Looks to me like Marks will fall below its low point I wouldn't like to place a specific target price a the moment but with the dividend cut its not yield holder. Rights issue likely to put further downward pressure and a demotion would probably send the share price under £2 !

Thanks ...I think that's already in the price ...I suspect the shareholders will be more concerned about the occado deal..the merits and the sums involved..and Waitrose flexing it's muscles to go head to head..I would personally back Waitrose!!

Speeding up store closure programme is good news... Marks & Spencer is set to reveal an acceleration of its store closure programme alongside a fall in full-year profit later this week. Pre-tax profit at the High Street bellwether is predicted to fall by 11 per cent year-on-year to £519m, according to analyst forecasts, as it was held back by falling food sales in the latest quarter. Rumours are also circulating the City that the retailer will reveal it is speeding up its store closure programme, shutting 100 stores by 2020, two years ahead of its original target.

M&S set to reveal profit falls as it cranks up store closure programme Flagging food sales and a late Easter led to an 11 per cent fall in annual profit M&S shareholder are bracing themselves for a tough set of result this Wednesday (Getty) David Parsley David Parsley 3 hours Sunday May 19th 2019 The i newsletter News for free thinkers Marks & Spencer is set to reveal an acceleration of its store closure programme alongside a fall in full-year profit later this week. Pre-tax profit at the High Street bellwether is predicted to fall by 11 per cent year-on-year to £519m, according to analyst forecasts, as it was held back by falling food sales in the latest quarter. Rumours are also circulating the City that the retailer will reveal it is speeding up its store closure programme, shutting 100 stores by 2020, two years ahead of its original target. The retailer has already closed 14 shops since the end of March, bringing the total to 63 in a little more than two years. Tough year of restructuring M&S is believed to be accelerating the closure of 100 stores (Getty) The City is also predicting like-for-like food sales for the full-year will decline by 2.4 per cent, with like-for-like clothing and home sales expected to drop by 1.4 per cent for the period. Analysts at Jefferies are pencilling in a 3.1 per cent slump in food sales in the fourth quarter after it was impacted by the late timing of Easter compared with previous years. It has been a tough year for the High Street stalwart, accelerating restructuring plans while profit estimates have fallen lower. While food sales for the three months to March are expected to highlight accelerated sales decline, its clothing and home segment is expected to report a 0.4 per cent fall, representing an improvement from a 3.4 per cent drop in the same quarter last year. “The shares are trading very close to their financial crisis lows of 2008, although for all of that, they are only down by 4 per cent the past year, which is better than the FTSE 100’s 6 per cent drop.” City brokerage firm AJ Bell City brokerage firm AJ Bell added: “It has been another tough 12 months for M&S as the company has accelerated its restructuring plans, seen profit estimates gradually slide lower, cut its interim dividend and announced a fund raising. The shares are trading very close to their financial crisis lows of 2008, although for all of that, they are only down by 4 per cent the past year, which is better than the FTSE 100’s 6 per cent drop.” The company has already announced that it expects to cut its shareholder dividend by about 40 per cent this year. Wednesday’s full-year results come amid speculation that the firm is looking to double the size of its food business, with significant investment. As part of its latest turnaround plan, the firm, which is chaired by retail industry veteran Archie Norman, is aiming to establish itself as a retailer for more regular family food shops. This strategy resulted in it securing a new digital joint venture with Ocado. The 135-year-old UK shopping icon said in May last year it was targeting sustainable, profitable growth in three to five years by closing weaker stores, re-shaping its clothing and food businesses, cutting costs and investing in technology. However, the strategy is yet to have had a positive impact on the group’s shares, which have dropped by almost a third over the last two years and put the retailer in danger of falling out of the FTSE 100 for the first time since the blue-chip index was launched in 1984.

The Bottom Line Bill Williams' Alligator indicator provides a useful visual tool for trend recognition and trade entry timing, but it has limited usefulness during choppy and trendless periods. Market players can confirm buy or sell signals with a moving average convergence divergence (MACD) or another trend identification indicator.
