Halfords drifts sideways ahead of Q1 trading statement

Halfords was one of the great beneficiaries of the pandemic, seeing its share price surge 700% to its July 2021 peak above 400p. Since then, the company has seen a modest decline, leaving the overall uptrend intact.

As the UK economy returns to normality, investors will be hoping that the potential drop-off in cycling activity is offset by a revived performance in the motoring division. Traffic levels are returning to pre-pandemic levels, albeit slowly, which gives hope that sales will continue to rebound to a degree. At around 12 times forward earnings the shares remain around their five-year average, a drop from the 15 times seen over the summer this year.

Halfords shares fell sharply in July, breaking below rising trendline support from March 2020. However, they found support around 337p, a level which has held since then.

Gains have been capped around 380p for the time being, leaving the shares in a relatively tight range that has yet to provide an indication of the next move. Above 380p, 435p comes into view, the high from the summer, while a break lower heads towards 298p and then 251p.

    • Basically, they're letting creators mint NFTs and other digital stuff across multiple blockchains at once. Holograph isn't the only one trying to build bridges between blockchains. Projects like Omnibridge and Wormhole are also in the game, each with their own way of moving your digital assets around.  While Holograph focuses on this "native minting" thing across chains, other projects might be a better fit depending on what you need. Doing your research is key! Definitely something to consider. While Holograph recently scored a cool $11 million in funding, omnichain functionality is still pretty new. They've also got some interesting features, just landed on Bitget, and seems to be building an empire state. There could be bumps in the road, so be sure to do your own research and understand the potential risks. So, what do you think? Is Holograph the future of NFTs, or is it just a bunch of hype? Have you tried any other cross-chain solutions? Let's hear your thoughts in the comments!
    • May 22nd marks Bitcoin Pizza Day, a celebration of the first real-world transaction using Bitcoin. In 2010, Laszlo Hanyecz made history by offering 10,000 Bitcoins for two Papa John's pizzas, showcasing Bitcoin's practical potential. The cryptocurrency community commemorates this milestone with various events, including meetups, webinars, and giveaways. Bitget's Pizza Day Raffle is one such event, offering prizes in cryptocurrencies and tokens. Whether you're interested in Bitcoin's history, community, or uses, this event is worth exploring.
    • HashPack rocks. Their wallet's is easy to use, and they're everywhere in Hedera (dApps, DeFi, NFTs). The Bitget listing is gonna be insane for them.
