connorcampbell: !YOUTUBEVIDEO:ksfAAsmHV8E: Will Kingfisher announce a new CEO alongside its Q1 results next Wednesday? Though it saw a 13% plunge in underlying pre-tax profit to £693 million, March’s full year report was really notable for the changes to the firm’s long-running ONE Kingfisher transformation plan. Forced to abandon the target of a sustainable £500 million annual profit uplift by FY 2020/21, stating that it ‘no longer reflects’ how the business is managed, CEO Veronique Laury was given the boot, though her leaving date wasn’t announced. Any word on her successor may be the most sought-after piece of news on Wednesday. Beyond that, investors will specifically be looking for signs of improvement in Castorama given Kingfisher said it was ‘implementing a clear plan’ to turnaround the ailing brand. The progress of the extended rollout of Screwfix outlets in the UK and abroad will also be under the spotlight.

whatsup32: 16 August I stated Kingfisher continues to say all is good and she is on plan. Is the plan to waste the cash at hand buying shares back. How much has the company actually lost in pursuing this lost cause. That cash should be held in the account for rainy days. If all is well then why is the share price going down (7 year lows) Why is France going down Why is B&Q not transformed I think investors willl be questioning this 5 year plan as should the management

ed 123: Whatsup32. Yes, I now agree they should never have done any buybacks. I confess that in the early days I thought it ok, but the continuing decline in trading has changed the picture for me. EI, activist investor? Hmmm .... Spin off of Screwfix? Not the way to go, for me, because the B&Q/Castorama problems would remain. Fwiw, I view the "ONE Kingfisher" plan as too little and bigged up. It should have been going on, anyway, and the costs should not have been recorded as exceptionals. They need to constantly make changes for the efficiency of the business because their competitors certainly will be. If I were CEO, I'd bite the bullet sooner, exit the big retail stores more quickly. When down to a smaller number (retaining the ones in key locations), I'd dump the B&Q name, rebrand to "Screwfix" and give the same Screwfix pricing in the remaining retail sheds. This rebranding and unification of product ranges would lower marketing and operating costs (like another stage of ONE Kingfisher) and they'd leverage Screwfix's success with online/click and collect into the retail shed subsector. At the moment, sadly, management are not being bold enough.

essentialinvestor: There may be an outside possibility of an activist investor getting involved and perhaps pushing for a Screwfix spin off? - just a thought.

ed 123: Ta. Briefly back into the 200's. I'm not surprised. Maybe dip to 290p soon-ish? Ddubzy. Individual stocks are more volatile these days. We are in an era of high frequency trading. Investors are swamped by the volume of 'gambling' trades. Longer term is more rational. Not an easy climate for private investors.

essentialinvestor: Ed, are you tempted to buy in if this comes back?. Had a listen to the conference call, nothing revelatory, and the Q&A was not available on the investors site, often the most informative part.

sarkasm: Preview: Shell AGM and Kingfisher financial results in spotlight 16:35 23 May 2016 Tuesday brings Royal Dutch Shell Plc (LON:RDSB) into focus, as it holds its AGM, elsewhere, retailer Kingfisher releases results. Shell petrol station Crude's recent rally may have taken the edge off somewhat. Tuesday brings Royal Dutch Shell Plc (LON:RDSB) into focus, as it holds its AGM. Whilst crude’s recent rally, up to nearly US$50 per barrel, will no doubt have taken some of the edge off, and the room will likely be less of a pressure cooker for Shell. The dividend appears more assured, compared to how it looked earlier this year at least. Nevertheless, it may not be all sweetness and light – as a group of investors are raising questions of the group’s plans to handle climate change. Campaigning investors The Aiming for A coalition says Shell has failed to fully address the impact of reduced demand for oil and gas because of new technologies such as carbon capture and electric cars. The group acknowledged improvements made by the company, but demanded more risk and strategy disclosure. It said investors with assets worth US$5.05trln, including Rathbone Greenbank Investments, will provide Shell with direct feedback on progress at Shell’s AGM on Tuesday. Rathbone ethical research and engagement analyst and Aiming for A spokesman, Matt Crossman, said: “There remain areas which demand attention, not least how the management of the risks and opportunities from climate change work their way into executive incentives.” The group claimed investors needed to know more about the specific nature of the gas assets in Shell’s portfolio following its merger with gas producer BG Group. Kingfisher to be boosted by early Easter Broker Numis says the group, which is trying to turn itself round, should have benefited from the early Easter but the broker expects that colder temperatures in Northern Europe to have delayed the onset of what it calls the important 'gardening season'. "In the past, this has often reversed out in Q2. The UK business will remain underpinned by the exceptional growth of Screwfix (now more than 20% of divisional sales) and LFL at B&Q should gain from its own and Homebase’s store closure programmes," said analyst Matthew Taylor, who rates the share 'reduce', targeting 325p. As reported earlier this year, retail profit for the year to end January was up 7.4% to £746mln largely due to a good performance from Screwfix and a stable overall performance in France. But statutory profit for the year was £512mln, over 20% down from £644mln in 2014. The Share Centre said: "The group beat market expectations with its full year results, but the weak performance of the French operations remain a drag and investors will be keen to hear how that part of the group is performing." It rates KGF a 'hold'. Announcements Full year - Severn Trent PLC (LON:SVT), Cranswick plc (LON:CWK), Aveva Group (LON:AV.), Homeserve PLC (LON:HSV).
