Did Maverick find some loose change down the back of the sofa on Monday - they bought back 0.04% to take their overall short down to 3.66% of the company - ie at some stage they still need to buy back another 85,487,228 shares. Their average sell price will only be a little over £2. If prices persist 85m x 50p would be an expensive hit - plus the divis, plus the loan fee. Maverick got a nasty burn on Arm Holdings this time last year of about £126m. hTTp://shorttracker.co.uk/company/GB0006043169/all

>>>Morrisons saw improving earnings in the last three years, most are down to selling and leasing back properties this process contributed £280m to earnings when compared to £924m in underlying earnings. I thought leaseback proceeds were excluded from underlying earnings.

Interesting Walbrock thanks for that. But you don't appear to understand what went on with the Tesco accounting scandal; it wasn't a matter of delaying payments to suppliers at all, it was a question of recognising profits before they had actually been earned. Delaying payments to suppliers is a very different beast altogether and quite legitimate, so long as the suppliers are agreeable to it. Morrisons are booking their profits in the appropriate period, they are just holding on to the payments to suppliers for longer. It is a worthwhile question as to whether this is sustainable, but even if it reverses it won't materially impact profits just working capital. Oh and I would also dispute that the 70% share price rise was anything (or at least very little) to do with any potential Amazon takeover. The financials explain the shareprice, there is not really any material M&A premium in the price currently IMHO.

Having done some research there are some interesting patterns emerging from Morrisons. Morrisons saw improving earnings in the last three years, most are down to selling and leasing back properties this process contributed £280m to earnings when compared to £924m in underlying earnings. The company still own properties and has a low operating lease and rental expenses in comparisons with Sainsbury’s and Tesco. Operationally I see two weaknesses. First, net book value of fixtures and equipment aren’t written off in the balance sheet, despite £1.5bn original costs write down. It distorts the shareholder equity by £300m. Second, is average payables are at their highest of 50 days and higher than both Tesco and Sainsbury’s of 34 days and 38 days. Those who remember Tesco accounting scandal would know is delaying to suppliers were the main accusation. Elephant in the Room The takeover rumour is possible and the likely candidate is Amazon because of their partnership to supplying Amazon Fresh. That’s why the share price rose by 70%.

Thanks for the Flowerworld link - ordered 'Rose & Lily Shadow Bouquet' for my girlfriend. Some of these shorts go back a long time (Pelham over 3 years)and as you say there is a substantial short position although it has been larger. Logically you would think that they would be closing but I guess a share like Morrisons is not going to buck a market trend if the general market takes a dive from it's current high which may be what the shorts are hoping for.

The difficulties at Carillion are worth observing. This was the market's biggest short position with over a quarter of the company short. However the absolute value of the short there is dwarfed by the number of shares still outstanding here. 16.5% of MRW is over £900m to buy back at current prices. It's as if any trading or balance sheet improvements are of no value and the initial assessment of a company in trouble during the falling sales, high debt period still applies - so why should the shorts close. Or is this the same type of comment that the bulls were making on the CLLN thread. Naturally this observation of hedge-fund behaviour (by John Burford at iii) suits the bull case better. "Hedge funds are necessarily trend-followers and that is their Achilles heel. They seek out a trend and ride it - to destruction, in fact. Because they are not equipped to spot trend changes, they are always caught flat-footed when there is a "surprise" trend change - and a massive short squeeze is on that can propel the market upwards like a rocket."

hTTp://www.thisismoney.co.uk/money/markets/article-4611170/British-supermarket-shares-nosedive-Foods-deal.html Significant price action this afternoon among the grocers after Amazon purchase of Whole Foods announced. MRW dived 4% to 232p and then recovered. "Whole Foods has just nine stores in the UK so the impact on Morrisons (which has its own tie-up with Amazon) should not be too significant, and if anything could support Morrisons if it signals how Amazon might be able to help it grow market share"

Morrisons in the news with regard to executive pay - after the spat at yesterday's AGM. Shareholders have had a much more enjoyable investor experience over the last couple of years than that endured under the headless chicken management style of the previous incumbent Dalton Philips. CEO Potts doing well, so pay him an appropriate amount. However why does the pay structure require "bonus" incentives. Does the remuneration committee not believe that Potts would be trying to improve cash flow (one of the metrics to trigger the bonus) anyway as part of his job. Similarly why would increased sales, profits or any such tally be the trigger for a special reward. Why not have a much simpler structure of paying a large proportion of base salary in the form of shares - that way the aims of owners and managers are aligned.
