Come to have a look as a user of their gift service - selection and delivery fine but possilby expensive though very well recived, however even after the share price fall the valuation is to me very full - Revenue for last year from rns £105M - and current market cap of £276M at mid price of 245/255p Last targets I can find are FinCapp 276 & Liberum (house broker so RTG of) 376. Even without the hurricane effect current price is (imo) to the high side - Remember increase pressure on household disposable income and significanlty increased retail competition. Was significant wind and rain on St Lucia but not nearly so severe as the other islands - http://stormcarib.com/reports/current/stlucia.shtml

Nw99- there's been quite a bit of nervousness in the retail sector recently, but the price drop here has been overdone. The recent trading update showed a 12% revenue increase and a bumper dividend will soon be introduced for the first time. It's a quality company, great product and brand. AIMHO.

Looking at the trade list, and in particular the fact that the ~4 million shares' worth of trades basically all happened in a pretty short time period just after 14:30, were all at a price of 270p and did not change the price in any major way, I would guess that it's a big negotiated trade. I.e. basically a market maker found a big buyer, a big seller and probably some smaller buyers or sellers to make up a difference in the numbers of shares they wanted to trade, negotiated 270p as a price acceptable to all parties, and put it through. It will have appeared as separate reports of trades between the market maker and each of the parties, with ~2 million shares being bought by the market maker and about the same number sold, and the market maker was probably paid by a separate fee rather than a price spread, so all the trades were at the same price - and because 270p was closer to the low end of the 269p/273p spread at the time than the high end, the computers classified them all as sells... A possible alternative is that a single investor decided to re-arrange their holdings and chose to do it through the market, again paying a market maker by a separate fee. I would tend to think that the number of trade reports is on the high side for that, but it's certainly not impossible. Gengulphus
