john09: I might be busy enjoying the rises associated with my 125,000 ALT shares on Monday but I’ll be sure to find some time to trash the share price of this 🎄 🦃 too I’m sure How much have we got off it so far? 33.5 to 27.25 = 6.25p 🤣 or 19% 🤣👍🏼
john09: If you didn’t see the article. A few weeks ago Footasylum had its insurance rembied by 2 insurers. Just like house of Fraser did and Poundland did lol. Basically it means the insurers don't belive it can continue to survive . They didn’t buy into the turnaround plan, they don’t think it’s hot enough cash and they don’t think it’ll make profit until 2021. The insurers would ensure that suppliers got paid in the event of this happening. And the insurers cancelled their cover which is quite shocking . Means suppliers will think twice about giving too much stock in fact probably asking for payment up front. Footasylum is utterly crippled. I have predetermining single share price move this turkey has made and I predict 27p is just the start, so does the house broker btw, so does the insurance company
john09: Haha. The broker says 20p . The share price action says 20p
typo56: Babbler, shorters don't drive a company under, management does. Unless the company want to issue more shares, it matters not to them or the viability of the company what the share price is.
barnetpeter: Paul Scotts view award winning commentator. Ignore at your peril! When he suggests a stock is uninvestable I have learnt to stay well away. My opinion - I always try to establish whether a profit warning is something temporary & fixable (a good profit warning, which might be a buying opportunity), or whether there's something more serious, and structural, going wrong. It seems obvious to me that FOOT's problems are in the latter category. We all know that retailing is brutal at the moment. Costs are rising, and business is leaking away online. Meanwhile property leases are like dead weights - with rents fixed too high, there's no way out from a loss-making shop, other than a CVA or pre-pack Admin. The High Street is entering a period of massive change. Rents have to come down drastically, in order to allow existing retailers to compete & survive. I don't know what lease liabilities FOOT has already signed up to. It appears that management have been wildly over-optimistic in assessing market conditions to date. Is this business viable? Possibly not, unless it can get its rents down, or somehow stimulate demand & improve margins. Overall, I think this share is now uninvestable. Things seem to be going badly wrong, and it's difficult to see what will change for the better. Therefore this is one falling knife that I'm keeping well away from. The bull case is basically hoping that management can turn it around. That may happen, but it's not a very sound basis for investing in anything, unless there's some clear evidence that a turnaround strategy is actually working. The opposite seems to be the case here, at least for now. I wonder if the business expanded too fast? It's very difficult to manage rapid growth, and lots of new store openings. Systems & people often fall over in rapid roll-outs, and there's some evidence of this here. It looks a bit of a mess overall, with the original bull case of a fast-growing, profitable competitor to JD Sports, now long gone. It's important not to anchor to the old share price, and imagine that it's now cheap. The fundamentals have deteriorated so badly, that the 74% fall from the float price still doesn't make it cheap in my view. I'm even asking the question whether this share is worth anything? If it could jettison the shops, and operate online only, it might be worth a look. Trouble is, I'm worried that younger people in particular (FOOT's clear target market) are doing things on their smartphones increasingly, so why would the down-trend in High Street performance change for the better?
john09: Ignore me at your peril. Should have listened when I was informing you what SCSW said about this. Should have listened when I said it wouldn’t be a nap tip, that the share price had got ahead of itself, that it was materially overvalued .. etc Night Scully - fair price is PE of 10 given it’s disapointed and it’s a retailer
scully12345: John what do you think the share price will sink to?
john09: I think the share price is telling it’s own story. Told posters yesterday 80p is a long way from the bottom. This was always incredibly overpriced . Incredibly This will command a PE of 10 at best. Not sure which the accurate EPS is that’s being banded about because there’s a lot of posts here and not all are helpful . But find that EPS and x 10 and that’s where this is going imho
bulltradept: IC View: For a company so new to market, a one-day, 48 per cent fall in the share price just isn’t what you want. But trainer specialist Footasylum (FOOT) – an offshoot of JD Sports (JD.) – suffered just this fate on the release of its 2018 annual numbers. Admittedly, these figures met market expectations, but projections for the coming year put some analysts on edge. Chief financial officer Danielle Davies confirmed that the contraction in the gross margin, down 90-basis points to 45 per cent, is likely to continue, especially as the business grows its wholesale and online operations. Shifting old stock is also a problem, so further discounting should be expected. The board has also changed tack when it comes to store openings and refurbishments. At the time of the IPO last November, bosses said they wanted to focus on new sites. While this remains the case, the group will carry out more “upsizes”;, than previously planned. This will add to the rent bill this year, and reduce cash profits by around £1.4m. However, the market’s concerns don’t stop there. While the board now claims this is simply an “investment phase” in the company’s history, broker Peel Hunt says this isn’t what investors “signed up for at float”. Analysts there are also concerned over longer-term issues, specifically the retailer's relationship with some of the key sports brands such as Nike and Adidas. Manufacturers are increasingly determined to go straight to the consumer, rather than sell products via multiple retail partners. As such, these relationships have been whittled down, and Peel Hunt suspects further cuts will be made. While groups such as JD Sports have a wide reach across global markets, effectively making their position with manufacturers more secure, Footasylum can’t yet boast the same footprint. In the shorter term, analysts at Peel Hunt have trimmed their forecasts for the coming year and now expect pre-tax profits of £5.3m (previously £7m) for the year ending February 2019, giving EPS of 4p (previously 5.3p), compared with £8.4m and 6.2p in FY2018.

vatpaul: hxxp:// Footasylum (FOOT) Retail stocks are out of favour. But Richard Bullas, manager of the Morningstar Bronze rated Franklin UK Smaller Companies fund, says the best way to play the sector is to find those that are on a “growth track”. “We try to stay away from the mature stocks where they’re trying to eke out 3-4% sales growth.” Bullas recently took part in the initial public offering of footwear retailer Footasylum. Run by the team that had success with JD Sports (JD), Bullas says it’s on a store rollout plan and has aspirations to take its current 55-shop portfolio to 150 in the next five years. The popularity of athleisure apparel is fast growing, as shown by the success of companies in the sector JD and SuperDry (SGP). Those two stocks are currently up over 800% and 200% respectively in the past five years. While Footasylum is later to the party, Bullas still sees it as “a big growth area”. It’s solely UK-focused currently, but he foresees a similar path to JD and an expansion into Europe once its UK plan is in place. “They’re already generating a little bit of overseas interest through the website without pushing it or marketing it.” At 201p currently, Footasylum’s share price is trading 6% above its flotation price three weeks ago.
