I have sold my holding in Halfords. I bought Halfords last September and have made some 37% out of the holding. That in itself is not a good enough reason for selling but I am slightly nervous ahead of next week's trading statement. So far at least we have had a pretty mild winter which may well have meant that its sales of winter motoring consumables such as anti-freeze, screen wash and high margin replacement car batteries may have been a little slow. I have decided therefore to lock in my profit and read next Tuesday's third quarter update from the sideline.
