flyfisher: Looking at sector rivals. Inchcape made a h1 2020 loss of £188m. Pendragon made a h1 2020 loss of £41m. LOOK has already forecast a heavy loss for the H1 period, but how much is expected?
loads2: To disect the SMMT Commentary: "The car industry has become highly politicised with the rollout of vaccines, and our relationship with the EU coins the political phrase of the moment that we must make 2021 a year when we 'build back better'. We will work with government to encourage drivers to make the political switch (to e-vehicles) while promoting politically controlled global supply chains for the global institutions and the likes of Bill Gates. Recharging the world economy is needed to enact the Great Reset of totalitarian feudalism as sponsored by the World Economic Forum in response to the Global Pandemic." I never realised the car industry has become so intertwined with global politics. Anyway enough of that, I just had a fab offer on car wow for a new car. 14% off the list price off an F Type - 300bhp petrol but they do even more enjoyable ones with a lot more HP and bigger engines even worse for the environment but so much more fun I guess. Lookers plc will come back but the margins are gonna get a lot tighter and more politically determined.
hotdog23: Any guesses as to the end of day share price when suspension gets lifted?Last close at 21p
woodwards26: Mmm Jabers Vertu are 50% higher than a suspended price but I get your logic.I subscribe to the theory that only invest in sectors you understand and mainly I only understand the motor trade.Last time the sector gave opportunities like this was 1998 to 2000 somewhere on here I will have posted about Vertu and Lookers over the years.Pendragon I've always been wary of, Vertu to me are the new kid on the block sometimes up at close to 60 normally around 35 and to me seem a touch high in these times. Lookers I feel are the strongest of the three although the market disagrees with me !Over the last few years Lookers shares have led the market and Vertu followed. Mostly lookers have been double Vertu. I don't see that refusing in the short term but 50 % above is my feel I
daz1712: How much is lookers worth if everything was sold this year? NAV is easy to calculate from the books but in reality this company has a much higher real value than just NAV A really bad situation which has yet to be finalised with possible fraudulent transactions and overstated profits isn’t the Nail in the coffin it’s a bad cold or flu, maybe a positive COVID-19 🤔but the companies underlying health is great. A recent post said they might not trade again, but everyday this year the management and staff are trading and getting on with selling and maintaining cars, the only pause is the share price and short term speculators
woodwards26: I think most dealers will cross back into a calendar year to date profit at the end of September. Then it's the hardest quarter but hopefully year end bonuses will be good.A dealer that say made 250k last year will most likely have been in loss around 100k at the end of May and wil still be in small loss now but should come out of September with 75 k ytd profit and looking for optimistic 100k by calendar year end .This is a far cry from can we break even this year still 150k per site down but not as bad as it could be.I believe most motor trade share prices are depressed on low expectations and the reality whilst a lot worse than last year is better than could have been foreseen 3 months ago.Keep watching and do some mystery shopping in your local dealerships to see if you can gauge how it feels
jabers1: Some interesting and extremely strong profits being made from used car stock, all bodes well for a bonanza this year for motor dealers as stock continues to be at a premium and all auction houses reporting 90% success regarding dealer disposals, this will counter any negativity from potential lower volumes from new sales. Retail Price Index | June 2020 3RD JUL 2020 June records largest used car price growth since January 2019 Auto Trader’s Retail Price Index recorded a 3.7% year-on-year increase in June 2020 (on a like-for-like basis) which was the largest monthly growth in used car prices since January 2019. The Index is based on observed pricing data from circa 900,000 vehicles every month, this took the average price of a used car in June to £13,949. June, the first full month of trading post lockdown for retailers in England, marks the third consecutive month of used car price growth, following the 0.1% and 1.9% recorded in April and May respectively. As well as the low supply of vehicles in the market (due in part to the slow reopening of auction houses post lockdown), this price growth reflects the huge surge in demand from car buyers. The Auto Trader marketplace recorded over 64 million visits last month, an increase of 29% on June 2019. There were also interesting trends in price driven by the age of the vehicle, with older cars seeing bigger increases. In June, the average retail price of a car aged over 10 years increased 6.7% over the previous year, and those aged five to 10 years increased 