    I too question what will happen now that many people have done their diy jobs during lockdown and there is some sort of import/vat tax on things coming into the UK. France seems to be on a major lockdown too.

    Martin would you say share buy backs destruction of cash with this thing, I could only see them as such in comparison to a dividend unless the shares trade below net asset value. Thanks

    Ok, I've bought Kingfisher as a long term investment. I realise that there may be more bad new this year, but feel that it is already priced in. I like that the book value, excluding intangible assets, is close to the market capital and it also says on page 39 of the annual report that the fair value of their property is £700 million more than book value. Average pe ratio of past 5 years earnings is good, and it clear to see that profit being consistently returned to investors through dividends and share buybacks. Cash is a little low, but current ratio is good. Current assets to total debt is good. Dividends have been paid every year since 1993, with little variance. In my opinion Kingfisher is going to greatly benefit from Homebase's problems and I think Travis Perkins (Wickes) looks sketchy by most value metrics, which should greatly benefit B&Q in the medium term. The Kingfisher B&Q and Screwfix website are reasonably good and useful ecommerse websites. Closing fringe store in Russia is similar to failed attempt 5 years ago to open stores in China, which didn't materially affect it over the medium term. Increasing inventory is a slight concern and something to keep an eye on.

    The company is ripe for acquisition. Sum-of-the-part analysis shows that the firm is worth at least 2x current price. Private Equity investor rumored to buy this firm at current cheap valuation with at least 30% premium. Currently trading at 5x EBITDA multiple, no debt and property value that is almost equal to market cap

    You can keep downvoting until your hands bleed but I'm getting richer and richer shorting this ponzi scheme; just keep buying in above £2.00 and I'll keep ragging you for all you're worth.

    Transformation, regression or standing still? Screwfix, screw lost, screw missed or screw waiting? Moving towards IT enabled efficiency or labour enabled inefficiency. Customer do-it-yourself or customer help-yourself. So much stuff. So many bits. Must be hard keeping track of transformation progress other than seeing your competitors fail one by one and your staff walk many miles per day. With no Focus Do it All, and Bunnings making huge losses, one expects a near perfect monopoly position in this market. Did B&Q stock small circlip to fix my garden sprayer's pressure release valve - no. But a plastic pen-top cut to size for a retaining-ferrell did it perfectly.

    As expected, it is now the belief amongst analysts that KGF recovery plan will fail and profits will continue to fall. When will KGF stop overpaying and underdelivering. Get out now before this bombs again.

    Yet again, people continue to buy this junk stock at above £3 and lose out a few days later when it continues its decline below £2.90. Words absolutely fail me watching this same cycle over and over for the past few years. KGF is going to well below £2.

    Hahahaa; still the same old idiots buying overpriced KGF.

    Really? a 3% beat of expectations for 6 months after years of dismal performance and people are prepared to pay well over the odds for this junk. Give it another six months and an interest rate rise and this will be below £2.50.

    After a comprehensive review of the new Bunnings store in St Albans, we have concluded that, for the first time, B&Q have a dominating competitor in the home improvement market in the UK. The offering from Bunnings simply blows B&Q out of the water in all aspects. Going forward, Bunnings will significantly reduce B&Q's revenue to all time lows and will diminish B&Q's presence in the UK. A summary from 12 leading analysts suggest a 3-5 year slow decline in stock price to a low of £1.30 per share. Looks like a good time to dump KGF.

    This stock continues its predictable slide to below £3.00 due to inability of KGF to deliver on commitments made during restructure. B&Q store refurbishment program is draining funds and delivering a poor product which is driving consumers to Bunnings. Brexit will destroy B&Q profits in Europe. B&Q management are over paid and under deliver. This company needs a severe overhaul if ANY increase in profits are to be realised. Stop wasting money on outdated store refurbishment - it is driving your customers away.

    So B&Q profit rise expectations based on CEO restructure program were expected to deliver 1% profit increase but instead resulted in 0.6% drop in profits. This is a great example of how B&Q cannot keep its customers. The restructure plan did not include or plan for Brexit nor Bunnings and still B&Q cannot deliver on expectations. STRONG SELL.
