Sound business with consistently good profits and decent dividends. Is it not a good long term investment.

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.

EI. I'm cautious on Brexit. We don't know what the impact will be on the UK. UK consumer is already highly borrowed and if employment takes a hit, then .... Also, Kingfisher France needs sorting and will cost, eg fall in French margin. Closure of underperforming outlets? The Group's acorn, imo, is Germany's Screwfix. They should be able to grow it for years to come. Eventually it ought to exceed UK Screwfix. For long term holders, KGF is on a dividend yield of about 3.4% and has a strong balance sheet and good cash flow. So, in answer to your question, am I tempted? Not enthusiastic. It could be tradeable on dips and rises but I don't see it making any material advance. Might suit some for its steady dividend. Will continue watching. Trading updates are important, as operational gearing of B&Q, Castorama and Brico is high.

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.

Relief rally, amplified by shorts closing is my opinion. Presently up 21.5p at 318p. My guess, fwiw, closes today at c. 305p. Looking at the detail, not much has changed. On the positive side, I'm relieved they have stated some sort of plan for France. Previously France had appeared to be rudderless. Again, the future depends on UK construction and housing related retail sales. Hence, some uncertainty going forward. The France market should show small growth - but Castorama and Brico have been underperforming. An income stock, not firing on all cylinders, but balance sheet strong.

Ei, There's some well established consumer stocks that are still growing,with little or no debt,generate healthy levels of FCF,with excellent ROCE, that have been dragged down with the bad who's share ratings are not reflecting their prospects imo.

I've traded this frequently as mentioned, however the shares bought Friday I will keep, small position only. A lowering of expectations would not be too surprising and may not be the time to be brave on UK consumer stocks atm. Joe, definitely a contra play!.

Seems an overreaction to consumer spending habits on GNK PW,also Safestyle is more a big ticket spend compared to B&Q average spend £30. Consensus 2018 eps 23.5, divi 10.5. Consensus 2019 eps 26.5. divi 11.7. Not sure if the 10% reduction in shares is factored in to those est.

May depends if FY guidance is lowered. Would be surprised to see this much under 2.60 just imv, however if there is a trading shock to the downside, all bets are off.

Nursing a small loss (inc divi)now.Safestyle update poor,half year results 20/sept,will take another tranche if results not as bad as share price indicating on the look ahead prospects,be surprised if it goes much below 280p,that probably means it's nailed on for lower levels.

Bought back 3 small lots at 2.90 and below. 2.50-2.60 possible, may be.

2.1 million shares bought back, that's around 10% of the current buy back in one day, due to end no later than 15th September from memory.

France is nearer to a -4% decline at -3.8% L4L. Given the French home improvement market grew overall, either the pricing and/or product offering is not adequately meeting customer needs, just IMV.
