freedom97: I am fully aware Pierre, that we all breath in other peoples breath etc. My point is on helping to prevent getting the flu which can be just as deadly as getting Covid. As winter time is normally when everyone's at risk, that's why people from age of 60yrs or with health issues are invited by their GP to get the flu jab every year. So it's in the winter month's that face coverings would limit you getting the flu in public places. Luckily due to Covid, face coverings are now accepted as almost normal like they have been worn in Japan for many years. Hopefully with regards to Omicron although more transmissible than the flu and other viruses, so far it's been found to be less of a threat so finally the epidemic could end as Omicron wipes out other variants. But it's early days, another three weeks and scientists should know if Omicron is a blessing to us all or not. As those infected so far have been under 40yrs we should know within three weeks when older people get infected what symptoms they experience. So again the flu virus will continue to be the main problem, unless somehow Omicron can eradicate that virus but I doubt it. Have you decided where to invest your MKS money Pierre? I think MKS has much higher to go yet so will sit tight on my shares.
debsdowner: Proactive on Sainsburys : Sainsbury's hit by investor concerns about inflation and interest rates Investors are looking for future growth – "and unfortunately Sainsbury isn’t at the top of the list", but takeover speculation still looms J Sainsbury PLC - J Sainsbury PLC (LSE:SBRY) posted a solid set of first-half results but forward-looking investors are concerned about what's in store for the grocer in the months ahead. Shares in the FTSE 100 supermarket group hit a seven-year high this summer as takeover speculation surged, with private equity and Czech billionaire Daniel Kretinsky seen as potential suitors after rivals Morrisons and Asda were snapped up in the past year. The results showed sales excluding fuel fell in the past six months compared to the lockdown-fuelled demand boom last year, although compared to pre-pandemic levels, revenues were up 7.3%. Customers are still buying more grocery and clothing, including online, but there has been a decline in general merchandise as other post-lockdown shopping patterns have returned to the old ways. While you can’t really knock Sainsbury's for its first-half performance, said analyst Laura Hoy at Hargreaves Lansdown, investors aren’t interested in past accolades – particularly with inflation raging and interest rate hikes expected from the Bank of England (even though officials did not move the dial today). Investors are looking for future growth – "and unfortunately Sainsbury isn’t at the top of the list", said Hoy. Management stuck to guidance for profits of around £660m at the full year, which represents a 7% decline from last year. "This is particularly concerning considering the group’s lacklustre targets include the all-important festive shopping season. Christmas tends to be supermarkets’ time to shine as people load up on turkeys and champagne, but Sainsbury’s guidance suggests the supply chain issues and labour shortages this year could prove somewhat of a challenge," she added. Inflation loomed equally large over Sainsbury’s numbers. Chris Beauchamp at IG said, "it is clear that the market is worried the sector will come under greater pressure in the months to come". "While the story of US earnings season has been about companies able to pass on higher costs and maintain, and indeed increase, profit margins, supermarkets will find it harder to do this. Sainsbury’s growth of market share will be at the expense of margins, which helps explain why the shares continue to struggle in an overall rising market." For investors that believe a takeover is possible there are reasons to keep backing the company, while there remained support in the City. Darren Shirley at Shore Capital said it was a "reassuring" update from Sainsbury's shares, with the broker retaining its 'buy' rating on the shares, which trade for 12.9 times full year earnings and offer a dividend yield of 4.1%. He noted management said used the term "at least" with reference to profit expectations. "As such we believe that Sainsbury's stock offers good value for investors in the medium-term, noting that we would be surprised to see fireworks around the share price with today's update. [The board are] piloting the good ship Sainsbury well and if investors that have made a return on their Morrisons position wish to retain an interest in the UK grocery field then Sainsbury and Tesco are sound homes in our view." Similarly, at UBS, Sreedhar Mahamkali said that, notwithstanding issues such as stressed supply chains and inflation, "we see this outlook as prudent especially with the lower net finance costs and indeed expect modest upgrades to consensus. The shares may initially be a little muted with a lack of upgrade but we see good underlying momentum in the business, progress on the costs and a strong FCF which should help."
careful: So much talk of some markets being at all time highs. Dangerously so. S&P in america at pe of 28. the so called Schiller Index at all time highs. But the FTSE100 is very lowly rated. A pe of about 13. Dividend yield is high. I will hold MKS and every other share I own.
