|With weak consumer spending and the pound's devaluation is there any wonder why this is the second most shorted company on AIM?|
|BREXIT in two years time ...... is this the end of bringing back 200 bottles of wine from Roscoff / Calais and no UK duty to pay ?|
|Gone weak again...|
|Looks to me like an opening auction with very little interest, allowing it to set a 'false' opening price on just a few orders, followed by nearly an hour without any trades so that the opening price remained the current price for that long. As soon as a trade did happen, the jump mostly reversed.
The sort of thing that could cause an opening auction to set such an opening price would be something like just two orders in the auction - one an opportunistic selling order hoping to get a high price, the other a buying 'market order' (a special type of order used in auctions only saying that the investor will accept whatever price the auction settles on). I think (*) that would result in the opening auction producing an uncrossing trade (the type UT trade) at the opportunistic selling price, for the smaller of the two numbers of shares - in this case 41 shares. And an opening auction that actually results in an uncrossing trade will set the opening price at the price of that trade.
In any event, looking at the trades list, only that 41-share uncrossing trade was affected by that (or whatever other technical effect produced the strange price jump). Total effect on all the investors involved in the auction was that the buyers overpaid the sellers by 41 times about 15p = about £6. So not a big deal!
(*) But am not certain - it's several years since I last looked at precisely how auctions resolve, and only the general outline has stuck in my mind...
|Can anyone enlighten on this morning's sudden jump on no news and few trades?|
|Well this is recovering quite nicely, difficult thing is timing when to sell (as always), I purchased in the low £2.90's a few months ago so am sitting on a decent gain, my original target was £3.75 - £4.
What interests me here is Naked Wines and it's growth, if N W was a separate entity I reckon it would be valued at a fair chunk of WINE's total market cap given it's growth potential and business model.|
|Christmas trading may have been good but the full implications of a the fall in the sterling have yet to be felt. Wouldn't be long of this stock.|
|Sales in line with forecasts, that will do for now to start the share price recovery.|
|No probs gswredland. Interactive Investor can be a bit hit-and-miss on their timetable sometimes.|
|Should be interesting. I did my bit for their sales in December!!|
|Thank you blips - thought it was today according to interactive investor|
|Tomorrow, according to their website.
|I thought they were releasing a statement today|
|As a result of weak high street sales, there are concerns about how Majestic Wines and Bonmarché have fared.|
|Keep some customers away maybe. But majestic shouldn't try and keep on a par with supermarkets; it's a battle they can't win. A loyal customer base with a higher average spend is the pay off.|
|---was a bit disappointed to walk in to my local Majestic over Christmas, and be hammered a pretty full £ 12 more per bottle - just because i did not want a full case. i thought they had got over this persistent point that customers have been complaining about for years and were trying to keep on par with at least some of the supermarkets. This point alone continues to keep people away....|
|profit warnng coming
This week the value of the pound fell to a six-year low against the Euro, falling to €1.10 for the first time since March 2010.
A direct result of Brexit, the WSTA has estimated that should the value of the pound fail to rally, the average cost of a bottle of wine coming into the UK from the EU is likely to increase by 29 pence, and by 22 pence for bottles imported from outside of the EU.
This is if retailers choose to pass on rising costs to the consumer, which is likely given increasing commercial pressures. Currently, 99% of the £1.8 million worth of bottles of wine drunk in the UK are imported, meaning that the vast majority of wines will be impacted.
“It is not well understood that the UK is the global hub of the international wine trade”, explains Patrick McGrath, managing director of UK wine importers Hatch Mansfield.
“The fall in the value of Sterling is having a serious and immediate impact on importers. While currency fluctuations are an accepted risk for importers, three months on there appears to be little prospect of a return to pre-Referendum values.
“The importers are having to meet the increased costs, which is already having a significant impact on profitability|

Questor says: Hold
Majestic Wines, once a common sight on the British high street, has struggled in recent years against the rise of online rivals and rock-bottom supermarket prices.
After a profit warning in September and years of decline, boss Rowan Gormley, who described last week’s half-year results as the “tipping point” for the company, needs to convince investors that his turnaround plan is working.
The fact that Majestic has reinstated its dividend at 1.5p should be a seen as a good first step.|
|Bought in after fall following the September update which I considered way OTT. It continued to fall after that so been showing a small loss but today's results vindicate my view and I'm back well into profit. Should continue to strengthen from here.|
|heading up nicely again|
|WINE and youll feel fine|
