muzmanoz: There are reasons to buy following the final results and brief update where there was only uncertainty before. Good dividend, trading doesn't appear to have gotten worse, B&M going well, online sales increasing, share price drop looks over done. I have no reason to believe it but I had concerns that they had lost a major customer like B&M. Goodmans' goods appear to me to be more prevalent on B&M shelves than they were but looks like that's not the case. I don't go into B&M enough (other than to fuel my cherry pepsi max addiction) to gauge it.

muzmanoz: 2 delayed share sales totalling c150,000 shares on low volume doesn't help the share price.

middlesboroughfc: The statement was only for the first six weeks in a period which is 6 months The seventh and eight week could have been bumper cos the discounters need to fill those shelves, Retail stocks are flying. If they say they have recovered this will double. B and M share price ----> ALL TIME HIGH

muzmanoz: John09 I like your analysis. Good that the discounters are still expanding. An article I read in a retail journal from June says that Action has 150 stores in Germany which should be increased to 180 by the end of the year. The chain opened 197 new stores in 2016, in Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Luxembourg and the Netherlands. From past company info, B&M and Action are Up's biggest customers. Looks promising. Good that the warehouse at Heron Mill is now ready if they are increasingly supplying goods on a landed basis and online. I seem to remember reading (maybe from the prospectus) that supply on a landed basis carried a higher margin. The article in SCSW didn't tell us anything we didn't already know. I wonder whether they met the directors before the trading update. Also, the trading update and SCSW say there are 4 "pillars to growth" European discounters 65% growth UK Supermarkets 95% Online sales 64% International ?? (sales into Netherlands and France have been strong) But overall growth is only 39%. Anyone any ideas as to why overall growth is low compared to the "pillars" The only thing I could come up with is either international sales have fallen or that they have provided private branded goods and that these sales have reduced or been cannibalised by own branded sales but I have nothing to back that up. I'm a holder and think that the share price is now undervalued given forecasts, discounters continuing expansion, Heron Mill, scope for growth of brands. Hopefully the share price will start increasing now although we might need more news/sight of the final results in November. DYOR

sefton1: markcheesywotsits is missing. He said that the share price would be 150p in a couple of days two weeks ago. Is he doubling down or has he dumped his shares? I think that we should be told.

muzmanoz: It seems wrong that the directors are entitled to bonuses for hitting EBITDA targets for the fy17 when the share price has tanked. Mind you, on current form, they might struggle to meet the £1.66 share price needed for future bonuses.

muzmanoz: I've just been to my local B&M. It might be my bias having watched the UPGS share price fall, but there seems to be a lot more Goodmans branded products.

john09: It's ok found itA growth warning has halved the share price of Ultimate Products only six months after its senior managers took home £50 million in a flotation.The company behind brands such as Salter and Beldray household products said that trading conditions had deteriorated to such an extent since the end of the financial year that it was unlikely to generate any revenue growth in the coming 12 months.The company had boasted of 22.3 per cent revenue growth between 2014 and 2016 in its initial public offering prospectus.Its extremely bearish outlook in a pre-closing trading update yesterday caused its shares to plummet by 106p, or just over 50 per cent, to 104p.Andrew Gossage, managing director of Ultimate Products, who banked just over £10 million at the float in March, said that the decline in performance in recent weeks had been a result of an overall "tougher environment" for general merchandise.He said that consumer discretionary spending was under pressure and that rising food price inflation was leading to lower confidence overall among shoppers, "which is inevitably being reflected in purchasing behaviour".Other directors also made handsome gains when Ultimate Products joined the stock market. Simon Showman, co-founder of the company and chief executive, made £23.7 million, while his fellow co-founder Barry Franks banked £13.1 million.Some of the company's biggest City shareholders are also sitting on paper losses. They include Blackrock, Schroders, Legal & General, M&G and Royal London Asset Management.It is a sharp fall from grace for Ultimate Products, which floated at 128p a share and whose stock price had been on the rise since then, helped in part by the announcement of an interim dividend at the half-year. On Friday its shares closed at 210p.Yesterday's surprise warning was buried at the end of an otherwise upbeat statement about its trading in the year to July 31.One market source said that Ultimate Products had been billed as "a high-growth story and everyone got quite excited about it" at the float, where it was advised by Cenkos Securities, which is believed to have made £1 million in fees, and Bell Pottinger, the public relations firm that is fighting for its survival. The source added: "This outlook statement is very bearish so it seems as if consumer sentiment has fallen off a cliff."Ultimate Products supplies its merchandise to supermarkets and general retailers and although it operates in 38 countries, three quarters of its revenue comes from Britain. It is trying to increase its international exposure and says that it is gaining traction in Germany, but it is vulnerable to the vagaries of the UK's highly competitive retail market.Revenue growth at Ultimate Products in the coming year has also been affected by a change in a contract with one European retailer, which has pushed between £4 million and £5 million of revenue into the 2019 financial year.Mr Gossage said that he believed that the company was well positioned to ride the consumer downturn and that any concerns that Ultimate Products' flotation had been over-hyped were incorrect. "We have spoken to investors and we do think this is a situation of the moment but fundamentally we are a very strong business," he said. "The management own half of the equity in this business and we are rolling up our sleeves to get this sorted."Ultimate Products, which also sells Russell Hobbs cookware under licence, said that its group revenue would rise by 39.1 per cent to £110 million and its underlying profits for the year would be above market expectations.

grahampaul1977: Citytrader66 - I think the sell off has been overdone. On current prices, the p/e would be around 12 to 13 times, so trading at a discount to other sector peers and if we're now saying that forecast revenues and earnings will not reflect any growth, the forward p/e is now at a discount to the sector. And all of this is even before the impact of an improved current year performance has been baked into the share price. I realise that a lot of folk have had their fingers burnt quite badly on this stock, but even ignoring any long term growth prospects the share price now looks cheap. For what its worth, I got in at £1.18 per share and I still think that on those levels there is room for some gains which admittedly might come over a matter of weeks or months rather than days.

masurenguy: Shares halve at Ultimate Products months after bosses take home £50m Just over six months after listing in a flotation where senior management took home more than £50m, Ultimate Products issued a warning on growth that halved its share price yesterday. In a pre-close trading update, the company behind brands such as Salter and Beldray said that trading conditions had deteriorated to such an extent since the end of its financial year that it was unlikely to generate any revenue growth in the next 12 months. The extremely bearish outlook from the company — which boasted of 22.3% revenue growth between 2014 and 2016 in its initial public offering prospectus — caused its shares to plummet by 106p, or just over 50%, to 104p. Andrew Gossage, managing director of Ultimate Products, who banked just over £10m at the float, said that the decline in performance in recent weeks had been a result of an overall “tougher environment” for general merchandise. He said that consumer discretionary spending was under pressure and rising food prices inflation was leading to lower confidence overall among shoppers, “which is inevitably being reflected in purchasing behaviour”. Other directors also made handsome gains when Ultimate Products joined the stock market.
