oakville: Shares’ bullish stance on Morrisons and bearish stance on Ocado – see Cover, 14 Jan ‘16 – has proved correct. Ocado looks increasingly vulnerable, since its partner has opened the door to a competitor, while news flow for Morrisons has turned positive. A strong Christmas trading statement showed like-for-like sales (ex fuel) up 0.2% over the nine weeks to 3 January 2016, a first positive same-store performance since the fourth quarter of 2012, with lower prices luring back disenchanted shoppers. Furthermore, the balance sheet is strong with substantial freehold asset backing. Morrisons owns over 80% of its store base and in a recent note, Shore Capital flags net asset value per share of 152p. Allied to falling net debt, this gives the turnaround every chance of success and provides a platform for increased future free cash generation. For the year to January 2016, Shore Capital forecasts pre-tax profit of £300 million (2015: £413 million) and a lowered dividend of 5p (2015: 13.7p), building to £330 million and 5.4p by January 2017. We’re staying positive ahead of Morrisons’ full year results (10 Mar), where a finance strategy update and more meat on the bones of the Amazon deal offer positive share price catalysts.
harvester: All looks good right now .Breakout &golden cross confirmed.200 share price level not a one-day wonder.As usual there will be some down-days to come but it looks as though a new resistance level is forming around 200 .With the shares now trending upwards, the shorters will feel the pain. The large short position will be eventually be a positive for investors. Eventually a big bear squeeze will force short closures which is made more difficult by momentum buyers competing for the available shares.ftse100 re-entry, take-over rumours, Amazon deal, Ocado deal revisions, a new more competent CEO are all positives for shareholders.The negatives like competitor price competition are all in the price. Disclosure: I hold a big MRW share position.
pka3: Short Tracker still shows a total of 13.64% short positions that are over 0.5%. Some of them are bloody recent. I hope the share price starts ticking up and the shorters get burned. hxxp://shorttracker.co.uk/company/GB0006043169/all
loganair: Yorkshire Post - MORRISONS is expected to rejoin the FTSE 100 index of leading shares following a sharp jump in its share price on the news it has signed a lucrative deal with internet giant Amazon The final decision will be made on Wednesday, but judging by its share price on Tuesday, the Bradford-based grocer will regain its place among Britain’s top 100 companies later this month. Morrisons’ upgrade could depend on the performance of other FTSE 100 contenders, which include Paddy Power Betfair and Mediclinic International. It could also depend on the demotion of Aberdeen Asset Management and Sports Direct. However London Stock Exchange group said it is likely to rejoin the FTSE 100 assuming there are no mishaps later today.
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
4seeaproblem: presumably, the takeover rumour and speculation was just that ...and it was this tie-up that was driving the share price ?
terminated: You can't make more land so it can only depreciate so much. I can see a day when retailers start to develop residential property on their land to derived added value, I'm sure I heard Morrison's were planning to do this last year. Regardless I don't think Morrison's land has been factored into share price so even it devalues by 50% it would have a limited impact on share price. The current price is based solely on projected profits and when the cost saving initiatives pay kick in the price should recover to £2 ish.
loganair: The activist hedge fund run by American billionaire Daniel Loeb has launched a major bet against Morrisons, becoming the latest in a long line of funds shorting the supermarket’s shares. Third Point, which manages $17.5bn, has this week built a short position worth almost £20m, or more than 0.5pc of Morrisons’ market value. Morrisons is now one of the most shorted stocks in the FTSE 100, with 20pc of its total shares on loan. The supermarket’s share price has fallen 14pc so far this year, and based on its current market value is in danger of being relegated from the FTSE 100 in next month’s quarterly index reshuffle. The grocer has struggled to bounce back from a profit warning in 2014, despite a pledge to spend £1bn on a price war with the other supermarkets. Third Point’s strategies include both straightforward investing and short-selling. The fund’s Morrisons play is its first short position in the London markets large enough to require disclosure to the Financial Conduct Authority.
diku: Somebody tell the new CEO share price going down....what new ideas has he come up with that the previous CEO's didn't?....retailing is no rocket science!.........I say look to merge with another food retailer whilst MRW is still in the FTSE100...but not for long if the share price slide continues...
spacecake: Looking at plunging share prices, during the BP oil spill the share price kept falling until the blow out well was capped, the share price fell about 64%. But once the immediate event was over the selling stopped and the share price started its recovery. It was a panic. It's difficult to see share price relief here at MRW until the declining sales are stopped and Kantar come out with a stable although lower market share number. I just wonder how long that will take, another 6 months, a year or longer?
