The Daily Mail says in an article today motorist are walking more and driving more carefully to cut down on fuel and there will be less maintainence needed on a service for things to go wrong i.e. replace brake pads and less wear on tyres. Https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10953487/Motorists-driving-slower-walking-bid-save-money-fuel-costs-continue-soar.html There is no doubt about at the cost of living crisis will impact all retailers and there is worse to come. I cannot think any company can accurately predict their profits going forward. Even Mattalan is struggling after shedding 70 jobs they haven't made a profit and they are discount fashion and homewear Https://www.retailgazette.co.uk/blog/2022/06/over-700-jobs-lost-at-matalan-despite-sales-surpassing-1bn/ They also have to replace £350 million of debt by next January and the debt market drying up Https://www.retailgazette.co.uk/blog/2022/06/matalan-must-replace-350mn-of-debt-by-january-to-continue-trading/

Matt Britzman, equity analyst at Hargreaves Lansdown, said falling demand and "significant" cost inflation were being blamed for the expected to 23% fall in profits next year. "With a cost-of-living crisis hitting consumer wallets, demand for higher ticket items is heading for trouble and we’re seeing a continued unwind of some of the lockdown tailwinds, such as the cycling boom that helped performance last year. "Halfords are in the midst of a strategy change and several acquisitions have helped push motoring revenues up to around 70% of total sales. "The less discretionary nature of motoring services should help give some protection from cash strapped consumers closing their wallets," Britzman explained. "However, the pain is coming a little too soon, with a number of newer acquisitions yet to be integrated and the new strategy still a way off being complete.”

hamham, Both darrin and Itisonlymoney have put up some good arguments. Darrin has a fairly good take on retail and so do I, Debenhams had a good dividend yield until they went bust and I predicted Debenhams would go bust a year or so before they did so ! You have to be careful of geting caught up with a value trap share. I am not saying it yet but the market is wary. Chart looks awful and market is screaming another profit warning going forward. Having scanned some of their results they appear to have done a lot of sale and lease back hence the net debt position taking account presumably of long leaseholds ? Nearly all retail is having a bad time lately and the reason is obvious consumer spoend is drying up, consumer confidence the worse for 50 years, don't take my word for this just read this link, and have a look at the chart: Https://www.taxresearch.org.uk/Blog/2022/06/24/the-data-is-clear-the-uk-is-heading-for-a-recession-if-it-is-not-already-in-one/ Looking at the company profit predictions the share looks oversold, but I wonder? Consumer spend is drying up and I mean drying up, petrol is sky high which means less cars on the road, less mileage means skipping a service as well as less tyre wear on the road. The UK is looking at a very bad recession, many like me think we are already in a recession and it could be worse than the financial crisis in 2008 ! Profits will fall so the present pe of 5.32 is misleading, just how much the company will make is another matter. Another thing corporation tax will go up next year which meams less eps, no one thought about that going forward because retail is going to be difficult for more than this year? At the moment the stock market is littered with single digit pe ratios because the companies aren't going to make the same profits. One more point EVs are going to be comming more and more popular but many a dealer doing up-front servicing costs for 5 years and I think most new cars bought the consumers will go to a dealership to have their cars serviced. I will conclude with saying I have mixed feelings about the company at the moment and I was also drawn to looking at the company haven fallen so much but is it a value trap?

Looking at previous RNSs, are they in the habit of selling their freehold and leasing back, great for one years accounting buy then a lease burden forever.

Is it just lease debt or 344 debt after removing the lease debt?

Itisonlymoney, i am looking at these, you seem quite level headed, they have come down a lot, saw you post saying they have no debt, then looking at recent RNS and it said they did have, am a bit confused? "It ended the 52 weeks to 1 April with cash of £46.1mm, but overall net debt of £344.9m after IFRS 16 lease debt"

Only speculation but JPMorgan dropped below 5% on March 18th. They then had about 10m. They may have used the higher volume around results to clear remaining holding.

Setting up a tyre service is one of the easiest business to set up darrin. it used to be. i started a garage inc a body and tyre shop about 10-15 years ago and it was so much easier then without all of the h&s training and now environmental/disposal issues you get today. i would agree and say its so much easier to do a black market tyre fitting shop based on used tyres, but eventually youll be shopped by taxing competitors and rightly so. the guy that bought it off me had to close down due to environmental costs and turned it into a detailing spot which to be fair is going better for him but he is cutting corners here and there from what i heard. back to hfd looks like that vaccine gap needs to be filled.

Wouldn't be surprised if PE swooped but see little chance of them going bust this time - pretty solid balance sheet will see them through any downturn.
