sickest dogs in my portfolio I have three dogs that look like they are on their way out; Dixons Carphone is by far the sickest. Do you think it is time I let him go? (the other two are Card Factory and Dunelm)

follow the money Hi,sold out near £2 and have sat and watched for a while, looking to buy back in but will see if the 150 - 160 levels are seen again. Div is not due until August and summer is usually a quite trading period for electricals as people go out more, that said the world cup is this year so who knows.Definitely want a buy price below 170 though Fusion98

Share Price Barclays report sounds more promising. It's about time we had some good news, so hopefully next week:"Dixons Carphone (DC.) shares have been nervy ahead of its Christmas trading update, falling nearly 8%. But in its previous results presentation, management talked of a good start to peak trading with a record Black Friday."This is encouraging but since then, several companies have reported weak end of December trading," write analysts at Barclays. "We highlight a report from Kantar Worldpanel from January 10th which revealed strong iPhone X sales in the UK during the last quarter."It's why the broker predicts UK & Ireland like-for-like sales growth of 3%, Nordics 5%, Greece 5% and group sales up 4%.Buy up to 231p, says Barclays."

pre ex-div/post ex-div I did have an idea yesterday to sell ahead of ex-div and buy back today.The theory being that prices tend to overshoot, so too high pre ex-div and too low post ex-div.However, I didn't bother in the end. Shares are a gamble and I would have been gambling on the volatility of a gamble.If I'd gone through with the deal, this morning, I would have just about been at break even (with dividend loss/dealing costs). That's not to say, in different circumstances, I could have been in profit.A kind of time delayed arbitrage, anybody had any success with this (not just DC.)?

Numis From Citywire:"Investors are being compensated for Dixons risksNumis believes the risk-reward outlook for Dixons Carphone (DC) is improving after the electricals retailer posted first-half results in line with forecasts.‘Interim profit before tax fell sharply, as expected, and the company’s central full-year guidance was trimmed by 5%,’ said analyst Matthew Taylor.‘We expect further profit attrition in mobile but believe this will have a diminishing effect from 2019. Risks remain due to the high-ticket, discretionary product pitch and operational gearing, and the group needs to improve cash flow. ‘However, in our view the valuation at seven times price-earnings [on 2018 estimates] more than discounts this, at least for more adventurous funds.’Taylor rates the shares an ‘add’ with a 210p target price. The shares jumped 8.5% to 181.6p "

Going Up Currently the share price is around 179.2p and getting quite volatile. So up about 11p so far today. With my limited knowledge I thought that the results and outlook looked quite promising - and that the previous fall in the share price had been overdone on the basis of these results. I am beginning to suspect that the shorters might be having to close some positions and are pushing the price higher at the moment. Over £2 in the medium to short term?The bU

Directors They don't seem too confident at 167p --- the last buys are in Sep/Oct and for a few £10's of thousands.Need to see their money I guess -- if this is such a bargain, they would be buying in 100K chunks.Games
