|This company only makes a profit because it pay's peanuts to those that create the wealth , they deserve a share price which reflects these dodgy shenanigans , £3 on it's way.|
|The issue you highlight is symptomatic of western corporate culture.
Ultimately employees are not compelled to work for a particular company.|
|Exactly my point , average of 85 hours per week for £16k per year , while the senior managers are on £150k on 38 hour week , it's called screwing the staff! £3.00 on the way/|
|"This company likes to award those at the top , but not those at the coalface"
Besides John Lewis, name me one that doesn't.|
|This company likes to award those at the top , but not those at the coalface, it's a time bomb waiting to go of , should drift down to around £3 in next 12 months , take care.|
|Thanks, very modest return though.|
|Nice bit of trading EI.|
|Out at 7.1975 for a few shekels.|
|GNK's performance in the last financial crisis was petty exceptional given
the context of a world that looked like it was ending.
Like the Local Heroes concept, a very small part of the business admittedly,
noticed the Antelope in Surbiton and that has been transformed.
Hungry Horse at the opposite end of the market would not be my type of establishment
but caters for a niche well.
Cost inflation the big current issue to navigate.|
|I, too, have added despite the graph having a slight 'falling knife' feel. I have long-term funds to invest and this just feels a good buying opportunity on both PER and yield considerations.|
|Added a few lots, may regret this as sector companies have sold off
on results of late, looks longer term value near these levels, just IMV.
Should qualify that view by the addition of, if trading has developed in line
with expectations, quite important!.|
|Interim results next week.
If it follows the recent sector post update trend it may be watch out below,
however we have already come down a long way.|
|Bought back a very small amount, multiple reasons for current
caution on the sector.
Looking at the evening news last night the doom merchants are out in
full force on UK economic prospects, not helpful for confidence.|
|Ah, thanks, EI :-)|
|My deleted post was meant for the MARS board, checking the GNK price at the
time and posted in error.|
|What do all these dots mean, anyway?|
|Impressive 2 day recovery from the 716p oversold lows , and decent uptick volume today . I suspect one or two contrarian investors starting to look for bombed out domestic consumer stocks . We will see if this price level holds next week .|
|I exited on the bounce a couple of weeks ago as mentioned on the SHA board,
got up to 798, think 804/5 was the top, it proved to be fleeting.
Did not like the lack of any director buying post update, and 2017/18 margins
now very much in focus.|
|Red, not connected to either GKN or MARS, but a holder of the latter. See GKN as the market leader and MARS as the aspirant! Find comparisons of the 2 quite useful, and appreciate all jeffian's points, here and on the MARS thread. As you say, this is GKN, so adieu! ex|
Thanks for the comment.
Are you a director or employee of Mars?
PS They will not tell you the cost of rolling over parts of the debt, each time that they need to do so. I asked.
Anyway, enough of Mars, this is the Gnk board.|
|Yes, red, like you I'm in MARS since W&D days (in most brewers/pubco's actually as I was in the business). I don't have a significant holding but it sits in the drawdown SIPP churning out a (poorly covered, I admit) divi and it suits my purposes. I look for growth elsewhere!|
|thanks all, the MARS debt is largely long-term, structured, asset-backed and to a considerable extent on fixed interest.|
