undervaluedassets: I think the "unethical" issue has surely been NOT paying staff properly. That is what has been the driver of the decline. The Guardian and the BBC have harried Mike and SPD to death over these issues. The recovery lately is surely about putting these things right and treating staff decently as much as it is about anything. And quite right too. Interesting to note that on a straight share price performance basis SPD has outperformed Next both year to date and on a 10 year basis. (calculation does not include dividends) Dont believe me - take a look on Google finance. Dividends ... well interestingly Mike stopped paying divis in 2009 and from that point in 2009 to the peak in 2014 the share price put on 2700%. The decline of the last 3 years has been about corporate governance not the lack of a dividend. As for tired - he is as ambitious as ever isn't he. Hardly tired. They will reap the reward . They own too much of the high street no to.
undervaluedassets: FINL yes but also - Read across from Next. Where ordinary results are getting a good response today. (This is because ordinary results are beating much lowered expectations. And the NXT share price is very low.) Much the same is true here. SPD has become the stock of low expectations. And the share price is very low. And of course it is in the same business as Next - clothes retail. As I have said there is a very low bar here to beat here.
discodave4: pps aaahhh it was my old mate undervalued assets who thinks the DEB balance sheet is sound......wouldn't know a solid BS if it fell on his head.You do know how MA's put option works don't you undervalued?. Just for you, a put option is the ability to sell shares in a company over a specific period and at a specific price. The buyer of the option is the one who decides whether to exercise it.In this case, Sports Direct is the writer of the option. It receives a premium payment but has no control over whether the shares change hands. The buyer, who has not been publicly identified, is the one who makes the decision.If Debenhams' share price falls significantly, Sports Direct would either be forced to become a significant shareholder – at a loss – or pay the party on the other side of the option in cash. If the share price rises, the buyer would probably not exercise the option and Sports Direct would not end up with the shares.As a result, for the period of the option, Debenhams will live with the prospect that Sports Direct will become a large shareholder if its share price falls.mmmm makes you think doesn't it, particularly after the recent holdings RNSDD
nortic 007: Just dug this up but it's a couple of days old.Good weekend all.Sports Direct chart breakout could spell big upsideBy Lee Wild | Thu, 10th August 2017 - 13:18Share thisSeven weeks ago, high street budget sports chain Sports Direct (SPD) published horrible-looking full-year results. Revenue was up, but margins had crumbled and underlying profit had crashed by 59%. But the share price is up over a third since, and technical analysis suggests there could be further upside to come.Sports Direct had become a pariah stock following all the furore around zero-hours contracts, profit warnings, departing executives and boozy board meetings.Admittedly, the selling looked to be over given the shares had traded sideways for a year, but few anticipated what has happened since July.Closing at 300p prior to results day, the share price is now above 400p for the first time since April 2016. Clearly, investors were happy to ignore deteriorating margins, a truckload of provisions and sterling's post-referendum crash, which crushed profitsMore interesting was the hiring of turnaround specialist Jon Kempster as finance director, and owner Mike Ashley's insistence that trading in the firm's new generation flagship stores is "exceeding our expectations". Traders also liked his confidence in growing underlying cash profit by 5-15% in the year to April 2018.In terms of the charts, this sharp move higher is significant.Having already broken above two potential resistance levels, Sports Direct shares have blasted above a third, more important number. Closing higher than 412p puts the shares above a major level whose origins can be traced back to 2012/13 (see above).From here, there's a possible hurdle at around 442p, but bulls will point to levels around 513p and 572p where the share price fell dramatically following a damaging profits warning. That followed a prior crash after an investigation uncovered "Victorian" working conditions at its warehouse in Shirebrook, Derbyshire.These so-called manipulation gaps often get filled over time. Achieve that here and investors could generate big profits.However, billionaire Mike Ashley may be an accomplished businessman, but he is unpredictable, too. He also warns about "short-term fluctuations in underlying EBITDA, particularly given the continued uncertainty surrounding Brexit".While the charts look interesting, this is one for the bold. Dropping much below 410-412p may start alarm bells ringing. Bears would sell this one and set a tight stop loss, pointing out that the shares are heavily overbought here. One to watch.
ltcm1: Personally I don't see much upside for the SPD price. MA seems to be a world expert at paying far too much for distressed business. He does seem highly exposed to the 'bad Brexit' and the increase in the living wage. The Goals Soccer investment makes sense but his buys of Debenhams, Findel, Game Digital just expose SPD to all the same problems that could afflict the main company, only a whole lot worse most likely. It's like he is doubling down and MA doesn't seem to be very good at gambling. The fact is he should have started the move upmarket in flagship stores about five years ago. And the smaller ones are sad and dated. Also there is MA himself. I mean the penny dropped with the Ryanair guy and he realised his image wasn't good for business. SPD should be a likeable brand that has a sense of fun and gives something back but instead MA has got into all these other problem investments. Good luck if you are long but just interested what you think of all the other ventures.
stokiematt: @DD Used it for years on various sites. Combination of my name and place of birth/team support. I can't decide if all the bad news is already priced in. I'm sure there will be another announce to nudge the share price down. If not can't see any support if the share price was to rise above 300p either.
discodave4: Sad Act - "They set the average at £3", Yep, but that doesn't mean they cannot buy above this, but the brokers have been told not to. Ask yourself why!.Why has the buyback not been reflected with an increased share price?."The only time a buyback is useful is when the shares of that company are undervalued. This is the ONLY time a company should buyback their shares" - Really!, never read such a load of garbage in all my life, you should do more research, try Lord Wolfson.Do you know what the buyback ROI or equivalent rate of return is?Would your money have been better invested elsewhere or distributed as a dividend?Your under a misguided belief that these are undervalued, they are not. The share value has not appreciated due to the buyback and the fair value (IMO) is less than the current price (okay just a sad act mongo opinion!). The basic argument that the share buyback means they are undervalued is completely flawed and disingenuous, why?, because they are using your money to buyback the shares not their own money. It's purely a financial tool to enhance eps (in the hope this will be reflected in the share price) and also to increase the BOD's respective percentage holding (in particular MA's), possibly also to issue themselves share options - none of the shares have been cancelled yet!. The key here though as to why this buyback will not succeed is that there must be the prospect of sustained long term growth - which is not likely IMO.If you don't wish to discuss then just filter me!.DD
nortic 007: Didn't dip and the closing auction . I'll take down 0.9 % all day long. Would like to think SPD share price have absorbed a lot of so called bad news.
scapital: If anything could negatively impact the SPD share price a bad deal with BHS is right up there.
osirisra: Well they don't seem very wise at the moment as SPD is down 20p from where I bought and I sold CEY to fund the SPD purchase (CEY up 6% since I sold). That is the market for you, sometimes it takes your level headed thinking and knocks it sideways. Not to worry though, my reasons for buying SPD stay the same. Let's also not forget that we have the Euro's coming up this summer, along with The Olympics. Fingers crossed that the first set of results out post these two events will be a rocket under the SPD share price.
