xxxxxy: Snippet fromThe Motley Fool...Marks & Spencer share price good value?People doing 16% of their shopping online is big progress. But there's still another potential 84% to go. And the M&S/Ocado venture is in at what is essentially still the start. So what's the future for the Marks & Spencer share price, and the Ocado share price?Well, M&S still carries that sizeable millstone – its clothing and home business. If M&S could dump that today, what's left would be a very viable business in my view. And I'd be able to put some sort of valuation on it. As for Ocado, there's definitely growth potential, but at a price. There's no profit. And the last time there was, in 2016, the shares ended the year on a P/E of around 135.Warren Buffett famously urges us to buy wonderful companies at fair prices. I do think there is potential for these two to become wonderful companies. But not at fair prices – I see one valuation as unquantifiable, the other as way too high.

debsdowner: Aston Martin and Marks & Spencer are value traps according to the TMF on Yahoo "There’s nothing in the recent performances of either Aston Martin Lagonda (LSE: AML) or Marks & Spencer (LSE: MKS) to reassure me that a turnaround in the fortunes of their battered share prices is on the cards." Https://uk.finance.yahoo.com/news/battered-share-prices-aston-martin-072847810.html "Too big and too slow" "Marks & Spencer is another upmarket brand that’s struggling. Struggles with clothing and reaching a new younger audience seem to be behind its troubles and explain why the share price is falling. M&S is still quite quaint. It’s online offering – even following a tie up with Ocado that cost around £750m – seems rather lacking. The group has been slow to adapt when competitors have seen change coming and pivoted. M&S is on the back foot. Covid-19 hasn’t heped. M&S lost £52m in March alone because of the coronavirus. Even fewer customers in stores and a lack of online presence will likely have hit M&S harder than rivals. The executives talk of strategies, but delivery has continued to be woeful. That’s why I don’t think the shares are likely to improve any time soon. No matter how cheap the shares get, there’s always room for the share price to go lower. On that basis, I find neither Aston Martin nor M&S an exciting long-term recovery investment. I suspect both shares are value traps. "

waldron: Is the Marks & Spencer share price too cheap to ignore now? Alan Oscroft | Monday, 22nd June, 2020 | More on: MKS Businessman standing in front of screen Image source: Getty Images. Marks & Spencer (LSE: MKS) was suffering long before the Covid-19 pandemic arrived. Over five years, the M&S share price is down a whopping 80%. And if you want something really scary, this year it fell lower than it’s ever been since the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 were born. Since lockdown, the retail rout has hit even harder. As I write, the M&S share price has fallen 50% since the start of the year. How low is too low? Is M&S oversold and a stock to buy now? To answer, I ask myself one key question: is it going to go bust? And I think the answer is a clear no. Profits are well down since the glory days, but I really don’t see much liquidity risk. At 28 March, net debt excluding lease liabilities (that is, the old way of doing things before new accounting rules came in) stood at £1.46bn. That’s for a company with annual revenue of £10.2bn. It doesn’t overly worry me. On valuation, the Marks & Spencer share price looks low, on a trailing price-to-earnings multiple of just six. Analysts, however, are forecasting a big earnings per share fall for the current year, though they do have a reversal penciled in for 2022. But right now, that seems a long way away. A tale of two businesses I see two major factors behind Marks & Spencer’s chances of making it through its chronic crisis. (Can you have a chronic crisis? I’d say M&S can.) The first is, inevitably, clothing. M&S is firmly failing to reach the younger end of its potential customer base. It’s been failing not just for years, but for decades. And that’s solidly behind the M&S share price slide. Unless it can turn that around, it’s going to keep relying on older people. Older folk might usually be seen as technically less clued up and not ones for shopping using only their thumbs. But during the Covid-19 crunch, more and more mature shoppers have been turning online. And M&S is not the obvious first stop. The other side to the business is, of course, food. And that’s going well. The nearest M&S to me is a food-only store, and it’s clearly doing great business. The tie-up with Ocado is also a very big move in the food direction, though many see it as an expensive and risky one. M&S share price survival As far as I can see, food seems to be the only hope. The survival of Marks & Spencer surely depends on it. But is that enough for me to want to buy the shares? It would be firmly abandoning the M&S that my generation grew up with. And, for investors, that means forgetting all we previously knew about it and revaluing it as a brand new business. And if a move to 100% food really is the future, what’s going to happen to all those big stores dotted around the country? There’s simply too much uncertainty here for me. And I have no clear idea of what M&S will look like in another five or 10 years. Buying into a company when I have no view of its future shape is not for me. 5 Stocks For Trying To Build Wealth After 50 Markets around the world are reeling from the coronavirus pandemic… And with so many great companies trading at what look to be ‘discount-bin’ prices, now could be the time for savvy investors to snap up some potential bargains.

