It looks like the big boys are getting interested in the growth opportunity of HFD.

That's correct. (annual dividend 9p per share) 9p÷207p (current stock price 207p per share.)

Does anyone know the current yield on HFD at the moment please? ADVFN has it at 4.3% but not sure if this correct

One of the reasons HFD fluctuates so much is the likelihood of it entering and leaving the FTSE 250. We are definitely in the entering stage which will cause this to rocket. Get on board for the ride.
HFD are entering a growth period with more income, higher dividends, and a higher p/e.

Yes reddirish, todays Capital Markets Day presentation confirms what I said a bit back that HFD can now be seen as a growth stock with its forward looking plan that has been well executed.
We'll be seeing this climb above its previous highs of over 400p quite soon.
This is my biggest holding and I have bought low and sold high Halfords many time over the years. It's a great share to follow and trade with its ups and downs.

I don't have a big holding in HFD, but am reasonably impressed by the Capital Markets Day presentation; so too has the market. The bridge to full recovery over a two to three year horizon is persuasive, especially given they have already faced and addressed the key structural changes in their markets. I just hope they have the chance to deliver, before yet another PE take out! (I also hold WG. and am disappointed that another of my long term recovery holdings is being acquired in the cheap...)

If HFD want to get more business they could do more to improve their customer service - in particular, the first customer contact experience to the local Halfords store! I did this yesterday (I am an HFD shareholder) and the experience was abysmal!

First, calling the website number telephone results in lots of meaningless and long messages, many buttons to press and long guitar recitals before you get to actually speak to someone.

Then, if you do actually get to speak to a human being, a pointless discussion, without any success, to get actually call the local store (this number is not available to the public at all) - not at all successful, but then a promise that they would will get back to you – over 24 hours later this still hasn't happened!

Dear HFD: This is the age of speed an convenience and excellent customer service. People just want to contact a local store with out all that hassle – sorry, very disappointed - HFD please buck up!

Looks like people have been buying budget tyres not Michelins.

At £50mln pbt earnings would be about 23p. At this share price £40mln for next year is a p/e about 10 (earnings about 18p.)

The key is whether the gloom and a continuing recession with the same continuing problems is priced in or not.

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.

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.
