That would also depend on other share prices.

At a price of 109.25 MARS would gain FTSE 250 re-entry if it hits that price on 5th June in the quarterly reshuffle.

I thought that redartbmud as I have been going for the 2 for 1, but then I calculated how much I spent on drinks. I probably do drink too much, but the price of a pint was considerably more than my usual and the pub was packed so I thought it might actually be a good move offering food deals to get people in. So fortunately I picked a few up before the interims - confirming the divi was positive to me, although I certainly haven't looked at them in the detail that others have here.

Been in 2 pubs, for lunch, in different parts of the country, in the last couple of weeks. Both less than a quarter full, mainly old fossils like me, taking advantage of 2 for 1 deals. Can't be making anything on them.

Had a nice meal in a Marston's pub today, the Conqueror's March on the Ridge Way in Hastings. A new one, open about a year ago, I gather. Very encouraging.

CC2014, I suppose it is just that it looks cheap with little risk to the downside. Compared to their nearest competitor, Greene King, on a PER of 10x and a divi yield of 5.3%, MARS' PER around 7.5x and a dividend yield of 7% don't require much or any growth. Despite my moaning, that's why I hold them, for the income with some hope of capital growth eventually.

The share price continues to rise in a way I did not expect, which is to say I didn't see this coming based on the interims. I thought the interims a bit average. Ok, some more detail about the debt reduction plans but nothing really we hadn't been told before. The re profiling of the debt whilst helpful didn't do much for me as it mostly pushed the interest into later periods. I'm guessing therefore the rise is to do with the underlying trading performance and the confirmation of full year expectations. I note others such as JDW have been moaning about cost inflation impacting their bottom line so maybe MARS having this under control was sufficiently well received to merit the push up in price. Perhaps this was enough with falling bond yields globally and little risk to profits from Brexit to deserve this move up. Only most of this is not new news. Perhaps the market is becoming a little more confident that the directors will deliver what they say they are going to do. Or maybe switch to here from those selling utilities? Any thoughts anyone?

With IAS-19 you are a hostage to fortune and the markets as to when the revaluation of the pension liability happens. The except below from PWC (sorry about the rubbish formating) indicates around a £10m increase in deficit of a £500m fund for every 0.1% decrease in the discount rate. The indicated fall of around 0.3% does result in around a £30m increase in liability (for a £500m fund). If the bond yields rise again (price of bonds falls) then this will reverse. MARS is neither ahead nor behind the curve - simply accounting for the change in bond yield at their year end date. cheers Observed market practice on pensions accounting assumptions at 31 March 2019 This document sets out the market practice on pensions accounting assumptions at 31 March 2019 that PwC has observed, key market indicators and current pensions accounting developments.

Cheers quady - I stand corrected on the cost of the recent court case for pensions. However that leaves about £34m that no one else is bleating about ; or are they just ahead of the curve ?

Have corporate bond yields fallen in the period? Surely they've been on the floor for ages?

Fenners - 'The deficit on our final salary scheme was GBP23.0 million at 30 March 2019 which compares to the GBP15.6 million surplus at last year end. The principal driver of the move to a deficit is the lower discount rate as a consequence of falling corporate bond yields in the period. In addition, an allowance of GBP4.6 million has been recognised in respect of Guaranteed Minimum Pension equalisation following the conclusion of a recent court ruling in respect of this matter.'

But who on earth would acquire a business with six antiquated breweries ? Who knows they might buy another one, that would be fun.

I need this to get to 120 to break even, please god. At least they have scaled back their expansion plans, daft to keep taking on debt to expand into what, a shrinking market in the UK which looks like it is on the verge of a hardcore brexit fiasco reccession whichever way the sxxtshow now goes. The managemnt seem pretty poor like most ftse 350 dross, a takeover would be heaven. 140 take out price.

The share price has been going down for 3 years, it will feel like moving heaven & earth to get back up to that level (160p), 6 years, longer or beyond my lifetime ? RF - Please don't increase the dividend before introducing a share buy back and cancellation scheme.

I do wonder at the missing detail from the "interest rate swap" what is the cost - its all right saying that its neutral over time - but what risk are they assuming in order to gain the interest reduction ? These things do not come for free. Massive swing to pension deficit - passed off as if its not a problem - gilt rates and mortality (?) really what about the guaranteed minimum pension equation of women vs men that has just gone through the courts ? And why have I heard nothing about gilts and mortality from other companies pensions ? Debt ratio looks far too high. Yield looks good - but so did Vodafone until yesterday then the divi cut - so you cannot believe company plans for divis until you actually receive the cash ! Will read some more - I am interested in the divis but only if they are sustained.
