lord gnome: Good set of numbers and a good acquisition at a sensible price. The market will like this. The placing will hold back the share price until it is out of the way, but that is going to be temporary and today we have a genuine buying opportunity - so I have. Paid a tad under 1.41 because I prevaricated about it. Never mind, I can see these getting back above 150 in very short order.
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.’
lord gnome: Two votes of support then, Skinny. Hopefully someone will take notice and give the share price a lift.
maffoo: The pubs seem hugely popular in my hometown of Manchester, but where I live now, in Bristol, they are pretty much non-existent. The closest thing is a single Pitcher & Piano in the city centre (which is not my glass of Prosecco, but seems quite popular and people seem to splash out a lot there). I hope the share price will bounce back up to ~150 at some point; it appears to have plateaued/squeezed a bit in the past three months or so. It's a massively slow moving one at any rate! I've been putting some US tech stocks into my portfolio recently and seeing the difference between their minute-by-minute mosquito-like movements and this one that's like a salted slug is quite funny. The dividend is definitely very nice, however. I think the question is what kind of direction we see it moving in. If the slow uptrend continues and it's hitting the 180s by 2020, I'll be a happy bunny.
r ball: the share price is a reflection of expectations. On the plus side we have lower increase in minimum wage, increasing profits, reduced pension deficit etc,. on the downside we have subdued wage growth, possible interest rate rises, revaluation of estate downwards etc. Its difficult to know what weight the analysts place on these things but they tend to come out in the wash on a long term trend i.e. 5+ years. Solid hold for dividend.
spacecake: Looking at the share price your would think the nation has gone tea total
speedsgh: True, but worth bearing in mind that much of the profit made these days comes from food sold in pubs, not the drink. Current share price weakness is partly a reflection of the uncertainty as to whether consumers will start tightening the purse strings + eating/drinking out less. I'm undecided as to the likelihood of such an eventuality but the Brexit vote has created this uncertainty. Aimho
jeffian: If you're a trader, this share is a bore and it always will be. If you want to tuck it away long term, as I have done in my SIPP, and live off the divis while the share price looks after itself, it fits the bill. Horses for courses.
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.
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.
