Whats good about the new website is that all items are together (eg this is Lighting). Https://www.sandersondesigngroup.com/shop/lighting/amelia-lamps/?code=ZLIC392645
What I dont like (compared to penguin for example) is WGB dont take you to the exact page for that product on the retailers websites.
Penguin do: eg:


You click this link and with any of the retailers mentioned you go directly to the RIGHT PAGE FOR THAT PRODUCT!!!

Https://www.penguin.co.uk/books/321772/a-promised-land/9780241491515.html

So in effect WGB are doing a lot of hard work and then LOSING THE SALE because they show the customer the wrong page with another manufacturers products.

They need to IMPROVE this otherwise they will lose sales.

There is no good excuse for this - its just LAZY! and losing WGB MONEY!

I wouldnt read much into it Barnesian. There was an uncrossing trade in the closing auction yesterday (at 84p) which shows the close price at 84p, when in reality the share price was sub 80p prior to the auction. Those auction prices tend to unwind, so to speak, when the stock opens the day after.

Price moves up with only a few buys. More buys come in watch the share price move up very strongly indeed from this level.

HF14: Middle Class office workers are already working from home.
The lockdown worry is shops. WGB is more dependant on shops like John Lewis staying open (and factories) so lockdown BAD for WGB but work from home GOOD for WGB....

I dont think a lockdown2 will do WGB good.... However that being said, it might be (I'm no expert) that WGB dont sell much in the WINTER - perhaps most sales occur in the SPRING..

NOV is going to be a dodgy month - that is my gut feeling.
DEC could be really good - with re-organisation and potential vaccine.

Thanks - its just that segment of market is doing well so I'm guessing WGB doing well with this 5%-. So perhaps its up to 5% now .
Three of WGBs sites have a Sofa as the cover picture:

WGB corporate site itself and
Zoffany
Anthology

Then the fabrics themselves are sold to cover furniture so I guess
that also counts as part of the "furniture" business.

Do we sell any sofa fabrics to furniture manufacturers?

One would think WGB could get a sales rep knocking on doors and
saying "your sofas would look good covered in William Morris".....

PPG (WGBs paint partner) is having "BETTER THAN EXPECTED" results:
Https://investor.ppg.com/news/news-details/2020/PPG-Provides-July-Sales-Update-and-Increases-Third-Quarter-2020-Sales-Estimates/default.aspx (It specifically mentions that this increased demand is coming from Europe ).. The missing link here is WGB producing a "William Morris paint" - I can imagine this brand could take a huge slice of the middle class paint market but other WGB brands do have paints and their sales could be increasing (see PPG results). PPG became WGBs paint partner in 2017.
(PPGs share price is more or less back to its January price. WGB was in trading range 80-90 in January so still 50-60% off January price)

The WGB story.
(see chart)
https://uk.advfn.com/cmn/chrt/chrt_wrap.php?epic=LSE%3AWGB&name=&type=1&size=2&period=9&ind_type1=0&ind_type2=0&ind_type3=0

In 2017 the share was trading at 200p-250p range (its now 57p).

At end of 2017 it plummeted to 100p-140p range (still 100% higher than now).

The reason for the fall to 100-140 was falling demand in the UK (recession)
and flooding back in 2015 (from shares magazine see link below)
Https://www.sharesmagazine.co.uk/news/shares/walker-greenbank-warns-of-weakening-sales
If you look at shares magazine it was talking about recovery to about 270p by 2019.


So how did we end up with a share price of 57p and almost a NETNET stock?


No idea... However I do know there is currently a DIY boom and I expect
WGB to have made some money from this boom (unless others know otherwise).

This DIY boom will last for a long time as people will be working from home for yonks (some will never go back) and then we have a stamp duty holiday until end of March 2021.

Say I'm being overly optimistic and £1 is not achievable this year and StudentInvestors 90p is also unachievable I think we should at least get to 70-80p range this year.
I mean there is a DIY boom.

If you look at the arts and crafts online portal - ETSY - its share price has gone up from 20 cents low in March to $1.20 now (eg 600% rise) - eg 600% rise....

Https://www.macrotrends.net/stocks/charts/ETSY/etsy/stock-price-history

In UK DIY Kingfisher share price up 40% on the year, about 90% up since March.

Arts Crafts (including buying Musical goods online - eg G4M share price also up 600% since march) and DIY are the big winners..

WGB results in October?

Typical ETSY William Morris item:

FT posts that DIY boom is not just in UK and Europe, it is also in WGB main sale area: USA..

Https://www.ft.com/content/DIY-BOOM-in-USA

If you work from home you have HOURS and DAYS more free time to decorate your house.

WGB products are in most of the glossy magazines every month.

WGB share price has been rising

However its still trading at near NAV value. This makes it, on paper, quite inexpensive for a top
notch luxury brand.

Cheers Net.

What makes WGB special - (William Morris but also)

WGB NAV per share 42p - share price about 40p

CRPR (Cropper) NAV per share 218p share price about 1150p

WGB stands out as having NAV per share as a percentage MILES lower