xxxxxy: Our viewA bumper trading update will be a big relief to M&S investors at a time when conditions looked challenging.Store closures hammered Clothing & Home revenue last year, and large numbers continuing to work form home mean passing footfall has remained low even as the world normalises. That's a particular problem for M&S since it has relied on city, shopping centre and travel locations, and these areas are capturing less traffic than out of town retail parks.It helps that the long decline in M&S's clothing & home business, while painful, means the struggling division now accounts for a far smaller portion of overall sales. Growth in Food sales is more than offsetting the decline in sales of formal outfits and tailored clothing - formerly M&S' bread-and-butter offering.The recovery in sales bodes well for the future, since coronavirus has caused the group to speed up long overdue modernisation and restructuring efforts. More of the business is being dragged online, and management structures and the store estate are being streamlined. Over 8000 roles were cut last year, and another thirty stores are to close. The to-do list is seemingly endless, but all the savings should mean margins are higher going forwards than they were before crisis.We're not clear how much of the buoyant food sales can be put down to the joint venture with Ocado. But certainly, the deal has done the group no harm. It's allowed M&S to ride the wave of increased online grocery shopping - something it would otherwise have had to watch from the side-lines. With a genuinely differentiated offer, we think the business has potential.Last time we saw detailed numbers extended payment deadlines with suppliers and good cost control were boosting free cash flow, with underlying net debt levels in a much more comfortable position. Still, investors shouldn't bet on dividends reappearing at their old level quickly- there's a lot of lingering uncertainty.Ultimately, Marks & Spencer is peddling harder than it ever has before, and we applaud its efforts. If the recent sales surge can be sustained, together with a lower cost base, the long-suffering high-street staple may have finally turned a corner.Marks and Spencer key factsPrice/Earnings ratio: 10.110 year average Price/Earnings ratio: 11.6Prospective dividend yield (next 12 months): 2.0%All ratios are sourced from Refinitiv.

neilhumphreys: Debb’s Duck, Mks shares are collapsing on the back of ASOS nasty outlook from a ceo who’s given up! Will the Mks ceo resign the same way? Will the Mks share price collapse beyond repair this time? Will it be the end to the British high street as we know it? P.S whats the date of the Mks half year results issued?
neilhumphreys: Like Tesco, and NEXT Mks will surprise many in the city with a great set of results for its half year on 10 November 2021. There are very few well lead retailers remaining on the high st, many thousands of shops have closed who sat on the fringes way before the pandemic! Ethical retailers will do better in the future when investors will guide money towards them out of decency and moral obligation. Not to mention a new traffic light system coming into effect on the stock exchange’s. Mks will prevail, now on a growth trajectory with all efforts going into finding and opening food halls throughout the UK and beyond. UK has a strong economic outlook with over 1m vacancies (without seasonal vacancies) Business is not cutting back on staff it can’t find workers! Wage costs may well increase but no doubt with that will come slower labor turnover and staff loyalty. Iv always used the philosophy of fewer people earning more money and considerably larger benefits than its peers. Mks will announce a strong recovery in sales and ebitda/ebit I’m sure, together with a dividend return date!
neilhumphreys: There you go again Debb’s ! Complete ignorance to the Mks demographics, the customer profile of Mks is NOT in your understanding. Mks customers are not short of money!! My Mks is solid with stock of fresh food and winter clothing with Christmas range covering an entire aisle!! Solid !! Iv never seen the Mks stores so busy!!! Btw Tesco announce next Wednesday and their sales and profit will be through the roof!! Tomorrow Morrison’s has its auction to decide who’s going to pay 7.3b + for the business. That should confirm a retail mcap upgrade for sector.
