni-channel position and market share gains. The news on current trading is also encouraging, with UK & Ireland electricals in growth year-on-year and international sales trending positively. And Dixons Carphone sees evidence that its markets will be ‘structurally larger post-pandemic, and that not all last year’s growth was pulled forward’. POSSIBLE TAKEOVER TARGET? Russ Mould, investment director at AJ Bell, said the soon-to-be Currys PLC has developed a reputation ‘for having stores that act as a place not only to showcase products but also to help customers struggling with electrical device problems. This personal touch has been crucial to helping Dixons compete against the likes of Amazon.’ He also believes that the work Baldock has done to reshape Dixons won’t go unnoticed in the private equity world. ‘Dixons could easily be a takeover target given it has a net cash position, it is generating lots of free cash flow, it boasts a strong brand in Curry’s, and strategically it has already done a lot of hard work to fix the problems of the past. ‘A private equity buyer could find ways to accelerate growth and push the Currys brand even harder.’ THE LIBERUM VIEW Liberum Capital reiterated its ‘buy’ rating and 175p price target, arguing the results give ‘further reasons to be positive on Dixons Carphone’s outlook and the ongoing progress under its transformation plan. ‘Current trading remains strong with electricals in growth year-on-year across all territories. There are two upgrades to guidance with management now expecting a stable net cash position in full year 2022 year on year and a 3p dividend will be reintroduced. ‘Dixons Carphone’s enduring strong performance throughout the pandemic reflects the resilience of its market-leading electricals offer, and particularly the strength of its online proposition, which we think has surprised the market. With the UK & Ireland mobile turnaround on track and medium-term guidance reiterated the shares continue to look too cheap to us.’
the_grifter: This Board and Management team have no ideas for this business. Their online proposition is poor, supply chain a mess, IT infrastructure at breaking point, and all they continue to do is cut away at the one strength they have over Amazon, AO, and the like;- their stores. AO made £1.5M, yet the share price is closing in on a 5 year high. Best Buy, a true omni-channel operator, has a share price sitting on an all-time high. At Dixons Carphone, the mess this team has made with mobile is being further compounded by the ineptitude of their approach to Technology and Electrical. With the share price sitting in the 70's, does the fact that members of the board last bought shares in the company back in June 2019 indicate a lack of belief in the future for this business. Surely, a strong gesture of faith in the plans for the future would be the purchase of shares at the current low valuation? Surely, it is now time for the Chairman to take a good, hard look at his performance and that of his Management team. They appear lost, and the market appears to have no faith in them.
