thelastrealhero: Automated trading systems manipulating the share price to make money for big dealers. AI in action.
gregmorg: Only criticism from my point of view is the timid increase in the interim dividend. The 17% increase in pre tax profits is applauded and one might have hoped for the interim dividend, in the light of a savage dividend cut some three years or so ago,to show a more robust sign of a somewhat faster recovery in shareholder income. That may not be the answer to the reasons behind the share price fall. It maybe just that expectations got ahead of themselves!
kazoom: Interesting Walbrock thanks for that. But you don't appear to understand what went on with the Tesco accounting scandal; it wasn't a matter of delaying payments to suppliers at all, it was a question of recognising profits before they had actually been earned. Delaying payments to suppliers is a very different beast altogether and quite legitimate, so long as the suppliers are agreeable to it. Morrisons are booking their profits in the appropriate period, they are just holding on to the payments to suppliers for longer. It is a worthwhile question as to whether this is sustainable, but even if it reverses it won't materially impact profits just working capital. Oh and I would also dispute that the 70% share price rise was anything (or at least very little) to do with any potential Amazon takeover. The financials explain the shareprice, there is not really any material M&A premium in the price currently IMHO.
walbrock82: Having done some research there are some interesting patterns emerging from Morrisons. Morrisons saw improving earnings in the last three years, most are down to selling and leasing back properties this process contributed £280m to earnings when compared to £924m in underlying earnings. The company still own properties and has a low operating lease and rental expenses in comparisons with Sainsbury’s and Tesco. Operationally I see two weaknesses. First, net book value of fixtures and equipment aren’t written off in the balance sheet, despite £1.5bn original costs write down. It distorts the shareholder equity by £300m. Second, is average payables are at their highest of 50 days and higher than both Tesco and Sainsbury’s of 34 days and 38 days. Those who remember Tesco accounting scandal would know is delaying to suppliers were the main accusation. Elephant in the Room The takeover rumour is possible and the likely candidate is Amazon because of their partnership to supplying Amazon Fresh. That’s why the share price rose by 70%.

kcsham: Nerdlinger - 10 Jan 2017 - 18:17 - 1435 of 1439 - 0You think the share price is high now? Wait and see what happens when the massive short position finally closes.That is exactly why Nerdlinger posted the above comments.The present share price has covered the effects of the massive short position to date.As the short will eventually be closed, the price of MRW will .......
kcsham: madoff- I wish your estimation of a price between 180 and 220 will be correct, so I could get more of MRW. However, I would like to know what your estimation is based on?Based on the momentum of the rise of the share price, I rather believe it will go up to 250 - 255 pretty soon before taking a breather.
nerdlinger: countless, I wouldn't hold your breath, it doesn't change much. Average number of shares on loan (the number of shares on loan is widely accepted as a proxy for the total short position) last month according to Euroclear was 21.76% (Sep 22.57%, August 21.70%, July 21.77%, June 21.65%, May 21.25%, April 20.40%, March 22.12%, Feb 22.68%, Jan 22.31%). The short position disclosed to the FCA (and reproduced on only includes individual positions higher than 0.5% and is, therefore, not the TOTAL short position but this) seems to show now that all the usual suspects are taking up the slack played out by Lansdowne. Some hedge funds appear to be very keen to hold short positions in MRW, even at huge and increasing losses, but they never take the total shares on loan above 23%, perhaps that is all that is available to borrow. If we have reached a ceiling to the total short position then the hedgies have run out of heavy ammunition for manipulating the share price down or preventing its recovery. And then they have to buy 20-odd percent of the shares in issue. A short squeeze seems inevitable. Both inevitable and massive.
nerdlinger: I think a massive short squeeze is inevitable here. Maybe not tomorrow or next month but eventually. The net short position is unusually large for a company if they look about fair value based on projected profit. The only way the shortholders can encourage 25% (see Euroclear) of shareholders to sell is by offering significantly above fair value and judging by their track record these guys are probably going to wait until the ship has well and truly turned around and the share price is already rampant. Hence inevitable massive short squeeze.
terminated: The problem with Morrison's is that no one can really say what their profits will be this year. No one can really say how much the burning down of their main warehouse will impact on profits. The Market Cap. is presently £4,470m (at 193p) and to justify this they really need to be hitting close to 380m in profits just to sustain this. To justify a share price over 200p would require them to beat forecasts or at least be looking at a profit of 400m+ for 2017-2018. I just don't see how it will sustain a +200p share price
rob the slob: 4seeaproblem re post 1081 "presumably, the takeover rumour and speculation was just that ..."Your speculation on the previous speculations is only that! I would not assume that we have the full picture yet. The most certain thing we know is that Amazon will launch a major assault on the uk supermarket via online delivery (and just about every other retail sector that fits with its plan for world domination)They have chosen this as their initial route in. As a MRW holder, I feel safer assuming that this may not be their final move. The winners in the end.......Amazon of course. Whilst i accept that they may genuinely feel that MRW gives them the tools they need in the long run, part of me suspects this may be the 1st act in a longer saga yet to play out. If something works for them , they usually buy it out. If they think bits of the project need to be brought in house to improve, they buy it out ( think lovefilm)Maybe they would later move to buy mrw or ocado or maybe the plan is to drive the share price of their largest obstacle to growth, tesco down before buying them and ditching mrw and ocado to flounder wihout amazon after theyve nabbed all their online customers. All speculation at this stage
