You would have to be crazy to short HFD and most other stocks with the current positive environment. The UK is going to hit a very sweet spot on the economy in the next 6 months.
Inflation below 2%
Interest rates reduced slightly.
More money in peoples pockets.
A rising stock market which will feed itself.
not guaranteed but 95% certain.

I tucked away a few at 137p. You'll find it's not just Halfords getting hit the UK economy is slamming into the buffers I'm seeing a lot of dividend cuts this year. Just look at the average yield of the Ft250 it's gone from 5.4% yield down to 4.7% that is the tip of the iceberg more bad earnings releases coming

It may depend upon who we buy the EV's from. Who is going to be selling us the small EVs. I assume China. Are the new names going to be setting up a dealer network. They could sell online with a few showrooms and all the warranty work could go through a network like HFD

HFD are rightly IMO selling into the mass cycle market. Leaving upper price points to specialist shops where you can get specialist advice.

I would agree that HFD is a trusted brand but I would also say that a customer on a budget and a little knowledge can get the same done significantly cheaper by an independant garage.

Most shares could be the subject of a bid at anytime so that should not be a reason to invest. Today was a nasty surprise. After so many recent acquisitions there has to be risk of more bad news ahead.

Cycle industry is imploding. Covid boom and bust. Lots of closures and bankruptcies. Stock being cleared at low prices for survival and by those in insolvency. Lots of examples on the TND tread. Worldwide phenonium, not just a UK thing.

IMO the EV industry will shake up the car service sector and maybe the car dealerships. HFD have the scale to be a long term beneficiary.

That could be the divi gone.

Lodge tyre business HFD bought is 90% B2B and has 248 mobile fitting vans so it is not the same as HFD car servicing.
The sudden drop in PBT shows lack of financial controls and forecasts.
Poor free cash flow in the last 2 financial years with increasing debt/ebitda ratio has to put the dividend under pressure or under threat.
I hold no position in HFD, long or short. Just watching.

HFD, that's a huge reduction in anticipated performance since the Q3 update only a month ago. Wonder if they have a monitoring problem in their finance department, I think the FD has a lot of questions to answer.Will be interesting to see mkt reaction, only a small holding for me thankfully

Probably buying as they know a bid is coming again for HFD in the new year ahead?If HFD have a poor Xmas trading results their previous suitor May make a lesser offer then they did in October.Either way, Mr Stapleton is looking for his 5 year exit?Merry Christmas all!

Why Halfords shares just crashed 20%

Having recently traded at a one-year high, shares in this bikes-to-car parts retailer have plunged in spectacular fashion. City writer Graeme Evans explains what's gone wrong and what the analysts think.

A setback for Halfords Group HFD due to tougher conditions in cycling and tyre markets today failed to dent City optimism that the retail and car servicing business is on the right track.

The shares skidded 43.2p to 185.4p, wiping out this month’s strong rebound as interim results tightened full-year guidance towards the lower end of the previous range.

Broker Peel Hunt told clients that the share price weakness should be used as an opportunity as it reiterated a target price of 275p. It said: “In our view, management is doing pretty much everything right to control the controllables and the market will turn in time.”

Counterparts at Singer Capital had a similar message after seeing Halfords grow market share across its four segments of retail motoring, cycling, consumer tyres and car servicing.

It also said that the shift to needs-driven services is gaining traction, acting as a buffer to the current pressure on discretionary spending.

While half-year profits rose in line with expectations by 15.8% to £21.3 million and the dividend for payment on 19 January is unchanged at 3p, the outlook has been clouded by weaker big ticket spending and subdued growth in the consumer tyre market.

Singer said: “This should prove to be a bump in the road as real incomes recover, fuel prices reduce and consumer confidence thaws. A cold snap is also imminent. For this reason we are not changing our target price and would buy on weakness.”

Halfords now sees profits for the financial year in the range of £48 million to £53 million, equating to a 5%-6% downgrade on the City consensus. However, the company remains confident in its mid-term plan for £90-£110 million profits as long as conditions stabilise.

Chief executive Graham Stapleton is particularly encouraged by the strong performance of Autocentres, where significantly improved returns have prompted the company to accelerate capital investment in the garage services operating model.

The group is on track to deliver £30 million of cost savings in this financial year, although the City expects April 2024’s National Living Wage will add £5 million to future assumptions.

Investec Securities cut its 2024/25 forecast by 20% today but has maintained its “buy” recommendation with a lower price target of 235p.

The broker said management had a credible long-term vision to become a one-stop-shop for all vehicle ownership, having set out its plans at a capital markets day in April.

Investec added that delivery of these targets would drive higher profitability, implying a sustainable double-digit earnings per share growth story.

It said: “Neither this longer-term growth opportunity nor the strength of its cash generation is reflected in current valuation, in our view, with the market more focused on the short-term weak macro backdrop and need for better visibility on a market recovery.”
