yes, sloppy, sorry. 191 looks likely here. Price will most probably make a decision on direction after reaching that point.

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.

Shouldn't this be an issue of taking out the variables that are not business-related and then looking at the business prospects. ie. for starters, remove the weather - otherwise may as well never buy any stocks that are influenced by it. Also I don't believe this business is influenced much by any sort of structural decline in its markets, unless you believe that it comes under some sort of 'high street' label, which I don't because the consumer spend at HFD is mainly a maintenance spend or an 'enabling' spend eg. roof racks. Bikes are discretionary spend, although under pressure from petrol costs, squeezed personal budgets, congestion charges etc. you would expect sales to hold up reasonably even in a consumer downturn. What is definitely going to hit HFD ? Sterling imo for imported stuff, because they're not importing parts in order to manufacture something and then export the finished product where overseas sales in $ get converted back to £ for a nice FX benefit. Also possible (Brexit) supply issues - depending on what comes from where. The bikes all come from Taiwan/China I believe.

What this business needs imo is a private hedge fund to take it out and install a real senior executive team.By real I mean, living in a real world of normality and one with a vision of extracting a profit.7 months months left for the current CEO imo.More worrying for investors here is that they are pursuing consumers to get into interest free debt......run by KLARNA who would imo give a blind man with out a job a loan to buy a blind dog for 10k?When are they going to sell mobile phones?SELL

I wonder whether the recent drop is because of sterling. All (?) of the bikes and parts are imported. For parts they can just up the price because you can’t do without them but for the bikes...?

Well there's a big shortage of mechanics around who can handle e-bike repairs, especially the electrical side, so I reckon there's a market there for the taking, assuming they actually train a mechanic enough to do more than change a chain.

They should be coining e-bikes. Firms let staff buy them via salary sacrifice.

I agree, they cant turn a profit on bikes and July will follow even weaker high street retail index than June.And june was bad for a lot of retailers?
