Well, after a strong start it's gone negative and broken down through 300p. Fwiw, I think the short sellers are brave. I wouldn't rule out Home Depot interest. I'll continue watching. 2nd quarter trading update is due in 5 weeks time (17 August). It'll give another clue, especially if there's any improvement in France. However, I think the sellers are playing longer term than this - looking for eventual UK decline, the financial impact of which would be magnified by Kingfisher's operational gearing. Buy in 12 months time at 250p?

Interesting that one of the bears has turned bull this morning. JP Morgan upgrade to 'overweight'. Target price up from 290p to 380p. Anyone got the reasoning behind this? It may be the strengthening of the French economy? Countering this, shorts have increased from about 0.7% in June to 2.57% now. UK consumer weakening, French economy is strengthening. Poland is going well. I'm out atm. It would be a shame to be out if that Home Depot bid finally landed. Looking longer term, UK consumer should recover. Buying now would lock in the current dollar/sterling rate. I wonder if Home Depot are tempted?

Ta, ih_375993. :-) Results look good but I wonder how much read across to Kingfisher? One is telecoms and electrical retailer the other is building materials and diy retailer. Also, only approximately 50% overlap in geographical areas. Still, it's good to see a retailer doing well.

FTSE100 down 38 points atm. KGF up 4p. I don't know why. Has anyone got a suggestion?

You need what's called a confidence and supply motion to form a UK government when short of a majority, that is if you do not form a coalition. It really depends on number of seats, as an example if CON fell just a few seats short they could govern with support of the unionist MP's, if the two combined gave them a majority. If CON fall well short, then more likely an Labour minority government supported by the SNP. Of course there would be a price to pay for this!. I heard some activists on the ground are far more cautious on LAB prospects than support shown in some of the published polling indicates.

Question to those in the know: Assuming we get some form of Labour /SNP /LIB Dem coalition(Labours best chance of power) I assume it means the SNP/Lib Dems will basically hold the casting vote on most matters. In addition we will have a second Scottish referendum, a second 'brexit' vote (maybe more if they don't like the results) and no doubt a further general election when the Scottish leave the Union. Is this correct?

YouGov just updated - CON 302 seats - that would equal LAB/SNP minority. Must be dreaming, but apparently not!.

Well never look at those tbh, just added a small amount under 312, if it's Labour in government then under £3, at a guess only!.

I also see HSBC have reiterated their BUY rec with a 440p target! Quite a way away now!

It came close to your buy territory, EI. Unexpected (by me) uptick today. Shorts increased with the 24 May update. Notified level reached a year high, but only 2.18%. Maybe today's rise was some closing? Also, good UK construction figures out. Also, stochastics had reached a year low - so, technical bounce is another possibility. None of this improves the French situation, though. That's the thing holding back KGF.

A well executed omnichannel strategy is key imv In the UK how KGF have grown Screwfix employing this method is a good example, very different product segment clearly.

I like contra plays, bought a small amount of WG. this AM and holding BLND post results, BLND very unloved!. If we do get a Summer swoon in wider markets may again buy a few KGF, the share price would need to be sub 3.20 though, which may not happen.

Don't get me wrong, Ed, we haven't been invested in KGF all that time...prefer to swing trade. However, its a pretty rubbish performance when one considers the share price was about 621p in 1999. Is DIY such an ex-growth sector? EI, I think you've got KGF in perspective and its only the outside bid possibility that kept me holding on Monday when it touched 369.8p. Our average is currently 326.25p so still in profit but, I suspect, not for long once the market wide correction takes hold.

Recent trend in KGF's France lfl ... Q3 2017 -3.6% Q4 2017 -4.0% Q1 2018 -5.5% Should they be buying back their own shares? That cash could be put to work in turning around the French operation. If they are consistently losing market share they have to do something and that 'something' will cost.
