    Yep beagle Kathmandu almost a non-event in NZ .....flat sales last 4 years and declining profits. This is in spite of a few more stores and this much touted increase in online sales.

    Kathmandu sell twice as much (plus a bit) in Aussie than they do in NZ. All the recent profit growth has come from Australia.

    An investment in Kathmandu is essentially an investment in Australia retail ....that’s where Kathmandu fortunes lie and the recent announcement announcement said that wasn’t going too well at the moment.

    Wonder if the collapsing house prices in Australia are starting to make a serious dent in consumer confidence yet or are they about too ?

    Stuff I’ve bought from Mountain Warehouse in the UK has been crap .....wouldn’t want to go up the mountains in their gear.

    Still a nuisance to KThmandu though

    Nice store in Gretna Green though

    The past 12 months, I've spent about $750 at Kathmandu. Doing whatever I can to help boost Kathmandu profits.

    I've sold some of my KMD today as I don't fully feel comfortable going into tomorrow's result. Unfortunately I was a victim of the recent Kathmandu website hack where credit card details were stolen from anyone who bought on their website between 8th Jan - 12th Feb 2019. I think this incident could potentially impact on Kathmandu's reputation and profits in the short term.
    As a loyal Kathmandu customer, I feel bloody let down and my trust in the company has been dented.

    You taught him a lesson with that advice beagle ...Xavier on the radio said he wouldn't make any comment on how the full year is panning out


    In saying that he did seem to suggest that NZ is a bit of struggle at the moment amongst the hmm and ahhs

    Yes a lot more pensive but I don't think he was listening to my barking but you hit the nail directly on the head with this comment mate. N.Z. retail a bit softer in yesterday's result announcement. I think the mountain warehouse with their much cheaper but still very good quality gear will continue to nibble around the edges of Kathmandu's lunch.

    KMD been in a steady downtrend since mid last year

    Today’s close of 218 is 37% off its high ....ouch

    Heading to sub 200 .....maybe even 170 looking at the chart

    Another stock whose chart looks like a mountain ...good picture if it levels at around 170

    Price action suggests not all ok in Kathmandu land.

    I lost alot of confidence in Kathmandu after the website hack in mid March. A few hundred dollars was taken out of my credit card after I bought stuff off their website during the hacking window. Thanks to the incompetence of their security team, I had to waste time and go through the trouble of getting the fraudulent transactions reversed at my bank.
    Thankfully I was able to get a full refund, but some other affected customers were not as fortunate and couldn't get refunded:
    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/business/...ectid=12213674

    In my opinion, Kathmandu need to take responsibility and assist affected customers get their money back, because it's all Kathmandu's fault.
    When customers go onto the Kathmandu website and enter their private information to buy stuff, they are putting their trust into Kathmandu to keep that data safe. Now that trust has been broken for many customers, including myself.

    Makes me think twice about buying off the Kathmandu website again and just buying stuff online in general.

    Ouch, TA looks dreadful doesn't it ! Had my info hacked from SKC's website, thankfully not credit card info. Eating at Fortuna Restaurant is bad for you in more ways than one lol.
    No apology from SKC or even a discount off a meal.

    Yep the chart looks awful

    Market telling us something ....sentiment gone really sour

    But then again some might say that seeing 37% offits highs it must be cheap as and a screaming buy
