Kingfisher - KGF - Stock Discussion

Owners of household name DIY stores such as B&Q and Screwfix, this leading home improvement retailer has over a thousand stores.

Does this news push Kingfisher further up your watchlist?

I thought the DIY phase possibly ended when the lockdowns were over. There’s an attractive yield and P/E …

Screwfix are more like a drop-in wearhouse than a store which you can browse. Most people would look on online then go there to collect the item.

Home to the B&Q & Screwfix brands, over 1300 stores across nine countries.

Current dividend yield - 5.73%

Recently booted out of the FTSE 100. :boot:

B&Q and Screwfix parent company Kingfisher has been relegated from the FTSE 100 following a quarterly reshuffle of the sought-after stock market ranking.

Anyone buying on for that yield? Or is the 50% decline in value since 2015 make it too hot to handle? :hot_pepper:

I’ not sure, you always need these places. Your halfway through a project with limited time and its all stop if you can’t get certain basic items quickly. But considering the size of my local branch it usually feels a bit post apocalyptic wandering around in there nearly alone. More staff than customers
