No, it will never be an Asos, but it does need to be a Greene King or other comparator in the sector. The reason the share price stands still is that profit growth (not revenues) has been so turgid and the Board doesn't even seem to recognise it as a problem. I've been in the industry myself so I recognise the attitudes - the sense of history, the attachment to the brewing process, a slightly paternalistic approach - which has led them to go on doing the things they've always done and to keep investing substantial amounts in brewing when that isn't where the returns are. The guy above who referred to the Fullers sale is spot on - if the likes of Fullers and Youngs are giving up brewing, they need to look at why that is and ask themselves some questions. Sure, it'll chug along, but that just isn't good enough and management need to be shaken up.

I hope so. I've been holding a small amount for a while and I'm on a 22% loss with no cash to average down. More beer needs drinking. I shall do my part !!!

I just think this is a totally undervalued company and one of the few that Brexit will not affect unless it turns more people to drink. So I can see it beating on both This will never be a Asos type share with massive fluctuations but in 3 months time I am confident it will be at least 10% above today's price

In revenue or profit/eps? They are better at the former than the latter.

Results next month Comparisons with last year must be excellent considering the weather factor and I can see a 10% rise

This is about the fifth time I have held MARS, and all previous efforts have ended in nothing better than break even, and that was only thanks to dividends. This time however I am in proper actual genuine bedouine cross-my-heart-and-hope-to-die profit, before even receiving any divis. Yay. I also like their beer.

I'm going to nervously say we've finally got the right side of 100 and are likely to stay there. A run up to 120 in the first instance would be nice.

irrelevant. you totally miss the point. they could've sold the valuable London real estate and simply plonked a brand new brewery in a cheap location elsewhere and merrily carried on brewing beer like they had been doing for countless decades before. they didn't. they got out of brewing , lock stock and barrel!

Yes - the brewery sits on several acres of prime real estate in west London! Not so for Marstons breweries - so not an equivalent comparison. Cheers, PJ

With its MASSIVE debt burden and ginormous brewery overheads, I doubt Marstons is better placed to ride out the industry downturn and growing consumer preference for craft beers than Wetherspoons which have already said they are prepared to cut prices if necessary. Do remember that Fullers just sold out their breweries to Asahi after centuries of being a brewer. - There was a self-evident reason for that. In my opinion only, it won't be too long before Marston's undertakes a major corporate re-invention and necessary evolution in view of the unstoppable march of change within the brewing/pub industry. In terms of brokers being right occasionally...... i wouldn't bet the barn on that. And any optimisim is somewhat muted with brokers at best seeing a meagre 25% upside and HSBC seeing no upside at all. Good luck but the traditional brewery/pub business model is bust and like so many outdated industries remains set for more pain as consumer habits mutate. all imo. dyor. qp

Quepassa, Marstons is better placed to ride out price rises. Wetherspoons is a pub company that has to buy its beer of others, such as Marstons. Still problems ahead but I would write off Marstons at your peril. Even the brokers, who I have little faith in are optimistic. Lets face it, they must be right occasionally.

Now that the policy is to maintain the dividend for the next 4 years, the share has become a bond proxy, heavily dependant on interest rate moves.

But sales ahead five per cent over last year due to better weather. Definitely not one to blow the lights out but steady as she goes.

CI The dividend has now been frozen for the next 4 years, so that they can continue to fund increases in executive remuneration, whilst they pay down £200 millions of borrowings

Short positions shooting up again. Around 2% shorts at the beginning of the year and now shorts are near 3.6% - having touched almost 4% a fortnight ago. Worrying recent news from Wetherspoon's about trading, costs and beer input prices Sector still pregnant with troubles. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP

Government Petition to Ban shorting of London AIM stocks. The AIM stock market is where smaller companies list their shares rather than using the prohibitively expensive main London Stock Market. This is an important market for the growth of smaller UK companies. In challenging times, shorters seek to borrow the company's shares from a holder for a consideration and to buy them at a later date. They immediately sell these shares which, due to the relative illiquid market, sends the price much lower and hence the shorters can buy them at that lower price - pocketing the difference. The only beneficiaries are the shorters and the market makers with the losers being the reputable company and it's bona fide investors. hTTps://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/242399
