Ed, think along similar lines. Would add the significant cash on the balance sheet, a pension scheme in surplus, Screwfix, and FCF looks strong. If Greece flares up again over the next couple of weeks may be an opportunity to acquire lower down, no Greek exposure but it may impact European area sentiment. There is also the Fresh Election causing some uncertainty.

Hi Essentialinvestor. Yes, a few weeks to wait. Too optimistic? As you well know, it's about the future. Atm there are brokers and commentators (slightly more than half?) against Kingfisher. That means the shares can be acquired at a reasonable (as defined by the optimists) price. We know the UK is going well overall. The Screwfix business is booming and can be replicated abroad. UK B&Q is being reshaped. Poland is strong. Russia is in a better place with the rise in the oil price. What is needed is France to pick up. If you look at the Eurozone recent data, it is moving nicely ahead. https://www.ecb.europa.eu/stats/ecb_statistics/key_euro_area_indicators/html/index.en.html My hope is that we see France moving forward and spending more on its buildings. There has been a long period of stagnation and so there must be backlog of postponed work. I think once a recovery begins it will run for a long-ish period and be strong (as the backlog needs to be tackled). If it doesn't go this well, there's always the 'Home Depot put'. US construction is going well and Trump may even give it a boost. Sterling has dropped against the dollar. Kingfisher is held back by France but maybe not for much longer. A good time for Home Depot to make a move? I may now sound even more optimistic than yourself?

Questor says 'avoid Kingfisher'. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2017/02/04/questor-kingfisher-investors-can-do-better-elsewhere/ Other doubters include JP Morgan, Nomura and Investec. Preliminaries due on 22 March. Fwiw, I've increased my holding recently.

Now 338 which may take a few attempts to push up through. Time to take profit, or sit & wait.

Well would like to see how the share price performs on a weaker day. KGF is not a trade for me though, on a multi year view this is very interesting. Huge cash generation, net cash on the balance sheet and a pension scheme in surplus. Intend to add if markets do take a dip.

Essential This still has allot of setting up to do, but im thinking the worst is behind this share.....not to say there won't be the odd drop, but overall i'd expect it to start upwards slowly.

Added at just over 3.29 on the broker downgrade. Would like a few lower down if available.

Now 333, this still has allot of setting up to do but going along nicely for a few day trades.

I see this finished yesterday at 330 with an abandoned baby doji candlestick. This could mean the tide is going to turn to the upside. Im not in yet but watching very closely.

I found today's trading update encouraging. The share price is up about 20% from the July low point, so any 'gain' may already be in the price. Market opening is down but I wouldn't be surprised to see it rise from here (354p) over the next month. I especially like B&Q UK actually increasing total sales while the estate has been reduced in size. A better performance from France in H2 looks likely. Also in H2 constant currency changes should be positive. I think Investec and J P Morgan will have to revisit their 'sell' recommendations. They do look to have missed the plot, imo. It is not going to fall to 280p, imo.

The latest buy back may now have ended. Barclays today cuts KGF price target to 2.85.

Added a small amount under 3.10. Significant benefit here from EURO/GBP with he bulk of profits in EURO. Flip side is current macro and consumer confidence, or lack of it.

This is struggling big time, if the indices is a guide today, then further falls inevitable! Clearly their French exposure seen as a big negative right now, along with discretionary spending on home improvements!

Hi EssentialInvestor. Yes, with many sectors/businesses finding life hard, a solid performing cash generator, with upside potential if/when France recovers trades on a multiple that would seem high set against a different economic backdrop. Priced at 16x? Depends on what's in of course, but last year produced 28p of cashflow. At 373p, that's about 13 x cashflow. Grumble .... I don't like them buying back their own shares. Should be using the cash to buy freeholds of their leased property. If a downturn should come, they'll be much better placed not having to pay rents. If no downturn, they'd be earning c. 7% pa on their property investment, a useful return.

Ed, looks solid, but not cheap on about 16x ?.
