Well in fairness to Mr Martin he has a valid point in maintaining the industry has not stood with him in arguing against unfairness in taxation. Perhaps now they will be forced to. Sold my small trade at 6.65, the low does not look in to me, in fairness my view is often too cautious, as with AZN recently.

Deutsche Bank as well :-) 13:37 15 Feb 2017 Deutsche Bank comes not to Bury St Edmunds, but to praise the Suffolk-based brewer The great British pub is facing hard times, and they are going to get tougher, according to Deutsche Bank (DB). Harder times will throw the spotlight more on free cash flow and the pub operators’ ability to self-fund investment, and in that contest there is a clear winner in DB’s view: Greene King PLC (LON:GNK). “Only Greene King can self-fund all of its capex (maintenance and growth) and pay a dividend from free cash flow. All the other sector companies we cover either require disposals or pay no/reduced dividends,” the German bank said in a review of the sector. Overall, DB remains cautious on the pubs & restaurants sector, which is facing a growing number of cost head winds. There is a concern that an unclear economic outlook will undermine UK consumer confidence and spending, which naturally will have an effect on the trading of pubs. Despite the cautious view, it is a buyer of Greene King and also E I Group PLC (LON:PLC), which used to be known as Enterprise Inns. Both have self-help – often broker code for cost-cutting – agendas that should provide some protection from sales and margin pressures. proactiveinvestors.co.uk

Ian, the sentiment change on HSBA has been dramatic, weaker GBP helping and dividend looks secure for now.

Lat time I looked ta the pub closure figures they were running at 21 a week, down from 27 a week at the start of 2016. Would expect by the end of '17 that figure will be a deal higher than 21 a week.

Market report: Pub stocks falter as broker warns industry faces worst cost pressures in a decade Broker Canaccord Genuity painted a sobering picture of the British pub industry after it warned the sector is facing the worst cost pressures in a decade with a triple whammy of labour costs, currency-weakness induced food cost rises and rising business rates. In a bearish note, Canaccord said the average pub faces an increase in its cost base of around 3pc this year The broker downgraded pub operator Mitchells & Butler as it is the most food-led in the sector, leaving its pre-tax profits and ambitious capital expenditure plans vulnerable to rising costs and competition. It reiterated its “sell” rating on JD Wetherspoon as it cautioned that the market is factoring in a good half-year performance but not the growing headwinds in the second half of the year. Analyst Nigel Parson added: “It is now busy selling pubs we believe it should never have opened, in our view.” Meanwhile, it warned Greene King is suffering from “mild indigestion” in the wake of its Spirit acquisition.

Thanks Ian, appreciated. Supermarkets mentioned mainly in terms of the taxation differential.

Not really. I saw you mentioned supermarket sales recently too. I just don't equate eating/drinking at home with the 'going out' market. I use pubs and restaurants quite a lot (!) and I would always rate atmosphere/craic above the mere mechanics of eating and drinking. Personally, I find it incomprehensible that anyone would answer "What shall we do tonight, dear?" with "Let's have a takeaway and a can of Sainsbury's lager", but maybe that's just me. 8-) P.S. I bought another 5k today at 651. They may well go lower, but in the long term I think I'll look back and be happy (as I have been with my previous purchases). Punters were making much the same noises when I bought HSBA not long ago at 485. Look at that now!

racg, don't bet the farm on this for goodness sake, however GNK looks one of the sectors strongest, it will hopefully also be a longer term winner. What may need to happen is an acceleration of pub and restuatant closures, no doubt in my mind this will happen, which will take out capacity. however It won't happen overnight.

Hi Phil, thanks for the view. Had a look at GNK's Hungry Horse pricing last night and they are positioning very aggressively atm, which is probably what is needed.
