It was three months ago or so when I last mused on these pages about Dixons Carphone (DC.) shares. Back then I concluded that 'they are probably still cheap (single digit earnings, 5%+ dividend yield) but I would understand if you think you will get more of a bargain in one of its stores on Boxing Day...'. Well I did not buy the shares (although I did get a great value coffee machine from one of its stores which - for what it is worth - has completely revolutionised my cup of Guatemala's finest). Anyhow today's announcement - as one of my Twitter correspondents noted - would be headline grabbing stuff at any other time…
Hello, Share snatchers. Some might not envy the prospects of a company that sells mobile phones and electrical gizmos these days. The perception seems to be that people are tiring of constantly changing their gadgets whenever a newer model comes along...
You could have made a bit of money off my January reiteration that Dixons Carphone (DC.) was too cheap. The shares have pulled back from a slightly frothy 240p and are now trading just below the 200p level which is really building into a big resistance/support level. Today's numbers complicate matters a little more, with a second attempt by the new CEO to ensure he is starting the job at a suitably depressed profits outlook level by pulling down hopes for the next twelve months to just £300 million pre-tax profit versus not far shy of £400 million in the year just completed and over £500 million for the year before that.
It has been a bit volatile at times but if you bought the late August plunge in the shares of the UK's leading mobile and electricals retailer Dixons Carphone (DC.) as discussed HERE then you have made a few quid. So what to do now? Well step forward the company's trading update for the 10 weeks to the 6th January 2018…
Hello, Share Scratchers. There is often a bit of money to be made out of buying a share which has recently had a nasty accident. The selling, sometimes moved by mindless computer programmes, can be nervously overdone. This might be the case with Dixons Carphone (DC.) whose shares fell by a third at one stage after the well-known outfit issued a recent profit warning.
I have not written about Dixons Carphone (DC.) before but, whilst Darren counts the profits from his short sell tip on the share of early January, I have to say today's share price dump has rather piqued my interest.
Hello Share Bashers. Selling computers and phones and big screen television sets has not been easy. In recent years, quite a few stores have disappeared from our high streets and out of town shopping centres.
Hello Share Shoppers. I’ve been reading a few recommendations from sharper financial minds than mine about a great new British company which does a lot more than it suggests.
We have had a recent trading statement from Dixons Carphone (DC.), the recently merged Dixon’s Retail and Car phone Warehouse companies, which I had reviewed positively in late May 2014. The pre- merged Dixon’s Retail share price was then 44p in its old form. The adjusted share price chart indicates that the new form share price was then around 300p. In the next seven months, the share price rose reaching a peak of 470p last month – a useful increase of an estimated 56%. Since then, the share has retreated 8% to 345p. So where does it go from here?
