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?

alex1621: Dear All I thought I was post this to help those that are losing sleep over the slide in the Morrison's share price Brandes Investment Partners have increased their stake in the company by over 5%. They are a specialist 'value investor' outfit based on the US West Coast - and very good at their job. Why Morrison's? Simple - the assets on the balance sheet are valued significantly greater than the now £4bn market cap. The quote below suggests that the large stores (not all stores) are valued at £7.5bn. Add in the other assets and the figure is well north of £7.5bn. Even at liquidation value this is pretty safe. Forget posters ... and ignore me if you wish ... but these people are not stupid; they will get a good return from this investment. Think about why they would commit £200m GBP (probably more)? It will either (1) turn around under new management or (2) be taken out by a predator. But well north of £1.70; and probably well north of any price it traded at in 2014. Personal opinion is that the share price might slide further if dividend is cut but it will not stay there. So switch off the BBs; forget about the share price ... and remember that you own an asset valued more than you paid for it. You need to be prepared to hold for between 2-3 years. It might take that long to play out. Don't let anyone one panic you out of your position. Source: The Guardian Newspaper Share Price was £2.51 when this was written. What that means is that "250-300 of its core, 25,000-45,000 square foot supermarkets are worth £7.5bn" ... and the current market cap is £4.03bn. And that is why Brandes Investment Partners is on the shareholder register. - The Article - source: The Guardian ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Mike Dennis at Cantor Fitzgerald, however, repeated his idea of the benefits of a possible break-up of the group: The shares look undervalued, despite expectations of a poor set of 2013 results and 160 basis point fall in return on capital employed, as Morrisons has one of the best retail balance sheets in the UK. We see potential for a £1bn buy-back (18% of share capital) via a sale and lease back and reduced capex. We also believe Morrisons' property review in March could indicate that 250-300 of its 495 core, 25,000-45,000 square foot supermarkets are worth £7.5bn plus or 95% of its current £7.9bn enterprise value. Ultimately, Morrisons could sell the majority of its stores, with the approval of the Competition Commission, to its main competitors and still have 195 regional supermarkets with manufacturing assets, worth £2.5bn-£3bn, and this could be run by some of the previous management. Morrisons' net asset value per share is 234p and we expect a dividend of 13p this year and next yielding 5.5%. The prospect of property sales helped propel Morrisons to the top of the FTSE 100 leaderboard, up 15.2p to 251.3p.

fox you: The Sunday Telegraph Questor looks at supermarket giant Sainsbury's, which saw a 7 per cent gain in its share price last week. The rise was based on results that showed sales falling for the sixth consecutive quarter. Sainsbury’s slumped to a £72m loss in the latest annual results, down from a £898m profit a year earlier. However, analysts disclaimed that the worst was now over. 'Questor isn’t so sure', the column says, 'and believes the ongoing price war with the discounters Aldi and Lidl will be a painful and long-drawn-out affair.' Sainsbury’s has fought back against discount rivals by reducing prices, simplifying deals and special offers, and improving its quality of own-brand premium products, Questor says. The there are signs that these tactics are stemming losses, if not winning the war. But Questor points to a report from credit rating agency Moody’s suggests that the 'Big Four' supermarkets have now trimmed as much as they can in the fight with Aldi and Lidl and may not be able to weather another price war. Sainsbury's shareshave fallen 19 per centc from about 326p, to 264p at the end of last week. The dividend has been ut from 17.3p, to 13.2p. Market consensus is for another 20pc fall, to 10.4p, in the year ahead. Questor concludes: 'Although the prospect of buying shares in a company that as recently as 2013 were worth £4 and paid a healthy dividend may seem attractive, Questor believes that until we understand which direction pricing is moving in, the shares are a value trap. Avoid.'

gumberr: Market likes turnaround plan objectives so share price should carry on rising like Tesco. As UK stores are recovering should see a share price rally methinks.

bluebelle: I'm surprised that no one here seems concerned about the possibility of a major dividend cut and the implications of that on the share price. Despite earlier statements, I just can't see how they can maintain the current pay out and invest in the business as they have implied, without further increasing debt, which I doubt the Chairman will allow or cutting the dividend significantly. Surely Potts will follow the time honoured tradition of getting as much of the bad news out of the way - and there's plenty of it - and blaming it (with justification in his case) on his predecessor. A good recovery stock IMHO but I can't see why a dividend cut of the size they will have to make will have any lesser effect on the share price than was the case with Tesco.

terminated: It means that they buy the share in such a way that they effectively bet it will go down. It can a dark cloud over the share price, that's the downside. However, if it looks like the share will recover they will need to buy the stock at todays price to close their position, and this results in a spike up for the share price. If you see Morrisons as an improving business then it's good, because all those shorts will need to close resulting in the price going up, if you think Morrisons will fail to improve then it will eventually drag the price down.

alibx11: I did say that my store purchases hadn't feed through yet, maybe mine just made the difference here.. LOL I'd be wary of these "buy out" stories, they are used to sucker people in and drive the price up so shorts can manipulate it down again. MM's make their money on share price moves up and down, stable SP's are not profitable for MM's. I see the short positions have now increased to 12.2%, was 11.89% last week so some funds think there's still little upside at the minute. Be intersting to see what comes out of the AGM tomorrow.

spacecake: re: cutting the divi will increase the share price.. that's straight out of a crystal ball. From this point forward no one knows the what the share price will be, what will move it up or down to any great degree. Morrison's recovery plan has moved from three years under Dalton to three to fives years according to comments from the new chairman.
