exel: scobak, if IC are pushing GNK (perfecting reasonable) then that is doubly good news for MARS re 1. sector sentiment and 2. MARS edge on fundamentals (last time I looked). Will re-do the MARS v GNK profile re TNAV ps as % of share price, PE, yield, cover, sales growth, gearing, etc. unless it's already been done? Good luck all!
speedsgh: Can't see anything new on the IC website. Just this from a couple of weeks ago... Marston's looks too cheap (11/10/17) - HTTPS:// IC VIEW: True, there is considerable uncertainty about the outlook for the UK economy. But trading at seven times forecast earnings and offering a 7 per cent yield, we think the future is unlikely to be quite as dire as suggested by Marston’s 107p share price. Buy.
essentialinvestor: There will be no large buys with the share price at this levels. Institutions are hugely down on the recent placing price And in any case issuing shares on the current rating would be dilutive.
richie1218: It’s been a painful year for shareholders of Marston’s (LSE: MARS) as the pubco’s share price has fallen over 20% in value. However, this means they’re now trading at less than eight times forward earnings while kicking off a whopping 7.1% dividend yield that is still covered by earnings. Encouragingly, there are also signs that a nascent turnaround in the company’s fortunes are beginning to take hold. The company’s full year trading update released Tuesday morning reported positive like-for-like (LFL) sales growth in each of its divisions as well as the opening of 19 new pubs and plans to open a further 15 in fiscal year 2018. This is great news for the company as the sector as a whole has been fighting falling footfall and subdued out-of-home alcohol purchasing for several years now. Marston’s has fought back with a twin-pronged strategy that has seen it turn tatty old boozers into family-friendly pubs, heavy on food offerings, as well as going upmarket with other pubs and bringing in plenty of craft beer options. The group’s brewing options were also a bright spot during the year to September as it shipped 6% more volume of its own brand beers than in the prior period. Adding in the acquisition of Charles Wells brewing and beer distribution rights for £55m helped drive good market share gains. The trading update didn’t release any word on profit movement for the year as a whole but underlying earnings per share did rise 4% year-on-year (y/y) in H1. At the end of the opening half, net debt was level at £1.3bn, or 5 times EBITDA, which is in line with competitors and makes sense for what is essentially a property company. This figure will constrain huge returns of capital to shareholders but it did allow for a 3.8% rise in interim dividends. If management’s plans to increases same-store sales and open new outlets continues to work, I reckon Marston’s could be an attractively priced income share right now.
spacecake: I see there are no time references to recent trading, such as last years statement which said "In the last 10 weeks of the period like-for-like sales have grown 1.8%." That to me along with the mention of newly identified cost savings is indicating that recent trade has dropped off and I'm not too sure if "changes to the operational structure" is going to make comparisons easier in the future! Not the end of the world, but for an end of term report... must try harder or the share price will continue to get whipped.
lord gnome: Unless there is something hidden between the lines that has escaped my notice, then that update reads as well as I could have hoped for. No reason at all for the share price to be where it is and I would expect it to make progress from here. MARS is clearly doing better than GNK.
spacecake: Share price has been going down for two years, whatever the company choose to say next week I doubt it will be anything more than last years statement with slightly different numbers. LFL 2.3 - 2.7% last year, near inflation, no real growth. Expect much the same LFL at inflation level. Cash flow spent on debt service and building ever more pubs. I wonder how the Wells Brewery placement investors are feeling, maybe they will discuss it at the new £10 mill HQ vanity project below... hTTps://
exel: EI - don't disagree at all! have commented on CapEx criteria before. can't believe the MARS Board only has one gear on this issue, given all the experience & metrix available to them. Sense they may signal a modicum of 'dial back' with the UK economy 'weak and weakening'. But also feel their biz profile/mix and GNK's are sometimes wrongly compared. Clearly there are comparisons, but these are not total 'like for like' sector travellers. Not expecting fireworks from the 10oct17 update, but am hoping for some evidence that MARS is performing a tad better than the share price would suggest. Will look again at last time's update from 12/10/16...
lendmeafiver: Quote in an iii linked article from Jonathan Brown lead manager of Invesco Perpetual UK Smaller Companies Investment Trust "Wetherspoon has a good estate and is a well-run business. If we do get a recession, it will still trade well." Marston's, whose share price has been noticeably weak recently, made the right decision to sell off old pubs and invest in new ones, he adds. The firm also has the advantage of brewing its own products, and it is benefiting from a revival in demand for craft beer and real ale.
speedsgh: Peel Hunt downgrades strong Marston’s - HTTP:// Peel Hunt has downgraded pub retailer Marston’s (MARS) on the back of recent strength in the share price. Analyst Douglas Jack downgraded his recommendation from ‘buy’ to ‘add’ and increased the target price from 150p to 160p. The shares rose 2.5p, or 1.8%, to 145.4p ahead of interim results. Jack is expecting profit before tax to be up 1% to £33.5 million and over the longer term for margins to benefit from ‘a shift in the sale mix’. ‘We expect forecasts to be held on 18 May, with accommodation expansion providing upgrade risk to our 2019 estimated forecasts, which are 2% above consensus,’ he said. ‘We believe Marston’s offers a relatively low risk model with a secure dividend – yielding c.5% - which should act as a support for the share price.’
