|As I have said in the past Aldis & Lidls honeymoon period will come to an end...only matter of time....and as for kantar Worldpanel...if you believe them then you will believe anything...
rampant growth in the UK is stalling as sales have slumped by around 5pc at the discounters' shops that have been open for more than a year, according to a fresh analysis of industry figures.
The slowing sales raise fresh speculation about the reasons for the abrupt departure Lidl's former chief executive, Ronny Gottschlich. Last month Mr Gottschlich unexpectedly resigned after 16 years with the German retail chain and was replaced by the head of the supermarket's Austrian business with no explanation given.
Earlier this week, data by Kantar Worldpanel revealed that Lidl and its German discounter peer Aldi were continuing to grow market share by adding around 60 to 70 stores a year.
However, analysts and retail sources have said that Lidl's market share of 4.6pc, compared to 4.3pc the year before, and a total sales rise of 8.4pc, mask the true picture of like-for-like sales - an industry benchmark that measures sales at stores that have been open for more than a year.
Lidl has won over British middle classes with cheap wines and discounted upmarket produce, like lobsters.
Clive Black, analyst at Shore Capital, said that the Kantar figures and Lidl's shop opening rate "would imply a collapse of same-store trade at Lidl of maybe minus 4pc to 6pc".
"Perhaps the data is rogue but it would correspond quite remarkably with significant and surprise management change at the organisation."|

|Lansdowne Partners appear to be closing their substantial short position. Maverick Capital are mopping up some of it. There might be others like Marshall Wace helping but as yet undeclared. Probably a bit of a short squeeze occurring then. Plenty more where that came from.|
|What will be next?|
|C Investor, no problem! ??????|
|Thank you kcsham.|
|Rises to 240p soon? If this happens soon enough, I will not be surprised to see 250p in a couple of weeks.Keep our fingers crossed.|
|C investor, You are nearly spot on. Well done.|
|230p - probably by the end of today !|
|Is there a bidder circle..ing?...|
|Won't be that long !

230p Would Be Nice !|
|This share is preparing itself to go to 230p. If it closes at 225 or above. It will up to 230 within a week.IMHO.|
|All the reasons for it go up?....screw the shorts!!...|
|Shooters costs mounting up and how long this can continue??|
|Shorting on MRW rises up to 19%.|
|Think the novelty & growth rates of Lidls & Aldis will just flatline...operating costs will eventually catch up....market probably sensing it....|
|I see Motley Fool has turned positive on MRW after a few years of saying keep clear. They now consider we are a growth stock and that now is a good time to consider for the long term, especially with an expected increase in earnings of 36% this year and a further 9% next year.|
|Scotches, thanks for the information; considering that some of the shorts go back to 2012, they must be racking up the fees.|
|230p Would Be Nice !|
|Looks like MRW wants to go up now that BigT has sold out!!...No Advice Intended..|
"A stock loan fee is a fee charged by a brokerage firm, to a client, for borrowing shares."
"A stock loan fee is an often-overlooked cost associated with shorting a stock. While short-selling can be lucrative if the trader’s view and timing are right, the costs involved with it are substantial. Apart from the stock loan fee, the trader has to pay interest on the margin or cash borrowed for use as collateral against the borrowed stock, and is also obligated to make dividend payments made by the shorted stock."|
