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!!

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%.
