Current leadership in Hfd is awful and until this changes and they start to understand this business better, start valuing their people more and start listening again it is only going one way. There’s nothing to suggest this trading statement will be any good and if it isn’t I suggest GS hasn’t much time left

Either a leak or just sizeable safety sales

Next gap to close is 167.3. Looks like we'll get there.

Upside, downside, resistance...what is true is that HFD's not liked today and I don't know why.

187.6 is a resistance from Jan 10th. No surprise that price is pausing here. There's a gap to 182.2 (daily data). I was hoping we'd close the gap to the upside to 191.5ish before closing that to the downside, but it's possible that we'll see 182.2 first. Upside before downside suits me better as I'd drop positions on gap closure to the upside and assume there's a good chance of seeing 182.2 which would then represent a potential entry point. It's a watching game for now.

We've hit 187.5 this morning, I still think we'll see 191.5, probably higher. 20 week trading update tomorrow so tonights closed period is important. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 30 Aug '19 - 12:03 - 3278 of 3280 Edit 0 0 0 yes, sloppy, sorry. 191 looks likely here. Price will most probably make a decision on direction after reaching that point.

Still livid with that McDonald bird handing out that special divi, and trousering a few bob herself before leaving for MKS, I think it was, and saddling the company with more debt! Waiting for the trading update before doing anything, but 10.3% yield at 180p is sooo tempting. Will this be one of the very few high yielders to prove to have been massively oversold, or not? Will private equity take it out?

I've bought a few back. Price looks like it wants to rise into results (4th Sept). Good sign that it's oversold, but I'm not taking too much risk.

New car sales dropping, should be good news for Halfords - eventually... "UK new car registrations shrank 4.1 percent from a year earlier to 157,198 units in July 2019, the fifth consecutive month of decrease. It was also the lowest figure for a July month since 2012, amid political and economic uncertainty as well as consumers' uncertainty about future environmental regulation. By segments, sales of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles continued their recent decline, down 49.6 percent; and those of diesel vehicles fell for the 28th month, down 22.1 percent. In contrast, demand for battery electric vehicles grew strongly by 158.1 percent, resulting in a 1.4 percent market share, the highest monthly market share on record. Also, hybrid electric cars increased by a notable 34.2 percent. Year-to-date, sales of new car sales went down 3.5 percent to 1.43 million units. Car Registrations in the United Kingdom averaged 154168.97 from 1962 until 2019, reaching an all time high of 562337 in March of 2017 and a record low of 33051 in July of 1992."

Nice rise to almost 177. I think it might retest 166 now. Worth watching what it does after that. If that levels holds, I'll buy.

If there is no decent profit in the actual selling of bikes..then why are they continually on discount at 25%?Do they really think the public is that fickle!They have their brands so why not get the pricing strategy right first time and try and range profits accordingly?You know, like the good old days quality products at competitive prices and then mark down the genuine stock not selling.They never seem to have a genuine bike sale, just tired old promotions trying to follow the rest of the dilapidated high street retailers.Well as for the Car section of the stores, how many radios, sat navs and dash cams can they keep selling in this overcrowded market that is absolutely saturated with cheaper online competitors?Also as the push towards electric cars quickens what happens to Halfords auto centres...would you take your Tesla there for a service...no, I didn't think so.This business has potential in all areas but imo they don't have the potential senior management to unlock it judging by the past performance.You only have to look at the price of Dixons / CarphoneWarehouse to see what happens once the rot steps in?Caution advised, but has potential for a turn around if they can come up with a realistic and measurable business plan.

The longer term chart seems to reflect the consistently reducing profits, on similar revenue figures. Maybe that's why its just carried on down. In simplistic terms, pre tax as a % of revenue has dropped from 7.8% to 5% over a few years and dividend cover from almost 2, to almost 1. I guess that looks to some like a potential threat to dividends etc.

I've had some recently on top of some higher up. imo the price is pricing in a 15% drop in profits (eps down from 20p to 17p), despite them saying that they anticipate roughly similar results to year just gone, assuming the price/retail pressures stay about the same as last year and the weather is average. They did mention consumer confidence in the run up to Christmas, but I'm not sure that the proportion of their revenue from discretionary spend is very high. Hopefully this is in a similar situation to PETS, where the recognition that it had a stable market appeared to be ignored, by the look of it because of broad brush retail worries. As always, broad gloom about a sector does not necessarily mean the whole lot are doomed.

the reasoning is halfords have been making profits year in and year out since i was a kid and i really couldn't care less what happens in the next few months the world is not going to end for Halfords, even if profits do take a hit this year

What's you're reasoning spob? You've always tended to be a sceptic. At these levels they look ridiculously cheap for me too, despite the obvious pressures from all directions.
