kendonagasaki: Toffee, you may have been right here...?My 3.48 is underwater slightly.Why the sudden drop?Looks like the city does not approve of the rudderless approach of having no retail director as we go into the the most busiest time of the year.Jill needs to get off her behind IMO and find one sharpish.........the share price is where it is due to a sudden lack of confidence.I wonder why???????If ever a company needed a white's now?!!!!!!!
nick9013: I'm going long, the news may not be good, but the low share price will be highlight I think witch won't allow for that sort of movement
kendonagasaki: Interesting to see Jill has capitulated her authority and wisely purchased the appropriate competition and looking at the fundamentals, may I say at a rather jolly good price below long term NAV.I feel also IMO that the Wiggins deal will open them up to very 'high end lucrative junior market' and what parent wouldn't want them to buy into the dream of dreaming?The ex CEO made a mistake IMO when he announced that the car parts and auto acc's etc, etc were dying and bikes would be the future......Looking back he didn't really have a clue about the auto business and hinged the virtue of future share price improvement, on the whim that cycles would vastly improve.He has left the company with a lot of capital commitments IMO and did not follow through or divulge how the auto centre side of the business would differentiate its own identity in the future.I'm awakened that Jill has heightened the awareness for immediate improvements and cost cutting that she was unfairly landed with and has so far, operated like a focussed CEO and her current commitment as far as I can see can not be faltered.I still not convinced on the auto centre business, and IMO that should be sold now at the top dollar we can get for it, I may be wrong but that's just my viewpoint.I also can not see a great visionary improvement whilst we still have the former retail director from Matt Davis's era, Rob Swyer still with a hand on the tiller.IMO new blood is needed in that arena and I'm sure IMO that Jill will also be aware that old dogs can't learn new tricks, sometimes they can...but the future of Halfords needs more than sometimes.If a good summer UK weather pattern holds and the Tour de France and Olympics go well along with Jill's moving up a gear or maybe two I see this well above the £5 plus mark within the next 3-4 months.Carry on Jill.....I like it!
quilarvium: I think things are worsening for HFD. If bikes were falling and sales lacking in peak summer time, they must have totally fallen off a cliff now? All that strategy built around growing the bike business as the auto side had peaked seems to have come unstuck.......hence the reflection in the share price.I too am not convinced that Jill McDonald and the retail director Rob Swyer make the greatest of tag teams, I'm surprised RS is still in the business as he was with the former CEO "show me the money" Matt Davies at PETS at Home and HFD and how long before he goes to Tesco?I reckon sooner rather than later....if the rot continues to embed its self into the Xmas trade then bike sales will be devastatingly below par on a like for like basis and then someone's head will need to roll.More dynamic action needed by the CEO IMO.
cockneyrebel: An over-reaction in the share price imo. "Trading in all other areas of Halfords Retail remains strong and in line with, or above, expectations, particularly Car Maintenance where Parts was a standout performer. Customer service metrics continue to improve. Actions in Autocentres continue to drive profitable growth. " The Autocentres are by far the bigger piece of the business and the fact they are making up any weakness in cycling is a testament to their strength imo. 3.5% yield too and nice buy point on the chart imo - free stock charts from
cockneyrebel: Takes 12-18 months to see tangible results from a new board Kendo - but the share price will react far sooner as you've seen recently, imo. Wait till you see real tangible results but I suspect these will go higher before you do imo. CR
kendonagasaki: I would say the CEO leaving is a big deal IMO, I mean.... Just look at what happened to TESCO since Terry Leahy left?Total obliteration and destruction of the share price!Some question that Terry's timing was perfect as he knew TESCO was stretched to breaking point over the years and he handed the sinking ship to his successor????Some say it was simply his successors doing?Matt Davies had implemented a 3 year turnaround plan at Halfords, this was to borrow more money from the banks, lower the return of dividend to halfords investors and throw loads of cash at the training and development side of the business as well as rebranding and refitting stores and not forgetting the huge investment on TV and Radio advertising???He was also going to do something with the AutoCentre side of the business but I can't recall what it was.....?Looking at the curve over the last 30months Matt Davis joined the business at the time when halfords had actually turned the corner, they just had the best 2nd quarter and year half results on the back of Tour de France with Wiggo winning it and flying the flag for UK cycling enthusiasts.Matt has kept the business moving and growing with his " getting retail into gear" plan.I would like to know where we really are with that plan?Was it worth it?What's the real impact of it?How much is it really costing?How much more profitability has it generated?But the thing with any plan is if your not going to be hear to see it through and its full execution it is not a plan anymore.If I were a director at Halfords I would be more than aware a new CEO will also have a new plan and as sure as night us day he will also have some idea of who he will wish to bring in with him to for-fill his his execution of this plan.The new CEO have some idea of who will have to leave and who can stay. Think back to how many Matt bought in and those he let go to ensure he could execute his plan.You all know my thoughts and opinions on the matter.Matt should not be allowed to stay until April.A new CEO needs to be found that will have his own plan of solid execution and one that will stay the course to see his plan through. I say be judged on what you do and not who you are!Matt Davies is not a bad CEO, we will just be unable to judge his results?However the share price is a lot further than where it was when he started, and he purchased about 650,000 shares when he joined as his commitment to the business.Well his commitment to the business gas been proven to be null and void.However the done £790k profit from his share purchase should be recognised. So a well done to Matt for his business acumen!
nigelmoat: Share price looking good in the run up to results. I heard a different story re pre Xmas deliveries that they were so busy logistics just couldn't keep up.
nigelmoat: Great buying opportunity. Complete overshoot with the share price fall.
kendonagasaki: Look at halfords website!They are giving stuff away.They look as if they are trying to compete with Amazon?Big mistake.However going into one of the branches to asses the status quo, I was quite shocked to see many items at a different price to the online price.I queried it with a member of their staff and was told "yes they knew that and the staff just price match it to the web price???"I think they need to review the online pricing architecture whilst making it clearer to the consumer who shops in store that they will not get unfairly treated if they have not perused their web site prior to arrival to their stores.So to me that indicates these web only offer deals are a sham because the stores will just price match it.Remember this QTR must be about Margin growth it will be vital to sustain the share price.If not I'm calling £4.
