alphabeta4: This may be a bit left field but I think this has an outside chance of being a takeover target. Finish line was on PE13 with flat revenue and JD's forward post acquisition goes down to 12 with £200m cash to be generated so from Peel saying the post acq start position was £50m debt add £200m gives £150m) for a cash adjusted pe of c11.4. That can't last IMHO - either the share price goes up or on 20% earnings growth again the forward pe drops to 9.5!
michaeljames1: Do we have any future forecasts of revenue? It's taken big hits in the share price and I got out around 400 about 6 months ago but it's been such a solid investment for me previously I'm looking for a re-entry point. The interims were very positive and if they can deliver then there's potential for an EPS of 20p plus which gives a PE of 15-20 based on an share price of 300-400p. This seems very reasonable considering the financial state the business is in as well. This is the most active forum, which is better than the ones where's there's a new post every 2 minutes but I do like to see other investors or potential investors outlook for the company.
hawaly: "JD Sports to ease jitters with sales jump" "Despite the concerns about the health of the wider athleisurewear market, analysts still expect JD Sports’s half-year sales to top £1bn, an increase of 30pc. The City is generally expecting pre-tax profits to have risen by more than 21pc to £94m. “A marked decline in the share price over the last quarter is unwarranted, in our view, with a perceived increase in possible competitive pressures from the likes of Amazon, as well as the likes of Asos and Sports Direct,” said George Mensah, analyst at Shore Capital. “We see the company as one of the strongest plays within the retail sector, and see recent share price weakness as an opportunity for investors to buy stock.”" GLA.
martinc: I suppose people were almost expecting them to be ahead of expectations, and I think the share price was anticipating that forecasts will rise over time. Wish I'd sold some up at 450p of course.
alphabeta4: I've done some detailed SPD research this morning - their warehouse problems led to a c£10m 'hit' for their policy to then pay above minimum wage, I've been trawling through a lot of articles but I can't see them ending up with big back pay costs and from JD's press coverage only 30% of the workers are Assist Recruitment which is where I would suspect the problems are most likely to come from. The site in question employs 1500 workers who work 4 days on 4 days off so average of 42 hours per week. If to be cautious these were all full time (obviously not the case as some seem to work on zero/minimal hours) then that's 2.96m hours a year, or a wage bill of £21.3m based on the minimum wage. With JD having c£200m pre tax profit for the year (based on current analyst forecasts) changes to this wage bill would look to have a minimal impact on profits. Since SPD started getting these problems in September to December last year their sales have been growing, c7.6% on forecasts according to Monrningstar. This has been above prior trends so there doesn't seem to have been an impact on sales from the coverage. SPD's main problem looks to be they didn't hedge their currency exposure, causing a big dent to margins as with their customers being so price focused they've been unable to pass on price rises to the customer as easily (compounded by competitors being able to keep them the same because they did). EBITDA for the current year is forecast to fall from 502m to 271m and PBT from 407m to 130m which when you then chuck in a steady stream of corporate governance issues helps explain how they've lost over 2/3 of the share price. Overall back on JD from an ethics stand point this looks to be disappointing and I hope they will properly address it. I have confidence in this because of the way it has run the rest of it's operations (hedging, back office cost control and efficiencies, consistent sales growth etc). Therefore I feel we're just left with a cost to remedy from the retraining etc. On a conservative basis I can't see this being above £10m representing 5% of profit before tax. So I make that a hit of 17p based on the prior price of £3.37 and the overall investment case intact, I've therefore rebought my position.
alphabeta4: Thanks Martin. Like you I'm scratching my head to understand why they need that much cash when Retail Fascia capex was £52m in the last year. On a separate note Morningstar normalised PBT consensus was £149m so another beat by c5%. The share price not reacted just yet presumably on some profit taking. They also had 2017 PBT of £160m so I'm expecting further upgrades here. As an aside I thought the 2017 number looked very undemanding - new store openings have been running at c12% of the estate - assuming these are as profitable as existing stores then organic growth would be left negative(!) to achieve this against the 'positive trading' mentioned in the statement. Outside this all I can think is a reference to the living wage introduction perhaps? But even here you would expect a decent chunk of their customer base would also get their spending power increased at the same time (I've e-mailed their investor relations on this to try to get an idea of their average customer breakdown and wage cost line and will post here if I get a response). For what it's worth I've got a revised 2017 forecast of £182m made up of the £157m plus 12% plus 5% organic growth for a beat of previous forecasts by c14% for a new target price of £13.
mickeyb: Nice rise today currently 43p (4.3%) up at 1058p, expect more rises in share price next week.

mechanical trader: JD Sports share price jumps 7 per cent as it posts record profits by Billy Ehrenberg September 17, 2014, 7:54am JD Sports posted record first-half results as its pre-tax profits soared, rising 170 per cent to £16.4m. (Source: Getty) Shares in JD Sports rose seven per cent in mid-morning trading as the retailer posted record first-half results as its pre-tax profits soared, rising 170 per cent to £16.4m. Revenue also jumped to £721.4m, an increase of 27 per cent. The bulk of the growth was in the company's UK and European sectors. Peter Cowgill, executive chairman, said the sports business was still a key driver of growth. Our Sports operations continue to provide the engine for profit growth and cash generation in the Group and will therefore continue to be the primary focus of investment. Cowgill identified the second half of the year as more challenging, but hoped JD would post full-year results towards the upper bounds of market expectations. The Board recognises the demanding comparatives of the second half of the last financial year, particularly in the core UK and Ireland Sports fascias where like for like sales increased by 11.2 per cent, as well as our significant dependence on Christmas trading but following the robust performance of the business in the first half believes that the Group is well positioned to deliver results towards the upper end of current market expectations
discodave4: Thanks Martin,My point was that from a consensus of a number of broker forecasts (as per the Morning Star website), the forecast PE & eps for year end equates to zero uplift in the share price - from where it is now. I do appreciate however that they are by nature a prediction which may not truly reflect what does happen. IMV the share price at any given time is purely the result of supply and demand and what the market believes is its true, or perceived, value, which may not fall into line with the normal financial metrics, I.e Asos.So my confusion is that I too believe that the current share price is cheap with reasonable uplift over the next year or so, BUT broker forecasts say the opposite (in terms of share price derived from forecast PE). Or have I got it completely wrong?.GLDD
