greggs - recent fall overdone? (GRG)     

bishopjeremy - 16 Dec 2003 22:35

Just wondering if the recent fall in Greggs has been overdone. Being based in the north-east,they still maintain market superiority. Some of the staff I have spoken to seem to be getting all the overime they can handle and one of the major local rivals, Peters (70 stores in the area), has been closed for the last few days due to a fire at their distribution centre.

Any thoughts welcome

Greggs seems to be doing well in West of Scotland judging by the ques outside at lunchtime and the number paper pokes you see scattered in the streets bearing their name.

Seem very busy in Leeds too. Will happily visit in the name of research (bite, chomp)

Anyone trading this one these days?

They seem to move up and down often for no apparent reason.

Not in on these but about a year ago they appear to have changed the set up of a lot of the shops so all the sandwiches are not only pre-made but pre-packed and set up for the customer to help themselves. Also the shops are now completely tiny (assuming lower rates). As for the west of scotland (mentioned in earlier post) my comments above are mainly based on that tiny shop at the top of Buchanan St in Glasgow. never seen it quiet yet. Most the queuing is done in the street. Good business model if you ask me.

Thanks for your reply CM,

A fairly reliable outfit In general it would seem, but good job I didn't buy yesterday as they are still falling today (50p when I last looked).

I shall watch It with Interest.

Greggs popped up on my share screener, based on the strong historical revenue/ profit/divident trends, net cash and the low p/e. A solid performer and possibly a take-over target for someone looking for a strong retail platform to 'up-date' the Greggs food offering?

Just looked at their chart, Bl***y hell these have bounced back well.

Its not one i follow closely Stan but was looking to short it earlier in the year but missed the boat but it still sits in one of watchlists. not sure how much further it can go at least not without a short term pull back
