|good point Penycae, don't have time to debate with a serial deramper monty but just read some previous posts, plus yield is way above savings rates and well covered so can hardly be described as low or the p.e. as high|
|I know that question wasn't directed at me, but a £3.00 gap fill looks a good start.|
|BountyWhat's the bull case then?|
|yawn, play another record monty|
|Airbnb must hit Premier, coffee market saturated, high p.e 17, low yield, so going ex growth, sorry boys can't see what the attraction is.|
|A pe of 15 for a company with cracking brands and international expansion potential is hardly excessive. The dividend is covered 3 times and quite frankly would prefer they kept the money back to invest in the business, especially with the ROCE record.|
|Best short on the FTSE 100, high p.e low dividend, coffee market getting saturated.|
|If 3910 goes we may well be heading lower.Currently, struggling to pop above 4000.Good Luck to those looking for a bounceP|
|Lol, I think the inclusion of 'hedge' in his username gives his game plan away!
My target is 4695p :)|
|Monty thinks he can influence the price of a ftse £7bn company!!!|
|My target 3685p.|
|Cheap? High p.e, low dividend compared to the rest of the FTSE 100, slowing growth, coffee market saturated. What's to like?|
|Buy cheap Whitbread, says Credit Suisse
Costa and Premier Inn owner Whitbread (WTB) is trading at a cheap price compared to its historic average despite the investment case being on track, says Credit Suisse.
Analyst Tim Ramskill retained his ‘outperform’ recommendation and target price of £45.50 on the stock following full-year 2017 results.
It reported profit before tax of £565 million against Ramskill’s estimate of £570 million, and guidance for 2018 and the £150 million self-help plan are ‘on track’.
But the shares fell 6.6% to £40.25 yesterday as investors took fright at falling sales at Costa and chief executive Alison Brittain’s warning of a ‘tougher consumer environment than last year’.
‘We maintain a positive view on Whitbread given solid results, trading momentum and a reasonable valuation,’ said Ramskill.
‘We note Whitbread is cheap versus history, trading at a c.5% premium to the FTSE 250 versus a 20% premium over the last 10 years. Whitbread trades on a February 2018 estimate price earnings of 16.1x offering an adjusted free cashflow yield of 4.7%.’
|Everyone knows hes a muppet|

|Saturated coffee market, can only slow down.|
|low dividend? beats ISA rates!
"The firm proposed a full year total dividend of 95.80p, up 6% on the 90.65p paid a year earlier."
results were "broadly in-line with market expectations, although it remains cautious on the year ahead."
Whitbread posts solid growth in profits, revenue, but stays cautious on year ahead
For the 52 weeks to 2 March 2017, the FTSE 100-listed firm saw its underlying pre-tax profit increase by 6.2% to £565.2mln
Strong growth from its core coffee and hotel brands helped Whitbread plc (LON:WTB) post a solid rise in full-year profit and revenue, broadly in-line with market expectations, although it remains cautious on the year ahead.
For the 52 weeks to 2 March 2017, the FTSE 100-listed firm saw its underlying pre-tax profit increase by 6.2% to £565.2mln, on total revenue of £3.106bn, up 8.2% on a year earlier.
Analysts at Credit Suisse had forecast Whitbread reporting adjusted pre-tax profit of £567mln, compared to £546mln the previous year, with revenue up to £3.1bn from £2.9bn...
|High p.e, low dividend, slowing growth = lower share price.|
|lol Spacecake, she needs to bin those asap! one could counter argue that more Brits will be spending their money in the UK and more foreign tourists will be staying at Premier Inns and drinking Costa coffee due to the weakness of the pound :-)|
|"a tougher consumer environment than last year".
These few words caused all the selling today, and .... Speaking to reporters, Ms Brittain said: "Indications suggest that there is going to be some constraint on (the) pound in the average consumer pocket with inflation and higher petrol prices and a relatively static wage position."
Would seem Ms Brittain has some of those 'future goggles' - you know, like the ones you wear for EU exit referendums and Labour party leadership elections and writing outlook statements.|
|agreed however free coffee at Waitrose has just become history unless you but something as well, at least at my local Waitrose, may benefit Costa to some extent going forwards|
|To much competition in the coffee market becoming saturated. Free coffee at Waitrose as not helped.|
