It's Raining Cats and Dogs as Pets At Home Takes Full Advantage with some Perky Ploys

2021-06-02 08:11:23

Hello, Share Thrashers. As predicted here, Pets At Home (PETS) announced a bouncy yearly revenue. It's up by nearly 9%, now standing at £1.1 billion. Not bad for a fairly new retail business. Though we should say that extra covid costs have upset the profit applecart a bit. Underlying gains before tax was a useful £87.5 million, but was still 6.4% worse than the prior year. However, as you might expect, the company is doing better week by week. And that £87.5 million is expected to grow to at least £120 million for the current full year.


Why You Won't Be Barking Mad to Consider Buying Shares in this Perky Pet Provider

Hello, Share Gobblers. The army of dogs on my local beach is truly remarkable. They far outnumber the people. You’ve probably read that in the loneliness of lockdown, pet sales are booming. There’s also sadly a growing trade in dog kidnapping. Meanwhile, a company that’s prospering because of four-legged demand is Pets at Home (PETS)...


The Boom in Four-Legged Friends Puts this Perky Pet Provider on a Promising Path

2020-12-23 08:14:47

Hello, Share Chasers. Such is the love we British have for our cats and dogs that the government has deemed pet shops to be essential during lockdowns. And as these isolating nuisances are set to become even more common and longer-lasting in the coming months, shops which cater for animals can only prosper while other retailers suffer. Which brings me to my favourite – in fact, my only retail recommendation. It’s Pets at Home (PETS). This family is among its appreciative customers. Its prices to feed and nurture our two cats are reasonable, the stores welcoming and the staff well-trained and exceptionally friendly...

2020-09-25 08:20:29

Hello, Share Friends. You may know that Pets at Home (PETS) is one of my favourite retail plays. In fact, given the curse of the high street, it’s probably my only one. The over-riding reason is that we’re potty about our pets and this overblown fascination is only getting stronger. My town is overrun with dogs as an evermore isolated population turn to four-legged friends for company...

Hello, Share Carriers. Despite having one of the most tautological names on the stock market, Pets at Home (PETS) seems to be on the right track for a higher share price (tautology, of course, is saying the same thing twice and where else would you have your pets, but at home?)...

2018-08-07 07:11:29

Hello Share Crushers. This family has just taken another inmate from the local cat rescue depot. It was meant to be a companion for our recently bereaved Caddy.

Animal Instinct Tells Me this Big Player in a Growing Market May Soon Make Tracks

2018-05-24 00:07:06

Hello, Share Scramblers. It seems to me that more people are adopting cats and dogs. There’s also more interest in more exotic pets. At my vet this week, I spotted a hen and something in a sinister box which the owner seemed afraid of. People are also taking more care of their pets, as many become a substitute for offspring who’ve fled the nest.
