qantas: Clothing retailer Next lifted current year profits guidance as online sales continued to soar during the Covid lockdown, despite reporting a slump in annual profits, although in line with expectations. The company on Thursday said it now expected profits of £700m, up £30m after a boom in sales during February and March. Pre-tax profits for the year to January 31 more than halved to £342m. Dividend payments remained suspended and debt was cut by £502m to £610m.
xxxxxy: Stephen Brindle18 Mar 2021 1:06PMIf I understand it correctly, Amazon is looking to purchase a food retailing chain, and as it has already linked up with Morrisons for home delivery, I wonder whether that is Amazon's target for a possible takeover in due course.... Daily Telegraph... Or maybe MKS is a target. Who knows.
xxxxxy: John Lewis is going the way of Debenhams. And in agony it will be.Was avoidable. All sad.Consolation, less competition for MKS.Boohoo is only for the poor and housebound.Depressing stuff.
philanderer: Hello free, hope you're keeping well. Been a much better last 3 months for MKS, just wish I'd doubled up sub 100p ;-) Can't see 165p/170p being out of reach in the near term if the general market holds. We seem to be over the worst and getting back in favour a little. Tackling the online business well. M&S to add host of third-party brands to online offer HTTPS://
xxxxxy: MKS???.... Global revenue from e-sports is expected to increase 68% between now and 2023, and companies like furniture maker Ikea, as well as supermarkets Aldi and Lidl want to cash in on this trend.In 2020, the global e-sports market was valued at around $950m (£681m) and it is estimated to reach almost $1.6bn in 2023.Crypto trading news website said that discounters Aldi and Lidl recently signed several e-sports players while Ikea "recently showed signs of recognising the gaming industry's potential, with the company announcing the introduction of furniture collections specifically for gamers."E-sports is a form of sport competition using video games, often taking the form of organised, multiplayer video game competitions, particularly between professional players, individually or as teams.Ikea launched last month a new "gaming range" that was to be made available in China in January, in Japan in May and globally from October 2021.?Chart: Statista"There are 2.5 billion gamers around the world, a diverse group united by their love of esports and gaming – and by being an overlooked group from a life-at-home perspective," the company had said in a statement.Partnering with hardware company Republic of Gamers, Ikea said its new range will "democratise the gaming experience, by creating relevant, functional, beautiful and affordable products and complete gaming solutions to make it easier for everyone to create the setup and the home they want."Earlier this week, Aldi was named the official supplier of the Prime League, a European competition for popular game League of Legends.The partnership also sees the supermarket chain launch Aldi Gaming, that it said will "promote the e-sports and gaming scene in Germany."READ MORE: E-sports industry now worth $1.1bnIn January, French e-sports organisation Team Vitality announced a partnership Aldi France.Meanwhile German e-sports organisation SK Gaming recently partnered with Lidl as its fresh food partner.Esports Insider noted that "it seems like a natural progression to see more non-endemic brands enter the e-sports space, especially companies that offer everyday needs. E-sports fans need food, insurance, and bank accounts just like everyone else."The report also said League of Legends continues to be the most watched e-sports game by far. It accounted for 34 million viewer hours in January alone – and that's just on one platform, Twitch.Video game sales are projected to rise sharply in the next few years and analysts see great potential in the 'social/casual' games segment in particular, where the increase is expected to be around 22% by 2024, the study noted.The popularity of video games is also reflected on the the VanEck Gaming ETF, which has risen by 72.5% within the last year."Games companies such as Activision Blizzard (ATVI) and Nintendo (7974.T) have been among the major winners of the pandemic, and the end of the stock boom is not yet in sight," the report added.While COVID-19 forced many live e-sports events to cancel, some went ahead in a virtual format, with streaming sites such as Twitch and YouTube seeing a 20% increase in the number of hours streamed during lockdown.With tournaments offering huge financial prizes, top e-sports players have the potential to win big. The top competing country is the US with American players winning $41.3m in 2019. They are followed by China, which took home $18.5m in winnings last year, and South Korea ($16.5m).... Yahoo Finance
porsche1945: Watched an interview with Jeff Bezos earlier, makes you realise why companies like MKS are utterly doomed. Tired business model, huge store estate that has little value (was worth a fortune once should have sold and leased back) and was always backward looking and only jumped when it was too late. Terminal, dump and invest in growth EX UK, brexit still sucking life out of the country, has about as much hope as MKS.
