So, about 2% of MARS has been short sold? Is that such a big deal? Most adverts for providers of CFDs and similar products warn that 70% of their users of lose money. Guessing many may have done better in the current quarter? But markets will over-react in both directions, and can flip very quickly.

Septimus, There are many risks but it must pay off otherwise they would not have billions shorted.. Not sure how much the fee is, it will be confidential, but it will be a lot less that 30% per annum, more likely 2 to 5%. They will have to pay dividends however generally the share price falls by the dividend amount so that may not cost anything if the stock is bought back at a reduced price reflecting that. The skill is in buying and selling continually to manipulate the price and keep it going down with the minimum sales and likewise buying back just enough gradually to keep the price down.

There's no way that just shorting something can be a walk in the park. Shorting isn't "free", I heard recently that it costs 30% per annum to maintain a short. All the time the shorter is running a considerable risk (e.g., a short squeeze in the event of a takeover approach, simply better company news or even a share suspension). In the meantime, the lender of the stock collects a nice fat fee.

uber eats will start delivering starbucks coffees in usa next year too.. Starbucks lowered its long-term earnings forecast at an investor meeting Thursday. The company is partnering with Uber Eats to bring delivery to about a quarter of its U.S.-based, company-owned stores by the end of the second quarter. https://www.cnbc.com/2018/12/13/starbucks-partners-with-uber-eats-to-deliver-to-customers.html

Our high street has gone from being riddled with estate agents to coffee bars and pizza takeaways. Small food shops replaced with Tesco and Sainsbury mini markets, no butchers, fresh fish, or veg shops, hardware etc anymore. One of two bars closed, now again someone has a punt then it goes bust again. I guess it's just evolution of the high street - what next coffee deliveries, it already happens in abu dhabi hTTps://www.costacoffee.ae/costa-coffee/delivery/

I think the difference between the retail/restaurant market and pubs and bars is that the number of pubs/bars has been falling for some time now, thus restricting capacity. General opinion is that there are too many restaurants, hence they are suffering. And the move online is hurting those retailers that don't have a good online presence. MARS will suffer like anyone if there is a downturn but think they will do better than pure retailers and restaurants. hTTps://www.statista.com/statistics/310723/total-number-of-pubs-in-the-united-kingdom/

Because you can't buy a pint, cosy atmosphere and entertainment online? They will be a boost to sales in December as the christmas parties get going, but January and February are not so good, back to the cosy armchair at home with Marstons bottles at a fraction of a pint in a bar. Anyway, I had a recent bad experience at a pitcher and piano, ordered a half, got a pint then after correcting that they still charged me for a pint and give the change from a fiver when I had give them a tenner which they immediately corrected, this was in the afternoon when the place was only half full.

"Looking at the wider retail environment shops are struggling, shopping centre owners are struggling, why should pubs and bars be any different." Because you can't buy a pint, cosy atmosphere and entertainment online?

We have lots of land assets that at this time are sitting doing nothing We could maximise these assets with planning applications for much needed homes These actions could be a first step in reducing our debt It's a fact the City are not happy with our debt The share price reflects there concerns these current trading sub £1 could go even lower They realise the dramatic effect a downturn will have on our ability to trade out of debt RF needs to change direction or a preditor will take him out if we go lower than 80p Asset strippers could make a fortune as us the minions get F-c-ed without the decency of a kiss before hand

There are potential problems with debt equity swaps, but are we looking at a downturn in revenue? That is guesswork, casual dining and drinking are cheap expenditures compared to vehicle company purchases and home makeovers. If the country is hit whatever, Brexit offers, this will not be the first to feel the draft.

The proposed final dividend of 4.8 pence per share provides a total dividend for the year of 7.5 pence per share. Dividend cover is 1.9 times and our dividend policy remains to target progressive increases in the dividend at a cover of around 2 times in the medium term. (From the prelims.)

So, up very slightly on the day, bearing in mind this is now ex div by 4.8p. Next staging post being AGM update in jan19. I have 21/1/19 but will have to check that.

re 1138, that's why my money is on a major equity raising in the ntdf. most likely a rights issue. there's a lot more pain to come in my view in this sector. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP

That should prove expensive in the long term I'm still betting on the divi dropping 60% or to nil The debt will kill us on any significant downturn in revenue

Jane, that's the price you are paying for the high dividend?. That's the way I would look at it.

It would be prudent at the next meeting if RF was quizzed on who he works for The share holders small or large who basicly own the company or the money lenders who make fortunes from the massive interest rates we are paying them This company needs a change of direction and a massive one at that If that means RF going so be it his debt equity swap is draining us dry I'm betting the divi gets cut or stopped next results

Definitively it IS ex-dividend today (record date tomorrow).... so drop is (probably) related to that, though market is general weak.

No. It’s exdiv today. All stocks go ex div on Thursday. You had to be holding cob on Wednesday.
