Well results seem to have been received OK but I'm not sure why! Maybe a halving of profits and divis is considered a 'good' performance in these straitened times.

Well that was a nice little tick-up at the end of the day!

Today's warning mean that HEAD is likely to be relegated to the SmallCap index next week.

People will be moving less. Therefore they'll be updating their homes more. For the vast majority this credit squeeze is a mild correction to spending and a signal to not enter a scary financial deal. That does not mean that domestic partners will tolerate a shabby floor-covering.

Their approach to the future is to look backwards ie we have done alright over the last 4 months therefore we are going to be OK for the rest of 2008. Sorry, but I don't find that argument very compelling when you read what the house builders are saying. Just have to hope they put in carpets before their houses sit around unsold!

Yes, I'm a long-term holder so I don't want to talk these down but it did strike me as a surprisingly 'robust' statement in the face of what is happening in the macro economy to claim that sustained (but falling) l-4-l growth in the first Quarter could be projected into confidence "of achieving another year of growth". It's also notable that the European figures, which largely support the totals, are mainly currency gains! I hope they're not adopting the myopic stance of the housebuilders who were putting out reassuring statements right up to the point where they discovered that their markets had come to a standstill. Regards, Ian

Despite today's RNS sales are actually dropping off. Rate of increase for first 3 months was 5.6%. For the first four and a half months it was 4.3% ie for the last month and a half it was 1.7%. It is obviously taking time for people to seriously cut back on spending. Do you think they are going to rush out and buy carpets over the next 6 months? Bovis home reservations are down 70% along with other housebuilders - that has to feed through to floor coverings eventually.

Strong IMS, director buying, cheap, high yield, strong reputation. What more could you want?

Yes it looks solid historically. But what happens when people stop buying carpets and floor coverings because they have no spare cash? I cannot see any case to buy this.

Can't understand why the price of this moves every five seconds or so when there are hardly any trades. Whoever is doing it must think they are going to encourage people to buy or sell, but punters are unmoved. Total lack of interest.

"The group continues to invest in developing the infrastructure, to allow our individual businesses to take advantage of market opportunities. With the management teams of these businesses clearly focused on the objectives before them, we are confident of achieving another year of growth." Oh really? With people unable to get mortgages, credit very tight and food prices, fuel and utility bills going through the roof?

deadly - the stock market currently has no interest in solid reliable long term growth companies. The only thing of any value is hype and as Headlam has none of that it will continue on its downward descent. Their results were perfectly OK but were greeted with a raspberry as usual. But I don't think the outlook for their carpets and flooring is particularly good right now. House builders have lost more than half their value even though house prices have hardly dropped at all yet. For Headlam to suffer the same treatment would put it on 300p.

Now at lowest since early 2004 - and they've done nothing wrong! If there was ever a solid reliable long term growth company then this must be it. It is not in the consumer sector like SCS. I don't hold but I might soon.

From the SCS (sofa seller) RNS today: 'We see no relief from the credit squeeze and pressures on consumers' disposable income for the remainder of the financial year and although our comparable numbers are softer, it is unlikely that we will see any significant improvement on our year to date like for like sales performance. Whilst some benefits from the cost review which we have carried out will flow through in the current financial year, the principal benefits will be realised in the results for the next financial year. Our results, therefore, are likely to be at the lower end of the range of the market's expectations.' If people don't want to buy sofas, do they want to buy carpets and floor coverings I wonder? Hmmm.

had some information from a friend of mine who said national sales managers are trying to get their reps to get customers to bring forward orders placed for July to June to boost figures .... sales in q2 must have been down, therefore if they have managed to hold up orders for q2 to impress the market the knock on effect of q3 q4 could be bad. could fall off a ledge soon as ever dyor

Another positive and encouraging set of results from HEAD. They don't have the trading surprises of many companies and continue to be consistent and reliable performers. Not sure that the share price can move out of the trading band of 500-525p in which it has been sitting for quite a while. Perhaps press comment tomorrow will enliven things.
