Barty, this likely is a recovery stock , it’s was sold heavily on drop in forecasted profits. The U.K. economy isn’t doing too well so has affected JD. forecasts.

Over time this should recover, but I would say it will be over the medium term rather than short term.

Three directors of JD Sports Fashion

have spent £170,000 increasing their holdings after a profit warning left the retailer’s shares a third cheaper than on New Year's Day.

Chief executive RĂ©gis Schultz led the way with an investment of £99,000 before purchases connected to chair Andy Higginson and non-executive director Andy Long.

Their moves at near to 109p compared with mid-December’s 175p and the 155.45p before the 4 January disclosure that trading had been softer and more promotional than JD anticipated.

House broker Peel Hunt cut its adjusted profit forecasts for this financial year and the following one to below £1 billion but retained a 250p target price, believing the weakness presented a “good opportunity to buy a growing market leader”.

It said: “External factors are mostly to blame. The consumer is cautious and looking for a deal and with no especially exciting launches, it has been a dullish period.”

Other analysts are more cautious, with RBC and Barclays lowering their price targets to 150p and JPMorgan cutting to 175p but with an “overweight221; recommendation. One of five stocks in interactive investor’s Aggressive Winter Portfolio 2023-24, JD Sports has been an otherwise strong seasonal performer based on an average return of 23.7% over the past 10 winters.

Shares closed the week at 111.25p, outperforming the retail sector on Friday after the UK’s Office for National Statistics confirmed JD’s view of poor Christmas conditions.

For the 22 weeks to 30 December, JD reported like-for-like growth slightly behind its expectations at 1.8%. The gross margin was similar to last year, below its earlier hopes due to the elevated level of promotional activity in the peak trading period.

JD operates more than 3,400 stores in 38 countries, with about a third of its £10 billion annual revenues from North America through brands such as Finish Line and Shoe Palace.

Schultz, who became chief executive in September 2022, said this month that JD continued to make good progress on the five-year strategic plan he set out last February.

His ambition to make JD the leading “global sports fashion powerhouse” targets opportunities in Europe and North America through investment in stores, technology and analytics.

On recent trading, Schultz pointed out that JD continued to grow market share and that its overall revenue growth of 6% was against very tough comparisons with last year.

He added: “We are confident in our strategy and we continue to invest in our supply chain, systems and stores, supported by our strong cash generation and healthy balance sheet."

Schultz was appointed by Higginson, the former Morrisons chair who took the top boardroom role at JD in 2022. He knows both the retail sector and the company well, having grown up in the Lancashire town of Bury where JD was founded in 1981 and is still headquartered.

Higginson bought shares worth £240,000 at a price near 150p last January, with his household’s latest investment taking place on Thursday with a value of £49,500.

The £20,000 purchase by Long, who is an executive director at JD’s majority shareholder Pentland Group, was struck on Friday. He previously ran privately-owned Pentland’s portfolio of sports and fashion brands that includes Speedo, Canterbury and Berghaus.

Is this recovery play a hot stock?

Thom, different store formats, but likely you can buy the same product from either?

I buy my stuff online from whoever is the cheapest, does that mean JD. Is not investable, of course it doesn’t as different people shop differently.

If my buy order goes thru will I shop at JD. , not really unless they are the cheapest.

Hi Careful, yes, I have been in for some time, my average is quite high though, around 145p. I am still confident in the outlook on the long term, at least as an outsider. It is rosy when you have a long term hold and you can compound dividends. But unfortunately and understandably, it is not the case for JD.

JD Sports Fashion PLC
LSE:JD.
JD sports model
JD Sports Fashion PLC (LSE:JD.) has lost close to a quarter of its value after issuing profit warnings, with analysts such as those at Shore Capital scurrying to place the stock’s rating under review while they analyse what’s gone wrong.

However, Peel Hunt, the group’s house broker, has issued a research note of solidarity, stating that the current dip represents “a good opportunity to buy a high-quality, growing market leader”.

It claims that the weaker financials over Christmas were largely caused by external factors, such as a lack of exciting launches, cautious shoppers looking for deals and milder weather slowing the sales of winter range products such as coats.

“JD’s forecasts can’t defy these forces,” the house broker said before lowering its own forecasts for both the current and upcoming financial year.

Peel Hunt’s pre-tax profit guidance for the current year has been reduced from just over £1 billion to £920 million – on the lower end of JD’s newly adjusted £915 million to £935 million range.

Peel Hunt keeps its ‘buy’ rating for the stock and targets a 250p price, representing more than a 110% upside to the current 117p price.

Downgrades to come?

Shore Capital has placed its 'buy' rating on JD Sports under review after today’s “disappointing news” with a profit warning set around sales slightly behind management expectations alongside weaker than anticipated gross margin.

The broker noted that the revised pre-tax profit guidance of circa £915-935 million is slightly below the consensus expectation of £1.09 billion.

At the midpoint, this marks a notable 15% cut to its forecast, ShoreCap noted.

“We see a lot to like in JD, not least its balance sheet, but confidence in earnings estimates is a pre-condition of a positive equity case and so we place our buy stance under review,” it said
