makinbuks: The percentage short has broadly halved from the peak while the share price has rallied from 120p to 200p. Which factor is driving the other? PETS is still the 17th most shorted stock. If that were to halve again what would be the impact on the price? My guess is close to nothing but interested in other views
yump: There obviously is and will be a lot of uncertainty, which makes the resilience in the PETS share price quite curious. Perhaps it is just strong because its actual market is in no way related to what happens with politics, other than possibly having to stockpile some goods. I'm sticking with it until something more volatile happens upwards or downwards, as bought a lot along the bottom, when sentiment was in the 'doomed' camp !
texaspete2: Dare I say it but a good recovery in share price following ex dividend date last week
balancedviews: Remember funds/investors will be measuring the fund annually and have 'written off' the historic drops. So a this years view could easily be its gone up 30-40% in last 6 months lets get out when going good. I am nowhere near the Canadian pension plan (!!) however this mentality would be systematic. I bought composite 116 and have dropped 20% at 154 and 20% at 161 simply t crystallise gain, discretion better part of valour. At the start pets was my largest holding and i was buying at the 13% shorted. For what its worth I see it as stare in the 180-200 range. Share price involves huge sentiment so nothing is guaranteed. For what its worth I see it as a 180-200 share but the market is rammed with sentiments who knows I did buy a load back at 141 today I buy shares that i think have innate value but market sentiment is against them. e.g. another one i bought recently was BAT at 27 for example
crystball: The Canada Pension Plan Investment Board built up their 10% plus stake mainly in 2016 when the share price was well above £2 a share, so by selling now they are selling at a large loss. With PETS it seems like a game of snakes and ladders. Every now and then a large placing of shares causes the share price to fall dramatically. I don't think the strategy of PETS is wrong going forwards, but it is disheartening when this happens!
yump: So what's the explanation for the share price movements recently - someone must have seen it happen before. Price in a tight band for quite a while at recent highs, then a major investor exits. Is there any way of producing that stability deliberately so that the exit price is the best one for the exiting fund ? Or is it just that its one of the few retailers with a reasonably positive outlook, so the share price is well supported and the fund has just sold into strength?
muchodinero: results Well considering the half year update was more downbeat than was being stated in the previous management statements, revenues are still growing strongly. Looks like management have taken the opportunity to carry out some write offs (reduces tax bill also). Share price reaction is surprisingly robust considering the headline reduction in profit for half year. Shorts appear to have lost their appetite for PETS in the light of robust management actions and 7.5p dividend being re-stated. I'm quite happy to get a 6.5% yield with prospects of 10% share price growth. Also there is always the potential for PE to come back for PETS. Shorts won't enjoy paying a 7.5p dividend and paying at least the same again to borrow the stock. I think this will creep higher over the next 12 months based on the latest update and all factors mentioned. Aimho adyor!!!
muchodinero: Blackrock have reduced by 0.02%. Not sure why they even bothered,They are just playing silly beggars with PETS share price. Just hope that they get burned very soon.
cantrememberthis2: Pets at Home Group Plc (LON:PETS): Commentary On Fundamentals Kevin Zeng June 16, 2018 Building up an investment case requires looking at a stock holistically. Today I’ve chosen to put the spotlight on Pets at Home Group Plc (LON:PETS) due to its excellent fundamentals in more than one area. PETS is a financially-sound company with a a strong track record high-grade dividend payments, trading at a discount. Below, I’ve touched on some key aspects you should know on a high level. For those interested in digger a bit deeper into my commentary, take a look at the report on at Home Group here. Excellent balance sheet, good value and pays a dividend PETS is financially robust, with ample cash on hand and short-term investments to meet upcoming liabilities. This indicates that PETS has sufficient cash flows and proper cash management in place, which is an important determinant of the company’s health. PETS appears to have made good use of debt, producing operating cash levels of 0.55x total debt in the prior year. This is a strong indication that debt is reasonably met with cash generated. PETS’s share price is trading at below its true value, meaning that the market sentiment for the stock is currently bearish. This mispricing gives investors the opportunity to buy into the stock at a cheap price compared to the value they will be receiving, should analysts’ consensus forecast growth be correct. Compared to the rest of the specialty retail industry, PETS is also trading below its peers, relative to earnings generated. This bolsters the proposition that PETS’s price is currently discounted.
cantrememberthis2: Pets at Home Upgraded by Morgan Stanley today: Morgan Stanley upgraded Pets at Home to ‘equal-weight’ from ‘underweight’ on Friday following significant recent share price underperformance. The bank, which kept its price target on the stock at 125p, said that while it remains cautious about the company’s longer-term financial prospects, the issues are now fairly reflected in the share price. MS has had an ‘underweight’ rating on the stock since it initiated coverage shortly after the IPO in 2014, amid doubts about the sustainability of gross margins on the retail side of Pets’ business, while more recently it highlighted that many of its vet joint ventures are struggling to reach profitability. "Despite significant recent price investment, Pets at Home's Retail business still has a gross margin of more than 50%. We think this will prove difficult to maintain, given rising competition from discounters, supermarkets and online specialists." The bank said its concerns on these issues remain, but they are now priced in as the shares have almost halved since the beginning of last year and are now down around 60% from their 2015 peak. "Whilst earnings forecasts have fallen, the shares have de-rated significantly and now trade on a single-digit price-to-earnings multiple on consensus forecasts," Morgan Stanley said. "We think gradual further earnings downgrades are likely in the medium term, but we do not envisage a big profit warning anytime soon. Nor do we see the shares de-rating much further."
