kcsham: Nerdlinger - 10 Jan 2017 - 18:17 - 1435 of 1439 - 0You think the share price is high now? Wait and see what happens when the massive short position finally closes.That is exactly why Nerdlinger posted the above comments.The present share price has covered the effects of the massive short position to date.As the short will eventually be closed, the price of MRW will .......
kcsham: madoff- I wish your estimation of a price between 180 and 220 will be correct, so I could get more of MRW. However, I would like to know what your estimation is based on?Based on the momentum of the rise of the share price, I rather believe it will go up to 250 - 255 pretty soon before taking a breather.
nerdlinger: countless, I wouldn't hold your breath, it doesn't change much. Average number of shares on loan (the number of shares on loan is widely accepted as a proxy for the total short position) last month according to Euroclear was 21.76% (Sep 22.57%, August 21.70%, July 21.77%, June 21.65%, May 21.25%, April 20.40%, March 22.12%, Feb 22.68%, Jan 22.31%). The short position disclosed to the FCA (and reproduced on only includes individual positions higher than 0.5% and is, therefore, not the TOTAL short position but this) seems to show now that all the usual suspects are taking up the slack played out by Lansdowne. Some hedge funds appear to be very keen to hold short positions in MRW, even at huge and increasing losses, but they never take the total shares on loan above 23%, perhaps that is all that is available to borrow. If we have reached a ceiling to the total short position then the hedgies have run out of heavy ammunition for manipulating the share price down or preventing its recovery. And then they have to buy 20-odd percent of the shares in issue. A short squeeze seems inevitable. Both inevitable and massive.
nerdlinger: I think a massive short squeeze is inevitable here. Maybe not tomorrow or next month but eventually. The net short position is unusually large for a company if they look about fair value based on projected profit. The only way the shortholders can encourage 25% (see Euroclear) of shareholders to sell is by offering significantly above fair value and judging by their track record these guys are probably going to wait until the ship has well and truly turned around and the share price is already rampant. Hence inevitable massive short squeeze.
terminated: The problem with Morrison's is that no one can really say what their profits will be this year. No one can really say how much the burning down of their main warehouse will impact on profits. The Market Cap. is presently £4,470m (at 193p) and to justify this they really need to be hitting close to 380m in profits just to sustain this. To justify a share price over 200p would require them to beat forecasts or at least be looking at a profit of 400m+ for 2017-2018. I just don't see how it will sustain a +200p share price
oakville: Shares’ bullish stance on Morrisons and bearish stance on Ocado – see Cover, 14 Jan ‘16 – has proved correct. Ocado looks increasingly vulnerable, since its partner has opened the door to a competitor, while news flow for Morrisons has turned positive. A strong Christmas trading statement showed like-for-like sales (ex fuel) up 0.2% over the nine weeks to 3 January 2016, a first positive same-store performance since the fourth quarter of 2012, with lower prices luring back disenchanted shoppers. Furthermore, the balance sheet is strong with substantial freehold asset backing. Morrisons owns over 80% of its store base and in a recent note, Shore Capital flags net asset value per share of 152p. Allied to falling net debt, this gives the turnaround every chance of success and provides a platform for increased future free cash generation. For the year to January 2016, Shore Capital forecasts pre-tax profit of £300 million (2015: £413 million) and a lowered dividend of 5p (2015: 13.7p), building to £330 million and 5.4p by January 2017. We’re staying positive ahead of Morrisons’ full year results (10 Mar), where a finance strategy update and more meat on the bones of the Amazon deal offer positive share price catalysts.
harvester: All looks good right now .Breakout &golden cross confirmed.200 share price level not a one-day wonder.As usual there will be some down-days to come but it looks as though a new resistance level is forming around 200 .With the shares now trending upwards, the shorters will feel the pain. The large short position will be eventually be a positive for investors. Eventually a big bear squeeze will force short closures which is made more difficult by momentum buyers competing for the available shares.ftse100 re-entry, take-over rumours, Amazon deal, Ocado deal revisions, a new more competent CEO are all positives for shareholders.The negatives like competitor price competition are all in the price. Disclosure: I hold a big MRW share position.
loganair: Yorkshire Post - MORRISONS is expected to rejoin the FTSE 100 index of leading shares following a sharp jump in its share price on the news it has signed a lucrative deal with internet giant Amazon The final decision will be made on Wednesday, but judging by its share price on Tuesday, the Bradford-based grocer will regain its place among Britain’s top 100 companies later this month. Morrisons’ upgrade could depend on the performance of other FTSE 100 contenders, which include Paddy Power Betfair and Mediclinic International. It could also depend on the demotion of Aberdeen Asset Management and Sports Direct. However London Stock Exchange group said it is likely to rejoin the FTSE 100 assuming there are no mishaps later today.
rob the slob: 4seeaproblem re post 1081 "presumably, the takeover rumour and speculation was just that ..."Your speculation on the previous speculations is only that! I would not assume that we have the full picture yet. The most certain thing we know is that Amazon will launch a major assault on the uk supermarket via online delivery (and just about every other retail sector that fits with its plan for world domination)They have chosen this as their initial route in. As a MRW holder, I feel safer assuming that this may not be their final move. The winners in the end.......Amazon of course. Whilst i accept that they may genuinely feel that MRW gives them the tools they need in the long run, part of me suspects this may be the 1st act in a longer saga yet to play out. If something works for them , they usually buy it out. If they think bits of the project need to be brought in house to improve, they buy it out ( think lovefilm)Maybe they would later move to buy mrw or ocado or maybe the plan is to drive the share price of their largest obstacle to growth, tesco down before buying them and ditching mrw and ocado to flounder wihout amazon after theyve nabbed all their online customers. All speculation at this stage
terminated: You can't make more land so it can only depreciate so much. I can see a day when retailers start to develop residential property on their land to derived added value, I'm sure I heard Morrison's were planning to do this last year. Regardless I don't think Morrison's land has been factored into share price so even it devalues by 50% it would have a limited impact on share price. The current price is based solely on projected profits and when the cost saving initiatives pay kick in the price should recover to £2 ish.
