kirk 6: No one saying it's isn't a logical or even good post 11pecent so I don't know why you feel so insecure you have to post 3 times since! My query is why when anyone ever posts anything remotely positive it's always quashed by fenners day in day out. My question is what has fenners done about it if he/she feels that way so strongly?I'm in the opinion this will turn around and be multiples of current share price by end of 2018 so therefore going to hold of from implying the management are fraudsters and not acting in the interests of shareholders which is their legal obligation. So my query is why so many posts say in day out by fenners?
srpactive: K The figures have not been good, the dividend has been cut and now stopped, but they bought a Singapore building in June 2015 for £31m which they have not done anything with ( we are led to believe ), but used cash and put debt on the balance sheet needed for the purchase. The chairman has gone through a long divorce, the situation is such a shame. =================================================== Now we have some decent non executives, the fashion side is picking up along with the online, new sales lines have been set up in China, the Asia side is being taken in house in October 2018, the hotel chain is being lined up for expansion along with tea rooms and kitchens etc etc. We have just put Halpern in charge of PR, daughter of retail legend Sir Ralph Halpern. =========================================== I hope that helps, such a real shame as this was one of my most promising stocks in July 2015, cash in the bank, big profits, handsome dividend and a 35p share price, dyor, dyor and guess what dyor.
greedfear: I know what you mean, I too don't really like the control element. I've only been a holder since the share price crossed 6p downwards. It's a price where I'm feeling comfortable about the risk-reward ratio. If he takes it private I don't know how much he's going to pay, your guess is as good as mine.
fenners66: Greedfear "Removing dividends has got nothing to do with a paper loss on real estate, it's because the cash position" How about reading what was posted ? "The fact that the property was bought , barely used , had the value written down , making the resultant paper loss part of the reason for removing dividends has effected the share price." look closely "Bought" = used ALL the cash "barely used" = Questions from potential investors as to whether company lost its way "paper loss" = Bad headline results and no dividend - lots of potential investors don't get past the headlines "part of the reason " = part of the reason NOT the sole reason. Have you read up on the reference to Ovoca Gold ? Do so.... only don't get carried away and buy shares there as well !
savagedstock: The owner is surely better off taking this private....but its a vanity thing for him. To own a (former) well known brand and have a listing...i guess he might sell out for a high double digit share price to private equity....but what is in all honesty the real future of this company? It has not invested or repositioned its brand to teh point where it is now largely irrelevant. the core customer base is old and gradually dying off...a real shame.
srpactive: s In July 2015,it had a fantastic brand, balance sheet, dividend and share price.
coxsmn: The share price has literally been falling for 3 years. That is 3 years the management has had to make positive changes to reverse the fall.
fenners66: I think this is going private. If you had to invent a strategy for taking it private it would have been exercised like this. 1, get a controlling interest 2, take over the board 3, have independent directors resign and replace 4, buy a large property near 3% of your business and half a world away from the other 97% - which is surplus to the business 5, Use ALL of the cash so there is no money left to pay out dividends to those minority shareholders - as an income share this hits the share price. 6, Suffer and unfortunate devaluation of the property on the other side of the world, who knows what it is worth ? who can argue? 7, Watch the share price decline further as a result of the write down. 8, Increase the salary of the board members (family?) that you appointed - less profit 9, Review share price and see if the whole company has become cheap enough to buy. 10, if not continue until it is
srpactive: Well I have been buying more around this level, it depends if the chairman wants to get this back on its feet. If he does sell the Singapore office. If not, not. C This is such a shame if you look back at the July 2015 share price and the profitable results, with millions in the bank and a good decent dividend, then the Singapore purchase July 2015, bank emptied, debt raised and a low share price, and these people get paid, no wonder Mr Corbyn has so many followers. dyor.
jimmywilson612: I disagree Carcosa - I think it matches the funamentals and shows how tough retail is at the moment. If you simply compare the PE to other retailers: ALY: PE 10 MKS: PE 9 BON: PE 6.8 NXT: PE 11 SCS: PE 11 Therefore I dont see if necessarily as a decline in ALY share price, but a decline in the over view of the retail sector.