xxxxxy: HL COMMENT (8 JANUARY 2021)Group revenue fell 8.4% to £2.8bn in the third quarter. That reflects the impact of on-off lockdown restrictions, which had a particularly adverse effect on the Clothing & Home business.Underlying performance in food was more encouraging, but CEO Steve Rowe said near term trading remains "very challenging" for the group as a whole.The shares fell 2.1% following the announcement.Our viewCoronavirus causes a number of issues for M&S.The most glaring is dramatic falls in Clothing & Home sales. This isn't helped by M&S' particular specialism in office and event-wear, which are the first to get dumped in favour of leggings and pyjamas.The deterioration in sales meant huge piles of excess stock were expected to be carried into next year. While it's a big relief to see the group shift more items than planned, that's come at the expense of margins. Slapping sale stickers on everything will help stuff sell, but it's a guaranteed sore point for profits. It's become somewhat of a morose party trick for M&S in recent years.Clothing & Home sales have been a rock in the river for some time, dragging group performance with it. M&S has an oversized (and very expensive to run) store estate with plummeting footfall, and a lacklustre website that fails to plug the gap.A little counter-intuitively, this is where we think the current crisis might actually help.M&S has attempted to reboot itself a few times, but this one feels a bit different. It's been forced to supercharge its efforts because conditions are so tough. This time around almost 8,000 members of staff are being cut, many stores are marked for closure and there are gargantuan efforts to integrate the online and physical stores. The latter is particularly important - coronavirus has accelerated the shift to online and if Marks wants a chance to compete it needs to act quickly. The alleged plans to buy Jaeger (it's brand and stock, not the stores), suggests a concerted effort to become a multi-brand website too.And it's not just clothes being dragged online. The food business has exceeded expectations, helped by the joint venture with Ocado. This deal couldn't have come at a better time - as the pandemic has transformed online grocery demand across the country.The food business is the key to future growth in our opinion. It's a genuinely differentiated product, and that makes it an asset. Lack of footfall in travel destinations (think service stations and train stations) and city centres is hurting sales at the moment, but longer term we think there's opportunity.M&S has put a lot of work into improving its proposition. That seems to be resonating well and goes hand-in-hand with the Ocado launch too.The final thing to note is a healthier balance sheet. This is by no means in rude health, but we've been impressed by the group's ability to keep cash flowing and net debt down, which gives it some breathing room.M&S is doing all the right things to sort its problems out. But we wonder if this gusto has come too late. Ultimately, we think the M&S brand will survive both coronavirus and the high street's revolution. But thriving on the other side will depend on whether the newfound momentum and strategic competence can be maintained.Marks and Spencer key factsPrice/Earnings ratio: 13.010 year average Price/Earnings ratio: 11.4Prospective dividend yield (next 12 months): 2.9%All ratios are sourced from Refinitiv.

xxxxxy: Analysts at UBS (UBS) have made a bullish prediction for UK stock market and sterling pound in 2021 following Brexit deal. The bank said in a note on Tuesday that the outlook for UK equities has never been brighter."The UK is one of our favoured global equity markets, particularly from an unhedged perspective as we suspect a large proportion of the return for international investors will come from the strengthening currency – our FX strategists target GBP/USD 1.44 by end-2021," said Nick Nelson, head of European equity strategy at UBS, in a research note."Including the 3.9% dividend yield, this would point to a 21% total USD return from the current level of the FTSE 100 (^FTSE)."The outlook would have been much far worse in a no-deal scenario, said UBS, "we would have had a far weaker GBP, and in USD terms, UK equities would not be a favoured market."USB created an Evidence Lab's Deep Theme Explorer to gauge sentiment around Brexit and track the major sectors and stocks that have been the most exposed over the last few years.READ MORE: Nearly '80% of UK adults' will carry debt into 2021Through this research, it found an upside to UK equities, with a positive correlation to net Brexit sentiment, particularly to those with more exposure to domestic cyclical shocks, such as Barratt (BDEV.L), Bellway (BWY.L), and Lloyds (LLOY.L). On the flip side, those with international exposure, such as Glaxosmithkline (GSK.L), Unilever (ULVR.L) and Reckitt Benckiser (RB.L) outperformed when there was negative sentiment.... Yahoo Finance
