aringadingding: Can anybody see a good reason why earnings per share should not be 20p, and div per share 15p, in say 3 yrs time, or simply an average over the coming 5 yrs? If we apply a multiple of 12x i think that is conservative, because it results in a hearty dividend yield of 6.25%. It results in a share price of 240p. We could go round the houses forever about online versus physical retail, inflation, ebikes versus cars, electric versus fosil cars... end of the day retail for cars and bikes is real and the internet has been with us since 1996. Seems a great hold to me. Pre covid this sort of opportunity just did not exist.
gswredland: The share price is saying it all here. Most stocks up today but Halfords.... Does not bode well
itisonlymoney: darrin, that all sounds very reasonable until you go and look outside. petrol is £9 a gallon and £100 to fill up an avg car, but what's going on on the street? the roads are full up with cars. i don't see loads of people walking to the supermarket, or walking anywhere for that matter. i don't see loads of bicycles. but i do see loads of cars. on every motorway, every lane is full up with cars. sometimes there's so many the mway slows to a crawl. every urban street moves at near walking pace. three quarters of all households have a car, and many have several. People won't be giving them up. They will all be taking them for an annual MOT and the tester will be failing more and more of them, and they will rush round to a Halfords or some other tyre seller, and buy tyres and services. Halfords has one the strongest brand names. the second hand car market supports halfords where the new car market doesn't so i reckon its revenue is assured. another thing to keep in mind - look at all of the forecasts from the hfd management. they are always pessimistic and beating their own forecasts. amd if tehy ONLY make 65m to 75m that is a p/e of about 5. current price gives a divi yield of 6%. pretty good investment at twice this share price i reckon. dyor.
darrin1471: yump. New cars become old cars, recession or not. Fewer new cars now is fewer old cars in a few years. The number of tyres sold is related to the number of miles driven. High cost of petrol and consumer inflation squeeze indicates less miles and less tyres. Consumers are more likely to be more price conscious. Trading down, buying recycled, driving tyres to the minimum and beyond. Setting up a tyre service is one of the easiest business to set up in for hardworking young entrepreneur. Low technical skill, start up costs and overheads. No research, just gut reactions. Low p/e screams a buy but low p/e often indicates market does not think profits and p/e are sustainable. Current low share price is equal to Feb 2020 pre covid share price. Why was the share price so low in Feb 2020. Apart from a boom in bike sales during covid what has changed? Positive gut feelings. Electric is the future. Bikes, scooters and cars. All need tyres, brakes, bulbs, wipers etc. Electric is a disruptor to change the whole industry. Will the dealer franchise model survive? Will manufacturers outsource general maintenance to a national company like Halfords. Electric is medium term.
yump: I love the personal anecdotal rationalisations for share price falls. The time to buy is when everyone is conflating a poor share price with every negative they can find and various cliches that they've heard - because that is the easiest thing to do. Quite possible that without Ukraine and the supply chain issues, the National takeover might have been seen as a genius move. New cars have new tyres that last for 20,000 miles +. Are more tyres sold in a recession as a result of fewer new cars being sold and people making do (shock horror) with a less than shiny used car ? Dropping share prices are a challenge to whether you actually have any grasp of the business and its market. Much trickier than buying just because the share price is rising. I've never seen ADVFN so quiet. Presumably all the rampers are asleep having eaten way too much humble pie.
jmountain: I agree itisonlymoney. Looks like a fat-finger trade early doors. Halfords made £97m profit before tax, up hugely on both of the lastt two years. Market cap for the whole company is only £350m!!! There's no way this is the right valuation. Should be nearer to the 300p share price that it was in February.
itisonlymoney: this was fat-fingered first thing triggering an auto sell-off. hfd has no debt. the business has £46m in net cash even after all the recent expansion. all the debt shown is lease obligations. 9p annual dividend on 156p share price that's 5.8% yield on the divi alone. amazed this has happened. even low side earnings give this a p/e of 5, which is ridiculous for a profitable business paying a divi with no debt. managment always underselling themselves here too. just managed to squeeze in a little more.
itisonlymoney: amazing reaction to great results. probably caused by a misreading of a few shareholders and then a mechanized dump triggering stops down to the 150s. have loaded up at 156. i expect this to be blue by the end of day and about 240p by Friday. hfd is paying a 4% divi on this mornings price. forecast p/e of about 5. dominant market position. managmnt have a history of being very downbeat on propsects and then overdelivering. gla dyor. share price is stupidly low and doesn't make any sense against earnings.
amt: The share price is following the market and auto related shares have taken a hit in particular.
roguetraderuk: it wasnt a lrg raise vs mkt cap. imagaine if they were to do it now. would cost twice as much to current holders and i v much doubt they would pay half the price for the asset. share price is down in line more or less with uk retailers index. mkt has sold them all in anticipation of a big consumer slowdown. but some will do better than others. i think pure etailers in clothing sector will be hit hardest. those with less discretionary in them and specailists will do the best.