johnwise: Is the Marks and Spencer share price set to recover as online retail takes over? Could the Marks and Spencer Group Plc (LON:MKS) (MKS.L) share price rise or fall as online retailing becomes more popular? The Marks and Spencer Group Plc (LON:MKS) (MKS.L) share price has fallen by 82% in the past five years. To my mind, there is one main reason for this: its lack of online retailing capacity. https://investomania.co.uk/2020/05/is-the-marks-and-spencer-share-price-set-to-recover-as-online-retail-takes-over/

florenceorbis: motely fool Andy Ross | Friday, 6th September, 2019 | More on: MKS Road signs rerouting traffic Image source: Getty Images. The giant has been slain! After 35 years in the FTSE 100, one of its stalwarts, Marks and Spencer (LSE: MKS), is to be dropped from the index later this month. This marks a potentially critical moment in the company’s enduring decline. It will move into the FTSE 250 because of the huge fall in its market value, which has been driven by a falling share price. The shares have dropped by one-third in the last 12 months and by a staggering 54% over the past five years. What are the issues? The immediate issue for the share price is that being dropped from the FTSE 100 means some index trackers will be forced to drop it, which may depress the shares further. On top of this, there are more general fears around the future of retail and the high street. This does little to encourage investors into putting money into store-heavy retailers like M&S. The shape of retail is also changing with consumers seemingly preferring discounters that have been winning market share in recent years, especially in foods. As Kantar, one of the leading trackers of supermarket share shows, Aldi and Lidl have gained 1.1% and 0.9% market share respectively since the start of 2018. Kantar doesn’t track M&S, but using Waitrose as a proxy for upmarket groceries, it’s clear that market share has been lost at the upper end over the same timeframe as consumers are moving away from premium price food stores. Then there are the problems successive M&S CEOs haven’t been able to address. “There has been a decade-long complaint by investors and customers that it has failed to revamp its clothing lines, especially within womenswear, and lacks appeal for the younger generations,” said Helal Miah, from the Share Centre. This contrasts with the appeal of high street rival Primark and online competitors such as Boohoo. It says a lot about either the quality of the management, the company culture being too bureaucratic and resistant to change, or the ingrained nature of the problems that M&S can’t seem to get a grip on the problem – especially given how important clothing is to the group’s profits. My view In my view, the £750m deal with Ocado and the leadership of Archie Norman as Chairman of the business are potential red herrings. The former looks like too little too late and there are concerns M&S overpaid to get Ocado on board. The latter relies on the reputation and ability of one distinguished retail veteran to overcome the entrenched problems at the retailer. It seems unlikely that any individual has the ability to make such a difference. Both of these are positioned as positives for investors but I don’t think they compensate for the many issues that M&S faces. Although the shares may look cheap after the sharp share price fall, on this occasion I think that low price is understandable. M&S is no longer the revered brand it was and I think there’s little to stop the share price sinking further. I’d avoid.

grupo: Investomania Where next for Marks and Spencer’s share price? Could further falls be ahead for the Marks and Spencer Group Plc (LON:MKS) (MKS.L) share price? August 30, 2019 Robert Stephens, CFA Marks and Spencer (LON:MKS) It’s been a prolonged decline over the last few years for the Marks and Spencer Group Plc (LON:MKS) (MKS.L) share price. In fact, it has fallen so far that it is now expected to be relegated to the FTSE 250. While this is disappointing for the company’s investors, sometimes it takes a period of intense difficulties for a company to become emboldened to make the necessary changes to its business model in order to improve its financial performance. In my view, Marks and Spencer is now doing just that, but it is behind the curve when compared to its rivals. Over the years, I feel it has been left behind by changing consumer tastes. For instance, it has only recently signed a deal with Ocado to offer online grocery shopping in an era where all of its main rivals have been doing so for years. Further, I believe that its investment in its website and supply chain will help improve its outlook, but that many of its rivals have been making the required changes to become true omnichannel retailers for a number of years. Therefore, I believe that Marks and Spencer could continue to experience a challenging period. I’m not anticipating that its current strategy, in spite of being encouraging in my eyes, will have a dramatic impact on its sales or profitability in the short run. But, over the long term, I feel there is the potential for a recovery due to its loyal customer base and the quality of its offering. For me, though, there are more attractive opportunities in the FTSE 350 retail sector at the moment. There are businesses that are online-focused, or at least that have true omnichannel offerings, which I believe could outperform the Marks and Spencer’s share price in future months. Therefore, I’m cautious about the company’s stock price outlook after its recent decline.
