Investec raised price target to 710p from 535p post results.
LONDON (Dow Jones)--JD Sports Fashion PLC (JD.LN) is preparing to gatecrash the GBP42.5 million takeover of AIM-listed Powerleague, Britain's biggest operator of five-a-side football centers, U.K. newspaper The Sunday Times says, citing City sources. The sports fashion firm is believed to be taking advice from bankers at Investec, the report says. Powerleague, which is chaired by Claude Littner, has already agreed a takeover by Patron Capital, its biggest shareholder and investors are due to vote on the deal at an extraordinary meeting next month, the report says. City sources said JD Sports had made no firm decision on whether to proceed with an offer but was thought to be considering buying the business and putting sports shops in the five-a-side centers. JP Sports could not be reached for comment.
Covered in SCSW - gets a 'hold for more' after doubling from their alternative 'NAP' in Jan. CR
JJB fundraising delayed... http://business.timesonline.co.uk/tol/business/industry_sectors/retailing/article6869025.ece
JD. supportive of JJB £60m fundraising http://business.timesonline.co.uk/tol/business/industry_sectors/retailing/article6865484.ece Cheers, Martin
SCSW - this weekend, must get a mention after the results imo. CR
Bought back the few I topsliced a week or two ago. Never expected a pull back lik this - hideously cheap at this level imo. CR
Coolmd - the stock is very thinly traded since most is held by insiders and a handful of strategics/institutions. The selling of a handful of people likely including a number on this bb would be enough to move the price down. Personally found the results slightly disapointing, albeit they continue to outperform the high street. Not currently holding, but would if given the chance around 450p again.
Yup. Bought a few back at 530p.
don't know, but glad I sold at £6.16. Looking to get back in now as this is a good solid company.
Can anyone please explain the slide or is this just market correction?
http://www.theretailbulletin.com/news/brokers_note_jd_sports_28-09-09/ Starts: "Singer Capital Markets has reduced its recommendation and raised its price target on JD Sports following the group's solid set of interim results. The broker has upped its target from 555p to 663p on the back of both the strong first half figures - which have been delivered alongside a string of acquisitions and overseas expansion - and an upward move in its share price."
Cheers Shanks. CR
try epic "JD."
Still no interest on these boards, but up another 20p since my last post.
And finally The Times JD Sports Fashion continues to play in a league of its own. While its rivals JJB Sports and Sports Direct International have spent the downturn constrained by their debt and find themselves embroiled in a price-fixing enquiry by the Office of Fair Trading, JD carries on much as before. Recession has even enabled it to raise its game. This year, JD took its first steps into continental Europe with the purchase of Chausport, the 76-store footwear chain in France. The deal was struck at a knockdown price - £10 million - and gives JD scope to extend Chausport's reach from northern France into the country's bigger cities further south. More immediately, it will give JD considerably more buying power with the likes of adidas and Nike. Elsewhere, JD has picked up two of the biggest brands in rugby at bargain levels - buying KooGa and, more recently, New Zealand's Canterbury, for £8 million between them. That opens up an entire new customer base and adds to JD's stable of brands that have strong international appeal. The company said yesterday that it had drawn interest from overseas retailers and wholesalers who are interested in stocking its kit, and it is mulling which territories to enter first and whether through joint ventures or licensing deals. If there is a disappointment, it was not with yesterday's first-half numbers. At £14.2 million, pre-tax profits in the six months to August 1 were up 14.5 per cent, modestly ahead of forecasts. JD retains net cash - about £6 million - despite its acquisitions, while the dividend was raised 6.5 per cent.

Like-for-like gains have dropped from 3 per cent earlier in the year to 0.8 per cent in the most recent six weeks. That performance, combined with gross margins that are slightly below target, meant that current-year profit forecasts were left on hold, a break with recent tradition, whereby JD's results are usually accompanied by profit upgrades. A change in the mix of brands sold by JD's Scotts fashion chain - which caused it to clear stock - will not have helped. The bigger constraint came from Bank, which is loss-making. It has only 57 stores, implying strong growth potential relative to the 327 run under the JD fascia, but the formula seems in need of more work. At 594p, up by one quarter since July, the shares have little to drive them higher for now. However, at seven times earnings, neither can they be deemed too steep. Hold on.
The Torygraph JD Sports 594p -6p Questor says Buy JD Sports Fashion is moving away from the sports retail pack. The chain, which sells sporty casual wear, yesterday said that first-half profit was up by 14pc, ahead of even the most optimistic forecasts. At a time when rivals like JJB Sports and Sports Direct are flagging, JD is leagues ahead. JD has two distinct divisions – sports and fashion. While the sports arm sells core sports clothing such as trainers and tops, the fashion division comprises clothing chains Bank and Scotts. Like-for-like sales in both divisions remained positive over the half, a good achievement in the current market. The sports arm remains central to the company's profitability but the fashion arm has strong growth potential and estimated chunky margins of 45pc. Sales have slowed slightly since the company's second half started, but the performance is still good. For the first time, the company has also broken out a new division in its reporting – "wholesale". This covers the sale of brands – such as Canterbury – to third parties. This will add visibility to the company's earnings. It is expected to take three years to deliver profits to the retailer. There are a few potential banana skins lurking. Rising unemployment among JD's core customers – 16 to 24-year-olds – might affect sales. But in general this company is firing on all cylinders. The company is, in Questor's view, undervalued. The shares slipped slightly yesterday after a rally last week. Trading on 7.6 times next year's earnings, the stock yields 2.17pc. A strong buy.
For those too lazy to follow the links ;-) Indie Our view: Buy Share price: 594p JD Sports Fashion has been the goody two-shoes of the sportswear sector recently. While rival JJB nearly went bankrupt this year and Sports Direct became embroiled in a potentially damaging price-fixing inquiry this month, JD behaved itself again yesterday by posting better-than-expected pre-tax profits, up by 14.5 per cent to £14.2m in the half-year to 1 August. The retailer – which unlike its two rivals sells very little sports equipment – attributed the performance to its differentiated business model, which centres on selling clothing and footwear brands across its retail fascias and wholesale operation. JD's portfolio not only covers its popular own-brands Carbrini and McKenzie, but also labels including Sergio Tacchini and Adidas Originals, which it sells under exclusive deals. Furthermore, it has plenty of growth potential, illustrated by a series of recent acquisitions and plans to expand its Bank fashion chain from 50 to up to 250 shops. This summer, it acquired Chausport, the 78-store French sports retailer, and the rugby brands Kooga and Canterbury. Its shares – despite a strong run this year – trade at a 2010 forward price-to-earnings ratio of 7, a sizeable discount to the retail sector. However, life is currently anything but a walk, or run, in the park for JD. Its total like-for-like sales growth slowed to just 0.7 per cent over the half-year, hit by being up against strong comparables and a squeeze on the spending power of its young customers. JD also said its 38-store Scotts fascia "continues to experience profitability issues with its legacy store portfolio". But JD has shrugged off the recession and will get a boost from sales of England football shirts during next year's World Cup. And given its good behaviour over recent years, its shares look a safer option for investors than betting on glory for the national squad. Buy.
Some interesting grist for the mill:- http://www.independent.co.uk/news/business/sharewatch/investment-column-buy-goodytwoshoes-jd-sports-fashion-1791680.html http://business.timesonline.co.uk/tol/business/markets/article6845111.ece http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/markets/questor/6219966/Imperial-Tobacco-is-worth-holding-on-to-despite-the-recovery.html Pretty universal positives :-))
