Top Dividend Posts

netcurtains: Shops probably open APRIL (HOTC might open a lot earlier as food retailer - ball is in their court) Looks good for EASTER
netcurtains: fullbreakfast: HOTC go right down to £5 for 4 valentine chocolates in nice little box. Chococo cheapest is £9.50 and not so well presented. HOTC has better web site and better presentation and better prices. I know we're in a trading range blah blah but was rather hoping that we should be on a flyer not a downer.
fullbreakfast: As a customer, I found the product better than mass-market but not as premium as some other chocolatiers. Also, online packaging is poor for a premium product. As a chocolate consumer (not a HOTC shareholder, though I might consider it...) I'd be interested to hear who you feel offers better quality at a similar or lower price point? We like HOTC products in our house and the price/quality tradeoff seems pretty good to me. Though the "Sleekster" boxes do tend to get rather badly bent when delivered by Ocado.
phil188: Recently sold my stake in HOTC, taking a small loss. As a customer, I found the product better than mass-market but not as premium as some other chocolatiers. Also, online packaging is poor for a premium product. Fear they may fall between two stools. Good luck to those still in.
netcurtains: The price of HOTC is now significantly LOWER than highs of 2017, 2018 and 2019. So in terms of investment in Chocolate this is a big fall .
netcurtains: bookbroker: I'll let you know a secret. I know quite a bit about chocolate. The best chocolate has to be made with fresh ingredients (especially cream). The best UK chocolate company for fresh produce is Swanage. For mass produced chocolate products Hotel Chocolate is better then most Belgium or Switzerland (they have sat back on past glory too much). Its not the product or the sales. And clearly you buy shares for the future - HOTC is actually open for Easter Trading (probably in March) - its a food/drink seller. So your explanation - as nice as it sounds, is not the correct explanation. I'm pretty certain it more like a experienced trading group in HOTC playing with Trading Range. Gut feeling is when "THEY" are ready it will bounce North big time.
bookbroker: The chocolate is so bland, very little taste of cocoa, even their 70%, over-rated by a long chalk. Used to sell chocolate tools, Italian chocolate, very rich but just the right sweetness to take the edge. HOTC very good at marketing, that is the best aspect here!
toffeeman: May 5th - the Times Hotel Chocolat This chocolatier and cocoa grower moved swiftly to raise capital early at the start of coronavirus, bagging £22 million from shareholders in late March to help to fund growth and to provide a buffer against the coronavirus pandemic. Given that the virus took hold only weeks before its busy trading period over Easter, it also seems to have adjusted to life under lockdown. All 125 of its stores in Britain, along with its four in the United States and five in Japan, are shut; social distancing is in place at its packing facility in Cambridgeshire and, after trimming its range, the company has stayed open for online orders only. Hotel Chocolat opened its first shop in north London in 2004. Unlike most chocolatiers, it grows its own cocoa on a plantation that it owns in St Lucia, where it also runs a hotel. As well as operating restaurants and cafés, the company sells accessories including hand creams, body scrubs and lotions. In a trading update yesterday that was light on detail but upbeat, it said that it had experienced strong demand online over Easter, though not enough to offset a material fall in trading because of its store closures. Analysts at Liberum, the house broker, estimate that just over half of the lost shop sales have been made up online. The company also put in place a new £35 million flexible credit facility, £25 million of which was through the government-backed loan scheme. While the facility is in place — it expires in December 2021, but can be repaid early — the retailer cannot pay dividends. It says good things about the popularity of Hotel Chocolat that customers were happy to move their orders online. Nevertheless, Liberum has lopped £17 million off its forecast sales for the second half to £43 million. The broker reckons that it will be lossmaking over the second half of the year and will announce profit before tax and other items of £8.5 million for the full year, against £20.7 million last time. The shares, which had a modest yield when the dividend was in place, trade for an extraordinary 278 times Liberum’s forecast earnings for this year. Up 2½p, or 0.8 per cent, to 332½p yesterday, they are not for this observer. Advice Avoid Why Has responded well but the shares are expensive
rathean: I like HOTC at this price if it wasn't for its exposure to the pandemic. Will wait for a lower entry point imo dyor ofc.
thewheeliedealer: Hi all, Fairly recently I wrote a Blog about HOTC and have only just got around to shoving a Link on here. I don't hold HOTC (yet) but quite like it and may well take the plunge at some point. This is the link to Part 2 but there is a link to Part 1 at the start. Cheers, WD @WheelieDealer hTTp://
