Q1 statement out today. UK and Ireland LFL looks good but it has been massaged by the closure of underperforming B&Qs. I guess there'll be some exceptional losses associated with the B&Q closures; staff and exiting leases. France is steady. Poland looks good, and should make a useful contribution. I guess the market will be encouraged by these figures. Shareprice up on opening?

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).

Read AlphaValue's note on KINGFISHER, out this morning, by visiting hxxps:// "Kingfisher released Q4 and FY15/16 results broadly in line with our estimates and slightly ahead of market consensus. In Q4, lfl revenue increased by 2.8% (vs 2.6% in Q3 and 2% in H1); Screwfix (+15.1% vs. +13.3% in Q3, 16.5% in H1) led the pack with strong digital and mobile growth, and the roll-out of new and extended product ranges. B&Q clocked 4.4% growth (vs. +2.4% in Q3 vs 0.7% in H1) on the back of stronger demand of indoor products (excluding showrooms: kitchen and bathroom). However, the sluggishness in the French home improvement market and subdued house building activity ..."
KGF have already discussed common sourcing and one Kingfisher over a multi year period. They appeared to promise a huge amount of leverage around this previously while tangible results remained largely elusive, at least on my take. Have put it back on a watch list. HD may pounce ultimately which is why it's worth watching.
you can always rely on fudiciary duty to be jettisoned for elusive growth
May achieve an unintended result? Home Depot? Strong dollar, weak prey?

Exactly, no guaranteed results imv.
"Kingfisher announces 5 year transformation to deliver £500m sustainable annual profit uplift by the end of year 5 ..." Hmmmm. Risk went up today. The problem with an adventure such as this, the costs are virtually guaranteed, whereas the benefits may not flow as planned. Down about 11p atm.

The Aussies are coming... not good news for this share... Bunnings are VERY aggressive. Good news for the consumers though!
Surprisingly quiet here...whch is probably a good sign. In any event the French domestic consumer spending figure was a bit lower than expected today, but I note KGF went more with the general rally. (another good sign perhaps) Can't help but feel that this one will turn up for 2016 2015 VERY flat for the SP We shall see!...
More like Travis Perkins!
heavy volume by mid morning....looks like Home Retail contagion
And it's time Home Depot or Lowe's put its cards on the table before this gets properly re-rated!
Rock and Roll baby!
I like's this share, i like's it a lot, cash rich, well-operated, the best play in European home improvement DIY, and a potential takeover target, the writing is clear, GET ON! And this is not a ramp, how many cos. can generate cash like this one, and keep on buying back stock, as for general retailers - none except Next, but this is far more focused than general retailing!
News UK News B&Q PLC Job fears as B&Q to close nine stores across Wales and five in Northern Ireland 0 COMMENTS 04:00, 1 OCT 2015 UPDATED 07:40, 1 OCT 2015 BY ROBIN TURNER The DIY company announced it will close the stores over the next 15 months as part of an initiative to “transform its offer” to customers B&Q has named nine stores it is closing in Wales as part of its plan to shut 60 stores across the UK over the next two years. The DIY company earlier this week confirmed the closure of five stores in Northern Ireland with the loss of about 300 jobs.
B&Q store closures, good or bad?
Getting a delayed reaction to TS by the look of it! Today's price rise has been backed by large volume with KGF one of the top traded today. GS have re-terated thier buy advice today also. I would say that this is one of those stocks where the analyst have to think about the story and the constraints of being an II can hinder the process. Certainty is the preffered playing field of the big playes in the market and this one sits in that trnsition phase where the market has to decide if the story is one of decline or one of potential improvement related to market an operational change. I think it's the latter but an share price re-rating will only follow if the IIs concur. I'll wait here 'till they catch up.... ------------------------------------ CR, I like your stalker BTW.
Investec and Cantor both raised their targets today. CR
Astute comment Matt. AM, you may be waiting a long time for that.
