Finsbury AGM was back in November, unfortunately I couldn't make it this year.

Don't know how much to read into it, but Thorntons reported large growth in their FMCG division. I believe some of this is manufactured by FIF.This area at least should show growth if true.

I only gave two reasons why the shares might be falling. I never said it was the correct response. Shares Magazine has FIF down as having an AGM on Wednesday. I wonder if that is the preclose update.

Isn't FIF a big supplier to Waitrose? I'm expecting to see benefits from the money raised in the placing last year. Remember we were told it would yield an annual benefit of £2m? Along with much reduced debt servicing costs I am optimistic.

I would imagine there are two factors at play here. Profit-taking as we approach the tax-year end and the poor sales figures from the main supermarkets. How much pressure will supermarkets put on FIF's pricing and what proportion of sales might actually be lost as more people shop at Aldi, Lidl and Waitrose? Despite the potential for sales and margins pressures, I think the shares are too cheap.

They didn't expand the Nicolas & Harris bakery expecting sales to be flat.

Well either someone knows something negative or this will bounce on the update. It's on a forward P.E of only 8.7. Looks cheap versus others at the moment. I suspect sales are flat or even down a bit, given low sales growth numbers at the big food retailers, but they have grown in the past and I'm sure they will grow again without the debt burden that was holding them back.

Agree that a trading update probably due this week and I tend to think based on share price performance figures will be flat. At this level though looks good value unless there is a nasty supprise!

It does. On the issue of growth, unless we replace the contribution by Free From, the income stream will decline; however, the outgoings element will doubtless have declined by more given the substantial reduction in debt and its associated costs. Overall, I anticipate an improved EPS and a much reduced gearing, which to my mind indicates a more healthy company in a position to either manage organic growth (my preference) or take up promising minor acquisition opps. In a nutshell, we have regained control of our healthy business.

I am still expecting growth this year although at a modest rate. With EPS 6p+ and little debt, 55p looks a miserly valuation.

if the decline continues, I'm looking to shuffle more money into FIF. There are no fundamental reasons for this share price decline.

Yes, but a lot has changed since then, not least the debt size.

The last time that I bought them they were less than 25p.

Sub-30p would be a ridiculous valuation and there will be plenty of investors willing to buy above that!

I am just glad that I sold out last August (around 70p - unfortunately a little early) Now that it is a low or no growth stock with a low yield I will not be tempted to buy back in above 30p unless things change.

Might as well re-post my article from a few weeks back. Always good to look back over the fundamentals when a share is dropping. http://www.theel1tetrader.com/2013/12/finsbury-food-group-continuing.html El1te

Volumes don't seem to suggest that joey. The fall in the raw commodity prices should come across positively if anything Expecting a fully fledged reversal when it's released (with a little luck!)

There was a pre-close trading statement on the 23rd Jan last year. I'm wondering if there will be one tomorrow and people have wind that the figures don't look too good.

Boffster, I nearly sold some at 70p but decided against it. Now starting to wonder if that would have been a sensible idea!

I guess so, I've been buying here recently, seems a very overlooked company at the moment.

Indeed there seems to have been no fundamental reason for this decline, peeps selling out to buy into more exciting action stocks I would imagine.