7.0% year-on-year. Newer cars aged below five years recorded a more conservative growth of 3% year on year. Auto Trader’s data scientists have also been tracking the pricing behaviour of retailers. During the lockdown period the number of retailers making price changes and the value of price adjustments was significantly lower than normal trading conditions. Whilst this has increased following the reopening of showrooms last month, the levels are still well below ‘normal’, pointing to the level of retailer confidence in market pricing. Pre-COVID-19, the number of retailers making daily price changes to their stock averaged between 2,500 and 3,000. Last week[1] a daily average of 1,816 retailers made price changes, which is 33% lower than the same period last year. In normal trading conditions, retailers adjusting their stock average between £250 - £550 per day. Further demonstrating the degree of confidence in the market, the average amount of each reduction last week was £256, so at the lower end of ‘normal’. Among those adjusting prices, 27% are increasing them. Commenting on these observations, Auto Trader’s director of data and insight, Richard Walker, said: “At Auto Trader, our valuations are based on observed price data from retailers. We don’t control it or set it, we simply reflect retailer pricing and ultimately, retailer reaction to market supply and demand trends. We’re seeing strong pricing trends at the moment driven by the surge in consumer demand post lock-down and we expect this to continue in the coming months. “The most successful retailers continue to achieve the best margins by utilising the retail back pricing philosophy. They use what is happening at a retail level to determine what they pay at trade. This approach feels more important than ever at a time when both the B2B and B2C markets will be driven by different factors.” Petrol prices rocket as low emission counterparts continue decline The impact of supply and demand dynamics in the market are evident in the price movement of internal combustion engines (ICE) and their low emission counterparts. At £14,789 diesel prices have increased 2.7% year-on-year following on from the 0.9% increase recorded in May. This is the highest level of growth since February 2019. However, it pales in comparison with the rate of growth in used petrol prices, which are up 5.3% year-on-year. At £12,697, it marks seven months of continued price growth and the highest increase recorded since October 2018. This is the result of high demand versus low supply in the market. The opposite is true for used alternatively fuelled vehicles (AFVs), which has seen a comparatively healthy supply in the market relative to demand. As a result, at £22,234, AFVs have recorded four consecutive months of price decreases, although the rate of contraction has begun to slow: from -1.5% in May to -0.7% in June. The average rate of price contraction for pure electric vehicles (EV) has remained relatively flat however, falling approximately 3% each month since February 2020. The average sicker price of a used EV in June was £25,786. Mike Jones, Chairman of Automotive profitability specialists ASE plc commented: “June was undoubtedly a phenomenally strong month for used cars, with many retailers recording record sales during the month. Consumers have emerged from the lockdown with an increased demand for personal mobility and this is reflected in the large monthly price growth reflected in the Auto Trader Retail Price Index, particularly amongst older vehicles. “As we predicted having watched the trends from other markets around the world as they opened up after the Covid-19 crisis, the fear of infection has driven an increased demand for car ownership as commuters remain fearful of public transport. The age of the cars increasing in prices, alongside the growth in petrol and diesel values, shows that this is a demand driven by a desire for individual transport rather than part of a wider green agenda.”
wobbly123: I have made it quite clear on a number of occasions that I am short Lookers.At the moment I wouldn't want to be long on any share. Share prices are getting back to near pre virus values, which in my opinion is madness as it will take many years (if ever) to get back to normal. If a company beats EPS shares jump, but those expected earnings were reduced only a couple of months ago. Normally I am long individual stocks, but that stopped Nov 19 as I thought markets were getting carried away. As for only saying negative things about Lookers, I can;t see anything to be positive about for that stock. Sub 10p stock for me. I won't feel bad if stock goes to 10p or 0p as everyone has the option to go long or short. That's what makes markets work. Some win some lose. Time will tell on Lookers (probably July)
jaf111: Struggling to understand recent 25% collapse in LOOK share price.....ok so PDG news on 12 June clearly a factor BUT 1. Lookers TU on 31 May pretty solid, as was Ints from Cambria (9 May) 2. Share prices of Cambria, Vertu and Marshall have hardly fallen by comparison to LOOK Time to buy LOOK (Don't currently hold) or sell CAMB / MMH (Do hold)?????
