According to Hargreaves Lansdowne site, mrw went down 3.85p today. Anyone any idea why?
After taken a reasonable profit, I left Morrison months ago. I believe it is time to come back for a small bite.K C
This large daily drop looks like a great chance to buy on a dip, as often I have seen a decent rise the following day or two.
The drop is related to Kantar market share and LFL figures perceived as bad here and at Sainsbury and better at TSCO. hTTps:// The German discounters continue to expand and take share from the majors but there is no tabulated like for like as opposed to purchase of new market share via new store openings. Still any expansion of stores can only hurt an already saturated market - eg recent Asda news of wage cuts or redundancy. hTTps:// The majors suicidal attempt to buy market share (now almost completely halted although MRW to open a St.Ives store next year) was of course responsible for their financial problems - whether that also applies to the Germans we will see in due course.
Kantar numbers pointing to a fall in market share? hTtps:// I haven't been keeping close tabs on the kantar numnbers since selling out earlier in the year, so not sure how these compare with trend / expectations.
I assume the drop is just due to the inflation figures published today? I can't see any other news that would impact Morrisons. Any other views? Cheers, PJ

Morrisons deemed liable in data breach case. hTTps:// Further trial would determine level of damages. MRW to appeal.

Wow got this one OCDO correct today shorters burnt to toast. Https:// How did they get it so wrong number two most shorted stock. They lost 23.98% in a day.
Http:// Short-sellers bet £1 Billion on high street decline as they target M&S, Next and Debenhams Shorts have created a bear market supermarket sweep. The Short and Distort: Stock Manipulation in a Bear Market. Https:// The Net Effect When the short and distort maneuver succeeds, investors who initially bought stock at higher prices sell at low prices because of their mistaken belief that the stock is worthless, caused by an effective distortion campaign. At the same time, the S&Ds cover at low prices and lock in their gains. Right after prominent bankruptcies such as Enron in 2001 or Nortel in 2009, investors could be more susceptible to this type of manipulation than during prosperous periods such as the 1990s in the U.S. During downturns, the first appearance of impropriety could cause investors to run for the hills much easier. As a result, many innocent, legitimate and growing companies could get burned, and investors along with them. (To learn about how you can profit when everyone else is heading for cover, read Profit From Panic Selling.) How to Identify and Prevent S&D 1.Do not believe everything you read - verify the facts. 2.Do your own due diligence and discuss it with your broker. 3.Hypothecate your stock - take it out of its street name to prevent the short sellers from borrowing and selling it. (Learn more about doing your own due diligence in our related article, Due Diligence In 10 Easy Steps) The best way to protect yourself is to do your own research. Many stocks with great potential are ignored by Wall Street. By doing your own homework you should feel much more secure in your decisions. And, even if the S&Ds attack your stock, you will be better able to detect their distortions and be less likely to fall prey to them by selling the stock at a loss. Please do your own research.
Just Eat (JE.) has a higher market cap than here, SBRY, M&S and is about to enter the FTSE-100 next week. The company acts as a middleman between customers and restaurants and takes a commission. Edit: "...the group lifted its revenue guidance for the full year 2017 to between £515m and £530m from between £500m and £515m, keeping its forecast for underlying earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation of between £157m and £163m." At least the local take-aways will be sticking on an appropriate delivery charge unlike the grocers money-losing online systems.
250p Soon !

i did same 1fox1 a lot of people will be waiting for same drop so it may not get there but we are 10% ahead with the fall regardless.
Hmmmmmmmm Sold at 235p for a tiny bit of profit. At least I've had four years dividend payments. Looks like a new downtrend is starting here. Could be tempted back in sub 2 quid
+ve Kantar Derya Yildiz, senior analyst at Kantar Retail said Morrisons' interim results show that Potts’ "Fix, Rebuild and Grow" strategy “is bearing fruits for the grocer.” The analyst added: "The Fresh Look store refurbishment plan has created spacious stores and welcoming fresh counters, while The Best and Eat Smart ranges resonate well with shoppers who don’t want to compromise quality for price. “But,” she said, “it’s not just the stores themselves. Morrisons’ USPs – vertical integration and sourcing 100% British fresh meat – are more relevant than ever as shoppers try to avoid Brexit-driven inflation or food transparency issues.” Yildiz continued: “With the recent McColl’s deal for its Safeway brand, Morrisons is finally tapping into the small box scene and doing so without bearing any operational challenges of the convenience channel. The grocer expects wholesale supply sales to be more than £1bn in by the end of 2018.” She concluded: “Cash-smart strategies and cost-saving measures spare Morrisons time and effort to focus on what matters the most: winning shoppers.”
Not impressed with these figures. No mention of profit expectations.
If the comments on the Morrison's Face Book thread are correct re them Selling Bags for Life but then telling customers that they've stopped exchanging them, they could have a 2nd issue to deal with soon!
Compensation culture in full swing as the court case gets underway on the Morrisons data breach. The company which gives them a living is ripe for targeting to see if can divert a little cash to compensate for their loss, their "distress". May as well get our noses in the trough just in case is the employee motivation. What exactly is that loss - not yet established but I'm sure the legal leeches will try and make the relevant case. hTTp://
hTTp:// Maverick outline why they are targeting retail. They believe that whatever temporary gains appear they will be of less importance compared to the, "...secular forces against their business models." So if the short targeting of retail is so compelling why have Maverick recently decided to trim down their MRW a loss? Maverick short on Morrisons peaked at 3.8% in November 2016. This equated to over 88 million shares had been sold by the company. However the average sell price will only have been around £2 judging by the dates on which the sales took place. Maverick still held 3.7% short in April 2017 but have made several recent repurchases to bring their current position down to 2.76%. Each 1% equates to about 23 million shares. So that means Maverick have lost about 24 million x whatever was the average buy back price compared to the initial short sale price. The loss at this stage must be about £8-9 million, plus loan fees and dividends. There are also a further 64 million shares to buy back at some stage. Perhaps they continue to believe they are right: "On the short side, periods of frustration are not uncommon and are typically followed by periods in which short selling is actually quite rewarding."
