Ok thank you
I'm not looking to hold for a long period of time. Rather I trade up and down on the swings. So I have 2 positions. One around 221 and one I just added of the same size around 218. At the current time there is either 'no trend' (moving sideways) or you could consider price remains in a downtrend (although we have had higher lows and higher highs on the daily chart so it may bottoming out). That means that price is moving up and down currently within a defined and tradeable range. I use a 2 hour chart to enter and leave my trades. I think the 2 hour chart suggests a move up, it may not be big but I think it's likely to exceed my position at 221. If I thought a swing high was forming. I'd drop that position at a small profit (223ish seems like a decision point). Judging by the daily chart there is a gap that starts at 240ish and ends at 275ish (see first link). Gaps often close. Today's price action has finished with a hammer (which is sometimes a sign of a reversal; that would support a move to the upside, although price often drops down first but not below the lower candle wick). It's easy to identify a stop (either below today's low or below the low on Jan 10th, so the risk is contained. Looking at the 2-hour chart, there are some odd candles (quite frequent). These start at their low point for the period and bought up from there (accumulation?). Mostly, price continues to rise after the period close after one of these candles, particularly when the 14 3 3 stoch confirms above (20 (end of period) as it has here. Price has not yet broken the short term tl resistance (blue line). I wouldn't say I'm confident, I'm just trading my interpretation about what is happening with the price.
Stupmy why do you feel so confident? Technical reasons?
I increased my position at 218
Kendo - did you receive answers to all those questions?
Also looking stup Not brave enough yet! Juicy dividend tho ex 25th
I've just bought a few at 220. I have tentative signs of a rise to come. I've been watching it from a technical perspective for weeks and have just started to trade it. I closed my WMH positions at 164 in the hope that I'd get a better return starting with HFDs. We'll see.
Matt Davies I think is still the chairman at N Brown,He needs to come back out of retirement and do what he does best.Inspire.Motivate.Engage.Lead.Deliver!
Agree. Matt Davies was if not excellent, then very good.No wonder he was poached. Could do with someone like him again with people skills, knowledge of customer wants and positive plans to bring efficiency to this business.
Kendo your post is spot on. They’ve created a hierarchy that puts people off the agenda. Pretty much the opposite to the Matt Davies days. Cost cutting will inevitably hit heads and I am hearing constantly of good people leaving. That in itself will do more harm in the medium term. Sad to see I’m afraid but as you say it will only get so bad before they have to look elsewhere for yet another change at the top
They should be coining it with e-bikes bit they just ain't I have no suggestions!
Well Toffee old chap,Do you have any suggestions then?I give Mr Stapleton 12 more months and i'm sure if he's not delivered by then we shall see another new face.Someone with 'turn around' experience perhaps?
Come on Kendo - they can't keep changing CEOs - can they? Aren't they on the fourth in three years?
IMO, based on the Graham Stapleton's recent communications to the city via the last 18 months, it appears he is either rather ambitious and aloof or just plain arrogant.He lacks a certain likeable persona when communicating to the city and his cold hard steely stance will simply not work when we seek simple clarification to a simple agenda.Halfords is not an electrical goods retailer or a mobile phone store....I'm a afraid it's different horses for different courses old bean.?Ambitious cost cutting and trimming all meats to the bone will indeed get you so far indeed to pay our dividend but alas I feel longevity of the company will not be protected as a number one priority, imo as humble as it may be?The CEO as I hear is distant from his people and lacks credential skills of simple acknowledgement and motivation on the front line.....?Share price at a 7 year low!Issues with sacking the it dept..system failure for 3 days?Have been to a few stores and queried why all bike departments seem to have no stock at present..?Have also queried why they had no new dash cameras for 3 weeks?Have also been into store and have queried why they have no Tom Tom and Garmin units on display ?Have also asked why they seem to be launching a new promotion every week?IMO it stinks of desperation and does not resonate to their consumer or clarify any clear indication of price integrity either?They now have a new hit man on board aka one "Kieth Lemmon" an ex Virgin man or so I'm duly led to believe.Virgin is 20 years behind the curve of any current business models currently in play.I doubt the great "KIETH" will get any long term tangible results...however if he is like Mr Stapleton I'm sure that he knows where to aim a pistol for a head shot and what questions will follow based towards the longevity around ones career?Tough spot to be in for all middle management at Halfords imo weather they are fields or central based.Imo this is going to go lower before it goes hgher, This ship seems rudderless at present.New rudder or a new Captain?Either may suffice?
I heard all thier systems went down last week...?Something to do with them sacking all thier in house i.t. dept and sourcing a third party provider to do it??Cost cutting continues, lets hope its the right move.
Nearly 7 year low and dividend looks to be secure
Business is going to get tougher here.Struggling going forward, think ot has lower to fall here.
Liberium buy, price target 325. Dividend cover is now far nearer to 1.
Advfn has dividend cover at 1.54 - is it really that good? Well over 1!!
