You could have got the bottom of this results dip there. Good luck. Certaily KGF looks sound with the cash it throws off and its strong balance sheet. Fwiw, I did some switching out of KGF ahead of these results and into RPC. I think I'm slightly down on that exercise atm, even after today's reaction. I'll see how it goes - it's intended to be a longer term play. RPC has strong earnings growth, which (imv) is likely to continue as it's in growing markets and is a regular and (seemingly) careful acquirer of smaller competitors. Share price is weak atm, following rights issue. RPC has a trading update due at the end of this month. No advice intended.

Hi Ed, France comment imv, France performance not great. Had a very small amount at 3.27.

Hi EssentialInvestor. KGF is down about 5.4% atm. Say, 1% of that is following the market down this morning. So, 4.4% drop is due to today's news. I've got eps slightly ahead of consensus and dividend slightly behind consensus. So, the answer is probably not in those figures. My guess, fwiw, is the Technical Guidance for 2017/18. Specifically, they are expecting flat margin, as the benefits of their changes are offset by price reinvestment. Also, (if I've read it correctly)about 95million of what were to be exceptional costs will now be normal P&L expenditure. Is it looking like more of the transformation benefits will be swallowed by price competition and rising costs? Then, France is still stuck where it was and Wesfarmers do have a good record (although don't have any UK momentum yet.) Finally, a new Chairman - could be some reaction to that? I don't know.

Added a few today. If anyone would like a TA view on KGF, on the SHA board today 3 different posters give a TA view. I usually post there and mentioned KGF as a longer term buy. Very much a case of DYOR as always, but may be interesting.

Ta, EI. :-) Wesfarmers interims were released today. http://www.wesfarmers.com.au/docs/default-source/asx-announcements/2017-half-year-report-(incorporating-appendix-4d).pdf?sfvrsn=0 BUKI reported a loss before interest and tax of £28 million ($48 million) and revenue of £612 million ($1,038 million). BUKI has made very good progress to separate Homebase from its former owner and begin repositioning the business. The first Bunnings pilot store was successfully opened on 2 February 2017, with additional pilot stores currently under development. If they are only piloting then they aren't yet confident they know the right formula for the UK. So it will take time for them to decide what's best and then execute the roll out. This may take a few years to complete? Should be time for KGF holders to make interim assessments?

Hi Ed, thanks for your view. B&Q trialling a couple of new smaller format stores, two opening in London. I can see why the dividend hunters like WES, they have a very high payout ratio for retail.

EI Think u are on right track safer than DEB. As for Bunnings its too early days and wont have an impact for years, many have tried many have failed you cannot compare a Bunnings store to a complete roll out like Aldi and Lidl as against Supermarkets, if that makes sense.

FWIW I e-mailed KGF investors relations late yesterday, with a link to that article, got a reply this morning saying they were aware. Added before yesterday's close and looking to add further. It is only fair to say that if Le Pen does win, it's likely to be a first step to France leaving the EURO, so there may be an initial share price shock, that is speculation on my part only so please DYOR, as always. My view is longer term.

Very interesting, thanks for that. Would hope the actions KGF are taking will enable them to position more aggressively on cost, if needed. The big reduction in stock lines planned should help focus buying power. In the US, Home Depot do not tend to compete on price and they make incredible returns, even with Lowes, Wal Mart etc.

Greece, here we go again, they would be far better outside the EURO area imv. May impact short term sentiment towards KGF, unfairly imv.

Hi corlis, UKX looking perky. Hoping a few more opportunities with KGF over the next few weeks. ED, summary of this morning's analyst view on the Proactiveinvestors site, if you have not already seen.

May not be the low!, bounced from around that level previously. The French Presidential odds are narrowing, so causing some nerves at a guess.

Opened down 5p this morning. Probably in response to Jefferies 10p reduction in target price (335p down to 325p). Maintains "Hold".
