aim, would agree re. the sofology acquisition, however not on numerous new store openings. Focus should be on maximising returns from existing outlets. No position atm.

Short here - operational gearing will look unpleasant in reverse. Reliant on an over extended consumer even without more of a slow down. Pretty goods odds for lights out under a bad brexit scenario.

2018 is going to be harder than this year so I see no reason to buy. The second half maybe x 2 gives us next years numbers? That is if the fall off has stabilised?

the acquisition of sofology sounds like a very good idea, and the debt refinancing. DFS is going to come out the other side of this economic downturn stronger and better positioned, but current trading really isn't good. If this downturn worsens or continues for the rest of this year or longer, we could have another warning. I will consider adding for the long term below 200

What strikes me is the emphasis on new space addition. Is this the time in the cycle to add significant new space?. I don't think it is, just imv only.

Is it all doom then?... Think stats will be tweaked to keep rates low for longer to counteract the debt binge...unless of course if one of the western currency collapses...BOE have snookered themselves keeping rates low for so long keeping the economy afloat with the aid of QE in the process property prices have gone to the moon in a relatively short period...

for those that are interested go to ennismore website (they wrote a thesis on dfs in april) it details why it might be worth a punt. Ennismore are shrewd operators imo. Obviously they got it wrong near term but nonetheless provides a cogent argument why it might be worth a punt. I have punted this am as a result!

Avoid. This is not the DFS of old as PE stripped it before float. Slow down/recession coming.

definitely an unfortunate trading update but i don't see the point in panicking with everyone else at the stage. Doesn't sound company specific, just a very weak UK trading picture over the crucial Easter bank hol period. The time to panic would have been a few days ago ! :) Last time DFS went through a UK recession, its market share in UK sofas went from 18 to 24%. They have the strongest balance sheet with the most flexibility. Even without a special dividend the yield is 5%.

The British Retail Consortium’s study of shops’ sales found growth slowed to 0.2pc on the year, a substantial slowdown from the strong Easter spending in April. The BRC also found a slide in spending on most other categories, including home accessories, health and beauty, furniture and clothing, matching some parts of Barclaycard’s database http://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2017/06/05/brits-splurge-entertainment-cut-back-elsewhere-prices-rise/

MOTLEY FOOL Checking my watchlist of big dividends, I see DFS Furniture(LSE: DFS) as a very nice cash cow, offering tasty dividend yields that should exceed 6% -- shareholders got 5.1% last year, and analysts are expecting 5.9% this year and 6.4% next. Special dividend And this year, while lifting its interim dividend by 5.7% (and well ahead of inflation), DFS announced a special dividend of 9.5p per share. Chief executive Ian Filby spoke of the firm's "continued good sales growth and strong cash generation reflecting the successful implementation of our proven growth strategy" and said he expects "long-term profitable growth". In its current public incarnation, DFS was only floated in March 2015, and just a little over a year later its shares were hammered by the EU referendum result. Since then we've seen a bit of a recovery, but at 275p the price is still up only 8% since the IPO, and I think that's providing a good buying opportunity. We're looking at forward P/E multiples of around 11.5, and I can't help attributing that in part to weak sentiment surrounding the UK economy and discretionary spending as we hurtle towards Brexit. But I see it as overdone. DFS is very good at selling its goods, is strongly cash-generative, and has a policy of rewarding shareholders through dividends and share buybacks. It looks like a good time to lock in an attractive long-term yield to me. hxxp://www.aol.co.uk/money/2017/05/31/two-6-dividends-that-could-help-you-become-a-millionaire/

3 weeks until the big dividend. I also expect DFS to cope well with any broad market slowdown, because they have continually taken market share and online sales are growing strongly. They also will still benefit from the Dwell integration and expansion.
