Still feel the same towards PETS. Quite undervalued given recent results and deserving of the re-rate it should have towards £2. Especially given the 5% dividend yield.

That will come for sure, given all these fundamentals... and just looking at new openings in the first 6 months it's quite easy to forse at lease an increase in revenues/ebitda if not margins... that should be enough don't you think?

Crystball, I would hope so. I think it is an undervalued and investible company. It seems glued to 1.60 at the moment. As soon as it moves above or below that price, it quickly snaps back. Could be a good entry point now, but I am patient.

What else is needed - smart money buying as opposed to selling?

Strong Balance sheet with low debt ratios,interesting growth prospects (both mkt and company), mkt leader, improved/ing online services experience... high costumer satisfaction and brand new IBM developed app. What else is needed?

andyj, surely the several directors who have bought shares in their own company, know more than the shorting funds?

Good post andy, to me this is a totally different proposition to CLLN. I think a degree of patience is required and i believe trend will start to reverse. Recently overheard american tourist over here holidaying and his comment was" i think everybody over here has a dog". We certainly are a nation of animal lovers.

andyj, same here on CLLN where I managed to get out at around 136p but still a hefty loss. Can't see PETS having the same problems but it does make you nervous! They do seem to be making an effort to upgrade the stores and make them more pleasant to hopefully draw people in, but I take your point about prices. Having said that, I have noticed they have been doing a few "buy one get second half price" deals of late so maybe they are addressing that, but what effect on margins?

Difficult to see people in the UK having declining numbers of pets, so their customer base should be at least stable, if not grow steadily and as mentioned above, they should be recession proof. The balance sheet is reasonable, the yield good, the PE low and a lot of the competition fears appear written into the price. I am very tempted, but two things deter me.1. As a pet owner, on a recent visit to the UK, I went eager to load up with goodies for my pets. I found their prices ridiculously expensive, in some cases (Dreamies) double those in the supermarket. My feeling was that they were trying to profit unduly from my love of pets (which obviously they are), but the key is not making the customer feel that. I also found the staff lacked knowledge of the products.2. They are heavily shorted. I also was burnt on CLLN and the worry persists that they ( the shorting funds) know more than is publicly available. I will keep watching...

This one is certainly frustrating, I'm currently down 27.3% after buying at the IPO then averaging down. Tempted to buy more but will it ever stop falling?

Shorttracker showing an open position of 8.79%. Get the feeling this could keep this low for a while. Quite a discount from initial offering.

Feel for you man, having CLLN, I put it on my monitor list a couple of months back out of curiousity to see how it went with the increasing shorts on it. Never had any interest buying into it, had a bad feeling about it as where I am in N. Ireland companies that had Housing Executive maintainence contracts have never done well and the previous one here Red Sky indeed went bust. Sad situation for all CLLN holders.

I agree alibx, what I like about PETS is their balance sheet, I got pretty badly burned with CLLN but, their debt levels were spiraling out of control and continue to do so, also, completely different sector, this should prove fairly resilient if we have another recession. wllm

Agree, but where the difference is, is that Pets is a lightly traded share compared to Mrw and it's easy to shift the price and ruin confidence in the share price even with no negative outlook or indications they have already knocked 1/3 of it's value off already. Morrisons and Tescos were my bigist earners last year, when confidence in reatilers was at a low and shorters were loading up on them I bought heavily and had a good return for it, Pets again is a good company still expanding it's Vets for Pets franchise and adding more grooming services to it's stores which are both high income generating parts of the business, even if the retail part was to slow down, which I doubt, the other high income parts more then make up for it, so for me it's too cheap at these prices, and given it's results latley no reason for the share price to be so cheap. Although I thought it was too cheap when I bought in at 171 avg, so what do I know. As I said...easily manipulated on negative volume which is totally unrelated to business model and outlook. All IMHO of course. Looking forward to the divi payment on Friday.

Yep, not arguing with that.Still makes going long on a heavily shorted share a little more risky. Those funds don't just a borrow a few million shares for a whim

HAve a look at the shorting chart of morrisons against it's share price graph.... CllN totally different issue, Pets still increasing profits, and expanding, not drowning in debt and suffering from reduced conrtacts and margins.

Potentially. Today's move closed strongly outside of the recent range. Will be interesting to see if it closes back in tomorrow. Also, maybe to do with CLLN collapse and the fact that they were heavily shorted and now proved right. PETS has a 10% short position, which could be proved wrong or right, but my guess is positions will be further considered when going against huge short positions.

Those sells could be buys, who knows. Depends when the order was placed and the size of the order. It will be interesting to see if it say out side of 164. Seems to be the top end of the value area and an ascending triangle.

Some big sales coming through here. Any comments from those that have been here for a while?

Shorts dipped slightly today also: hxxp://shorttracker.co.uk/company/GB00BJ62K685/all This has been oversold, but I'm pleased to have got in here at such a discount to the IPO. The Vet and grooming in store offering really will pay off here and will be resilient to the likes of Amazon discounting.
