Superdry-ied up retail results - recession, recession, recession!


Recommended Posts

Another week another set of retail results with overpaid CEOs claiming unseasonable weather is to blame rather than themselves or the global slow down.  This time it is the turn of SuperDry and apparently warm weather hit sales of under layer hoodies and jackets...  People are talking about global warming as the end of all things but I didn't think it would be used as a scapegoat for CEO under-performance.  OK he didn't actual cite global warming but he might as well have...  And now the founder is throwing stones at the management, having recently left the Board, hmm...

Oh and it looks like consumers have stopped buying mobile phones as well...

If retail is a bell-weather for the economy then look out!  I haven't heard a good news story on retail for several years.  And has anyone else been getting massive pre Christmas promo action from Amazon..?  And did anyone notice that Cyber Monday morphed into Cyber week this year..?  I'm betting Christmas sales discounts are going to be massive this year and we all know what happens to retailers profits when they do that!  But it's ok because economists consensus is that a recession wont happen until 2020 so we can all rest easy then...

Perfect break and retest of the channel line there @elle followed by a massive break-away gap in early Oct and SuperDry returns to where it all started...  Mind you it isn't a bad brand or a bad company so in due course it could be an interesting buy, but only after the dust has settled...

Not clear on what I'm looking at there @Caseynotes.  Is it %growth rates?  Month on month?  Month vs prior year?  As an analyst it is important to look at the data in several ways to assess what it might be telling you.  But look at the graph below, trend really doesn't say much but then it is an index too.  One thing to note, there have been several recessions along this trend line but you would be hard but to identify it from this.  Governments don't generally like to issue bad data...  Lies, **** lies and statistics sort of thing.

    • Week ahead 12/12/22: Fed, BoE, ECB decisions With little or no corporate data we focus in on central bank decisions at the Federal Reserve (Fed), Bank of England (BoE) and European Central Bank (ECB). IGTV senior analyst, Joshua Mahony, discusses trades around the volatility index, the VIX, EUR/USD and the S&P 500.      
    • Charting the Markets: 9 December FTSE 100, DAX 40 and CAC 40 regain lost ground ahead of US PPI data. EUR/USD, GBP/USD, and AUD/USD look to continue their bullish two-month trend. And gold and natural gas edge higher but oil prices keep falling.         This is here for you to catch up but if you have any ideas on markets or events you want us to relay to the TV team we’re more than happy to.
    • EUR/USD, GBP/USD and AUD/USD look to continue their bullish two-month trend EUR/USD, GBP/USD and AUD/USD look set to continue their bullish momentum, with recent worries cast aside for now.    Joshua Mahony | Senior Market Analyst, London | Publication date: Friday 09 December 2022  EUR/USD continues to push higher after recent pullback EUR/USD has seen a more upbeat tone over the second half of the week, with the dollar strength seen on Monday and Tuesday fading to give way to another push higher for this pair. Markets appear to be in a state of flux, with inflationary concerns reemerging in the wake of last Friday’s jump in US average earnings. Today sees the release of the US producer price index (PPI) inflation figure, bringing potential volatility if we see factory prices head higher. China certainly has little to worry about on that front, with both consumer price index (CPI) (1.6%) and PPI (-1.3%) well below target thanks to cheap Russian fuel and lockdown restrictions. For EUR/USD, we would need to see a move back below the $1.029 swing-low to bring about a fresh bearish signal after two-months of upside for the pair. Until then, the bulls remain in the driving seat. Source: ProRealTime GBP/USD pushing back into key resistance GBP/USD also saw a somewhat downbeat start to the week, with the pair heading lower from the crucial $1.2293 swing-high resistance level. That August high provides a crucial hurdle up ahead for bulls, with a push through that point bringing expectations of another leg higher from here. The uptrend in place over the course of the past two-months has brought expectations of further upside unless we see that ongoing pattern of higher lows end. With that in mind, a bullish view holds unless the price falls back below the $1.19 level. Keep an eye out for the UK consumer inflation expectations figure released at 9.30am this morning. Source: ProRealTime AUD/USD struggling to maintain recovery pace AUD/USD has similarly been attempting to regain ground today, with the gains seen across EUR/USD and GBP/USD failing to carry through here. This could signal a potential waning of the bullish momentum, with the fact that these pair have been slowing in their ascent of late serving to highlight the potential for another bearish reversal in the near-future. That would tally up with what is happening in equity markets, which have shown initial tentative signs of a turnaround before long. With that in mind, watch out for a break back below the $0.664 level to signal a bearish turn for this pair. Until then, the uptrend evident over the past two-months does remain in play.
