Agreed! Hopefully its Shorters closing positions today which is driving the price up. Solid set of results in tough year for Lookers. Hopefully we'll get a clear steer from HM Gov soon on diesel and tax breaks to buy electric / hybrid.

Nearly everyone I know seems to be buying on pcp,got to influence the used market you would think. I bought from Lookers (not on pcp) and was impressed with the set up competitive with good customer service.

Yes, Lookers were buying in the market again today. I may have found the cause of today's fall. Someone in the FT mentioned Lookers in connection with declining UK consumer sentiment, possible interest rate rise, possible issues around PCPs and Brexit. May have been enough to see some holders running for the exit?

Two big trades printed, one at 87p and one at 86.5p. Possibly sells, which took the price down? If the Company was buying back its own shares and happy to pay 92.5 to 93.0p yesterday, why didn't the seller sell to Lookers? Should have got a better price? Or, could have sold more slowly and let Lookers mop them up in the market? Someone in a rush? It's a puzzle to me.

What's happening with Lookers today? Down 7.4% or 7.9p as I type. Anyone know anything? (Not holding, but watching.)

The UK new car market declined in the first month of the year, according to figures released today by the SMMT. 163,615 cars were driven off forecourts in January, a 6.3% fall compared with the same month in 2017 when 174,564 were registered.

15% drop in last week is severe though?

SP looking a bit grim today. Suspect Mondays SMMT new car registration figs for January won't be good & I expect Lookers will be already aware of their own month performance from their DoC's which might go some way to explaining todays drop.

The retail new car market has been back yr on yr for the last 6 months so dropping on today’s news is ridiculous and just offers up a short term trading opportunity. Lost 3-4% at open and wouldn’t surprise me if it recoups all of it. This is a cyclical business and can’t help thinking it’s going to be harder. When it’s tough, it’s the margin that gets eroded and that’s more important to watch than the volumes.

Not a solitary BOD buy post update.

Hi Ed, only a guess on my part. As per previous posts have questioned the expansionary strategy at this part of the cycle. KGF update shortly, the recent Homebase figures looked very ugly. Not holding atm.

Hi EI. If the buybacks are to be modest, then why do them at all? Pendragon did some share buybacks at up to 40p per share. Price in the market now? 25p. Capex? Why do the manufacturers require such glossy showrooms and styling updates? At the end of the day the customer pays. If there is to be real pressure on consumers ahead, then surely those showrooms jobs will be cut back? High margin on servicing and repairs? I wonder if the time will come when the market resists the prices that the car group garages charge? As an example, I needed some steering parts recently and bought the OEM items for a quarter of the price the garage was asking. The public seem blind or indifferent to these massive margins. But, will it go on for ever?

Ed, would expect any buyback to be modest. CAPEX has been chunky of late and would think it would fall back some. Agree on cyclicality, made the very same point elsewhere yesterday.

Q3 trading update today. Much as expected except for the share buyback bit. It's a bad move, imo. If the business had been a steady one without debt, then share buybacks would have been ok by me. However, Lookers is cyclical, arguably at the start of a dip and has c. £60 million of debt. It is not the business and not the time for buybacks. (Remember the 2009 rescue rights issue at 40p?) I've held Lookers at times in the past. Watching but wary - I need to see how Brexit will impact the UK economy at large and the motor retail sector in particular. The shares are about 100p atm. Cheap, when viewed against current trading, but what lies ahead?

Nice rise. I was preparing to sell if the share price fell to 95p

Yesterday was PDG warning as you are probably aware. The focus for Look should be less on expansion at this point of the cycle, and instead get net debt paid down. Gearing has rapidly reduced over the past two years in fairness, helped by the parts division sale.

From experience; if the share price sinks before then there are people who know more than me! Especially before an update. Might take this loss

Share price trebled between 2011 and 2015. The 2009 low was around 20 pence from memory, there has been some major money made here.
