That would be a nice range for now I agree. Got a few more in the dip, for the divi alone they were a no brainer. It's an industry where those that don't expand get swallowed by bigger outfits, so it'll be interesting to see what strategy prevails in the next couple of years.
Are you imagining that there will be a rush of folks queuing to get in on Monday, when they have been merrily buying online throughout? Ask any carrier's driver, they've been tail lifting pallets down on to kerbsides at a record rate. You should realise that Covid has accelerated the demise of traditional shopping by many years. This mob will have to go the same way eventually, but will have to deal with the pain of store closures first. IMHO
Can't say I've heard of anyone not making it through, given the generous level of support, and the fact that trade sales have remained strong throughout. You're welcome to your view. but I don't think the market is with you, and IMHO they should be wary of any retailer with more than 300 heaps of bricks and mortar to fund. The web sellers have massively lower cost bases.
Interesting claim by JoeKenny "has had a lot of its competition wiped out". Who has been "wiped out" ? I'd have thought that the online outfits would have done rather well, and haven't seen any signs that other retailers have failed?
Gix. Yes, something I've noticed for a while now. Hope we're not going down the route of big tech in US, using algorithms to limit free speech. Don't like what I'm seeing there. Don't forget that Ch1na isn't exactly a free market economy, and we shouldn't expect things to progress in the same way as other places IMHO
Market makers will always take care of themselves first. At the moment they don't appear to want to buy, or sell. If there was a rule change regarding ISA treatment of foreign residents, it will have been notified to those affected a long time ago. Remoaning about it now is a bit pointless.
The concept of continual expansion was always there, and the control on profitability was the amount spent in establishing new territory and products, The turnover reached now would probably allow a fair bit of expansion without further losses. Depends on the size of ambition, or appetite for further acquisitions I guess. Cautious optimism for me.
Neverhopeful, And that was a contract for DSM to do the selling part, which expires next year. If there has been slow sales progress, DSM are responsible. An advert 10 years ago for what? A sugar loaded juice drink that most found unpalatable? You misrepresent Chinese progress, the majority of the middle class seek modern, western sourced, health solutions.
Not much of a free float, decent amount of buying, that's about it. The breakout will surely come if this sort of appetite continues IMHO. Too many comments about how undervalued this share is to leave it in this range for much longer.
To me, that's fantasy league stuff. However, it would all depend on how many multiples of current volumes By Health could bring to the party, and what scale up of our own retail could be achieved by investment of some of the increased funding. The next phase could be fascinating.
