Bizarre great results and falling like a fally thing
Funny sort of day, wasn't it.
Great results, expecting uplift
David Potts, Chief Executive, said: "Strong growth, including our best quarterly like-for-like sales for nearly a decade, together with another special dividend for our shareholders, shows how new Morrisons can keep improving for all stakeholders

"Special interim dividend of 2.00p, taking total interim dividend up 132% to 3.85p"

Interim results tomorrow.
Questor, Daily Telegraph today It has taken almost two years, but this column’s positive view on grocery giant Morrisons is finally starting to bear fruit. The shares have risen by 14pc since our initial analysis against a 7.5pc gain in the FTSE All Share over the same period, the dividend is growing again and Thursday’s interims will hopefully offer the prospect of more to come. The surge in Morrisons’ shares to their highest level in almost five years reflects gathering optimism over the wholesale joint venture with McColl’s Retail and the absence of any real activity from Amazon after its $13.7bn (£10.6bn) acquisition of Whole Foods in 2017. Amazon’s potential impact on the dynamics of the industry is still a worry for any would-be holder of Morrisons’ shares, and investors must always consider the competitive position of any firm when they research it. In simple terms, this involves working out why a customer would want to use a firm’s services or buy its products and whether they are prepared to pay the price that the firm wants to charge. If the company is a “price giver” it could be a winner from an investment point of view. If it is a “price taker”, the chances of it being a dud increase substantially. The success that David Potts, Morrisons’ chief executive, and his team are having in making the group more competitive – and more attractive to customers – in the face of the continuing onslaught from discount and online rivals is reflected in the marked improvement in sales. On a like-for-like basis, sales have grown for 10 straight quarters – and the 3.6pc year-on-year rise in the first quarter of this year represented another boost to momentum. All eyes will therefore be on the rate of growth in the second quarter, when Morrisons reports its first-half figures. Analysts will also be keen to see the extent to which higher sales are translating into higher profits and cash flow. For the full year, the City currently expects an 11pc rise in underlying pre-tax profits. Higher profits and cash flow should mean lower debt – and hence less risk – and also higher dividends. Morrisons even paid a 4p-a-share special dividend last year but for the moment analysts expect a 14pc increase in the ordinary distribution for the year to January 2019 as a whole. There are two key strategic issues to watch out for. First, Potts may discuss the launch of a second online distribution centre with Ocado. Second, he may provide additional detail on the roll-out of the wholesale venture with McColl’s. The original goal was to open 25 sites and get sales to £700m a year but some analysts think these numbers may now be beaten. Morrisons’ potential for long-term capital and dividend growth is still considerable and the shares should reward patient investors. Questor says: hold
hTTps:// "Following next week’s half year results, can Morrisons' supermarket sweep continue? In terms of Thursday’s interim results, investors will ideally want to see an improvement on that admittedly already impressive Q1 LFL growth, given that the second quarter covers the dual boosts of a roasting summer heatwave and England’s better than expected showing at the World Cup in Russia."
hTTps:// “With growth up 2.7%, Morrisons regained its position as the fastest-growing of the big four supermarkets. Over the past 12 weeks Morrisons cut back on promotions and also gained 231,000 new shoppers, 66% of which were more affluent ABC1 customers.” Could the toffs switching be former SBRY customers upset with declining in-shop standards. As many predicted the Asda takeover/merger could be distracting from the day job. hTTp://
Aldi is crowned the CHEAPEST supermarket in the country with shoppers saving an average of £9.79 on their basket compared to rivals Aldi has also won over 400 awards for the quality of its products range so far during 2018. Trade magazine The Grocer carried out independent analysis
hTTps:// (premium link) J Sainsbury and Asda could have to dispose of stores in up to 300 locations across Britain if the two grocers are to succeed in convincing regulators to approve their proposed merger. In a sign of the potential regulatory challenge facing the companies, an analysis by The Times and industry bodies using modelling techniques typically employed by the Competition and Markets Authority shows that there are at least 300 catchment areas where the merger could run into local competition concerns. About half of these 300 areas could be deemed problem locations where both Wm Morrison or Tesco, the natural buyers of a Sainsbury’s or Asda store, might not be able or want to buy the outlets.
hTTp:// "Supermarkets are one of the safest areas to invest..." Longtermers here (and at TSCO/SBRY) could afford a chortle at that one after the trauma of the last several years. The comment is by Gervais Williams of Miton group. However this chap was buying supermarket shares in the dark days. Fund manager parting with cash always makes an opinion of more value than broker views. hTTps://
Just seen that DMF, back to the 2013 level would be nice :-)

Short interest is now at its lowest level for 4 years (5.47%) after Melvin went under the disclosure limit earlier this week. None of these buys to close can have made any money with the share price currently 250-260.
Is MRW with extensive manufacturing and supply chain in a better position compared to other supermarkets ....after hard Brexit? hTTps:// "Having a large supplier and manufacturing base in the UK, and good relationships with those suppliers built up over many years, will be a key advantage if, as other supermarket CEOs warn, we face lorry gridlock and imported food rotting before it reaches us in the event of a no-deal Brexit."
hTTps:// hTTps:// "Morrisons’ advertising has really moved up a few levels from the days of Ant (remember him) & Dec."
Shorters doomed to failure. UK retailers' sales recovery continues as sales surge in June. hxxps:// Please do your own research...
You might wonder if our old friends at Maverick Capital have money to burn. hTTps:// They peaked at 3.8% short (almost 89m shares) in Nov 2016. After reducing their position throughout 2017 they got down to 1.45% in March this year - only to then push their position back up to 1.74% in May just in time to be liable for the divi plus special = 8.43p on each of these approx 40 million shares. Latest disclosed position is now 1.2% and they are no longer top shorter here. It is that very odd Pelham listing (unchanged since March 2014). hTTps:// Edit: As of July 2 Maverick have gone under the 0.5% listing requirement and no longer appear. Is this the end of their very expensive dabble in shorting MRW?
