British supermarket sales increased by 3.6 percent in the 12 weeks to Sept. 10, largely driven by higher inflation and extending a run of above-3-percent growth to six months, industry data showed on Tuesday. “A 1.5 per cent increase in the volume of goods going through the tills has contributed to this growth while the remainder of the overall sales increase is down to higher prices. “The average British household spends almost £4,200 in the grocers each year so a fall in inflation, which we expect to see as we approach the end of the year, will be a welcome relief. Lidl grew the fastest, with an increase of 19.2 percent taking its share to a record high of 5.3 percent up 0.7 percentage points on last year., Kantar Worldpanel said, while growth at rival Aldi was 15.6 percent, resulting in a share of 6.9 percent. "Collectively Aldi and Lidl now account for nearly £1 in every £8 spent in Britain’s supermarkets – a decade ago this was only £1 in £25". "In the past three months almost 63% of shoppers visited one of the two retailers, up from a level of 58.5% last year.” Despite the growth of the discounters, 98% of households still shopped in at least one of the traditional big four retailers over the same three-month period, Kantar Worldpanel noted. Of the “big four” supermarkets, market leader Tesco came out on top, with sales up 2.7 percent, although its share was squeezed by 0.3 percentage points to 27.8 percent. Sainsbury’s sales were up 2.1 percent as its market share decreased to 15.7% from 15.9%, Asda rose 1.5 percent to sit on 15.4% share and Morrisons was up 2.3 percent as its market share slipped slightly to 10.3% from 10.4%, Kantar said. Co-op sales fell for the second month in row, taking market share down 0.3 percentage points to 6.3 per cent. Waitrose’s sales increased by 2.4 per cent. The retailer has retained a 5.3 per cent share of the market. Sales increased at Iceland for an 18th consecutive period and are now up 4.0 per cent on a year ago, though market share has remained flat at 2.1 per cent. Ocado grew sales by 10.1 per cent giving it a market share of 1.4%. Food inflation was 3.2 percent, compared with 3.3 percent in the previous period.

"Morrisons has enjoyed particular success with its premium ‘The Best’ line, which has enjoyed a year-on-year sales jump of 38pc. Mr McKevitt said it was “the fastest growing premium range in a market where top-tier products are outperforming all other lines”."

hTTps://www.esmmagazine.com/morrisons-interim-results-analysts-said/49146 Generally favourable analyst comment on results. MRW already trades on a higher multiple than TSCO and SBRY so more is expected especially by less committed short term traders - hence the share price fluctuations. It has been in this 220-250 channel for about a year now. Back at 240-250 before long I suspect. Note that Monteyne mentions the possibility of a share buyback at some stage - perhaps the only way to finally convince the shorters to depart.

Such a lot of detail to dissect, and overall definitely on the right track IMO. Possibly the market reaction is in the Consolidated statement of comprehensive income where despite focus on increasing revenue, gross profit has grown very little. (ie the core business before exceptionals such as property dealing, finance, pensions etc)

Only criticism from my point of view is the timid increase in the interim dividend. The 17% increase in pre tax profits is applauded and one might have hoped for the interim dividend, in the light of a savage dividend cut some three years or so ago,to show a more robust sign of a somewhat faster recovery in shareholder income. That may not be the answer to the reasons behind the share price fall. It maybe just that expectations got ahead of themselves!

Interim results due 14/9/17. As well as holding shares I also shop regularly at Morrisons. There's been a noticeable lift in the cost of my families weekly spend due to their price increases. Wonder if this will be reflected in their 1/2 year profits or whether the standard script for increases ("due to an increase in supplier costs") is actually true.

There were announcements earlier this year that 14 days would be the maximum period certain smaller suppliers would be waiting to be paid. hTTp://meatinfo.co.uk/news/fullstory.php/aid/21048/Morrisons_shortens_payment_terms_for_small_suppliers.html

Good stuff scotches I too am concerned about the short interest. One thing I notice as a shopper is how expensive Morrison's is now. It is not the cheap shop it was five years ago. But having said that the customers seem loyal so it could be the right strategy. I have wondered if the shorts are based on the fact Morrison's would be vulnerable in a price war. It is worrying the average pay time is up to 50 days, that is a long time for a supplier.

The expansion in MRW short interest targeted a company whose debt had ballooned to 2.8 billion, had multiple periods of falling sales, had successive costly strategy reverses. Potts arrived in March 2015 but the short interest kept increasing since initially it seemed he wouldn't be able to get to grips with the problems either. Look at the negative comments on here round about Nov - Dec 2015 when the share price dived to 140p. So the shorters looked to have picked a legitimate target at that point. Aug 2014 above 5% June 2015 above 13% Since then we have had reducing debt, increased sales and competent management. However the shorters still expanded and reached over 19% by Oct 2016. A lot of the more recent short interest from Jan 2016 onwards will currently be in a losing position with the share price up over £1 from the lows (unlike Carillion where they had been continually ahead). Since short interest is still above 15% they haven't really conceded they think they are wrong. Maybe it will take share buybacks or divi increases to finally get rid if the company is in a sufficiently robust position at some future point.

Just find the number of short holdings in this co. disconcerting, people questions the logic, a little like Clln., this co. has no connection whatsoever, but why is there is there so much short interest!!
