good advice, get in late on a pump and dump scheme.
Those businesses are still dying so the only guarantee is in the long run you'll lose your money.
Why not stick it all in Hertz too.
lol 12000 jobs are being lost. I don't think we can turn that into a positive for the economy.
Plus indeed the majority will likely be younger generation.
Sad for them as without the pandemic they would no doubt still have jobs, and it's not a good time to be out of the jobs market but this will not be the last big redundancies.
Still good deal for Boo which I am afraid is the main thing though I do appreciate the bad situation a lot of people will be put in.
Oh man don't hit me with those negative waves so early in the morning.
It's a mother beautiful deal, the marketplace move looks a great complement selling other brands will pull more customers to the site.
The talk that we should just stick into young women market makes little sense to me, this is a growth stock which has extended its customer boundaries with this deal.
Those saying ASOS has done better getting Topshop before even knowing the price they will pay are oddballs
I'm a holder at current price, I have cut my position about 2/3s in boo over last couple months as there is so much that still looks cheap. If this goes down near 300 I'll be a buyer
No planned selling price I only ever move out of growth share if fundamentals warrant it or I see better use of the money elsewhere.
My average is around 270 so have benefit of playing with profits which make it easier trim
From Burberry's report
"There was also notable “triple-digit” growth in digital sales in China, even though most stores in the country have long since reopened."
Can't say what stock does on Deb's news, I would think it would go up 10-15% but I also think there will be more rotation from online and stay at home stock to travel and leisure so wouldn't be surprised if we did go down to around 300 in the short term but long term this does seem to be taking the right steps to continue growth so if your timeframe is a year or more you'll be up (probably!)
of course the future business environment is better for Lamprell then current whilst it is worse for Boo.
All we are is an online retailer, I think people are getting confused thinking everything online is tech.
The last year has been perfect for us and whilst the move to online will continue there will obviously be a big drop for the next few year of %age or retail sales online compared to offline.
This isn't an Ocado or even a Hut Group with technology it can sell to other firms and whilst in the long term this should continue to grow, if you were not already an owner of Boo and you had the option in current climate and at current SPs to buy into Boo or ASOS, or one of M&S, Next, or Burberry which would make more sense?
I'm still here as I bought at a price I am happy with, and if the price goes low I will top up, but if I was looking to buy retail stock at current prices and knowing the world will be opening up in the next few months, I certainly wouldn't put it here or in ASOS.
The US people didn't say anything about the jump in jobless claims yesterday, or potential slow down in China from the outbreaks there which would slow the only fully open main economy?
Also not sure if the Biden stimulus will pass, I understand it needs 10 republicans to vote with it and it adds pushing up minimum wage which they are all against so expect there is less confidence in it.
In UK we have just been told we're going into a double dip recession, that the economy will be weaker than any other main power and that logistics firms are not delivering to UK because they can't be bothered with all the paperwork and cost increase, and companies that sell to EU are getting their stuff returned by customers who can get it cheaper in EU now that there is an import tax added.
There will be bull markets somewhere and in some sectors but I don't see it in online retail for example and that's most likely why we and others are dropping. I expect Boo shares will continue to drop over the next couple months (not in straight line) but will eventually rise again once it overshoots.
Next are a good play as are in both online and offline sales.
Easier to find reasons after an event but I would guess that because of vaccine and liklihood we will be opening up in 2 or 3 months investors outside this board feel next year can't be as good as this for pure online plays.
Also that offline business share prices are low and traders feel they must go up as this year can't be as bad for them as last year.
I don't really think this is a Boohoo drop buy an online drop. No idea how far or for how long and yes I know Boo was doing well already in a 'normal' world and the move to online retail is going to continue but not this year compared to last and that's what investors are looking at IMO
I see your confusion.
"to shareholders on the register at the close of business on 15 January 2021"
That is correct as tomorrow is when the share holders are being recorded by the company and that can give the impression that they are counting who holds it that day, but they are recording who held shares at 7.59am this morning (ie. Before trading started today).
