I'm beginning to wonder whether these haven't maybe fallen far enough. If the second half matches the first then they will be on a sub 10 p/e and trading at a massive discount to NAV. The only thing that bothers me is that their stock goes up and up and up and this is where a lot of the NAV is. Couldn't they cut production and run stocks down a bit, hopefully this would reduce costs and generate some cash and leave the balance sheet looking a bit less wonky. Anyone else have a view? Arthur

RenewYes I know. I keep highlighting various issues on the blog posts on IC. I try to stay balanced but the tips and subsequent approach / spin are becoming farcical.On the IC website, click on the ticker for any share and you can get the past performance and recommendations from IC on a graph.You can then click on the IC logo on the graph for the tip comment.These make very interesting reading for PTD, NPT, POL, THAL, GBO, SGI and several more.

Bluerunner Its far worse than that.He drops the price he claims to have tipped his shares as they fall. ie I bought Pittards on his tip at 196p. I dont think hes mentioned that price since. The word badly needs to get out!!!

When the market is back in full swing in the New Year is when I expect the next slump to occur, as many holders will currently be on holiday, The warning signs have been there for some time and I seem to recall there was a RNS some time ago that suggested that Boyd was to be replaced. The faster that occurs and the seat is filled with someone that has credibility and deals with the serious matters that surround the inventory and takes a serious look at the policy of trying to build retail outlets, the outlook imo remains grim for private stakeholders.DYOR

RE: Simon Thompson - he has made some real corkers in the last year or so, included in his red faced tipping role of shame is Globo - a company which had all the warning signs of going bust and being a fraud I believe he has also tipped several Chinese scams in the past that have delisted leaving his readers with nothing. I think his main problem is that he simply does not dig very far past the published results, he is rather gullible and somewhat wet behind the ears. A typical 2nd grade accountant sort! ---------------------------------------------------- RE - The present warning - you can scroll back to see what i've been saying for a while now, however it seems some of you guys may have rumbled the future. 1) Get shareholders to fund a) Big fat salaries and expenses & b) New manufacturing facilities and plant. 2) Run the business unprofitably and build up masses of inventory (to shareholders detriment). 3) Take the business as it stands to the brink and lose the support of your bankers. 4) Put the business through a prepack and buy it out at a discount by: a) making good your bank and any creditors & b) shutting the door on everyone else, especially the old shareholders (who then exit stage left, with sweet FA).

I can only form a view that the boards strategy is to collapse the share price and then take the company private for a derisory sum. Then jack up salaries/bonuses in a private company.So many years of failure and still the same people in charge. The ceo must know something about boyd

boyd should focus on his axminster venture - however i guess this is on its way towards the cliffs as well - best would be if he recruit the pittards CFO to that company as well - she is totally and utterly incompetent. and that would no doubt accelerate also axminsters´ "belly up" process.

What I am wondering is:- a) Why is this tipped by Simon Thompson in IC? b) Why did I not do more research? c) Why did I not sell earlier? At least I only bought a tiny holding, sold this morning.

it seems Pittards approach the cliff again - but this time i doubt the swedish investor gillenhammer will be back to save them - the chairman is the same mr Boyd, and the CEO is still not removed. the CFO is completely incompetent - so who is going to back this team when the bank is knocking on their door again early 2016? some drastic action is clearly required when it comes to throwing the team out. but they will not find good replacement unless the financials are sorted out in a credible way - the enormous stock no doubt being the main hurdle. maybe this will be the first administration in a public company 2016?

As the ceo stuffs his face over Christmas he can reflect on yet another year of great achievement. How this management survives is beyond me. There must be bodies buried somewhere...... The FD's claim to fame is to build stock levels to unbelievable levels-ties up working capital and indeed cash.

As expected but I guess this will mean even higher levels of stock, and when the accounts are done and dusted, will it not be time to put a red line through these huge stock levels? So I expect more bad news before we see any real figures.

Hadn't thought of that one -its the perfect poison pill in a way. You can take us over at a big premium but we stay in charge ....'er thanks but no thanks. I'm sure the ceo knows alot about leather but I think this company needs to be run by someone who knows nothing about leather. Note for eg today a perfect example. Elementis a mixed bag chemicals company has just appointed a new ceo -someone who is ex BP Lubricants and before that managed in consumer goods.

I doubt they would cooperate if a predator came along. They would all be out of jobs. I suspect the explanation of why its being operated so ineptly is so management can ensure their actions would deter any sensible approach.

Thanks. Yes the stock position is crazy and would probably need to be written down if the company was to be valued by a predator.I thought Godfrey could help drive a move up the value chain but it seems the torpor of this company has affected him as well.

the board/management is absolutely not protected by the shareholder structure - however the Company is now in such bad shape that any predator will require a substantial discount to market value, with ref to the enormous inventories of doubtful value and uncertainties related to the ethiopian business. mr boyd is the man to really blame in this as he has protected a less than competent management team - in particular the CFO. boyd seems to believe he can walk on water - however he is rather wet by now and in urgent need of some scuba diving equipment!

Some interesting views. Is there any alignment of interests between this board of directors and its shareholders. Difficult to tell whether this lot are bothered whether the share price is 90p or 20p as they probably feel they are bid proof. I recall reading the esteemed PP is his regular column being scathing about this company and the management -difficult to disagree.

reg is an honorable and hard working man but not strong enough when "backed" by mr boyd as chairman and an absolutely incompetent woman as CFO - her name has escaped me, for which i am most grateful. this latest fund raising was most certainly their last "go" - we will now face some substantial stock provisions and reduced production volumes and "off we go"........50p next. mr boyd is of course the person to ultimately blame - intelligent as he is, but totally arrogant and full of himself.
