Halfords Group (LON:HFD) – cracking interim results, but not unexpected

The Interim results from Halfords Group (LON:HFD) obviously pleased the market.


And why shouldn’t they?


The 26 weeks to 2 October showed a 9.6% jump in revenues to £638.9m and an underlying pre-tax profit up 116.2% at £56m. Earnings leapt 88.5% to 23p per share.


The group’s shares responded with a move up to 278p at one stage, before easing back to close that night at 250p.


They close the week at around 248p, a level that does not need to be chased too hard in pursuit of greater gains.
