Shoe zone normally have staff in China looking after sourcing and I imagine QC. As an employer, are they ensuring that they stay in place? It would also be interesting to know how many of Shoe Zone's supply factories are back to work after the extended NY holiday. I believe key industries went back to work today, but that doesn't include exporters of commodity goods. I also wonder how much stock is held to buffer the supply chain.

Buy before 27 Feb to get the next dividend of 8p which is about 4.7%. Full year divi this year was 11.5p or 6.8%

My feet are wide and shortish, so size is not enough for a good fit most of the time. But then I would never order shoes online with no physical store available, but would definitely click and collect to try them, or possibly order them online and return to store.

yes, going back to the return rate this is a key point for shoezones business model. As you say clothing online retailers (for all the positives of the trading model) suffer enourmously with returns. It's the most challenging part of it. Shoes are a little less problematic becsuse the issue of fit is less lileky to be a problem. Often people will order 3 sizes of clothing just to ensure one will fit (and send the other 2 back). They will also order 3 different colours and perhaps 2 slighlty different styles. Wih shoes the size is usually your size (Pretty much usually fits). In terms of styling and colours it tends to be less of "how does this suit me" than with clothes. We've all been there where we like the look of a product, try it on and find it just doesn't suit me. Shoes rarely work that way, and dare I say it at the cheaper end of the market it is less likely to be about styling and more about practicalities. There is also a lot more "it'll do" attitude when you are paying £10 as opposed to £200 (where if you are not 100% happy you send it back). I also must add here that click and collect and store presence to compliment online is highly useful here. I have felt for a little while now that SHOE is heading towards an almost perfect balance of thse 2 and that reatil, although still in an ever changing evolution, is really not just about online but in fact about combining the benefits of all distribution channels (both on the supply and demand sides).

Amazing that SHOE's online return rate is only 11%. That must make them one of the most efficient online clothing operations around (most are about 50% returns). ...And 80% of those returns are direct to stores as well thus reducing costs further.

I thought the mark down on results day was unwarranted and so topped up,first purchased recently @138-140. For me it's an income stock so I dont expect massive capital appreciation. The simple question is - is the income sustainable, it looks to be. Plus they have a habit of returning excess capital to shareholders. Buying before the next div. - in a months time - equates to 11.4% yield over 13 months at current buy price.

Underlying the PE is about 10. But with several positive trends (growing and profitable online, reducing rents, Big Box stores clearly going well and the new hybrid format looking exciting too), I find this an easy share to hold at this price. Yield looks sustainable at 11.5p (circa 7%) and in years with special dividends (two out of the last four at 8p) this approaches 12%. I am cautiously pencilling in a 4p special dividend for next year and improved earnings as a likely median earnings scenario - which would obviously likely be accompanied by an improved share price. But if some of those good metrics add underlying growth to a less difficult year, of course things could get considerably better. I didn't comment earlier in case the price dropped further. I would have liked a little top-up!

I was impressed by the results and their conservative approach to their forecasting, and so added on the open. We'll be doing a section on Retail include Shoe Zone on Small Caps Live at 11am today (or catch up later): hxxps://discordapp.com/invite/vBQjDaZ

Good post Thorpematt. Have some of these in my wife's ISA and happy to sit and receive the dividend and slowly watch it rerate. Think this should be closer to £2

The PD really is of little concern given its size. The cash pile would comfortably wipe it all out. The write down in property is prudent and tax-sensible but of no effect to the cash earning power. Given the underlying ability to spin off close on £10m PBT annually (despite hefty ongoing dividends) it's hard not to see the value of a company which current has an EV of less than £70m; a growing online presence and a 23% drop in rents. The average 2.1 year lease means that these will continue to benefit. Many will look at the 7% yield and see that this year's cover is deficient but the headline figure misleads against normalised earnings which comoftably allows the Board to be confident in maintaining the dividend througout its investmentment in new stores and formats. As Fincap noted in their morning note:- "A refreshed executive team (with the previous CEO returning to the role and the COO moving to the Interim Executive Chairman role – together, they own 50.01% of SHOE), has significantly stepped-up the pace and vigour of executing the operational strategy. Management revitalisation therefore looks an interesting juncture in the SHOE equity story. We believe that the restored positive trading momentum of the last few weeks of FY19 and the encouraging FY20 outlook statement provide evidence to support our view of a reinvigorated focus already delivering benefits." and as Paul Scott noted in his report yesterday: "My opinion - of the 2 retailers I've looked at today, Topps Tiles (LON:TPT) and Shoe Zone (LON:SHOE) my view is that SHOE is by far the better bet at the current modest valuation. Its >7% dividend yield looks great, and should be sustainable. I see the dip in earnings this year for SHOE as probably being a temporary glitch, rather than a more worrisome trend. There's plenty of positive stuff in the narrative today, to imagine that profits should stabilise or recover in future.
