spacecake: The share price has gone nowhere for three years, until the company gets stuck into a serious debt reduction plan and get back to positive free cash flow the share price will continue it's sideways direction.
rmillaree: I am a fairly newish holder - having bought in after the last rights issue when the share price was at a much lower level than where they are at now. To my mind management haven't done much wrong that i can see with the somewhat limited deck of playing cards they have at their disposal - at the moment some may say its investing to stand still but if they are growing profits , improving the standard of their estate and debt is reducing (adjusted for inflation) or staying static whilst managing to pay a reasonable divi - thats not a bad result in an what i presume is overall declining market (beer sales in pubs) Not being around at the time i can't really comment on what went on previously but they weren't the only company directors caught with their trooosers down when the recession hit.
luderitz: What go's round comes round Martin, as long as they don't knock them down it doesn't rule out a return to their former use. In the meantime probably good news for MARS share price.
m.t.glass: Share price has climbed 22% in 20 weeks since the May results. Nothing much in this statement to excite a further immediate rise I guess.
lord gnome: Sound update. That should make sure the Chairman has an easy AGM and take the sting out of redart's 'grief'. A good day for the share price is in store and it leaves me wishing I had had the funds to take advantage of the last dip below 90p. Well done Marstons.
wskill: Looks good to me but what do I know seems the city does not like companies to deliver good results I am also a shareholder in SIV which yesterday increased profits by 23% and the divi by 30% for next to no reaction in the share price still holding MARS for the long term well done to the management I say keep up the good work. Looks like this good news has caught them with their shorts down L2 is being attacked by tiny AT sells 100 shares at a time of course their is always 2 sides to an AT trade a buyer and a seller never the same person or so they tell us.
mesquida: Not exactly figures - it is the interim management statement, which will give a clue as to how trade is progressing during the second half of the current financial year - potentially it can have as much effect on the share price as the actual figures themselves.
diku: This was one of the 6 stocks for the summer months from the media.. Marstons Share price: 97p A natural benefactor of the longer, lighter summer evenings are the nation's watering holes. The two four-day weekends we're due this month thanks to the royal wedding and Easter plus the May and August Bank Holidays are sure to prove a pull for the pub industry. Pub companies are drawing revenues from sale of food, providing a boost to balance sheets. Marstons has also announced plans to push this revenue stream further and to focus on being a family destination. Marstons has had a difficult time so far this year, losing nearly 20pc of its share-price value, but Mr Raynor said the company was a buy due to its attractive yield. He said: "This is a higher-risk recovery stock with an attractive yield, which has been swimming against the tide of economic and sector concerns. Recent weakness has seen the share price fall but there is also potential growth on offer. It is high risk, but the potential rewards are worth the risk." Barclays Stockbrokers tips pub companies Green King and Whitbread. BUY: 8, HOLD: 9, SELL: 2
lord gnome: Pub group and brewer Marstons' share price has taken a hit in the last couple of months making what Peel Hunt described as the best operator in the modern pub industry an even bigger bargain. Snow disruption, an 'overwhelming exposure' to places with average public sector employment, and the north/south divide (the claim that the consumer economy will become increasingly two-state) are thought to have had an adverse affect on sentiment towards the stock recently. However, Peel Hunt thinks that these fears have been overblown, especially the north/south divide where, in the broker‚s view, 'it is better the trade in a good location in a weak geography than the other way round.' 'Marston‚s in recent years has thrown off the vestiges of the old regional brewery model to become an effective contemporary retailer with a strong emphasis on value, backed up by interesting beer brands that give character to its pubs,‰ says the broker.' Peel Hunt recommends a 'buy', along with a target price of 124p.
eric gardener: yes I know, when I actually look at mars I see firstly they are at my current break even price so there's the psycological aspect of that and there's a 7% divi comming up soon. So in some respects as long as the share price holds or rises and the divi gets paid this is like owning a preference share withou the massive buy and sell spread. well worth holding and certainly not for people who like to pull up their plants to see if they're growning. the other side of all of this is the most boring share price in eternity which literally is like form of torture, it just does nothing. I'm sure people sell out of sheer boredom.
