Show me a CEO who started to believe in his own infallibility and then you will see more mistakes

This is really not about today. None of it is. There is a bigger plan. He may need to change some management, but MA can be nothing only astute. No daddy's money. No anything. Got there himself. That's more than most ceos ever did. Man has a plan.. .

Effortless CoolioYou appear to be looking backwards, but the market looks forwards. Leases will have been renegotiated, central costs will be stripped out, profitability restored. Mr Market agrees with me & has increased the market cap of SPD by GBP23million this morning. A great return on a GBP12.7million outlay.

One thing i always found in markets. Opinions and perceptions never outweighted money positioned. Its why what seems irrational, wasn't. The money was there all along. To some it's irrational this isn't 180 or 160 post report. Not irrational at all

Doesn't really matter what our individual perceptions are though does it? As long as the market likes it and we are on the right side of that.

Mike Ashley should have bought Karen Millen and Coast for his House of Fraser stores instead of Jack Wills: Https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-49247514 Bad move imo.

In its last published accounts, Jack Wills had net assets of £192k, i.e. effectively was worth zero. The £19.2m profit is arrived at after crediting a spectacular £34.4m of exceptionals related to wiping out an intercompany debt. The true underlying result was a loss of £15.2m.

Since Jack Wills has gone into administration since they were published, things have clearly got worse, not better. In summary, SPD have added another complete basket case to their portfolio. It would be interesting to understand why you consider this acquisition for £12.75m to be "a sound piece of business". effortless, Spot on mate its good to read some proper research. The business not so good when you remove the wheat from the chaff you are left with chaff!

Have a feeling you did well anyway ignoble. Something a bit different about you, which in my book is always a great thing.

Aye He does appear to have some enormous cash flow he can utilise. As the gentleman above commented, in a few years MA could look like a genius if it all turns around in his favour. Otherwise, it could be very tough Only time will tell.. At least he is prepared to have a go.. Wish I had his nerve Fortunately, I am too old to need the hassle.

SPD are in essence, doing what we all do. Most smart investing is done in times of recession. Their sector has that and more. If your ever going to expand, great time to begin. They have made some errors but on the whole , what looks crazy now may indeed look like pure genius in 5 years time. That one is for the mystics

As a humble observer, it never ceases to amaze me that MA appears to have an endless supply of millions... None of my business, I suppose

Jack Wills had gross assets of £98,965,000 and made a net profit (after exceptional items) of £19,206,000.A sound piece of business to acquire this for £12,750,000.
