qantas: Essential investor due price is on the rise no point shorting when we are in a price rise due shorters lose big time as as are gambling on the share price only. 105,000,000 shares they need to buy back is going to be a amazing rise and will cause capitulation just like VW IN 28OCT08 By Sarah Marsh | FRANKFURT Volkswagen (VOWG.DE) briefly became the world's biggest company by market value on Tuesday, as short sellers caught betting on a price drop with borrowed stock scrambled to find shares after a buying spree by Porsche (PSHG_p.DE). Short sellers desperate to close their positions paid as much as 1,005 euros a share during the session following Sunday's news that there was less than 6 percent of VW voting stock still floating in the market. At that price Volkswagen's voting stock was worth 296 billion euros ($370 billion), or more than the $343 billion market capitalization of Exxon Mobil (XOM.N). VW shares later closed trading on Tuesday up 82 percent at 945 euros. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Short sellers make money by betting that the stock they sell will drop in price. If the stock drops, the short seller buys it back at a lower price and returns it to the lender. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Risks and disadvantages CFDs carry a high level of risk to your capital and you should only deal with money you can afford to lose.

philanderer: 3 top FTSE 100 dividend stocks going cheap EZJ, RMG and MKS On your Marks High street giant Marks & Spencer Group(LSE: MKS) has also had a dismal year, its share price down 21% in that time. It still trades lower than it does five years ago. This is a tale of two very different divisions: its food halls are enjoying the best of times, its clothing sales are suffering the worst of times. The first has caught the foodie zeitgeist, the second is a fashionista fail. Chief executive Steve Rowe is wisely backing its winning food formula and stepping away from its losing clothing division. He plans to roll out more than 200 new Simply Food stores, while cutting back on around 60 Clothing & Home outlets, although some will get a revamp. All this will cost money, around £500m, so wave goodbye to any special dividends. Consumers may be feeling the squeeze but trading at 9.5 times earnings and yielding 5.7%, such headwinds now look priced-in.

qantas: Marks & Spencer got a boost on Tuesday as Jefferies upgraded the stock to 'Buy' from 'Underperform' and hiked the price target to 370p from 250p, pointing to the company's strategy progress. The drop in the share price from around 440p in May 2016, following CEO Steve Rowe's first strategy presentation and then compounded by the Brexit vote, has been dramatic, Jefferies said. However for the past six months, it has fluctuated around 340p implying a forward price-to-earnings ratio of 11-12x, in-line with where M&S traded between 2010 and 2013. Jefferies said there are a number of reasons to be bullish on the stock right now.

philanderer: Jefferies note: (ShareCast News) - Marks & Spencer got a boost on Tuesday as Jefferies upgraded the stock to 'buy' from 'underperform' and hiked the price target to 370p from 250p, pointing to the company's strategy progress. The drop in the share price from around 440p in May 2016, following CEO Steve Rowe's first strategy presentation and then compounded by the Brexit vote, has been dramatic, Jefferies said. However for the past six months, it has fluctuated around 340p implying, a forward price-to-earnings ratio of 11-12x, in-line with where M&S traded between 2010 and 2013. Jefferies said there are a number of reasons to be bullish on the stock right now. The bank said its survey results show that the investment M&S has made over the past few years is steadily paying off, with improving perceptions of its multi-channel offer. it said M&S's multi-channel customers are particularly impressed, with 45% prepared to highly recommend the retailer. Jefferies said the closure of 53 loss-making international stores relieves the group of £45m of operating losses. "The strategy to shift the mix of Clothing & Home and Food space from 65/35% to nearer 55%/45% over the next five years plays to M&S' omni-channel and Food strengths and gives them over 1,000 convenient stores for Food and click & collect. "The plan could result in flat profits over the next two years when competitors will likely see significant falls given the macro-environment, and then see profits improve in FY20E and FY21E." However, there are also reasons be bearish, according to Jefferies, such as the fact that the plan comes with increased execution risks. Also, it said M&S needs to make sure it remains price and quality competitive during a difficult market environment, having already realised many of the easier gross margin gains. At 1009 GMT, the shares were up 2.4% to 336.88p. HTTP://www.sharecast.com/news/marks-spencer-boosted-by-jefferies-upgrade/25609332.html

