The last decade when nearly EVERY SINGLE HOUSEHOLD in the UK redesigned all their interior living spaces was in the 1960s.. The same economic conditions are now in place - massive government spending and a whole new approach to life (work from home): Https://www.cityam.com/uk-public-borrowing-unexpectedly-picks-up-as-debt-pile-hits-1960-level/ (Harold Wilson - the last PM the UK had that was openly left wing - bought us "White Heat of technology", The Concorde, the 1966 World Cup, The Beatles and the modern way of living..

@netcurtains: Good initiative to email WGB - thank you. Please let us know when/if you get a response. UI/UX is so important and I believe you mentioned in a post that web design is your specialism - I hope they duly take note.

On the plus side the RSI is falling fast so once profit takers stopped we might start on the next leg up. I emailed the company about ordering samples. I found the colefax website great for this - BIG BUTTON RIGHT AT THE TOP OF THE PAGE... What you want as the manufacturer/designers is LOADS of contact with the end customers. You get this via knowing what samples the customers want. Leaving it to retailer is hopeless as they have loads of wallpaper/fabric/paint companies. We need to follow colefax lead and have that SAMPLE button right at the top of the page! You will note the company is taking significant MONEY out of these samples - so its a bit of a business in its own right. Hope the new Sandersons Design Group will have that BUTTON See button RIGHT UNDER THE F of FOWLER: Https://www.colefax.com/ Now go to Walkergreenbank - how on earth do you order your sample!!!!!!! Https://www.walkergreenbank.com/ If you read their last trading update they made a BIG BIG POINT about SAMPLES so I do hope they get it right when the new website comes out!!!!

Some profit taking I guess. share price has doubled since April. I'm confident that it is on an upward curve but perhaps not every day!

Yes StudentInvestor13 and the reason they say for this improvement is an event that fits the description: "a rising tide floats all boats".... From their statement: "We are now half way through our important autumn selling season and believe we are benefitting from home related spending attributable to the worldwide lockdowns which took place earlier in the year." They are a quality wallpaper and fabrics seller. Middle Class office workers, working from home, are doing up their houses. What is excellent about colefax is right at the VERY TOP of their web site is a button saying "ORDER SAMPLES"..... WGB does not appear to have that button! THE GOOD NEWS In wgb's recent trading update wgb said a GREAT DEAL about samples: Innovation, in part as a result of Covid-19, led us to launch our first digital pattern book in July 2020 for Harlequin's new children's collection, the Book of Little Treasures. Sales of the collection in the first weeks following launch have been much higher than we would usually expect and we have been sending out far more samples from the collection than with a traditional pattern book launch. The cost of sending out these samples is much lower than the costs associated with traditional pattern books and there is also valuable feedback from the sampling process in that we can see which of the designs and colourways are the most popular; if we create a pattern book at a later date, we will benefit from knowing which designs to focus on. The experience of digitally launching the Book of Little Treasures and Queen Square has convinced us that all collection launches in future will have a four week digital pre-launch so we can benefit from initial feedback.

Interesting academic article on rebranding companies. The writers looked at 58 corporations that changed their name, The studies surprise findings were that the name change does indeed have a significant positive effect on the company if: a) The company is a manufacturing company... CHECK b) The name change is linked to cost savings.... CHECK c) performance prior to the change was relatively poor.... CHECK Https://www.jstor.org/stable/183841?seq=1 However on top of the link to cost savings there can also be a significant advantage with a corporate name change if it alters the perception of the company's products with the general public. There is a tendency to think of Wallpaper as "old fashioned" but linking 'wallpaper' with "DESIGN" or "STUDIO" gives the product a much more "hip and happening" air ... The name change is an advertising campaign in its own right. Who has ever heard of "Walker Greenbank" - NO ONE... Who has heard of "Sandersons" - TENS OF THOUSANDS ...

It is significant because it is the surface layer for the business reorganisation underneath. No reason this shouldn't be at 90 pence today. Its a buy

I'm thinking the "name change" is actually a big deal. Its like the start of a journey, a start of the vision. They have been thinking about this for a while because the new name was registered back in May and I guess internally developed as an idea from the beginning of the lockdown.

The share price should be over 70p today then heading towards 100p by year end.

A step in the right direction today. We have an excellent new ceo with clarity of mind about what Sanderson Design Group can become. If we can get back to 2019 sales in the next two years with 3 mill cost savings that is 12.7 P of net income a share Slap on a 13X multiple and bobs your uncle that is 165p. Still a corking bargain

It does appear that there might be a big buyer in the wings because there was quite a lot of selling early on in the morning and these trades all appear to have been mopped up... Be interesting to see if any "holdings" news appears. Also I wonder if the press will report on the change of name. That is quite a big deal.

Dreadfully cheap. Nobody would bat an eyelid if we were trading on 10x last years eps that is 95p. Now we have a proper self help plan in place that would have worked wonders without this bloody disease. Do not look a gift horse in the mouth for too long

The way things are going it could easily finish blue by close of play... It shows you more rush less spend. Sometimes you have to read the small print. The summary just is not good enough.

Barnesian: I did too (small amount - I mentioned on this thread). I tried to buy the same small amount via at least two online brokers and now (about 10 mins ago) neither would give me a price.. Try it yourself (to the point they quote a price - see if you get a quote)...
