Lookers stated this in their update: 'The used car market continues to be buoyant and values of used cars have remained stable in this period. '

Indeed, I might be reading this wrong, who knows - but I don’t trust this company from how it’s performed and what it has said since it’s IPO. They make a big song and dance on growing market share and turnover but from the numbers it’s clear their margins are wafer thin - and that’s the thing I think is coming under pressure and should surface in the next results. One month and counting. Good luck which ever side you’re on ;)

all very tricky/very unknown. Numis reiterated target price of 250p on 6th October. With Brexit people may be more keen on 'nearly new' as opposed to brand new car sales. Company said it was confident of growing market share. some resistance on chart at circa 150p - might have a clear run after that up to 160s. Could all come tumbling down as well. Who knows. Still holding for now. All IMHO. GLA.

Get past Brexit and things may turn for the better, however I think the risk of a serious downturn for the UK consumer are right around the corner, if not already here - there are red flags a plenty in the retail sector. I’m told there’s still business being pieced together here, with Numis so may see some further big trades.

However, I agree this sector is risky.

This from a triple i article from 25.10.17 on PDG: '...used car volumes are expected to continue to grow and Pendragon is still looking to double revenues from this sector in the five years to 2021.'

Inchcape 3rd quarter results in, good across all sectors except UK, quoting expected slow down and continuing margin pressures on vehicles.

Should see some TR1’s on the back of those trades - someone’s buying big, someone’s selling big. Really worth reading the Pendragon profit warning - the second half collapse is pretty spectacular, which would indicate the decline in the market is pretty recent. I think there’s better than even odds that MOTR are going to have to write down the carrying value of their inventory, so whilst “underlying221; may come in as they state, “exceptionals” could wipe that out. We will see in a month

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-41747940 Not sure if this applies to Motorpoint. Article says 'Gross domestic product (GDP) for the quarter rose by 0.4%, compared with 0.3% in each of 2017's first two quarters' Later on it says: 'In particular, computer programming, motor traders and retailers were the businesses that showed the strongest performance.'

yes, short but monitoring. I don't like the sector but in particular I don't like certain aspects of this company nor the way it reports. I'll see if I can get that Jeffries note as if he thinks PDG was just down to pricing pressure from a couple of manufacturers he's wide of the mark.

are you short Bumpa? according to the Jeffries analyst, Will Kirkness, Pendragon's problems are largely driven by pricing pressure from two premium manufacturers. 'The c.20% downgrade to full-year 2017 earnings per share will not be taken well but has been largely delivered by exceptional pricing pressure from two premium manufacturers,’; he said.

https://www.standard.co.uk/business/car-industry-in-crisis-as-giant-dealer-pendragon-tumbles-a3665276.html surprising as Evans Halshaw pricing is particularly keen, and if they’re suffering....?

Pendragon said everything was looking rosy prior to this ‘shock’ update. My bet is that Motorpoint will also ‘shock’ the market come results day plus likelihood they will have to write down the value of their inventory.

Outlook statement said company is confident of increasing market share. Perhaps PDG's woes are our gain? The Board continues to closely monitor customer confidence in light of the ongoing economic and political uncertainty. However, the Board is pleased with recent trading performance and remains confident that Motorpoint's independent and flexible model leaves it well placed to continue to grow market share. All IMHO. GLA.

Was there a big buy at 16.15 of 200,000 shares? Was there another huge buy at 16.16 of 1717000 shares?

some business being put together currently in this, between Numis & Shorecap, am told that the latters seller far outweighs the formers buyer though. 7 figure trade, may see it in due course if it goes though....

Profit warning from Pendragon today. Can this one really avoid what’s looking increasingly like a slump in the UK car market?
