fenners66: With the growing middle class in the far east I believe there may well be hope for the co. If it markets properly there could be genuine growth to come over there. However having found out how it is owned and run I suspect there will be one gainer in the end and he is the major shareholder. It would seem logical that he allows the share price to dwindle pending taking it private and who can stop him? The removal of cash from the balance sheet was pre-meditated. The question posed before of whether the deal was unconnected to the directors - implied not explicit - still remains for me, we all know what the answer should be....

whiskeyinthejar: Yes that's my understanding - he controls about 60%. It's not a coincidence IMO that MUI and Laura Ashley are both into hotels and office buildings. Interestingly, though MUI share price did quite well over speculation about his divorce. IIRC. The feeling there I think was that the outcome could be that the value locked up in some of his badly performing assets could be realised (sold) as a result of the divorce. Similarly if he was to sell some of his stake in LA that then I guess that might be good for LA depending on how he did it.

whiskeyinthejar: Exactly. Daylight robbery. But when an offer is made to the prevailing share price, at say 12p, people often accept it rather than take the hit of it falling back again to say 10p. Or even lower.

whiskeyinthejar: Im not trying to short or buy in lower. I just think I can learn from stocks even when I dont hold. In fact its often the best way. The office block isnt my main concern. Peng knows property (it's one of main businesses of his MUI group) and so Ive a fair idea he will soon make a profit selling the building. The elephant in room IMO is Peng himself, who as majority shareholder can do as he pleases with little explanation. I think it's obvious he doesn't care about the share price. I suspect that's hes happy to see the share price go down as if he wants he can bid to buy remaining shares at any time. The costs of listing on AIM are significant for small companies so win win for him. iirc the shops don't perform that well, perhaps they should be dumped, but the online business and the hotel is generating significant cash. Shareholders can fight him over what he would decide to offer, but I think if he made an offer at 12p today it'd go through.

rcturner2: The FTSE was up 5% in May alone, in a rising market all you have to find is alpha shares, what is the obsession with dodgy companies and terrible share price charts?

whiskeyinthejar: Well he owns about 50% of MUI as Im sure you all know. Https://www.bloomberg.com/quote/MUI:MK Im not surprised to read MUI has a property investment division and hotels including Corus chain. This article says rumoured pay off will be mix of cash and property and if they sold off a couple of prime Corus hotels including the Corus Hotel Hyde Park that'd be enough: Http://www.theedgemarkets.com/article/all-eyes-mui-chairman’s-next-move So rather than selling shares that are depressed, it would make more sense to me if he directed MUI to sell assets. The problem i think for share price is we just don't know how he plans to pay her off. But perhaps things will soon become clearer.

srpactive: Yes share price not so nice I agree, although I have been buying some more whilst down here. It is a strange industry this if the share price was 30p investors would be more confident and would be happy to buy, but at 15p the opposite. dyor

valhamos: "1p dividend on 17p share price is very good actually." And it will look even better if the share price falls to 10p! The dividend was one of the attractions here and the recent communications from this company does not convey the impression that they know what they are doing in terms of getting a grip on loss of profitability.

jimmywilson612: I disagree Carcosa - I think it matches the funamentals and shows how tough retail is at the moment. If you simply compare the PE to other retailers: ALY: PE 10 MKS: PE 9 BON: PE 6.8 NXT: PE 11 SCS: PE 11 Therefore I dont see if necessarily as a decline in ALY share price, but a decline in the over view of the retail sector.

srpactive: imho the way aly share price is being kept at this level with all the good and takeover retail news leads me to think a bid will come sooner rather than latter. For example the share price for charting purposes etc is showing 25p, when the bid is 26p and the offer 26.5p. dyor regards active
