KATE CALVERT CANTOR
While Halfords was up against weak comparables, this is a very strong underlying performance and we believe it also reflects management actions within the business.

JEAN ROCHE PANMURE
Halfords first quarter performance has significantly beaten consensus...Though our view on the stock is positive, our 2014 forecasts are prudent at 10 per cent below consensus at profits of £52m.

JOHN STEVENSON PEEL
Halfords has delivered a strong first quarter, benefiting from weak comparatives. We see significant low hanging fruit as management get to grips with delivering a better service and retail environment.