neilhumphreys: Brilliant news out of NEXT as sales +20% over 2019!!! Excellent!! TOP NEWS: Next raises outlook and promises dividend payout next year (Alliance News) - Clothing and homewares retailer Next on Wednesday raised its profit guidance and promised shareholders a special dividend early next year. For the six months to July 31, revenue was GBP2.12 billion, up 5.2% from GBP2.01 billion at the same time in 2019, and pretax profit was GBP346.7 million, up 5.9% from GBP327.4 million. Compared to last year, Next swung to a pretax profit from a loss of GBP16.5 million. Next explained it is providing direct comparisons against the relative period two years ago as disruption to last year from Covid meant that "one year comparisons are generally not meaningful". The retailer said full price sales in the past eight weeks were up 20% versus 2019, "materially exceeding" expectations. This was higher than with its previous guidance for the second half of its financial year of 6%. However, the business did warn of "some degradation" in service caused by potential labour shortages in the run up to Christmas if the UK government did not relax some immigration rules. Next highlighted that it was not currently experiencing difficulties in recruiting, although urged the government to take action to avoid future problems: "The HGV crisis was foreseen, and widely predicted for many months. For the sake of the wider UK economy, we hope that the government will take a more decisive approach to the looming skills crisis in warehouses, restaurants, hotels, care homes, and many seasonal industries." Turning to shareholder payouts, Next did not declare an interim dividend as with the previous year. However, it said that it remained committed to its long-term policy of returning surplus cash. "It is our intention to distribute any remaining surplus cash generated this year as a second special dividend at the end of January 2022. Any further dividends will be announced in our Christmas trading statement on Thursday 6 January 2022. We currently plan to return to ordinary dividends in the year to January 2023," it said.
neilhumphreys: BBC ???!!!! What on Earth do they know about retailing? Folk on here with dementia repeating themselves, a few dreaming about T/O of Mks from an Indian conglomerate to an online bookstore, both of course could purchase Mks out of their small change, but absolutely wide apart on strategy. Mks assets are getting more fluid each week that goes and flexible is critical. They have yet to resolve 30 stores that are a drain on operating expenses, however 70 problem stores have been completed. New store openings and refresh is well underway. Clothing and home floor space reducing on-going by 30% and given to food. Moody’s credit rating on Mks to be updated shortly. Nov 10’21 divi return 2nd half prob 4p only, debt forecast down to 3£b, FY net profit 380-400m on 11b sales.
xxxxxy: Is It Too Late To Consider Buying Marks and Spencer Group plc (LON:MKS)?BySimply Wall StPublishedAugust 10, 2021?Marks and Spencer Group plc (LON:MKS), might not be a large cap stock, but it received a lot of attention from a substantial price movement on the LSE over the last few months, increasing to UK£1.71 at one point, and dropping to the lows of UK£1.32. Some share price movements can give investors a better opportunity to enter into the stock, and potentially buy at a lower price. A question to answer is whether Marks and Spencer Group's current trading price of UK£1.40 reflective of the actual value of the mid-cap? Or is it currently undervalued, providing us with the opportunity to buy? Let's take a look at Marks and Spencer Group's outlook and value based on the most recent financial data to see if there are any catalysts for a price change.See our latest analysis for Marks and Spencer GroupWhat is Marks and Spencer Group worth?Good news, investors! Marks and Spencer Group is still a bargain right now. According to my valuation, the intrinsic value for the stock is £2.02, but it is currently trading at UK£1.40 on the share market, meaning that there is still an opportunity to buy now. What's more interesting is that, Marks and Spencer Group's share price is quite volatile, which gives us more chances to buy since the share price could sink lower (or rise higher) in the future. This is based on its high beta, which is a good indicator for how much the stock moves relative to the rest of the market.What does the future of Marks and Spencer Group look like??LSE:MKS Earnings and Revenue Growth August 10th 2021Future outlook is an important aspect when you're looking at buying a stock, especially if you are an investor looking for growth in your portfolio. Although value investors would argue that it's the intrinsic value relative to the price that matter the most, a more compelling investment thesis would be high growth potential at a cheap price. Marks and Spencer Group's revenue growth are expected to be in the teens in the upcoming years, indicating a solid future ahead. Unless expenses grow at the same level, or higher, this top-line growth should lead to robust cash flows, feeding into a higher share value.What this means for you:Are you a shareholder? Since MKS is currently undervalued, it may be a great time to increase your holdings in the stock. With a positive outlook on the horizon, it seems like this growth has not yet been fully factored into the share price. However, there are also other factors such as capital structure to consider, which could explain the current undervaluation.Are you a potential investor? If you've been keeping an eye on MKS for a while, now might be the time to make a leap. Its prosperous future outlook isn't fully reflected in the current share price yet, which means it's not too late to buy MKS. But before you make any investment decisions, consider other factors such as the strength of its balance sheet, in order to make a well-informed buy.If you'd like to know more about Marks and Spencer Group as a business, it's important to be aware of any risks it's facing.
