The price is going up! The quote of the number of shares on loan or shorted depends on the source we checked. I do not believe how accurate the figures are is critical, as far as the trend is what we are interested.The % of shares on loan/shorted is coming down since September. The price of MRW is rising and that is what important to me and other holders.

Terminated- I visited Italy once a year on average over the past decade or two because I have a relative with his family lived there. Although I am not an Italian, I have a good feel how Italy has been changed since joining the EU especially the price changes on fruits and vegetable in supermarkets that could be compared pretty directly. Countless's posting on Telegraph, that tipped Morrison as a buy, hopefully will give you some ideas about this share. Well done countless!I have bought and hold Morrison in the past two and a half years. It gives me a very good return both in dividend payments and price gain and I am very happy about it!Happy New Year to everybody!!

Kc sham - from my experience Italy was at least 30% more expensive in everything so not sure you can make a direct comparison. One could argue they were oversold but i ust don't get the big rises in supermarkets over the last few months, i just wouldnt feel comfortable buying at this price until one of tne big 4 announced some form of results.

I see we are tipped by The Telegraph http://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2016/12/31/shares-bring-cheer-2017/ I thought I should put my mouth were my money is! So have started to shop on line with MRW - excellent so far. Their meat is the best of all supermarkets. Good luck and Happy New Year to all.

MRW closed at 230.7 today. Will it goes to 235-245 in the new year? It will be interesting to see!

Hi Scotches, excellent work.Your comments: 'Of course despite all improvements food retail is still a tough place to make money. As has been mentioned on this board at some stage the improvements have to feed into a sustained rise in profits. It's hard to see how the margins of the golden period in 2010 will be revisited. How much of the current share price improvement is buoyed by potential and actual buyback of short positions?'I visited Italy just over a month ago and did some shopping in a local Lidle shop one day in a local town not far away from Milan. The same products were selling 20-30 % higher in price there than those selling in the U K. I believe Lidle is selling their products in an excess discount in the U K to get bigger share in the super market sale. How long Lidle can continue to do that is a big question.The products selling in all supermarkets are generally turning higher recently due to the weakness of Pound and Brexit plus potential increases due to inflation in the coming year, the sale figures and profit margin should be improved as a result.

The price of MRW gone through 230, up to 230.8, can this maintain up to the end of today?If it does not happen today, I am confident that it will happen in the new year. So, I am not selling yet.

Attempts to break through 230, if succeed the next will be 235-245 and this is highly possible

Check out posts 900-1000 from December 2015 and the doomsters were out in force - the FTSE 100 had been exited and sub £1 predicted. Potts had been in charge less than nine months but the failure assessment was already made. One year on the share price is almost a £1 higher. A competent CEO has stopped making all the costly mistakes and strategy reverses of his predecessor. Some on other boards suggest that top management don't make any real difference. MRW holders might not agree. We have a year of lfl sales increases, reducing debt, pension surplus, 85% ownership of stores, improved quality of board, food manufacture divisions mean less imports than rivals, MRW are friends with Amazon etc. When Woodford was an MRW fan he cited the company's ability to "self-help" as a key attraction - it looks like it is doing that now. If the shorters were starting from here would they really be targeting MRW to the same extent? Of course despite all improvements food retail is still a tough place to make money. As has been mentioned on this board at some stage the improvements have to feed into a sustained rise in profits. It's hard to see how the margins of the golden period in 2010 will be revisited. How much of the current share price improvement is buoyed by potential and actual buyback of short positions?

I think it is fair to say that there are far too many short positions open here and that they need to be Terminated soon!

What will happen when all the shorts are closed? What will sustain the price then? What are people's expectations for profits in the next year?

hTTp://shorttracker.co.uk/manager/Maverick%20Capital,%20Ltd/all This will take a while if they are buying back 1m at a time. That's their first reverse trade since June - that one was at a profit, this one not. Why bother adjusting for such a small proportion of the overall position (about 87m).

I'm baffled as to what has fuelled the high rises in retailers over the last 3 months. There has been no news pointing to a dramatic turnaround in retailers fortunes and at most there seems to have been some news that suggests there has been a halt in the slide downwards. On the back of this shares have risen between 20-30%. Surely further rises have to be based on a firm belief profits will dramatically increase, and I just don't see how that will happen. The current market cap of 5 billion would need to be sustained by a profit of 400-500m but they are projected to make between 300-350m going forward. On this basis the short interest seems understandable.

MRW have announced the relaunch of the Safeway brand as a further expansion of their production facilities into wholesale. Shops wont be badged as Safeway, just the products taken by independents. Together with the Amazon wholesale deal this meets one of the negative criticisms of the manufacturing divisions that previously it had only one customer - ie Morrison shops. The risk then was that any inefficiences in production would be masked whereas now these new customers could go elsewhere if the MRW wholesale offering is on poor terms. They are also expanding the petrol forecourt mini shops. hTTp://retailanalysis.igd.com/Hub.aspx?id=23&tid=3&nid=16016
