Problem is that it could get substantially worse if the UK economic environment deteriorates. Margin for error here is still quite small

Looks like the market had already discounted it. I never like seeing the word "challenging" in a results statement , but at least the dividend is held , FWIW.

Hi topvest Having spent some considerable time looking at this today, I think you are probably right re 'opportunistic'. It would appear that: > the overwhelming majority of their estate is leased > as at 30/9/17 they had 372 but owned just 9 freehold/long leasehold sites (including two warehouse and distribution facilities) > Topps make infrequent freehold acquisition/disposals but this really only amounts to tinkerng around the edges and does not appear to be a core part of their strategy. No of stores at year end 2017: 372 2016: 351 2015: 347 2014: 346 2013: 336 2012: 327 2011: 324 2010: 321 No of freehold/long leasehold sites owned at year end 2017: 9 2016: 9 2015: 9 2014: 8 2013: 6 2012: 7 2011: 8 2010: 6 Freehold property disposals/acquisitions: 2017: 1 disposal, 1 acquisition 2016: 0 disposal, 0 acquisition 2015: 1 disposal, 2 acquisitions 2014: 1 disposal, 3 acquisitions 2013: 1 disposal, 0 acquisition 2012: 3 disposals, 2 acquisitions 2011: 0 disposal, 1 acquisition 2010: 1 disposal, 2 acquisitions

Probably opportunistic, I would guess. Good spot though.

I note in the latest Allsop commercial property auction that there are 3 lots being offered which are Topps Tiles sale-and-leasebacks; their trade counter unit in Orpington, Kent (lot 19) to be subject to a 20yr lease with no break options; a unit in Kirkcaldy, Fife, Scotland (lot 85) to be subject to a 15yr lease with a break option in yr10; and a unit in Stroud, Glos (lot 26) to be subject to a 10yr lease with no break option. HTTP://www.auction.co.uk/commercial/onlineCatalogue.asp I wonder what the motive for disposing of these freeholds is? Are they just taking advantage of the hot commercial property investment market while it lasts? Or do they have pressing needs for the cash e.g reduce gearing, reinvest "Out-specialising the Specialists" core strategy? From 2017 Annual Report: At the period end [30/9/2017] the Group held nine freehold or long leasehold sites, including two warehouse and distribution facilities, with a total carrying value of £16.5 million (2016: nine freehold or long leasehold sites valued at £16.2 million).

Tempus gave them a thumbs-up in todays Times. Trading has been topsy-turvy at Topps Tiles in recent years. The retailer is struggling because of weak consumer confidence and a slowdown in the housing market, both of which have added a dull finish to its performance. Britain’s largest supplier of tiles and other flooring is regarded as a bellwether of consumer sentiment and its latest results suggest that it has been caught up in the same gloom that is creeping up on the rest of the retail sector, as cautious consumers cut back on big-ticket purchases or renovating kitchens and bathrooms. Add to that the slowdown in housing transactions, which have barely moved for 12 months, and the signs mainly point south for the company. Its directors accept that the business is facing challenges amid “a softening of the underlying market”. Yesterday it reported a 2.2 per cent drop in comparable sales for the second quarter, sending the shares tumbling by more than 13 per cent to 69¾p. But there is no need to despair just yet. The retailer has been preparing a strategy that looks promising. Central to its plan is to gain more trade customers, more consistent and predictable with their purchases, leaving the business less exposed to the sporadic demand of high street consumers. In 2014, Topps began a loyalty scheme for trade customers, attracting 55,000 members. It has also strengthened its commercial business by striking deals with bars, restaurants and hotels. It is sensible for the company to pivot away from retail customers. It would be unwise to take for granted that the property market will return to the buoyant levels of the past few decades. The company is also facing price competition from Tile Giant and Tile Mountain. The latter, in particular, has been investing heavily and, apart from one shop in Stoke-on-Trent, it is run online so does not have to absorb the fixed costs of a 376-strong store estate. To combat price competition, Topps has been focusing on a premium offer, opening boutique stores with design consultation labs in the southeast. It is also refurbishing its shops. The strategy is considered an innovative, which inspires confidence in the company.

Yes, bit of an over-reaction today. Topps are a quality company and will bounce back. Weather has been awful and so there has been no Spring tailwind this year as yet.

"cudmore27 Feb '18 - 21:05 - 120 of 139 These should be £1+ easily purely based on the last quarters improved LFL. Rumour is the company is doing well with continued LFL growth. Well worth a punt purely on an share price recovery imho"

"we are retaining a cautious view of market conditions for the remainder of the year" Hmm. Does not sound like there is medium term optimism from the Board. Not exactly going to rejuvenate the share price I will continue to hold and hope.

2% decline in LFL is nothing compared to some retail companies performance recently. Think this is quite positive going forward. Will be topping up on the initial dip no doubt

Q2 showing a bit of a slow-down, but hardly surprising given the wider market and the terrible weather. Still a market leading performer, so happy to hold.
