|Made money here but i think it could have been more.
The buyer got a bargain.IDS are throwing off cash at the moment.Nav of around 60p with 15 million net cash.Could have at least paid the small divi.
They will probably sell it on to Argos in 6 months for a healthy profit.|
|Yep, same here.|
|Recommended offer at 220p...not much but I will have it..:o)|
|Looks good to me. If you take out the cash it looks even cheaper.Anyone know about the property? Can this be taken out too? If so that`s £21m of Mkt Cap before the trading business. Please correct me if I`m wrong, looks to good so it probably is . . . .! All IMO :)|
|Anyone got any thoughts ?|
We should find out all we need to know from the prelims which are on Thursday.|
|shauney2, dnfa1975- Im due to meet the company this Thursday and happy to put put forward some qs you have & will respond on here. The credit facility they put in place seems top be a winner and ill find out what effect its having on sales etc|
|Take your point dnfa but people will allways spend.Especially my mrs.
Anyhow!Can we read anything into them changing the prelims?
Stated in the last trading update they would be in early March.|
|Sainsburys statement didnt tell us what we dont know
Chief executive Justin King said the trading environment was tough and said consumers were feeling squeezed.
Mr King said customers were "facing fuel price inflation, uncertain employment prospects and government spending cuts".
All cant be good for IDS imho|
|Boredom setting in again as it does with IDS, actually held up rather well in the wider carnage the past few days i reckon. Still hoping the results set things alight again here, any day now...|
|Does IDS get much stuff it sells from Japan?|
|Sitting right on a near 2 year steady upward trend here, results now very soon.... reckon next leg up could be good for 250, maybe more if news of sale of company?

|Still looking firm here ahead of the results early next month, hope we stay that way, ready to rise...|
|I don`t think Simon`s suggesting they`re buying anyone, but I agreew they`re probably going it alone. IMO :)|
|They aren't buying anyone, they're going it alone|
|12 July 2010
"The Board of Ideal Shopping Direct notes the recent press speculation regarding a potential sale of the Company. The Board confirms that it intends to undertake a review of its strategic options, which could include a sale of the Company."
You'd think they could thrash out a deal within eight months, maybe IDS can seal a deal which can be announced with the Prelims next month.|
|It makes sense for Argos to buy IDS, price 250p to 300p.|
|I hear Argos are moving into the TV Shopping business|
|I trimmed quite a lot as there's faster stuff to chase and I'm not sure what premium there will be on this sale, and these were drifting lower - results in March should reveal more.
|Just about ready for the next move up on the chart I'd say and with their results due early March - surely going to be good imo
Maybe also be news on about the possible sale of the company too. Not forgetting the cash balance 2nd Jan was £14.7M - a 1/4 of the current market cap - and they may have added to that too! ex-cash these must still be on a low single digit p/e|
|I think these would have been posting a decent 'ahead' statement had it not been for the snow imo.
|Was quite busy this afternoon but looking at the numbers now I have time:
H1 had 56.5m sales.
H2 last year saw sales of £56m. If sales in H2 are up 8.6% then they have done £61m sales in H2 - that's £117m as you say Foxman. Forecasts are for £114.3m so looks like they are slightly ahead indeed.
Why companies can't just spell it out in a statement like that beats me.
Anyway, that's a decent turn out imo.
