Ignoble a three year treble bottom. If there was a game here in play, they sure shook out the market at a nice spot today. Assuming...they wanted to get cheaper shares etc, what better time and place? It was perfection Only an assumption

Must admit, I thought the stock would fall a lot more than it did today.

aren't tax penalties for when you fail to pay an assessment by the due date? which makes me think someone has been sticking letters from the tax man in the bin

The 1829 RNS on the Belgian tax is an attempt to clarify. Does it help?

kinwah, Good detective work. Evidently the Belgium tax authorities do not accept his argument over tax, and penalties normally given when something is not above board.

18bells, Nothing wrong in buying beaten up companies if your own business is making fantastic and growing profits and you understand the companies you want to turn around. However Sports Direct was on declining profits and in completely different sector than HOF something he didn't understand. Or put it this way he doesn't appear to have understood the market. Its a different ballgame selling high end fashion to stack it high discount. Totally different concept. The guys shown no previous knowledge of the cycle business whatsoever yet he has taken on a business on which was loss making. But to go about taking on so many store groups so many fashion brands most of which were struggling and expect to turn them all around quickly was a very tall order particularly when there are too many retailers out there in any event and too many brand names. Many of the brands were no longer fit for a younger generation they were meant to die not put back on oxygen and given an adrenalin boost. When all the organs were dying it was a waste of resources. The Observer was bang on with their article the demise which hasn't fully materialised as yet is all of his own making. He has shown an arrogant and egotistical approach to his own capabilities blaming everyone else for the situation he has caused to the company, there is nothing else to blame but himself. No one forced him to take a stake in Debenhams when the company was indebted and no future and no one forced himself to buy another High Street chain in House of Fraser when the concept and bricks and mortar had their day. He will need an awful lot of luck to get out of the mess he is in, it wont be enough relying on other people to sort out the mess from here on and time is not on his side the retail environment getting worse, and the clock is ticking all the time with a tax bill of hundreds of millions to sort out. Maybe he knows something the city does not only he knows. However I don't have faith in the man and buyers need to be very cautious from here on the stock is high risk at the moment.

I think it's smart by Belgium. A deeper play in force for some arrangement post brexit. SPD will be exonerated. I'm not sure how etc but I reckon its just another card in a bigger game. Jobs need protecting. Gov will be in offices discussing it with the Bels

I've just had a look at Belgian TVA or VAT as we would call it. Belgium has a complicated 5 rate structure. However sporting goods and clothes are on the maximum rate of 21%. There is a reduced rate of 6% for admittance to sporting venues. Surely Sports Direct haven't been running an exercise in VAT avoidance by claiming they are running a Football stadium and not a sports goods shop. There's also a special parking rate for certain transactions where VAT is only 12%. I don't see how the Belgian authorities have got this wrong as for sports goods and clothes it looks like bog standard VAT is payable. I'm beginning to think there might have been something rotten in the state of Belgium to misquote from Hamlet.

Ashley was buying up beaten up companies like a novice investor buying a share at rock bottom without looking at the forecast why the share price was rocket bottom. problem for MA now he has a bottom draw full of beaten up companies with an expiry date causing more misery for a novice

It did early morning but clawed back but clawed back more than I thought it would but its early days. The share price still lost over 50% on a years basis when the market up on a year.

I became concerned about Mike Ashley's inept ability months before the company went into administration he seemed to me to be all over the place and not got a clue about the law. The guy was lucky with Sports Direct but I suspect its gone as far as it could and he thought he had the ability to turn round broken companies that has been his downfall. They may well bring down the whole group. The share price didn't end up as bad as I thought it would but its still early days.

Yeah but look at MA's performance these last two years. And that rambling opus Friday. Plus he demanded a showdown with Debenhams board a few months back only to be told he didn't own any shares!!! He isn't the same beast he was 10 years ago. Maybe it is all the binge drinking, who knows.

I went in 50% lot last Friday 245. A gamble the news wouldn't be brutal. But a calculated gamble. If bad I'd buy 30% lot on Monday low. And now last 20% of full lot is ordered at 245p where i believe the year run money is. It will be volatile. But I truly believe anyone with a 300p+ target here will strike by December 1st. That's my aim. This board on the ftse has the most to lose re share price to personal wealth... And ive no doubt creative expectations shall be produced. Legally of course Then il dump it. Start of 2020 would be dodgy to hold.