philanderer: '3 income stocks I’d buy in January' On your Marks High street stalwart Marks & Spencer (LSE: MKS) has had a very different year to BP, its share price falling 25% in the last 12 months. Some might see this as a recovery opportunity, but be warned, plenty have got sucked into that trap over the last seven or eight years. The real value at Marks lies in its income prospects: it currently yields 5.74%, nicely covered 1.9 times. Clothing retailers look set for a tough year, judging by the troubles afflicting Next. Marks & Spencer’s general merchandise (clothing) division fell out of fashion years ago but bizarrely this may give it some protection, as management is wisely tilting the business towards its flourishing food operation. Posh grub looks more Brexit-proof to me: Brits gotta have their ready meals. Its current valuation of just 9.45 times earnings should also whet the appetite.

qantas: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-38219698 82% CFD Have lost money. New rules to help protect investors using financial spread betting - in which 82% have lost money - have been proposed by the financial watchdog. The Financial Conduct Authority wants to tackle the "contract for difference" (CFD) market, which includes financial spread betting. It fears that retail customers are using products they do not understand. The CFD market offers the opportunity to speculate on a shift in the market without owning the underlying asset. The FCA is proposing measures to limit the risks of CFD products and ensure that customers are better informed. "We have serious concerns that an increasing number of retail clients are trading in CFD products without an adequate understanding of the risks involved, and as a result can incur rapid, large and unexpected losses," said Christopher Woolard, the FCA's executive director of strategy and competition. Analysis Image copyright AFP/Getty Images Image caption Plus 500 are one of Atletico Madrid's sponsors Simon Gompertz, BBC personal finance correspondent Some 125,000 small investors are active in betting on movements in shares and currencies rather than buying the underlying investment. Spread betting firms are relentless in recruiting them, by blazoning their brands on football shirts, on public transport and in free newspapers. The internet has made dealing and advertising much easier. The companies pay to feature prominently on internet search engines and advertise on social media. A handful of players dominate in the UK, but 96 are authorised and another 130 promote their online trading from elsewhere in Europe, mostly from Cyprus. Losses can be instantaneous, with little chance of recovery, because they allow people to take big risks with small stakes. It means that a small movement in the price of shares can result in the security deposit an investor has put up - the margin - being wiped out. These complex investments are often sold to ordinary investors online. The potential losses or gains can be much larger than from traditional trading as an investor can hold a trading position representing a much higher value than the size of the stake invested. The FCA's analysis found that 82% of clients lost money on such products. The average among clients checked by the watchdog was a loss of £2,200 a year. Its plans include: Standardised risk warnings given to customers Proportion of winners and losers on products published by providers Capping the proportion of "borrowed" funds that can be used for trading by inexperienced retail clients Preventing providers from using any form of trading or account opening bonuses or benefits to promote CFD products Consultation on the plans is open until March, with a further statement expected from the FCA in the spring. Immediate impact Shares in firms offering these services were hit hard following the announcement. CMC Markets and IG Group were the biggest fallers on the FTSE 250, both down about 30% in morning trading. Plus 500, which also saw its share price fall, said the FCA's plans would have "a material, operational and financial impact on the UK regulated subsidiary". This represents about 20% of its global business. IG Group said that it recognised there were "shortcomings in the approach to the marketing of CFDs" by certain firms, often operating from outside the UK. "Certain of the FCA proposals could enhance client outcomes," it added. "However, the FCA's proposals do not appear to directly apply to firms operating from outside the UK offering CFDs and binaries to clients in the UK on a cross-border services passport from another EU member state. "IG will carefully consider the implications of the FCA consultation paper." CMC said it had consistently focused on higher-value experienced premium clients who understood the markets and products they were trading.

danboris2: The MKS share price must be a bit exposed at these high levels given all the turbulence in the market. Not convinced this share price will go any higher in the short term and the risk must be to the downside. Time to take some profits!
