Think I'm going to wait until its in a definite uptrend, rather than just a jump. There is what I think is a sensible strategy in place and the auto-services side is still growing. The increased margin on that and the lack of sensitivity to sterling, import costs, material costs etc. is a big positive. Plus the trend of people being less and less practical will continue for ever. (Thank goodness for us older lot being brought up on meccano, so that we know one end of a screwdriver from the other !) The remaining issue appears to be retail profits, which have been in a long, slow decline (nasty looking long term chart, which is reflection of that). If that stabilises and auto grows, then its quite an attractive business. Certainly for what would then be a stable dividend and possibly actual profit growth. I suppose if I'm that convinced I should put my money where... etc. etc.

I don't see any reason for a big pull back. But PI's from higher up are quite likely to start selling, which could give some nice play. I'm still holding about 40%. I'd happily buy back if a pull back materialised, but it doesn't even have to be HFDs for me. I've started buying WMH and 888. I'm also watching sainbury

i bottled it, sold but not at the high seen so far today. i was very overweight. but very happy i bought some at 150s. and a wee top up yesterday at just under 152p. i had a feeling 152p was support.

I've lightened up. Wondering if we'll see 160 pretty soon. Lot of holders from higher might be tempted to rationalise before the weekend.

You're right and a modest rerate is on the cards here. How sustainable that is will be interesting.

I don’t see how the m&s statement (or sainsburys ) is in any way clearer than the halfords one and certainly given the long running struggle at m&s, they have very few alternatives than trying to compete in very competitive markets with no usp any more and no prospect of a new usp. That is simply not the case with hfd. I dont think the difference is that difficult to see but perhaps irrelevant if you’re just trading. Interesting point though about the continual decrease in profits which is not really explained fully.

That would be lovely techno, here's hoping. There's a gap to fill up to around 168 (2h chart). Another around 174

Weak sterling hammering all the retailers, paying for stock alot more expensive now, plus consumers getting poorer because of it. If the brexit sxxtshow disaster gets resolved soon sterling will bounce and these will be doing alot better. Their online offering needs sorting too.

I was stopped out a few days ago and no intention of jumping back in after those results. More of the same, lacks direction and focus when compared to the M&S RNS from yesterday... both struggling but at least with the M&S announcement there was a clear sense of longer term vision and direction.Same with Sainsburys this morning, HFD seems a bit adrift imo dyor ofc.

I bought back what I sold (got just over 153). So yesterdays loss of about 4.5p is now nearer 3p.

Oddly enough I have a limit buy at exactly 152! Rightly or wrongly something bothers me about the financial summary. Decline in revenues is modest (but part of 5 year trend) at 2.9%. Gross margin for both is up by 0.4-1.1% (retail and autocentres). Apparently there have been significant cost savings during an efficiency drive, but pre-tax profit is actually off 15.1%. Why is profit off so much with the cost savings, improved efficiency and modest fall in revenues. It seems that they've been cutting staff etc. Where is the profit haemorrhaging? I've not looked into BOD remuneration. Anyway, as I said before I think if they were going to cut the divi they should have done it in a oner and rebased to 5% as it's not clear that the share price will move to 240. 240 would give a more reasonable yield of 5%. Leaving it at 8% leaves that partciular sword dangling over the share price in my view. I think there is plenty of scope in the service sector and if they worked that well, they could turn things around, but currently that's only about 20% of their mix I believe? I still think it's a trading opportunity and am still involved having retained 60% of my positions yesterday. I will happily buy back as much of the uncertainty has been removed for the short term at least.

Jury still out - seems to be the situation at the moment. However, the strategy requires a bit of thought. At least it isn't based on the old rationalise, cut costs, bang on about efficiency, without any other possible growth area. As with PETS, I think the 'retail is doomed' mantra is not very relevant here - it requires a bit more thought. 'Our particular bit of retail is stagnant, so what else can we do ?' seems more sensible. In many cases, businesses can't find the answer to the second bit. As with PETS, the 'our particular bit' is often not in the same market as clothing, shoes and all the other stuff that is so widely sold online.
