Seems to be the major supermarkets that are suffering at the moment; they said themselves though that they have lost market share to Lidl and Aldi. I Don't see any recent market changes that would compete for Dixons' customers and as far as I know their online offering is decent. I hear the Sale wasn't a brilliant package but footfall was good and the sale offering could surely have been tweaked if necessary.
Dixons shares will continue to struggle until they announce their own results next Thursday. I can see why some who bought these when they were much lower might get nervous and jump out now in case the news is bad - I'v e a strong feeling it won't be and I am hopeful of news that ail send these in the right direction next week. Hopefully not wishful thinking as I have tripled my holding in Dixons since the beginning of January in anticipation!
I have a feeling that the negative press for Marks & Sparks and Tesco will backfire today. I can see a decent ftse today. Only guessing though because 75% of the time that markets make assumptions they tend to be priced in. I think it will take drastic results today from Marks & Sparks to send them into the deep red.
Dixons finish today 50p and tomorrow 50p. ;-D
A few Dojis then a huge jump next week...Text book TA :-P
Well done......all correct answers - re Chrononhotonthologos - having consulted with the panel their decision is that although this word does exist it was the name given to a satirical play by the English poet Henry Carey from 1734 . Therefore, it does not really count as a real word in the true sense, but a very clever offering to the quiz - Thank-you for your attention .
Hi All - yes, it is indeed the 16th , Thursday of next week - I am still poised to pounce - was taken by surprise following the sharp rise after the NEXT announcement - I have then hung on for what I believe will be a gradual drift for the next day or so - now fancy a re-entry of around the 47.50p/48.50p mark - then all fingers crossed for the 16th - an interesting consideration is whether the trading update meeting expectations, but no more, will now boost the SP or slightly depress it - any thoughts please - spellmaster - I can just about live with you now that you seem a bit more human - how about Dice/Die - Rory -
Yes was worrying to me too. I have researched M&S today because of that worry though I think the bad results are priced in. They have fell 11% in December and there has been several stories released indicating that the results won't be great and there way still plenty of buys flying through Monday Tuesday and today. I have a feeling the market reaction to poor results will not be that significant.
Hopefully Dixon's holds the 50p mark by Monday...if so I'll be a happy man.
