In 2016 the CMA commented that it wanted to ban BOGOF deals to "protect consumers" who might inadvertently buy more of a product than they intended having been hoodwinked by the complex mathematics of working out if they had nailed a bargain. That the CMA thought this utter trivia worthy of an intervention surely must spell the death knell for SBRY/ASDA sailing through unchallenged. Here at last it's got a genuine threat to competition to get its teeth into. It can't possibly permit a duopoly to control over 60% of the market. For MRW/TSCO shareholders and of course the Germans this could be great news that the other two will be hobbled for perhaps 18 months while the CMA justifies its existence with a forensic analysis of all the competition concerns and then deals out a fatal blow to the deal's finances by demanding perhaps a 100 store divestment or just blocks it completely.

gia - These are the stores that Sainsbury's would most want to keep and are often the most profitable. Sainbury's have already stated after the merger has gone through 100 Argos stores will be closed and moved in to ASDA stores with a further 150 new Argos's opening in ASDA stores.

The latest Kantar figures which sadly still do not include M&S which have around 4.3% market share. Tesco........27.6% Sainsbury....15.9% ASDA.........15.5% Morrisons....10.5% Aldi..........7.3% Co-Op.........6.0% Lidl..........5.4% Waitrose......5.1% Iceland.......2.1% Ocado.........1.2% Independents..2.0% Others........1.8% As can be seen the Aldi/Lidl now have 12.7% market share.

chinese- well, certainly 250 ia chart resistance level but holding MRW at present makes sense as downside probably limited while merger speculation continues

All I keep reading is that Morrisons, Aldi and Lidl will be the buyers of any stores sold in the merger. I doubt this very much as why would any of these 3 want any of the massive ASDA stores.

scotches - 06 Jun 2016 - 19:44:31 - 1192 of 1694 Will Walmart ever give up on the UK as too competitive? Walmart took a $1b hit when they abandoned Germany in 2006. Previous to that they left South Korea. The SBRY proposed deal is not giving up completely but reducing their exposure to a 42% stake in the merged entity.

Currently Co-Op Market share stands at around 6% would bring Morrisons upto around 16.5% market share. I think this would be difficult due to the share structure of the Co-Op. However in the next few years the combined market share of Aldi/Lidl is expected to reach 18%. The next supermarket down on the list is Iceland with just 2.1% market share. I put this forward before and was shot down, maybe McColls the convenience store operator which has around 1,350 stores and wouldn't cost then too much maybe no more than £350mln and re-brand the stores Safeways. This would give Morrisons the number two position in this sector behind Tesco/Booker.

hTTps://www.esmmagazine.com/sainsburysasda-merger-rumours-analysts-said/59083 Russ Mould, AJ Bell “Assuming the Competition and Markets Authority lets the deal pass relatively unhindered – and the manner in which it waived through the Tesco-Booker deal suggests it might – then the next decision that will follow the proposed Sainsbury-Asda merger is Morrisons’ competitive response. “The defensive merger between two rivals may well force the Bradford firm to seek out a merger or a deal of some kind with the Co-Op. Although this will not make a huge dent in the market share gap between Morrisons and Tesco and the proposed Sainsbury-Asda entity, such a move would at least take Morrisons’ market share back above the combined reach of the discounters Aldi and Lidl, who continue to act as a disruptive force in the UK grocery market.”

If ASDAburys gets past the CMA will that encourage Tescorrisons...? I note that ASDA's boss in the UK is ex Sainsburys...

Morrisons won't get squeezed they are too vertically integrated. They even sell their meat to the suppliers of Tesco and Sainsburys

I can see Morrisons being far more badly effected and squeezed than Tesco... Sainsbury’s ‘in talks with Walmart over historic £10 billion Asda merger’: Sainsbury’s bosses are in talks with US company Walmart over a potential merger that would see the supermarket take over Asda, it has been reported. J Sainsbury and Walmart, the world's biggest supermarket retailer, have met to discuss a possible union between high street giants Sainsbury’s and Asda in a drastic shake-up. According to Sky News, which reported the potential deal, bosses are keen to join forces to push UK favourite Tesco down in the rankings by creating a stronger rival. It has not been established how a possible deal would work and whether Asda stores would become Sainsbury’s instead. But reports have suggested that, following the merger, the company would still be led by Sainsbury's ceo Mike Coupe. Newswires have reported sources as confirmed that the combined Sainsbury's Asda group would still be called Sainsbury's. Experts have also suggested the chains could have trouble securing approval from the Competition and Markets Authority – which works to ensure health competition between retailers. Sources have claimed an announcement is expected in the next few days. The Standard has contact Sainsbury’s for comment. In February, consumer survey’s revealed that major British supermarkets had fallen in favour due to new brands such as Lidl and Aldi impressing shoppers with the quality and value of food available. According the Which? consumer survey, Aldi knocked Waitrose off the top spot as British shoppers' favourite supermarket. Whereas the "big four" – Tesco, Asda, Morrisons and Sainsbury’s – were at the bottom of the list– with Sainsbury’s ranking last. It's yet to be reported how exactly the deal would work, but it is believed that one possibility would see Wal-Mart turn Asda stores into Sainsbury's and hold a big stake in the combined group. The combined group would retain the Sainsbury’s name, though Asda stores would continue to trade under their existing banner.

Ok I think I understand. Shorts closing to avoid paying the divi, is that correct?

Or perhaps...getting out for the divi. The hedge funds are due to pay 8.43p x 200+ million shares.

Getting in for the divi? Who knows. +13% in a month is nice though with 4% yield still to come