If you think about it, if they don't count people who buy shares today in the div but took out people who sold the shares you would have dividend money left over and they can't just put it back into the company or give other share holders (or themselves) more because that won't balance the books.
Not that this really matters as probably none of you sold but just to let you know .
pubs and travel are going up because of the vaccine.
Think about it cruises are going to be back soon as old people are the first who are getting vaccinated so Easter they will all feel able to go back cruising. Also when the over 50s are vaccinated the UK (and other countries as they get vaccinated) will open up again. The retail/travel/etc shares are still 50%-70% down and with the furlough scheme and a year of less holiday and spending, investors think there is lots of money to be spend on pubs, shopping and travel which is why those prices are now seen as cheap and worth buying.
If you think the pandemic is near the end it makes sense to start moving out of shares that have done well in last year to those that are still underpriced (in your opinion) for a vaccinated, open world.
FYI I have sold here but will if I think there is a better place for my money as don't fall in love with my stocks.
I think you are all looking too short term.
Over 12 months Boohoo up 10%, CCL down 66% Easyjet down 50%.
Would you prefer to be in carnival and be 3% ahead on the one day?
If you are just short term trading then yes you made a mistake either cut it or wait for the share price to improve.
Cyclical stocks might do better for you in that case like travel, miners, banks.
If you are longer term then you're being very short-sighted.
this might be getting confusing so to make it simple, as an investor you can ignore the record date, this is just for administration.
All you need to care about is the ex-dividend date and the payment date.
The ex-div date (today) is the date you have to buy shares before in order to be eligible for the dividend.
The reason the record date is not the same date as the ex-div (in case you wonder) is just because it can take up to 24 hours for the details of who owns a share to be updated and so companies give themselves that headroom (actually by stock exchange rules it can't be the same day precisely to avoid mistakes).
If you decided you want to sell shares on the ex-div date then you WILL still receive the dividend because what the company will be recording is who held the shares before the market opened today (this is why today is called EX-dividend day).
If you buy today you won't get the dividend because you weren't a holder of those share before this morning's trading so to go back to the start of this post the record date is completely irrelevant to us.
it goes ex-dividend tomorrow so you need to own shares by the end of trading today to get any dividend on them (hence tomorrow being ex-dividend).
It looks like we will get the money on 28th January for this dividend but that is not a set period.
not sure if this link will stick but if you go to Ferrexpro website and then 'shareholder services' and 'dividend information' you will get more detail.
You have to hold the stock before the ex-dividend day to be eligible for payment.
So you can buy it anytime up to close today (about 30 mins ago).
If you currently have shares at this moment those are the shares you will get div on, anything you sold today or anything you put a buy in for tomorrow will not count.
You can sell your shares first thing tomorrow if you choose to but the share price will drop by the amount of the dividend (because that is money that is no longer counted as company money even though it won't be sent out for a couple weeks and therefore the market cap will drop).
Depending on trading the the actual share price may not drop as much, or may drop more than the dividend amount but that is separate.
Hope that adds a little clarity but just google 'ex-dividend date' and you should get a better explanation.
People are worried that the stock will drop on good news because they worry that stellar growth can't be continued.
ASOS today is doing ok as mentioned but a slightly longer eg is JD Sports that jumped higher on Monday from good sales but is now almost back where it was.
THG was up on good results yesterday but back down lower today.
It is also a lot easier to take profit off the table then crystalise losses (mentally) which is why after a run up you see stock drop on good reports, whilst prices can jump on 'less bad' results or losses because the sellers are usually already out of those stocks and most people holding have decided to ride the dip out which pushes price up for new buyers.
Hut group up on good results.
Funny old game.
Moose no one can say what the share price will do on one day. There were many in November at 390 b4 results saying don't take any profit this will fly tomorrow on results.
Longer term this will be higher but I can't tell you if at the end of the week it will be closer to 300 or 400 and anyone who thinks they can are kidding themselves.
Probably this will go up but not definitely
