Well the share price has slipped as expected but I expect if they have started discounting as you suggest, things may be a bit worse than most were hoping for - fortunately I took some profits and I will wait a little longer before buying back in, as I think it could yet slide again due to the present high street problems.

Hi CT - on the Argos website , one item is reduced... It's the "Santa Claus" express - down from £69.99 to £49.99 . So I've snapped one up !! Now , bearing in mind it contains track , controller , engine and two trucks - should I give it to one of grandkiddywinks , or add it to my layout as a semi-independent dockyard spur ? Hmmm....going to have to buy another one aren't I ? Open letter to Hornby....if you did a "girl" version of this I would have to buy a load of them for other grandkiddywinks!!

Thanks 2t - that was interesting. However, the likes of Argos sometimes do the sorts of deals that allow suppliers to put in loads of stock (at their risk), as long as they pay for the advertising in the catalogues and these days I guess online blogs etc. However, it is really good news to know there will be no discounting, as even if there even if they are making contributions for advertising, it will have the effect of getting it out there and building goodwill plus gain sales, which this year maybe very good on the back of Channel 5 TV show - The Great Model Railway Challenge - which the second program is showing tomorrow at 8pm Https://www.my5.tv/the-great-model-railway-challenge/season-1/episode-2 Still with the market as it is, I think it maybe worth holding on a bit before topping up as the share price could slip a bit yet imo

Hi CT - this may be of interest to you . Now , I have a huge amount of Hornby - engines , rolling stock , track , etc . It's a hobby . I have to say that my main interest is is fact building scenery , communities with shops ,dockyards etc. However , I do buy "sets" etc from Argos , as they are normally heavily discounted . Not any more - and I note the RNS's and your comments thereby . If you nip onto the Argos site you will find a fair old amount of Hornby is available for purchase . No discounts whatsoever . As Argos are no fools , very professional , and go for fast turnover.... I can only assume Hornby products are selling well . What thoughts ? JT .

I expect the sales today are the result of the pressure the retail sector is finding itself under in addition to the general depressed state of the market. Though I think the market correction was overdue. Will this go back down to sub 30p due to profit takers jumping ship, before we head towards getting some Christmas trading statement maybe?

The great model railway challenge on Channel 5 coming soon, should result in a huge shot in the arm for Hornby sales this Christmas. This program series will be the trigger to get a lot of retailers buying stock, I expect. Watch the share price rise in the coming weeks imo.

Good question ALS. Answer, is because the bottom line is that the business has turned the corner, and it just needs a little bit of good fortune, by having a good Christmas season, and the share price should return towards 75p+ after Christmas, before then I expect it may reach 50p as retailers stock up, and the rumour mill works away, let alone a possible bid for the business with great brands and a management that knows what it is doing, and on top of that they have invested personally buying stock in the market not many months ago. What do you think the Warner Bros deal is worth? Next you might see a F1 deal or Disney.

Personally I still don't see any reason to hold these shares at this price. In a best case scenario, that is the company recovers to health on current turnover growing modestly the shares are worth maybe 20p. In a worst case scenario the company goes bust. Why bother holding these?

The corner has clearly been turned and the Group position looks stronger as the losses have been curtailed to the extent that there was a net cash position. With deals like Warner Bros starting to kick in and hopefully a good Christmas , and margins increasing things are looking up, and I like the fact that LD is saying "As it currently stands, the trading outlook is in line with the Board's expectations." So clearly back on track since August 31st. The share price might take a hit this morning but I think it will recover very quickly over the a short period of time.

The statement released today is more positive than the last few trading statements and results issued by the company over the last 2 years. We are at the beginning of a major turnaround. The share price will recover out of the 3-year range over the next 12 months.

What a super RNS today, it looks as though it could continue to recover to some of its former highs within a reasonable period of time. International sales should be huge imo.

Excellent news and the share price is threatening to break out of the 3 year range. If it does, doubling up from here may not even take a year.

Back in July the head honcho was buying a considerable amount of stock along with a couple of PDMR`s at prices up to around 37p - so the share price is once again looking like a fair punt imo. The business has a number of strong brands that still appeal to a wide range of enthusiasts, and I reckon that the group and interdependent retailers will be placing decent sized orders for the Christmas Trade at this time of year, now that the company has a leader that knows the trade inside out. DYOR.

LD still adding - his purchase not showing on trades yet.

Yes it`s LD again, and as for being diddled on the price, its seems he needs to change broker but that said, the MM are ready to screw you over on any quantity, more so now as the stock availability will start to dry up until we move to a higher level. As he will be hanging onto his stock and unlikely to sell it until he has recovered the business to full profitability, a couple of pennies will be neither here nor there in the scheme of things, as I expect it will be pounds. I never took up the offer when it was made, and would have come out with a small profit at the time but my holding was underwater until now. As to extended credit, maybe there will be an option due to the size a the facilities the company has - they could obtain cover for this, and it would certainly help the small retailer (whom mostly are honourable people and pay their bills) and provide them with confidence in HRN once again, knowing they are not up against Big Box retailers that have been sold stock at a discount and with payment terms. I can see this being 40/50p within a couple of months.

He has a fair wedge to spend if he wants , he knows its a simple business , if they get supply and pricing right its a doddle , changing the extended terms they used to offer was a big mistake in sales terms , one its likely not possible to correct because of their financial position . edit I think he is being diddled on the price

Wonder if that 116k buy is another director purchase this morning.

At least selling into director buying has given some a chance to exit at what they might perceive as reasonable level. While it also have given the directors the chance to continue to pick up stock at around 33p or there about. Hopefully, the seller/sellers will look back in 12 months time and wish they had sat tight as they look forward to greater rewards. Will be interesting to see if others close to the company continue to pick up stock.

Lyndon Davis buying again - he really is putting a decent amount of money into HRN stock, now holding 313,097 - over £90k worth since last accounts. I am looking forward to the next set of figures, it maybe well worth the wait.
