I'd like them to fill the gap at £8/share. I predict that if that gap is filled, my fortunes will improve markedly.

Consumer concerns priced in at Marston’s, says Peel Hunt - HTTP://citywire.co.uk/money/the-expert-view-capita-marston-s-and-ted-baker/a1057510#i=3 The weather meant fourth quarter trading at pub retailer Marston’s (MARS) was poor but Peel Hunt said the market has priced in any concerns about consumer confidence. Analyst Douglas Jack retained his ‘add’ recommendation but reduced the target price from 140p to 125p. The shares jumped 3.6% to 107.8p yesterday. Over the past year like-for-like sales increased 1.6% despite the difficult final quarter. ‘Trading was tough in the fourth quarter, mostly due to poor weather, but we are holding our full-year forecasts, which allowed for this,’ said Jack. ‘Over the next few months, there should be greater clarity on the extent to which weather rather than consumer confidence undermined pub trading in July-September. With the shares offering a 7% dividend yield, we believe the market has priced in it being a consumer problem.’

IC renews its 'BUY' rating on MARS A lackluster trading update following a wet summer was the latest gloomy news to come from Marston’s (MARS) earlier this week. But, while the company will undeniably suffer from any Brexit-related economic slowdown, can this really justify an equity valuation on a par with early 2010, based on price-to-earnings, price-to-sales and dividend yield? Back in 2010, as the market struggled back from the worst sell-off in the past 30 years, the economic pain was extremely real and there were doubts about the very viability of the financial system. We think the market may have gotten ahead of itself in pricing-in woe. Indeed, for its part, Marston’s is looking to make £5m of cost savings and remain disciplined on pricing to keep margins up next year, while also slightly scaling back planned openings (15 pubs and six lodges from 20 and 10). That's hardly preparing for Armageddon. IC View True, there is considerable uncertainty about the outlook for the UK economy. But trading at seven times forecast earnings and offering a 7 per cent yield, we think the future is unlikely to be quite as dire as suggested by Marston’s current rating. Buy. Last IC View: Buy, 142p, 19 May 2017

That's not a bad offer I just picked up their 'volcanic vindaloo' curry - the beer will go well with that!

What are people's thoughts of a long term position from here? Dividend safe for the foreseeable?

Exel, sales and profits will be up because of investments and inflation. But its the first sentence of the update that intrigues me. "Growth in earnings" suggest eps more than 14p for YSep17, so earnings could be much higher than the current 13.7p broker f/c.

" Outlook "Sales and profits for the year are ahead of last year, and we target further growth in 2018. There is no significant change to the cost trends highlighted previously, but we have identified cost savings of approximately GBP5m per annum including the recently announced reorganisation of the pub operational structure, demonstrating that we are alert to opportunities to mitigate ongoing cost increases." Ralph Findlay, Chief Executive Officer, commented: "Our priority is to focus on quality, service and standards. We are well placed to continue to implement our growth strategy through investment in higher quality pubs and bars and through our unrivalled beer brand range supported by high customer service standards." It was stated somewhere above, on this thread, that there was no mention of 'profit' - but there was, see above para, first sentence: "Sales AND profits for the year are ahead of last year, and we target further growth in 2018". I was quite happy with that, all things considered. Have I misunderstood?

"Our new pubs continue to open strongly and the performance of those opened in recent years remains good and in line with targets. We remain confident that investment in new pubs and bars creates shareholder value, and is an important component of our strategy to achieve organic growth." Anyone who read my much earlier posts on CapEx will see why I especially liked the above.

http://www.fool.co.uk/investing/2017/10/10/2-dirt-cheap-dividend-champions/ It’s been a painful year for shareholders of Marston’s (LSE: MARS) as the pubco’s share price has fallen over 20% in value. However, this means they’re now trading at less than eight times forward earnings while kicking off a whopping 7.1% dividend yield that is still covered by earnings. Encouragingly, there are also signs that a nascent turnaround in the company’s fortunes are beginning to take hold. The company’s full year trading update released Tuesday morning reported positive like-for-like (LFL) sales growth in each of its divisions as well as the opening of 19 new pubs and plans to open a further 15 in fiscal year 2018. This is great news for the company as the sector as a whole has been fighting falling footfall and subdued out-of-home alcohol purchasing for several years now. Marston’s has fought back with a twin-pronged strategy that has seen it turn tatty old boozers into family-friendly pubs, heavy on food offerings, as well as going upmarket with other pubs and bringing in plenty of craft beer options. The group’s brewing options were also a bright spot during the year to September as it shipped 6% more volume of its own brand beers than in the prior period. Adding in the acquisition of Charles Wells brewing and beer distribution rights for £55m helped drive good market share gains. The trading update didn’t release any word on profit movement for the year as a whole but underlying earnings per share did rise 4% year-on-year (y/y) in H1. At the end of the opening half, net debt was level at £1.3bn, or 5 times EBITDA, which is in line with competitors and makes sense for what is essentially a property company. This figure will constrain huge returns of capital to shareholders but it did allow for a 3.8% rise in interim dividends. If management’s plans to increases same-store sales and open new outlets continues to work, I reckon Marston’s could be an attractively priced income share right now.

I wouldn't be to concerned about any of the Brexit rubbish and is any beer imported! I think it's all done here to that special recipe.

Retailers warn of 'post brexit gaps on shelves' says the FT - which could be good news here if beer imports recede.

slight retrace perhaps but with the divi looking intact and nerves abaitted then I think this could be going up now but as we all understand nothing in life is certain.
