my retirement fund: I guess it really doesn't matter how good you claim your business is doing and how your sales and margins are holding so well. At the end of the day if you've got that much debt and your estate valuations can no longer be sustained and the macroeconomic climate suggests that situation may even worsen then the share price will always be underfoot.
jeffian: Ref: #2624/5, whilst an exceptionally high dividend yield can indicate that the market thinks the div is unsustainably high and will be cut, it's a mistake to think the div is a function of the share price. It's a function of earnings. As Septimus Quaid says, as long as the div is well-covered, it doesn't make sense to cut the div just because the share price is being hammered. Many years ago, when Aviva were still called Norwich Union, the company announced that because the dividend yield was so high in comparison to their peer group, they were going to "re-base" (i.e. cut!) it to bring the yield into line with their competitors. They halved the divi.....and the market promptly halved their share price so the yield remained the same! Managements should focus on the things they can directly control - growing revenues, controlling costs, making profits and paying dividends - and let the share price look after itself.
ianian4: Conflicting reports on GNK in the Telegraph and the Times, Buy and avoid, take your pick. All the bad news has already been factored into the share price. This is just money making by those in the know, match the buys and drive the price down and sell when it gets back to where it started making a few bucks on the way.
careful: Share price falling. We need some results. Hoping mars are making some money. So many pubs and restaurants closing. People not eating out as much, drinking as much, weather disgusting. Things will pick up with the weather. Well run survivors should do well.
cc2014: Hello Smurfy, You are right to raise the issue of the debt. It is of course one a contributing factor as to why the share price is so low. If the debt were half a billion lower the share price wouldn't be where it is. For me the share price becomes a balance of the free cash flow number, the interest payment and the dividend payment.
tarlok: Just realised why share price is stuck £1.03 to £1.05 ,broker note today from HSBC , hold and share price target down from £1.15 to only £1.00, explains why its about the only share down over the last couple of days .
exel: scobak, if IC are pushing GNK (perfecting reasonable) then that is doubly good news for MARS re 1. sector sentiment and 2. MARS edge on fundamentals (last time I looked). Will re-do the MARS v GNK profile re TNAV ps as % of share price, PE, yield, cover, sales growth, gearing, etc. unless it's already been done? Good luck all!
richie1218: 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.
exel: EI - don't disagree at all! have commented on CapEx criteria before. can't believe the MARS Board only has one gear on this issue, given all the experience & metrix available to them. Sense they may signal a modicum of 'dial back' with the UK economy 'weak and weakening'. But also feel their biz profile/mix and GNK's are sometimes wrongly compared. Clearly there are comparisons, but these are not total 'like for like' sector travellers. Not expecting fireworks from the 10oct17 update, but am hoping for some evidence that MARS is performing a tad better than the share price would suggest. Will look again at last time's update from 12/10/16...
speedsgh: Peel Hunt downgrades strong Marston’s - HTTP:// Peel Hunt has downgraded pub retailer Marston’s (MARS) on the back of recent strength in the share price. Analyst Douglas Jack downgraded his recommendation from ‘buy’ to ‘add’ and increased the target price from 150p to 160p. The shares rose 2.5p, or 1.8%, to 145.4p ahead of interim results. Jack is expecting profit before tax to be up 1% to £33.5 million and over the longer term for margins to benefit from ‘a shift in the sale mix’. ‘We expect forecasts to be held on 18 May, with accommodation expansion providing upgrade risk to our 2019 estimated forecasts, which are 2% above consensus,’ he said. ‘We believe Marston’s offers a relatively low risk model with a secure dividend – yielding c.5% - which should act as a support for the share price.’
